While most eyes get fixed on the Samsung Galaxy S and Note series releases, most users tend to overlook the mid-range releases of Samsung. One of the 2019 amazing Samsung phones is the Galaxy A50. This device has a lovely design with a glossy gorgeous back that has a clean design with minimal branding. This design of the Galaxy A50 helps the Samsung Galaxy line finally compete with the Huawei and Honor amazing-looking phones. Of course, at this price point, the phone has a plastic back, but the finish makes it look like a glass body in all of its different color variations. Also, you won't be able to tell the plastic back apart from the glass one once you put on the phone case, which most users do right now for the phone's protection.
In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy packs great features that allow it to be high on the best smartphones of 2019 list as it includes a few features that you can only fond on a 2019 flagship such as the Galaxy Note 10. In this post, we are going to discuss different aspects of this phone while going in-depth about how to take a screenshot and a long screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy A50.
So before we get into all the different ways you can use the Galaxy A50 to take a screenshot or a screen recording, let's talk a little bit about the phone itself in terms of design, specs, and rating as a mid-range phone in the market at this point in time.
The Galaxy A50 is the first Samsung phone to have an in-display fingerprint scanner. We're starting with this feature as it brings a very futuristic look and feels to the phone and the entire experience of using it. If you are one of the users that prefer the back-mounted fingerprint unlock, it might take a while for you to get used to it. However, this is identical to unlocking an iPhone, for example, through the fingerprint unlock in the home button.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 runs Android Pie which can be considered normal to expect with a 2019 mid-range phone. However, what is awesome is the Super AMOLED display that offers an even higher resolution than the iPhone XR!
Thanks to Samsung's Super AMOLED technology, you can get the blackest of the black colors you can see on a smartphone display. With this color saturation level, the night mode, which is available in the phone's settings, is absolutely worth it!
The Samsung Galaxy A50 also features a Face ID, Infinity U display, A 1TB dedicated memory card slot, and the most impressive of all of the Galaxy A50 features, a 4000 mAh battery. As for the cameras, on the back, we get a triple camera system that includes a 25MP wide-lens main camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, and a 5MP depth sensor that is awesome when it comes to blurring the background in portrait mode. The camera films only Full HD videos at 1080p quality. Perhaps missing out on the 4K video quality is the only compromise the user makes in exchange for the price reduction with this phone.
As for the selfie camera on the Samsung Galaxy A50, Samsung is also giving us a 25MP wide lens with HDR and the ability to film Full HD videos on the front camera as well.
The Exynos Octa-core processor is powered by a 6GB RAM which provides amazing speed, responsiveness, and a nice multitasking performance on the A50.
There are multiple situations where taking a screenshot swiftly enables you to save important information or just keep a funny meme that you found accidentally on a social media platform before the auto-refresh makes you lose it forever!
Well, OK, things are not that dramatic, but all social media users are familiar with the frustration of having auto-refresh on Facebook or Instagram make a great post disappear without return in a split-second. So, knowing a way to take a screenshot on a galaxy A50 as fast as possible will most definitely come in handy.
There are 3 different ways to take a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy A50. Using the device's buttons, hand gestures, and third-party software. Check all three ways below:
1- The hardware method, which is the most typical way to take a screenshot on a Samsung A50 or any other smartphone. This way requires pressing and holding the power button & the volume down rocker until the screenshot is taken.
2- The second method is utilizing the Galaxy A50 Assistant. This method requires less effort and represents less wear and usage of the A50 hardware. To start the Galaxy A50 Assistant, go to Settings > Accessibility > Dexterity & interaction, then slide the Assistant setting to "On". Now you'll have an Assistant menu on the Samsung A50 screen. So, whenever you need to capture a screenshot, open this menu and just tap on the "Screenshot" option; just like that, the screenshot is taken!
3- The third way is using the hand gesture which will require enabling the settings for it. Go to Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and gestures > Palm Swipe to Capture. Turn on the slider switch to start using this feature. After that, all you need to do to take a screenshot on the Galaxy A50 is swiping the edge of your palm on the screen while slightly touching it.
There is also the option of downloading a screenshot app from Google Play Store and use it to take screenshots on your Samsung Galaxy A50. Depending on your usage preference, you will find this easier or harder to use. However, the third-party apps will offer you an additional option which is the screen recording feature. This will allow you to take a video of whatever task you're performing on the Samsung Galaxy A50. This is especially beneficial in case you want to demonstrate a certain feature on the phone.
No matter what purpose you need the screenshot or screen recording on your Galaxy A50 for, this phone is quite a catch as it offers multiple ways to do this as well as its super impressive features and affordable price tag.
