Samsung Galaxy A51 5G Review

Score: 10.82/10

Samsung Galaxy A51 5G is a breath-taking device launched in 2020, provisioned with a 6.5 inches display, a great 2200 megahertz Octa-Core processor, a 48 megapixels back camera and a 32 megapixels front facing camera. Let's take a closer view of what this phone can give us.

This phone body design uses Plastic and Aluminum . The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G is thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.34". The Samsung Galaxy A51 5G just has 6.26" long, but it is still able to fit a a 6.5 inches screen. Samsung didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 6.6 ounces phone. This phone is only for sale in prism cube black color.

The A51 5G is powered by a Samsung Exynos 980 system chip, backed up by a high performance 2.2 GHz Octa-Core processor with a large 6 GB of RAM memory. An excellent feature of this cellphone is its astonishing 128 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, allowing the user to install tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about running out of space.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 32 MP front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera has a 2 aperture so it can capture detailed pictures even in low light conditions. It is also able to film 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow-motion videos up to 480 frames per second.

The A51 5G has a spectacular 1080 x 2400 6.5-inches screen, giving this device a great graphic quality.

The A51 5G counts with WiFi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra fast data connection, LTE-A 4G super quick connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G network) and fast 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone also features plenty of cool characteristics such as Fingerprint Scanner, Facial recognition biometrics, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ), GPS and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone features a 4500 mAh large Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this phone running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to lose capacity, although having 4500 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before that happens.

Samsung is offering the A51 5G for $ 500, which is not so cheap for a phone this level. No matter whether you want a work cellphone, are looking for a cellphone to mostly use social networks, will use it for gaming or are an amateur photographer, this phone is probably a very good choice for you. When buying this cellphone you will also get A to C USB Cable, Quick Start Guide, Wall Adapter, SIM Pin/Ejector and Terms & Conditions .
