Samsung Galaxy A71 Reviews
Does all it says
This is all that we need, and it works really well.No use wasting money getting the absolute latest model, for only to make/ take calls; do texting; browse Internet; read emails; take ad-hoc photos; and play some simple app games.Dave

Product exactly as described. Thank you very much.Martin
Screen flickered, went white then the phone died within 2 weeks. Only Branded refused to refund.
Very similar to the experience of a previous Amazon reviewer, this phone was faulty and no longer switched on within 2 weeks of use. Clearly a manufacturing issue, perhaps a defective batch. The seller Only Branded refused to refund.
I bought this phone for £322 from Only Branded via Amazon on 10th July 2021, started using the phone on 17th July 2021, initially with no major problems, I had noted that the battery drained very quickly which was unusual. I have previously had a Samsung A21s phone and the battery life is consistently good with that phone so I was surprised at this relatively poor battery from the A71.
On Thursday 29th July 2021 (after only 12 days of use) the screen flickered, went white and then the phone died. It was fully charged at the time. I was unable to switch the phone on, unable to reset it, it was completely dead. There was absolutely no damage to the phone, It had never been dropped and had not been exposed to water or other elements while in my possession. I returned the item to the seller Only Branded using the return label supplied and their reply was a simple refusal to even partially refund my money. I have never experienced such appalling customer service from a company, having been sold a defective item.
The A71 is likely to be an excellent mid-range phone but be very careful where you purchase the phone. Avoid the seller Only Branded at all costs as you will not get your money back if they sell you a faulty product.
I liked the phone when I bought first time. Then bought again for gift to someone. Not at same standard as first purchased. Not included a case and price gone up immediately when you click purchase again on amazonaccount. Not happy.Vlado Dumov
Battery doesn't last at all
I expected much more for this phone. The battery is going really fast even without using the phone. Also sometimes gets overheat and I have to turn it off for a while. I don't use it that much and the quality its rubbish. Also the camera take foggy pictures.Saps
Good mid range mobile
Bought this (first time I have actually bought a sim free phone) to replace an ailing galaxy A5. Now I have got it set up to my liking I am very pleased with it, especially the superb camera which does so much more than the A5. the only issue for a limited techie person like me was the initial set up. I did not want to be taken over by Google as the factory inbuilt process wanted me to do, so resorted to downloading the Samsung manual (all145 pages of it!) off the official Samsung website. Once I had done this and transferred all my old data from the A5 things were OK. Note that according to online info data transfer seems quicker and less likely to go wrong with a USB cable transfer than via Bluetooth so that is what I did.Maxsoundcaraudio
Easy phone to use
Needed a cheap phone and this does the job fine.Basil Fawlty.
A top notch phone for the money. 6gb Ram, 128gb of memory and a decent build for a mid priced Samsung. Make sure you get the UK version if you're in the UK as you may have problems with automatic updates, I've heard.
This is 100% genuine UK and works like a dream.
Flickering Screen & Dead within a Month
Purchased this phone at the end of May and started using it at the start of June 2021.
As of 27th June 2021 the screen is now dead.
I have not once mis-handled it (safe in pocket and inside a case, never dropped, etc.).
The only thing that might have caused this problem is it was in my pocket during a ~1 minute downpour that made my trousers damp. Phone was removed and wiped dry minutes after. Seemly, nothing more than a bit of surface water when wiped clean.
If a phone dies after being in a damp pocket for at most a few minutes, then it is clearly very poorly made.
Previous phones of mine have been through similar normal use in this regard and have lasted me upwards of 3 years.
Very, very disappointing.
Some use troubles, but maybe operators errors.Good battery life.Ian B.
