Samsung’s Galaxy A51 is the latest addition to Samsung’s mid-range smartphone. If you’ reading this article right now. We’re gonna be taking a closer look at what Samsung is offering in the highly anticipated yet low costing  Samsung Galaxy A51. And find out if it’s right for you so let’s get started.

Samsung's Galaxy A51 is the latest addition to Samsung


Samsung Galaxy A51 Price

Starting with price currently, Samsung Galaxy  A51 shown here with 4Gb of RAM and 128Gb of storage is around $300. But many retailers here in the US have been falsely advertising 6 gigabyte RAM models. And shipping devices with 4gigabytes of RAM instead so definitely keep this into consideration when shopping for this phone.

Samsung Galaxy A51 Specification

Another interesting discovery I came across is that even though this is a GSM phone meaning it shouldn’t be compatible with those using Verizon and Sprint. I’ve been using my Verizon sim with this device without any issues at all. But back to the device itself, we have a very lightweight plastic-backed device with colors bouncing all over the place. When put in the right light on the right side of the phone, we have our power and volume buttons. While the left side is buttonless but houses the SIM card tray near the top of the phone. Which can hold two SIM cards and a micro SD card slot for additional storage very nice, and a type-c port headphone jack and the Samsung Galaxy A51 primary speaker are found on the bottom.



We have our people front-facing camera here, which might look like a disturbance. It is significantly smaller than the one found on the Galaxy Note10 plus. with the phone’s raised to wake feature turned on as well by the time you pick up your device and look at it. you are already at your home screen and ready to go. you can also add the in-display fingerprint reader right to the alway son display. Which gets you into your phone just as quickly.

Samsung Galaxy A51 Performance

Now in terms of quickness and the phone’s overall performance. I never had a moment of major inconvenience or dissatisfaction with the phone. In day to day use for the past week when opening and running any of my usual applications despite this phone not having the latest and greatest flagship processor when side-by-side with my note 10 plus. Of course, things will take an extra millisecond to boot up and occasionally there will be a small hiccup in an interface here and there. But overall this phone met all of my expectations. I had for it in daily use which consists of quickly getting into the phone watching YouTube, playing some games, checking emails and browsing the web, texting and calling and listening to music.

Sadly the Samsung Galaxy A51 does not have a dual speaker setup. Which you may have been hoping for but honestly, the single bottom-firing speaker was perfectly good. On end and it gets plenty loud which is great the speaker on top will be used for your phone calls. And all of the calls I made and receive for the past week sounded crystal clear with no issues at all. But it didn’t take long for me to start seeing small pieces of debris getting caught up in that smaller speaker. So it’s definitely something to keep in mind for in the long term.

Samsung Galaxy A51 Battery

Now heavy usage is no challenge for the Samsung Galaxy A51 with its four thousand milliamp power battery. Which will always get you through your day three hours of watching YouTube only took twenty percent of the battery. This equals out to potentially fifteen hours of YouTube on a single charge, and a half-hour of gaming took only five percent of the battery. Meaning there is plenty of room for heavy usage and still, have lots of juice left for your basic tasks. And fast charging is here on the Samsung Galaxy A51 which will get you back up in the 70%. So range after an hour of charging and up to full and about an hour and a half.

Samsung Galaxy A51 Camera

Another impressive area of this phone considering its price point is its camera. The offerings on the rear we have a 48-megapixel main camera. Which takes great shots a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens. This definitely satisfies the need for capturing more on your photos a 5-megapixel depth sensor, which does a great job of focusing on your subject and blurring everything else out.  And a 5-megapixel macro lens which allows you to get really to a subject for detailed shots. In video footage, I found I could easily get really close to subjects without any issues at all. And the cameras will automatically adjust as needed relatively quickly. And we also have some video stabilization features here.


In addition to filming 4k on the rear and front-facing cameras now that front-facing camera has a 32-megapixel lens. Which takes good selfies in my testing and it also features a wider angle option itself to fit someone else in the frame with you. We also have our features seen on other Samsung’s and flagships on the market. Like the Auto-recognition of what you are taking a photo of in addition to recommendations of ways to make your photos come out better.


We also have the night mode shooting here on the Samsung  Galaxy A51. Which works great you can take photos in almost complete darkness, and they will come out looking like the photo is never taken at night or in the dark. You will have a much more grainy finish on these pictures. But having a picture is better than having no picture at all. When you want to capture something and the cherry on top here is this device coming with one UI 2.0 installed. which features much quality of life improvements like the fingerprint sensor added to the always-on display. Smoother animations when navigating through your device my favorite personally being able to quickly switch over to previously use apps as shown here and improvements to many apps you use every day for a more seamless user experience.
