Samsung needs to build a coherent mid-range segment because the competition has largely invested in this sector, dominated by the giant Huawei in particular, joined in recent years by Xiaomi. The Galaxy A50 holds great promise in this regard.

The design of this mid-range boat is certainly a success, and the only difference with the Galaxy S10 flags is the plastic for the hull, which is very bright and takes fingerprints like glass. On the front, optimization is required with a very small notch and a smartphone which, despite its dimensions, can be used with only one (large) hand, with a good overall grip. If the fingerprint reader is under the screen, it is also capricious and it takes a long time to register its fingerprint. For the rest, the Galaxy A50 has everything you need, including a USB-c port and a mini-jack socket.

The display of this Galaxy A50, with a diagonal of 6.4 inches and very elongated (19.5:9 format), is as always very successful at Samsung. You have to go through the settings to enjoy optimal color rendering, but for the rest there's nothing wrong with infinite contrast, and brightness that will make you feel comfortable in all environments, without annoying reflections in particular. Finally, the resolution is of good level, and the 2340 by 1080 pixels are there to allow a long consultation without eye fatigue.

If the mini-jack gave a certain hope, disappointment is to be found in listening, with a very confusing audio scene that is not very pleasant to the ears. The loudspeaker limits the breakage a little and is generally correct.

The performances are quite correct and it is rare to damage this powerful smartphone, which nevertheless has the defect of sometimes heating a little too much at the level of the photo sensors, but nothing too disabling. For games, the Galaxy A50 is able to run almost all games to their maximum without showing any weakness.

This smartphone uses three sensors to produce photos and meet all needs, including wide angle and correct depth of field. The main sensor displays 25 million pixels, but its rendering seems obscured, as if the processing was exaggerated. The colours come out pastel or not far away, but the realism and fidelity of the colours is there, even in the dark. The wide angle sensor is quite effective, especially at this price level, but producing a portrait is a little complicated and it is difficult to focus on the subject. The problem is also found on the sensor on the front panel for selfies, proof that the problem is also software. For video, nothing to say, with the addition of a square format for Instagram, but the optical stabilization of the Galaxy S10 is missing (quite logically).

Autonomy level, the Galaxy A50 manages with honours, or even better since it reaches the two days without concessions or almost, and is of better quality in the field than the nearest competition.
