I own A51 and must say that I am very unsatisfied. First of all, phone is overpriced. Some would say "you pay for quality", but here this is not the case. Toichscreen is unresponsive at times and acts strange ocassionally. Camera, even though the sensors are great and photo quality is more than satisfying the use of the same can give you headaches, since it takes to long to take the shot due to lame Samsung Exynos chipset and it is not rare for Camera app to simole crash after taking oen and usually when it happens it does not save photo. When it comes to performance it is average at best nad compared to other phones made by other manufacturers in mid-range class it does not stand good.
My experience with this phone is very pleasant. I am using this since a week. I did use a couple of phones for short term (Galaxy M21, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9, Poco M2 Pro, K20 Pro) before finally deciding to stick with this phone for 2 years. Bought in December 2020.
Display quality is great, afterall it's an AMOLED Screen. Sound Quality is Loud n Clear, including in call sound. Day To Day Performance Is Great I Have the 8GB 128GB Variant. RAM Management is very good. Not into Gaming. Punch hole camera looks better than waterdrop or u shaped notch and single camera in the front is better than ugly dual camera punchole in front so I liked the punch hole design. It is 6.5 inch screen and the screen to body ratio is impressive, I guess it's 95% since the chin is very minimal. The design is not too tall so the size is not too big like those new 6.67 inches screen size phones. I'm impressed with the rear camera quality in daylight, night mode also takes good pictures but sometimes blurry due to no image stabilization. Camera quality certainly seems better than my previous phone Redmi K20 Pro. The body is plastic which easily scratches and at this price it is not acceptable but what to do, have to compromise somewhere. In display fingerprint Sensor works with 95% accuracy the trick is to register the same finger twice but sadly only upto 3 fingerprints can be added. The software side is good I have used TouchWiz and earlier versions of One UI it's pretty clean and customizable and packed with features. So it is running One UI 2.5 which is not too different from One UI 2.1. No complaints on software side. Battery is 4000 mAh and if you are a heavy user you may need to charge twice, in my experience but it supports fast charging so no problem. My experience with Exynos 9611 on Galaxy M21 suggests that this processor isn't meant for graphics intensive games. AOD is supported and so is double tap to unlock. Generally the phone doesn't heat up on normal usage or even during charging so thumbs up. I'm getting 4G+ symbol so again thumbs up. Thankfully the headphone jack is there, I don't feel the need of Bluetooth earbuds so I'm good with my wired earphones. I think its a good phone for long term usage if Samsung will support on the software side for a few years down the line.

Try another thing before.. Go to settings>device care> click right upper corner on 3 dots>open Advanced> turn both 'auto optimisation 'and 'optimise settings' on
Also open device care>battery>adaptive power savings to on
Else reboot your phone and see

Need Opinion. i am Samsung lover and my budget allows me to buy A31. Should i get that or try to have some extra money for A51 if there is a huge difference between two as i can't see only difference between them is front cam and internal RAM.

My A51 battery is draining out rapidly. I observed continuously for 5 days my battery % comes down every night. Figures are as follows before sleep % and morning %...... 46 - 24 , 32 - 21 , 48 - 03, 56 - 40, 39 - 09. Even I have turned of background apps permanently. This problem comes frequently

Tom2131, 10 Dec 2020Have you notice that the ultrawide camera is better than the main camere in colors,sharps?I swear.. And its so annoying

The 80% - 100% battery capacity is actually stronger than the 0 - 80% in terms of energy, but the battery gets worned out a lot when charged all the way to full cap, so I'd suggest that you only do that when necessary.
Optimize your settings as well (you could actually use Bixby Routines for automated setting changes).
Reboot your phone regularly (at least once in 3 days). I'd recommend doing it before sleeping, because it helps stop the background app activities that occur then... [NOT ADVISABLE WHEN YOU HAVE IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS COMING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT]

I figured out that it's actually the Smart Stay function that keeps on accessing the camera, since a second after the outline pops up, the screen dims. It also happens only if I leave it for a while.

Hi, I have an A51, when I installed CPU-Z app to it, it shows that it has a separate auto brightness adjustment sensor. Even when I hover my hand near the earpiece, light intensity is detected by a separate sensor which is located right to the front camera (In CPU-Z app). But whenever I activate Auto Brightness, Camera light sensor is activated and more battery is drained. Why is that?
