Design and build
First this smartphone weighs about 169 grams and it is 7.7mm thick. This is a slim smartphone as you can see, and the slimmer the sleeker- that’s a phone saying. The front panel is neat thanks to that dew drop notch and though slim, noticeable bottom bezel.
It has the volume rocker and power button on one side of its plastic frames. The phone’s build itself is plastic dear reader, no glass no metal- just plastic. The back panel has the triple lens setup on the top left corner with an LED flash below it. You will also see Samsung branding on the back. Do no trouble yourself locating the rear mounted fingerprint scanner since it is embedded under the display. Speaking of display.
Samsung Galaxy A50s’s display panel has the below listed features.
It is a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen. AMOLED panels are best known for their deep darks and good brightness in outdoor conditions. With its acute viewing angles you can rarely go wrong with these types of panels dear reader. It will be worth the cost
It is 6.4 inches panel that covers an area of 100.5cm2 with a 85.1% screen to body ratio- neat. Resolution on the other hand is above standard at 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution (403 ppi density).
Most smartphones with good displays have equally good camera performance. This is a general assumption that can be affirmed by the Galaxy A50s.
The primary camera is made up of thee lenses. The main lens being a 48MP (wide), the other an 8MP (ultra wide lens) and lastly there is the 5MP depth sensor. Here is some information you will love. 2160p@30fps video recording, that is 4K, is the video quality you get with this smartphone.
Its 32MP, HDR selfie shooter is one of the best you will get in the market at its price range. With it you shall get 1080p@30fps video recording. I think this is descent.
