The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is Samsung’s first attempt at a sort-of affordable 5G phone. But it has arrived before 5G tech itself is all that affordable. Not every part is similarly impressive, though. The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G’s cameras don’t stack up well against almost any other phone at the price, which makes you question whether 5G is worth it.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is a big phone, like almost all the early 5G brigade. This choice makes sense. If you are keen on 5G, you may want it for faster video streaming, which just doesn’t fit well with a little screen. There’s an obvious downside to this too. The Galaxy A90 is a handful, and it doesn’t quite fit as snug into your pockets as other phones.
Almost all high-end phones are made of glass and metal, but for some reason, the Galaxy A90 seems particularly slippery. The Samsung Galaxy A90 is made to similar standards as the Galaxy S10 family, with one important difference. The front isn’t curved at the sides like the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S10, and it doesn’t have the border-free look of those phones. However, the back is curved, both the front and back are tough Gorilla Glass, and the bit in the middle is metal. There’s also no visible plastic border between the two, often used as an impact buffer that likely makes the phones easier to produce.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 has a very large 6.7-inch screen. And just like the outer design, there are some similarities with Samsung’s top models, without quite going all the way to the signature flagship style. It’s an OLED panel with the same ‘vivid’ and standard colour modes as the Note 10, excellent contrast and good top brightness. The Galaxy A90 also has a teardrop notch rather than a punch-hole, a smoothed-off semi-circle that bites into the middle of the top of the display.
Samsung may have put the same processor as the S10 phones into the Samsung Galaxy A90, but the camera hardware is a different story. This phone has three rear cameras, but none of them is at or near the level of the 12MP kind Samsung really favours. The main camera uses the 48MP Sony IMX586, also seen in phones like the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro, Oppo Reno 2Z, OnePlus 7T and Honor 20. The pattern? All of these are cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy A90, some dramatically so.
The Sony IMX586 is a half-inch sensor with a quad-bayer array. This uses four times the number of sensor pixels for each little block of colour information that goes into the final image. As such, the sensor is designed from its very bones to capture 12MP pics rather than 48MP ones. The other two rear cameras are a relatively tiny 8MP Samsung sensor (S5K4HA) with an ultra-wide lens and a 5MP (S5K5E9) depth sensor. There is no zoom as well. While there is 4K video capture, it’s only at 30fps, not 60fps, and it rules out the use of image stabilization.
