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.

  1. 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 ??

  2. 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. πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

  3. 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.

  4. 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!!!

  5. Bro you really pulled the guts out of this one. I was almost on the verge of buying it. Thanks for saving my money. πŸ˜€

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. this guy trying too hard to hate on a midrange phone he probably wont complain on an iphone se barely making a day using dataπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. I got the S7 almost 3 years ago for 400 euro and it still works and I'm happy with it, just battery isn't as great as it once was. Would this phone or the a41 be worse in other aspects such as camera or how smooth the os runs? Shutter speed is important as well as poorly lit photos (love to take indoor pics of my cats). Would love to hear what others think, if it's worth replacing my S7 for one of these. Thanks!
