On 10th September 2020, I reviewed the Samsung Galaxy M51 and at that time, the phone was priced at Rs 24,999 but now, it’s available at Rs 22,999. So I think, this is the best time to see, what Samsung improved with OTA update or is it worth buying, let’s find out?

Samsung Galaxy M51 Review
When Galaxy M51 was launched in India, the phone had lots minor issue which I have talked in full review but after almost three months of updates, now I can say, Samsung has solved all the problem which Galaxy M51 had. Let me add one line from the Galaxy M51 review which I posted a while back.
“The only thing I didn’t like is, sometimes images turned out to be overexposed which is most of the time, it’s more vibrant than natural colours. By the way, most of the people do like overexposed images, So this won’t be a huge problem for almost everyone.”
That overexposed problem is now gone that means if you click images with Galaxy M51 then the images won’t be turned out overexposed. 64MP Sony IMX 682 sensor is now optimized for the OneUI and it works the best and now I can say, at 23k, this is the best camera phone you get to buy.
12MP ultra-wide lens has also been improved after some OTA update. All the images shot on the ultra-wide lens, tuned out to be great and now you can see, all the details without sharpening the images.
These days, I feel, all the mobile brands are focusing on quantity rather than quality. What I’m saying is, after some OTA updates, the smartphone can be improved and this the case with Galaxy M51 but still, I feel, brands can do all the work before launch but this is what it is now.
Talking about performance, as I have said, I haven’t had any problem with the performance and still, the phone is doing well. Also, the phone has NFC support that means you can use NFC for payment or to connect with headphone or anything else.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G will handle all the games without any problem, you will able to play games like COD Mobile or asphalt 9 or any others. There won’t any problem while playing games or even while watching movies as the phone as support for Widevine L1 certification.
Here, I don’t have to talk about display quality but if you want to know, the phone doesn’t have 90Hz refresh rate, it has 60Hz but this is Samsung AMOLED screen and this one is the best to screen you can get below 25k in India. So if you want quality display then yes, this the best you have.
The Samsung Galaxy M51 has massive 7,000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support and it also has reverse charging support that means you can charge other smartphones with Galaxy M51. The battery will last for two days but if you’re casual user then it can last for three days too.
