Too much lag
Here list of apps I removed, and that makes me love this phone now.
The only thing I'm not sure was a good idea, is removing "Edge", because now I no have light on the screen for notifications (this phone no have led notification) and I think light notifications was somewhere linked to Edge.

I have since 2 weeks now, and it's really a very good phone:
slim, 2 sim and microSD slot.
The problem is that it's full of bloatware (Samsung)
But removed 90 (yes 90!) system apps with ADB AppControl (no need root)
It's very easy, you only need a PC, connect your phone, and remove everything.
Also removed message app (I use the google one), and I also use the google phone app (but nor removed the Samsung one, because not sure if can makes prob or not)
Now everything work very good, no lags or problems I see other people complain about.
The camera is ok, phone works really good (WiFi tethering is about 8 times more speed than with my previous phone, BQ Aquaris M4.5)
The screen is perfect, and also fingerprint works very well.
I wasn't sure I would be happy before buy it, and I was very frustrated by Samsung bloatware (same bloat google, everything is double, like galaxy store, galaxy cloud, galaxy pay, phone and message app, etc) but since I removed nearly everything I'm really very very happy.
For people not sure, my advice:
buy it and debloat it... or not buy it!!
My A41 is stuttering when Im scrolling really slow. This must be a samsung software issue. App is irrelevant, anywhere. No good phone. Better would have bought pixel 4a. 4GB RAM is also not enough. Coming from Galaxy S7.
Light, Compact Phone, good for the price and Nice design. I like it. And the screen is awesome.

Best Compact Phone for less than 200€
I have been an A3 2017 for almost 4 years and this A41 is the only phone with a decent size and features nowadays, however I don't find the notch pretty... Has someone changed from A3 2017 to A41 and what are their thoughts?
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2021did this phone ever got one ui 2.5 update? Yes 8.1.2021
Very happy with it, upgraded from a Mi A2 Lite due to a similar
form factor, great display, performance smooth on all the apps
I use (dont use for games), FM radio allot more sensitive than
the Xiaomi, Camera better aswell.
