Samsung Galaxy M51 – Limitations
- First of all, the display does not support the 90Hz feature which is present in One Plus Nord at the same price bracket. Well, it is not much of an issue, because a 60Hz AMOLED display will always be preferred over a 90Hz IPS LCD, but it would be amazing to have a high refresh rate display.
- Second, the phone is a hefty phone, it weighs 213 grams. And the width of the phone is 9.5 millimeters, which is a little outspread making it difficult for a single hand usage. But it is obvious for the phone with the massive battery.
Since there are two not so major problems with the Samsung Galaxy M51 and if you are fine with it, then it’s a good choice. But if these problems sticking in your eyes then, you can also go for OnePlus Nord and Samsung Galaxy A71.
OnePlus Nord offers a higher refresh rate of 90Hz with Fluid AMOLED HDR10+ and also it has a higher processor variant, Snapdragon 765G, a 7nm chipset with Adreno 620. The problem of the inferior quality of the display is not with this particular one as it sports a fascinating display.
On the other hand, Samsung Galaxy A71 comes with a super AMOLED Infinity-O display, and with Snapdragon 730, a 8nm chipset with Adreno 618 chipset. The problem with the Galaxy M51, of being heavy and thick, is not with this particular one as it is 7.7mm thick and weighs only 179 grams.
