I recently showed the Samsung Galaxy A80 to a friend and he was immediately impressed with the phone.

 
“Why isn’t this a flagship,” he asked, wondering how he’d never heard of it. To me it made sense, but only because that’s my job. To him, the Galaxy A80‘s sleek all-screen facade and “futuristic,” as he called it, rotating the camera and sliding design looked infinitely better and more advanced than the Galaxy S10‘s hole-punch display. And I can’t argue with that, it does look cooler. Even the majority of our readers seem to agree, based on one of our recent polls. However, what may at first seem futuristic, is, in fact, nothing more than a compromise to eliminating one issue—in this case the hole-punch camera or notch—that creates other, arguably worse, problems in the grand scheme of things.
 
But the Galaxy A80 looks so much cooler and has a number of advantages over the Galaxy S10 flagship line. Right? For one, it doesn’t have a notch or a hole in its screen. What’s more, even though there’s no dedicated selfie camera, you can now just use the main camera, which simply rotates to face you when needed.
 
This means that you can take high-quality selfies, using all advantages of the triple camera setup on the A80, without compromising the beautiful, edge-to-edge display. So then, why are the flagship phones offered by Samsung, Apple, Huawei, LG, and all other major brands, just dull glass-and-metal slabs with all sorts of different notches and holes in their screens, while more affordable devices from some of the same companies are pushing the boundaries of smartphone design with sliding displays and pop-up cameras? Well, there’s a couple of very, very good reasons for that.

The higher the screen/surface ratio on the phones, the higher the phone manufacturers. So why do Samsung and Apple have the necessary technology, and why don’t they make the phone 100%?

The most recent phone-to-screen ratio is quite important. There are different methods offered by firms that refine the frames as much as they can. With the Galaxy A 80, it turns out that Samsung has been able to store the camera and increase the screen rate without having to drill through the screen. The reason why we do not see such technologies on flagships is why they use a more standard design. There are several different reasons for this.

First of all, these ğ adventure-wanted küçük designs are produced not for the main products, but at lower level devices and for a smaller community. Flagship phones are designed using designs known to work. Moreover, standard and hard design makes the phone last longer. Because of its design, it will not look too hot for a phone that is shattered every time it falls or charges hundreds of pounds.

On the other hand, let’s be honest, selfie cameras have become one of the most important parts on the phones. It is not a good idea for the user experience to make it difficult to access this feature, which is used very often and that people give great importance to.

In other words, smartphone manufacturers prefer the designs that can take the costs they make in the market and take no risk. On the other hand, no matter how good looks, new features are not a step forward in terms of user experience. They may even be counted backward.
