The best Samsung Galaxy A51 deals in September 2021

It's an impressive achievement. Samsung Galaxy A51 deals have managed to take the features that make Samsung's 2020 devices so impressive and then drastically slash the price tag attached.

Samsung has taken a major step up in its A series handsets this year, making it look like less of a budget handset and more something teetering on the higher-end side of things.

Obviously, this won't be able to hold a candle to what will is on offer from Samsung Galaxy S20 deals in a matter of days but the important part here is the price. Samsung Galaxy A51 deals have brought costs firmly into the £20 a month region.

And yet, despite that exceptionally low price, you're getting quite a lot for your money. The 6.5-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display is far better than we would expect with these costs, the 4000mAh battery competes with the best and the wide array of rear cameras is impressive to say the least.

It's not all unexpectedly high specs. It has a weaker processor than most of Samsung's other devices lurking around right now and an upgrade to the Galaxy A71 isn't really much different in cost despite an increase in specs.

The cheapest of Samsung's 2020 releases, we've collected the best Samsung Galaxy A51 deals to pre-order and listed them all below.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 is an interesting device. It aims to fall between both the affordable and higher-end. Where that lands you is with a phone that costs far less than the average mid-range phone but with some pretty healthy specs.

It packs four camera lenses on the back, a 6.5-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display and it even boasts Samsung's smallest pin-hole camera yet. Pair that with the large 4000mAh battery and mass of cameras on the back and the A51 is hitting way above its price.

In fact, the only areas we can really see a major drop is in processing power and internal storage. With 64GB and 128GB editions, this is one of the smallest memory devices from Samsung in 2020 and you'll be stuck with 4GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy A51 deals: FAQ

Is the Samsung Galaxy A51 a good phone for the price?

With an RRP of just £329, the Samsung Galaxy A51 fits well into the world of budget devices. But with some strong competition from the likes of OnePlus and Apple, is the A51 worth its price a nutshell, yes.

The A51 features a bold OLED screen with some clean colours and resolution - perfect for movies and games. On top of that, it fits in a 4000mAh battery which is pretty hefty for this price point.

Two factors do fit in that make the A51 drag behind slightly. Firstly, compared to other phones available, this device doesn't perform as well as it should with fingerprint sensors.

Even worse news is that the A51 doesn't exactly have a huge amount of power behind it and will feel slower than a lot of other devices at this price point.

Samsung Galaxy A51 or A71 - which is the best choice?

The A51 has a very similar brother - the A71. This other handset from Samsung is bigger, more powerful but also more expensive. However, considering it comes in with an RRP of £419, it isn't a massive jump.

For a lot of people, the jump up to the A71 will be a worthwhile one. Samsung Galaxy A71 deals are still cheap in the grand scheme of phones and won't exactly push your bills through the roof.

But despite that, the specs on-board receive a major bump. You get a screen upgrade to a Super AMOLED+ display (compared to the A51's Super AMOLED). 

It follows that up with a battery size increase to 4500mAh and a far more premium camera experience with four lenses and better software. 

Finally, the processing power of this phone is significantly better, meaning you won't have to worry about a slow phone - a problem the A51 has. Of course, the A71 isn't perfect - you will still face a lack of wireless charging or water resistance.
