you know what they say about blokes with a 6.7inch phone?

Got the a80 and it's a good phone so this won't be far off
Snapdragon 685 chip? I don't think so!
Not for me
Still s bit too dear for the specs you're getting, but (almost) everyone knows it's not all about specs. In 2020 this should be cheaper to compete effectively in crowded mid-range

Not true
A71 due on the 7th Feb
I opted to save some cash and went for the A50 over this. Despite less ram and smaller screen, it's cheaper, and its GPU benchmarking is actually quite a bit better than the a70 (39k vs 33k).

Also, there's a debate over which camera is better. I'd save your money. Also, £299 is really not far off some of the deals around for much better phones.
I bought one of these refurbed for £180. Came in pristine condition. The camera specs are good on paper, but in reality are incredibly disappointing. In low-light the pictures it takes are very blurry and low quality, even after switching to the 32mp cameras. (The phone camera app defaults to the 8mp cameras for some reason)

In well lit conditions the photos are ok bordering on good, but nothing amazing.

The standard (install Gcam and fix it) doesn't fix anything in this condition, as samsung have messed around with the camera APIs so camera apps other than the stock camera app can only access the 8mp camera.

I think the bad low-light performance is due to the small size of the cameras pixels, so not much light gets in.

Anyways, I was really sad because everything else about this phone is great!

So if you don't mind average cameras, this phone is great due to the beautiful screen and huuuuge battery. Also 25W charging is nuts! My phone came with the 25W USB c charger and I was blown away.

Anyways I went and got an s9 refurb for the same price and the cameras are much better, although I don't get the big battery

Now to return this beauty of a phone
I have the A70 and have been very impressed with it. The battery life is amazing. Camera is decent and it's a fast phone. Not talking benchmarks but actually using it. No issues at all with it really.
The camera is not decent by any stretch of the imagination. In low light it's awful, in good light it's ok.
width of phone is 76mm, thats the same width as most 6 inch phones

so all they have done is make it taller, pointless
Currys is price matching this if you would rather buy from them...

At what price? I think for a mid ranger you can do better at that price point
I've had this a few months, got mine from cex ee locked 200, I am very impressed with the cam and I have to take gig vids as I'm an events promoter. It also works with my map app for os maps. I am a convert although when cex get the a71 at 200 I'll be upgrading and trading this in.

Seeing more on the screen without scrolling is pointless? I think not!

so a wider phone can display more text in each line,
so less scrolling is needed.
plus photos appear larger

A 6.7" smartphone with a 16:9 or even 16:10 aspect ratio would be unwieldy. How else do you think they'll increase the screen size if not by making them taller? There's no reason to lock phones to the 16:9 ratio, like with TV's and most monitors.

the a70 has a 20:9 ratio so they have moved from 18:9 to 20:9 so have just stretched it.
my mi max 3 is about 8.6cm wide and is easy to read and type on looks like its 18:9 ratio also

And the Mi Max 2 used a 16:9 aspect ratio. I'm all for the taller aspect ratios.
