Honestly,I had a choice to make between Motorola moto g 5g and this one.
I left Galaxy M51 and opted moto.Why ?
1.Clean UI of moto with zero bloatware.
2.Far better build then Galaxy M51.If you open Galaxy M51 box in reverse and it bang on floor,you can only weep.Moto phones still pass drop tests.
3.No preparations of future in M51.Agreed 5G not coming this year but till when ?.70% buyers pledge to use smartphone for atleast 4 years though end up using 2 years.
4.Samsung has made a 7000mah but SAR head value goes at a toss. Buyer inculcates this fact in mind that children would be using it for whom SAR recommendation < 0.75.How this phone can be left at children disposal being so eye candy ??
5.It has SAMOLED display.A prick/fall of mobile affecting even one pixel in AMOLED means full display failure.Moto being at IPS LCD not only maintains similar vision quality but at the same time if your single pixel has issue or a fall on screen side happen,damaged part will not work but alteast rest display will work.
6.This point at a personal level.I tremendously dislike samsung for its OneUI and icon design.With Exynos processors in budget segment,they have written a charcoal story about themselves.Now mind doesnot set to rely them.An inner feeling,smartphone is very brittle,light and non-durable.
Previously used Moto Z Play for 4 years, which was a very good buy. Decided not to go for Chinese brand again purchased M51 & using it 4 months. It competes with high end phones double its price. Excellent battery, camera, gaming, Super Amold display & day to day usage.
Imperator Neubaticus, 12 Dec 2020Amazing battery life. And the midrange sd chipset is no slouch either. But a 60hz refresh rate... moreI would extra hz makes a phone feel more impressive, but does not actually make it. Worst gimmick ever
Fredwinia, 21 Dec 2020I am a man. Dont care. Scratsches will give the phone a nice patina.Well, resale value will drop a lot if you want to sell a scratched phone. Found that out myself when I want to trade in the A50 for another phone. Pretty sure monetary load still affect either man or woman.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2020New Owner here! Man, this phone felt heavy on the first few days of usage. Battery is amazing!... moreIf Samsung M51 is using same plastic as the A50, which I suspect it is, then the M51's back will get scratches easily even with case on. My A50 was full of micro scratches even when I always keep the case on. It seemed even dust can scratch the plastic.
New Owner here! Man, this phone felt heavy on the first few days of usage. Battery is amazing! But that "Glastic" backplate doesnt look like it will hold up any scratch even on daily use. I know many will not share this opinion, but I'd rather they cheapen it out with some hard Nokia era plastic, like what Poco M3 is doing. Everything else is just perfect.

proUser, 17 Dec 2020already did that, still push ads are coming in notification but not daily. random days. It... moreEven S20 users reported seeing ads in Galaxy apps. Looks like Samsung is selling phones at high price and still want to earn extra profits from advertising.
Fredwinia, 17 Dec 2020 i think my m51 is even better then my old asus max pro m1.. and that was a very good phone.. ... moreAsus Max Pro M1 has a more durable metal back. Speaking from my experience with A50, the plastic back on Samsung midrange phones is super easy to get tiny scratches even with case on. Without case, be prepared to see deep scratches after a few months. Only the plastic on the Note20 is more scratch resistant.
