Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy A90 5G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
It’s not exactly cheap, but if you want to jump on the 5G bandwagon with Samsung and aren’t willing to spend the big bucks on the Note 10 Plus then this could very well be the next best option.

Samsung Galaxy A90 5G initial review: A glorious 5G handset for the masses
Source: Pocket Lint English
Based on our first impressions, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is a lovely device and one we'd seriously recommend someone looking for a 5G smartphone consider. It offers a glorious screen (from what we've seen), a fabulous, solid design and it has all the power most people would want, coupled with 5G connectivity. It's an expensive device for the Galaxy A series, but the Galaxy A90 5G has the potential to be the 5G device for the masses.

Samsung Galaxy A90 5G hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
As we already pointed out, Samsung isn't aiming at the premium-seeking users with the Galaxy A90 but instead, it tries to deliver a semi-flagship experience with 5G connectivity at a more reasonable price point, as far as 5G phones go. It's by far the cheapest 5G option out there and it's already out in Korea for roughly €685.

As one of the first affordable 5G phones out there, there's not much to compare the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G to, but its strong performance and display suggest it's not a far cry from premium status.
