Samsung Galaxy A51 review: almost

5 ਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

Samsung's new Galaxy A51 costs $399 and makes a big 6.5-inch screen affordable. It has a 48-megapixel camera, 4,000mAh battery, and is part of a big push to make Samsung's most popular phone line worldwide more common in the US. Samsung's mantra is that it has an "awesome screen, awesome camera, long-lasting battery life," but not all of those claims are true, as you'll see in this review.

Amoled screen plus all day battery is only good but LCD screen with 4 hour battery life on iphone se is great. Please stop reviewing phones

You're being too picky. You are saying it's bad just because it is inferior to samsung's $1400 phone.

I think if you're in that price range already it's older brother the A71 is better if your willing to shed a little more for a little more perks yet still not pay much

He's also wrong about the part that he can't trust samsung to update this phone for 2-3 years but when this phone launched samsung promised 3 years of updates so he is wrong on that depart

It's a good Samsung phone for a cheap price FYI you can increase the speed of the Galaxy A51 by turning on your developer options go to all three animation speeds & select .5x for each one & the phone will be super fast

This dude complains about it having only a 1080p amoled screen and lasting all day but at the same time he raves about how the iPhone SE lasts 3 hours and has a 720p IPS screen and calls it "great"

What is the refresh rate, I googled it before and one source said 90Hz and another said 60Hz. 60 is good enough but 90 would be better.

Hey , i totally love your videos i swear , and i live in lebanon which isn't helping me buying a new flagship phone like that one due to the increasong dollar rate in my country with economic crisis . I thought , since i'm a loyal subscriber who sticked out with your videos since you reviewed similar stuff in the past , would you help me upgrade my samsung A5 2016 to a new A50 / A51 through sending me one by any chance ?? contact : @nxziiih on insta Please & Thank you ❤

Man, worse review ever, the day I find a reviewer that reviews a phone without comparing it to the damn iPhone and stops wanting an android to work like an iPhone I will like. all of these reviewers are just the same, always comparing any phone with iPhones, and making other phones look bad, is getting really tiring. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

Camera for the average consumer that is not looking for the most expensive phone, is great. I don't think they are looking at white balance and shadows. As long as they can take a nice picture of their family vacations, kids playing, etc, I'm sure the buyer will be more than satisfied.

I Purchased A51. I love the front & rear camera, bigger screen tall narrow, 128gb storage, 4000 mah battery, great phone for a mid range. If this guy wants something AWESOME go get a S series or Note, DUH!!!

It's NOT a $400 phone, I just bought it for around $310 and for that price it's a really good buy, screen is fantastic, cameras are pretty good and battery life is also amazing, the processor also gets the job done.

I have used samsung phones (galaxy s5 and s7), they last for long time but they were extremely slow. If the phone doesn't respond quickly when needed, it's not worth buying.
