    Opinions of the Samsung Galaxy A50

    Opinions of the Samsung Galaxy A50? Also compared to the S9, is the S9 worth the extra cost? Thanks in advance.

    Disregard I'm going with the S9.

    I really nice phone for the money, but I found the inscreen FP reader to be completely worthless. Not just slow, but didn't work 75% of the time for me. Even after adding the finger print several times, etc...

    I got an A50 at a discount on a Samsung program, (for about $100 after a large discount) and even at that price found the signal strength too poor and the voice quality inferior to my current S8, so I just returned it!

    SNR was a couple of dbm lower than the S8 on Sprint band 41.

    Ah I see you updated and I think you made a wise choice.

    you should not even compare it to an s8 or s9 that's like comparing an 1994 Honda to an 2019 bmw

    You would go that far huh!

    Well I resolved to only buy highest-end phones from now on, seeing as you can get them on sale a year or two after release for not all that much more than a new lower-tier phone.

    there's nothing wrong with waiting an year since the price drops when the new model comes out, I got my mother the unlocked s9 for 450 brand new, Also there are phones like one plus or even the pixil 3a which is pretty good

    My dad is using it through the same program and is pretty happy with it. Maybe cuz he came from an lg g5.
    He put a glass protector on so the fingerprint doesn't really work...

    The A50 has an awful camera for the price. It's not even capable of recording 1080 60fps or 4K. Even the Moto G7 Power is capable of that recording and it costs $150 less. Good choice going with the GS9.

    At the price point the A50 is asking for, you would likely see better value getting a Galaxy S8.
