So sad this one is so expensive. I was expecting that this phone has 960fps slow mo and better stabilization on its camera.
Samsung's foray (with a new lineup) into the highly competitive mid range market is great. But Samsung needs to Concentrate on 3 Things across its Mid Range and TOP end needs to focus on:
1. Absolutely class-leading cameras, across all price ranges, is imperative for Samsung. And sensor development should create an advantage for Samsung for the majority of smartphones. Constantly evolving Computational Photography Algorithms. The new night mode on the Samsung S10 series is superb. This is the Roadmap that Samsung must take. Along with improved HDR for video, that should be aimed at beating the iPhone XS Max with the Filmic Pro for video and the P20 pro for stills.
2. Quality control is of utmost importance. I hope Samsung has checked the rotating camera on the A80, for longevity and quality control. And while they are at it, heads need to roll for the Galaxy Fold fiasco. Financial penalties and retrenchments seem to be in order.
3. Samsung is doing great with early adoption. But Samsung needs to create a 10-member team of advisors, new innovators and researchers who keep an eye on development on other smartphone and tech devices and platforms. Also, this team could advice on acquisitions (like the recent acquisition of Corephotronics), to ensure that Samsung's imaging quality is constantly ahead of the competition.
Obi, 06 Jun 2019Can i videocall and flip the camera but still see who I am talking to?can
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2019By hearing the differences in audio quality.But if you've only got one and not the other, how can you compare or even tell the difference
I like the design but xiaomi already released a similar model which is a lot cheaper then this device it also has 5g like this device
>Performing a test with an active adapter wouldn't make sense though, as each of those has a different DAC and any results we obtain won't be representative for the actual output of the phone.
This is getting lame guys, pretty soon we'll have no phones with head phone / line jacks (which btw you are culpalbe in championing even though most readers didn't seem to be interested) so you better start learning about DAC and working out ways to actually test the quality of Audio outputs (even digital ones) or basically you'll be reduct to just talking about "how it feels in your hand" (you're already on the way...)
Bwahahahaha!!! this phone was supposed to challenge the Oneplus 7 Pro? Even the Oneplus 7 Pro is a bad buy at the current prices regardless of that standout 90Hz screen.
A80 is DoA
Seems like everytime i open GSMA, samsung comes up with a new phone. How many phones are you going to release Samsung?!!!
So IMX 586 is high tier sony sensor? or is there better? some S8 use Imx 333 and S9 use imx 345 and those are better quality than a80. Confusing hierarchy,

Anonymous, 05 Jun 2019So disappointed the A80 camera doesn't match Zenfone 6.Did you even look at the camera samples?
awesome mobile just needed more screenmaybe 7.2 inch like mate 20x
and bigger battery size and better camera usage and popup rotating mechanism should have been a slider for better life time damn huawie would have done this better
Price is way to high. I bought an Oppo Reno 10x Zoom for Â€635.
