Samsung A Series Camera Models Comparison

If you are a photographer, or if photography is very important for you and you are looking for device which is good in terms of price and quality, this blog post may be interesting for you.

Samsung A series is line of mid range smartphones produced in South Korea by Company Samsung Electronics. First Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone was introduced back in 2014 Samsung. That was their first smartphone which had a metallic frame and more premium materials.

In this article we are going to talk more about 2019 series. As I mention on the beginning, these phones are mid range, they all except model A10 have multi lens camera and video stabilization feature. Since this site is about cameras, I am going to give you an overview about their cameras, stills and video capabilities. In the table below you can find almost all 2019 models and their camera characteristics and the price, from which you can make possible purchase decision.

To be honest with you, I had information about specification of few A models, but after research I made for blog post I was literally blown away, what can you get for the reasonable price. Example, for 327 usd you can get camera with 2160p resolution with 30 fps and 1080p with 120 fps (very good for slow motion), multi lens which include 4 lenses (wide, ultra wide, macro and depth). I am talking about model A51.

Up to model A50, specifications are lets say average, but starting from modelA51 things are changing dramatically. Starting from mention model (models A51, A60, A70, A71, A80 and A90) all phones have possibility to record 2160p in video mode. Model A90 is recording the incredible 960 fps, but admittedly in 720p resolution, which is according to my opinion really impressive. Imagine 960 images in only one second.

Models A80 and A90 can offers 2160p resolution in selfie mode (front camera), and all other models (A10, A20, A30, A40, A50, A51, A60, A70 and A71) are recording in 1080p resolution.

For whom are these phones/cameras. Well it depends. In case if you are more oriented in video recording, like to experiment with stills, you should get yourself models starting from A51 and above. If you want to have good mobile phone and to have very useful but average camera, than you choice could be model up to A50.

The price rage is from 152.97 usd for the cheapest A10 model to 769.98 usd for the most expensive model A90. Please bear in mind I was using Amazon pricing, and that the price is probably different in your county.

Anyway, let me know what do you think about these cameras? Do you agree with me or disagree. Please tell me your opinion in the comments below.

Below you have detailed still and video capabilities for the 10 existing A Samsung models. Hope it will help you to make better purchase.
