God bless Samsung, they put their not so wealthy consumers in thought. This phone is everything...

I want to change my S9+ because I am so tired of this useless curved screen ! And I want a bigger screen and battery.

DroidBoye, 20 May 2019This phone is not bad but I would say that this Samsung A-series... moreWell I traded my s8+ for A70 and i really don't regret it .. i had a chance to buy a note 8 used at the same price or may be s9 but I have A70 a chance .. and I would say it's a real upgrade in terms of screen size.. speed... water drop notch and fast charging... u don't have to worry about the charging/ battery again while holding this mighty piece of tech in your hand ... almost all new features of S10 series are here .. ofcourse not same quality/level but still not bad for the price ... camera can be little better which will be better in terms of camera processing with the new update like IN A50 .. over all a best budget phone to get .. even have Bixby routine .. new Live focus editing options ... under screen fonger print scanner.. which takes a lil time to adjust once u get used to it .. it takes split seconds to recognise your fonger print.. and most importantly 6.7" inch screen is really amazing for multimedia ... all S10 series other than 5G.. are smaller than this ... almost same size of note 8 but huge improvement over the screen and because of its plastic back .. u don't feel that u are holding 4500 MaH battery in this amazing phone.. really light for its size and battery

This phone is not bad but I would say that this Samsung A-series phone were pitched on a price-point coinciding with old flagships. I wonder if how would is stack-up with the likes of Galaxy Note 8 (slightly lower price), Galaxy S8+ or even the LG V30+ (both were significantly lower price around 300USD converted) their current online pricing were cheaper than the A70, at least here in Asia.

Nicolas F, 19 May 2019I never understood that "feels cheap in the hand" - and how woul... moreI know right! And I especially like light phones because they feel so much better for long session gaming and video watching. I've had a glass metal sandwich for 3 years and now im using the plastic A30 and man it feels so much better because of its lighter weight. Although my old s3 still feels the best because it's even lighter.

And why should it? Personally, I carry smartphone in a silicone case and don't care how does the chassis of the smartphone "feel in hand", and I don't understand, why should anybody care about that. It is JUST a smartphone!

Abid, 19 May 20196 gb instead of 8 gb.Emm, what do you mean? "instead of 8 Gb" where? Btw, 6 Gb of RAM is quite enough for a smartphone =)

I don't know who else puts headphones with midrange smartphones except Samsung (and Nokia, maybe); although I'd like them not to do that, because they are not so good anyways, but they are added to price =)

Jaro, 19 May 2019Nice price. In Poland this cost 466$ dollars or 420€ euros...Well, it's the price at our official distributors =) And there are some places that sell official Samsung phones right after launch, but with 20% lower prices =)

I bought this phone 2 weeks ago. Feels cheap in the hand, plastic and light. I don't like the tall aspect ratio. Speaker volume and quality just average. Battery life is good but nothing impressive. Photo quality is average.

Performance is amazing. One UI with SD675 is just butter smooth. AMOLED screen looks good but I wish it was brighter.

Nicolas F, 19 May 2019Yay, it should be interesting) A70 is one of the least expensive... more6 gb instead of 8 gb.

It's simply the phone of the year, considering the specs and the true life use, with the price, no phone comes close. Kudos to Samsung, I wish they could include an update that will could make the camera switch to wide angle while doing a video.

The strength of the screen was not indicated, who knows?
It really matters a lot since the screen is a wide amoled 6.7 inches
