Samsung galaxy m51 vs OnePlus Nord: which one is best for you

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy M51, the South Korean tech giant has created a rival to the mid-range smartphone OnePlus Nord, released in July earlier this year.  The Samsung M51 is a decent all-rounder in the mid-range segment and could benefit from current circumstances as some consumers are looking for a phone that is not made in China amid rising tensions at the border.  Let’s take a look at the two phones in detail.


  The Samsung M51 comes with a 6.7-inch FHD + Super AMOLED Plus Infinity O Display, which offers a 20: 9 aspect ratio with Gorilla Glass 3 Protection support. 

 The OnePlus Nord has a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel with the same aspect ratio as Samsung.  But OnePlus outperforms Samsung by offering a 90Hz refresh rate.


  The Samsung M51 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, capable of running FPS games smoothly.  

OnePlus Nord has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, which is better than the 730G.


  Both smartphones have a quad-camera setup on the back.  The Samsung M51 has a 64MP primary Sony IMX 682 sensor, 12MP secondary ultra-wide lens with 123 degrees field view, 5MP portrait lens, and 5MP macro sensor. 

The OnePlus Nord has a 48 MP Sony IMX 586 primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens with a 119 field-of-view, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.

On the front, the Samsung M51 has a 32 MP Sony IMX 616 sensor with features like the single take and multiple p output, 

The OnePlus Nord has dual cameras on the front.  It has a 32MP camera paired with a Samsung M51 8MP sensor.


The Samsung M51 has a massive 7,000mAh battery, the largest ever on a smartphone.  However, the massive battery takes about two hours to fully charge with 25W fast charging.  On the other hand,

The OnePlus Nord has a 4,115mAh battery that supports 30W warp charging.  It takes less to charge the phone completely.  Also, OnePlus claims the phone can charge anywhere from 0 to 70 percent in just 30 minutes.  But the larger battery life of the Samsung M51 ensures you stay away from the charging point.

Storage and price

Samsung M51 6GB + 128GB variant priced at Rs 24,999.  And the 8GB + 128GB variant is priced at Rs 26,999.  OnePlus Nord has three variants.  6GB + 64GB, 8GB + 128GB, 12GB + 256GB are priced at Rs 24,999, 27,999 and 29,999 respectively.
