Unfortunately I'm not sure that's right. My A70 shows LTE near the signal strength indicator but AT&T has on more than one occasion told me that their network sees my phone as only 3G. The 6 different people I've talked to can't explain why it's seen as 3G, and I got six different reasons trying to explain it.
AT&T sent me new phones (low end Alcatel) free of charge but I'm not even sure I'm going to stay with them since no one seems to be able to answer my questions. I pay too much money each month to put up with this kind of crappy technical support.
Galaxy a70 is an awesome phone. Since getting mine its been all smooth sailing. Its only fingerprint thats troublesome.

ABSOLUTELY DISAPPOINTED with Samsung because of this phone. For this price, terrible performance, slow, terrible camera, Poor build quality, etc. I've been a samsung user since the 2012. Terribly disgusted that samsung does not treat current Mid-range users well.
Will never support samsung again.
I was just told by AT&T that my phone will no longer work after 2/22. Anyone know
if the phone will be obsolete after that?
I bought this phone last year for my birthday and also for my wife, what I must say is that I never regret buying it photos and videos they're very awesome,love my Samsung a70.

They sent the phone off for an in depth check and they verified my buddies claim and sent him a top tier a71 with a waterproof case and screen protector and an sd card. But he had bought the phone from samsung directly. The phone is a great phone but those of us in high humidity environments have to be careful. I am sorry to hear of your difficulties and I hope that they quit playing cat and mouse with you. I would definitely leave a very poor review on their site if I was you. also please look into filing a BBB claim against them.

Increase touch sensitivity and make sure to have your finger pressed firmly with the nail slightly closer to the screen it r as rely takes me more than one try to get it right.
If your cache is full it may do that, also go into settings - device care and optimize your storage. I have had no problem with mine whatsoever.

As well as multiple of the same finger I use a glass screen protector I know that after putting it on I needed to redo all fingerprints and I have no problem unless my finger is super wet or dirty which is rare. Oh and there is a setting to increase touch sensitivity. I've had the phone going on 2 years and it still kicks ass no battery issues it lasts almost 2 days with hotspot on watching youtube simultaneously love my a70 just wished it could reverse charge my watch and headphones.

The fingerprint reader sometimes takes a while and it is precise so you have to leave your finger on it long enough to allow it to read. Most of the time I use facial recognition anyway.
This is a fantastic phone, and a steal for the price which is now 230.00 US or less .
I received mine and I am extremely pleased. The facial recognition works very well, and the cameras are excellent. It has a decent weight to it and feels substantial. The screen is just excellent and I no longer need reading glasses to use my phone.
The the onscreen finger print reader is touchy compared to a dedicated finger print reader like older phones have. I had no problem with fingerprint readers on my previous pixel phones, but this one consistently take 3 to 5 tries to get it to work.
The battery life is excellent, and so is the built in 128 GB of storage. I can add a micro SD if I want but 128 GB is probably ample space.
The phone is very quick and responsive and pleasant to use. This is an excellent bargain.
Very bad experience of buying this model. Finger print sensor doesnt work, it freezes and dont respond for number of times a day, contacts widget dont work. Total failure it is.
I had a A70 that I purchased from Xfinity. It failed over and over after a month or so. They reset it over and over. They changed a chip twice.
They finally told me I had a A70 and it had latent defects. They said they were going to replace the phone with another type. They sent an A 71. They ask me to send the A70 back. I did. They sent it back and said it had been in the water. It had not. I am very careful and I had an otter box cover. It never got dropped or even damp. You ask for help and see what you get. I've got way over 40 hours time on the phone trying to get it replaced. They said they had pictures. They promised to send them showing water damage. They never did. I have asked and asked but they have not sent the pictures. I plan to take the phone to an expert in Huntsville, Al with the pictures and determine the truth. I did not get water on the phone. I was talking to a lady just a few minutes ago. She said she was going to refund the phone cost. She said she had to put me on hold for a minute. They are telling me now over and over that it will be over 100 minutes. That I should call back later. I have never had this kind of problems and I am middle age. It has been over a half an hour and they still it will be over 100 minutes. It has been 48 minutes later and they still say it will over a 100 minutes. I did get her name. You should do the same. They often hang up on you while you are waiting. Make notes, Were they drinking or on dope. All you can do is share your opionion.
I purchased an Otter box cover trying to protect the phone. The A70 cover won't fit the A71
phone. They told me early on that they would issue credit for it. They never have. All that I am sharing is based on my experience and opinions. I hope you have better luck if you decide to venture into this area. It has been 54 minutes. They are still saying I have over 100 minutes. I try again tomorrow.
