T-Mobile REVVL 5G vs Samsung Galaxy A51 5G – Who Will Win?

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my comparison between the t-mobile revel 5g and the samsung galaxy a51 5g so let's get started so this is the t-mobile revel 5g and this is the samsung galaxy a51 5g now the revel 5g was launched about a month ago and the a515g was launched in april of 2020. now as the name implies the t-mobile revel 5g is exclusive to t-mobile and also is being offered by metro by t-mobile and

With the galaxy a51 5g this phone is being offered factory unlocked and you can also get it from a variety of different carriers including t-mobile and metro but to see the most up-to-date pricing for these two devices either go to your local carrier store or take a look at the links in the video description now with the revel 5g we're getting a 6.53 inch display compared to a slightly smaller 6.5 inch display

With the a51 5g now when holding the two phones up next to each other the revel 5g is definitely the larger phone of the two but that's partially due to it also having larger bezels now these two devices also feature different display technology so with the revel 5g we do have an ips lcd display which does look very nice but with the galaxy a51 5g we have a super amoled display so with super amoled you are going to be getting much better viewing angles

Better colors and the display itself will be brighter now both displays do feature 1080p as the resolution with the revel 5g we're getting a ppi of 395 compared to a ppi of 405 with the a51 and then finally with the revel we're getting an aspect ratio of 19 and a half by nine compared to 20 by nine with the a51 5g so we are getting a little bit of a more narrow but taller form factor here with the samsung now with both of these devices up top we do have hole punches

For the front facing cameras and with the revel 5g the hole punch is situated off to the upper left whereas with the a51 5g the hole punch is in the center now with the t-mobile level 5g we do have a 16-megapixel front-facing camera compared to a 32-megapixel front-facing camera with the a51 5g now both phones do feature 128 gigabytes of internal storage and we're also getting microsd card expansion now neither of these two phones offer wireless charging

But they do both feature fingerprint sensors and face unlock now with the revl 5g the fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the device so we'll give that a try right now and that was a very fast fingerprint sensor and then with the a51 5g the fingerprint sensor is built into the display and it also is pretty quick so it really depends on your personal preference whether you'd rather have your fingerprint sensor be on the back of the phone

Or built into the display i know that having the in-display fingerprint sensor definitely is something that is a bit more modern but then again it's not like it's necessarily more convenient than having it on the rear so again it really comes down to your personal preference now also on the back of these two devices are the camera modules so with the revel 5g we have a 48 megapixel main camera an 8 megapixel ultra wide angle camera and a 5 megapixel macro camera for close-up images

And with the a51 5g with a quad camera setup with a 48 megapixel main camera a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle camera a 5 megapixel dev sensing camera and a 5 megapixel macro camera so despite the a51 5g having that depth sensing camera we also do get portrait mode with the revel 5g as well so really technically from a feature standpoint having the depth sensing camera with the a515g doesn't really give you any extra

Benefits compared to the revel now here's how things look with the main cameras on both devices then with both phones we can switch over to the ultra wide angle cameras to fit a lot more content into the frame it does seem like the ultra wide camera with the a515g is wider though compared to what we're getting with the revel 5g then with both phones you can go over to the more tab to access the macro cameras and then again with the macro cameras you can get very close up for nice detailed pictures

Now it does seem like the macro camera with the revel 5g is more versatile and does work out a little bit better and then flipping over to the front-facing cameras on both phones we do have a special feature with the a51 5g that does allow you to crop out a little bit for your selfies so if you want to take a group selfie you can fit more into the frame but then with both phones we can head over to portrait mode and then get those nice blurred out backgrounds so

I know that many people are into this i know that i personally do like to take front-facing selfies that do feature portrait mode so if you are one of those people that also likes that feature then you are gonna be getting it here with both devices now there are some pretty big differences when it comes to the processors with both phones now one similarity is that they do both feature six gigabytes of ram but with the t-mobile revel 5g we have the qualcomm snapdragon 765 and then this variant of the galaxy

A515g features the samsung exynos 980 processor that is the processor that you will get with the various carrier variants of the a51 5g except from verizon and also if you buy the a515g unlocked you will get the exynos 980 as well now both phones do give you the ability to take video at 4k at 30fps and both devices also feature very large 4 500 million power internal batteries now one difference though with the revel 5g we do get support for reverse charging so in theory you could put a

