Quite the limited regional carrier with a small native coverage area.

Really nice budget phone. 2GB RAM just does not cut it with Android O, P nowadays. No multiple tabs without lag. 3GB/32 with expandable memory is the minimum to have a phone nowadays keep up.

So nice and refreshing to see the Samsung mid-ranger series work itself into the US market. Hopefull the M series makes its entrance as well. My A20 is the best backup phone I have by far. No complaints.

First time I have seen it migrate like that. I guess you can understand the confusion. Thank You

No sir. It was highly commending the US market for finally launching a mid-ranger series after years of the J and S series. Hopefully the M-series makes an introduction as well. Not all people want to break the bank with the S-Series or go with the entry level J-series which are performance challenged.

It had been a long time coming. Samsung has inundated the US market with the J series and the S series for years. It was either empty your wallet for the S series si you can impress your friends, or just have the bottom tier J series that once the CPU gets a little bit challenged, the phone freezes causing you to have to restart the phone I have the lower end unlocked A20 and it's the best backup phone ...

Do not ever call the customer service number for the manufacturer. I'll leave it at that.

Very Under-rated processor manufacturer. Main concentration being Snapdragon and Exynos due to their main proliferation in the North American Market with Samsung, Motorola, LG mainly.

The law does include limited exceptions for immediate risk of death, organized crime, conspiracies threatening national security, and threats to public safety or health. Still a political powder-keg. People adore frivolous law-suits and litigation.

I had a BLU Pure XL in the past. Phenomenal screen. BLU is absolutely abysmal with OTA updates. Once the phone is out for the first 6 months, it is the usual security patches, etc., then everything just stops.

As Nokia went to HMD. Before Alcatel and Nokia migrated, they actually produced much better products.

Thanks for the update. So Alcatel went the way of Nokia. Alcatel to TCL and Nokia to HMD. Shame.....Nokia use to make the most durable phones on the market par none.

Not too shabby for $130. Hopefully the SoC 450 can handle that huge screen.

If this phone prove to be anything like the Axon 7, don't bother. Stuttering frame rates.

Thank You. "Starts at $399" Hopefully there is not a can of worms involved in that statement.

I read that the SoC was supposed to be 710 and not 670 unless they are both the same.

Watch all the subscribers running back to all the Verizon stores complaining about connectivity issues. It's all about posterity and calling first dibs. Why don't they first work on any of the remaining issues with 4G before diving into 5G?????

Hopefully on the specs this is not going to be a T-Mobile only. It is missing a few bands for AT&T.

Very nice mid-range phone. Hopefully HMD can graduate to AMOLED displays one day.

Good to know. Hopefully they do move up to the higher end models then.

Being the hoidy toidy of the 4 carriers, I am surprised VZW did not go for a more higher-end model.

I stress again, would be smart for US carriers to sell the A and M series Samsung models. Better alternative that the S line which puts subscribers in 2 year phone contracts for 30+ dollars/month. The J series is for the really budget conscious. Understandable.

$10 extra/month. Anything for a revenue generator. Was 3G extra? Was 4G extra????

The standard retail price is $820

I would really like to see more A-Series and M-Series as well. At least people can get as close to a flagship without bankrupting the wallet. Snapdragons 675, 710, and 712 say for instance. Rather than being stuck with the J series with the lower midrange processors in the 400 series. Hopefully patience will payoff.

A-Series
Mar 26, 2019, 1:57 PM
in the Article: Samsung Grows A-Series with Four New Models forum

Will these models be available in the North American Market or just China and India that usually seems to be the case. Meaning just the J for Junk Series and the S for Super Expensive in the North American market. No M series as well for North America. Notice a trend? Either the Flagship or the Low-End phones for North America. No Mid-range selection at all.
