And what at the front? A 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution, surrounded by a rather narrow bezel, thanks to which is takes a decent 85% of the front panel. This panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which – though not the newest one, are still used due to its high resistance to scratches.
In the display – according to the current fashion – there is a small notch – but its presence does not make problems with showing information on the upper bar. Of course it slightly limits the presence of showed notifications – but at least we can see a few last ones.
The quality of image is perfect. The display is clear and shows eye-pleasant, intensive colours. However, if you like them a bit toned down – in the software we can find options thanks to which we can adjust the colours temperature to our needs (with a separate control of RGB colours). There is the blue light filter as well – with controlling the intensity and the possibility to set its work to automatic. We can switch the interface to the night mode – with darker image.
I enjoyed it so much that I decided to switch it on for the whole time. Brightness levels are absolutely impeccable, both the maximum and the minimum level are adjusted perfectly. I have no concerns towards using the phone with glasses with polarizing filters. The smartphone is equipped with the Always on Display. It is necessary, because it does not have a notifications LED. AoD can be widely personalized – for example by changing the looks of the clock or by adding, for example, a control for the music player.
I complemented a lot, it is time to complain. In Galaxy A50 we can find the effective, fashionable fingerprint scanner under the surface of the display. However, the speed and the effectiveness of its work leaves a lot to be desired.
I can forgive its speed of work, but the number of errors really irritates me. The facial recognition system works much better, though this is a simple solution based on the image captured with the front camera.
This is a decent function, but we must remember that using it in the dark can be a bit difficult, even if we will light up our face with the display. I did not manage to deceive the system with a photo (but we must assume that it is possible). We need to have at least one eye open, so the “sleeping person” method will not work. We must remember about removing sunglasses as well – but, as usual, simple corrective lenses do not disturb the work of the unit.
