Using the A04E is exhausting. Do not buy

I'm not sure which Samsung subsidiaries produced the A04E but they did a horrible job at it (excuse my language). Barely used the phone for 6 months but I've regretted it from the very first day I purchased it. Phone produced in 2022 came without NFC, came with a software update that needs to be updated every 3 weeks, claims it has Android 12 software but it drags when on heavy internet usage, and is just generally frustrating to use. 

Wish I can trade it in for a better phone.

Your phone has only around 4gb of ram, so it will be slow. also the amount of apps affects the speed of your device, if you want to trade in or get a discounted price on a new device via samsungs trade-in option. have a nice day.

Petition cache cleaer may help a little but the speed and spec will only deliver base line performance.

All apps should state system requirements needed. They don't unfortunately. They say RAM is not important but it is.

Purchases are generally made with the financial capacity of the buyer in mind. Apologies for being a broke ass who can't afford a better phone.

Now, fvck off

i honestly dont think he meant that in a rude way, whenever someone buys a budget phone they should know and realise it will be slow compared to flagship devices. its general knowledge in this day n age. If your wanting a fast phone but also on a budget look for phones with atleast 6gb of ram for example. Unless you get a device with decent ram then you'll have to live with having a slow phone, have a nice day.

Did a few minutes of research, for a similar price of the a04s, you can get an S10, with the only downside being lower battery life and no software support.
When buying on a low budget it is always a good idea to consider older flagship phones, as at the time they were built with a premium experience in mind, unlike cheap newer phones, which are not.
