Samsung in addition to One UI is the BOSS

I'm a Fan of big screen and battery,

got update already, Android May 1st security patch, on display finger print improvement e.t.c

One of the features i like is the SAMSUNG PASS

Battery life is looking impressive, just happy it is not hybrid SIM port,u can use ur 2 SIM and Memory card at the same time.

This is the Best custom Rom I've ever used in any device, others dey learn work

Dark mode is very nice, and all Samsung utility apps also work with it

NFC is a plus, my bluetooth speakers was off, it has NFC too, just touch the A70 to the spot of the speaker NFC and the speaker powered on and paired with the phone.

There is also a Game Launcher, where all your downloaded games are assembled just like a folder, u can also download gams right from the folder too

Instagram will surely make u enjoy the screen quality of the display

There is also the full screen gesture

The outer speaker is loud and sounds well.

Will be dropping a more comprehensive report on the performance of the device

Galaxy A Series is is a big win

You can't power off the phone from lock screen, it will request for your fingerprint or password before it powers off

I really like this, as this was one of the features I've been waiting to have in a device

You can take selfie without pressing the shooter button

All u have to do is raise your hand, let it be at same level with you head, once the camera notice your hand it will shot the selfie pics all by itself without you pressing anything, I've tried it and it is working perfectly

So many miss information about Samsung.

But my advice to to the brigade of (Samsung have poor battery) is dat they should stop buying Samsung used phone from UK or US or local used and be expecting a brand new device performance. U don't know the nature of the abuse the device had went through in the hands of the previous owners.




what people don't understand, midrange devices like this and others can do more SOT than a flagship device

S8 is flagship head to head with other flagship in his time the battery was as good like others if not better

Flagship of any brand don't do as good on battery like the brand top midrange because of screen quality and lesser Mah

They where simply comparing flagship battery life to a top midrange devices, anyone who is good with phones will know the difference, let us not deceive ourselves

So I will say it is false and not true

S10+ was just a game changer, came with lots of battery power

The earpiece image was taking by the device

There is a Game launcher which takes care and house games u download and installed, u can also download games right from the game launcher without going to play store or galaxy store


I have to personally install most of the Samsung essentials apps, a lot of them don't come preinstalled, i saw some preinstall apps which one can also uninstall

My advice get one Samsung One UI it add so much love

NB many of the Samsung's apps are aust have, I've ditch some Google own apps for Samsung's app of same functions
The one UI is not heavy , and comes with better battery optimisation

This will be a continuous thread, when I discovered any features I will keep sharing them here, that was why I had to create this thread, this is my first time using Samsung as myain device, others where just one or two time touch and go

Truth is with the new Samsung Rom call One UI I promise it it is really an upgrade.

Lets use the Galaxy S8 plus as a case study, what was Huawei top flagship as at when S8 plus was Samsung top flagship

You will see that there is no much difference, my point is one should not use a top midrange which are always battery king go heah to head with a Top flagship device, difference dey bros

But this days top flagship are stepping up, like the Huawei P30 Samsung galaxy S10 plus, there is a big upgrade on optimisation and battery performance on latest flagship this days

CLASSES OF DEVICE

Android

Entry Level device

Low Midrange device

Midrange device

Top Midrange device

Low Flagship device (flagship killer)

Flagship device

Flagship plus device




Iphone

Low Flagship

Flagship

Flagship plus

iPhone low flagship are not flagship killers




When you want to put a device head to head, pick his mate (SOC) not price

Some top midrange are expensive than some bran flagship, to be on a level playing field use SOC not price

There is also difference between Top midrange and Low flagship, low flagship are flagship killer, there always have same SOC as a flagship device
