Samsung totally renewed the Galaxy A series with completely different products. Among the first ones from the renewed line-up, there is Samsung Galaxy A50, which the Korean giant just unveiled in the global market. Given its quite a few impressive specs and its interesting value, we think it is value comparing the fresh A50 with 2 major products unveiled in the last time. We are talking about the Oppo F11 Pro and Vivo V15 Pro, 2 remarkable upper-midrange phones with pop-up cameras. Is Samsung at the exact same level as its Chinese competition with its midrange suggests? With this specifications comparison, we will help you find out.
Oddly, regardless of being upper-midrange devices, all those handsets come with a plastic body, and that is not the top of elegance. However Oppo F11 Pro and Vivo V15 Pro have an important added price: the pop-up digital camera what makes the design cleaner and the screen-to-body ratio quite high with no the need for a notch. I personally like the Vivo V15 Pro extra due to the fact, besides having a pop-up sensor and with no notch, it even comes with an in-screen fingerprint scanner which makes the rear side even cleaner. I even such as extra its gradient color version.
It is a hard fight between Samsung Galaxy A50 and Vivo V15 Pro, even though the Oppo F11 Pro has the advantage of boasting a bigger screen. Vivo V15 Pro comes with the Super AMOLED technology and 100 percent of DCI-P3 coverage, so it need to offer a improved colour reproduction. Further, it does not have a notch, unlike the Samsung Galaxy A50.
Vivo V15 Pro wins even after it ships to the hardware side. It has a certainly more powerful chipset: the fresh Snapdragon 675 that is also found on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. It is the perfect midrange SoC by Qualcomm along the Snapdragon 710 and it offers blazing speeds. Further more, the Vivo V15 Pro is the only smartphone of this trio to come with up to 8 GB of RAM. And it also has a micro SD dedicated slot that enables using the dual SIM tray and the micro SD at the similar time. The second place goes to Samsung Galaxy A50 and its Exynos 9610 built with a 10 nm production process. I would not go for the Oppo F11 Pro because it does not have a micro SD tray. All the handsets run a customized Android variant, however I personally prefer Samsung’s one due to its smarter another attributes, even though a large amount of people think it is too heavy.
On the paper, the most impressive digital cameras belong to the Vivo V15 Pro. Initial of all, it ships with an amazing triple sensor on the rear side, composed of a base 48 MP scanner, a secondary ultrawide scanner and a depth sensor, which could record video with 4K resolution. Further more, it has a remarkable 32 MP front digital camera for selfies what allows capturing pretty high definition pictures. It is still a midrange option, but it remains impressive. We give the second place to the camera department of the Samsung Galaxy A50 with a shiny aperture for the main 25 MP scanner, a secondary ultrawide lens, and a depth sensor. The last place goes to the Oppo F11 Pro, however it does not mean that it is disappointing. It still has a superior dual camera with a 48 MP main sensor just which includes the Vivo V15 Pro.
The battery life is a strong point of all of those handsets. Samsung Galaxy A50 and Oppo F11 Pro should be the longest lasting ones since they boast a big 4000 mAh battery. Given the AMOLED display and the SoC built with a 10 nm production process, Samsung Galaxy A50 need to have a somewhat longer battery life than Oppo F11 Pro. Vivo V15 Pro has a smaller 3700 mAh battery, so it is unlikely that it will achieve its challengers. All the products are equipped with a fast charging tech, however Vivo V15 Pro should be able to charge faster thanks to its smaller battery dimensions and higher power for the quick charging tech (18W). As claimed by to the manufacturer, Vivo V15 Pro could achieve 24 percent in just 15 minutes of charging.
Vivo V15 Pro wins this comparison because of its much better performances, amazing digital cameras, and innovative design, however it costs more: about ?360/$405 in Asia. You could grab a piece of the Samsung Galaxy A50 in the global market for ?350/$395, while Oppo F11 Pro costs about ?320/$360.
