In the struggle in the budget segment looks like, if not worse, then certainly on a par with the flagship segment.

Every manufacturer strives for available funds to give the maximum of their capabilities. And the bigger the company, the more generous it turns out her offer. Frankly, skepticism about new members of the series Galaxy A destroyed exactly when they are beginning to use devices. But let’s go in order.

Design

From the front both devices are similar. Rounded body smoothly into a 6.4-inch screen Super AMOLED with a high resolution 2340×1080 pixels, and this for a second, 403 ppi.

In the upper part of the screen is a keyhole, it hides the front camera, just above which is the earpiece.

It is worth noting the neat frame and rounding of the protective glass Gorilla Glass 3 on both models. As in the overall market, you can find fault only to the big and empty the bottom part, but in General, it seems a solid device.

If we talk about the faces, here is also a coincidence. At the bottom of the A30 and A50 have a connector Type-C, headphone Jack and single speaker. The right side is triple the slots for two SIM and memory card and in the left part — separate volume keys and the power button.

The main differences you can see, only turning both phones. The younger model got touch fingerprint scanner and only two cameras. At this time, big brother, A50, ready to boast of all three of the eyes the camera and scanner directly under the screen.

To the touch it may seem that we are dealing with the usual «sandwich» of the frames and two glass sheets, but this tactile deception. Crafty engineers have created something called «fiberglass». Only an experienced user will be able to smell a rat and 10-15 minutes is sure to say that the entire body, except for the screen protection plastic.

Big problems do not see this, you’re less likely to break. And the appearance, in this case, no effect. That only is the rounded corners of the covers, like the curves of the screens of the flagship line.

No play buttons or crunching when you try lightly twisting is not detected. Both devices not only look, but also felt really high quality.

Screen

Both smartphones use the same screen. And for that, no need to criticize, they need to loudly praise! We are talking about a real Super AMOLED display with FullHD resolution+.

Yes, among the hundreds of people it is easy to find dozens of opponents of this matrix. But I can say that it has a high contrast ratio, a large amount of brightness and good viewing angles.

It is worth Recalling that it gradually fades, so the function is Always On Display gradually moves the display object. But it turns a deep black color, because it’s just almost off the pixels.

For consumption of multimedia content is one of the best solutions, which makes the Samsung flagship so attractive. And very happy that the A30 has the same great display as its older brother, because all communication with the device happens through a screen.

Believe me, if your old photo is not black and white, then you might want to discover something new. This is how it works, but for lovers of image processing it will be a real trouble. Because as juicy picture will see only the owners of the same «super» AMOLED-s.

Performance

Model A30 has got Samsung Exynos 7904 and A50 meets the Exynos 9610. And if you do these numbers say nothing, then subjective impressions elder brother is about one and a half times faster.

This is seen everywhere: in the work of the integrated applications of reaction menu the word scrolling tape. The A30 is not slow. But as hands were at once two smartphones, the fate was destined to compare them.

We can say that the A30 is able to work stably under light loads, messengers, when connected to the browser, with easy inclusion of toys with medium or low graphics settings.

At this time, the A50 allows you to confidently turn in work with multiple tabs or toys at medium or high settings. RAM can be from 6 GB vs maximum with 4 GB A30, which seriously affects the stability of the operating system.

Interestingly, the Exynos 9610 is a very new chipset and therefore get funny funny things. For example, Asphalt 9 you can safely download through Google Play on V30, and V50 to here you will not find it. Apparently, not all developers have updated their apps to a fresh chip.

Soft

Both devices are controlled by Android 9.0, on top of which it is established branded GUI One UI.

I must say that it is not overloaded TouchWiz. It is seen that the company are able to draw conclusions and bring them to life. The shell has a fairly large elements. Icons, buttons — they are large, they are convenient to use.

I liked the fact that all of the convenient functions is right at hand. For example, to remove the lower panel right from the notification bar. Hence it is possible to activate a dark theme, it’s called «night mode».

By the way, to change details of the interface in the app Samsung Themes. Here’s a huge collection of Wallpapers, icons and themes. Many of them are paid, but are purely symbolic money, about 50-60 rubles.

Not to mention the right screen with smart tips from Bixby. Here you can find a history of your activity, view tasks from the calendar, or to manage your smart home. Of course, most users just score on the assistant, but someone may find it useful.

Camera

I have to tell you that during the test I was a little shocked. On paper we have a distinct advantage of model A50. After all, she’s on the back side of the module: 25 MP, 8 MP and 5 MP. And this against two of the lenses on the A30 for 16 and 5 MP.

Actually, it turns out that the device again abuts the software implementation. The application itself camera works on the older model is faster, but the result is not always superior to the younger brother. Both phones were updated to the latest firmware version.

Enough to bring one of the test photos, as immediately becomes apparent that the detail from the A30 is often higher, although the megapixels is the main sensor A50.

Immediately can note strange the algorithm of white balance. It is seen that the elder brother tries to lighten the frame, but often goes in the wrong tone, pay attention to the sky.

In General we can say that it’s probably just a feature of this firmware version. After all, throughout the review from time to time we are faced with the adaptation of software for the new processor.

In poor lighting conditions the case is back in the right direction, and in the first place is the older model. But the color implementation of the image I like it more in the younger version.

If we talk about the front camera, then on each side it’s not bad. 16 MP from the A30 and A50 have as many as 25. The result looks about the same. But again is sin of the software. After all, when it finished, the potential of modules A50 is finally revealed.

Experience

You know, not so simple. For example, I really want to find fault with the optical sensor fingerprint scanner in A50. Yeah, looks really surprising. The matrix highlights specific region of the screen, drawing your finger reflects light and depending on the matches entered the picture, the smartphone allows you to use all of its functions.

But in the end it turns out that the scanner on the back side of the A30 runs faster. In the case of the A50, the first time just trying to get used to the layout of the area to scan, because any corner to rest my finger will not work. Next, begin to get there even on screen off and either wait a few seconds, or get an error message.

The second controversial point is autonomy. I said that the chipset in A50 released recently. To optimize third-party programs, and internal software will take some time. And at the moment the A30 lives longer, about 30-40 minutes.

Both devices is enough for a full work day with 6-7 hours of screen. Thanks to the oversized battery on 4000 mAh, separate plus — fast charging.

In both models there is NFC, so that contactless payment is available to all users current A-series.

No external indicators of notifications could not be found, so that all the duties of the led assumes Always On Display, which is activated when you tap the screen and disappears in about 25 seconds.

And finally, I would note the ability of new products to collect fingerprints. Yeah, they only become apparent when a lot of them, but over time the back cover is more like a camouflage of divorce, which is common to all glass phones.

Insights

Once again, thank Samsung for equipping both the smartphones are equally cool, screens, batteries and connectors. Despite your choice, in any case, you get stunning image, USB Type-C, NFC and 3.5 mm Jack.

The cost of smartphones on «Yandex.The market»:

  • Samsung Galaxy A30 — from 15 990 rubles
  • Samsung Galaxy A50 – from 19 990 rubles

And then it should build on your potential tasks. Paying extra for A50, the user has the opportunity in the future to make higher quality images and significantly harder to load your camera.

If the camera and the extra performance is not a priority for you characteristics, you can safely stay on the A30, which is an attractive state with good design and freaky screen.
