    I had the a50 and destroyed it in bout 6 mos. into the relationship . not the phones fault I chose the a51 seeing that it came out shortly after I had purchased the a50 and figured it was an upgraded version it I s..little things here and there in not sure why they were messed with. regardless, I am happy with the phone as the fingerprint scanner seems to have improved also I utilize many apps and it does a pretty good job managing all of them one piece of advice I would give is to immediately get a case for it it is a beautiful phone however the thinness and smooth finish make it akin to a fish in the hands

    Let me be perfectly honestly: I am an iPhone user... but I have several folks on my cell phone plan who swear by Android devices. Let me say... on the record... this is a very very sleek phone. Out of the box, its quality rivals that of the more expensive Samsungs - it's sleek, thin, and feels good in your hand. It's fast, has a very good battery life, and includes all of today's requirements: wireless charging, USB-C connector, full screen that has amazing colors. I am still an iPhone person... but if you're an Android person, I HIGHLY recommend this phone for you. PS - Best Buy often runs $100 off sales if you activate the phone through them. Even if you get charged $40 from your carrier to activate, you still save $60 ($100 credit - $40 activation = $60 credit). We did that with three of these phones on our plan!

    I broke my edge right when I paid the last payment over a year ago. I was so mad at purchasing an expensive phone and didn't make it to the end I went and bought a 200 dollar phone. Needless to say you get what you pay for in most cases. After so many frustrating issues, I gave in and thought I was going to have to spend over $1,000 on a decent phone. This A51 is a good phone, and not pricey. It is fast and has a lot of storage.

    This phone is a great value for your average user. If you can catch it for around $300, definitely pick it up. You get a decent camera, great battery life, and the latest Galaxy features without the price of an S20 or even S10. This phone is not the fastest or for people who want to keep many apps open, but for the average person, this is just right. The worst part about this particular unit is Verizon slows the update frequency and pre-installs a bunch of junk. Buy unlocked if you can.

    Only had this phone for a couple of days but I'm very happy and impressed with it so far. I "down graded" to this from my galaxy s9 can't tell any difference in function, resolution or power. Im never getting a brand new top of the line phone again it feels incredible having this phone like im a free man not having to worry about breaking a 1k plus phone or dealing with the despair after you do. Best phone decision I've made love the way it looks and feels and runs, buy it and be free and happy...

    I bought this for my 80 year old mother. She doesn't need all the bells and whistles, but likes to take pictures. This has a good camera for the price, so a great choice. The set up of having the volume and power keys all on the same side is a little bothersome. She is often hitting the volume keys when trying to hit the power button.

    Let's face it, some phones today will run a small company all by themselves. When I went shopping for a replacement phone, I was looking for a phone first. Sure, I like to check my email, text my friends, and keep up on the news, but I didn't need a $1000+ phone to do that. This phone works great for all the basic communication needs that I have. I'm quite happy with my purchase.

    I recently bought this phone as my previous phone, galaxy S7 was becoming more and more slow everyday. The A51 is faster then the galaxy S7 however it's not nearly as fast as husband's galaxy 10. You get what you pay for I guess. It's not terrible and there is more space for apps, downloads etc. My only complaint is that it does not run as quickly as I would expect a newer phone to run.

    Our 15 year old worked putting in a sprinkler system and mowed lawns so he could buy his own phone. He really likes this, just wishes it had a better processor. Overall, so much better than his Samsung Stylo 3 he was previously using, he likes the camera, and and ability to do way more with this phone.

    its great that I didn't have to pay an arm or a leg to get a good camera. It does everything I need with a ton of storage. A MUST is the glass protector with the lifetime warranty. I dropped my camera the first day, and it broke the screen not the camera..and Best Buy replaced it the next day.

    The Samsung A51 is so brand new that the BBY sales staff had very little info. Regardless, our good experience with the A50 convinced us that this would be a good choice. We were so fortunate, in these troubled supply times, to have found the only one (truly) available. Thanks, Best Buy.

    It's a good low budget phone. They put all the buttons on one side,, so I have a tendency to hang up on people or hit things by mistake. But Samsung has Easymode that is a really great feature on putting the most called as icons.
