About Galaxy A80 - Review, Specs + more

With the Galaxy A80, Samsung introduces the new top model of its mid-range A-series smartphones. In addition to powerful hardware, it offers you new selfie options with its innovative camera technology.

What you need to know:

  • Retractable triple camera
  • Large display in 20:9 format
  • Reasonable 3700 mAh battery

Up to now, the Galaxy A70 was the top of the (so called) upper-middle class of Samsung phones, but now the Galaxy A80 joins in between the A70 and the more premium device- the Galaxy S10e.

Should I buy an GalaxyA80?

What makes the new top model of the A series an eye-catcher, is the innovative use of the triple camera: If you use it as usual as the main camera back, you have the choice between a 48-megapixel camera with wide-angle optics and an 8-megapixel camera with 123 degree ultrawide angle. This is joined by a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor to measure the depth of space for portraits with digital bokeh.

The real innovation is that you use the same camera for selfies: with a light tap on the selfie icon, the camera moves out of the case at the top and turns 180 ° towards the user in a flash. The advantage: The same high-performance camera module is also available as a front camera, without losing any space on the display surface.

Thanks to the camera embed here, the huge 6.7-inch OLED display is almost rimless. It resolves in Full HD Plus quality (2400 × 1080 pixels) and protects an integrated fingerprint sensor. TechRadar reckons the display delivers strong contrasts and intense colours. Given the huge format, the sharpness is just going to be okay though, not massively impressive - but don't write it off completely. This is a mid-range phone and Samsung could not make it hugely impressive in every department...!

The rest of the equipment is also worth a look. Inside, a new Snapdragon 7150 processor with 8 cores is working. Together with a RAM of 8 GB, most applications should run smoothly. The internal memory is very generous with 128 GB, if necessary you can extend it by a Micro SD card.

Enough energy is provided by a 3700 mAh battery, which should soon be ready for use again thanks to the Super Fast Charging function.

Our Verdict - the Galaxy A80

With a hardware rating of 4 out of 5 stars, the Samsung Galaxy A80 meets most people's demand - except power users, perhaps. The main positive is that it's a great mid-range phone, with most of the features that most users could want. Samsung are at risk of eating too far into S sales here, with the A range, particularly when it looks as great as it does.

But negative points can also be found. The mechanics are not convincing. You always have to be on your guard and treat the smartphone even more caring than the already vulnerable other phones in the Samsung stable. Also disappointing is the slow fingerprint sensor.

What alternatives should I consider?

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy A80 is a smartphone with some huge benefits, albeit with a very focussed target audience, and a higher than expected price. Only Samsung enthusiasts should take a closer look at the Galaxy A80. For everyone else, there are less playful, but more powerful top models, such as the Huawei P30, or the OnePlus 7 Pro. They cost less, as they don't have the "Samsung Premium", but have the same or better features.

How much does the Galaxy A80 cost?

In the UK, the Samsung Galaxy A80 costs £599.

Some stores will sell it for slightly less as time passes. However if you prefer to buy on contract, you can pay around £35 a month for a 24 month contract.

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy A80?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Samsung Galaxy A80, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy A80 ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy A80 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy A80 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

Out of our 5087 Samsung Galaxy A80 deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy A80 deal over the entire life of the contract is £408.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Samsung Galaxy A80 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Samsung Galaxy A80 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy A80 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Samsung Galaxy A80 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
