Samsung Galaxy A51 review

by birtanpublished on August 29, 2020

Hey what's up guys will here for GSM marina this is the Samsung Galaxy a 51 sort of like the foot soldier of Samsung's 2020 mid-range lineup last year's a series phones were really competitive but do we have the same amount of value the same around let's

Find out in our galaxy a 51 review the galaxy a 50 ones design is no surprise if you're familiar with Samsung's phones just like last year's model it looks similar to a Samsung flagship but it's made of plastic to cut costs it even

Brings back the same finish as last year which gives off a rainbow of colors in certain lighting there's a new texture underneath this time around to set it apart other than that the only major difference is the new l-shaped camera

Setup which houses four cameras and the LED flash one thing that really stands out to me is how slim and light this phone is not clunky at all but you know I was expecting something more flavorful from a phone called the a 51 maybe

There's an easter egg hidden somewhere but if there is I haven't found it yet one thing that is no surprise here is the trademark Samsung infinity display it's a 6.5 inch Super AMOLED with a 1080p resolution and though it isn't

Curved it does have some really slim bezels instead of a notch for the selfie cam there's a punch hole it's not totally unobtrusive but it's alright the viewing experience on this screen is great with plenty of sharpness and of

Course contrast colors can be set accurately in the color settings and brightness is respectable you can get over 400 nits with a manual slider and around 613 it's in bright conditions with auto mode toggle there's an OS on

Display which will show you the time and notifications when the phone is asleep and there's a nother display fingerprint reader to wake up the phone with it's reliable but not the fastest around for audio loudspeaker quality is decent

But this single speaker is nothing special there's a 3.5 millimeter audio jack on the a 51 for headphones and actually quality here is great there's a lot of volume and not a lot of distortion we also get expandable

Storage on top of the 64 or 128 gigs built in so plenty of space for your tunes the Galaxy a 51 comes with Samsung's latest 1uy 2.0 over Android 10 some of the new features include a dark mode for your menus and a new set of

Gestures for navigation here you swipe from the sides to go back rather than swiping from the bottom like before though the old options are still there if you want you also have edge panels here which can

Be pretty handy swiping on the edge of the screen will bring you to a customizable space for shortcuts at the heart of the a51 is Samsung's new Exynos 96 11 chipset it's about on par CPU wise to the snapdragon 660 but does worse in

GPU tests actually the a 50 ones performance scores are lower than the majority of his competitors it won't let you down with everyday tasks but I wouldn't choose this phone if I were planning to do some heavy gaming so then

How's the battery life well the a 51 scored an endurance rating of 86 hours an hour battery tests not bad but less than last year's model and nothing special for a mid-range err these days charging speed using the bundled 15 watt

Adapters again not bad but not great either we were able to charge from 0 to 35% in half an hour the Galaxy a 51s quad cameras are probably as big as change from last year's model there's a 48 megapixel quad bear main cam a 12

Megapixel ultra wide-angle cam a 5 megapixel macro cam and a depth sensor in daylight the main camp takes decent pictures there's good sharpness wide dynamic range low noise and balanced colors but we're not fans of how the

Phone renders fine detail you can shoot in the full 48 megapixels too but these don't give you much benefit and the file size is much larger the ultra wide-angle camera is quite capable for a mid-range sharpness and dynamic range are both

Quite good making this a significant upgrade from last year's model portraits taken with the main camera in that sense there are really good too subject detection and separation are excellent and the defocus

Background blur looks nice the dedicated macro camera has fixed focus so it's a pain to get your subject in the focus sweet spot if you get that right the results can be pretty decent now under low-light photos unfortunately these

Aren't grades they're soft and noisy with washed out colors dynamic range is decent for what it's worth night mode gives you a sharper image with better definition in the shadows the color rendition is the same though and these

Come out cropped at 8 megapixels as you'd expect the ultra wide-angle cam isn't do a very good job in low-light these photos are soft dark and noisy night mode helps a lot though and reduces a lot of the noise you still end

Up with a pretty soft photo the a51 has a 32 megapixel quad bear selfie cam and you'd expect eight megapixel photos but for some reason they come out in 12 megapixels instead perhaps through upscale we don't mind though selfies

Turn out good with nice colors why dynamic range and plenty of detail one feature you won't find just anywhere is 4k video recording from the selfie camera these videos look good with a nice exposure though I wish the

Stabilization was better the galaxy a 51 can also record an up to 4k at 30fps with this main camera and ultra wide cam footage from the main camera looks decent colors are accurate and dynamic range is wide but it does seem a bit

Over processed the ultra wide-angle cams colors are slightly washed out in comparison and contrast is a bit lower but is still alright it does have pretty good dynamic range to stabilization is only available when recording in 1080p

From the main can there's a tendency for focus hunting but stabilize footage from the ultra wide is super smooth so that's the galaxy a 51 you get a beautiful and lightweight build a brilliant AMOLED display and a versatile set of cameras

Just looking at that is a pretty nice phone but it does come up short in a few categories which are pretty important for mid-range errs battery life and charging speed are good but not great the chipset is just okay

And probably the most important is the price this phone is going for over 300 euros right now it's a lot especially since last year's model was cheaper at launch so overall I would say that there are better options out there for a

Mid-range err but if you're dead set on the Samsung and you don't mind paying the premium the 8051 will get the job done thanks for watching guys and see you on the next one
