Summary of advantages

Samsung Galaxy A50:
• Slightly larger screen
• Triple rear cameras with ultra wide lens
• Higher front camera resolution
• Dedicated microSD card slot
• On-screen fingerprint scanner

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro:
• Slightly higher screen pixel count
• Gorilla Glass 5
• Higher main camera resolution
• Faster traditional fingerprint scanner

Both devices sport large screens above 6-inches with tiny notches. The Galaxy A50 though is slightly larger but only by 0.1-inch. The pixel density is also in the same range with Redmi Note 7 Pro having a bit of an advantage. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two is in the choice of panels.


The Galaxy A50 uses a Super AMOLED for deeper blacks and more saturated colors, while the Redmi Note 7 Pro has an IPS with more natural colors. Either way, both devices can provide good viewing experiences. As for protection, the Redmi Note 7 Pro takes the cake for having the newer Gorilla Glass 5.

When it comes to imaging, both phones have merits. The Galaxy A50 has a triple camera setup though, consisting of a 25MP main, 8MP wide-angle, and 5MP for depth effects, making it a versatile shooter. The Redmi Note 7 Pro, on the other hand, only has a dual rear camera setup but has a higher resolution for the main camera at 48MP that is partnered to a 5MP depth camera. We’ll know more about its quality once we have both units for review.

The Galaxy A50 takes everything from here though, edging the Redmi Note 7 Pro for having a higher resolution for the selfie camera, a dedicated microSD card slot, and an on-screen fingerprint scanner for a more seamless design. Although speaking from experience, the tradition fingerprint scanner is faster.

Looking at the engine under the hood, the two are running difference chipsets – the Galaxy A50 has the Exynos 9610 Octa, while the Redmi Note 7 Pro uses a Snapdragon 675, but have the same RAM and storage configuration. We can’t determine yet which phone has the upper hand, but we’ll update this post once we have both phones for review and have done the benchmarks.

As for the price, the Galaxy A50 carries a price tag of PHP 17,990. Samsung has not disclosed the configuration but we were tipped that it is for the 4GB + 64GB model. The Redmi Note 7 Pro, on the other hand, is yet to be official here in the Philippines but it already launched in India for INR 16,999 or under PHP 13K. The price could be different if ever it arrives.

    How the hell is the on-screen finger print scanner an advantage for the A50? When clearly the best option is the fingerprint scanner on the Redmi Note 7.

    Well, Those numbers in the redmi note 7 pro’s camera are just number since this would still use the pixel binning, which in my opinion is not a bad idea since it makes the pixels bigger thus absorbing more light, and samsung A50 is using a native 25 mp. But why is it that samsung is jumping on the 3 camera bandwagon for this lower mid-range? I mean they could have done something more innovative with just 2 cameras in this price bracket and be the one plus camera killer or even play with gCam since it is open source and have it licensed with Google. LOL!

    + BENEFITS of having superamoled screen + UI integration
    + SAMSUNG UI – full featured, elegant, most intiitive and functional UI, no real competition
    + no unwanted ads (mi?)

    bonus: in-built screen fingerprint

    18k for such a50 specs is a great value compared to previous Samsung offering and competition

    Budget wise, i think rn7pro is the one that I would prefee

    • Rold says:

      Obviously, you’ll get a better hardware set up on Samsung A50 since its more expensive than RN7 Pro. LOL. so why compare the two units??? Anyway, spending more doesn’t mean you’ll get more. And for the record, Xiaomi builts quality smartphones like other big manufacturers. This review is senseless.

    Panget on-screen fingerprint scanner ng Samsung as you tend to press the screen harder nakakasira ng screen also tagal ng recognition. Lag pag ML A50 pero mas maganda camera ng A50 by far compare sa Redmi Note 7 :)
