Consumer review of the mid-range Android smartphone Samsung Galaxy A50
|Samsung Galaxy A50 consumer review|
Samsung Galaxy A50 turned into one of the most popular mid-range smartphones for 2019. That is thanks to its good looks and build quality, adequate specifications and a very reasonable price.
For the time we have been using and testing the Galaxy A50 we can point out couple of its key features and why it turned into such a best seller:
To be honest, it has been a real pleasure using the Samsung A50 smartphone during the last couple of months.
We only found it to be annoying when first trying to setup the in-display fingerprint reader.
Thankfully heard the consumers' complaints and released a fingerprint software update shortly after we bought the phone. You can find out more about this problem in one of our previous posts: Samsung's in-display fingerprint scanner not working.
Our long term Samsung A50 video review
The triple rear camera of the A50 does a great job, especially if we consider the price of around $300. The ultra-wide lens is rated at 8MP and together with the 5MP depth sensor help the main camera (25MP) make some of the best photos in this price range.

Generally, we were more than happy with the performance of the triple camera. The front-facing camera is great for selfies but unfortunately there's no longer front flash support, so you may need to use the display light for low-light conditions.
The 4000 mAh battery of the A50 performs also on a very good level. We found it to be adequate for about a day of active use. With limited connectivity options (Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS mostly turned off) you can easily go through 1-2 days.
We also made an experiment to minimize the screen brightness and we found the battery to be good for some 3-4 days. So, as you can guess the bright display is the biggest consumer around here.
We strongly recommend using the Samsung A50 smartphone with protective case and screen protector, even though it has the corning Gorilla glass.
We managed to crack our screen protector in less than couple of weeks, so without it that would be it for the gorgeous AMOLED display.
