It’s not just the high-end and overpriced S Series models at Samsung: the Korean manufacturer also offers the A family to appeal to as many people as possible. Versatility is essential, and prices must be between 200 and €550, the average price for a new smartphone according to the latest figures from the GfK firm released in 2024. The Galaxy A55, the most Premium model in this A family, is the perfect example. But we will find it for significantly cheaper on Amazon.

Design and performance: what else?

There is a sense of déjà vu when we grasp the Galaxy A55: this January model is the worthy heir of the previous models, still just as elegant, and once again with the 3 photo sensors integrated soberly and separately on the rear shell. We remain on a large 6.6 inch format, for easy video playback and navigation. And when we switch on we find theone of the famous Super AMOLED panels in Full HD+ from Samsung: bright, well calibrated, we love it.

If the 50 Mpx main sensor “does the job”, we found the ultra-wide angle imprecise, and the macro anecdotal. No notable improvement compared to the previous model, and the same goes for the battery; It’s true that it holds a charge very well, up to two days with moderate use, but the 25W fast charge lasts at least an hour and a half! On the other hand, we will undoubtedly like the rich and clear sound, and the spatialization effect of Dolby Atmos.

Under the hood which, incidentally, has the merit of being waterproof and dustproof with its IP of 67, we find not a Snapdragon chip like on the Premium models, but a 25% more efficient Mediatek than the previous generation, which is obvious in gaming for example. It is compatible with 5G and Wi-Fi 6 (ax), and also with the NFC standard for contactless payment.

Over 25% off

The Galaxy A55 therefore has both the appearance of a Premium, and all the features necessary for the main uses. In his version with 128 GB of internal storage space, and black in color, it can be found on Amazon with a hell of a discount of over 25% on the usual selling price. He then passes from 500 to 387€, but will be delivered without headphones or charger. Allow 10 to 12 days with free standard delivery.

As the purchase remains substantial, Amazon is offering a partnership with Cofidis in order to‘pay in 4 installments by credit card. It is less expensive than the usual consumer credit solutions, since you will only pay 2.3% fees, or less than ten euros. It is also without supporting documents, and the response is immediate. Quite practical, isn’t it?
