The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G: All That it is Cracked Up to Be?

We have all heard that 5G connectivity is soon to become commonplace.  It therefore stands to reason that major providers such as Samsung are leading the way and offering a number of unique options.  One primary example of this trend can be seen in the Galaxy A90.  Equipped with 5G functionality, there is no doubt that this model will have an impact upon the entire industry.  However, what are some of the main features to take into account and are there any possible drawbacks (besides the fact that 5G might not be available in all locations for an extended period of time)?  Let’s take a closer look at what the experts have had to say up until this point. 

An Innate Relationship with the A Series

As we should have expected, the A90 5G is more of a reiteration of the A series than anything else.  However, this is not to say that it is unable to offer a host of impressive features.  A stunning display, a sleek design and excellent performance all fall into this category.  However, we need to keep in mind that the A90 is not intended to replace more cutting-edge Samsung models.  It is instead meant to replace the previous flagship A series.  It is also a mid-range phone in terms of price; a very important factor if you are governed by a limited budget.


Samsung has been known for the upping the ante in terms of its displays and the A90 will not disappoint.  Unlike some other models which have retained LCD displays, this unit is equipped with a Super AMOLED display of 6.7 inches.  Although not as large as the iPhone XS, the fact of the matter is that HD videos and 4K capabilities are well within the grasp of the average consumer.  339 pixels per inch is also impressive when we consider the smaller size of this screen. 


The Samsung A90 5G is equipped with three separate cameras.  The primary unit offers 48 megapixels of resolution and the secondary is associated with 8 megapixels; both respectable figures.  A third is dedicated entirely to selfies and it boasts an additional 8 megapixels.  Once again, these are not top-of-the-line specs.  They are instead very applicable to a phone that is priced at the middle of the range. 

Performance and Memory

The A90 is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset; the very same processing system that has been used on other top Samsung Android phones.  In other words, users should be able to enjoy very few issues in terms of performance of download speeds.  128 gigabytes of built-in storage is offered as standard and users have the choice between 6 and 8 gigabytes of RAM.  While the operating system (currently) is Android 9.0, we should fully expect an upgrade in the near future.

The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is certainly worth considering if you are looking fora  mid-range model that is able to offer a substantial level of processing power alongside stunning HD resolution.  Still, keep in mind that this is not a top-of-the-line model.
