The Samsung Galaxy A70 is in my opinion a flagship but with a mid-range price. The picture quality is unbelievably awesome while watching movies.It has a bright display that you can see without any problems while outside on a bright sunny day! The fingerprint scanner is not all that fast but the facial recognition is pretty fast. It's has a really great camera that you'd expect in the higher end phones. I've put the phone through some really demanding games and it handles that without any lag it's fast and very responsive.The battery is big and long lasting. I could probably watch 10 movies back to back and still have some battery left. When it comes to charging it's fast real fast. The only thing I didn't like about the phone is the built-in apps that I don't use and can't uninstall. If it weren't because of that I'd definitely have given the phone 5 stars. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone that's looking for a great phone but can't afford those sky high prices.
This phone has proven to me that cheap phones are nearly as good as the flagships. The only feature I miss is waterproofing. But seriously this phone has everything. The underscreen fingerprint reader can be finicky at times, but still works most of the time. Never going back to flagships, especially since they eclipsed $1000. And yes, it works perfectly in the US. I was worried it wouldn't, since it says international, but it works great, I'm on T-mobile also, so mileage may vary for Verizon or sprint users. Also, 128gb internal on a phone that's $300??? I'm just so impressed.Pros:-Strong enough to play any game I've thrown at it, (*cough* dolphin works fairly well too, astonishingly, all emulation below that power wise works flawlessly)-Amoled screen, in a freaking budget phone-128gb internal with expandable storage!-Works in the US on GSM-Wide angle lens, that's fairly good.-Pretty good speakers-Underscreen Fingerprint reader-Near bezelless display, (the tear drop camera doesn't bother me, and I forget it's there.)-INCREDIBLE BATTERY LIFE. I seriously cant kill this thing in a day of heavy use. Playing games all day while recovering after getting my wisdom teeth removed was the lowest it's gotten, to around 8%. But then...-Suuuuper fast charging! I plug it in, and within half an hour I could use it for another day.-Platic back that doesnt look plastic, so if something does come up with the battery like my old flagship, I can just easily remove the back and replace it, it doesnt pop off, you still need the heat and stuff, but it wont shatter like glass when you try to remove it.-Headphone JackCons:-Camera is so-so. It's great in outdoors pictures. But definitely shows its midrange price if you dont have the flash on. You also can't take the highest resolution settings and have the flash on, it at most can be auto.-Fingerprint reader doesnt always work. I'd say 1/10th of the time it doesnt read on the first try. And 1/30th of the time I just have to type in my passcode. I do have a glass screen protector on (registered thumb after putting it on though), so maybe that's the problem.If you're reading reviews and considering a phone, this is the one to get. Price is fantastic. Battery is astounding. Screen is vivid and bright. Can play fairly intensive games at max settings. AND IS $300 DOLLARS. This is the phone to buy!
Well this phone works perfectly well at 4G LTE speeds on FreedomPop which uses AT&T's towers. This version of the A70 has the most cell frequencies of any other version of the A70. I can't imagine this phone not working on ANY GSM carrier in the USA. The battery life is just amazing because it not using top tier CPU and GPU's of the Note 10 and S10 yet the performance is fine. I'm guessing this phone could easily Standby for at least 4 days on a single charge as Samsung states based on what I've noticed. On screen Fingerprint reader works fine but you have to hold it on there a bit longer is all. Face detection unlock is quick as well. The 6.7" screen is just huge, bright and responsive. The single speaker is definitely a budget speaker but it's loud enough though a bit tinny sounding. Phone has NFC but can't use Samsung Pay on it which makes no sense. There is no wireless charging. The good things of the A70 far outweighs the bad on this phone including the price. It's so good for the price and that's why it's conspicuously not listed on Samsung's USA website yet the lower A series models are.
This phone is the truth. There is a reason why Samsung will not officially release this phone in the United States. Nobody would pay for their flagships.Screen is great.....Dual sim.....plus Micros SD slot. Plus headphone jack.....25w USB type C fast charging - battery life is excellent.I am still learning the features such as Bixby and Samsung One UI....but so far so good.I am on AT&T in the DFW....excellent coverage...If you are like me and have financial goals.....dont want to pay $1,000 for a phone, this is your logical choice.Only 2 minor things.....fingerprint sensor is a little slow and no wireless charge. But I am very satisfied with my purchase at this price point.
Awesome phone for a Awesome Price! If you can afford the $350 you will be very pleased with this phone! The pictures are awesome and great video too. You won't be disappointed.
