UPDATED: SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,500 (2019)

Samsung Galaxy A50

One of Samsung’s “premium midrange” smartphones, the Galaxy A50 has a great 6.4″ Full HD+ display, with minimum screen obstruction from the u-shaped notch it sports. Samsung’s Infinity-U display, like most Samsung smartphones, is a Super AMOLED display—making it one of the best screens you can get at this price.

Powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9610, the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant is the only one available locally. You’re well covered for photos, with a standard triple-camera setup at the back that comprises a 25MP f/1.7 aperture wide camera, an 8MP f/2.2 aperture ultra wide-camera, and a third 5MP depth sensor. Up front, the Galaxy A50 features a 25MP selfie shooter with a f/2.0 aperture lens.

A large 4,000mAh battery means the A50 should be able to last more than day on average, while a glossy “3D Glasstic” back gives it a more premium feel (compared to plastic backs, at least). If you’re looking for a superb display along with solid supporting specs, the A50 isn’t a bad choice at all.
