DESIGN

While Samsung Galaxy A51 sure has some powerful specs, Samsung still managed to make it look appealing with a minimum bezel on the front. The rear side is made of glasstic(plastic + glass) along with patterns giving it an appealing look. The back is also prone to smudges; we recommend using a case to protect glass from shattering if it falls. It also has curved edges and corners, making it feel perfect in the hands. The Galaxy A51 fits 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display on with a Full HD+ resolution. The display on A51 is slightly taller than the rest of the smartphone as it features 20:9 aspect ratio. However, it does have a punch hole on the screen similar to Galaxy Note10-series, occupied by 32-megapixel selfie camera. Also, the device weighs 172g, making it lighter and feel slim in hands.

PERFORMANCE

The Samsung Galaxy A51 is powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9611 SoC sporting an Octa-Core processor and 6GB RAM. It handles most of the task and games with a breeze. Daily tasks never show any hiccups, including multitasking, but the device UI feels a little bit slower to respond. 3D games run very well too; we didn’t notice any performance or major heating issues when playing games such as PUBG Mobile and Modern Combat 4. The large 4000mAh battery works all day on moderate usage, and with fast charging capability, it gives 50% juice in just 45 minutes.

CAMERA

The speciality of the Samsung Galaxy A51 is the quad rear camera setup. All four lenses work best depends on the scene requirements. There are four rear cameras in this phone, in which one lens is the primary sensor featuring 48-megapixel sensor to capture an impressive shot in low light, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, 5-megapixel macro sensor and the last is a 5-megapixel sensor to blur the background. The front camera is of 32-megapixel. You will love the wide-angle lens of the camera because it will capture with a fantastic perspective. Taking pictures using with a rear camera captured impressive pictures with great clarity, this made it possible with the 48-megapixel sensor, which combines the detail of four pixels into one helping reduce noise and increase quality. In terms of video, the device can shoot up to 2K, which turns out smooth and sharp, but it does have noise when capturing at an indoor location.

VERDICT

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy A51 performs well in terms of Performance and Camera capability. However, when given a massive task, it slightly shows that it is under-powered. That’s being said; if you’re looking for a slim and beautiful looking smartphone at an attractive price point, then Galaxy A51 is genuinely made for you.
