wow that's disappointingly awful output (purplish!) for a phone with four camera lenses. I wonder if it's a defect of the review unit you have? did you try getting it replaced by Samsung with another unit?
Guess what, they uses a small 1/2.8" sensor on its primary camera.
Take a look
Well, other than the past Samsung Pixon series, i never knew Samsung for its camera quality, their camera (even on their flagship) are always bland, unimpressive with tiny sensor size, like iPhone.
I need that 1/1.22" Pixon M8800 comeback.
That purple tint-ish color kinda reminds me of Google Camera with HDR+, except that this is the hypertinted version of it.
DroidBoye, 04 Jan 2019Finally, Samsung has caught up with the midrange SoC (SD660) but what's with the price though?... moreWell, it's Samsung, you know?
Other than their flagship, their mid until low end are always overpriced and bad specced (for that price range).
Finally, Samsung has caught up with the midrange SoC (SD660) but what's with the price though? What year is it again? Lol.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2019WOW, another overpriced POS which is basically mediocre at everything. Battery, audio, even ca... moreEven at 300 eur, Poco F1 & Honor Play dominating that price segment lol...
Poco F1 = 300 eur
Honor Play = 265 eur
WOW, another overpriced POS which is basically mediocre at everything. Battery, audio, even camera. Good for 300 euro at most.
For that price u can buy vanilla Mate 20, a huge gap in everything that this A9 can offer.
What a disaster mid range phone from Samsung.
I guessed correctly. I wanted to read this review and read the same as I thought. This phone is overpriced even in the Samsung line-up. And the number 9, in the name of this phone, doesn’t affect positively in features, because this one lost one, important at this price point, and is WATERPROOFING. The A8’s ( the normal ones, 2018) actually have IP68, like it supposed to have. I mean, one of the important things that separates the Samsung midrange between the others, was the IP rating. I didn’t expect it to be in the A7, 7
I'd never thought I would see such horrible quality photos from a camera phone in 2018, specially coming from Samsung, and at this price range…
You can do better than this, Samsung, what happen?
Whats the point if xiaomi mi a2 lite shoots better. But its not just about this line, it was never great. Just a few brands can deliver quality in entry level and mid range.
It's better to settle for a phone with a great single or dual camera setup rather than going for 3-4 pathetic ones.
IMO, the A9 (2018) is a major fail, mostly because it is primarily marketed for it's cameras & it totally fails to deliver on that particular front.
See... if there is no chinese companies who make affordable smartphones with great quality, specs and features most of us will stuck with this kind of garbage.
Hoffmann, 03 Jan 2019Year 2012 has just called, it wants its Galaxy S3 camera quality back.Even S3 is better lol
