Construction, set, quality of assembly
Samsung Galaxy A50 arrives in an aesthetical box, in which, besides the phone, we can find a 15-watt charger, USB cable and earphones. They have a nice sound, but in my opinion, they are not that comfortable. They have a rather large size, but they lack softer elements, that is why they do not lie in ears that good and during more dynamic movements they can jump out of our ears.
Still – they are nice for a start, later on it is best to replace them with something better. And I will already mention about one of the biggest advantages of this phone – it has a minijack!
Another major advantage of Samsung Galaxy A50 is its stylization. The phone – though it has a housing made out of plastic – looks really nice. The supporting frame imitates metal well, and the back panel – glass. Used materials contribute to the fact that the smartphone is lighter and nicer in touch. However, I must assess the durability of the housing a bit lower.
The back holds its ground, contrary to what you might think it is not susceptible to scratches. The shinning lacquer of the frame is durable too – but in my device, due to a fall, a small chip fell off in the vicinity of the speaker. I think that I should be happy, because the display was not damaged and the phone works without any problems until this day.
It is difficult to call them disadvantages or flaws, but I will underline that Galaxy A50 is not waterproof and it does not support a wireless charging, though with plastic backs it just begs for this. I really enjoy how comfortably the phone lies in hands.
This is mostly due to reasonable sizes of the housing, its profile and slimness, balance and the feel of lightweight of the smartphone – but this is just one these hard to assess features, which decide about our positive attitude towards the device.
Ergonomics – is impeccable, and if you would like to ask what I like in A50’s housing the least – it will be the camera’s frame that stands above. The fact, it only stands above slightly, I did not manage to scratch it yet, and the phone placed on a surface of a table does not wobble at all – but still, I would prefer for the lenses to be hidden in the housing.
And what is where? I will tell you. Buttons are on the right side, the tray for cards – on the left. At the top there is the secondary microphone, while at the bottom we can find both sockets, another microphone and the single speaker.
