Having a 4500mah battery I expected big things from this phone. Its got the biggest battery I have ever had on a phone but sadly it doesn't perform like it.
My previous phone was an iPhone XR and before that a Huawei P20 pro, both had similar battery life and I simply could not kill them batteries in one day, This phone I could.
With my previous phones with my usage I would come home from work with around 70% battery life, on the A71 its around 45% by the time I got to bed its more or less flat. Its certainly not a phone for an overnight stay somewhere without a charger, the pervious two phones are.
I only got my phone last week and even today I haven't got most of my apps installed, I am still running only the basic apps such as Gmail, facebook etc. I removed whatever bit of bloat was on the phone when I first got it and this hasn't made any difference.
Anyone else have a similar experience? Sure I could turn things off etc but I didn't need to on previous phones.
