This phone is a huge disappointment, I bought the phone and only 1 week it started hanging and lot of apps appearing at the same time, a new one one was give in exchange, this new one is even the worst, barely 5month I have had 2 A51 and the last just parked up only yesterday. I was asked to take to samsung care office. Pls, something has to be done about it.
A bit disappointed after the last updates. The phone started to behave unstable with lot of automatic restarts. This last update (February 2021) just killed it, I had to restore the factory default and lost some of my data and a full day of work.
i always liked Samsung mobile but when i purchased A51 after that my opinion full changed. i face frequently hanging problem.i already visited to care centre they one time reset my phone but problem still exists.now i think Samsung india not maintained quality.i never suggest any one to buy Samsung product.
I bought this phone about 5 months ago and I really love it. Not much of a camera person, so for me, the negative comments about this phone's camera is out of the window. I do play moba games and the thing is, this phone's wifi connectivity is somewhat weaker than my previous phones. When playing like Mobile Legends, my wifi connection gets a bright red and my gameplay suffers. I tested this against my previous phones like a30 and a20s, this phone's wifi is definitely weaker than those two I mentioned. I already set it to factory settings and it's wifi is still weak. I also updated this phone to the newest OS update but still, the problem persists. I do not know if it's just me since I haven't read anything yet from other people who uses this phone in the comment section.

You would be spending at least a grand or more for a top notch mobile device for gaming. You would be better spending a little more on a well built gaming laptop if it's the mobility that you prefer, or just build a decent rig.
Just upgraded from my old S6, which finally kicked the bucket, (was actually surprised it lasted as long as it did). to the A51 64gb. Not really big on new tech when it comes to phones but the overall spec comparison between the two is a no brainer there when comparing which one is better. Was a huge difference for me and was only $349 on sale right now at Best buy, Canada. Local telus provider/store is selling them for $500+ lol. Great phone. Highly recommend it.
It is a good phone I'm using since 2 months but a few thing are not to my liking. Whenever playing music in the car with bluetooth I have to remove the back cover otherwise the music quality suffers. Editing photos in this phone is a pain because the display (even in natural mode) shows inaccurate colours and I've to transfer the photos in another phone to check if the colours look good or not. Battery backup is disappointing especially if you play games on this phone. Camera although good but not sharp.
Is there any support for carrier aggregation [4g+] ......?

The only issue I see now is that there is a A31 model, with better processor (P65 is using modern processing cores) and more affordable price tag. Battery life on A31 is at least 20% better.

I am an elder who purchased a Samsung A51 to-day Now it is easy for the sales person to rattle through the details of the phone because they know all about it, the same as this video it is all very well showing what it can do BUT what about showing how it works and what to do to make it work, now I fine I have to go back to the store which is a 54 klm round trip just to find out how to turn the phone on so I can make a call ! I have tried and tried SO how do Iturn on my phone, there are no leaflets with diagrams that would helf for a start
I am using A51 since July 2020.
At the beginning there were small small issues. But after some updates the phone is working very well.
Battery is ok. I use emails, WhatsApp and many calls during the day. Evening minimum 25% i can see.
Few times phone was fallen. But nothing happened it was with case provided by Samsung.
Heating i didn't experienced except three times for last 7 months time.
My previous phone was Galaxy A7. Compared to that, A51 is easy to use as it is light weight.
All the functions are working very well so far. I don't have any complaints against this phone.
My advice is, dont look at the features first. Select the brand first.
I do not recommend buying this phone to play games, although it has a good CPU, the GPU is terrible and performs terribly in popular games like Genshin Impact.
i don't like this phone because
It heats up very quickly
In working with the camera
I regret buying this phone
Pete, 21 Jan 2021Still no security update since 1st Oct 2020. Samsung stick with the tried and tested no update... moreThe next update is the January patch. It's definitely coming, but the they don't release all regions at once. The A51 gets three years of security patches. I expect the next one after January will be Android 11.
