If you really want wireless charging, use this with a regular case and you're good to go.
Nillkin has good acessories.

You can use Samsung Pay on that phone.

TBH That A71 only needs OIS on the Camera and Wireless charging to be S Series phone. But I think the camera is really good if you explore it well.
Thanks, but the resources I found still say it does not have NFC. Do you own one and tested it?

As per the screenshot I posted above.
Own one, tested, Google pay and Samsung pay working perfect.

Go to the Canadian Samsung product page and use it as your resource. Grinning Face With Smiling EyesSmiling Face With Open Mouth And Tightly-closed Eyes

Due to the 30 day return we should be entitled to this?
Re-signed up for the $45 plan and A71 a week ago.

Called in for the $50 credit for existing customers and was getting push back. Not sure why - we could just return it and re-buy. Got disconnected and haven't called back yet.

Yeah, their phone's are dated and top out at mid-range level. They need to bring in some flagship level phones. I don't even mind putting down a down payment like an extra $100-200 just so I can get a better phone. It's the only thing holding me back from going with them.

If one is considering the Pixel 4A, the A71 matches most specs and beats some.

Same CPU, bigger screen, same build, has microsd expansion...

The A71 is almost on par with S20 FE, except for slower CPU, no water resistance, no wireless charging, no 3x optical but has 64MP main shooter which can be cropped to get same effect, no 5g (which doesn't matter at this point), but has slightly bigger screen and costs much less.

I had a look at the camera based on several youtube videos and the picture quality is slightly inferior. For me most of the other features aren't revelent. I just need a good camera on a phone and I'll be satisfied. It's too bad they don't carry an s10, huawei 30 pro or p40 models at zoomer. Not sure if you can pick up the p30 non-pro version for $45 a month but even that phone is kind of meh... I'll see what they offer later on in terms of phone selection and think of switching.

Am I the only one who WANTS the smaller screen? These things are getting ridiculously sized now, they're 160+ cm in length. Anything above $250 is generally fast unless you're doing something demanding on it which most people aren't so you'd think we'd then be focusing on the ergonomics of the phone but Samsung, Motorola, and LG all push these tablet sized phones.

I would recommend zoomer or fido for a more reliable signal and coverage.

decided to go with Fido from TMS for the S20 FE and got 300K points of PCO, which I could turn into $450 if I could find something to buy at SDM now

Thank you op. I got the A51 for free and $150 bill credit and the referral credit on top of that. This is by far the best deal one can get. Bye bye Koodo...

This beats the crap retention offer that Koodo offered me by trying to switch me on to their in market $45/month plan with tab med and even a $10/month credit for 24 months still makes the zoomer deal better by over $300.

You are right about the lack of flagship phones available from Zoomer. I've been with them for over four years and it's always been that way. It will probably never change. It's unlikely that Rogers would ever allow Zoomer access to flagship phones. That and a few features (like roam like home) are how Rogers can differentiate themselves and keep some (but not all) of their customers from leaving their high price (read high profit) plans. Just my 2 cents worth
