I have the phone for 1 week now and the battery I can say is performing very poor. Just got it to 100% then after 1 minute suddenly went to 99% and after 5 mins suddenly went to 98% just on standby mode. Can anyone please explain me why this is happening?
My device is always optimized (no background processes running). Every app (even the useful ones) I have put to sleep, which means I'm sacrificing on not getting the notifications when the internet is connected as those those apps are put to sleep but I did it just to put my battery on right track. Still no significant benefit.
Standby drain is the biggest issue I'm facing beside 1% drop every 10 mins light use. Early 2% drops for no reason at all. At night time, I see at least 3% drop in 4 to 5 hours standby with wifi off and zero brightness and dark mode on and always-on display disabled.
To everyone complaining about the Samsung Galaxy A71.. I urge you to go and check if you really bought the original one because mine is working perfectly fine with no issues. I'm loving the phone. Kudos to Samsung

TheMan, 12 Jul 2020I just bought mine recently and am experiencing quick brain drain too.. same thing happened wi... moreSame is the case with me. I got a new phone on 7th July and from day one I started having the battery issues. I tried calling the Samsung people in my country and they just advised me to optimize (like we have never heard of this thing before) and when she couldn't give me a proper answer, she said this looks more like a software issue and it will get better with new update.
I'm having 1% battery drop every 10 mins for just reading comments on XDA developer or GSMArena with brightness to 0%, no extra app working in background, have put all the apps to sleep when not in use and no multimedia use. So, when I'm using Chrome, I'm only using Chrome. When I'm watching Youtube videos on app with 20% brightness and 60% volume, I'm having 1% drop every 7 to 8 mins. I see variability between each % drop. Like for example, sometimes it drops 1% at 4 mins interval and after that it will take 8 mins to drop a percent.
I have never been so confused in terms of battery life before. Someone from Samsung should at least come forward and explain to us what is going on.
From the reviews, the new updates doesn't have much to offer in terms of battery life. I haven't gotten the update yet.

If you want to show the message without unlocking the phone.
Setting - Notifications - scroll down to bottom - Notifications (Lock Screen) - View Style - choose details
You message will appear without need of unlocking your phone, but this also mean everyone can read your message, if want to disable it do the same step & choose icon only.
Hope this help.
Guys, Why is it that when my phone is locked and I receive a call/message I can't see the highlights/content of what I received when I press the side key, touch the screen or even swipe down I will have to unlock the phone entirely to see details of anything I received this is unlike the previous Samsung I used. Please is this same with you all or there is a way to set it?

Anonymous, 14 Jul 2020Is A71 shock resistance?No you can't throw you phone from 20 feet & expect zero damage.
Kovac96, 13 Jul 2020Does it have led notification or noch light?LED notifications light is 2017 technology, time for you to move forward from J series phone, this is 2020, there is something called Always On Display.

Let me guess this is your first ever phone with full screen, you last phone is those with physical proximity sensor like J7 Prime.... lol
Kovac96, 13 Jul 2020Does it have led notification or noch light?None, but it has edge lighting. The edges of screen flashes light for notification.
Is A71 shock resistance?
