Cheapest I've seen from a big retailer, nice compact design for a small-ish price, decent specs as well if you just have to stick with Samsung

Shame it's only for the Coral (pink'ish) coloured version. The black and blue versions are £219. Great price of you like the Coral colour. So great added.

Cheers mate
Is this any good? Seems decent for the price. Anyone got one?
Very decent price. Normally costs £219.99 everywhere else. My daughter needs one.

I've had mine since Christmas. No complaints. Battery lasts me all day, even since lockdown and I'm on it more. Camera is very good. Quick and responsive. I've not had any trouble with it at all. I mainly use for social media and playing music either via alexa or sonos. 64gb seems to be plenty for me too.
Samsung A90 5G needs to come back in stock... Cmon Samsung!

I have gone from an iPhone 6s to this phone.

The 6s is still a faster and more responsive device and its 5 years old.

The main problem with the phone is the CPU. It is just so god damn slow. The screen is really nice, 4gb of ram which should be plenty. Android 10. Just the CPU lets it down. It lags just scrolling in Youtube etc.

The camera is really bad as well unless light conditions are perfect. But I dont use it all that much so not much of a concern for me.
I have one of these as my work phone and it's very good. Was running it alongside my S8 until recently and there wasn't much between them. S8 had the edge of course, but not massively.

I had a slightly different experience. Its a good phone- battery life appears fine. I'm not running any major 3d games on it, so it performs well for my usage and isn't too laggy. Camera is good in daytime (not had the same problems as you) - no OIS and I do not know about the night time performance. I do find the Samsung apps a tad annoying tbh. Sound quality is good too.

So I would recommend this phone, even at the more expensive Amazon price I paid.

I have this phone and it's pretty good for the price (had an iPhone 6s before but couldnt afford to replace with another iphone). I don't find it slow and the camera is not bad.

I got it since last summer. I find very good and battery last full day.
Some of these phones are so well priced. Great deal
Out of stock now, shame as that was a solid deal!
Is the camera better than google pixel 2xl?
This a lot cheaper than the iPhone se

Noooo


Oh man...Wife doesn't like the camera on her S9 anymore, apparently, camera's focus doesn't work when she take photos. She wants a phone and I thought I will get away cheap this time:)))...

Better than normal Google Pixel 3?

You mean the camera? They use the same hardware but Pixel 3 has additional visual processing chip. The resulting images are similar though.

Yes, I ment xamera, forgot to mention.
Thanks for the info.
This or a Redmi Note 8T? It's for my 15 year old nephew, mainly for videos and a bit of gaming (nothing too demanding though).
And the Note 8 Pro is only £20 more (or the same as this Samsung). Any thoughts? Ta

The note 8 pro all day out of the 3 bud.
Excellent phone for me! Get a cover for it as the colour is terrible. I luckerly got this phone off ebay for 80£ from someone who didn't like it and wanting an iphone again after a couple of weeks having it! Would recommend but I don't do social media constant video watching selfies etc. So I don't know how good it is for all that but it connects to the Van for sat nav, calls and texts so good enough for me. Fits micro sd card too for extra room. Fingerprint recognition on the back is a good idea too.
