  • I'd like to thank everyone who's back again to check on our colorful chameleon buddy.

  • He's doing great, thanks for asking.

  • Today we're going to perform an autopsy on Samsung's budget phonethe Galaxy A50.

  • Maybe we'll see what snapped inside during the durability test.

  • And maybe we'll see what makes this phone so inexpensive once we get all up inside.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • With no visible screws holding this kaleidoscope together, we're going to jump into the tried

  • and true method of heating up the back panel to pull it off.

  • Being a cold blooded reptile, I'm sure the chameleon is going to love the heat.

  • You can see the colors start to warp a bit with my heat gun.

  • I'll stick a suction cup on the back and lift up while prying between the frame and the

  • plastic with my razor blade.

  • Once again, making this the trippiest cellphone teardown yet with how flexi the back panel

  • is.

  • No complaints here.

  • Turns out though that direct heat starts fracturing the colored part underneath the panel.

  • This makes our reptilian friend look much older than he actually is.

  • Fun fact: some chameleons can live to be 10 years old.

  • The nice thing about having a plastic back on a cell phone is that we don't need to worry

  • about the panel shattering into little glass shards.

  • This thing is as flexi as they can get.

  • And I can basically just peel it right off.

  • The A50 has one of the most fool-proof designs we've come across this year.

  • Making plastic phone panels this colorful is a real game changer.

  • The A50 isn't the same old boring single colored plastic panel that we're used to seeing on

  • budget phones.

  • This is next level.

  • Flagship imitation type stuff.

  • And it's surprisingly simple.

  • [Scratching sounds] Taking my razor blade to the back we can see that the color layer

  • scrapes offjust like what we would see on a glass panel.

  • The main structure is a clear acrylic and then the color is added to the underside.

  • Manufacturing a clear plastic phone is a real possibility.

  • The only problem with making a clear phone after the fact is since my razor blade is

  • a Mohs 5 and the plastic is a Mohs 3, the panel would be totally obliterated with deeper

  • grooves by the time I was done scraping off all the color.

  • Would you ever buy a clear phone or do you prefer the more colorful psychedelic backs?

  • Or are you the type of person that just wants a single solid color?

  • Let me know down in the comments.

  • Let's see what else this phone has to offer.

  • There are 13 normal Philips head screws holding down the back plastic panel.

  • And you would think at this point with all the screws removed that the back panel would

  • just come off, but nope, it's trickier than that.

  • The back internal plastics are connected with the sides of the phone in one solid piece

  • that very snugly hugs the device.

  • The sides of this plastic layer popping away from the screen is probably the snap we heard

  • during the durability test, since we haven't seen any broken screw holes or any internal

  • cracks to far.

  • Finally, since I definitely remembered to take out the SIM card tray at the beginning,

  • the back and side plastics lift off from the screen, revealing the fairly exposed loudspeaker

  • and the metal side button bracket that rests inside the plastic edge of the phone.

  • Now let's take a look at the phone guts.

  • I'll unplug the battery connector, it just unsnaps like a little Lego.

  • And then I can move over to the long extension ribbons which also unplug like little Legos.

  • Both of which have little arrows pointed up towards the main board just in case we get

  • lost while we're in here.

  • Down at the bottom we have two little screws holding in the optical fingerprint scanner.

  • This is one of those good types of sensors with a lens on it.

  • The sensor we saw inside of the Nokia 9 was one of the slower first generation under screen

  • scanners that didn't have a lens, and they just aren't as quick without it.

  • The charging port board is down here as well glued into the backside of the screen.

  • It has a water damage indicator on the back, along with a USB-C and a headphone jack.

  • Samsung has always been Team Headphone Jack since the beginning.

  • Well...they were Team Headphone Jack...I'm not quite ready to talk about it yet.

  • The main board was pretty difficult to find without, you know, the arrows, but I managed.

  • It has a black Phillips head screw holding down the bottom right corner.

  • Then I can unclip this center selfie camera, 25 megapixels.

  • And then the main board can come away from the phone.

  • There are no heat pipes but we do have 3 different cameras.

  • A top 5 megapixel depth sensor, then the 25 megapixel main camera, and an 8 megapixel

  • ultra wide.

  • None of which have optical image stabilization.

  • But hey, the phone is less than $300 brand new, so we can cut Samsung some slack.

  • One thing we can't cut Samsung slack for though is what's underneath this battery.

  • Or better, what's not under the battery.

  • Samsung has once again left off the battery pull tabs, making safe battery replacements

  • near impossible.

  • It's pretty ridiculous.

  • Not only can the user not replace their own battery, but recycling the phone at the end

  • of it's life is also much more difficult.

  • I mean, look at all this gunk.

  • Battery pull tabs cost literal pennies, and Samsung has to go at this gooey spider web.

  • I have to say it though, if you're currently trying to decide between two different phones,

  • buy the phone with a replaceable battery and skip this A50.

  • The way this battery is now bulging is very unsafe and we all know what happens when batteries

  • get bent or punctured.

  • I'll drop the main board back into place with it's red wire cable.

  • And I can get the top camera set into it's slot, and the bottom fingerprint scanner put

  • down inside it's little hole.

  • Don't get me wrong, I think the A50 is a great durable phone.

  • But permanent battery adhesive is completely unnecessary when safe alternatives exist that

  • are basically the same price.

  • I'll get the long extension ribbons clipped inmostly just to help us remember which

  • side of the phone is up.

  • And the compromised battery gets plugged in last before the plastics get set down.

  • The internal plastics include the side volume and power buttons, so they're pretty important.

  • You can hear the same loud cracking noise we heard during the bend test.

  • And would you look at thatthe phone still turns on.

  • I like what Samsung is doing.

  • A cheap powerful phone for the masses that still looks really good.

  • And if Samsung skipped the permanent adhesive underneath the battery, it would be an A+,

  • 10 out of 10, 5 star creation.

  • But that permanent battery adhesive is holding it back.

  • Either way, hit that subscribe button if you haven't already.

  • We have the Galaxy Note 10 coming up soon.

  • Come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter.

  • And thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.

I'd like to thank everyone who's back again to check on our colorful chameleon buddy.
