The Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A50 comes with 4GB RAM with 64GB storage variant for Rs 19,990, and 6GB RAM with 64GB at Rs 22,990. For this price, you get a good AMOLED display and battery that lasts longer between charges. The design is new and refreshing, and the performance is exactly what you would expect from a mid-range smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy A50 Pro pros includes Awesome looks, Great display, Impressive battery life, Useful camera features and One UI interface. Whereas the cons include Bloatware, Spammy notifications, Low-light camera performance and Average gaming performance.

This device will face fierce competition from Xiaomi’s Poco F1 which features the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC, 48-megapixel primary camera, Gorilla Glass 5, and other impressive specifications. The Redmi Note 7 Pro has a starting price of Rs. 13,999 and even the higher-end variant at Rs. 16,999 (with 128GB of storage) undercuts Samsung dramatically. Another big competitor to the Samsung Galaxy A50 will be the company’s own Galaxy M30, which has the same screen and a larger battery, but a weaker processor, standard fingerprint sensor, and a less flashy rear panel. If you aren’t too fussed about camera quality, the Galaxy M30 starts for Rs. 5,000 less.

Even with these alternatives in the market, we think a lot of people will find the Galaxy A50 interesting enough to consider seriously. It has all the current-day features that you’d want to show off, and there are no major problems. We think there’s scope for improvement with the cameras and software, but overall, Samsung is really showing that it knows how to bring the fight back.
