Camera

Camera A51

A51: standard, wide-angle, and macro lens

The Samsung Galaxy A51 has 3 cameras and a depth sensor. With the 48-megapixel standard camera, you can take fairly good pictures. Thanks to the 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, large groups and buildings also fit into your photo entirely. You can use the macro lens to take photos from very up close.

The depth sensor creates a depth-of-field effect in your photos.

Camera A41

A41: standard and wide-angle lens

The Samsung A41 has 2 cameras and a depth sensor. The 48-megapixel main camera is comparable to the one on the A51. Aside from that, the device also has an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens. This lens captures slightly less details than the wide-angle lens of the A51, but you can hardly see the difference with the naked eye. The depth sensor adds a depth-of-field effect. This looks beautiful on portrait photos, for example. Because the A41 lacks a macro lens, it's camera setup is less extensive.

Conclusion

The main advantage of the Samsung A41, is that you can easily operate it with one hand. In all other areas, the A51 has slightly more to offer. The device is more powerful and has a storage capacity for you photos, files, and apps that is twice as big. In addition, the larger battery lasts longer. You can't take professional photos with either of these devices, but the camera setup on the A51 is the more extensive of the two, thanks to the macro lens.
