From my point of view: Decent battery life: Good video playback quality, Nice camera shots Bad things: Unwanted glitchy video game performance
Flagship screen,good battery,fast enough,light,good camera,no issues after 3 years and looks like new because i use protective glass and skin,fancy glass/metal heavy phones are not for me, light phone is premium. After 3 years battery still last 2 days. Sad that Samsung
dosnt offer light phones anymore.
Oliver, 30 Jul 2023A real shame Samsung haven't done a direct replacement for the A41. To get a similar size... moreI agree except even A41 was a little bit too big (too long). This policy makes them lose customers to other brands and second-hand markets.
I changed mine A41 to something other after less than 2 years of use because of frequent hardware faults. Over time the top speaker got very quiet, so I replaced it ... and the new one also got very quiet - this was the reason to replace the entire phone. Furthermore, over less than 2 years (actually over the first year of use) also the USB-C charging port kept breaking and had to be replaced 4 or 5 times. Besides these faults the phone was a quite decent successor of A3 2017 (A3 had better size and weight, it was just right whereas A41 was just a little too big to operate it using one hand, A3 was waterproof and had a more scratch-resistant screen, on the other hand A41 had ultra-wide camera absent in A3 and a better main camera).
Great phone, she runs great. however, battery got suddenly bad and she got slower verrryy quickly. I think that was intentional. But it runs great, play games brilliantly and is pretty durable. Would recommend. Just get a micro SD card with it to compensate for only 64 gigs of storage.
AND KEEP THE CHARGE PORT CLEAN.
Charliezard, 07 Sep 2022Solid mid budget phone with a great display for that price but after two years the USB port ge... moreyep, same issue here. I imagine it is just poor design or something. I just cleaned mine out with IPA and it worked good as new. Use a toothbrush and IPA to fix the thing.
The september security update is already available, I supose that the next one will be the last one
This phone is great! Small size, easy weight, cheap, uses battery sparingly
Full charge enough for a whole day of active use for me with maps, photo and browser
once a fricking time it dies when I'm watching a dankpods video, CURSE YOU SAMSUNG >:(
A real shame Samsung haven't done a direct replacement for the A41. To get a similar size you have to get the much more expensive S23.
Performance was decent when I first got it in 2020, then when the new updates came it became obnoxiously slow and battery life became very poor. Even a factory reset wouldn't solve the issues. Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but definitely smells like planned obsolescence to me. Got a new phone from another brand recently as I don't trust Samsung after this experience. Updates shouldn't degrade your phone, they should improve it. Completely ridiculous and scummy behaviour from Scamsung.
updates till summer 2024
How long will this phone receive security updates?
Decent phone for the price,if you want a good gaming experience run from this phone like the black death.games look decent but if you wana install games (cod,pubg)say goodbye to your memory since it only has 64 gb and it does not have 5g.if you have the money , i reccomend getting another phone wich has 5g and 128 gb.
Does anybody know if the camera on this has a light painting feature?

Rick, 12 Dec 2022nope, no android 13.....be happy with 12
When I received my A41 it came from Finland (according to Samsung Tech Support) via Amazon. There is no Slo-Mo function on the camera. It will become available when ever Finland issue it as an update Anyone (in Finland maybe) now when that's likely to happen. Had the A41 since 2020 and still waiting..
Update with january security patch is already available
