I am using this for a week. People do talk about overheating issue. Most phone has this issue. and A50 doesn't overheat too much like everyone talking.

Craddan, 21 May 2019It has heating issue better believe such issue ..sometimes it just heat up with just normal us... moreWell I have my doubts,since reviewers including notebookcheck says that the phone heats under heavy load.
Have been using this phone for a month, it's pretty good. Fingerprint scanner is a little slow but after the recent updates this has improved but is still slower than competitors. The phone is beautiful, at least my black version. Battery lasts me a good day. Only complaint is that you cant use bokeh effect for selfie nor rear cam in snapchat yet, they should add it soon, and that you cant use 25mp mode for the camera in snapchat.
Performance is great though i only use it for social media. This is the best phone to me in the 350€ price range.
Again, everybody keeps bitching on the fingerprint scanner but it has improved a lot. Also the face unlock works pretty good so having them both on is my recommendation.
Anonymous, 20 May 2019Which phone should i buy a50, galaxy a7 2017 or honor play? My only concern is battery, heatin... moreA50 is the better one overall. It has the biggest battery (4000mah vs 3750mah and 3600mah), a triple camera setup which has an unique ultra-wide camera (quality isn't very good, though), a capable and efficient chipset and a SuperAMOLED screen. Exynos 9610 is a very good and efficient chipset but Honor Play has Kirin 970, the flagship chipset of last year, has a much better GPU than the other two. (G72MP12 vs G72MP3 and T830MP3) As a result, Honor Play is the better phone for gaming purposes. Where Honor Play falls behind is the screen. If you like IPS panels, this isn't a problem but Samsung phones with sAMOLED panels have considerably less energy consumption and much higher quality in dark colors. A7 2017 isn't ideal for gaming as Exynos 7880 has an outdated GPU and this may cause inconsistent gaming performance on long term. Aside from the mediocre SoC, A7 is a good phone, too. It is cheaper, still very good for multimedia purposes, social media/internet browsing and has a very good battery life. When it comes to camera, A50 has a higher-res sensor (25MP vs 16MP) than the other two but this doesn't mean higher camera quality. In fact, photos and videos take more storage as the resolution increases.

Can any A50 owners verify/ comment if the latest SAMSUNG updates/ firmware have already fixed the HEAT, battery, WIFI, camera, and finger print scanner issues please? I am waiting to buy A50 if SAMSUNG is working to fix the problems all the way. -thanks

Samsung A 50 is really a worst phone because of its heating issue don't waste money on this phone try better phones than this
even samsung service centre is not supporting this phone A50.
i recently visited the samsung service centre for this heating issue they accepted to issue the DO note after 2 days of observation but they said not to buy the phone again
so samsung service itself not satisfied with this phone
so people dont waste money on this try better phones than this
i really like samsung phones but this is first time i got disappointed .
mohaded, 21 May 2019help me what i choose between : SAMSUNG A50 & HONOR 8X A50 and honor 8x are similar, but A50 has better cameras, a bit stronger processor, USB C port instead of micro USB, and the fancy sAMOLED display.
So in my opinion get A50.
