As we all know, this year is undoubtedly the first year of commercial 5G technology, and for ordinary users, the most intuitive to feel the convenience of 5G, naturally is the most closely related to our mobile phone. As the first manufacturer to launch 5G smartphones, Samsung has launched the Galaxy S10 5G version and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 plus 5G version, quickly established a position in the market for 5G phones.
However, with the continuous promotion of 5G technology and the domestic mobile phone manufacturers have joined, so far, including Huawei Mate20 X 5G, ZTE Sky machine, iQOO Pro, Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G and many other 5G into the market, which will also be 5G mobile phone prices from the earlier price of nearly 10,000 yuan quickly pulled down the “shrine”, Instantly attracted a lot of eager users to taste the stupid mind.
And this time Samsung with the new Galaxy A90 5G, but also into the “killing” the most intense and incomparable vast chinese market, how is its performance? What are the advantages compared to many lower-priced domestic 5G phones? Through this experience, I believe we can give you an answer.
Appearance: Gorgeous U-screen for an amazing immersion experience
As this year’s unusually fast Galaxy A series, the new Samsung Galaxy A90 5G basically follows the generally uniform design of other A-Series models in appearance, with different positioning in the details of the corresponding design.
On the front, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, officially known as the “Beautiful U-Screen”, which, like its name, has a brilliant display.
On the screen of Liu Hai and the lower border processing is OK, especially the width of the chin, fully reached the level of the top flagship, greatly improved the phone’s screen share, the screen ratio reached 93.4%, in the game to watch movies is more shocking.
Not only that, but the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G also features on-screen fingerprint recognition technology that unlocks them very quickly, fingerprints under the screen and hides sensors under the screen to make the phone more integrated.
On the back of the fuselage, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G offers space white and holographic black color schemes, and we get a holographic black color scheme that is more calm and introverted than the white version. Black in the light will reveal a dazzling pattern of light, and the use of a unique four-plate design, so that the four areas of color, gloss collide with each other, with the change of light flash different texture color of the dazzling light, holding in the hand is very recognizable.
In addition, the rear of the machine vertical row three cameras, and because the whole machine has a certain thickness, so the rear camera of the machine almost no bulge, basically achieved with the back plate flush.
In the middle frame, as the flagship model, the machine naturally adopts the mainstream flagship standard metal border, and with the front screen and the back of the 3D arc body combined, excessive very natural, so in the grip of the hand, there is a very good feeling. It is worth noting that the machine does not retain the 3.5 mm headphone connector.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G has a very sophisticated design, even positioning the mid-range products, in the design and workmanship also has the level comparable to the flagship machine, the screen display and the overall face value and feel are relatively good.
Configuration: When the Dragon 855 encounters 5G strong more than performance
Since it is a 5G mobile phone, its 5G performance is naturally the biggest bright spot of the machine. The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is equipped with the Dragon 855 mobile platform, which enables 5G networks through the external X50 base, supports 5G networks in NSA (non-independent networking) mode, but does not support SA (independent network) mode 5G network connectivity.
About SA and NSA, I believe that many users have heard these two nouns, but the difference between the two may not be clear, and the information on the network is not completely accurate, and even some misleading reports and even rumors, such as “support ingress nsa5G network 5G mobile phone next year can no longer be used”, “NSA is a fake 5G”. “Wait a minute.” So why is the vast majority of 5G mobile phones are currently using the NSA non-independent networking scheme?
In fact, simply put, the NSA is in the 4G to 5G promotion process in the transition phase of the way, can fully facilitate the existing 4G base station deployment, deployment difficulty and cost is low, easy smooth transition. SA network is completely independent of 4G network, the need to redeploy a new 5G base station, the short-term construction costs are higher, operators face the financial pressure is almost a short period of time can not afford, which is the world’s general use of NSA network scheme first the main reason.
Overall, the NSA network compared to SA network technology scheme although there are different, but there is no true and false points, there is no next year failure, false 5G, and in the future for a longer period of time it is still the mainstream solution in the 5G network, users can be assured to use the NSA mode of 5G mobile phones.
As for the machine’s 5G speed experience, in the actual use, whether it is to download applications, songs, or watch high-definition video online, almost can not see the buffer process, instantly complete the download or on-demand. As for latency, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G 5G network latency compared to the 4G network environment is indeed reduced, but not very obvious, mainly because of the current NSA networking transmission characteristics, in the future SA networking mode mature, 5G network latency will be greatly reduced.
