This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

If you had your eye on one of these awesome bit of kit, and didn't want to import from China etc, then this is the next best price to the absolute best in the UK, which is Clove at £299.


Standard samsun eu wide warranty applies, but unsure on Samsung pay (maybe @bitcoin5 can confirm this?)

Any who, this is a cracking phone (on paper) in my opinion for the price.

Use a revolut card or other fee free card and pay in euros at checkout to get the very best price (£249), if you don't have one then the price is £262.

Yeah, couldn't agree more, I think they've done well with this in regards with price to spec.

Not something you can say often on an Samsung smartphone

Ja, sie ist sehr schmutzig
How have they kept the cost down for this? Must have a low end processor or something for Samsung to sell what looks like a pretty decent phone at this price
Edited by: "David_Livesey" 23rd Apr 2019
A lot of plastic, the below par camera (checkout gsmarena review) and a dodgy fingerprint sensor otherwise it's pretty decent.

I think it's around the Snapdragon 660 performance wise. There's a lot of competition in the mid-range market which they're aiming for. Xiaomi, Huawei, etc, etc.

See the comment above, though the processor is actually on par with the sd660, albeit a bit worse.

Even easier just to ask a simple question on here
Good phone but I'll hold out for a70 and that big big battery...
Are there any software differences between this one and the 6GB version on the likes of eGlobal?
Does anyone know how this compare to the Honor 10, particularly in terms of the camera?
I want to thank Mrswitch for originally bringing this phone to my attention just over a month ago. Although the A50 isn't as high up the performance ladder as I was looking at, I think the specs and features make it a sensible choice for my needs. I'm still a bit concerned about the size and even in the past month I've been weighing it up against other options, but either found that a feature is lacking/missing, or simply cannot justify the extra money. I should get it tomorrow.

Amazon UK, as I had some credit to use. They will probably re-stock and drop it by £30 tomorrow!!

I can't see anything either. Wanting to order one today but just a bit wary of ending up with some Asian version where features don't work in the UK.

At least with Xiaomi ones I knew just to make sure I was getting a Global version.

Me too, its an affliction, an expensive affliction.
What makes this better than the Samsung M20 ?

Genuine Question!

Got an M20 already which I love but for a few quid extra I could be persuaded to upgrade if there was something significant.

M20 has a 5000mAh battery.

IP water rating is all I consider the M20 to be missing.

Pretty sure Samsung have deliberately restricted the performance of the camera as well.
If I can get the Pixel 3 Google Camera App working on it I suspect results would jump from average to phenomenal

Looking on gadgets now I'd say base storage, triple camera (a50) , processor will be the biggie (exynos 9620 (a50) vs 7904 (M20)), screen (super Amoled vs TFT) front camera is better on a50, and there's an inscreen finger sensor on the a50, makes the a50 more desirable, therefore more expensive

Also Android 9.0+OneUI vs 8.1+Exp9.5
Not much more expensive though

50-60 quid.

1000mAH less battery though

Good to know!

Although that seems like a big difference in the battery, the endurance test on the link doesn't put them that far apart:

It'll be interesting to see the score for the A70, but I decided against the extra size and cost.
Robert_Paulson26 m ago

Possibly NFC on the A50 as well, depending on which model they are supplying. I don't see that in the spec on Amazon.de though, so anyone who needs it would be better off contacting them to confirm.

Amazon UK don't mention it either, but as they are selling it as the "UK Version" and Samsung UK have NFC listed in the specs there shouldn't be any doubt.
Voted hot but dex and other accessories do not work
Why isn't this blazing?
Oled and under display fingerprint are premiums

Nfc(maybe?), micro sd, 3.5mm audio

If you don't have fee-free card then just get one guys, it's free - that's what makes this a great deal

Samsung Pay needs UK firmware on S and Note series, but it's not included on this model as far as reviews are saying, so it's not even a downside from buying European model on this occasion. Google Pay kind of does same thing, arguably not as uber-conveniently.
