Samsung A50 Pros
Here are some reasons you might like the Samsung Galaxy A50.
1.) Gaming-friendly & Speedy Performance
Rather than the Qualcomm processor found in most Android devices, A50 is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9610 10nm processor alongside 4GB of RAM and an expandable 64GB of internal storage, all of which provides a swift and hitch-free mobile experience.
Although the Exynos 9610 processor is not as powerful as the one found in pricier devices like Snapdragon 675 or Snapdragon 710, but the plain truth is that this chipset is very effective in loading multiple apps without lagging or hanging.
That is, you can play graphically-demanding games, such as PUBG for hours without your smartphone hanging or getting extremely hot [even on the highest graphical settings possible].
As earlier mentioned, the Samsung A50 sports a 4GB of RAM, which allows you to load and switch between multiple apps without noticing any delay or glitches on your device.
The huge RAM also ensures that your phone loads numerous apps and games in a quick and smooth manner. This is indeed value for money!
Another strong point of this device is that it runs on brand new One UI, which is far better than the traditional Experience UI.

The new One UI allows for better customization and optimization when compared to the traditional Samsung Experience UI and it also comes with myriads of new gestures, such as swipe up at the bottom right for going back, swipe up at bottom left to open recent apps, swipe up at the bottom middle for home screen.
2.) Dependable Battery Life
Battery capacity is one of the key factors never to be joked with when choosing a phone to buy. The bigger the figure the longer you will enjoy your device after each full charge.
Fortunately, Galaxy A50 comes with a 4,000mAh Li-Po battery, which of course is a step down from the larger 5,000mAh type on the Galaxy M30.
With that aside, the battery that comes with the Galaxy A50 is enough to last you a full day of use – calls, gaming, chatting, online streaming, capturing photos, etc. – making it a good phone for both basic and heavy users.
More importantly, it will please you to know that this device also supports 15W quick charge, which means you will be able to charge your device from 0 to 100% in less than 2 hours. Special thanks to the USB Type-C port it is equipped with.
That being said, if you are looking for smartphones with wireless charging, you can’t find such on the Samsung A50. Go for supported devices instead.
3.) Good Camera Setup
Galaxy A50 is an ideal smartphone for picture-freaks and photography gurus.
The device sports a triple camera setup that includes a primary 25MP f/1.7 aperture PDAF enabled camera, secondary 8MP fixed focus f/2.2 aperture ultra wide angle camera, and a third 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor.
The 25MP rear camera has a focal length of 27mm while that of the secondary camera is 17mm and can capture an image of 120 degree field view.
With the above camera combination, you can easily capture breathtaking pictures and decent selfies on your device and rest assured you will get excellent detail, well balanced colors, as well as great contrast – even in low light situations.
That aside, it is equally important to make it known to you that the camera on Galaxy A50 does not have optical image stabilization and may find it difficult to capture fast-moving objects at times.
This means you need to stay as still as possible for your photography to appear balanced and non-shaky.
4.) Attractive Design & Solid Build
This device has a sleek and admirable design.
Similar to the Galaxy M30, the back of this device is made of plastic that looks like glass but feels cheap to the touch while the central frame is made of metal and this keep the overall weight of the device down to just 166 grams while the thickness is also 7.7mm.
With that being said, it is equally important to note that this device can be slippery at times due to its structure, and also it might not be comfortable to hold for people with small hands.
On the other hand, one of the things that will impress you in the Galaxy A50 is the fact that the device is mostly plastic except for the front screen.
You may not even know that the back of the device is made from plastic rather than some other premium materials. Also, the front screen is equipped with an additional layer of Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent it from scratches and scuff marks.
Additionally, you might also be pleased to know that button placement on the Samsung Galaxy A50 are made with the users in mind.
To start with, the power and volume rocker sits on the right edge while the bottom edge is occupied by a USB Type-C charging port, a headphone jack, as well as a speaker grille.
Again, on the left side of this device are the dual nano-SIM card slots and a dedicated microSD card slot for inserting your SIM and external memory cards.
If you are smart enough, you might have noticed that there is no fingerprint reader at the back of this device.
This is so because the manufacturer decided to use an optical in-display fingerprint scanner rather than the regular scanners.
However, the major drawback of optical in-display fingerprints scanner is that it is unreliable when, especially when compared with face unlock and other related biometric options.
5.) Sharp, Crisp Display
It sports a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen panel that looks huge and beautiful.
The display has a Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution, a pixel ratio density of 404 ppi and 19.5:9 aspect ratio – all of which ensures bright display, vibrant colors, excellent contrast and saturation.
On the front of this device, is a U-shaped notch, which allows a screen-
to-body ratio of 91.6%, and thus improving the overall visual experience delivered by the Galaxy A50.
This simply means you will be able to view a wide variety of graphical contents like videos, pictures, etc. on this device with great brightness and superb contrast.
That being said, it is equally important to point it out that some customers complained that the device’s auto-brightness feature keep re-activating itself despite disabling it from the settings menu.
We believe this could be fixed via a software update though.
