Screen and Design
The Galaxy A51 has a Super AMOLED 6.5″ screen with Full HD+ resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) that tends to be pleasant due to the level of brightness and contrast quality. It is a similar panel used by Samsung in the Galaxy S20 FE.
The images displayed by the device, therefore, tend to be better than that of the 6.6 inches HD+ LCD on K62 Plus. In addition to having a panel without the renowned OLED quality, the LG model offers much lower pixel density and can mainly affect the use for text reading when browsing the web.
The phones feature a camera-marked design on the screen and a modest finish. Both feature plastic construction and no resistance to water or dust. The K62 Plus, however, has a military certification in the MIL-STD 810G standard, approved by the United States Army. It promises to provide greater protection against crashes and extreme temperature variations. The Galaxy A51 has more subtle edges around the screen, making the body lighter and more compact.
Samsung offers the A51 in blue, black, and white. LG sells the K62 Plus in blue and red. The two also have the traditional P2 input for headphones.
The mobile phones feature a quad-camera with the same arrangement: main, ultra-wide, macro, and depth camera for portrait mode. However, there are differences in sensor specifications.
The Galaxy A51 has a 48MP main camera that uses a large number of pixels to offset the f/2.0 aperture, considered small by current standards. The ultra-wide one has 12MP (f/2.2) and both the macro and the depth of field have 5MP. The front camera is 32MP (f/2.2).
The LG K62 Plus also has a 48MP main camera, but the f/1.8 aperture gives better performance at night or in low-light environments. The manufacturer also says it uses artificial intelligence to enhance photos depending on the scene. On the other hand, the other cameras have lower specifications: ultra-wide 5MP (f/2.2) and macro and auxiliary for 2MP background blur. The selfies sensor is 28MP.
Performance and storage
Both smartphones feature octa-core processors up to 2.3GHz. The Exynos 9611 of the Galaxy A51, however, is built in a 10-nanometer process, more advanced than the 12-nanometer lithography of the Mediatek Helio P35 of the LG K62 Plus.
The main advantage of the most modern chip is its power consumption. Moreover, the hardware specifications are the same and indicate similar performance in day-to-day applications and games. Both adopt 4GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage via microSD card.
South Korean smartphones have the same battery capacity: 4,000mAh. Manufacturers say the battery component is sufficient for a full day’s use away from the outlets.
On the one hand, the A51 has a more advanced chip that can consume less power, making the battery charge last longer. On the other hand, the K62 Plus can balance out with the most energy-saving display because of the lower resolution. Only Samsung provides an expectation of duration: up to 16 hours of Wi-Fi navigation or up to 20 hours of video playback.
Both the Galaxy A51 and LG K62 Plus come with factory-installed Android 10 and are eligible to receive an upgrade to Android 11. Both are compatible with functions such as dark mode, intelligent battery control, gesture navigation, advanced notification filtering, among other Google system features. However, each seeks to offer unique software features such as Samsung’s Safe Folder and dynamic background blur control in LG’s camera app.
The Galaxy A51 features Digital TV, which allows you to tune into open HD channels without the need for the internet. Besides, the cell phone brings a digital reader integrated into the display and NFC connectivity for payment by proxy.
The LG K62 Plus has all these functions but has 3D sound to watch videos in a more immersive way, a physical button to activate the Google Assistant, and a digital sensor on the side that can be more reliable than the solution integrated to the screen. Both bring Bluetooth 5.0 and support for two telephony chips.
The Galaxy A51 arrived at the market and can be found currently for $349 on Amazon. LG K62 Plus, launched in November already appears on sale for $350.
