Samsung devices are generally known to be impressive; in fact, we have many people who consider phones under this brand to be some of the best in the world. And Samsung hasn’t failed to meet up to this expectation with their two A51 devices.

The Galaxy A51 phones have impressive and similar designs. They both come in nice shapes, although they are a bit heavy.

Their displays are protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. But as for their rear side, plastic was used. But never make the mistake of thinking the plastic used is one of those cheap ones many mid-range phones feature.

The plastic of these phones is rather a premium plastic. In fact, the plastic of the phones even makes their colours more impressive.

Talking about the colours of the two products, the 4G A51 is available in prism crush black, prism crush white, prism crush blue, and prism crush pink, while the 5G A51 is available in prism cube black, prism cube white, and prism cube pink.

Computing Hardware

When it comes to computing power, the 4G A51 is not a product that’s as impressive as high-end Samsung devices. But one thing I can promise is that, you’re hardly going to be disappointed with the performance.

Being more elaborate, the 4G A51 is powered by the Samsung Exynos 9611 chipset. This chipset is an item which has been sported in a number of good Samsung products. And during all sorts of tests we subjected it to, it performed quite impressively.

The chipset features an octa-core processor. Four of the processor’s cores are 1.70 GHz Cortex A53 cores, while the other four are 2.30 GHz Cortex A73 cores.

As you would expect, the Cortex A53 cores are what would ordinarily run, but when there are heavy tasks at hand, the Cortex A73 cores get activated.

As for the RAM of the phone, builds of the 4G A51 may come with 4 GB, 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. So it’s up to you to decide how much RAM you want.

But for those who can’t figure how much RAM would be okay, let me state that 6 GB of RAM is what you should ordinarily consider. This amount of RAM is what’s ideal, to get the best out of the phone.

However, if you can’t afford a 6 GB RAM build, you should consider a 4 GB RAM build. But, as for those who don’t mind coughing out some extra cash, nothing stops you from considering an 8 GB RAM build.

When it comes to the graphics processing of the 4G A51, the element responsible for that, is the Mali-G72 MP3 GPU.

This graphics processor is a pretty popular processor. If it ain’t good at what it was designed for, it wouldn’t be as popular as it is.

In short, the performance of the Mali-G72 MP3 is a thing you’re also certainly going to be impressed about.

While the Samsung Exynos 9611 is the chipset powering the 4G A51, a more powerful chipset known as the Exynos 980 is what powers the 5G A51.

The performance difference is quite significant, and you’d notice this difference when using the phones for things like games. In fact, this significant performance difference is one of the reasons why the 5G A51 is more expensive.

Giving details on the Exynos 980, the chipset features an octa-core processor. Six of the processor’s cores are Cortex A55 cores rated at 1.80 GHz.

And these cores in question are further the secondary cores. In other words, they aren’t the ones that run most of the time.

While six of the chipset’s cores are Cortex A55 cores, the other two are Cortex A73 cores. These cores are more powerful and rated at 2.20 GHz. And they’re also the primary cores of the phone.

To get the best performance out of a chipset like the Exynos 980, providing a good amount of RAM is also required.

Good enough, getting a 5G A51 with adequate RAM wouldn’t be a problem, as some builds of the device come with 6 GB of RAM, while some come with 8 GB of RAM.

Just like what I stated above, 6 GB RAM is what you should ordinarily consider, but if you have a lot of money to spare, getting an 8 GB RAM build wouldn’t be a bad idea.

As for the graphics processing of the 5G A51, a graphics processor known as the Mali-G76 MP5 is in charge of that. From the little time I spent with the phone, I could notice how it’s more impressive, compared to that featured in the 4G A51.


Samsung is a prominent leader, when it comes to smartphone displays. So there’s nothing to worry about, in this aspect. The two devices feature the same display which happens to be a super AMOLED display.

But featuring a super AMOLED display isn’t the only reason why you’d find their displays very appealing, the resolutions of their displays is another thing which would impress you.

The resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels leave the two devices with pixel densities of about 405 PPI.

Operating System

Everyone who’d be buying any of the two A51s would expect them to run either the Android 9 or Android 10 OS; these devices do not disappoint in this aspect.

The phones are powered by the Android 10 operating system. So expect to enjoy all the nicest Android 10 features you’ve heard about.

However, even though these two phones are powered by the Android 10 OS, the two devices are not powered by the stock Android 10.

The OS that powers them is rather a custom Android 10 known as the One UI 2.1. I wouldn’t say this OS looks more impressive than the stock Android 10, as this might be too subjective.

While the fact that the 4G A51 and the 5G A51 run the Android 10 OS is among the reasons I find the phones exciting in terms of OS, this isn’t the only reason.

Another reason I’m excited about the phones is that when the stable version of the Android 11 gets released, these two phones are two products that are guaranteed to receive OS upgrades.

In other words, you’d be one of those people who wouldn’t have to buy a new phone, to enjoy what the OS has to offer.


Earlier on, I indirectly stated that: when trying to buy the 4G A51, one of the things you’d have to decide on, is how much RAM you want your device to have.

Well, how much RAM you choose would also affect how much internal storage you can get. If you opt-in for a 4G A51 having 4GB RAM, you‘d have the option of choosing between 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage.

For builds of the phone having 6 GB RAM, your only option is 128 GB of internal storage. For builds having 8 GB of RAM, your only option is 128 GB of internal storage.

And since the storage devices used for the phone are UFS 2.0 devices, all storages of the phone are okay.

While the amount of RAM of the 4G A51 would determine what amount of storage you can possibly get, this isn’t so for the 5G A51. All builds of the 5G A51 come with 128 GB UFS 2.1 storage.


The 4G A51 and the 5G A51 differ in a lot of aspects, but the aspect of camera is not one of them. The two phones feature the same set of rear cameras and the same front camera.

The main rear camera of the phones is the Samsung S5KGM2 lens. This lens is a highly-enhanced ISOCELL lens having a resolution of 48 megapixels.

This lens alone is enough to make the phone very impressive, but it has three other lenses supporting it.

The 12 MP lens assists with the wideness of pictures, the first 5 MP lens assists with the depth of pictures, while the other 5 MP lens is a macro lens.

Together, these lenses can be used to take impressive 4K videos, among many other cool things.

The front camera of the two phones is also a thing you’d be impressed with. The lens acting as their front camera is the Samsung S5KGD1.

This lens is also an ISOCELL lens, but has a resolution of 32 MP. And just like the main rear camera, the Samsung S5KGD1 is highly-enhanced. In short, if you’re the kind who loves selfies, you should find the two A51s to be nice products.

Final Words

My verdict as regards the 4G A51 and the 5G A51 is the same as what I’ve stated above. These products are overpriced.

But if you wouldn’t want to risk spending on a phone you wouldn’t be very pleased with, then considering them is a good idea.

And as for those who wonder which of two models to go for, if you’d be travelling out of Nigeria to more developed countries, the 5G model would make sense.

But if you’d wouldn’t be travelling outside for the next 3 years, the 5G build might be a waste of money.

Personally, i think the smartphones that are currently selling for 90k Naira or below are all you need if you are going to stay in the mid-range segment. But, you are not me.

So guys, what do you think. Samsung galaxy a51 worth the asking price in Nigeria? Drop a comment and back up your answer.
