When the machine in query falls beneath 30K, we mechanically swing our heads in direction of the OnePlus Nord for comparability. That is the impression that the resurgent worth proposition of OnePlus has created for itself within the Indian market lately. Samsung aimed to vary that and with the Galaxy M51, it form of has.
With a large 7,000 mAh battery, the Galaxy M51 deserves to be the subject of debate. That is the one smartphone providing such an enormous battery in not simply the mid-range, however throughout all worth segments. Clearly, this can compel some consumers to go for this telephone. However what about others? What else does this smartphone provide that may persuade fence-sitters when a rival just like the OnePlus Nord begins at Rs 24,999, provides a 90Hz refresh charge show, 33W quick charging and 48 MP triple digital camera?
Cumbersome, bland design
Wearing a plain blue ‘glasstic’ materials, the Galaxy M51 clearly seems to be very plasticky. Samsung has saved the look quite simple — boring, even — with no gradient, only a plain blue again that’s susceptible to scratches and smudges. It was virtually made for a silicone case, however as at all times, Samsung would not embody one within the field. It could have been good. There’s an oblong quad digital camera setup on the again tucked properly within the top-left nook. It would not protrude a lot or look awkward, which I like.
The Galaxy M51 contains a side-mounted fingerprint scanner as a substitute of an in-display scanner like its rivals. It responds shortly and it’s positioned good. However there have been a number of situations the place I unintentionally touched the sensor whereas holding it, unlocking the telephone, so you’ll have to bear with that or get used to it. I do know I didn’t.
The smartphone is form of cumbersome (213 gm) which is predicted because it holds a 7,000 mAh battery, however it’s nonetheless useful. It will not slip out of your fingers, due to the glasstic materials. In case you are planning on utilizing it with one hand, you in all probability ought to decrease your expectations, as a result of as a result of heavy weight and tall dimension (it has a 6.7-inch show), the thought of single-handed use is fairly far-fetched. On the underside edge, you get a Kind-C port for charging, 3.5mm headphone jack and single bottom-firing speaker.
So long as you aren’t somebody who hates utilizing monumental telephones, you might be good to go. The design lacks oomph, so you’ll have to stay with that too.
There are downsides to a big telephone, however the execs are clearly laborious to disregard. Though, dimension and weight had been lower than cozy for me, watching Schitt’s Creek on the Galaxy M51 was an absolute deal with! The 6.7-inch AMOLED show performed to its strengths and confirmed vivid colors and sharp pictures. It runs a 1,080 x 2,400 pixel decision. Though I might’ve appreciated it extra if the punch gap digital camera was positioned in a nook and never within the centre, it wasn’t an enormous downside. The bezels are slim and glossy that add to the viewing expertise. With 420 nits brightness, out of doors visibility can even not disappoint you.
A typical 64 MP quad digital camera
The smartphone contains a quad digital camera setup that homes a 64 MP major sensor, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5 MP macro lens and a 5 MP depth sensor. That is much like what its predecessor, the Galaxy M31s had.
Simply as Sheldon mentioned in his Galaxy M31s evaluate, the digital camera setup performs fairly effectively. With ample element and good color accuracy, the smartphone managed to seize good high quality pictures. As for portrait pictures, the sting detection, colors and readability remained intact. Nonetheless, I did discover that it blurred hair strands whereas producing portrait pictures, however this isn’t a deal-breaker. The smartphone additionally manages to deal with the article shortly, not like many different telephones that I’ve examined.
Issues come up if you attempt to click on footage in low-light settings. Though the color steadiness remained good, noise and hazy particulars had been seen.
Once I in contrast the digital camera with the Vivo V20, the latter managed to provide extra element and sharper pictures than the Galaxy M51.
The smartphone runs on the Android 10-based One UI Core 2.1 working system. It got here with a number of pre-installed, irrelevant (to me) apps reminiscent of Chingari, Dailyhunt, Moj, MX Taka TK, Sweet Crush and so forth. That’s undoubtedly off-putting. It provides as much as 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage that’s expandable as much as 512 GB by way of micro-SD card.
I didn’t discover any lag or heating whereas enjoying video games or scrolling lengthy paperwork, my Instagram feed or watching YouTube movies for lengthy hours. Furthermore, even with a single speaker, the audio is loud sufficient to take heed to songs with out being very near the handset.
With a display as massive as 6.7-inches (the identical dimension because the iPhone 12 Professional Max), loud audio and a 7,000 mAh battery, Samsung might have included just a few multitasking options on this handset and referred to as it a pill!
Battery life? It doesn’t get higher than this
A 7,000 mAh battery is the most important promoting level for this smartphone. Whereas it does take round two hours to cost totally, I’m positive you’ll go a minimum of 24 hours between prices. In my expertise, after listening to songs on Spotify, steady use of Bluetooth for a health tracker, enjoying Indignant Birds, watching a few episodes of Schitt’s Creek, common texting and attending to telephone calls, the battery reached 60 % by bedtime.
Since we dont have to exit so much lately, it provides way more than my 2020 battery-life expectation. Even as soon as all of it goes again to regular (the brand new regular), you may really feel fairly good about this telephone.
The Galaxy M51 holds its personal amongst rivals
In case you are somebody whose endurance wears skinny with regards to charging a telephone, this can be a good possibility. You’ll need to stay with staid seems to be and bulk. This smartphone might be an absolute deal with for individuals who love spending lengthy hours on Netflix binge-watching exhibits and flicks.
The Vivo V20 is an efficient choice to those that desire a glossy and classy digital camera telephone beneath Rs 25,000, and for whom a 4,500 mAh battery just isn’t an issue.
In case you are able to splurge a bit and are on the lookout for an all-rounder smartphone, the OnePlus Nord remains to be a tasty choose.
