Samsung Galaxy M51 review


7Ah. That is the battery limit of the Samsung Galaxy M51 we have for you today. Certainly, you can call that 7,000mAh (much obliged, SI), yet at such huge and pleasantly round limits, we should go for the fewer images and additional stun esteem.

There's very little else excessively energizing in this current Galaxy's spec sheet, however, there's not a ton missing by the same token. A Snapdragon 730G chipset ought to bring fair execution without putting a lot of strain on the battery, the 6.7-inch SuperAMOLED show is large and inky, and the 64MP camera is a score over the standard 48MP units.

What is missing is a high invigorate rate on that show, and 90Hz boards are presently regular in the M51's value range, with the odd 120Hz board showing up as well. A fax camera would have been pleasant as well, however, teles aren't actually standard in this section. Mysteriously absent on the M51 is 5G help by the same token.

Samsung Galaxy M51 specs at a glance:

Body: 163.9x76.3x9.5mm, 213g; Glass front (Gorilla Glass 3+), plastic back, plastic casing.

Show: 6.70" Super AMOLED Plus, 1080x2400px goal, 20:9 perspective proportion, 393ppi.

Battery: 7000mAh; Fast charging 25W, 100% in 115 min (publicized), Reverse wired charging.

Misc: Fingerprint peruser (side-mounted); NFC; FM radio.

Truth be told, going over the above show, you may see that the Galaxy M51 isn't normal for the A71 to the extent the numbers go - aside from, obviously, the 7Ah number (the A71's battery remains at 4.5Ah). Another change is the migration of the unique mark sensor - the A71 has it underneath the showcase, the M51 gets a side-mounted arrangement.

The specs recount just a large portion of the story, however, and we'll make certain to perceive how they convert into true execution. On the whole, a gander at the retail pack.

Samsung Galaxy M51 unboxing

The Galaxy M51 shows up in a straightforward white cardboard box, yet there is a shiny shading print of the telephone on top for a touch of additional pop.

Inside, Samsung's place in the entirety of the significant stuff - you get a charger, a USB-C link, and a bunch of earbuds. The charger is the best they have at this moment, as well - the 25W one that underpins USB Power Delivery with PPS. What didn't make it in the case is a type of defensive case - we're pretty much used to finding an essential straightforward silicone one with telephones in this fragment.


Indisputably a Samsung, the Galaxy M51 is among the greater ones. It must be - with a 6.7-inch show and a battery limit that makes it sound more like a force bank than a telephone, being little and lightweight plainly wasn't on top of this current Galaxy's needs list.

Having said that, it's generally a sensibly measured handset, as our present insights go. Estimating 163.9x76.3x9.5mm, it fits in a similar impression as that A71 we referenced, and that is not a 'colossal' telephone essentially. In any case, it is that third number that makes the M51 champion - with a profile that is just about a full centimeter thick, this telephone is thicker than most to have turned out in 2020.

The adjusted sides from the back do assist with moderating that somewhat, so the telephone doesn't feel like a block in your grasp, yet and still, at the end of the day, it stays a stout unit.

It's not light either, obviously, however that is presumably less substantial. Try not to accept this as though we're attempting to minimize its 213 grams, however, when an iPhone 12 Pro Max is 228g, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra stands at 222g, the M51 some way or another doesn't strike us as such a guilty party here, in addition to did we say it has a 7Ah battery inside?

It's a well-known fact how Samsung figured out how to fit such a great amount of lithium in the telephone yet its weight isn't skirting on crazy - they utilized plastic where those two premium gadgets above have glass and metal. The Galaxy M51's backboard is plastic as is the midframe holding things together.

Indeed, plastic is no awful thing with regards to toughness on a cell phone and its lone drawback, truly, is that it doesn't feel especially elegant. However, richness was likely right close to minimization when the M51 was in the planning phase, and you take the great with the awful.

This shouldn't imply that the telephone feels modest, no. Regardless, the weight and thickness give it a generous and, by affiliation, an excellent vibe. Furthermore, a positive symptom of the 9.5mm waistline is that the camera bunch would now be able to fit inside the telephone's thickness, rather than standing out two or three millimeters.

Alright, that is just halfway obvious - there's a marginally raised encompass around the camera window, however, it's nothing similar to the distending congregations on those that have small, sub-7Ah batteries inside.

We referenced the edge was plastic, however, we should go over what's the place where on it. Beginning with the main piece, the force button/side key/unique mark peruser is on the right.

A few things should be said here. One, the M51's height evidently doesn't take into account an under-show unique mark sensor, despite the fact that the OLED show does - Ms don't get one, and that's all there is to it. 

