Being able to connect the ones you love during the holiday season is a challenge. Smartphones have made being close to family and friends an alternative to physically being together. Having the right device to get the job done is key to making this process work well. Samsung Canada’s Galaxy A70 smartphone is a powerful yet affordable device that provides features people are looking for in a smartphone to be closer to the ones they love. They asked my family if we would like to see if we could connect with each other this holiday season using this device and we could not wait to try it out!
Connect During the Holidays with Samsung Canada
Here are some of the features that the Galaxy A70 smartphone have to offer to help connect my family:
- Infinity-U Display
- Triple Camera
- Superfast charging
- Fast CPU speed.
Viewing is big deal with Samsung Canada
Where on the hunt for a smartphone, one of the features I love to have is a big screen. The Galaxy A70 boasts a 6.7-inch full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen. Its SAMOLED Infinity-U Screen which brings looking at your phone and streaming videos and games more to life.
Whether I connect with loved ones on a video chat or am viewing a great movie, the quality of the images are sharp and clean. I was floored by how nice images and photos come out on this screen. Viewing shows and films are lifelike.
Triple the camera fun
It is three times the fun with the cameras on the Galaxy A70. Three cameras helps users capture larger than life images. An Ultra-Wide Camera gives a 123-degree view for Ultra Wide panoramic shots. Its 32MP (F1.7) camera provides bright, clear photos all day. The 5MP Depth Camera works to adjust the depth of field and taking those intimate shots.
These cameras are really easy to use. I love how, with the use of my fingers, I am able to make adjustments to help me capture beautiful shots. One of my favourite functions to use when snapping pics on this phone is the light adjuster. All I have to do to add or remove light from a photo is slide the light adjustment bar to get the perfect picture. Taking photos helps my littles and I connect through the memories we capture.
Who doesn’t like taking selfies? Adding an extra bit of personality to these shots make taking them so much fun! Users can create and personalize an AR emoji, then they can take a selfie in Mask Mode to bring their emoji into the real world. People are able to decorate shots with AR stickers, stamps, and frames for photos to add a bit of whimsy to their shots!
My kids and I love creating mini versions of ourselves with this feature. It was funny to see how we looked as characters and to get to change how we looked. We found it easy to go through this feature and to see us in different situations.
I am not a fan of my phone when it is almost dead. When on an assignment or on-the-run, being without power on a smartphone is not ideal. The A70 is equipped with a 4,500mAh (typical) battery (This depends on the amount you use your smartphone and other factors). This allows this device to handle more video and more pictures. This smartphone has an efficient 25W Super Fast Charging technology your device is fully powered, and ready to go in a flash.
It was so great to be able to get charged up and be ready to go with the A70. It took about an hour for my device to go from being at a low percentage of power to fully charged. This is great, especially when I forget to charge my phone the night before a long day at work.
Connect with less worries
Connecting with loved ones on a smartphone is a huge draw for owners to look out for when choosing a device. I would like to feel reassured that your phone has my back while I use it. The A70 boasts two fabulous features to help protect users while they use this phone.
The Samsung Secure Folder allows users to create secret files on your device that is encrypted and secure. It provides and extra layer of protection to the files, documents and photos you want to keep hidden. I loved being able to store certain files and lists I want kept away from my kids to while they use my phone for play.
Users are also able to personalize the protection on their phone. The A70 provides the ability for users to hold their phone up to their face in order to unlock your phone. It works with a Face Recognition technology to guard your phone from allowing others to get in to your device.
There is also an on-screen biometric fingerprint scanner that can fingers in a wink of an eye. This provides quick and simple access to your device when you need it.
I personally did not use the Face Recognition technology or the on-screen biometric fingerprint scanner. They are great methods of security to make your phone private and personal to the user. I am happy with being able to use a difficult password to access my device.
An assistant at your fingertips
Bixby is the assistant that is built into the A70 that helps users to use their device more efficiently. This feature manages phone features so users don’t have to navigate through their phone to find something. All users have to do is speak to Bixby for assistance!
My kids loved meeting Bixby and having it answer their questions and connecting them to different areas on this device. They found Bixby fun to use and engaging. It is a great tool to have on hand!
Connecting made fun and easy with Samsung Canada
The Samsung Galaxy A70 is a fun way to connect to the ones we love during the holiday season and beyond! I love being able to stream movies and television shows with the help of its SAMOLED Infinity-U screen. Taking photos is a snap with this device’s triple cameras and AR Emoji feature. We like using the security folder on this phone to keep saved documents and files private. Bixby helped my kids get around this smartphone easily. We are so pleased to have this powerful little phone! Connecting this holiday season is made more fun because of it, and since it is affordably priced, it can make a great gift idea!
