The A90 5G feels like a flagship in most of the ways that matter - slick design, fast specs, and a whopping big display - and the omissions mostly make sense too - wireless charging, waterproofing, and curved edges are the sort of nice-to-haves that most can live without. If your priority is getting a 5G phone and you don’t mind a slightly limited camera, the A90 is a solid and affordable-ish option.

A slightly more ‘affordable’ option to those wanting to get into 5G early

It's not exactly cheap, but if you want to jump on the 5G bandwagon with Samsung and aren't willing to spend the big bucks on the Note 10 Plus then this could very well be the next best option.

Based on our first impressions, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G is a lovely device and one we'd seriously recommend someone looking for a 5G smartphone consider. It offers a glorious screen (from what we've seen), a fabulous, solid design and it has all the power most people would want, coupled with 5G connectivity. It's an expensive device for the Galaxy A series, but the Galaxy A90 5G has the potential to be the 5G device for the masses.
