Samsung Galaxy M51 Review — Brilliant display and long battery life
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Galaxy M51, is good mid-range smartphone from Samsung in the M series. It has good cameras, brilliant Infinity-O AMOLED display and whopping 7000mAh battery with 25W fast charging. No Glass back, lack of splash-resistant body and some software features like Samsung Pay and Knox security are few things that needs to be compromised.

Samsung Galaxy M51 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Samsung Galaxy M51 is a bang for a buck. This is everything you need from a mid-range device that costs Rs.25,000. It has a stunning Super AMOLED Plus display and a massive 7000 mAh battery which none of the rivals are offering right now. In addition to this, Samsung has gone for Snapdragon 730G this time and thanks to that you get a major performance boost when compared to other mid-range devices by Samsung that comes with the Exynos chip.

Samsung Galaxy M51 Review: One Plus above the rest!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Samsung Galaxy M 51 at starting price of Rs 24,999 is a smartphone worth buying if you want a great display, amazing camera, humongous battery and smooth performance. The only thing which I feel could have been better is the speaker output.

Samsung Galaxy M51 review: An all-round midrange phone that M-series needed
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 24,999 for the base 6GB RAM variant, the Galaxy M51 is an all-rounder that the Samsung M series needed in 2020. It might not have the best design but it is a solid smartphone with a compact form factor, which is a big deal, considering that it has a mammoth 7,000 mAh battery and a 6.7-inch display. The Samsung Galaxy M51 is an obvious choice if you are in the market for a midrange smartphone from a reputable brand. However, if you are not averse to Chinese brands like Realme, OPPO and OnePlus, there are smartphones like the Realme 7 Pro (review), OPPO F17 Pro (review) and OnePlus Nord (review) which you might like to check before finalising your pick.

Samsung Galaxy M51 review: Great specs for the price, but limited software
Source: Sam Mobile English
On the hardware front, the Galaxy M51 is splendid and easily replaces the Galaxy A71, which was already an excellent phone, as the best upper mid-range device available from Samsung. The monstrous battery life makes it even better than the A71, in fact, and if the spec sheet is all that matters to you and the Galaxy M51 fits your budget, you can buy it with your eyes closed. You won’t regret it.

Comment

Model:

As far as the processor is concerned, the Galaxy M51 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor and runs on One UI based on Android 10. The smartphone comes with 6 GB of RAM along with 128 GB of built-in storage that can be expanded by up to 512 GB via a microSD card. As for the camera, this device carries a quad-camera set-up with a 64MP primary camera with f/1.8 aperture, followed by a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens (123 degrees) with f/2.2 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 5MP macro lens. In addition, it is worth noting that the rear camera setup has autofocus. On the other side, there is a centre-mounted punch-hole cut out 32MP selfie shooter. The phone also has a bunch of shooting modes such as Live focus, background blur for selfies and many more for users to explore.

It has always been known that the battery capacity and battery life are a plus point of the M series. Having said that, it is undeniable that Samsung is taking that to the next level with the Galaxy M51. This device has been equipped with a massive 7,000mAh battery. This is definitely a great jump from the M-series’ standard 6,000mAh capacity, and it is certainly much bigger than what all of Samsung’s flagships released this year carry. In terms of its charging front, the smartphone comes with support for 25W fast-charging technology via a Type-C interface. The large battery definitely creates a premium user experience with extended longevity and reduced frequent recharging.

In terms of its connectivity options, the Samsung Galaxy M51 comes with Bluetooth v5.00 and also a single USB Type-C port. The sensors on the phone include an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, a compass/magnetometer, a gyroscope and a proximity sensor. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy M51 is definitely a great phone to be explored, but the choice of owning one depends on the choice and need of the users.
