Samsung Galaxy A80 review

by birtanpublished on November 6, 2020

Hey what's up guys will here for GSM marina recently phone makers have been asking the question why do you need cameras on both the front and the back of a phone if you can just have a flip camera do it all the latest to try and make this work it's a samsung galaxy a8 II LLC I was able to pull it off in our for review the Galaxy AAT is built of glass with a metal frame our model isn't phantom black and the curved back is shiny and mirror-like it isn't a small phone and I wouldn't call it a lightweight one either it's pretty hefty it is a bit

Slippery and there's no real edge on the rounded frame to grab onto the main attraction of the AAT is the motorized selfie slider instead of hiding a selfie cam within the body of the phone this one raises the main camera setup and then rotates it to face you the effect is really cool almost transformers s with its multiple moving parts it does bring some concerns about structural integrity though especially since if it breaks down you could be left without a useable camera at all though it is possible to force the slide are open by hand

It isn't recommended and the phone will yank the slider back in if he give it a chance oh no it is some really impressive engineering but needless to say with these moving pieces the Galaxy AAT isn't waterproof the end result of using this slider is that you get a large screen with no forehead and no not cut out it's quite a clean and satisfying look the displays a six point seven inch Super AMOLED with a 1080p resolution and a 20 by 9 aspect ratio at 393 PPI content looks great and you get the deep blacks only an AMOLED can produce colors aren't

The most accurate in the default vivid color mode though you can tweak them with sliders but switching to neutral mode gives you great accuracy in srgb overall brightness is standard for a nice OLED display 405 nits maximum in manual mode and up to 607 it's in auto mode in bright conditions and as an AMOLED you get an always-on display to keep track of time and notifications the screen is used for biometrics too there is an under display optical fingerprint scanner it isn't very fast but it gets the job done unfortunately there's no face on

Lock so this is your only option besides using a pen poor audio the Galaxy AAT has a single loudspeaker at the bottom it are in a very good rating in our loudness test and the quality is good too with a decent amount of bass and no distortion at high volume there is no audio jack for headphones on this model you'll have to plug into the USB C port we didn't get a dongle with a review unit though so we couldn't test headphone quality here you have 128 gigs of on-board storage on the Galaxy a 80 it should be plenty of space for most use cases but

It's still too bad that you can't expand it to microSD the phone is running Samsung's latest one UI over android 9 pi the same software that we saw on the company's flagships the interface is very clean and organized and everything flows quite smoothly as you'd expect this smooth performance is thanks in part to a new Snapdragon 730 chipset and eight gigs of ram in benchmarks it blows away the other mid-range competition in CPU and GPU tests if you're looking for the most bang for your buck though a flagship would give you even better performance

For as much as the AAT costs the phone is powered by a thirty seven hundred million power battery not bad but a bit on the small side for a phone with such a large screen when we ran our proprietary battery life tests we got an endurance rating of 80 hours a bit below average charging speed should be quite fast though with support for a USB power delivery at 25 watts unfortunately our review unit didn't come with a box so we weren't able to clog charging speed but samsung says it will be able to get from 0 to 50 percent in half an hour let's take a closer look at the Galaxy a 80s

Flipping triple camera setup there's a 48 megapixel main snapper with a quad bear filter an 8 megapixel wide-angle cam and a tof sensor for depth information photos from the main camp come out in 12 megapixels and in good light they look quite pleasant with good contrast and vibrant colors detail is adequate but not mind-blowing and there is some visible noise you have the option to put 48 megapixel photos but there isn't much of a point to it these are a bit noisier with not much increased detail 8 megapixel shots with the ultra wide cam Maru

But nothing special beyond the benefit of the water perspective they aren't terrible sharp and dynamic range is limited in low-light photos from the main cam are okay images are slightly soft and come out a bit on the darker side if you switch on the new night mode results are noticeably better with preservation of detail and highlights and shadows and more saturated colors there's a bit of extra detail to the ultra wide camera is quite poor in low-light which is hardly surprising it captures soft and noisy underexposed photos there's no night

Mode available for this camera now under the main camp selfies and a bit of disappointment one of the main benefits you'd imagine is that you get to use the autofocus for your selfie shots but for some reason the phone disables that and leaves you with arm's length fixed focus you don't even get to use a regular flash as far as quality goes it's okay with good detail and true-to-life skin tones by default you get a tighter crop shot of about 8 megapixels but you can go wider to get the full 12 for an even wider shot you can take an ultra wide-angle selfie we weren't happy with

A white balance though which kept shifting quite dramatically based on the lighting in portrait mode or live focus as Samsung calls it the tof sensor seems to really pull its weight subject separation is quite capable and the D focus background looks convincing selfie portraits are just as nice but like the other selfies they again suffer from not having autofocus you also have the option for live focus video which only works in 1080p and the edge detection isn't stellar it's a neat idea though regular video can be recorded at up to 4k at 30fps quality wise these are

Excellent with an abundance of fine detail why dynamic range vibrant colors in almost no noise too bad these aren't stabilized so they probably aren't the best option for walking around or for vlogging and selfie mode 1080p videos have always-on electronic stabilization though but there is some visible wobble with the ultra webcam you also have the option for super steady mode which further smoothes out the footage making it essentially shake free in its normal shooting mode the ultra wide camera is 1080p footage is decent but it isn't the sharpest and colors are a bit washed out

Looking so that's the Samsung Galaxy 880 overall you get a nice bezel of sam'l egg with no not a good chipset a decent camera and that unique pop-up mechanism that can dazzle your friends however as a mid-range er there's a lot more to be desired here battery life is unimpressive you don't get expandable storage and then there's a worry about the sturdiness of the slider plus not allowing the camera to use the autofocus in selfie mode that's pretty disappointing at around 650 euros the galaxy a8 II doesn't offer the same

Amount of value that you get from other mid rangers or even some flagships the most unique feature the flip cam has been done better elsewhere on the central and 6 so unless the price goes down here is tough to recommend this one thanks for watching guys and see you next time
