I'm planning to but this phone, or should go for A8+ or A50?
The #A9 #mobile absolutely sucks, pictures are totally blurred and even in warranty there is absolutely no support from #Samsung
In my opinion the Samsung Galaxy a9 is one of the best phones and it is cheap
Chezzyboy, 14 Aug 2019I have my samsung galaxy A9 for a year now no problems currently running android 9 with ONE UI... moreOh well, I will just say that even S6 Edge camera quality is a bit better than this. I just got that phone for cheap, and when I compare those two S6 has better quality, in my opinion. It is not a major difference, and A9 shoots decent pictures, but it just sucks that Samsung did not optimize A9 camera's, and probably never will.
I have my samsung galaxy A9 for a year now no problems currently running android 9 with ONE UI 1.1 the cameras arent what i expected though thought it would be better in my opinion but the s10 has good picture quality next to A9
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2019I need opinions. I will get a broken A9 (drown in water) from a friend which is still need to ... moreSo you would pay 250-300 for a phone, and still pay for the fixes? I would say that it's not worth it if that's the case. I got mine fully working and brand new for around 350Â€ on sale, so yeah...
I need opinions. I will get a broken A9 (drown in water) from a friend which is still need to go to service center for 250-300 EUR. Or is it better if i just pick a new A70 (6/128) ?
XLR8R, 07 Aug 2019Really? 2019 A series cut a lot of corners on the quality. The worst part is that they took... moreexactly..i guess samsungs low cost samsungs like A series are not made by samsung korea or vietnam anymore..its given to a chinese company for manufacturing to reduce cost..they should not compete with other chinese companies..now lots of complaints coming from new A series phones
PartTimePhoner, 07 Aug 2019Well A50 has exynos 9610 and A9 has SD660 which give around the same performance but newer chi... morea50 is more cheaper..But if you look now a days these A series lacks that major type of sensors ans that premium old finish..when u look through cpuz it shows all major sensors..but deep inside it wont have many..and support of samsung pay and all that not comes in every countries
XLR8R, 07 Aug 2019Galaxy A9's cameras are better than A50 and A70, especially in low light. In fact, A9 can take... moreWell A50 has exynos 9610 and A9 has SD660 which give around the same performance but newer chipsets are somehow optimised better for newer games.
A9 has a better but smaller screen and has a low ratio so a tie?
Battery life is a bit better on A50 but a9 has 18W instead of 15W, as if 3W makes a huge difference. 10 min difference at max.
A9 has a faster, A50 has a better positioned (imo) fps
They are really going for a tie but A50 is cheaper in my country so idk
XLR8R, 07 Aug 2019Really?
2019 A series cut a lot of corners on the quality. The worst part is that they took... more(Sorry I posted the other one before finishing accidentally)
Performance, design, camera, A9(20180=A50 and A7(2018)=A30(well this one might be wrong but only maybe)
Giving uniqueness away for a bigger screen. "A sould for a sould/ A small price to pay for salvation"
XLR8R, 07 Aug 2019Really?
2019 A series cut a lot of corners on the quality. The worst part is that they took... more1. I am with you here they really downgraded the quality and thats frustrating. But, like, We dont go zoom everything and we dont need to anyway. As much as I think its frustrating this can be overlooked (still a downgrade and I hate it)
2. I really dont get what that "glass back" love is about what does it even add to phone other than a new crackable glass and extra weight? I mean it feels premium but thats not that necessary is it?
3. Why does samsung need to be "that" unique tho? And also, how can they make it unique? Putting an irritating "Samsung" logo to the bottom chin? Bringing the dead home button back? Keeping the "What the hell man this aint 2017" %75 ratio? Using a not-so-loved punch-hole camera? Designing it to have a not-really-liked horizontal camera design? Putting the notch to a weird place? Using 2 notches? Using a wider notch? Using a rectangle camera design that makes the phone identical to A7(2018)?
PartTimePhoner, 28 Jul 2019A70 can do a x67 combo on A9(20180 what are you talking about even A50 is better than A9(2018)Really?
2019 A series cut a lot of corners on the quality. The worst part is that they took liberties with pixel binning so that the quality of the images is only what you can expect from a 12 MP image. It's not a downsized 24 MP/32 MP but rather a 12 MP with "super pixels" that supposedly help in night shots.
The build quality and materials of the 2019 A series is not really comparable to the 2018 counterparts either. OTOH the software experience in 2019 A series is definitely better and the SOCs used are quite good in comparison to the abysmal choices in the 2018 series.
The worst part about the 2019 A series is not any of this, it's that before you reach the A80 and A90 (soon to be released), all of these A series phones look like some generic Chinese build, and don't have "signature Samsung design touch" (no, glasstic holo-back paint doesn't cut it, everyone has a good gradient job these days).
Now, price discussion is one thing, Samsung phones were traditionally overpriced and that hurt them, but the design language is another. You can look at an Oppo or Realme and tell that this is an Oppo product. You can look at an Xperia and you know it's from Sony. And that was true for Samsung too till 2018, but in 2019 I really get confused whether it's really a Samsung in the hand of that user?
I have no doubt Samsung will release really good A series phones in 2020, maybe they will take some of the feedback and bring back the premium materials and proprietary design language....
And generally speaking, A8x and A9x of any generation are well comparable to the A5x and A7x of the next generation. A8 (2016) and A9 Pro (2016) held up very well against the A5/A7 (2017), the same is true for the C9 Pro which holds up well against A8/A8+ (2018) and now the A9 (2018) which holds up well against the A50/A70 (2019).
jei, 29 Jul 2019i am planning to buy a new phone but i dont know which of these are much better regarding in c... moreA50 - if you can get the 6GB RAM version, or else A9.
If you can't get the 6GB A50, go for A70.
For detailed discussion read my post immediately before this one (below).
Crocop, 04 Aug 2019Out of those you mentioned, I would say that your best bet is A70. A9 is also still good, I ca... moreGalaxy A9's cameras are better than A50 and A70, especially in low light. In fact, A9 can take actual 24 MP pics with little quality loss whereas on A50 and A70 you need to use the 12 MP pixel binning mode to get the best quality (and even then, doesn't exceed A9's quality).
As far as gaming goes, things work great on A9 but I imagine A50 and A70 will be good too. A80 is the best of all but honestly, the lack of headphone jack, NO expandable storage and high price make it a no-no for now.
My 2 cents is: If you want to get the A80, just get the A9 instead. If you feel A70 is good, then A50 offers all that the A70 offers and almost identical camera experience (selfie megapixels aside) at a lower price. So your real two options here are A50 and A9. But A50 does not have 6GB RAM option in many countries, so in that case you'll need to consider A70 instead.
