That blinking light is not an indication light but only a proximity sensor lightno shit thats whats it called thanks for the info homie
I've been using A71 for 9 months and I need to send the phone to service centre 4 times because it does not charge.
First time it happened because I charged the phone with power bank. Second time, using a different charger. I've learnt my lesson that this phone is extra fragile. So I bring the original charger everywhere I go and I only use it to charge A71.
Charging port failure 3rd time and 4th time happened.
I used to be Oppo phones user for years. Those phones are definitely cheaper than Samsung A71 and I never need to send my Oppo phones for any repair over the 3 years (3 years for F1 and F11 respectively) I'm using them.
This charging port issue gave me a lot of hassle since I heavily depends on my phone for work. No games and heavy app inside all purely text, documents and photos.
I have my lesson learnt, no more Samsung phone in the future. It's been a terrible experience.
Hope Samsung fans don't be sour here. I'm sharing my first hand experience.

Protoss, 10 Oct 2021it will be updated to android 12 and further. There is a list of all samsung devices that will... morehttps://r2.community.samsung.com/t5/Tech-Talk/List-Galaxy-devices-that-will-be-eligible-for-One-UI-4-0-Android/td-p/9608163
you will find the list here, as it is not mentioned against the device that android 12 will not be the last update and it's came with Android 10, and will get 3 major release, that means 11, 12,13. But I don't believe if the device will be stable after these updates.
Imam, 18 Oct 2021Can't agree with you. After updating to 11 my phone feels faster and smoother. Battery li... moreLucky you, I got major crashes on my A71, visited service center 3 times for software update, then only device got stable. and still having issues like System UI is not responding. huh!
miles , 23 Oct 2021Just updated october security patch, and noticed battery drain especially on idle. Anyone else... moreYes, my battery life is 91% but its drains out in almost 8-9 hours on regular usages.
Well in my case, my display got out of order, I don't know why, almost 1 month after the warranty period ,I got it changed. Lucky me, I'd purchased extended warranty. and now after 3 months of that service the USB port is malfunctioning, phone is not fast charging , yet it show fast charging but no. Will get it replaced soon when the part be available and battery life is showing 91% but phone lasts about 8 hours on regular usage after a full charge of 2 hours. And it heats so much as well and it lags way too much when doing extensive work as well, few time I got a notification of System UI is not responding and for once it restarted automatically.

Anonymous, 20 Oct 2021I don't agree. Android 11 is actually great on this and other Samsung phones. And if you ... moreI forgot to mention that you can use a usb c to usb c cable and connect to another phone to enter boot menu, but that is a hassle especially if you don't have a spare phone. Also you can use zarchiver apk to copy, paste and move folders on data and obb folders in samsung file manager. I like the leeway in android 10, and yes android 11 brings a lot on the table but in return removes some features as well.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2021I don't agree. Android 11 is actually great on this and other Samsung phones. And if you ... moreYour opinion makes sense in some aspect, but the fundamentals in making android 10 better is the ability to enter recovery mode without needing to connect to your pc. There's always a possibility that an android can cause battery issues and that's what recovery mode is the best option to fix the issue. Also the ability to copy, paste and move files in samsung file manager on data and obb files are gone. To each his own, but to me, I prefer android 10.
zack, 16 Oct 2021I don't recommend updating to android 12. Android 11 is already trash compared to 10, and... moreI don't agree. Android 11 is actually great on this and other Samsung phones. And if you want comparison with the Pixel phones' 'pure' Android 11 implementation, Samsung's OneUI 3.1 (based on Android 11) is actually MUCH better with ability to hide that stupid white/gray Google gesture bar at the bottom center, and ability to hide both the status bar and navigation bar through ADB commands which Google disabled starting Android 11. There's actually more but suffice it is to say I don't like Google's version of Android 11 even if it's the 'original' version of android Google intended it to be.
