  • Enough

    I payed 279 euros for this phone (about 325 US dollars) which is a kinda ok for the performance you get from it. I never filled up my ROM (which is expandable up to 1TB with SD memory if I remember correctly), so that's ok too. It weights a little too much in my opinion, but I got along with it. The camera itself takes quality picture but would have been better if I could manage more my shots (right now 26/09/2020 - Android 10, July patch, using "pro" mode you can only change the ISO, white-balance and exposure. The audio is enough as well. Sometimes I hear some stutters while listening to Spotify, but I don't know if it's the phone, jack of the earphones or the app. The overall performance are kinda weird: sometimes there are microstutters even on Chrome or on the UI itself. If you buy this phone, don't expect great gaming performance or similar. I think there are better option for that prices, so...

  • Great screen for its price

    The screen is perhaps the best part of this phone. All the colors are vibrant and can go very bright under the sun. I think I've only had this phone for about 3 months, but that time alone is enough for the Exynos to slow itself. In the 3rd month, the month where I finally played heavy games such as CoD: Mobile and PUBG, it's so laggy and the performance was definitely not for it. The interface was also getting heavier, everything that was so smooth now stutters generally. It still only stutters and not yet to the point where it just stops responding, but keep in mind this is only in its 3rd month. I can only recommend this phone if you only use it for social media, including selfies and casual photography. If you'd like better photography experience, get a pixel instead. Even with the great screen, I can't recommend this phone for media use because the single bottom-firing speaker was not good enough.

  • Good Mid-Range Contender - But A70 looms

    Great phone all-round. Keep it safe, dry and dust-free and you have a daily driver that can do it all. In my opinion, I'd much rather spend the extra few bucks and get the A70. But there is nothing wrong with this phone.

    Absolutely amazing phone at first the design is really simple and very clean i like it, for the camera as I'm the mobile photographer I must said this camera and the features were made me speechless i like the optimisation scene and the refining features

    Then the battery is very great for thin phone like A50 can use for 14hours if we keeps the phone is on and 6hours playing PUBG Non-Stop

    The most i like is the samsung services like Bixby Voice, Bixby Vision, Bixby, Samsung Health, Samsung Members, Galaxy Theme, and the Whatsapp online Services From Officially samsung

    The software update is really great Im always get usefull update like the camera more stabilization code, Fingerprint work very well, battery Algorythm, And Many more updates always comes after a month

    The one I little bit sad is there no NFC

    For a midrange smartphone is really god,With a 4000mhA battery you can use this phone a entire day.

Ki Price/Quality

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