As for the performance of the Dragon 855 mobile platform, I believe that we all have a number in mind, we will not do too much detail here. However, in order to give everyone a more intuitive sense of the performance level of the machine, we still through the mainstream Rabbit rabbit and Geekbench performance test platform to run the score test.
Test results show that the machine rabbit score 371874, Geekbench single-core score 3387, multi-core score 10820, such a result in the top flagship performance is also extremely excellent, to meet the daily performance needs are no pressure.
At the same time, the author also selected the “Peace Elite” this most mainstream hand tour to carry out the actual experience. In the picture quality set to “HDR HD”, the number of frames set to “limit” case, the machine “Peace Elite” full frame rate can easily reach 60 frames full frame state, the entire game in the process of switching doors, shooting, driving, switching perspective and other scenes are very smooth, without the slightest caton.
Photo: 48 megapixel three-camera with professional quality
In terms of photography, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G uses a rear 48-megapixel main camera plus 8 megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera plus a 5-megapixel virtual camera for the mainstream three-camera program, a front-facing 32-megapixel camera, and 48-megapixel main camera for analyzing super-force imaging during daily photo-taking, recording more details, The ultra-wide-angle camera records a wider, more impactful field of view, while the pixel four-in-one technology supported by the camera can increase the area of a single pixel by four times, resulting in more light intake, increased brightness and reduced noise. Although one telephoto lens is less than the many four flagships on the market, this configuration is already sufficient for everyday shooting.
Not much to say, we directly through the real-life sample to see the real performance of the camera.
During the day, thanks to the 48 megapixel ultra-clear lens, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G samplein in the resolution force, color reproduction, exposure, white balance and other aspects have a very good performance, rich screen level, clear details, light and dark transition nature, Details of both bright and dark areas are well preserved.
In the difficult night shooting, even in the standard mode, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G night sample dynamic range and picture purity are very high, there is no increase in brightness and caused by the screen overexposure, distortion effect, the color of the light is better restored, the screen effect is very pleasing.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is equipped with a 123-degree ultra-wide-angle lens that nearly times the field of view compared to conventional lenses, allowing for more stunning photos in limited space. From the above sample, the building in ultra-wide angle mode is more prominent, while the larger scene can be presented in a larger, shocking perspective.
Night mode sample:
Samsung Galaxy A90 5G supportnight mode, after turning on this mode, the overall brightness of the picture compared to the standard mode has a certain improvement, can bring more rich dark details, while the highlight part of the suppression is also better, reduce the standard mode of light exposure phenomenon, the overall perception of the photo has a more obvious improvement.
Battery life and charging: 4500mAh to help long-term battery not afraid of 5G power consumption
Users who have some knowledge of 5G phones should know that 5G provides a strong network experience for everyone, but also raises more challenges to the consumption of electricity. The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G has a 4500mAh built-in battery that meets the phone’s battery life.
We simulated several common uses in everyday use, including 30 minutes of “chicken”, 30 minutes of WeChat voice calls, 30 minutes of tweeting, 30 minutes of listening to music, and 30 minutes of online video, for a total of 150 minutes of continuous testing. After the test, the remaining battery capacity of up to 75%, according to the calculation, Samsung Galaxy A90 5G can basically meet the continuous online video for 10 hours, or continuous “chicken” 5 hours, such a performance for a 5G phone has been very good, moderate to heavy use of the day can be adhered to.
As for charging, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G also supports 25W fast charging technology, which is also more powerful. However, because the author received is bare metal, and did not randomly with a power adapter, so this assessment does not test charging speed.
In the first year of 5G commercial, Samsung launched its first mid-range 5G handset, the Galaxy A90 5G, for consumers around the world. From the overall experience, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G can be said to be a more understanding of what young people want, it integrates The Qualcomm Dragon 855 processor, 48 megapixel HD three-camera, 6.7-inch gorgeous U-screen, 4500mAh high-capacity battery and 25W super-fast charge and other powerful hardware configurations. Almost in every aspect of the performance is not dead end, and to a certain extent to the flagship mobile phone level.
Of course, the most important, or 4499 yuan price so that more first contact with 5G mobile phone consumers can get a personal understanding of 5G convenient and efficient and powerful charm. The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is the ideal choice if you’ve long-been to a 5G phone and don’t have the money to afford the high price of the top 5G flagship.
