Sammyboy, 26 Jul 2020Guy, A71 Or Nord, Nord looks cheaper but dunno what to buy? I'm a samsung user for years ... moreNord is not cheaper and based on gsmarena.com's price list, Nord actually starts at $449 for the 64GB while the A71 starts at $374 for 128GB. The price of the Nord is actually the same as the price of the Poco F2 Pro 128GB!
The 90Hz screen and OIS in the Nord may be appealing, but in reality, they're overrated and don't add much to a better user experience. The processor may be faster but the A71's SD 730G isn't bad by comparison. And 5G may be something that won't be available in your country in the near future.
Also, I'm not sure you'll be happy with the Nord's lack of (1) FM radio, (2) headphone jack, (3) dedicated micro SD card slot and (4) Widevine L1 certification - which allows wireless screen sharing of offline Netflix downloads and other offline DRM encoded movies to big screen TV's.
Also, the Nord has smaller screen with dual punch holes (making it uglier) and a smaller capacity battery of 4115mAh only vs. the A71's 4500mAh.
To sum up, the Oneplus Nord is just not worth it. If the 128GB model were cheaper than the A71, then maybe you can consider it if you don't care about micro sd expansion, headphone jack and all those I've mentioned above that the A71 has that the Nord doesn't. Now if you really want a flagship grade phone for the same budget, the Poco F2 Pro is a better buy for the same $449 asking price.
Guy, A71 Or Nord, Nord looks cheaper but dunno what to buy? I'm a samsung user for years but nord specs looks promising. Does oneplus has same quality build as samsung?

As I said A71 can't satisfied someone use to S8.
Just got my A71 Today, and by the way.. for those that are curious.. it does work with CDMA towers. I am a Total Wireless customer over 3 years now, and it uses Verizon only Towers which is CDMA only.. and I moved my Sim from my S7 into the A71 and it works perfectly fine, Calls are clear, Texting works, and Data Works.. sooo, i don't know why it's being advertised as GSM only when it does seem to work well on CDMA network.. does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
Just bought my wife this phone yesterday (the 8/128)... We are very happy with it.. and since her last phon is the galaxy J7pro, switching to the A71 was a huge step up in performance.

I did the 'atomic bomb' solution, the solution of last resort (full factory reset) to try to fix the camera app problem where in the camera app crashes in PRO camera mode when you set a manual shutter speed of 1 sec or longer (1 sec, 2 sec, etc. up to 10 sec), and surprise, surprise! The problem is fixed! The OneUI 2.1 update with June 2020 security patch was a big update, so it must be an update glitch. Now if only Samsung also included manual ISO and focus in video mode or at least a focus lock and exposure lock, then video recording would have been a much more pleasant experience like having the excellent new manual settings in photo mode.

My A71 is the snapdragon 730G model - 128GB Snapdragon 730G version model SM-A715F/DS. It's made in Vietnam. The camera crashes in PRO mode when I set a manual shutter speed of 1 sec or longer (2 sec, 4 sec, etc.)
I already tried clearing the camera app cache and data, uninstalling and clearing other apps from memory so that there's plenty of RAM left (force stopping some background apps), rebooting phone and giving the Samsung camera app all the permissions it needs. But still, the camera app crashes at shutter speeds 1 sec or longer in PRO mode.
Maybe the camera module installed in some A71 variants are incompatible with the long shutter feature of the app. Samsung has been known to put different components for the same phone model. (Ex. Flagship Note models based on Exynos have different camera sensors to those based on snapdragon.). Either that or there really is a batch of A71's with faulty camera hardware. I mean there were focus issues on some Samsung flagship S20 ultra models. I'm not discounting the fact that there could be similar hardware issues with some A71 models as well which Samsung does not like to admit. The last few security updates had 'camera improvements' in the update log so there may be camera issues in some A71 models/variants Samsung does not want to admit. It's weird because even a third-party camera app with camera2api enabled also doesn't offer shutter speeds of 1 sec or longer. At most, it offers 0.8sec. A factory reset is the only thing I haven't tried. I'll try it to confirm if it's just a software update glitch or if Samsung is really hiding camera hardware issues in some A71 models.
i also didn't had camera crash and i have the June 2020 security patch, i tried everything in Pro mode, also 10 sec shutter took couple of photos (also in 2, 4 secs..), never had an issue like described, isn't bad to check your applications, anyway my A71 is just 10 days old, still learning the camera, so far is superior phone
