If you’re in search of a smartphone with a huge display, bigger battery, and a variety of photography features, but don’t want to spend too much on a smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A51 could be the ideal phone for you.
The Samsung Galaxy A51 is not a very pricey phone. It’s a mid-range handset with some features acquired from the firm’s flagship range. You don’t only get a larger screen, but also a sizable battery. With its dearth of cameras and an attainable price tag, the Galaxy A51 makes a positive first impression.
Below we’ve made a list of Samsung Galaxy A51’s specifications for you.
- Processor. Exynos 9611.
- RAM. 6 GB.
- Storage. 128 GB.
- Display. 6.5 inches.
- Camera. 48 MP (wide) + 12 MP (ultrawide) + 5 MP (wide) dedicated macro camera + 5 MP depth sensor.
- Battery. Non-removable Li-Po 4000 mAh battery + Fast battery charging 15W.
Design and Screen
Samsung Galaxy A51 appears to be a great smartphone. It looks notably like the Samsung Galaxy S20, especially because of its centered punch-hole on the front and rectangular camera module on the rear. Obviously, since it is cheaper, a few concessions have to be made. For example, the body of this phone is made of plastic instead of the S20 series’ metal. Hence, this phone is lighter which is great in a bigger handset, but it makes the phone feel low in quality with a relative absence of heft.
The phone looks premium quality with a 6.5” screen composed of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, the phone’s enormous display, disturbed only by a small punch-hole which is Samsung’s smallest ever.
The Full-HD screen with up to 650 nits and lustrous colors, is bright and lovely. Just like most mid-rangers, it remains in the 60Hz ballpark. Nonetheless, the screen still appears to be great when content is viewed. Samsung’s One UI 2, based on Android 10, is just a satisfaction to navigate, especially with the A51’s big, bright screen guiding the way.
The phone’s back camera has 48MP wide-angle, 12MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro, and 5MP depth lenses. The phone’s 48MP camera is simple and pleasing to use. It has the capability of capturing high-quality scenic shots with sharpness and a lot of detail. The camera design supports up to 8x digital zoom. However, on the downside there’s a general loss of detail at the maximum 8x zoom.
With the 48MP lens, the colors are bright, even though they are a little oversaturated, the details are nice and clear. The 32MP selfie camera can be used with ease and produces stunningly detailed front-facing shots with limited camera noise.
The phone has the capability of recording footage in 4K, captured with excellent detail. Unfortunately, even now the cameras still experience shakiness and slight motion blur. However, considering the price range the camera system is still great.
The A51 is running the octa-core Exynos 9611. This chip has 10nm architecture instead of the smaller, superior 7nm architecture chips in the S20 series. It comes with 64GB or 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM, which keeps the phone running effortlessly.
In addition to this, the phone also comes with a MicroSD slot for cards of up to 512GB. The phone packs a 4,000mAh battery and 15W fast charging. It lasts for up to 36 hours on moderate use.
We’ve already talked about the phone’s impressive Super AMOLED display, but regrettably, the phone’s single speaker is a bit of a let-down, producing a tinniness that is particularly harsh at a louder volume.
We’re sure that by now you know the score. For a phone costing so low the Samsung Galaxy A51 is a fabulous handset. It may not be the best in its range but it lies between the Google Pixel 3a and Samsung Galaxy S10e, especially when it comes to price, making it one of the best new Android phones for users with limited resources.
