Samsung Galaxy A50: Design

The Samsung Galaxy A50 is the most affordable smartphone from the South Korean tech company with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The smartphone has a plastic unibody design which mimics glass and offers a premium look. However, the device is susceptible to scratches under day to day conditions and it can be prevented using a plastic case. At the front, the device has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, protected by a 2.5D curved tempered glass. The smartphone comes with an Infinity-U notch with a higher screen to body ratio.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Hardware Performance

The Samsung Galaxy A50 is powered by the Exynos 9610 octa-core processor with 4/6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for additional storage expansion. This is a mid-tier chipset from Samsung, capable of handling day to day tasks. When it comes to graphics-intensive games like PUBG, the device struggles a bit especially if played with the highest graphics settings. Under the normal day to day conditions, the smartphone should offer smoother overall performance without any issue.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Camera Performance

The Samsung Galaxy A50 has a triple camera setup at the back with a 24MP primary RGB sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. The main camera is capable of recording 1080p videos and slow-motion videos at 720p. Similarly, there is a 25MP selfie camera at the front which also supports 1080p video recording and Face Unlock. Under normal scenarios with enough lighting, the primary camera can take pictures with a good amount of details and less noise. However, when it comes to low-light photography, the device struggles a bit and the images might look noisy.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Price To Performance Ratio

The Samsung Galaxy A50 retails in India for Rs. 18,490 for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. For the asking price, the device offers an interesting set of features, including an FHD+ AMOLED display, in-display fingerprint sensor, triple camera setup and more. The device also runs on the latest version of Android 9 Pie with One UI skin on top. The overall user experience on the Samsung Galaxy A50 is similar to the high-end flagship smartphones from the company.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Important Features/Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy A50 comes with a 4000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging via USB Type-C port. The device also has a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack. Besides, the phone comes with Widevine L1 certification and supports HD streaming on platforms like Prime Videos and Netflix. As the Samsung Galaxy A50 has an AMOLED display, the device works well for watching movies and tv shows. The microSD card slot is also an added feature for those who like to store a lot of content on their device.

Samsung Galaxy A50: Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A50 is one of the best mid-tier smartphones from the company that takes a hint from the Chinese smartphone brands. The Galaxy A50 looks premium, offers some of the best features which are generally reserved for high-end smartphones and also has a brand name. If you are looking for a smartphone that offers trendsetting features, which is also priced reasonably from a well-established brand, then, the Samsung Galaxy A50 could be the device that you should consider.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
