- Good battery
- Super AMOLED display
- Camera could have been better
Samsung Galaxy A50 was launched in March 2019 & runs on Android 9.0 OS. The Smartphone is available in more than three colour options i.e. Black, White, Blue, Coral & has a built-in fingerprint sensor as the primary security feature, along with the host of connectivity options in terms of 3G, 4G, GPS, WIFI Bluetooth capabilities.
The Galaxy A50 is obviously positioned between the lower-tier of As with HD AMOLEDs and less-impressive snappers, and the higher-tier A70 and A80 with larger screens, more powerful chips, and even more premium snappers. And that’s exactly what makes it so special – having the best from both worlds – cool specs on a lower price.
The phone comes with Infinity-U SuperAMOLED screen that just looks fabulous. It has a full HD+ resolution with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The screen is bright, vibrant and seems well calibrated. With deep blacks and good viewing angles, everything looks good on the screen, be it indoors or outdoors.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 does boast of a lot of photography features, staring with the triple-camera module on the rear. The primary camera has a 25-megapixel sensor and f/1.7 aperture; the secondary camera is for wide shots and has an 8-megapixel sensor with a 123-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture; and the third one is a standard 5-megapixel depth sensor. The single front-facing camera has a 25-megpixel sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
Samsung also touts a Live Focus mode for portraits, a 480fps 720p slow-motion video mode, Hyper-Lapse mode for time-lapse videos, AR emojis, and intelligent scene optimisation. The Pro mode is disappointing with only metering, ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation controls. You can switch between the standard and wide-angle cameras before you begin shooting videos, but not while recording.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 is driven by an Exynos 9610 chipset. Samsung’s in-house developed chip is based on 10nm FinFET process and comprises octa-cores divided into two quad-core clusters. While one cluster has Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, the other cluster has all Cortex-A53 CPUs ticking at 1.7GHz. The chipset is coupled with Mali G72MP3 GPU to meet your graphics requirement.
It packs a 4,000mAh battery that supports fast charging. And it provides some really great usage experience and for those who are a heavy user would not be disappointed with it.
The phone now has received a price cut and is now offered at 18,500. This is an complete device. Ultra-wide camera, big battery, fast charging, SuperAMOLED display. But for those who are looking for extreme gaming should go for POCO F1 as it offers SD845. This device is more than the previous A30 and all and is below A70 and this is what it makes it a great option at this price point.
