Galaxy A50 Pros
Galaxy A50 Camera
One of the key strength of the Galaxy A50 is its camera. It has a triple camera setup of 25MP primary wide angles lense with F/1.7, 8MP ultra wide camera and 5MP depth sensor.
Though Samsung has not mentioned anything on the video stabilisation, both front and rear camera recorded video footages look smooth. Looks like it has EIS.
Rear 25MP primary camera performance in all light condition look good considering the price segment. Ultra wide angle camera performance in low light is not great. 25MP front facing selfie camera does good job in all light condition.
Galaxy A50 Performance
It is powered by a Octa-core Samsung Exynos 9610 SoC. This chip has four ARM Cortex-A73 and four Cortex A-53 CPU cores running at up to 2.3GHz and 1.6GHz respectively. It also has modern ARM Mali-G72 MP3 GPU.
The performance of the Galaxy A50 is good enough. We have not faced any lagginess or hiccups in day to day usage. Even graphic intensive games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends playable at their highest settings.
Galaxy A50 Battery Life
Samsung Galaxy A50 comes with 4000 mAh battery with fast charging support. With heavy usage it lasted more than a day during our testing period.
Galaxy A50 Cons
Slow in-display fingerprint scanner: The in-display fingerprint scanner is not the one we have seen in the flagship Galaxy S10. Though it is good to have latest technology, it is slower compared to regular finger scanner. Also accuracy also not great.
Average 8MP ultra wide angle camera performance: 8MP ultra wide lens has fixed focus. The low light performance is average.
No 4K video recording: Both front and rear camera video recording is capped at 1080×2340-pixel.
