Samsung Galaxy A51: Price, Design, and  Specifications in 2019.

We can say that the Samsung Galaxy A series, which has been extensively renewed last year, has performed well. All the members of this series, from the lowest level to the highest level, attracted a lot of attention in our country. Samsung Galaxy A50 was also one of the most popular members. Now, Samsung aims to continue the interest with the A51. We have been experiencing this Android phone for several weeks, combining a large and high quality screen with a stylish looking and useful body and four rear cameras.  In this article, we are we will provide you with a quick review regarding the A51.

Design and Display.

Many of the Samsung phones released in the second half of 2019 have many commonalities in terms of design. We see that the Galaxy A51 is among these phones. The back of the phone comes in a design that Samsung calls "prismatic", like the Galaxy A30s we have reviewed before. When you hold the phone to the light, it looks like a prism breaks the light and separates it into colors. In addition to this, triangles in different textures are created with intersecting lines on the back. The phone has colors like black, white, blue and pink. Although the black model we have seems heavy and classic, it is successful in presenting the prism effect.

There are four cameras on the back, in the upper left corner. This camera is placed in a rectangular module. There is also a flash in the module. It also protrudes slightly outward. When you place the phone on a surface, there is no such thing as unstable the phone due to the camera module.

Galaxy A51, which follows the Galaxy A50, one of the popular Samsung phones of last year, in terms of design and material, is a phone that is a combination of glass and plastic. The sides and back are covered with plastic, and on the front is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display glass. Samsung has also placed a screen protector film on the front of the phone from the very beginning. However, this film is not very durable, air bubbles started to form on the edges after a short time and we had to remove it and throw it away.

While plastic is at the forefront, the Samsung Galaxy A51 feels like a solid phone. The rounded corners and the back that curves towards the edges also soften the design of the phone. The 7.9 mm thick body and thin screen bezel also contribute to the ergonomics of the phone. While it has a 6.5-inch screen, it's relatively easy to hold and use the phone with one hand. The selfie camera placed in the center hole at the top of the screen also occupies a very small area. Samsung calls this type of display Infinite-O. We saw this design for the first time in the Note 10 series. This was the front camera design preferred in many Samsung phones that came out later.

The A51 has a USB-C port, speaker, microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom edge. There is a second microphone at the top. There is the power button on the right and the volume keys above it. On the left side, the SIM card and microSD card tray are placed slightly towards the top. Galaxy A51 has dual SIM card support. Moreover, you don't have to sacrifice the microSD card slot to use two lines.

As far as display is concerned, Samsung Galaxy A51 comes with 6.5 Super AMOLED display which is called Infinity-O due to the snap of the front facing camera. The screen occupies 87.4% of the front of the device. Samsung Galaxy A51 has FHD+ resolution (2400x1080)  with 405 PPI. The text and graphics are clear and sharp.  The color vividness of the screen is high and the brightness is at an optimum level. Viewing angles are also wide. There is no problem when using it outside. We can say that this screen is sufficient for watching videos on YouTube or Netflix. Its thin and long structure allows you to see more text or text on the screen, especially when browsing websites. The same is true when viewing e-books or PDF documents. In short, the Galaxy A51's screen offers a more than adequate visual experience.

The only speaker that the A51 has is not exceeding the average. The sound output does not get too loud. At the same time, the bass and surround sound effect is not very strong. Still, at its loudest volume, the treble is not bothersome. Due to the placement of the speaker, it is highly likely that you will block this, especially when playing games. Finding a 3.5mm headphone jack is good news. In this way, you can enjoy music or movies more efficiently with the headphones you want. The sound quality of the headphones out of the box is average, usually works for you. However, if you are a little more sensitive about sound and want a quality sound experience, then the options are wide thanks to the presence of the 3.5mm headphone jack. Let's note that there is also Dolby Atmos support on the sound side. This will provide you with a better sound experience if you want to watch movies.

Operating System and Processor.

Samsung Galaxy A51 powered by the Samsung Exynos 9611. It comes with 8 cores and 10nm build.

As for the A51 GPU, The GPU is the Mali-G72 MP3. In Geekbench 5 the CPU scored 346 points for single-core and 1306 points for multicores.

 Also, PUBG started with high settings, and the smoothness was good. As the A71 the device comes with Game Booster mode, which increases the performance of the device for gaming. With this mode, you can increase the performance, save energy, or increase the performance while saving energy. This mode lets you know the temperature of the device and the RAM. You can also take screenshots or even record the screen while playing.

According to the operating system, The A51 runs on Android 10 with One UI 2.0 from Samsung. There are no radical changes in the One UI 2 version compared to the first version released last year. Nevertheless, there are some differences, including the changes made in screen movements, and we explain them in detail in the written and video content we have prepared for One UI 2.

One of the innovations we see in Galaxy A51 is the Edge screen. The component we've seen in curved-screen Samsung phones before and we haven't used much is now available in flat-screen phones like the Galaxy A51. With this feature, you can place a drawer in a corner of the screen that is convenient, and quickly access your favorite contacts or applications. On the other hand, lighting the edges of the screen in the color you want with the notifications can be considered a feature that you will like and use.

