The Galaxy A50 picks up the gradient style of the M30 and gives it a rather attractive rainbow-like sheen. The phone looks great and will definitely turn heads. Samsung opted to use plastic all around, which helps keep the weight of the phone down to a sprightly 166 grams. The downside, of course, is that the phone is a fingerprint and scuff magnet. The phone will definitely pick up scratches over time and you’ll be well served by a quality case.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 has a 4,000mAh battery which is a step down from the larger 5,000mAh unit on the Galaxy M30. Regardless, the phone still comfortably lasts a full day of use and has a decent amount of charge left over. During my week of use, I consistently had a 30-40 percent charge left over at the end of the day despite long calls, extensive social media use as well music streaming.
