    I own this phone and its not what ANY of these specs say. Its trash. Camera? Sucks. Its grainy, fuzzy, the auto focus sucks and makes even dark objects look to bright.

    Front facing camera? Looks like a 1 mega pixel camera. It sucks.

    Screen quality? Sucks. It has terrible bleed in issues and scratches waaay to easy. The plastic back sucks as well

    Storage? TRASH. 4GB of ram vanishes like money leaving your wallet. It uses ram for apps that are meaningless and using the optimize option does nothing cause it opens all of the apps again after using it and the ram space you freed up gets used right back up again. So it runs very slow and lags a lot.

    Only good thing about this phone is the battery. Thats all that's even good about this phone.

    Conclusion? Don't buy it. Do yourself a favor and spend your money on something that actually is worth it. Get a galaxy note 9. You can get it for the same price as this piece of garbage and you get flagship quality. Period. Your welcome

    I got the 5G version of this a couple of weeks ago. I'm coming from an a50s and got tired of waiting for an "s" version of the a51 and the pixel 4a here in the UK and for what it's worth, I think the 5g version is the "s" version I've been waiting for. The Exynos 980 is a pretty great upgrade from the Exynos 9611.

    I've had this phone for about 4 months now, and I've really liked it. The only problem I've had is its battery. I'm on my phone A LOT but I haven't ever struggled with batter like I have with this one 🙁

    This is a great review! I'm considering this as an upgrade from my Samsung s8 but please could you tell me is it slow to open the camera app and is it slow to focus? I take a lot of pictures of my kids so need something that isn't laggy so I don't miss shots. Also would be great to see a comparison with the a71 as wondering if there is much of a speed difference between them as also considering that phone, thanks.

    Will go to buy it Tomorrow,Hopefully I'll find one. It has been stock out(Both offline and online ) here in Bangladesh for about a month now. It costs around 350$ (6/128) here. Great review,Loved it. You got a new subscriber.

    I'm having OnePlus 6. It's a great phone but with a poor battery and it's gotten worse in last 2 years.
    I don't play games but I take pictures a lot and OP6 works very well with GCam. Is A51 a good replacement ??
    I'm from India and I don't think we'll be getting 5G in next 2 years 😅

    My A70 came with a horrible fingerprint scanner, I even switched it off. After a few updates it started working flawlessly, now it actually has no issues and works perfectly. The position is on the low side though
