Aspera A50
  • Storage: 16GB
  • Size: 5 inches
  • Battery: Average (2,300mAh)

Equipped with a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and a 5-inch HD display, the budget-friendly Aspera A50 is built to handle most basic smartphone needs.

Where most smartphone manufacturers set their sights on the premium and mid-range markets, Aspera is one of the few companies dedicated to providing low-cost handsets that prioritise accessibility over bleeding-edge technology. The Aspera A50 is one such handset. Released in November 2017, it stands as the most powerful smartphone Aspera had produced prior to 2018. That said, it is still very much a budget device aimed at those who only need basic calling, texting and Internet functionality.


  • 5-inch 720p display is solid for a budget handset.
  • Android 7.0 adds plenty of handy features and provides compatibility with most modern apps.


  • The 5MP rear camera should manage basic photography reasonably well.
  • 2MP front camera should also prove sufficient for basic selfie needs.


  • Adequate power for simple everyday tasks like sending emails and checking social media.
  • Multi-tasking and mobile gaming are not its strong suit.


  • 2,300mAh battery is fairly standard for a budget smartphone.
  • Battery can be removed and replaced, which is always a plus.
