Battery Performance


Introduction


With a price of around 400 EURO, the Samsung Galaxy M51 is a Mid-Tier smartphone in the ViserMark ranking (Smartphones priced between 200-500 EURO). The Qualcomm SMD 730G Snapdragon 730G orchestrate the smartphone.


A 7000mAh battery powers the M51 to assure high autonomy. Compared with other Mid-tier devices, a higher refresh rate is a missing feature in the M51 that allows 60 Hz.
