GALAXY A51 5G REVIEW
The Galaxy A51 5G brings looks that are extremely similar to it’s predecessors. The back design has a striped-pattern accent just like the A51. It’s made from an unspecified material like a sort of polycarbonate and aluminum frame and this makes the phone feels more premium in the hand.
It’s is a 6.5 inch Super AMOLED display much like the A51 version. It has a 1080p resolution and a circular cutout for the selfie camera.
The display is great and excellent being an AMOLED screen and there’s a brightness up to 410 nits maximum with manual mode and up to 614 nits in auto-mode.
Under the display, is a fingerprint reader which’s reliable to wake up and unlock the phone.
The A51 5G has a single speaker at the bottom of the phone. The speaker is not too loud but has an average rating in loudness test. A traditional headphone jack is included.
STORAGE & PERFORMANCE
There’s 128GB on-board storage which is expandable through MicroSD and runs the latest, up-to-date Samsung’s One UI 2 over Android 10. The User interface is smooth and bloat free. Inside the phone is a Exynos 980 8mm chipset which is a major upgrade over the Exynos 9611 on the regular A51.
The Exynos 980 performances can be compared to phones with a snapdragon 765G. The Exynos chipsets runs quite fast and smooth, the thermals are pretty good and you won’t notice any throttling gaming. It’s also packs a 4,500mAh which’s 500 more than the regular A51 and comes with a 15 watt Quick charger in the box.
It’s not the fastest charging speed but you can be able to charge from 0% to 40% in ½hrs.
There’s isn’t much change from the Galaxy A51 arrangements:
- 48 MP, f/2.0, 26mm (wide),
- 12 MP, f/2.2, 123˚ (ultrawide),
- 5 MP, f/2.4, (macro),
- 5 MP, f/2.2, (depth sensor).
In daylight photos, The main Camera captures really good looking photos with lot of fine detail, dynamic range colors are vivid and sharpness level is what you’d expect from Samsung.
Portraits mode are taken with the main Camera and depth sensor, the photos have good subject, separation are awesome and the fixed focus backgrounds have good impressions.
The ultra wide photos have good detail, wide dynamic range and lively color.
The macro camera does a nice work of producing close-up shots of tiny objects with enough detail.
For night mode, the photos are nice with detail in colors and more saturation.
The ultra wide-angle camera images have more detail especially dynamic color range and color rendering.
The selfie camera is 32 megapixel and photos are decent with good detail and excellent dynamic color range.
The A51 5G supports capturing 4k videos but there isn’t any video stabilisation in this mode.
The Galaxy A51 5G has a solid mid-range build, bright and colorful AMOLED display, good battery life, competitive performance and some decent camera’s. It’s an ALL-IN-ONE package.
The benefits of the A51 5G over the original A51 go beyond just 5G connectivity. you get:
