Apparently Samsung has made it its mission to close any gaps in the mid-range. While there is already a lot of choice with the Galaxy M21, M31, A41, and A51 models, we now test the newly available Galaxy M51. It particularly draws some attention with its large screen and extremely high-capacity battery.
At 369 Euros (~$434), the M51 costs the same amount from the manufacturer as a Samsung Galaxy A51, even if that is already older and therefore available for cheaper on the Internet. However, the M51 brings a larger display and a significantly higher-capacity battery. This year you also get a flexible camera system in all the Samsung mid-range smartphones, but the interesting thing about the M51 is that it does not use one of Samsung's own Exynos SoCs. Instead the smartphone is run by a Snapdragon 730 from Qualcomm.
So let's take a look at how the Galaxy M51 fares against the in-house competitors and those from other manufacturers.
