Those screen on times (browsing, video) aren't great for having a 7000mAh cell. The talk time is right where it should be! Here's to hoping the A72 will have a 5000mAh cell and at least SD765G.
A pretty good phone but at the pricepoint that it currently targets right now, there are better ones that exists outside Samsung's ecosystem. The more I see it on how Samsung midrangers were being equipped, the more I believe that whatever hardware they chose not to add or even software limitations that they've chosen to do, it's for the protection of their higher-end models and not because of the production costs as this phone was already being sold on a far higher mark-up.
I find it absolutely ridiculous that you test the frequency response and loudness of the poor quality speakers in phones, but you no longer test the loudness and frequency response of the high quality 3.5mm headphone jacks for the phones that have them. You always mention how great it is that they have the 3.5mm plus, only to ignore testing it. What are you guys thinking? At least test the volume level of the 3.5mm plug. Yes, the frequency response is usually close to perfect and probably doesn't need testing, but not testing the volume level is totally illogical. Many are average and below average and without you guys testing it, how are potential buyers supposed to know? Do a poll and you'll see people want that test back.
Imperator Neubaticus, 12 Dec 2020Amazing battery life. And the midrange sd chipset is no slouch either. But a 60hz refresh rate... moreHad a 7pro but didn’t like the curve screen & tried Redmi Note 9pro but LCD was bad & settled for M51, I can forgo 90hz but not AMOLED though....
I actually like the side FPS. I think it's the best location to have one. An in-screen one makes screen replacements more expensive. (yes, I am one of those who likes to keep phones running for as long as possible and consider repairability/replacements, too). Not to mention the fact that you can't have a matte screen protector to eliminate glare or any screen protector.
And it's a great call by Samsung to have the back flush with the camera lens protrusion. If all manufacturers could simply do this one logical thing, there'd be way better battery life on quite a many other devices, too.
The M51 proves that for all the SoC efficiency and software optimisation, there is no replacement for displacement. Might as well cram in the most physically possible. And having protruding camera lenses don't particularly help.
Amazing battery life. And the midrange sd chipset is no slouch either. But a 60hz refresh rate is something people won't want to go back to once they've tasted 120hz or even 90hz.
See... that's a gorgeous battery. If only one of LG's V phones would get a battery like this.
