Recently joined TMo and there was some minor confusion with the rep who was working with me... I originally requested the A51 5G, but the rep wrote the order for the A71 5G. Not a critical mistake, so I took it. There's certainly a lot of bloat from Google, Samsung, and a little from TMo, but they're easy to push to the side and out of the way. What I particularly wanted was the 5G connectivity, and while it's still low-band at my home, I did get to experience mid-band at a doctor's appointment, where the phone clocked an impressive 465 Mbps down and 90 Mbps up.
It's a good sized phone and fits well in my (large) hand. The settings are fairly straightforward, and the camera - which I haven't fully explored because I have high-end digital cameras - is certainly versatile and produces good results for everyday shots. I'm using this as a replacement for VoIP service and internet service from my cable company, and the A71 5G shines in both regards. Calls are clear, and whether I use the wireless hotspot or the USB tether, I'm getting steady internet service to my computers.
This is a very good mid-price phone and will do the job for just about anyone who purchases it. I usually keep my phones for at least 3 years, and I expect nothing less from the A71.
