Overall, if you want power pack smartphone at a budget price then don’t look for anything else, Mi 10i 5G has everything expect AMOLED display. So if you want AMOLED display then look at Galaxy M51 but you will lose out on 120Hz refresh rate, 5G support, 33W fast charging, solid build quality and you have to pay 2k more.

I think you got your answer but still, I would say Galaxy M51 is a better option because I always go with AMOLED panel rather than 90Hz LCD panel. I also don’t play many games on mobile, so I will be happy with Snapdragon 730 but if you want best gaming experience then don’t think about Galaxy M51, just go with RealMe X3 or OnePlus Nord.
