Front-facing camera as well there's my dog Doug so same thing we have our normal then we have our ultra wide so pretty big difference looks amazing then we turned on what I'm calling portrait mode right here so you can see him we can adjust the blur and then we have a normal picture of a backyard then we have it with ultra wide look at the difference huge difference night and day difference then we have a video we'll look at later then we have some pictures at night it was 9:40 p.m. the Sun had set still a beautiful blue sky in the risin though you can see a normal photo

At night then we have with night mode activated so pretty big difference between the two normal night mode then we have the same picture again normal but it's ultra wide and kind of see the difference then we have it ultra wide and night so you can see normal and wide night and wide there are really good results with the camera upon first use in impression so really cool really happy with the results so far spectacular image quality for the price of this phone now let's look at some videos alright so here's some of your raw test video I'm on a walk right now

With my sweet baby Lanie and my dog Doug right there you can see we're on a walk it's sunny out it's around noon so a lot of Sun this is the front-facing selfie camera right here with the raw audio and raw video unedited in any way I don't want to make this video dolled up or polish you guys can see what it's actually gonna look like for you raw audio raw video quality right here not doctored in any way so we got 1080p sixteen by nine for the front-facing camera right here now we're taking that same video again with the front camera but we got 2160p resolution right here

So we 4k resolution so you can see the quality as we walk around during the day it's right around noon here we're on a great walk right now so everything looks great seen it through the screen really happy with the quality from what I'm seeing from the phone but this is the front-facing camera unedited audio or video in any way in 2160p 4k resolution so here's the raw video and audio from the rear facing camera sixteen by nine 1920 by 1080p full-hd so you can see the video right here there's my dog Doug swimmin in the river he's enjoying his

Time beautiful day here you can see some kayakers and canoers a little bit further down there he is bringing me a stick that he just fetched so this is the raw video quality unedited in any way now we're taking the exact same video right now but with super steady turned on so we have super steady mode turned on you can see we're walking around the riverbed right here so we have super steady turned on we're just holding the phone in our hands and you can see what I'm walking on so you know it's not very easy to keep the phone steady right now here's super steady

Mode there's Doug enjoying his time at the river then we can see the canoers down there this is super steady mode turned on so the exact same video settings as the previous video but with super steady mode turned on right now so now here's 1080p full-hd from the rear camera in normal settings now you can see the rear camera 1080p with the ultra wide settings right here for video so makes a pretty big difference of what we can frame in our shot so now here's your video and audio sample from the rear camera at 2160p 4k right here so you can see what we have at 4k 2160p

There's Doug swimming the beautiful river we can keep walking around for a second so super steady mode does not work with 2160p 4k video so here's your 4k 2160p sample video in normal mode now you can see our 4k sample video with the ultra wide mode on right now so that also makes a huge difference in what can fit in the frame for the video that you're capturing just for fun I'm taking a video in the dark so you guys can see what it's like at night so there's not much light surrounding me right now but you can see what it's like in the dark now I'm gonna

Go ahead we're gonna trigger the backyard lights so we can do that right now and you'll be able to see what it's like with a big flood light illuminating the yard to get a better feel for the quality of this camera in a low-light environment currently we're shooting it with the rear camera 1920 by 1080p with super steady mode on alright so now we're gonna test out the messaging app on the 8051 so we have the 851 right here and we're gonna text ourselves on a new iPhone se 20/20 also on visibles networks let's go ahead let's try it out hi David exclamation mark Bend

And there we go we just got it on the iPhone let's send a message back maybe with an emoji so we just got the text back no issues at all right there now let's go ahead you want to take a picture maybe let's do that let's take a photo let's bring it around selfie we just took a selfie that looks great let's send that picture it's sin so the selfies on its way while we're waiting should we go ahead and let's take a photo over here love my dog Doug right there let's send that photo back

So it'll take a second for both images to arrive I can see on the iPhone this one's loading out right there and there we go we're downloading it right now and we got the other photo so look at that look at how easy that was everything works great with messaging now let's try out the call quality so the raw unedited audio coming out of the Samsung Galaxy a 51 as we test out the microphone and call quality of this device we're on the visible network as well to make this phone call but you guys can hear exactly how it sounds unedited in any way this is the raw mic

Audio let's go ahead let's hold the phone out in front let's talk in it for a second because you may actually do this in real life so you guys can see how it sounds just for fun we can put it all the way out here too to see how the mic quality is and then we could position it all the way over here we could switch hands and do the same thing on the other side but now we have it back up to our face pretty close to our mouth as we're talking now a little bit further away as well but this is our raw mic audio test for the Tampa Galaxy 851 so here are my final thoughts about this

Phone the screen wins the day it's my favorite feature hands down about this device honestly it feels like I'm holding a Samsung flagship phone right here but we're only in the a series this screen is spectacular I wasn't sure how is gonna feel about the whole punch camera but it works great with the screen the design everything it doesn't bother me at all actually think the whole punch is really cool in a unique feature of this phone I love having all the biometric options – and the embedded fingerprint sensor right in the screen is top-notch I love having

That right there as opposed to a dedicated button on the bottom or on the back of your phone so you get some spectacular features at budget pricing we're only in the a series right here and I love that they give us an ultra wide lens and a macro lens so that's fantastic I'll be using that ultra wide camera lens all the time it takes really good pictures at this price point I'm definitely impressed with it in the future though I would like to see a couple things changed I just really really want pure Android like I get on the

Pixel phones please please please I really want that on this device but there isn't that much bloatware and there UI is not that bad or anything either most people wouldn't notice or care but I love having pure Android on my pixel phone but again that's my own personal preference and opinion and the one feature I feel like they're missing that this phone really really needs especially with everything else that they give us that's top-notch is wireless charging I really want some wireless charging obviously I could say I want you know

More RAM and a better processor but I don't game or anything on my mobile phone so I'm really happy that we got the 4k camera sensor on the front and the back of this device so both cameras give us 2160p 4k maybe I'd like to see some improved video stabilization too with the 4k settings that we only get with 1080p I'd love to see that with 4k for this phone but that's because I like to take a lot of videos with my devices because I use them to film my YouTube videos but overall guys this is a solid choice for a mid-range phone well that concludes our video thank you so much
