User opinions and reviews

  • britney bit*h

lenovo z6 lite is way more powerful in every corner cpu battery screen resolution and everyting and all of that for less than half the price

Well yeah, if you care about camera almost any phone will be better than A9. I had a chance to use A20 few days ago, and even that phone produces better low light images than A9. So yeah, if you care about camera go for A50.

I would chose the A50 i am getting one for my self i preffer the newer phone and the camera on a50 in my opinion is better than a9
