The Samsung Galaxy A80 features a top-notch glass design with a metal frame running around its frames, which feels good to hold. It is thick at about 165.2 x 76.5 x 9.3mm, making it difficult to use with one hand. The power switch is on the phone’s right; the volume is on the left. It is available in different colours including black, gold, and white.
The Samsung Galaxy A80 features a big display and screen size of 6.7 Inches with an impressive resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The screen is big and bright enough to for users to enjoy games and videos.
The triple-rotating camera is the big new feature here. The camera setup includes a 3D Depth module, an ultra-wide 8-megapixel f2.2 (128-degree) component, and the main 48-megapixel f.20 shooters. For a mid-range phone, this is a tantalizing setup.
When you hit the lens flip button in the camera app, the panel slips upwards, and the whole unit revolves on its X-axis, prepared for wide-angle, high-quality self-portrait shots. The smartphone features a Live Focus mode, and a brand new addition is the Live Focus video.
A 3,500mAh battery – not the best return for a smartphone that already kills the floor in terms of amazing camera quality, powers the Galaxy A80.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Things You Will Like About The Smartphone
High-Quality Build: You must appreciate this smartphone’s build-up and design. Samsung decided to opt for an all-glass body design with a metal frame for their latest A-series lineup, and it has got fans buzzing.

Samsung Galaxy A80: Things May Not Like About The Smartphone
No MicroSD card slot for Memory Expansion: This is a strange one from Samsung. The Samsung Galaxy does not feature a microSD card slot, and the internal memory cannot be expanded. Yes! You heard that right. While the smartphone boasts an enormous 128 GB inbuilt memory, most fans would have preferred a dedicated slot for MicroSD for optional internal storage expansion. Not the best news here.
Unimpressive Battery Capacity: Samsung comes short again with the battery capacity of Galaxy A80. Although the battery capacity s quite fair on paper, lovers of Samsung smartphones would have expected more, considering the better battery capacity boasted by other smartphones in the same category. Galaxy A80 manages 3500mAh and comes short of the battery capacity boasted by Galaxy A60 and others in the A-series.
