Welcome. I decided to devote today’s to two Samsung smartphones, namely the Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A50 models.
The dimensions of smartphones and the arrangement of elements on the case are identical, so they’re easy to confuse.
Samsung Galaxy A50s has a plastic case. A frameless display with a slight indentation from the bottom covers almost the entire front side of the smartphone. At the bottom of it is a fingerprint scanner. At the top of the display is a tear drop-shaped cutout for the front camera and face recognition sensors. On the right of the case are the volume and power buttons, and on the left is a slot for a memory card and two Nano-format SIM cards. At the bottom are a USB-C connector, speaker and microphone, as well as a 3.5 mm headphone input.
Samsung Galaxy A50 has the same bezel-less screen and built-in fingerprint scanner. The screen itself has a protective glass, Gorilla Glass 3. The arrangement of elements on the case is identical to that in the model galaxy A50S. On the left is a slot for two Nano SIM cards and a memory card. On the right are the buttons for turning on the smartphone and adjusting the volume. Below are the speaker, microphone, 3.5 mm headphone input, and a USB-C connector.
But on the back of smartphones, there are some differences.
The back of the Samsung Galaxy A50s is made of plastic that simulates glass. It has an interesting geometric pattern with different levels of reflectivity, and shimmers beautifully in the light. The smartphone can be purchased in black, white, purple and green. On the back of the case is a vertical camera module with flash and the brand name.
As for the back surface of the Samsung Galaxy A50, its also made of plastic that simulates a glass coating. Here, there is a vertical module with three cameras and a flash. The surface is devoid of any patterns and geometric shapes, like the one used in the Galaxy A50S, but in certain colors, it has a beautiful glossy shade. You can buy it in blue, black, white or coral.
Samsung Galaxy A50s has a bright Super AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 6.4 inches and a resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels. The image on the screen is clear, rich, with deep black color and maximum viewing angles. On the display, any images and text look great, regardless of lighting. In the settings of the smartphone there are many settings to adjust the brightness and color temperature.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 uses the same 6.4-inch screen with a Super AMOLED matrix and a resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels.
Both smartphones are based on the Android 9 Pie operating system with the proprietary One UI shell. A feature of this shell for smartphones with a large display is that the main part of the functional interface elements of this shell are located at the bottom of the screen, and a place on top is reserved for the headings and their contents. One UI has a night mode that looks great on an AMOLED screen. This shell adheres to its own style, which is based on rounded blocks and icons. Users can change the location of the navigation buttons or hide them and use gesture control. Also, in the One UI there have been minor changes in the camera application. The interface was slightly modified, but overall became more convenient to use.
The rear photo module of the Samsung Galaxy A50s consists of three cameras, among which, the main one is 48 megapixels. Theres also an 8-megapixel ultra-wide module with a viewing angle of 123 degrees for shooting landscapes, streets and other shots, where coverage is important, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor to create a bokeh effect in portrait shots. The quality of photographs, especially those taken in good lighting, is great. With a decrease in the level of lighting, you can notice a slight loss of detail due to aggressive noise reduction. But overall, the camera does a good job of taking night photos. As for video recording, shooting in 4K resolution with a frequency of 30 frames per second is available.The front camera is 32 megapixels, it allows you to take high-resolution selfies and record video in Full HD.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 has a 25 megapixel camera, which is complemented by an 8 megapixel module with 123 degree wide-angle optics and a 5 megapixel depth sensor. Like the Galaxy A50S, the camera in the Galaxy A50 makes good color reproduction and details pictures in good light. At night, the sharpness of photos falls. Video recording on the Galaxy A50 is in Full HD resolution. The front camera of the smartphone is 25 megapixels. It knows how to take portrait pictures in high resolution and very good quality during the day, but in poor lighting conditions, the quality of photos decreases noticeably.
The Samsung Galaxy A50s has an 8-core Exynos 9611 processor, clocked at 2.3 GHz and a Mali-G72 video accelerator. The smartphone is available in versions of 4 Gigabytes of RAM, 64 or 128 Gigabytes of internal memory. Theres also a version with 6 Gigabytes of RAM and 128 Gigabytes of internal memory. Its possible to install a microSD memory card.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 uses an 8-core Exynos 9610 processor, clocked at 2.3 GHz. The smartphone is available in versions of 4 or 6 gigabytes of RAM, 64 or 128 gigabytes of internal memory, which can be increased by installing a microSD card.
In the AnTuTu Benchmark performance test, the Samsung Galaxy A50s and Samsung Galaxy A50 gain about the same result, a little more than 140 thousand points.
As for the communication capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy A50s and Samsung Galaxy A50, both smartphones support dual-band Wi-Fi, including the AC-standard. The devices use Bluetooth version 5.0. NFC-module is present in both smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy A50s is equipped with a 4000 mAh battery. With active use of the device, its full charge lasts for a whole day. With more gentle operation, the device is able to work for two days without recharging. The phone comes with a quick charge of 15 W, which allows you to fully charge the battery in less than 2 hours. Wireless charging technology is not supported.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 also comes with a 4000 mAh battery. The smartphone supports fast charging technology. The full cycle time of the battery is 1 hour 50 minutes. In the mode of web surfing and watching videos, the battery lasts for half a day, and in talk mode for a day. Galaxy A50 does not have wireless charging.
There are already quite a few reviews on the Samsung Galaxy A50s and Samsung Galaxy A50. I analyzed them and now I will tell you what the owners think about them. I’ll begin, as usual, with the negatives.

So, the Samsung Galaxy A50s and Samsung Galaxy A50 are identical in size, but differ in the pattern of the back cover. Galaxy A50s received a 48-megapixel main camera and a front camera of 32 megapixels, and that pushes the A50s to be our winner today.
