Samsung continues to build momentum for the mainstream mobile market as it reinvents its mid-range lineup. The South Korean company started releasing its budget-wise Galaxy M series, followed by the revamped Galaxy A series. At this point, it’s safe to say that the company has been feeling the need to compete against Xiaomi, Vivo, and Oppo. Currently, the Samsung Galaxy A50 is at the limelight of this effort. Priced at Php17,990, it’s already looking to be the best mid-range phone in 2019 in the Philippines.
Top Reasons To Get The Samsung Galaxy A50
When it comes to the best smartphone display, no one comes close to Samsung panels. Featuring the Super AMOLED display, the Galaxy A50 provides great contrast ratio, vibrant colors, and detailed quality with its FHD+ resolution.
For the past several years, smartphones were plagued with battery problems; not lasting before 5 PM hits the day. But with 4000mAh inside Samsung’s best mid-range phone in 2019, you can even get up to two days of battery life when coupled with smart power management.
Large Expandable Storage
It was only last year when 128GB onboard storage can only be found on top-tier phones. This year, it feels like 64GB isn’t enough. So, we were glad when we saw the Galaxy A50 featuring 128GB storage. But what’s even better is the capability to add up to 512GB of storage via its microSD slot.
Previously exclusive to LG phones, the ultrawide-angle camera has found its way to mid-range phones. Capturing almost twice the field-of-view of a regular sensor, the assisting 8MP ultrawide sensor of the Galaxy A50 lets you capture more (literally). Moreover, you have a 25MP main sensor with 5MP depth sensing lens for accurate bokeh effect.
Oh, did we mention its selfie camera? Samsung’s best mid-range phone packs a large 25MP selfie sensor; capturing crispy selfies, especially in broad daylight.
Powerful Enough To Handle Everything
Meager specs were the Achilles heel of Samsung mid-range phones before. Today, it has become one of its best features. The Exynos 9610 SoC from the Galaxy A50 smoothly handles day-to-day tasks, including EXTREME gaming.
We thought Samsung wasn’t capable of delivering bang-for-the-buck phones. Boy, we were wrong. The company has finally brought a worthy contender in the Galaxy A50; featuring its best price-to-feature ratio yet.
