The only thing the A71 will definitely offer is better battery. But the Snapdragon should be reasonably good in the FE too in this regard.

you will get a flagship experience for the price you pay extra over the A71 .
5G is not as relevant in the current scenario, depends on where you are located

Things in favor of FE
IP Rating
Screen Refresh rate ( makes a lot of difference in the user experience, you wont believe until you use it)
Better chipset
Better screen
Storage Speed (UFS 3.1)
Better computational photography ( dont go with Megapixel of A71, FE has better sensor)
Wireless charging / reverse charging
Photo / Video is as good as S20+ (flagship grade)

Lastly FE can fetch you better resale / trade-in down the lane

I bought the S20FE a few weeks ago and started to notice I was getting a lot of hang ups. I assumed it was other callers dropping because of poor signal. Well it isn't. Its the virtual proximity sensor. On mine, it barely works. The phone stays active for at least several seconds when I put the phone to my ear. AND worse, if I move around, the screen will activate while the phone is at my ear. So its then easy to hit buttons, hang up, dial someone else, launch apps.... The camera and screen work well enough. But the fingerprint scanner is much worse than my S9, the gorilla glass is a step down from the S9 and this proximity sensor is just horrid. I traded in my S9 and I would gladly trade my s20FE back for my S9.

Hi, purchased S20 FE last week in India. The exynos version has massive battery issues. Standby drain is surprisingly high. I have been using Androids for over 8 years, so used all tips to save battery (power saving, lower screen refresh rate, low brightness, location and bluetooth off, scanning off etc) but does not seem to make much difference, as compared to my previous phone- Galaxy Note 9. Anyone else facing this issue?

hi there, need help:

1. 'S20 FE 5G' vs 'A71 5G'?
2. FE got the main camera 12MP only? How good it could be?

p.s. Current phone: S7 Edge

I've never heard any specific issues of in screen fingerprint scanners that doesn't work due to tempered glass screen protectors. I mean, even if there were some that blocked the in display fingerprint scanner, you can just look for those that work with the in display fingerprint scanners, no? These has been out of the market for quite some time now and I am sure there are loads of them out there that work just fine with in display fingerprint readers. My S10 5G has no issues whatsoever when I look for tempered glass screen protectors that claim they work with in display fingerprint readers. Heck, the not-so-popular Ultrasonic fingerprint reader on my phone works just fine with tempered glass screen protectors.
