- Design and Build Quality
Samsung Galaxy M51 kind of looks like your usual Samsung smartphone with the plastic back design. We’ve seen this in quite a few phones.
Samsung M51 has a side mounted fingerprint scanner similar to the one in the M31s. The M51 has all usual ports and single speaker on the bottom and the dual sim + dedicated micro SD slot.
Now apart from the massive battery and the Snapdragon chipset, there is also this really nice display. This is a 6.7 inch super Amoled+ display which has an infinity o design.
This is a very good looking display, it’s very bright and it looks crisp and vibrant and just watching anything on it looks great.
There’s Snapdragon 730G inside the Galaxy M51 along with up to 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and this should result in reliable performance. I’ve noticed that the 730G performs really well here.
The usual tasks work out fine obviously but it was nice to see the phone handle gaming well. If you play COD Mobile at very high graphics, very high frame rates, the gameplay experience will still very very good.
Obviously a longer run with the phone will give us a better idea of the performance here but so far, it’s been positive.
Apart from that, when it comes to software there’s OneUI 2.1 on board on top of Android 10 and it’s got all the great OneUI features.
As for the pre-installed apps, there are a few microsoft apps that you can uninstall, there are also these apps and but you can uninstall every single one of them. So that’s good.
Another area where the Galaxy M51 seems promising is on the camera front. You get the quad camera setup on the back featuring a 64 MP IMX682 primary camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 5 MP macro lens and a 5 MP depth sensor.
This seems like a very capable quad camera setup and the photos taken from this look good with nice details and overall good exposure. The IMX682 sensor on the M31s does very well so i’m hoping for the same with the M51.
Along with the main camera the ultra wide angle lens is also pretty good. It comes with some really good colors and I like it. For the front camera, here is a 32 MP camera and it also takes good enough photos.
- Crazy 7,000 mAh battery
This is a phone that packs in that insane battery. I mean I remember when samsung launched the Galaxy M30 with a 5000 mAh battery. I was like wow! that is good and then Samsung went ahead and launched the Galaxy M31 with a big 6,000 mAh battery and it was awesome.
Even today, 6,000 mAh batteries in phones is pretty rare and now samsung has done something I wasn’t really expecting. They launched the Galaxy M51 with a 7,000 mAh battery, it’s crazy and no other phone even comes close.
Samsung said that it can last more than 2 days on a single charge on continuous usage and it’s kind of insane.
I also like the fact that Samsung has put in a 25W fast charger with the M51, this is the same charger that you get with the samsung flagships. This charger takes the phone from 10% to 100% in just one hour 15 minutes which is great considering the massive battery size.
That was pretty much everything about the new Galaxy M51 and obviously the biggest highlight of this phone is the 7,000 mAh battery. I really hope that this starts as a trend of packing more and more capacity in batteries.
So that we no longer require power banks. Anyway, the Galaxy M51 is not only about the 7,000 mAh battery, it seems like a pretty well-rounded phone with the snapdragon 730G chipset, the 64 MP camera setup, the super amoled display and the 25W fast charging.