Screen gestures have been rearranged with One UI 2, and you can take advantage of that on Galaxy A51 as well. With the first setup, Android's classic navigation controls will appear at the bottom of the screen. However, if you want to remove this bar and save screen space, you can change the navigation option in Settings and use screen gestures. You can return to the Home screen by dragging your finger from the bottom of the screen to the middle, and you can access the multitasking screen by making the same gesture and holding your finger in the middle of the screen without lifting it. You can also go back by dragging the sides of the screen towards the center.

Dark mode is also a feature that comes with One UI 2 and can be enjoyed by Galaxy A51 users. In addition to painting the background of the user interface elements black, this feature can be actively used in installed Samsung applications and Google applications.

Galaxy A51 also comes loaded with various Samsung applications. Some applications are also optional to install. We also see Google's classic Android apps and various Microsoft apps installed after the initial setup. In addition to Google Play Store, you can download apps or games from Samsung's app and content store Galaxy Store.

Security and Ports.

For security, Samsung Galaxy A51 comes with  the in-screen optical fingerprint reader as the most secure method in Galaxy A51. The fingerprint sensor generally works quickly and accurately. You can switch the screen lock in 1-2 seconds. If convenience is more important to you than security, you can take advantage of facial recognition with the help of the front camera. It also supports the same classical unlocking methods which the A71 has such as pattern and passcode.

Battery and Charging.

Samsung Galaxy A51 comprises a powerful Li-Po battery with a capacity of 4000mAh. The phone allows fast charging.  

Although the processor is kept the same, the battery life is slightly shorter than its predecessors due to the slightly larger screen. However, under normal intensity use, the A51 manages to deliver a battery performance that easily exceeds a day. If you take advantage of the phone's power saving mode when needed but also use it sparingly, you will be able to get over two days.

With the 15W charging adapter included in the box, around 35 percent charge is reached in half an hour. It takes between 2 and 2 and a half hours to fully charge the battery.

Samsung Galaxy A51 has Quad rear cameras, 48MP (wide with f\2.0), 12MP ( ultrawide with f\2.2), 5MP ( macro with f\2.2) and 5MP( depth with f\2.2, with also HDR and LED. On the front you see a 32MP wide front-facing camera with f\2.2.

In still, by day, the Samsung A51 presents a beautiful photo, very colorful, perhaps a little too much, but also with a strong smoothing. It is all the more visible in front of the Mi 9T Pro which, despite a slightly too pronounced exposure of the scene, gives a much more natural shot.

at night, the A51 rises much lower in sensitivity than its Chinese sidekick, which produces a duller photo and, strangely, with digital noise, certainly because of less post-processing. The photo of the Mi 9T Pro is better exposed, more colorful and its smoothing equivalent to that of the A51.

the daytime ultra-wide angle of the A51 is more flattering in the area of ​​color, but the rendering is a bit blurry and the software processing very much smoothes the image. At Xiaomi, the level of detail is better and the smoothing much less.

at night, the result is unusable in both cases. The photo taken from the A51 is covered in digital noise and barely allows us to guess the different objects that make up our scene.

On the front,  the photos are of good quality, although by default face smoothing is on - and it is very pronounced. The device manages backlighting well and adapts the exposure correctly.

 the portrait mode on the Galaxy A51 is pretty convincing, the clipping is not strongly pronounced and even manages to perfectly encompass the most complicated details, like body hair or hair. There are obviously a few hiccups, but nothing horrible. There is also the possibility of taking group selfies or modifying the bokeh a posteriori .

For the video part, it is possible on the A51 to shoot up to 4K at 30 frames per second or in 1080p at 30, 60 or 120 fps. No optical stabilization here, but electronic stabilization (EIS).

the Samsung Galaxy A51 is a qualified mid-segment phone. Perhaps we have to say that the Exynos 9611 processor and its accompanying hardware package may fall behind the phones in the same price segment and even cheaper than the A51. However, in terms of other factors, Samsung's phone seems to compete with its rivals easily.

Even though it's made of plastic, the Galaxy A51 remains solid and high quality. It also has a stylish design and it definitely doesn't look ordinary. The AMOLED screen offers sufficient visual quality. At the same time, the wide viewing area also increases practicality. The quality of the speaker is not above average, but having a 3.5mm headphone jack can be considered an advantage on the audio side. Its performance is enough to meet daily tasks. You will also experience an optimal gaming experience. Battery performance is also good. It is also loaded with Android 10 and One UI 2, which is an important plus. One UI is a convenient interface that also allows the A51 to comfortably communicate with other devices in the Samsung ecosystem.

On the camera side, we can say that the Galaxy A51 will not give a headache. It may not take very perfect photos, but it will meet your needs for special occasions or moments you want to immortalize. In video shooting, you will be satisfied with the shots you take in 1080p mode and with Super stable mode on.

The Galaxy A51 is a good mid-range phone, but for those looking for higher performance, it is possible to find cheaper options in the market. However, you may occasionally see Galaxy A51 discount campaigns. In this case, you can evaluate the idea of ​​buying the smartphone.  What do you think? Have you lied an eye on the A51?
