TJM, 09 Dec 2019I bought the S8 for €370 last year and the MSRP for the A50 is €349 so I can actually compare them.I finally sold my A50 cause of WiFi issues which was bothering me for a while, I tried everything but nothing worked. Finally bought Samsung Note 8 (256 GB) for $330 & can't be more happy, got the December update straight away, this phone is still a beast in 2019, the camera and built quality is top notch.
TJM, 09 Dec 2019I bought the S8 for €370 last year and the MSRP for the A50 is €349 so I can actually compare them.I dont know where you live that S8's price is almost as same as A50 but in my country there was a big gap in price when S8 was anounced between them (( A50 this year and S8 for 2017))
But your comparison is completely wrong dude .
Nowhere in the word compare flagshipers with midrangers .

S series are flagshipers but A's are midrangers.
But camera is doing so good for me and im almost satisfied .
Dont compare A50 cam with S8 , S8 is much better but A50 cam is ok .
Battery is so good and will meet your needs whole day and wont let you down at all .
There was a bug in fps which seems to be fixed in the last update .
As i updated to December it is fixed and i can do register my fp again .
And for the last thing you have swhiched to a midranger from a flagshiper so dont expect anything especial.

I don't care about the camera on a smartphone but this is pretty bad. Worse than my S8, and that phone is over two years old (yes I do compare an old flagship to a new midranger in some aspects)
The screen is pretty good but I have a weird bug with my lockscreen wallpaper, to this date... It is distorted at low brightness and no fix at all...
The speaker is just awful and even the S8, which also has a single speaker, sounds way better.
The battery life is awesome but that is not enough to save such an overpriced and unfinished phone.
I've had a couple of system crashes aswell, or UI crashes. The latest crash was with the latest december patch.
I had bought this phone a couple of month ago and had to return it because of the terrible fingerprint scanner. After Samsung "fixed" the issues I bought it again. It was still bad, but much better than before. And with the december patch they finally crippled this device beyond believe.
It shows that buying A-series over S-series is not such a good Idea. When the S-series gets atleast 4000mAh batteries and a properly working fingerprint or unlock system, I would buy one and keep it for 3 years with one or two battery swaps.
In the end I decided to go back to my S8 till the S12 series come out or till the S11 series are a little cheaper and make use of a better fingerprint sensor...
Camera worst....check zooming and take picture...it will be blurr.
Worst Camera ever seen.

Amirboli, 03 Dec 2019Just open your eyes and read the article more carefully . It is fixed so try not to bash A50.... moreIt is not fixed. I have the A50 and just applied the new update yesterday and since then my fingerprint scanner can hardly read my prints. Definitely can not register new prints with my screen protector on, as before the update I could. In all actuality there was about a good 3 to 4 weeks these past couple of weeks that my fingerptint scanner worked the best it ever had since I got the phone. Now it seems like I'm having the same problem with the December update that everyone had with the November update.
Amirboli, 07 Dec 2019Now it works , doesnt it ?????No I got errors with the third fingerprint...
TJM, 06 Dec 2019For some reason I can register fingerprints again, without an error.Now it works , doesnt it ?????
I have actually found a workaround for the terrible fingerprint scanner.
I opened my closet, took my old Galaxy S8 and put my sim card in it. Now I can use my fingerprints again.
I know it's totally crazy but give it a try.
PartTimePhoner, 05 Dec 2019He was talking about his experience with the UI and yeah obviously s8 starts going down after ... moreBut the S8 & the Note 8 have superior chipsets & cameras compared to the A series even after the future updates.
TJM, 06 Dec 2019For some reason I can register fingerprints again, without an error.Nevermind, I got the same error 3 times in a row trying to register my right thumb for the third time...
