Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A50s

60% Samsung Galaxy A50s review: A better Galaxy A50?
Source: The Indian Express English
The Samsung Galaxy A50s is not a bad phone. The camera is pleasing, the battery life is good enough, and this is an excellent AMOLED display. The performance is good enough for regular usage, but it does struggle if you are those who do a lot of heavy gaming. For the Galaxy A50s, competition like Redmi K20, Nokia 7.2 will make it harder to stand out.

79% Review – Samsung Galaxy A50s

Overall, for RM1,299, the Galaxy A50s has a higher price tag compared to other mid-range smartphones in the market, but it offers a better software experience and ecosystem compared to other brands.

73% Samsung Galaxy A50S Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Samsung Galaxy A50s isn’t the best performer in the upper mid-range segment, but if you are looking for a phone that looks good and handy to use, the A50s is a good option to consider. It also comes with a reliable camera system. The primary 48MP camera is optimised to shoot well-detailed, vibrant images in the day, but not much useful once the sun sets. OneUI based on Android 9 also goes a long way in making the Galaxy A50s highly usable with a lot of features borrowed from the flagship S-series, but keep in mind that if gaming is what you are after in a phone, this is not the best option.

80% Samsung Galaxy A50s Review: “A” Bestseller Gets Better
Source: Tech PP English
The A50s slips very neatly into the Rs 20,000-25,000 price segment where there is actually very limited competition (the Redmi K20 is the only significant new device there). Given its performance and pricing, and, of course, its considerable brand equity, Samsung could have another bestseller on its hands here.

Samsung Galaxy A50s is a fairly good effort by smartphone manufacturer in a segment that is highly competitive. The performance is flawless including gaming. However, we weren’t impressed with the slow fingerprint sensor. Those who love shooting pictures, they are likely to find the device valuable.

70% Samsung Galaxy A50s Review – Refined and Redefined
Source: Hitech Century English
As it stands, the Galaxy A50s is an incremental upgrade of the original A50 with improved front and rear cameras and modest firmware updates that offer more flagship type features. It’s a solid all-rounder, with a good Super AMOLED display, decent overall performance and an otherwise good set of cameras for day-to-day use though at this competitive price category it’s a bit on the pricey side. That extra premium however goes towards the polish and deep integration of the Galaxy A50’s myriad user interface and design including Samsung Pay that other brands have yet to match.

75% Samsung Galaxy A50s review: Good upgrade but still similar to Galaxy A50
Source: India Today English
On its own, the Galaxy A50s is a pretty attractive phone, but largely similar to the Galaxy A50. It comes with a sleek and lightweight design and a stunning AMOLED display, much like its predecessor. The performance is good enough for day-to-day usage and it delivers a full day battery life as well. Cameras have been upgraded and are better compared to the Galaxy A50. That being said, I feel the upgrades are not drastic enough from the Galaxy A50.

Samsung Galaxy A50s Review – Back to Square One
Source: Manila Shaker English
For a small price bump, you’re also getting a small spec bump. While there’s nothing wrong with the Galaxy A50s, we feel like this could’ve been the Galaxy A50 in the first place. Now that Realme 5 Pro and Redmi Note 8 Pro are on the market and have way cheaper price tags, this makes the A50s hard to recommend. Samsung is now back to square one when it comes to its mid-range smartphones.

Samsung Galaxy A50s Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Samsung Galaxy A50s is a decent smartphone for the starting price of ₹22,999. It features good-looking design, packs a decent set of internals and offers a good battery life. However, the phone lacks behind in crucial departments for its asking price — camera and performance. The Galaxy A50s is a good effort from the South Korean giant but it still is not the answer against Chinese offerings. Compared to this, the Realme XT, Xiaomi Redmi K20, and the Vivo Z1x seem better, both in terms of specs and pricing. However, if you are interested in buying Galaxy A50s, you can purchase it through Flipkart.

Samsung Galaxy A50s hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Galaxy A50s seems like a reasonable mid-range smartphone on paper. It has almost everything one could want, including a multi-camera setup on the back, a relatively high-resolution AMOLED display, decent storage options, and a sizable battery capacity. It even has a headphone jack.

Samsung Galaxy A50s review: Great looks and design, performs well too
Source: Business Standard English
The Galaxy A50s with 4,000mAh battery, 48MP main shooter, and the price tag of Rs 24,999 for 6GB + 128GB version (Rs 22, 999 for 4GB + 128GB) is a considerable offering in the mid-range segment but faces a tough competition from rivals. The smartphone looks impressive, and scores well on several parameters, especially performance. The camera may not impress too much, but does a fine job otherwise. Overall, we had a good experience with the phone.

80% Samsung Galaxy A50s Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
As far as specifications and the overall usage experience go, there isn't much difference at all between the Galaxy A50s and its predecessor, the Galaxy A50 (Review). There's nothing groundbreaking here, and nothing that really stands out for a sub-Rs. 25,000 phone today. That said, everything works well enough, and both the hardware and software feel highly polished.

Samsung Galaxy A50s Review
Source: Yugatech English
Overall, the A50s is solid mid-ranger with a bright display, modest battery life, the latest One UI, and better camera hardware. The chipset benchmarks gave us mixed results, and there were a couple of frame drops during gaming, but apart from that, we think it’s a decent upgrade from the A50. Samsung has the A50s priced at PHP 18,990, which is just a couple of thousand pesos more than its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy A30S and Galaxy A50S brings triple cameras and slick design to Malaysia
Source: Hitech Century English
Externally, the Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s look quite similar to each other with a design that’s almost a spitting image of each other including a nigh identically sized 6.4-inch display but they vary substantially in almost every detail with the Galaxy A50s packing better hardware. In general, both phones also notably come with under-display fingerprint readers, triple rear camera arrays, 15W fast charging, 4,000mAh sized batteries and Samsung Pay support.

Samsung Galaxy A50s First Impressions: Can it Crush the competition with its design?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Samsung Galaxy A50s is probably one of the most 'hatke' designed smartphones from Samsung. Some might instantly feel attracted to its design and some might be confused with it. The display to the point, though the camera performance in low light seems to be an issue here. Overall, if you ask for the competition, it will go against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi K20, Vivo V15 Pro and more.

At a starting price of Rs. 22,999, the Galaxy A50s goes head-on with some well-received phones such as Redmi K20 (Review), Poco F1 (Review), and the Vivo V15 Pro (Review), to name a few. The overall package is a little underwhelming for the asking price, but we'll reserve the final verdict for our review as we extensively test the cameras, day-to-day performance, and battery life.
