Is the Samsung galaxy a51 or Moto G 1 Hyper better? or a different phone?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im looking at phone in the $350 and under price range and the two i have found that that i think might be the best are the Samsung galaxy a51 or the moto g1 hyper. All i do with my phone is watch movies, youtube, use things like twitter and discord and take photos sometimes. I don't game literally ever on my phone so i dont really care about cpu power. So what phone should i get?

Screw them both. If you are buying new the A51 is a good phone but if you have the capability of buying used you can do FAR better. You can get a near mint condition LG V40 Thinq for around $200 or so off of eBay. Or if you want to go the iPhone route you can go up to about an iPhone 7 plus for $300-$350 in good condition.

Depends what you want in a phone...

 

A51 has the better screen with under-screen fingerprint reader, but the One Hyper has a mechanical pop up front cam

 

The One Hyper only comes in 128GB storage and 4GB RAM configuration. The A51 has 64 or 128GB of storage, and anywhere between 4GB and 8GB of RAM. Be sure to know what you are getting.

 

The One Hyper's SD675 is more capable than the Exynos chipset in the A51, although any efficiency lead it has will probably be lost through its non OLED screen. Gsmarena has yet to come out with standard battery tests for the One Hyper.

 

Motorola's software is closer to stock than Samsung's One UI 2, if you somehow care about that.

 

Think about what you are replacing and why. Think about what improvements you are looking to get.

 

Perhaps someone might suggest something they say is 'better' but can they explain why? Do the supposed advantages even matter to you? And dont forget the disadvantages which product pushers never mention.

 

You decide


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

TBH any phone will do! 

 

I have the Moto G8 Power. I do all of those things with ease and the 5000 mAh battery is nice to have. The modest specs of the G8 Power don't bother me yet. 

 

HOWEVER, the G8 Power is chunky and heavy. 

 

The Samsung A51 is a better bet! It fits in the hand better. That's something nobody cares to talk about. And the screen is awesome too. Not a bad phone TBH.
