    This phone cannot complete with Chinese mid range phones. But in the western. Market, it'd be a totally different story.

  7. @petouser

    The bezels are huge compared to nothing 2a and redmi note 13 pro.

  8. @philnelson8789

    Hey Ben. Greetings from England. Are you going to do a more in depth review of the Infinix note 40 pro plus?

  9. @3lectronic0

    I prefer plastic with Snapdragon, than Aluminum with Exynos, virtual proximity "sensor", and those screen bezels 👎

  10. @kmahadev8243

    Over priced for the screen and processor. Demo showed it's not worth it

  11. @searklarak

    It's a good phone, but the Nothing 2a, OnePlus Ace 3V or even the Google Pixel 8a should be better options with superior hardware and cameras unless you just dislike Chinese brands for political or whatever reasons.

  12. Better buy at sales or a S23 deal for the price. Even this will discounted to 350$ soon.🙂

  13. 1) EXPENSIVE for midrange! The previous (A54) was sold for about 100$ less. That's insane increase in price for midrange.
    2) No telephoto because it will kill the sales of the S series.
    3) The ONLY thing that keeps Samsung above Xiaomi is the fact when it comes to the OS Xiaomi is HORRIBLE. I know people who bought the Xiaomi 14 and selling it because of the OS. Samsung are superb when it comes to OS updates and fixing bugs. Chinese brands are notorious for failing to do so.
    4) And finally – Bluetooth does not support Snapdragon's APT-X HD etc codecs which leaves you with low-quality audio playback, unless you buy the expensive Samsung earbuds.

  14. @-ns-8972

    Unsubbing you for your biased views.
    India is a close 2nd largest market in THE WORLD and yet you all talk nothing about our market. Great kudos to you then carry on. Your channel ain't for me. I had been following you for such a long time but i guess not anymore until i see you covering our market.
    I know you'll take offence to this but do know i mean non.
    Peace !! ✌🏾

    @ben'sgadgetreviews Is the silver ring still on the selfie hole punch like previous a series ?

  16. @chinsengfatt

    S20fe5g with charger Samsung 15w. Haha acceptable. 1 hour charged 85%

  17. @darling_yext

    They upgraded the build quality, which is one thing that's going for it, the other is the software support, and that's it. It comes in an awful packaging with average cameras, can't compete with chinese brands at this price.

  18. @subhaa_

    A mid-range phone this expansive and still no telephoto lens. What a waste.

  19. @andyH_England

    About £400 cheaper than the S24 and comparing specs, for most Samsung users the A55 will be a solid choice, especially in Europe where both use Exynos and we know from history that the mid-range Exynos chips are more stable than the flagship versions.
