it's been a month since i bought this phone. still is fantastic. my previous phone was ASUS Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro, so when i bought this, everything was an 'upgrade'. i wouldnt bother buying a flagship tho. i'm contented with what i have right now. i can use this for 3 or more years before i upgrade to newer models.
Steel, 22 Jun 2019Guys A70 vs Nokia 8 whats is your opinion nokia 8.1 is much better
I'm looking at this phone Vs Redmi k20 ( Mi 9 T in EU) to replace my G7power.
This A70 I can get for free my phone company pays for it whereas the redmi will cost me 350.
What should I do?
Most important aspect for me is battery life, but of course all the rest is important

Malik-T, 23 Jun 2019Help req... Samsung A70 25W Original charger does fast charging upto 85% then it becomes reall... moreIt's a security feature to maintain battery health, you can just unplug after 90.
I want this phone, 23 Jun 2019I've been sitting here comparing it to the iphone 6s and it is clear this is better. Especiall... moreJohn 6s is better than this as it's an iPhone you get life time updates and the ecosystem and a lag free experience and the camera of iPhones in general are better than any Android phone. Don't compare the with mid range.
The only pro thing on this phone is the screen and that's it. Besides that everything is hot air. The antutu score is not 170.000 but 168.001 ish no matter what settings, there are some bugs in the software, even with the 1 may update that allegedly fixed fingerprint and camera. The fingerprint is still ~70% working, even with registering the same finger 3 times.
The camera is the worst problem of this phone, as i have read that well it's not that good. But boy, was i surprised. The camera on my j7 2016 is better than this camera by a landslide. The detail is nowhere near that of the j7.
It's just bad. Pro mode can't use the flash, normal mode can't use the flash, it`s just auto or off. (All you need to do is use the camera in 12mpx and you get the mighty force flash, you just need to forfeit 12 mpx, ARE YOU STUPID??) And wow does this camera overexpose! You can fool the camera by putting your hand in front of it to force the flash, but that's no way to make pictures. I tried the google camera app and the pictures are better so it can do more in theory. But how is it possible that the pictures that the gcam gets out, that are locked for 8mpx are better than the pictures the camera app does, at 32mpx. There is no contest, the difference is in your face. wow, it's there, short range, long range, the pictures are faded and soft with the phone camera app.
To use video in wide mode you need to first go to picture mode, select wide, then go to video and start recording, which is obviously a bug. You can't use flash in wide mode, and also the wide mode has no auto focus, you just press the button and it snaps a picture.
I returned the phone. Besides the screen that is the ONLY pro here, you get multiple cons, bad camera software, plastic back, plastic frame, bad speaker sound, poor vibration, and a BIG price. And the battery is rated for at least 4400, everything over that is not guaranteed. This phone will be worth the money after a 30 to 45% price drop, until then, look elsewhere.
I've been sitting here comparing it to the iphone 6s and it is clear this is better. Especially considering the price. Can't wait to purchase it!!
Help req... Samsung A70 25W Original charger does fast charging upto 85% then it becomes really slow like 1% per hour but dialog box keeps sayin Fast charging.. is anyone else facing this issue? or know any solution.. and Sometimes it does charge upto 100%
Syl, 20 Jun 2019I'm considering Samsung A70 and Xiaomi Mi 9T (aka K20). Xiaomi has a lovely camera, but Samsun... moreIt depends, if you prefer only hardware i think 9t is better. Don't have that phone but had the f1 whose overall performance and camera was much better than I expected. Don't worry about brand you won't use ANY phone for more than 2 years anyway, even 1lakh RS iPhone.
But Samsung phone software wise are better and had a wicked 6.7 inch AMOLED screen and has Samsung pay which is quite useful if you like digital payments. It works better than paytm or phone pe.
I have been using a70 for one week . At first two days battery was good 7% battery was used for one hour after the 3rd day tmits almost take 12 to 15%battery in one hour
is it normal? if not is there any solution? i have already reset mu phone but its not working

mieda, 20 Jun 2019seriously?? i just thinking want to grab this phone ...No its not. I'm using a70 right now and I can say at least half or 3/4 volume from a70 is the same as other phones at full volume
S . SUDHAKAR, 21 Jun 2019As if you are a swimmer !!I laughed louder than I should have..
nooneqwert, 21 Jun 2019a70 or a9 wich one yall recommend? a70 is much better
DJ FROST, 21 Jun 2019correction it has amoled screen not super amoled so A70 screen is much neater and smoother:)Super amoled it's just the name Samsung uses to make it sound fancier than it is. There isn't really a difference and even if there was, i doubt the average user could see any difference. This looks like an interesting phone, kinda big though and from the reviews it seems that the cameras aren't exactly great.
