Galaxy M51 x M62: Which mobile phone with a giant battery is worth more? – 08/10/2021

NS Galaxy M51 It arrived in Brazil at the end of 2020 with the largest battery on the market by numbers: 7000 mAh. Now in early August, Samsung Release Galaxy M62, a newer version of the line which also contains the same giant battery.

According to the manufacturer, both can be used in moderation for two days without recharging. Their similarities extend to the quality of the cameras, screen, and additional features. But which one is more cost-effective?

tilt Compare the technical specifications of the two models to help you know which one is worth.

  • Galaxy M51: 163.9 mm x 76.3 mm x 9.5 mm; 213 grams
  • Galaxy M62: 163.9 mm x 76.3 mm x 9.5 mm; 218 grams

The dimensions of the two products are the same. The only exception is the weight, which has a slightly different value. Looking at the appearance of the devices, you can clearly see that the interface is very similar. A small hole in the middle of the top of the screen was used to house the selfie camera.

Both are made of plastic. The most obvious change is in the back. While the M51 is plain and plain looking (sold in black or white), the M62 comes in a metallic look and vertical stripe design, available in black or blue.

The arrangement of the cameras also allows them to be distinguished, although both have four rear cameras: on the M51, three are stacked and one alone in the column on the side (more rectangular); On the M62, they are located in two parallel rows (plus square). There are buttons and fingerprint sensors on the side on both models.

Verdict: dead heat. The standard appearance of the Galaxy M51 may please some people. However, the M62’s more innovative rear grip coupled with a more discreet camera array may convince others as well.

  • Galaxy M51: 6.7″ (17cm) Super Amoled Plus, Full HD+; 60 Hz
  • Galaxy M62: 6,7 polegadas (17 cm) Super Amoled Plus, Full HD+; 60 Hz

Another very similar item. The screen size is the same. The same is true for the 1080 x 2400 FHD+ display resolution, and the 60Hz refresh rate (makes the scenes more fluid. The higher the number, the better).

Verdict: Another artistic draw.

  • Galaxy M51: 7000 mAh
  • Galaxy M62: 7000 mAh

We got to the main attraction of the two smartphones: the 7000mAh battery, which outperforms its competitors in the Brazilian market (which operate on average at values ​​between 4000mAh and 5000mAh). Charging is 25W on both, which quickly restores battery life.

According to Samsung, the M62 is able to make the battery last up to 24 hours using direct 4G internet. For video playback, the estimate is up to 33 hours. The M51 runs, respectively, up to 23 hours and 34 hours, respectively. Very similar values.

Tests conducted by the “GSM Arena” website showed that the M51 worked for 53 hours on a single charge. Charging from 0% to 100% takes 1 hour 47 minutes. If we consider that the battery is identical to the M62, then we can assume that the performance will also be consistent with the newer model. However, only practical tests will tell.

This kind of result also depends on the optimization of the processor and the operating system. This combination can make a huge difference even if the amount of mAh in the battery is the same.

Verdict: Another technical draw, but obviously the outcome could change depending on what Samsung has prepared for the newly launched Galaxy M62.


  • Galaxy M51: 64MP + 12MP + 5MP + 5MP
  • Galaxy M62: 64MP + 12MP + 5MP + 5MP

The quad rear cameras on the two phones have a 64MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera (123° angle), two 5MP cameras, one camera (for taking pictures of nearby objects) and one with a depth sensor (to help with background blur).

In fact, the 5-megapixel macro is a plus for both. The common market for a camera of this type was 2 megapixels. Video is recorded in UHD 4K, at a resolution of 3840 x 2160, at 30 frames per second. Only the back has a flash light.

A slight difference between the two is the digital zoom range: up to 10x on the M62 and up to 8x on the M51. The ability to capture slow-motion videos on this year’s model is better (480fps – fps) than last year’s (240fps).

In front of me

  • Galaxy M51: 32 mega pixels
  • Galaxy M62: 32 MP

The front cameras of the two models are similar. With 32 megapixels, they have the effect of blurring the background with the help of the operating system installed in the mobile phones.

Verdict: With a slight advantage, the Galaxy M62 wins the dispute here.

  • Galaxy M51: Snapdragon 730, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage
  • Galaxy M62: Exynos 9825, 8GB RAM, 128GB Storage

This is where the difference between the two devices comes into play the most. Both have octa-core processors, that is, with eight cores, which helps in performance, making cell phone Faster. However, the M62 does come with an Exynos 9825, beating out the M51’s Snapdragon 730. This year’s phone uses the same processor as Samsung’s advanced 2019 lineup, and Galaxy Note 10.

The latest Galaxy processor cores operate at frequencies of 2.73 GHz, 2.4 GHz, and 1.95 GHz, which are faster than the older model, which operates at 2.2 GHz and 1.8 GHz.

The M62 is also ahead in terms of RAM: 8 GB against the 6 GB of the M51.

When it comes to storage space, cell phones have the same configuration. However, the 2021 Galaxy allows the use of a memory stick of up to 1 TB. Issuance smart phone From 2020, this is possible up to 512 GB.

Verdict: Galaxy M62 wins, outperforming settings that affect performance.

The Galaxy M62 and Galaxy M51 are available for two SIMs and neither comes with stereo sound. They are identical in sensor types: accelerometer, fingerprint, gyroscope, proximity, among others.

Verdict: swipe again.

  • Galaxy M62: R$2499 on the official website. In retail, from R$ 2,249.10 *.

The Galaxy M62 was released at the official price of 3,499 USD (and a promotion until August of 2,499 USD). It is definitely a higher value than the value charged on the Galaxy M51. Therefore, your choice should have some points of interest.

  • I need a mobile phone with a good battery: Galaxy M51 would be a good device. It is cheaper and has a large battery.
  • I need a mobile with a good battery and a faster processor: If you can, it is worth investing in the Galaxy M62 for the reasons mentioned in the performance thread.
