2-minute Review [Positives]
  • The front has a notch-less display, that spans almost edge to edge, with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism (which is a rare sight in this price bracket)
  • There's a handy button dedicated to the Google Assistant
  • The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is easy to reach and quick to unlock the smartphone
  • Crisp, large 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel - it is HDR10 certified, and there are three colour modes to choose from - the display is set to the Saturated colour mode by default, but you can switch to the Natural or Boosted options if you prefer
  • The lack of a notch helps make the screen appear immersive, and consuming content on the screen is a pleasure
  • True to Motorola style, you get clean and simple stock Android - mind you, it's not an Android One series phone though despite the 'One' moniker
  • The minor Motorola additions to stock Android are those that make the user experience even better - there are the Moto navigation gestures as well as the Moto Display, both of which make it easier to live with when compared to any other stock Android phone
  • Excellent performance powered by one of the best chipsets at this price, the Snapdragon 730G - there's enough grunt to handle day-to-day duties as well as heavy gaming with ease, PUBG Mobile defaults to the High preset
  • Very good quad-camera setup - there's the 64MP primary, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle, a 5MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, it manages good shots with ample detail, objects at a distance have decent detail - the phone also enables HDR automatically in bright scenes
  • The ultra-wide-angle camera offers a wider field-of-view at the cost of slightly lower details than the primary camera - it has a slightly different colour tone compared to the primary camera
  • Close-ups turns out quite well - the macro camera lets you get a lot closer to an object
  • Portrait mode lets you set the level of blur before you take a shot - edge detection is good, and the background is blurred properly
  • Night mode works surprisingly well, you've to hold the phone steady for slightly longer - but the output with Night mode is a lot brighter and have improved details in the shadows as well
  • Selfies taken with 16MP selfie shooter has good details - you can also enable portrait mode for selfies, and edge detection is decent - the selfie camera also supports Night mode
  • This single speaker is loud enough to fill a small room and adds to the video watching experience
  • Very good battery life with the 5000mAh battery - it will easily last you for 2 days on moderate use
  • The One Fusion Plus comes with an 18W TurboCharger in the box to help with fast charging
  • Motorola has got the specifications and the pricing right for the One Fusion Plus, making it very easy to recommend - the highlight is its clean, bloatware-free near-stock Android software which provides excellent user experience and the notch-less display is a cherry on top
  • Sleek, classy design - the Galaxy M51 seems identical to the Galaxy A51, with a glossy polycarbonate back design - giving it a premium look
  • The front gets a new trendy look with a hole-punch display, similar to the Galaxy M31s
  • The phone feels solid in the hand - the 'glasstic back' offers better grip, and it is not as slippery as other phones with a glass back
  • The side-mounted fingerprint scanner is quick to unlock the device
  • Punchy, vivid and massive 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display - the display is one of the best in class panels with great colour reproduction and viewing angles
  • It also comes with "Widevine L1" certification, which helps stream content in crisp HD resolution
  • Blacks are deep on the AMOLED display, which looks good with Dark mode enabled
  • Samsung's OneUI is today one of the more clean, refined Android UIs that's especially well optimized for large displays like this one
  • One UI also brings in other useful stuff, like a System-wide Dark mode (which turns the background completely black and looks great on the M51's AMOLED display), and Always On Display option
  • Very good performance from the Snapdragon 730G - the chipset and Samsung’s OneUI optimization could take anything that you throw at it, switching across apps, moving across the UI, multitasking, and opening multiple Chrome tabs, social media is a breeze - heavy games like Call of Duty run smoothly without any lag
  • Samsung has fixed the only major drawback it had in other M-series phones with average performance, and this time the Galaxy M51 has no issue taking on the competition in performance
  • Good quad rear camera setup - 64MP main sensor + 12MP wide-angle lens + 5MP depth sensor + a 5MP macro camera - the Galaxy M51 carries the same camera setup as seen on the Galaxy M31s
  • Shots taken with the primary camera during daylight are quite satisfactory, images are detailed, especially the 64MP shots, and they showcase the good dynamic range
  • The ultra-wide sensor, like on any mid-range phone, is a good addition - it takes social media-worthy images in great lighting conditions (in low-light, the quality dips and pictures look grainy and noisy, wide-angle shots also have barrel distortion at the edges)
  • Photos taken in low-light looks good - switching to Night mode helps reduce grain in the output and further improves image quality
  • Live Focus shots are quite impeccable and the camera app does give you the option to set the level of blur before taking a shot - edge detection is very good and the Galaxy M31 does a good job of separating the subject from the background
  • The macro camera takes decent shots outdoors (though, the quality dips when indoors and the output is restricted to 5MP in resolution)
  • The single take is a nice addition from the more expensive S20 series, it lets you capture multiple formats at once
  • The 32MP selfie camera is quite good and takes detailed selfies (though in low light, the quality goes down a notch and results are grainy)
  • Overall, the cameras on the M51s are good for the price bracket, even though they are not the best
  • Mammoth, out of this world 7000mAh battery delivers an incredible 2-3 days of heavy usage easily, making the Galaxy M51 the largest battery life smartphones currently available
  • Supports 25W fast charging - the phone takes around 2 hours to charge the battery completely, which is decent
  • The Galaxy M51 brings very good value as its big battery, powerful cameras, and expansive display all help make a solid argument in the device's favour - the phone's Snapdragon 730G SoC also ensures that M51 offers enough in terms of raw power to help it tackle most things you throw at it
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Reaching the top while using the phone single-handed is somewhat difficult
  • Motorola One Fusion Plus feels chunky and heavy, as it is 9.6mm thick and weighs 210g
  • Motorola has positioned all the buttons on the right, which looks cluttered while the left side is bare
  • The Galaxy M51 feels hefty at 9.5mm thickness and 213g weight - it is difficult to use for a longer duration for calls, streaming, or even gaming
  • The back of the Galaxy M51 is a fingerprint magnet - it can also get scratched easily since it is plastic
  • The display lags with a 60 Hz display, where competing phones like OnePlus Nord offer higher 90 Hz refresh rate
  • There's still great competition at this price and the OnePlus Nord has a lot up its sleeve with a newer processor, higher refresh rate display, and a best in class software
