Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A50

87% Samsung Galaxy A50 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Triple rear-facing cameras and a bright AMOLED screen on a midrange smartphone? That may sound like an intoxicating mix, but can the Samsung Galaxy A50 match expectations? Read on in this detailed review to find out.
86% Samsung Galaxy A50 Review: Is it a real midrange contender?
Source: Manila Shaker English
With its premium design, Samsung Galaxy A50 was able to impress its take on the design and build. Lightweight in hand, this device feels like a flagship phone. Camera performance is just average despite having a larger sensor and triple-rear camera set up. On the other hand, over-all performance in gaming and multi-tasking is a bit above what we expected. Plus, the use of Super AMOLED and USB Type-C technologies have made Samsung Galaxy A50 stand out.

Samsung got a lot of things right in the Galaxy A50 - the design and color options, the screen, the performance, and the battery life. The still images, while not impressive in detail, are of high-resolution and dependable to get the scene right no matter the available light and weather conditions. The 1080p videos are impressive, too.

Source: The Indian Express English
Given the price point, the Samsung Galaxy A50 offers good features and decent value for money. The camera is fairly good, however, the in-display fingerprint reader is a tad slow, however, this may get resolved in the coming updates. At this price point, the Samsung Galaxy A50 looks like a good buy at the moment.

Samsung Galaxy A50 review: Samsung’s best mid-ranger in years
Source: Android Authority English
Yes, it looks pretty good and yes, the performance is more than sufficient for the price, but what really stood out for me was the clean and optimized user experience. This phone does not get in the way or bother you with extended permissions, and it definitely does not pop up advertisements. For me, and I would imagine a significant number of users, this is a pretty big incentive.

Samsung Galaxy A50 Review: Premium design, triple cameras are the key highlights
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Samsung Galaxy A50 can be considered as one of the best-designed smartphones from Samsung. The Prism-style gradient finish gives a pretty cool look, while the display is another plus point. The new user interface comes with its share of hits and misses and the camera performance is a mixed bag one. Overall, if you are a Samsung loyalist then this phone might excite, else you can consider Xiaomi Poco F1, Nokia 8.1 and Vivo V11 Pro which comes loaded with some great performance coupled with capable cameras and new technologies.

Samsung Galaxy A50 review: Worthy mid-range phone competing with Poco F1
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 19,990 (4GB/64GB), the Samsung Galaxy A50 seems to be an identical twin of the Galaxy M30; albeit, with a gradient reflective design, sleek operating system, an in-display fingerprint sensor and a slightly powerful processor. At its price, the phone competes with the likes of Xiaomi Poco F1 and Honor Play.

Galaxy A50 review: Samsung’s most value-for-money mid-ranger yet
Source: Sam Mobile English
The Galaxy A50, like the Galaxy M20, isn’t great in any one aspect other than that Super AMOLED display, but the overall package is a good one for the asking price (₹19,990, or $292) for a Samsung smartphone. Samsung continues to be the only manufacturer giving you ultra-wide rear cameras in the budget and mid-range, and the Galaxy A50 has excellent battery life and comes with Android Pie and Samsung’s latest One UI interface and features.

Moving to the verdict, this is yet Samsung’s best smartphone in this segment that offers value. It has an on-screen fingerprint scanner, gorgeous AMOLED display, and an impressive design that makes it a worthy challenger. The Samsung Galaxy A50 is a recommended buy if you are looking for a midrange phone with an all-rounder package.

Unfortunately for Samsung, the Galaxy A50 with its starting price of Rs. 19,990 competes with Xiaomi's Poco F1 (Review) which features the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. That's obviously the better choice of phone if you're a gamer or want the smoothest possible experience, but it doesn't have three rear cameras or a modern all-screen design.

There’s no pricing set as of yet for both phones, but it’s clear that Samsung is positioning them at the mid-range segment of the market. We’re hoping Samsung has learned that pricing matters in the hyper-competitive mid-range segment, and prices both phones accordingly if and when they’re released in the Philippines.

We would love to test this performance in more depth, though. So, hopefully, the Tab S5e stops by the office at some point. We're also kind interested to see how Samsung's new phone sync feature works. As per press materials, it should allow you to pick up a phone call on your tablet, without having your phone around just as you can with an iPad/iPhone combo.

Source: Sam Mobile English
In the brief time that we have spent with the devices at MWC 2019, the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A30 appear to be worthy successors to the Galaxy A handsets of 2018. The new naming convention aside, they offer a nice mix of features at what will undoubtedly be a relatively affordable price. The Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A30 will go on sale in mid-March with India most likely being the first country to get them. The sheer amount of localized content on the devices on display here suggest that much.

Model: The Samsung Galaxy A50 is a mid-range smartphone with decent hardware and camera. The A series Samsung smartphones typically offer great cameras but at a lower price point. The Galaxy A50 is no exception. It is designed to be pure, premium and aesthetic. Whether in modern white or black, or a brilliant coral or blue, the slim body fits comfortably in hand. And the 3D classic back and On-Screen Fingerprint scanner means users have smooth, seamless curves on all sides. The Galaxy A50 is 7.7 mm in thickness, weighs 166 g, runs on Android 9.0 (Pie). Its Triple camera consists of an ultra-wide camera with a 123-degree field of vision like the human eye, as well as a 25 MP (F1.7) camera for bright, clear photos all day. And to round out, a 5 MP depth camera adjusts the depth of field. Whether taking photos of food, pets, or the things users love, the Scene Optimizer recognizes and enhances it using artificial intelligence. So, users get the optimum level of brightness, saturation, and more to capture reality as they remember it. As for the display, the Galaxy A50 comes with a 6.4-inch infinity-U display. The display covers the phone edge to edge for a phone that is nearly bezel-less. And with FHD+ resolution and AMOLED color, users can dive deep into their favorite vlogs and livestreams. For performance, the Samsung Galaxy A50 is powered by a Exynos 9610 Octa (10nm) CPU processor with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB ROM.

Galaxy A50 comes with high-tech biometric authentication. The on-screen fingerprint reader recognizes the user’s unique fingerprint for pressing and unlocking in one easy move. Besides that, with face recognition alongside Samsung's Secure folder, expect a secure and safe mobile experience. As it is a Samsung smartphone, it comes with its own software suite, which is the One UI. One UI helps users to focus on what really matters to them. Hardware and software work together, with content and features at their fingertips so they can get them faster. Use Night Mode for a comfortable experience in the dark. With clear and intuitive visuals using the phone is like second nature. A 4,000 mAh battery powers through the day. So, users can stream, share, and game. And if users went a little too hard, they can just use the Galaxy A50's quick 15W Fast Charging to get their phone recharged quickly. As a conclusion, the Galaxy A50 is a very good choice for users on a budget who like Samsung's UI. Great camera and display make it a strong competitor among other devices at the same price range.
