Do not buy!

I wondered why Optus were offering this free phone on their plans and I found out the hard way. After setting up my phone and starting to explore what it had to offer, the phone crashed and went to a black screen. I thought maybe out of battery. I charged it up and still not working. I took it back to Optus and they replaced it saying it was faulty. That evening was spent transferring everything over from my old phone and setting it up as I liked and logging into all my apps. Next day at lunch with 90% battery it crashed again and could not reboot, had fuzzy screen at one point. Took it back to Optus, fuming at this point after all the visits and time lost transferring over my data. They said it was a coincidence which is bs and not known any problems, as it happened an expert from Samsung was there and denied any issues. I looked online and lots of reports of the same issue. So here I am on my 3rd A50 within 48 hours wasted more time setting up again and wondering when it will happen again. This phone is seriously flawed and Samsung are covering up the issue. Do not buy.

I’m really sorry to hear of the experience you've had so far and that we didn't meet your expectations. From what you’ve described, it sounds like it would be best to head into a Samsung studio so our team can look further into this for you.

Interested to know if you have had any similar issues reported. It was frustrating and disappointing experience and have had no compensation for what should be an enjoyable experoence of getting a new phone.

Worth the price

I bought this Samsung Galaxy A50 and it is really worth the price. Great phone at a a great price.
Would have loved to have a better screen resolution. But I am quite happy for the price I paid.

Great phone - not too complicated

This is the perfect phone If you just use the basic features and don't want to pay a fortune, It has a nice size screen, is easy to use and camera is excellent. Samsung store helped me transfer all photos and data over from old Galaxy S4.

Great

Very happy with Photos that I have taken. The clearness of people speaking is great. It is easy to carry & understand how to "work" the phone . Apps are easy to install.

Great mid range phone

After using a Galaxy s9 I was worried that the A50 would be a real step down but to my surprise the phone is fantastic. Bigger screen than the s9 with a beautiful thin look and fantastic features as well.

Good value phone

I am satisfied with this phone in general, but as many people mentioned here and there, the fingerprint unlock is not working well. Besides, the battery, photo quality, and performance perspective, they are better than I expected.

Questions & Answers

Wondering if Tony Deals, in Hong Kong, is a reputable online shop to buy a new Samsung mobile from?
3 answers
I frankly don't know if Tony Deals is a reliable online shop. I know there are many good and bad reputations online. Personally, I didn't have any issue. The shipment was what I expected and they promised. Their communication was good in general. The shipment was relatively quick compared to other sellers in either China or Hong Kong.Thanx for your answer about TOBY Deals Online..
