The mid-range smartphone segment has been booming with great phones under the 40k price range. To clear your confusion, we are comparing two great devices with the same price tag. Samsung and OnePlus have both launched their mid-range beasts into the market. Let us see who wins in the battle of Galaxy M51 vs Nord N10 5G.
Galaxy M51 vs Nord N10 5G- Overview
Design and Display
Talking about the display, both the phones support the same FHD+ resolution, but the Super AMOLED Plus on the Galaxy M51 is better than the IPS LCD on the Nord N10. Whereas Samsung gives you a better viewing pleasure with a better display, Nord N10 offers you a smoothness of 90hz instead of the standard 60hz on the Galaxy M51. Due to the bigger display and higher capacity battery, the Galaxy M51 is slightly bigger than the Nord N10. Galaxy M51 also weighs 23g heavier, which does not seem like a lot but is enough to feel the difference.
Talking about the design, both the phones are built with a plastic frame with plastic back and glass front, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3+ on Galaxy M51 and Gorilla glass 3 on Nord 10. The back of both the phone looks the same with a similar quad-camera setup and similar branding placement, but Nord N10 has a fingerprint sensor on the back, unlike the Galaxy M51 on the side.
Processor and Storage
Both have a similar performing processor on the performance side, but Galaxy M51’s Snapdragon 730G performs slightly better with a higher clock speed than the Snapdragon 690 5G on the Nord N10. Graphics of the Galaxy M51 are handled by Adreno 618, which performs overall 14-20% faster than the Adreno 619L on the Nord N10. But as the name suggests, the Snapdragon 690 supports 5G and has a better download/upload speed than the Snapdragon 730G. Nord N10 Adreno 619L is a recent GPU and has a better architecture of 8nm than the 14nm architecture of the Galaxy M51’s Adreno 618. Although the tight battle of performance, Galaxy M51 would give a better performance, and Nord N10 has a more efficient chipset.
Talking account storage, both the phones have 128GB storage options with expandable storage with a dedicated microSDXC slot.
Camera and Battery
Both the phones have a 64MP sensor as a primary camera, but overall, Samsung has won the battle of cameras with secondary cameras. Both the devices have an ultra-wide lens, but Galaxy M51’s lens is slightly superior with higher FoV and a 12MP ultrawide lens than the 8MP ultra-wide lens on the Nord N10. And Nord N10 has a gimmicky 2MP lens for the depth and macro sensor instead of a proper 5MP lens for both depth and macro sensors on the Galaxy M51.
Samsung also has won the battle of front camera with double the resolution with 32MP lens instead of the 16MP on the Nord 10 5G. On the video side, too, although the rear camera has similar abilities, Samsung Galaxy M51 can shoot up to 4k@30 fps with the front camera, unlike up to 1080p@30 fps on the Nord N10.
On the endurance side, Samsung Galaxy M51 wins with a massive 7000 mAh battery instead of 4300 mAh on the Nord N10. But Nord N10 having a fast charger and a smaller battery, charges much faster than the Galaxy M51. Overall on the battery side, both the phones are win-win, with one having a large battery and the other having a faster-charging speed.