Two, the catch/sensor combo is set high, well over the midpoint, and getting at it, especially with a left pointer, requires somewhat of a stretch. Three, likewise with all side-mounted unique mark perusers, this one is inclined to enlisting input when you don't need it to - in transit into a pocket, or when you're simply holding your hand in your pocket with the telephone inside as well.

There's a workaround for that last piece in programming, where you can set the telephone to require a push on the catch, rather than simply a tap. The position is additionally something you become accustomed to extra time. However, why not utilize an under-show sensor in any case?

Anyway, over the unique mark peruser is the volume rocker. That is considerably higher than expected, yet we discovered a little issue with its position. It clicks pleasantly, as well.

On the contrary side, there is a card opening. Triple-card plates have an uncommon spot in our famous hearts. The M51 takes two nano SIMs and a microSD giving you all the flexibility you may require.

There's only an auxiliary mic on the top finish of the casing, leaving a wide range of various significant pieces on the base. There you discover the USB-C port, the 3.5mm earphone jack, the speaker, and the essential mic.

Over on the front, you're getting that decent 6.7-inch Super AMOLED show encompassed by... 'reasonable' bezels. We wouldn't call the dark fringes around the screen negligible, however, they're not large either - suppose they're befitting both the occasions and the telephone's market position.

The board gets the Infinity-O marking, which means there's around a poke a hole for the selfie camera, and this one is in the center. We've seen more modest ones, on the Galaxy A51 5G, for instance, however, an M is an M. A sheet of Gorilla Glass 3+ shields the pixels from scratching.

By and large, the M51's plan is basically similar to any ongoing Samsung, huge or little, reasonable or costly. The material decisions aren't premium, however, the plastics utilized here look and feel better, in addition to the M51 makes no exceptional cases in any case. It's huge and it's hefty, yet not as large or weighty being used as you'd suspect by taking a gander at the numbers in the spec sheet. We positively wouldn't fret the vast majority of the compromises Samsung's serving us on this one.

By and large, the M51's plan is basically similar to any ongoing Samsung, huge or little, moderate or costly. The material decisions aren't premium, yet the plastics utilized here look and feel better, in addition to the M51 makes no exceptional cases at any rate. It's huge and it's hefty, yet not as large or substantial being used as you'd suspect by taking a gander at the numbers in the spec sheet. We absolutely wouldn't fret the greater part of the compromises Samsung's serving us on this one.

It is anything but an awful board, notwithstanding. We estimated a most extreme brilliance of 677nits in Adaptive mode under direct light and 373nits while working the slider physically. The auto lift doesn't accept it as high as leads, however, it's effectively brilliant enough, while the manual greatest splendor is about comparable to ordinary Samsung OLED conduct. 

The OnePlus Nord and the Reno4 Pro can be sure to go more splendid when the encompassing light calls for it, however, the Realme 7 Pro is covered a decent 100nits lower.

The M51 is additionally able to do sensibly devoted shading proliferation. Clear and Natural shading modes are accessible. Common is the one tuned for sRGB content, and in our testing, it conveyed a normal deltaE2000 of 2.5, which qualifies as 'shading exact' fine and dandy. Normally, this sRGB-centered 'Characteristic' mode has an abstractly quieted in general look.

The beneficial thing then that out of the case you're getting the Galaxy M51's presentation set to 'Clear' where the extent is wide, and the tones are punchy. We tried this mode with DCI-P3 shading samples and got a normal deviation of 3.7 units, which is nearly there, as well. 

This deviation isn't terrible in general, however, there was a cool pale blue color to whites (delta of 8). That can be fixed by prodding the five-position cool-to-warm slider a score to one side or right to the hottest setting, each conveying a normal deltaE of around 3 and whites inside 4 units misguided.

No HDR claims are coming from the M51's specs pages, however, the telephone plays back HDR renditions of viable substance on YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. There's no HDR playback accessible on Netflix, in any case, despite the fact that the telephone meets the Widevide Level 1 detail for DRM.

Samsung Galaxy M51 battery life

The Galaxy M51's central specialty is battery life - the 7,000mAh cell inside it is the greatest we've seen on a significant brand telephone. With incredible limits, for sure, comes extraordinary perseverance, as our testing demonstrated.

We timed an astounding 53 hours of voice approaches a solitary charge of the M51, an untouched record the Galaxy holds together with the Moto G9 Plus. The M51 is likewise useful for 25+ long periods of circling recordings disconnected or 17 hours of Wi-Fi web perusing - amazing stuff. Considering in the backup execution, we show up at a general Endurance rating of 156h for the Galaxy M51.
