The Samsung Galaxy M51 is the best of the M series so far. Around this time, the device shines in all departments, and currently, almost every single phone on the market performs better with its insane battery life.
The formula for Samsung’s M Series devices have been very straightforward: massive battery and large display. With this formula, Samsung has achieved great success over the years. With the newest and most expensive Galaxy M51, the company hopes to take it further.

The cameras of the Samsung Galaxy M51 are now more reliable with a 64MP primary shooter with a 12MP wide-angle lens and a pair of 5MP macro and depth cameras. The 32MP selfie camera is for all you selfie lovers.
Samsung’s OneUI skin is far more mature and user-friendly, but Samsung has already installed and added some Samsung services that often push notifications.
And, finally, battery life is out of the world here. The Galaxy M51 can run smoothly for up to two days with heavy usage and even for regular users, it can also last longer. Overall, this is a good package from Samsung and may eventually favor OnePlus Nord, Realme X3 Series, and Redmi K20 Pro.

The Samsung Galaxy M51 has a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O panel with a 20-inch: 9 aspect ratio. You get a full HD + resolution. The display is protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 for added security. Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus implementation is always found to be more efficient than others. The fingerprint scanner is mounted inside the power button which is located on the right side of the device.
The display is very spacious and tall on the M51. Viewing content online will be a pleasure on the phone. Samsung has Widevine L1 support for streaming HD content on Amazon Prime and Netflix. The screen also becomes bright enough to read outside. There is support for HDR also.
Since it is an AMOLED panel, you get those dark blacks, high contrast, and vivid colors. The white balance of the screen out of the box was a bit too hot for my liking and I started changing the color tone to a slight setting towards the cooler. You get the option to choose between Vivid and Natural. Natural modes seem to be on the warmer side of the spectrum and I suggest you put it in Vivid mode and move the white balance towards the cooler to get the best experience. There is also a ton themed Always-On Display feature from the Samsung Theme Store.
The viewing angles were really good with this one as well. It becomes bright enough to read even in sunlight. I enjoyed watching shows and videos on the Galaxy M51 thanks to the good panel. With all the cool accessories added to the display, Samsung still continues to offer the 60Hz panel. A 90Hz refresh rate screen would have been very good in this segment as we have started seeing trends even at cheaper prices.
One of the drawbacks of previous Samsung M series devices was the issue with performance. This was mainly due to the underpowered chipset that Samsung had chosen for Qualcomm as well as in-house Exynos SoCs. However, this time, Samsung kicked it out of the park and added a Snapdragon 730G chipset to the heart of the Galaxy M51.
The Snapdragon 730G is an octa-core chipset built on an 8nm fabrication process clocked at 2.2GHz. A similar processor is also available on Samsung Galaxy A80, Realme X2, and Vivo X50. According to the track record, the Snapdragon 730G should not be an issue for moderate to heavy use. To handle the graphics, the chipset is paired with an Adreno 618 GPU, which is at a high level of 575MHz. The chipset is mated to a 128GB standard storage option with 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
Apps like Slack, Gmail, Games, Camera, and Social Media did not face any kind of lag or issues. The chipset and Samsung’s OneUI optimization can take anything I threw at it. Switching the entire app, moving across the UI, multitasking and opening multiple Chrome tabs, social media was a breeze. Although processing images such as Night Mode and Pro Mode take a few seconds to spare, this should not be an issue.
Games in a higher setting like Cod Mobile, Asphalt, and there was no difficulty with the gameplay. The gameplay was responsive and had a heating issue or whatever. The Snapdragon 730G is a very powerful chipset and is also capable of handling heavy tasks like gaming to a great extent.
One thing I would like to do better with the next Samsung phone would definitely be a hasty response. This is very bad on the device and I expect Samsung to be able to address it in next-gen smartphones.
The Samsung Galaxy M51 is the most expensive M51 device yet and brings a lot to the table. With the inclusion of Snapdragon chipsets, which the Indian Samsung Super AMOLED panel was demanding with and a larger battery, Samsung is set to like the OnePlus Nord, Realme X3, and Redmi K20 Pro.
Not to forget Samsung’s brand value and strong customer support across the county, the Samsung Galaxy M51 sure is very solid and gets a thumbs up from outside.
