Samsung Galaxy A55 Review: Disappointing Display Quality

The Samsung Galaxy A55 falls short in delivering a vibrant display experience that users expect from midrange smartphones in 2024. One of its major drawbacks is the washed-out colors and lack of a wider color gamut compared to its competitors.

Display Quality---
The most glaring issue with the Galaxy A55 is its lackluster display. The colors appear muted and washed-out, failing to provide the vividness and richness found in other midrange phones. Whether you're browsing photos, watching videos, or simply navigating the interface, the screen's underwhelming color reproduction detracts from the overall user experience.

Color Accuracy and Gamut---

Unlike its peers in the midrange segment, the Galaxy A55 struggles to reproduce colors accurately and lacks a wider color gamut. This deficiency becomes especially evident when viewing content that demands high color fidelity, such as HDR videos or detailed photographs. The subdued colors make the display feel outdated and unsuitable for multimedia enthusiasts or users who prioritize visual quality.

Brightness and Viewing Experience---
Additionally, the brightness levels of the Galaxy A55's display are subpar, particularly under direct sunlight or bright indoor conditions. This limits outdoor usability and further diminishes the already compromised viewing experience.


In conclusion, while the Samsung Galaxy A55 offers competitive features in other aspects, such as performance and build quality, its display quality leaves much to be desired. Potential buyers should consider alternatives that offer superior color vibrancy and a wider color gamut within the same price range. If display quality is a priority for your smartphone usage, you may find the Galaxy A55's screen performance very disappointing.

For consumers seeking a vibrant and visually engaging display experience, exploring other midrange options might be more rewarding than settling for the compromised visual fidelity of the Galaxy A55.

Users can expect enhancements in color reproduction, brightness, and possibly even support for a wider color gamut through upcoming software updates. With these improvements, Samsung aims to elevate the Galaxy A55's display to meet or exceed the standards set by its competitors.

This is something that should have been fixed uptill now. Its been months since release. This display issue got fixed A35 but not yet in A55 which is absolutely ridiculous.

Sadly samsung still acts like they are not aware of the issue. They are not even aware that the vivid slider doesn't work 🤦‍

 

See their response below

 

Thank-you for contacting Samsung Electronics.

 

Your reference number for your enquiry is: 

 

 

Galaxy phone displays aren't just beautiful; they're smart, too. Samsung's adaptive super AMOLED screen optimizes the color range, saturation, and sharpness of the picture depending on what you're watching or doing. Our phones also offer the ability to customize the color settings to match your preferences.

 

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.

 

Adjust color settings manually

 

Note: If your screen is in black and white, or grayscale, you may need to disable Visibility enhancements or sleep mode.

 

Hmm, something doesn't look quite right. Maybe the color balance is off. We can help you adjust the color settings.

 

From Settings, tap Display, and then tap Screen mode. Tap Vivid or Natural.

 

If you choose Vivid, you can adjust the slider to make the display look cooler or warmer. You can also tap Advanced settings to manually adjust the screen's color.

Vivid color setting selected with slider bar below

 

Note: Some adjustments may not be available if you have the Blue light filter, accessibility color filters, or Adaptive color tone turned on.

 

Screen still not to your liking? Check out all the additional display settings available. Your Galaxy also supports visibility enhancements to make the screen easier to use for anyone!

 

 

 

If you would like any further information or assistance, please feel free to contact us on 0800-724-000 or click on the contact us link at the bottom of this e-mail.

 

Kind Regards

I recently bought Samsung A55 as an upgrade from Samsung a52 LTE but unfortunately the display is so bad that am looking for another phone with a better display to buy. This device is so pricy, yet the display is just awkward.

Samsung A55 display is just awful :smiling-face:

I have been a Samsung fan for long time, but this model made me feel I wasted money. I Should have even bought cheaper model. If there is an update that will improve display quality, this should be hastened

Hi, I'm also out shopping for another phone. I can't stand the A55 display and Samsung won't take it back 😤 neither will they admit that the display is awful.

It's really disappointing especially considering the price of the phone. Looking to dispose it and get a cheaper model.
