The Galaxy A51 has been crowned in the world the best-selling budget phone back in 2020, then we’re happy to see £ 90 off the asking price of the A51 and £ 104 from his brother A71 in Amazon in progress Prime Day Sale. You can now pick up the A51 for just £ 239.29, and the A71 for £ 315.
Although this isn’t really the most expensive we’ve ever seen the A51 and A71, it’s close enough, which makes it an excellent time to take a deal on one of Samsung’s most popular phones, even though we’ve recently seen A52 and A72 introduced.
While maintaining that a better value can be found by lesser-known producers in the budget to mid-range (see our best budget phone and the best mid-range phone round-ups for more information), for many users the only acceptable alternative to an iPhone is a Samsung, and we feel it. No judgment here.
To take advantage of these deals you must be a member of Amazon Prime, but you can sign up for a free 30-day trial (and don’t worry if you’ve had it before, as you can sign up once every 12 months).
Expect the business to continue until 23:59 on Tuesday 22 June, but don’t wait too long as we can see this selling quickly.
Samsung Galaxy A51: Our Verdict
At first impressions, the design is amazing and great cameras make the Galaxy A51 a really exciting device. In good lighting, the latter produces regular, wide-angle shots that can rival phones twice the price.
The software is also great, with One UI really coming into its own on this big display. However, 4 GB of RAM is not enough to power the phone, especially when combined with an average processor.
We also think that Samsung should give priority to performance over emerging technologies like in-display fingerprint scanner, the latter proving to be a failure here.
However, Samsung fans will not be disappointed if they buy this phone.

Samsung Galaxy A71: Our Vermento
The basic specification here is really solid, and the compromises – plastic backing, HD display, no wireless charging or waterproofing – are all on points that are less important to most users.
The A71’s strengths are particularly clear when held against the more expensive S10 Lite. Both phones have the same display, storage, battery and main functions. The S10 Lite has RAM and a slightly faster processor, more OIS for the camera, but the A71 gets more megapixels, a snazzier design and a headphone jack.
If you can ignore the brand appeal of the S and Note series, the A71 is the flagship phone in Samsung’s mid-range offering.
