If we look at the display, the OnePlus 7 Pro is the clear winner here for offering the highest resolution with a 90Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy A80 offers the same screen size but is limited to a Full HD+ resolution.
Samsung is betting on the Galaxy A80’s camera capabilities. The smartphone offers a pop-up flip triple-camera setup that Samsung claims can provide quality selfie shots, as well. The Ultra-wide sensor for the front camera which is not found on either of its competition makes the Galaxy A80 a good option for selfie lovers.
When it comes to zooming capabilities, the Reno 10x Zoom offers 10x Hybrid Zoom with its periscope setup. The feature is in its early stages and is bound to improve. In our Reno 10x Zoom review, we found that after zooming the camera to 10x, we could still get decent details.
Performance specs of the Galaxy A80 do not seem right when compared to the price. For the same price, the OnePlus 7 Pro and Oppo Reno 10x Zoom offer a Snapdragon 855 SoC.
