Samsung Galaxy A50 –

The triple back camera is in vertical alignment. The dimensions of the device is 158.5 x 74.7 x 7.7 mm thick and weighing at 166 grams.

The distribution of buttons is quite classic. The volume buttons are placed right side. Type-C charging port is placed next to the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack at the bottom and the SIM tray on the left side.

Which One is Better?

It depends on the situation, if you want a good camera then you should go for A50s but if you are someone who needs performance then A50 is good to go.
