    Samsung Galaxy A51 is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Julie M from Camera ok To be honest I got this phone from Vodafone at the beginning of lockdown It was bought on the 4th April 2020 for me this phone is very, very unreliable up-to 5/6 times per day it restarts, have spoke to Vodafone during lockdown about this issue without any success. They told me to either take it into a Vodafone shop for them to look at, or send it back for repair, I decided to take it into a shop, the guy in the shop messed about with the phone but really didn’t have a clue or improve the phone it actually was much worse afterwards. I was told to send it for repair, but I won’t have a phone then so I decided to put up with it, my main gripe is it’s so unreliable that in a true emergency i can’t use it until it reboots up. I am locked in a contract for another 18 months, I think before then I will have stamped on it. Having read reviews and forums I’m disappointed this phones issues haven’t been put right plus don’t feel I can go with Vodafone again. DO NOT BUY ITS THE WORST MOBILE IVE EVER HAD.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Pippin1191 from Good Camera, good battery that is all This is my first Samsung, I have used iPhone and android phones in the past. I brought this in April, it has don't nothing but gliche, it cannot multitask, it crashes or freezes all the time, and then out the blue the screen went black and would not display but the phone still works as I got the messages to my watch! I am waiting on the second repair now in 6 months! Complete waste of money and would never buy Samsung again after this experience.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by NickSam from Terrible phone that breaks after 2 months I bought this phone in May and at the end of July the screen suddenly went black. On taking it to Samsung Repair, they said it was water damage. I can categorically say the phone has not been near water. It has been in a case, in my home, and it has not left. This phone is terrible and Samsung is an awful brand. Avoid at all costs.
