Samsung Galaxy A51Review

Samsung launched the successor of the Galaxy A50s as the Samsung Galaxy A51. Galaxy A51 looks great and let’s discuss how much it has improved than the Galaxy A50s.


Samsung Galaxy A51 is offered with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display that has a screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels along with a pixel density of 396 PPI. However, there is no screen protection. The screen looks amazing colors are great and vivid just like the other Samsung displays. But it lacks protection and this could have been done better.



Samsung Galaxy A51 on the rear packs a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/2.0 aperture; a second 12-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture; a third 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a fourth 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture. It sports a 32-megapixel camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.2 aperture.

The performance of the rear cameras are great capable of taking some nice shots in daylight not that much good but decent photos. Low-light pictures and not that good they are just decent colors are good.

Macro shots are also just okay. The depth camera we played with and it had some issues while focusing on the low-light indoor environment. This should be improved with the upcoming updates.

The Galaxy A51 can shoot video at up to 4K, but without any stabilization. Video quality is not bad if shot under good light, but in low light, clips are grainy and details are weak. You do get stabilization at 1080p, but as a result, there’s also a noticeable shimmer effect when walking about. Continuous autofocus is also a bit sluggish. This shimmer effect is amplified in low light and looks jarring. You can use the ‘super-steady’ shooting mode, which uses the wide-angle camera to record video. The stabilization is better, but the details are weaker.

The front 32-megapixel camera captures 12-megapixel or 8-megapixel oversampled shots, depending on the perspective you choose. Selfies generally weren’t very clear. Skin tones were smoothened a bit too much and shots ended up looking a little dull overall. Details were good in low light, but with a slight lack of sharpness.


The Samsung Galaxy A51 is powered by an Exynos 9611 10 nm chipset with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage.

The phone’s performance is smooth for day-to-day tasks like multitasking between social media apps, watching a video and sending emails.

Good daily driver, decent for gaming, but not entirely lag-free. Heavy gaming will not me entirely lag-free but the device is enough to power you for the daily day to day usage. Instead of Exynos 9611, some other processor would have been a better option for this device. K20 series and Realme X2 are the ones that offer more performance including the newly launched Poco X2.


The Galaxy A51 employs a 4,000 mAh battery. In the box, you get a 15 W fast charger that takes your phone from 0 to 45 percent in about 40 minutes.

Fully charged, the phone easily lasts close to two days if you use it for simple day to day tasks like using social media apps, making notes, and answering calls.

However, if you watch too many videos, your battery life may come down to a day. That may become even shorter if you play graphic-heavy games for extended periods.

Overall Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy A51 offers good daily usage along with good daylight cameras and a battery that will last a day for daily usage. If you are looking for performance then you can go for other options as this is not ideal for heavy gaming you can opt for a better alternative. Also, this can be a great device for girls who don’t game much and want a good camera and good software. If looking for performance then Poco X2, Realme X2 and K20 series the best option in terms of gaming and other uses.
