Is it worth selling my 2 month old Samsung A71 and buy the A72?

Hello lads, i recently turned 18 and me and my family decided to buy me a new phone 2 months ago which is the Samsung Galaxy A71. What i didn't know was that 2 weeks after my birthday, the A72 would get released. If i had known that the A72 was going to get released, i wouldn't have bought the A71, anyways. Now i am stuck and i don't know what to do. I bought the A71 for 306 euros and the A72 right now is 390 euros, is it worth selling my A71 and then buy the A72? Remember, my A71 is only 2 months and 1 day old so it's quite fresh, so, what do you guys say, should i sell my current A71 and then buy the A72? I honestly don't really care spending 90 euros more so we are alright about the money situation.

 

Ofc i know the advantages of the A72, the A72 is waterproof, 90hz display, 500mah battery more etc etc.

Thank you for reading!

Sounds like waste of money to be completely honest. If you are going to spend €90 on something, dont let that be half of AAA battery worth of capacity.

Lol gotcha gotcha, i will see what other people have to say then i will make up my mind. Ofc if people say "sell your current phone and buy the new one" i won't like sell my current phone tomorrow lol, i will wait like a couple of weeks, let the prices drop (if they drop) and then see what i will do but thanks for your opinion

Probably going to pay more than 90€ for a little more battery as it won't sell for retail prices. Not worth it.

Nope, i have a website here that gathers all electronic stores from Greece (and i'm from Greece yes) and it puts the lowest price at the top and the lowest one is 390 euros so far and i won't pay more cuz before i bought my A71, it said 306 and i paid for 306 so yeah but thanks for sharing your opinion!

Samsung A series phones get upgrades barely worth paying for especially if you have a previous model that's only two months old. So I wouldn't upgrade if I were you.

The issue is is that i sometimes have decision issues, like the thing that's tempting buying the A72 is the 500mah battery, the 90hz display cuz i have never had a 90hz display, the waterproof, not that i'm going to jump in the pool everyday or something, it's just an extra protection let's say it but ah well, if the price hasn't gone at least 350 by the end of may, i am not gonna buy it. Yea i know upgrading to A72 just for these features may not be wow or something but it's because it's also a new phone but anyways, thanks for sharing your opinion!

I can't understand the point of having a 90 Hz screen on a phone. It is just a needless perk for me. The only spec worth upgrading for is the waterproofing in my opinion but it depends on for how much your two month old phone will go for and how much you'll pay over it for the new one. As you say it's just an extra protection but can't say it is guaranteed to be safe if you drop your phone into a pool. It would be easier to RMA if something happened to it though. But I'd advise you not to fall for "the new phone" hype.

I mean 90hz will be a better smoothing experience idk. In general i am super careful with my phone, not with this one, and my previous ones as well. I'm not like those type of people that throw their phones on their table like it's nothing or something, i place my phone gently and as far as waterproofing goes, honestly, on my previous phone the A5 2017, that phone was waterproof and i've never properly thrown that phone into a pool or something, i really only used it in the shower just for the lolz, put the phone into a bucket of water and put it under running water etc etc and after 3.5 years, that phone is still working just fine but waterproofing is a plus if i was at the beach taking pics and all that so it's not really that important but you never know.

 

Yea i shouldn't fall for the new phone hype thingy, you're right but the tempting thing is also the 800 nits and the stereo speakers. As long as i don't think the A72 too much, i will be fine i guess
