Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the Price Point If you've been looking for a great Samsung mid range phone, finally this is it! Honestly, as long as you can sacrifice a few milliseconds of performance, this phone comes jam packed with premium features only found on the S series - for a fraction of the price. My only gripe is that the in screen fingerprint sensor is a bit slow (it is a new technology, after all), but the facial recognition is superb. The screen is big and gorgeous and the interface is user friendly and well optimized for the small camera notch. Battery life is also a winner on this device. All in all, Samsung has really stepped their game up and this is a fantastic phone for those not willing to fork over $1000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone for the price I have been using this phone for almost a year now I can tell you competes and sometimes beats 1200$ phones with it's features such as its VERY large battery, its display, its multiple great cameras, its design, etc. The only things I am disappointed are that it doesn't have is water resistance, and the speakers are not that great. But at this price I can't complain because this is simply the best you can get without emptying your wallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance and features I bought this phone due to its cheap price relative to the flagship S10. It met all my expectations and I even discovered several features which I would only expect to find in the S-series phones. Battery lasts long even with heavy use (GPS, browsing with 3G). The speed is good (all apps open and run smoothly). You might experience slow performance for a few seconds once every week or two as per my experience but that's not something to be worried about. The camera is very good although you need to keep your hands perfectly still to shoot the best possible pictures. Face recognition works well and is pretty fast. Fingerprint scanner may not work properly sometimes but otherwise it's responds well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pros & cons Pros: super fast changing Long battery life Best camera of any phone I've ever used Excellent brightness display Lots of storage ...all features very important to me. Fast Excellent GPS accuracy Cons: cant get screen to stay on during a call without constantly tapping which is extremely frustrating. Display screen does not show how many missed calls at a glance Over heats in warm weather Difficult to find what your looking for in setting Dumps call on occasions Call volume not good Alarm cannot be read aloud without wifi On a few occasions the tap did not respond & other times it is overly sensitive However I am still impressed with this phone. Most of the cons were not ongoing issues & some issues could be due to the fact that I'm still learning to maneuver my way through the settings .but the pros were the main reasons I chose this phone & it meets up to those standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this phone!!!!!! I recently upgraded from my samsung galaxy s4 to the galaxy A50. I had that same galaxy s4 for almost 7 years!! Samsung has very well made phones and that is why I purchased another Samsung. I am very happy with the A50 and the fact that it is possible to put in a 512 GB memory card. Now I can store tons of movies and games on it and enjoy the bright vibrant screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone The samsung galaxy a50 is probably the best phone for 449$, it takes excellent pictures, runs every game at very high graphics with ease. And has a great display and screen size! And i only have one flaw with it. Its not very durable, ive had this phone for about 3 weeks now, but when i ordered a case to put on the phone, when i put the plastic framed screen protector that came with the case on it, a small chunk of plastic was easily scraped off the actual phone. Over all, its a great phone, mediocre durability. Buying a case is reccomended

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Full of gimmicks with mediocre build quality I upgraded from Samsung A5 (2017), the A5 had a flagship build quality in a mid-range phone. With the A50 (2019) a lot of previous amenities were eliminated, such as MST payment, IP68, and a premium glass back. The Canadian version does support NFC but not MST, so it can't replace your wallet entirely. Pros: +OneUI +Depth Sensor +Video Stabilization +Battery Capacity +Performance I'm a huge fan of Samsung's OneUI, it's one of the main reason I stayed with Samsung. The rear depth sensor works perfectly, their algorithm was able to bring flawless live focus to the front camera. Additionally, the video stabilization is fantastic, it's definitely better than my A5 (2017).The battery capacity is great; with 4000mah, it easily last for over a day of usage. The performance is good too, I was able to run multiple apps at once without them closing. To summarize, this is a affordable phone with flag ship gimmicks. Cons: -Low MP wide angle camera -In-display fingerprint sensor -Poor panorama stitching -Plastic back cover After using it for a few days, the triple cameras and in display finger print sensor is only useful as a conversation starter. The ultra wide camera is 8mp, the bad photo quality is hard to justify it's use. The in-display fingerprint sensor is truly annoying, it takes around one second to register and only work 50% of the time (even though I registered the same fingerprint three times). Additionally, the panorama function on the phone is bordering useless, as the software stitching creates a strong globe effect. This never happened on my A5 (2017). Overall, the phone feels very weak with a plastic back cover, I recommend a strong case with screen protector. The legacy A5 (2017) felt like a premium smartphone on the outside, while the A50 (2019) is a strong performer on the inside. At the end, it's still a great mid range phone. It's fantastic for everyday users who doesn't need high quality cameras or IP68.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not indestructible I've had it a few weeks now, and really like it so far. Upgrade for me, from Galaxy J3. Nice camera. Like the previous comments, don't rely too much on the fingerprint scanner. I wonder if it's too sensitive, maybe picking up microscopic dirt, and moisture on the finger that maybe was, or wasn't there when you first register your finger print. The phone/screen, is not indestructible like a popular streaming website video depicts. I watched the video and decided to try using the phone without a screen protector or case. Guess what... it scratches, maybe not as easy as some other devices, but it does. Also noticed my camera glass has a small crack, thankfully not over the lenses. I bought screen protector and case after this.
