" ...  Very nice expensive feeling phone for a fraction of the price of S10 plus or iPhone X plus.  ...  "
comment
" ...  After spending many bucks (about ten grands I estimate over the course of a decade) on Apples, I finally converted to Samsung and will probably not go back for a while (or never, but who knows the future). ... A great value.  ...  "
comment
" ...  At about $340, this phone is a definite bargain!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Overall it's an amazing phone at an even better price!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Overall I highly recommend this phone to any budget minded shoppers looking for a great phone at a reasonable price for a very high end mid-level device that performs like a top tier flagship.  ...  "
comment
" ...  At about 1/3 the price of an S10+ you have an arguably better phone.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Screen is large and at 50% brightness, side by side with a Note 10, also at 50% brightness, the A70 is more vivid. ... And that's also while fidgeting with it, in conjunction with testing it against the smaller screen sized Note 10 which is already at greater than 10 percent battery used in the same timeframe.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love the large screen (6.7 inches diagonally), the very vibrant AMOLED display which is amazing (I find Samsung's AMOLED the best as they make their own instead of relying on third party sources), the photos are superb and even goes to 1.7F aperture which renders beautiful stills (but has many more functions such as slow motion), and the overall design is perfect for handling with one hand even with its great size.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I love the screen and the speaker is very loud for my taste but no complaints on that!  ...  "
comment
" ...  I can see why Samsung is the exclusive display supplier for Apple's X line of phones (X, XR, XS, XS Max) Apple's marketing team calls it a "Liquid Retina Display" but the rest of us call it an FHD+ Super AMOLED display. ... It doesn't quite roll off the tongue like Apple's name, but the display is gorgeous.  ...  "
