What is the difference between the Samsung a51 and a71?
The Redmi Note 9S is the one that delivers the best value for money from Xiaomi’s new intermediaries. Is it a better bet that the Galaxy A51 or Samsung’s mid-ranger is more worth your money? That is what we will discover in this comparison by TudoCelular.com. In previous generations, we have seen Xiaomi take the lead in design with glass-finished devices, while Samsung saves money and still adopts plastic. And that hasn’t changed with the Note 9S, which gives a more premium feel to the device. Looking from the front the two look the same, each with its notch in the shape of a hole at the top of the screen. The difference is in size and weight – if you are looking for the lightest and most compact one then you will prefer the A51. The Galaxy has biometrics on the screen and the Redmi has a fingerprint reader integrated into the power button on the right side. Xiaomi’s solution is more accurate and more agile, however, it will be a nuisance for lefties who will prefer the biometrics on the A51. Both are quite complete in connectivity and technologies, but Xiaomi made a bad move by removing the NFC on the Note 9S, this feature may be missed by some. In exchange, you will have an infrared emitter to use the cell phone as a universal remote control.
What’s more important to you? We then started with a draw, since each one has its advantages. The Note 9S has a good IPS LCD screen with an acceptable level of brightness and contrast at this point, it is difficult to beat Samsung that invests in better panels for the Galaxy A series. and we have a Super AMOLED display with stronger brightness, infinite contrast, and better viewing angle on the A51. Even color calibration is better on the Galaxy when using the Natural profile. And in the sound part, do any of them stand out? There is only one sound output with mono audio on both. The maximum volume is a little more powerful on the Redmi, however, the Galaxy has a more balanced0:01:58.040,0:02:03.380sound, in spite of distorting a little more if the volume is exaggerated. The A51 comes with a headset, however, it is a very simple accessory. It’s worth investing in a better quality headset to listen to music with the Galaxy, which in general, delivers better quality than Redmi. And we double-point the A51 for delivering a better multimedia set. The A51 was the first Samsung to be launched in Brazil with Android 10 straight from the factory this should ensure that he receives an update to Android 11 in the future. The Note 9S also comes with the same version of the little robot, but Xiaomi has been disappointing Whet it comes to support and many of its intermediaries from last year are still stuck with Android Pie. Each software has its differentials and features that may be useful for you or not. Anyone who is a gamer will enjoy the Game Turbo 2.0, which improves gaming and even measures the FPS rate on Redmi. In the Galaxy, we have Digital TV in high resolution as an extra, in addition, the Samsung software it is more polished and we noticed that it flows better than MIUI 11.
We then give it a tie the software part. The Note 9S is one of the first to debut the Snapdragon 720G, an intermediate platform from Qualcomm focused on games. Is it better than the Exynos 9611? At least in our standardized speed test, we had an advantage for the Korean model in multitasking. Is it the fault of MIUI’s lack of optimization? Possibly, since in benchmarks we had higher scores on Redmi, reaching over 60% difference in AnTuTu. This can be explained by the GPU Adreno 618 with overclocking and graphics optimization, which not only helps to achieve greater numbers in synthetic tests as it performs better in games. While Asphalt 9 and PUBG run at 30 fps on the A51, on Note 9S we had twice the fluidity and this in the high setting. The A51 may be faster at opening applications, but the Note 9S is better at gaming. We then give each one point in the performance. The Redmi has 1,020 mAh more of battery and, as expected, is the one that delivers greater autonomy for both. With the A51 you will have juice for the whole day with a little something left for the next morning with the 9S it is even possible to recharge your cell phone every other day if you do not demand much from the device. Xiaomi provides a more powerful charger, but it ends up taking virtually the same time to recharge as the rival due to the much larger battery. Redmi Note 9S takes point for greater autonomy. We have a 48 MP camera on both with the same sensor. Both are able to capture enough details of the scenarios, do not suffer much from noise the contrast is right and the colors are close to reality when shooting during the day. At night or in very dark places, we have a small advantage for the A51. Both also have a good camera with a wide-angle lens. With the macro, we have an advantage for the Chinese model because it has automatic which allows you to get closer to objects than the A51. The fourth camera with depth sensor does its job well on both. We then se it a tie for the rear set of cameras on both devices. Although the A51 has a front camera with twice the resolution, it does not deliver selfies with much more Details. Like Redmi, Samsung’s also uses the pixel compression process to shoot clearer images What we notice is that the two deliver similar quality in selfies be it day or night. none really stand out, but the A51 suffers a little less with a bursting background when using Portrait Mode. And we give each one a point in selfies. The two shoot 4K video, with the A51 capturing more detail and more accurate colors.
If you’re looking for good stabilization, you’ll have to settle for filming in Full HD on both. The wide-angle camera also has stabilization and has an even smoother effect than the main one. You can use the Note 9S macro to shoot, but the focus is not very good and the image quality drops a lot. As for audio capture, Samsung wins. We closed the camera part with a point for the A51’s camcorder. The Galaxy A51 was launched in Brazil at the beginning of the year for R$ 2,200, if you thought it was expensive, imagine the Note 9S that came for almost R$ 3,000. You can choose the imported version found in national retail, but you will still pay more expensive than Samsung’s rival. There is yet another detail to take into account – the A51 delivers twice as much storage for less. There’s no arguing, the Galaxy offers better value for money. The last point of the comparison goes to the A51. The Redmi Note 9S is a nice phone with an exaggerated price. Even imported products have a complicated cost-benefit ratio and look that it is the most worthwhile of the new Xiaomi line. The A51 is more worth your money as it is a phone with a better multimedia experience, more fluid performance, complete cameras with good quality for photos and videos and still costs less offering twice as much of storage. If the Redmi gets to be about R$ 300 cheaper than the A51 it could be an interesting option for its more premium finish, superior gaming performance, and longer battery life.
