In terms of pricing their devices in India, Samsung is following HTC and Sony's path and we all know what happened to them.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2019well, actually it's not just India, the A80 was also launched in Indonesia on July 17, 2019.... moreReally? I thought they only said mostly about India, then USA, then Europe(major countries) and that's it!
Peace & Love, 19 Jul 2019No hate but why only India? Focus on other countries too(like the developing European countries)!well, actually it's not just India,
the A80 was also launched in Indonesia on July 17, 2019.
(and other South East Asia countries too),
but it seems the people in GSMArena didn't give a damn about phone market in Indonesian or SEA countries in general, they only care about USA, Europe, and India...
Samsung added ToF camera in the inferior A series. They did not add the ToF camera in the S10 and S10e models. This is bullshit, Samsung..!!!!
Except rotating camera.. nothing is there for demanding such a price..bullshiittt phone. Gonna flop...
cost of the phone - 28k. Cost for the brand name - 28k
Now you know why Sammy overprices products?
I have two special words for this phone...
Who's gonna spend 50k for a snapdragon 730 phone? Samsung Fanboys of course. I'd be surprised if they even make it to 1k total sales for this A80.
minku, 19 Jul 2019No. it is overpriced, No OIS, no sd855, better go for oneplus 7 worth 32k rs.No i love samsung. I don't prefer Chinese brands
YH, 19 Jul 2019Since the LCD on Zenfone also support HDR10 and DCI P3 color gamut in my opinion the screen on... moreI know the difference since I've compared it side by side between Zenfone6 and A80, no matter what, amoled color is oversaturated which may tends to attract consumer because of its color seems popped up, and nowadays some consumers just buying amoled instead lcd without thinking. Me, personally, I dont care whether its amoled or lcd as long as I can say the color is good for my eyes.
No hate but why only India? Focus on other countries too(like the developing European countries)!
As I understand it, in this price range we can get S9/Note 9. So why buy A80?
Come on Samsung, we know the A8x and A9x are your experimental phones where you try out new ideas, but you can at least reward those buyers by giving 3 OS updates then?
We all know next year's A60/A70 is going to do the same stuff at a lower price.
Aalu Paratha, 19 Jul 2019The phone is extremely overpriced.... Samsung should have priced it at some ₹15K low... moreEven if it priced INR 15K lower ...
ASUS 6z (= ZenFone 6) still a much better choice, because
- S855 flagship SoC,
- near Sock Android OS w/ nice features,
- better cams (incl. better video and selfie functions),
- RAW file support,
- much bigger battery (5000mAh),
- microSD card slot (dedicated !!!)
- 3.5mm jack,
- color notification light,
- stereo speakers with Smart Amp,
- SmartKey extra button,
- better community support (GCam, Lineage OS support already started),
and so on, lots of things ...
Have all the licences - support for all top Bth-Codecs f.e.
So, that is possible the no elsewhere to find package.
Higher versions already Sold Out in India.
so popular, that very hard to get it accross Europe.

Just in case you don't know the advantages of display that support HDR content just look at this comparison between Xperia XZ Premium and OnePlus 2.
spend a little more, then you got samsung S10e which is far more superior than A80 plus with microSD card slot, 3.5mm jack and flagship level SoC.. Or you can opt to Asus flagship Zenfone6 which has more features (except still lcd screen) but more cheaper
