Review of Samsung’s Galaxy A90 5G tri-lens camera, after a week of testing. Here’s how this premium-priced A-series smartphone handles photo and video capture, including bonus camera features like the portrait mode, night mode and more.
The Samsung A90 5G is a more affordable alternative to the S10+ model, costing under £700 here in the UK. Of course that still makes it more pricey than non-5G phones like the Asus Zenfone 6 and OnePlus 7T, which serve up respectable optics for a mid-range price tag.
The A90 has sacrificed some camera smarts compared with the S-series blowers. You may get a 48MP primary lens, but the dual aperture design has been ditched, as has OIS. You also no longer have a telephoto lens, something most rival mobiles offer. The limitations of the sensor and lens combo becomes most obvious at night and indoors, where photo quality really dips.
In my reviews of other Samsung smartphone cameras, I’m usually impressed by the video chops. However, this 5G Galaxy once again falls against the competition in this area, making it a tough recommendation.
Check back for my in-depth verdict on this blower, going live straight after this video lands!
