Reviews


Highlights


1. Super AMOLED Infinity O display
2. UHD 4K video recording
3. 5 MP depth camera
4. Outstanding design





Design


Hey folks, let’s start with the design parameter. Samsung Galaxy A51 hands-on feel is pretty good. The mobile is built with high-grade plastic material, and the color gradient pattern at the back looks nice. Though it does not have a glass back, the overall build quality is so solid, and Samsung has made a first-class design.



Moving on to other external physical parameters, Galaxy A51 has type C port with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a single speaker at the charger port.




Display


The unique feature of the mobile is its high tech exceptional display. SUPER AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) display technology is being used by the company to grab display-oriented fans. Further, there is a small punch hole at the center, and that’s called an infinity O display.



The bezels at the edge of all the boundaries are so thin compared with other predecessors. This phone has a Full HD+ resolution (1080*2400) with a refreshing rate of 60 Hz, and yes, you may feel that the refreshing rate doesn’t match with the price segment.



Samsung has got the Wide1 L1 certification for A51 to stream the HD content on OTT platforms. Since it has an AMOLED display, the colors are vibrant, punchy and sharp.



Underneath the display, there is an optical fingerprint scanner performing its job quite well. For extra protection, they have used sturdy, solid, and dense corning glass gorilla 3. Overall, the company has provided a super, sharp, and perfect display for its users.




Performance


The processor Exynos 9611 is an average processor with normal performance. And yes, this processor is not meant for gamers to play high-end games. Samsung could have given a better processor in this price range. But still, it won’t disappoint the people who make day to day normal tasks and play light games.



Samsung has replaced it's old 1 UI 1.1 with 1 UI 2.0, which is a great move to present great user experience. The Android 10 based one UI 2.0 puts a smile on the face of users to provide them out of the box experience.




Camera


At the rear portion, A51 has quad-camera setup ––The presence of 48 MP primary camera does its job well though the output is made with Pixel Binning Technology. Then, by setting up a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, Samsung upgraded this camera from its 8 MP ultra-wide camera.



The sweet spot in the quad-camera setup is its 5 MP depth camera. While its other competitors still give only 2 MP as a depth camera. Then, we can say, the final 5 MP Macro camera performs well, but not excellent.



The photos taken on these cameras are sharp and vibrant. The dynamic range is also pretty good. But still, comparing with the price range, the cameras could have been better. And yes, the cameras failed to prove its efficiency in low light conditions, and they gave a poor performance in Night conditions.



To speak about portrait shots, the presence of 5 MP depth camera focus the subject well and splits the subject well from its background. The 32MP selfie camera will excite the people who love to post photos on social media. The presence of UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) @30fps gains special attention among the video lovers.



But still, Samsung could have given video stabilization for 4K video records. We can make 1080p only @30fps with video stabilization.




Battery


Though Samsung provides only a 15W fast charger for the 4000 mah battery, the battery backup is superb. 4000 mAh can give one full day backup time when we go with normal day to day tasks with light usage. The company claims that the battery life can stand up to 20 hours of video playback time.



On comparing Galaxy A51 with Galaxy M21, the A51 provides us with high disappointment in battery strength. M21 has 6000 mah with a price range of around Rs.13,000/-while A51 has just 4000 mAh with a price range of Rs.24,000/-. When you are more concerned with battery life, we suggest you go with Samsung Galaxy M21.




Price


The price of Samsung Galaxy A51 fixed at Rs.23,000/- for a base variant 6 GB / 128 GB and the upper variant’s price is set at Rs. 27999/- offering 8 GB / 128 GB. We feel the price segment of this mid-range mobile is a bit high compared with its competitors who provide much more power-packed features than Galaxy A51.



So if you look for more features than this for the same price, you can probably look for other better choices in the mid-range platforms.




Pros

  • Sleek design despite 4000 mah battery

  • Super AMOLED display

  • Good Battery life

Cons


  • Exynos 9611 – Could have been upgraded

  • Gamers might get irritated on playing intensive games with this processor

  • Expensive

Verdict

Samsung Galaxy A51 won’t disappoint you if you don’t look for high intense games to play and outstanding camera shots.
