Phone deals almost always generate a lot of chatter. Why not this one? Seems like a steal at that price.

Because the S20 FE is $100 more, but has a faster CPU, Snapdragon 865 versus this phone, 765. Has faster memory access.

A71 isn't rated for water proofness, but the S20 FE is.

60hz screen while the FE has 120hz.

This doesn't have wireless charging, but the FE does.

They both have 5G, but the S20 FE has Sub-6 support allowing better coverage by being able to use 6G networks (not at 6G speeds).

Either way you look at it... you sacrifice a lot for not wanting to pony up $100 more.

For less money, the Oneplus 8 deal is better overall.

Does the FE do 120Hz at it's highest resolution or do you have to dial back the resolution to get 120Hz?

According to the spec pages at Samsung.com, both the A71 5G and the S20 FE 5G have Sub-6. So that is not a valid ding against the A71.

Wireless charging...that may or may not be important to the user. Most people plug in.

I have the A71, and the performance difference between a SD765 and SD865? I don't game on it, and everything else looks absolutely beautiful (better than my iPhone 11 Pro Max) and is super fast.

Moreover, the A71 5G is unlocked. Where is the S20 FE 5G Unlocked (US Version) for $475?

No expandable storage is a deal breaker for most people. If you can live with 128G forever, then I might agree the Oneplus 8 has more features and better specs.

It's not hard to find. It's a huge thread here on SD.. I mean its a Prime Day deal...lol https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08FYV84JT

In any case, you can't use a question as a basis for a decision. Bad fallacious argument there. So stop presenting 120hz as, "do you have to dial back the resolution" to generate doubt. It doesn't. They both have the same resolution. Its a better screen to use, sorry.

Looks like specds have indeed matured and both offer mmWave as well, so thanks for pointing that out. (Though suspiciously you research that spec, but can't tell if 120hz is generated through lower resolution)

Your definition of "most" is subjective. https://www.globenewswire.com/new...eriod.html
If people want to be cheap and not pretend it exists, thats their prerogative, but it is super convenient, and doesn't wear down your charge port. You win no points trying to convince people wireless charging isn't a good feature.

As for speed. That's great you find the A71 speedy. It relatively is. The S20 FE though is still faster in every metric...usually by a lot.. Just because your car goes 0-60 in 5 seconds doesnt mean you can honestly pretend 0-60 in 4 isn't a big difference.

I mean even the ram is going from 4 series to stepping up to 5 series chips in the FE.

Again... all this for a measly $100 and change.

I never said the A71 sucks, merely the S20 FE is better. You should garner the same amount of respects for facts and admit you got a shittier phone for cheaper, which is A-OK.

A 71 has a headphone jack and SD slot. I'd trade for that over the other pseudo premium features. These are real premium features. =)

edit: screen fingerprint sensor is a lie too. give me side button fingerprint scanner any day.

Jesus dude relax. Since you seem to be a know-it-all, it was a legitimate question about the refresh vs resolution, not some "fallacious argument". I have no idea, and if I really cared, I would have looked it up. It was not presented on the Samsung spec page.

As for the rest, your holier-than-thou attitude puts me off so I don't really care, to be honest.

The only problem with one plus phone is it will get heat. I have a one plus 3T and once I complete a phone call or whatsapp call or phone gets recharged, the phone gets heated. I don't get phone calls. But that is 3T. I am not sure about 8.. may be they have improvised. BUT I LOVE MY ONE PLUS. Still has no Performance problems

IF you are talking about the S20FE, it has an SD slot...

My sister in law had a note 9 for 2 years but it was cracked so she switched to the A71 and hated it. Said it crashed a lot, camera wasn't good. Ended up switching her to the S21.

Hello,

FYI. on the S20 FE SlickDeals thread, lots of people were bashing the S20 FE for all sorts of problems. Although, a few people said that a lot of those problems have been fixed with updates.

so,I feel like it is more complicated than just looking at the raw specifications.
