Flashback: Galaxy A80's flip-up camera is still unique in Samsung's line-up

20 March 2022
The phone had an unblemished Infinity display - no notches, no holes - and it still kept bezels thin all around.

CptPower, 22 Mar 2022Well looks pretty interesting i really wonder why no succes... moreWhy? Easy, the camera trend is not at there anymore, i remembered when oppo and vivo first made the mechanical pop up camera and other brand like xiaomi and lately samsung and asus joined the trend

But now the trend is changing, they rather use punch hole or waterdrop notch to put selfie cam, i guess it because the mechanical system is too expensive for the margins, easier to get dust and jamming, some people are careless like dropping off the phone, dropped phone can damage the mechanical system and repaired it will be more expensive than repaired the ordinary camera

      I definitely considered this at the time, but ultimately I'm not a big selfie person at all and the price:performance ratio didn't cut it - ended up instead between the A90 5G (which was arguably the test car for the S20 FE) and the A70, getting the latter courtesy of a Black Friday carrier deal that included an add-on I did care about - free mobile-only access to pay-TV sports network BT Sport.

      Well, I cared about it on Black Friday 2019 at least...

              This flip over camera function is a better solution with superb camera quality for both front and rear shooting. I think it should be in the flagship implementation.

                Anonymous, 21 Mar 2022Metal is premium. Give me back those antenna strips any time.1000% agreed. I don't know why OEMs stopped using aluminum unibody designs, it felt so premium. The HTC One M8 and OnePlus 3 are my favorite aluminum phones.

                  For Samsung, pretty OK main camera, actually.

                          The Galaxy Alpha never had a successor tbh, also the A series was originally meant to be mid rangers with premium materials (inspired by older Nokia phones and carried out by Android Nokias as well) but now the A/M/F series phones are just poorly built, generic phones with a Samsung tramp stamp. Almost every brand is going towards that trend sadly

                              "Glass looks better."

                              Plastic looks exactly like glass.. lol plastic is literally the most versatile piece of chemistry in history..

                              "Glass deals with heat better."

                              Not true.. RESIN Based plastics are worse than glass

                              Ever heard of themal conductive polymers???

                              This is dependent on the type of polymer

                              Glass is easily recycled.

                              So is plastics again it depends on the chemistry

                              Glass is not bad for the planet.

                              Lololol you do realise we currently have a sand shortage right?

                              Glass creation DOES negatively impact the environment

                              "Glass does not need petroleum to exist."

                              But often times petroleum is burned to produce glass SMH...

                                Nothing wrong with this phone, but the OIS of the main camera (and the internal storage). I thought the weight is a wrong thing too but I understand why it should be.

                                  This phone has terrible battery life..