Double-sided usb-c cable into this phone and then plug it into another phone and then the battery in the revel 5g can actually charge other devices so that definitely is pretty interesting but now that we've gone over the specifications of these two devices let's now compare the hardware so i already talked quite a bit about the front panels here i would say that in general the a51 5g does have the more appealing and more modern design

Compared to the revel 5g but on the other hand i don't think the revel 5g is a bad looking phone now the build quality with these two devices is a bit different so with the revel 5g it's all plastic minus the display of course which is glass and with the galaxy a51 5g the display of course is glass as well and we have a material called glastic on the back which is a plastic material that does look like glass but then also with the a515g we do have a metal band

Running around the sides of the phone it certainly does make it feel a bit more premium but taking a look at the left side with the revel 5g we have just the slot for the micro sd card and sim card and on the left of the galaxy a515g we have nothing then taking a look at the right side of both phones we have the volume button and also the power button then up top on the two devices with the revel 5g we have the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and microphone and with the a51 5g we have the

Microphone and we have the slot for the micro sd card and sim card then taking a look at the bottom of the two phones with both devices we have the microphone speaker and usbc port but then with the a515g we do have the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack now i personally do prefer having the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack on the bottom of the a51 compared to the top with the revel 5g and then taking a look at the back of both devices we have definitely some

Differences here and similarities so we have the camera modules and then with the revel 5g with the fingerprint sensor on the back and then as far as the look and materials go as i mentioned earlier with the a515g we do have glass stick here and it is very glossy and it does pick up a lot of fingerprints and the revel 5g does also pick up fingerprints but we do have this really cool kind of gradient look to it with the t-mobile magenta so i

Personally prefer the way that the revel 5g looks in the back compared to the a515g now i did do a benchmark test with both devices and here are the scores now with the revel i got a single core score of 624 and a multi-core score of one nine four four and then with the a51 5g i got a single core score of four eight nine and a multi-core score of one eight one six so without a doubt we are getting a faster processor with the revel 5g compared to the samsung galaxy a515g

Let's now do a speed test comparison between these two phones so let's start by pulling up the camera apps on both so one two three go and it seems like it was about a tie with both devices let's now pull up google chrome on both phones one two three go and again it looks like it was about a tie which is pretty interesting let's now go to yahoo.com one two three go and it looks like the a51 5g was a little bit quicker at pulling up yahoo

Let's now go to endgadget.com one two three go and it looks like the revel 5g was quicker at pulling up and gadget however the ad did appear a little bit faster on the a51 5g now you can see in the side by side this really does show you the differences in display quality because you can see with the revel 5g the display is a little bit darker overall and that's partially due to the viewing angles being better with the 851 5g

But another difference as well is that more of the single frame does fit into the display on the a51 5g as we're able to see less of the second image on the revel scrolling is smooth on both phones so definitely not a problem there so you're gonna have a good experience browsing the web on either of these two devices let's now go to this article one two three go and it looks like in this test the a515g was first to pull up the article

However the revel 5g was not too far behind so definitely very interesting there i mean based on the internal specifications and also the benchmark score i thought the revel 5g would be a lot faster in this test but it seems like the a515g definitely did a good job catching up and if anything the a515g was a little bit faster so i would say it's pretty much a tie i personally have more confidence in the long-term reliability of the

Snapdragon 765 compared to the exynos 980 because qualcomm does have a better track record than exynos when it comes to creating processors with longevity but i certainly don't think the exynos 980 is bad so in conclusion which of these two devices is the better choice of the two well i would say that both phones are good devices definitely with the a51 5g i do prefer the display so if you are someone that wants to use your phone for watching videos for

Example or browsing the web or really doing anything that involves looking at your phone's screen then i would say the a51 5g does do a better job compared to the revel 5g but on the other hand the revel 5g is definitely a very capable device and has a lot here to offer so i would say that it really comes down to the prices that you can get these two phones at i believe that the a51 5g is usually quite a bit more expensive than the revel 5g and one of the noteworthy

Things about the rival 5g is that it did launch with a 399 msrp making it one of the most affordable 5g phones that you can currently get however i know that they are constantly running different promotions like buy one get one free for example with the a51 5g that could give you different ways to save money so again it really comes down to the promotions being offered at your carrier so i definitely recommend looking into both of these phones but this is kevin here this is the t-mobile revel 5g

Versus the samsung galaxy a51 5g i hope you enjoyed this video and if you did give it a thumbs up
