I had been looking for a new phone, to replace my Samsung Galaxy S5, for the last 6-7 months.I didn't want to pay more than $300 or so. I looked at the OnePlus models, the Google Pixel andthe Samsung Galaxy A-line (A20, A30, A50 and A70). I was leery of this working for me after readingsome of the reviews. I have Cricket Wireless in Minnesota and also wanted to be able to switch backto Walmart Family T-Mobile, if needed. I've had the phone for 1 week. I haven't used the fingerprintreader or facial recognition. I can tell you the phone works GREAT! Battery life is EXCEPTIONAL and I am VeryHappy with my purchase. For $325, I feel it is a very good deal. I highly recommend it.
I absolutely LOVE this phone! The battery life is amazing, the screen is large, it's pretty lightweight, and it has better specs than the iPhone 11 for 1/3 of the price! They must have done some really great updates since all of the negative fingerprint scanner reviews because I haven't had any problems with the scanner. The only issue I have had was when the preinstalled plastic screen protector was still on the phone, the optical scanner wouldn't work if there were too many fingerprints or smudges on the screen but once I took that off, it works every time. I have zero complaints about this phone so far. Mine was shipped from Woot, got here in about 10 days, and has great service on T-Mobile. 10/10 would recommend.
I LOVE, LOVE this phone. Battery life is very good. Device features are great. I use this device a lot for work and I just love it. It has not disappointed me. I bought one before and a month after, it fell at my gate face down on some stones and broke (that hurts) no doubt I had to get another one.
This is a great phone for the price in overall. There are a few things here and there that may put off some people but for me personally I don’t see that its that bad of a quality for the price. The first thing mentioning would be the plastic back. (I like it in my opinion) but I can see how people may not like it. The other thing that may or may not be a hit would be the button layout. In my opinion having all the buttons on the same side is kind of a pain but its doable. Another thing I find kind of weird in my personal case is that when I pick up my phone from my pocket, I always seem to pick it up touching the camera unintentionally. The second weird thing that caught my attention is with the speaker, that the volumes are kind of off because you can’t practically hear anything from below half volume and its extremely loud at max. My final nitpick would be the camera, the quality is not the best but definitely not the worst. If you don’t mind these short comings then this is the phone for you.
I wanted to update my phone from my Galaxy s9+ I got this phone because I did not want to spend too much money and this Galaxy A70 fit most of my requirements. I love the fact it has a large screen, and that it is FLAT. I did not want a phone with the rounded edges on the flagship phones. The phone has a headphone jack. This phone does everything I need at a reasonable pace. It is a little bit slower than my Galaxy s9+ but with a price < $400 I can't complain.
