Samsung is undoubtedly the market leader in smartphones. They have beaten the big guys like Apple and Huawei with over 21% of the market. The company recently launched the Galaxy A80 Smartphone for India. It quickly became the talk of the town. Samsung brought in Diljit Dosanjh, a Punjabi singer to promote the new phone. In one of Samsung’s social media videos, Diljit Dosanjh, a Punjabi pop star was seen unboxing his phone.
Samsung Galaxy A80 will likely create more buzz in the Smartphone Market. While this happens, we’ll give you a detailed overview of this new offering from the Smartphone giant.
Design and display
Samsung is well-known for producing premium smartphones that look great. The Galaxy A80 continues this tradition. The Galaxy A80 was the first Samsung phone with the “Infinity Display”, and it is a stunning display that has no notch or punch hole cutout. It has very thin bezels on the sides and top. The Galaxy A80’s front is a pure display for its users.
The phone’s impressive display will not only amaze you but so will its size. It weighs in at 220g and measures 165.2×76.5×9.3mm. This phone is perfect for anyone who enjoys big gadgets. Gorilla Glass 3 covers the front and Gorilla Glass 6 protects the back. This is a bizarre strategy because if the phone falls, it tends to cause more damage to the front than to the back. The 6.7-inch FHD+ (2400×108080) Super AMOLED display will grab your attention from the very first time you use it. This phone’s display is stunning with vivid colors and a clear screen that will make video watching a pleasant experience. widevine L1 support is available on the Galaxy a80, which allows you to stream prime and Netflix videos in HD resolution.
Galaxy A80 Software and Performance
The Galaxy A80 was released globally a few months ago and is the first phone to feature Qualcomm’s new mid-range processor the Snapdragon 730G. However, Indian user K20 pro by Xiaomi had already brought the updated Snapdragon 730 chipset at an affordable price. This is why customers may choose to buy the Xiaomi phone over the Galaxy A80.
The apps are easy to use and you can enjoy your favorite games without any lag while surfing the web on the go. It has 8GB RAM which will be more than enough to run games such as PUBG or Asphalt 9 with stunning HD graphics. The phone can still get a little warm during the 30-minute gaming session. This is one of the downsides. The latest One UI based upon the Android pie runs the Galaxy A80. The AMOLED display’s black color is very noticeable so you must make sure that the device is set up in night mode. Digital well-being is also available through One UI. This will show you how long you have spent using the gadget. You can also set timers to limit how much you use the gadget. You can also turn the display grayscale at night with the Wind time feature. You can also add features such as Gesture Navigation and Always-on Display. Although the app icons are too large to fit on the large screen, you can adjust them by going to the settings. You will get preloaded Microsoft Office apps, Samsung Health, Galaxy Wearables, and Samsung Pay. Another disappointing fact is the lack of Face unlock, which is essential for a phone like the Samsung A80.
Galaxy A80 Camera
The biggest selling point of the Galaxy A80 Smartphone is its rotating camera. This rotates the triple rear camera to take amazing selfies. For sharp, detailed photos at high resolution, the main Sony IMX586 48MP f/2.0 Sony IMX586 sensor is included. There’s also an 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera and a ToF (Time of Flight), camera that allows for deep mapping. After switching to selfie mode, the op rear panel opens and the camera system flips to its front. Super Steady Video mode and Flaw detection are also supported by the camera system. Scene Optimizer is also available.
While the main camera has a 12MP resolution, you can also switch to the raw 48MP mode and change the aspect ratio to 3 to 4 H. This feature is great for low-light shots. To capture stunning landscapes and scenes, the 48MP mode is best used in daylight mode. The images may not be as sharp or detailed as you would like, but it is still very good in comparison to Xiaomi and other market players such as Xiaomi. The camera app has a night mode, but the photos clicked were not very good. The night mode works only with the main camera, and not in wide-angle mode. The LED light is not available in selfie mode. You will need to rely on the display light to accomplish the same task.
Galaxy A80 Battery
Although you might expect a large battery with this phone, it is actually quite small in comparison to other models released under the Samsung Galaxy flagship. This Smartphone won’t offer exceptional battery life. It will still work for you if you use it only for normal browsing and not to watch youtube videos. The only thing that is positive about the battery is its ability to optimize power consumption.
