Without pricing we can’t fully decide if the Galaxy A80 will be a hit, but Samsung has at least broken some of its own design moulds to make it. The rotating cameras are wacky but promising and the build quality is excellent.

In my little time with the Samsung Galaxy A80, I feel the smartphone has got all the ingredients of a flagship device. It feels much premium in hands and triple-camera setup in the slide-out mechanism gives it a unique value.

It seems like Samsung is using it as testing ground for new features it might eventually deem worthy enough of gracing its flagship line with. The rotating camera is a cool idea and including things like Super Fast charging and a ToF 3D sensor make me think they were odd omissions on the S10, especially as it's meant to be the brand's hero device.

Interesting design, full uninterrupted display

from Pocket-lint

The Samsung Galaxy A80 has an interesting design that delivers a refreshing change to the norm and we like that about it. We aren't convinced the automatic slider mechanism won't have its issues down the line, but we certainly like the idea of the rotating camera and the huge 6.7-inch uninterrupted display is lovely.

For a younger consumer who lives their life through social networks, then it may well be more attractive than a lot of flagships. This appears to be a phone you can use to publicise your whole life with. Our only concern would be that mechanical telescopic camera, which we’d worry about breaking over time. But right now, colour us impressed with the Samsung A80.

The Samsung Galaxy A80 is definitely one of the most eye-catching and unusual mid-range smartphones to emerge in recent times and, looking beyond its flashy flipping camera, it has the makings of a serious flagship rival. That gorgeous all-screen AMOLED display makes the A80’s notched competitors seem ugly and outdated, while the internal components and 3,7500mAh battery should make it an excellent all-round performer.

Pops-up and takes us for a spin

from TechRadar

It's the rotating, pop-up cameras which will draw attention to the Samsung Galaxy A80, but this phone isn't just a one-trick pony. Samsung has packed in plenty of features to make the A80 a compelling device.
