Samsung Galaxy M51 Camera: Great for Photography

Samsung has adopted the Galaxy M51 quad camera setup and the configuration is Galaxy M31s (Review). It has a 64-megapixel primary camera with an f / 1.8 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a field of view of 123 degrees, a 5-megapixel macro camera, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor.

The Galaxy M51 quickly locked the focus, and the scene optimizer was able to quickly recognize what the camera was pointing at. The photos taken in the sunlight proved to have the right details and the right dynamic range. Objects in the distance were recognizable and some text was readable. The Galaxy M51 also automatically enables HDR in bright scenes for great shots. I thought a wide-angle camera would be useful for wide-angle shooting, but there was noticeable distortion at the edges of the photo. Low-resolution wide-angle cameras also do not capture the same level of detail as the primary sensor.

It takes 16 megapixel shots by default from the Galaxy M51, but you have the option to take pictures at full 64 megapixel resolution. Photos taken at full resolution have better details, but lack sharpness and dynamic range.

The selfies I took with the Galaxy M51 are very good and the phone makes them smooth by default. Photos are taken at 8 megapixels by default, but you can switch to a wider 12 megapixel resolution. You also have the option to capture a full resolution selfie of 32 megapixels. In low light, the selfie camera worked well and was able to capture every detail.

This is something Samsung can fix with a small update.

Video recording is recording 4K with a primary camera and a selfie camera. There is a slight sparkle effect at 1080p and 4K when the smartphone tries to stabilize the footage. It can be shot in sunlight or in dark places. Samsung uses a super wide-angle camera and offers a super stable mode that does a much better job. However, it will only be shot at 1080p and the output will be dimmed.

verdict

With the Samsung Galaxy M51, the Galaxy M series is now available in a wider price range. The Galaxy M51 has a large battery of 7,000 mAh, so I think it’s getting a lot of attention, but the battery life is very good. The Snapdragon 730G SoC also offers excellent performance and will satisfy people at this price.

The camera is good, but video stabilization can be done with a few tweaks to improve performance. of Galaxy M51 The Galaxy M51 should be a strong candidate if it easily lasts most of the competition on every charge and has a high battery life on the priority list. of OnePlus North (Review) Is suitable when general performance is important.
