Our Samsung Galaxy A50 Review

An impressively large screen, a nifty triple camera, and a processor that packs a punch offer much in the way of the modern phone consumer, be it one who wants to take panoramic snaps to share across their social media accounts or the avid mobile gamer. The A50 accommodates all, and does so without a hefty price tag.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Display

The A50 boasts 6.4 inch display AMOLED display that is surprisingly vibrant, and with a 91.6% screen-to-body ratio you can view and stream media on an impressive screen without shelling out for an S9.

On top of that, Samsung’s signature Infinity-U display seems to be standard issue for its phones since the S8 debuted it in 2017, so a bezel-free phone means optimised viewing for binging content (or whatever viewing activities your typical day demands).

Samsung Galaxy A50: Camera

The capabilities of the triple camera arrangement are varied, and allow users to capture a variety of photo styles.

The main camera lens boasts 25MP and a f/1.7 aperture, alongside a 5MP lens that smartly adjusts its depth of field, and an ultra wide 8MP camera that offers a 123-degree field of vision.

In simpler terms, the triple camera feature means that users can capture just about anything from portrait style photos to sweeping mountain landscapes.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Design

Phones have become noticeably more slick in the last few years, and even as a mid-range model the A50 is no exception to this 

One of the first things that people tend to notice when they first pick up an A50 is the distinct pearly sheen on the back and the lightness of the phone. Thanks to its predominantly plastic chassis — or what Samsung have dubbed as ‘glasstic’ — the A50 weighs a mere 166 grams.

The lightness of the phone doesn’t sacrifice its durability though, as the glass screen is tempered with scratch-resistant CorningⓇ GorillaⓇ Glass.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Performance

The Exynos 9610 chipset, which has an octa-core CPU, keeps the phone running smoothly for day-to-day use. Even when running games with high graphics, the A50 holds up well and the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU offers plenty in the way of gaming graphics.

In terms of RAM, the A50 starts with 4GB and 64GB of internal storage, or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. If you want to expand said storage, then you can easily get it up to 512GB.

As for battery life, a modest 4000mAh can more than endure a day’s worth of use; this would include streaming music, browsing social media, and maybe a little gaming.

15W fast charging is also supported with this model.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Features

Taller screens pose a challenge to one-handed usage, so Samsung’s OneUI interface has catered to this by placing applications and notifications closer to the bottom of the screen.

If you swipe left on the home screen or hold down the power button then Bixby is on-hand to help. Some users prefer this to a dedicated Bixby button that is included on some Samsung models like the S9 and S9+.

How much is the Samsung Galaxy A50?

If you’re intending to buy the phone outright, then it’s just a little over £300 to get it SIM free.

However, if you don’t have a few hundred quid to throw at getting a new phone, then you get a standard contract from upwards of £20/month without upfront costs (which includes unlimited texts and minutes).

Samsung Galaxy A50: Our Verdict   

No phone is perfect, and while more high spec S Series phones like the S9 will certainly boast comparably sharper features, the A50 certainly has nothing to be ashamed of and it can definitely hold its own.

The A50 is a sturdy phone that’s armed with an eye-catching design, a fantastically crisp display, a multi-functioned camera, and it has plenty of other features that will please nearly every brand of phone user.
