Samsung Galaxy A50 series is one of Samsung bestsellers over the past few years. The phone is in the $400-$500 range, it’s the perfect middle ground between super cheap phones and expensive flagships. Other devices like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Flip were making headlines during 2020, last year’s Galaxy A51 was outselling just about every other Samsung product.

Volume and power buttons are located on the right side. The bottom has a single speaker grille, a USB Type-C port for charging and data transmission, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There’s a 15W wall charger included with the Galaxy A52 5G, and the phone reaches the same 15W speed with standard Qualcomm Quick Charge and USB Power Delivery chargers.
