Our Samsung Galaxy A80 Review

The Samsung A80 is one of the latest releases that is something of a rival — or at least a mid-range alternative — to the flagship S10 and other S Series models. The pop-up rotating camera is obviously the headline feature of the A80, but this model certainly delivers in other areas.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Display

Thanks to the pop-up camera feature, the phone is virtually free of bezels and there is no notch obscuring the 6.7 inch HD+ AMOLED screen. The striking contrast, colours, and brightness through the AMOLED screen, and users can easily adjust the RGB settings to their own preferences.

Although the A80’s 1080p resolution is a step below a QHD+ resolution, it still shows up very well.

If you’re not a fan of the large phone screen, then you can easily activate one-handed mode.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Camera

It goes without saying that the rotating camera is the standout feature of the A80, as Samsung certainly took something of a risk with this innovative design. The main idea behind the gimmick is that users can enjoy the same shooting quality, whether shooting from the front or rear of the phone.

There’s a triple camera lens arrangement consists of a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 123° viewing angle (the same viewing angle as the human eye), and a 3D depth sensing camera. 

Samsung Galaxy A80: Design

It’s a fairly sizeable phone weighing in at 220g and it has a thickness of 9.3mm, which is most likely owed to the pop-up camera feature.

Unusually, this is one of the very few Samsung models that does not come with a headphone jack nor a micro SD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Performance

The Snapdragon 730 chipset, along with the massive 8GB of RAM and 128GB flash storage, works pretty well to power the A80’s CPU.

Battery wise, a sizeable 3,700mAh cell runs well for an entire day and it can be charged in a jiff using the 25W Super Fast Charging technology via the USB-C port.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Features

The depth camera lens is equipped with Live Focus, which is essentially Samsung’s take on a bokeh effect. This feature blurs background elements in photos and videos, so it caters to a demographic who spend time cultivating their social media presence.

The Quick Measure app makes use of the depth sensing camera to measure 3D objects (e.g. furniture), distances, lengths, and depths.

Samsung’s Multi Window feature is also advertised with new models like the A80, and this allows users to view different apps simultaneously so you can do things like text someone without clicking off a YouTube video.

How much is the Samsung Galaxy A80?

The upfront cost is £579, which is considerably less than the S10 but it is on the slightly pricey side for a phone spanning from a mid-range series.

However, there are plenty of affordable plans that cost as little as £19 per month (network dependent), and these plans include 1GB data and unlimited minutes and texts. Of course, you can easily adjust the plan to suit your needs.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Our Verdict

If you’re looking for a phone like the S10 but you’re put off by the price tag, then the A80 might be a good alternative. The triple camera arrangement certainly delivers some crisp photos and videos, and a sizeable RAM and decent chipset keeps it running fairly smoothly
