Reviews for the Motorola Moto G51

80.2% Motorola Moto G51 5G smartphone review: Do the fast display and 5G make it worth buying? | Notebookcheck
The 120 Hz display in the Motorola Moto G51 5G should ensure a smooth operation, and it could also be interesting for gamers. The phone also comes with 5G and a large battery for around 200 Euros (~$227). However, the handset is not quite the perfect all-round package...
68% Motorola Moto G51 5G review
Source: GSM Arena English
Overall, the Moto G51 is a well-balanced 5G solution, especially if it makes its way to the US market. There are only a few 5G-enabled options in this price range, so the G51 sits comfortably in that spot. That is, of course, in case 5G is top-priority. Sadly, 5G still isn't a thing in most countries, so if you are willing to "settle" for the 4G LTE network for the next couple of years, other models might accommodate your needs better. The long battery life, the big, bright and smooth display and the adequate camera performance are nice to have, but they aren't enough to make the G51 stand out.

75% Moto G51 5G review: The modest mid-ranger you can buy
Source: India Today English
Moto G51 handles the basic chores pretty well. The clean software experience is what you should get the phone for. Your notifications' panel with forever remain free of spammy ad links because the phone doesn't come with bloatware. The phone is especially good for watching movies or streaming web series. It is also a decent choice for gaming as the phone didn't overheat even after hour-long gaming sessions. The battery life is also good and lasts you a little over a day. Now coming to the downsides, the phone comes with an LCD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The display is bright but not one of the best you will find in the market. The low-light camera performance of the smartphone could have been better. If these points are okay with you, then the Moto G51 will not disappoint you in any way.

Motorola Moto G51 5G Review – The Best Budget 5G You Can Get?
Source: Cashify English
The Motorola Moto G51 5G is a new smartphone from Motorola that joins the popular G series family. It’s a budget-friendly phone with a starting price of Rs 14,999, and it rivals in the same price range as phones from Redmi, Realme, and POCO. On paper, the G51 has some amazing specifications, including a 120Hz FHD+ display, a 5,000mAh battery, and a stock Android experience. Though the phone cannot be considered the best gaming smartphone due to the low RAM and storage space, gamers will surely have issues over time. In this device review, I’ll talk about whether it’s worth the asking price and about how it compares to the competition.

80% Moto G51 Review: It’s the Little Things
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
With the Moto G51, Motorola has paid close attention to the smaller things, those finer details that one may not notice when glancing through the specs of the phone online, but become obvious once you actually use the smartphone. There's a quality 120Hz refresh rate display with good resistance to fingerprints. Yes, the phone is bulky, but you also get handy features such as an IP52 rating. There's also no annoying preinstalled third-party apps like on many competing smartphones and the near-stock software is lean and fun to use. Still, there are a couple of things that Moto G51 doesn't do as well as the competition. Realme's Narzo 30 5G (Review) shoots better quality photos and is also better at gaming. It's also lighter at 185g. If more internal storage is something you crave, then the Moto G51 might be a deal breaker, as it only has 64GB of storage, which is expandable but at the cost of losing the second SIM slot. The Redmi Note 10T (Review), Realme Narzo 30 5G and the Poco M3 Pro 5G (Review) all have a 6GB RAM variant with 128GB of internal storage, which make them easier to recommend.

70% Moto G51 5G review: sticking to the stock Android roots
Source: 91mobiles English
There are question marks about the phone’s low-light camera performance, the stuttering 120Hz screen, along with slow charging speeds. However, I believe that the Moto G51 is definitely a phone worthy of consideration. It offers a clean software experience that isn’t bogged down by unnecessary bloatware and themes, and Motorola has a good history of sending updates on its Moto G series phones regularly as well. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 480+ chipset appears to offer a competitive level of performance and the battery life is excellent. In the overall scheme of things, the Moto G51 appears as a new and reasonably compelling choice in the affordable segment.

80% Moto G51 First Impressions: An Affordable Moto G with 5G
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The strongest selling points of Motorola's recent phones are their near-stock Android software and IP ratings. The Moto G51 builds on this and offers the new Snapdragon 480+ processor, a 120Hz refresh-rate display, and 5G, which seems good enough for a budget 5G contender. Its Rs. 14,999 price tag also seems quite competitive. So how does Motorola stack up against existing budget 5G players including Redmi and Realme? Stay tuned for my detailed review.

Motorola Moto G51 Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Motorola Moto G51 smartphone’s main selling point would be its pure Android interface. Otherwise, the overall experience with this phone wouldn’t let you down. As per the price specs, the ratio is great as you’re getting 5G support, decent camera setup, robust performance, long battery life, and much more in this phone. However, you will find a better alternative in the same price range that offers the same 5G connectivity. We like to point out the flaws in mid-level photography and slow charging. But if you don’t support the presence of custom UI, the Moto G51 is worth recommending to you. However, if this device is not available in your home market, checking out the Oppo K9s in the same price range would be a great choice.

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
