So after a period of waiting (in early March 2021, Galaxy M51 users in Russia have been upgraded to One UI 3.1), Galaxy M51 users in Vietnam have officially received the update One UI 3.1 ( Android 11) latest from Samsung. So Galaxy M51 to One UI 3.1, is the performance better? Does the battery have more buffalo or is there any new feature? Please read the article below to find the answer.

The article is still being updated and I will have the complete article on this Thursday (April 22, 2021). Please remember to watch and wait.

1. Samsung Galaxy M51 was able to experience One UI 3.1

Before going into the details of the article, I would like to give a quick look at the configuration parameters of the Galaxy M51, the device that I will use in today’s One UI 3.1 update review. The specifications of Galaxy M51 are as follows:

  • Operating System (before the update): OneUI 2.5 (based on Android 10).
  • CPU: Snapdragon 730G (8 nm process and 8 cores)
  • GPU: Adreno 618.
  • RAM: 8 GB.
  • Internal memory: 128 GB.

As I mentioned in the above parameters, I am holding the Galaxy M51 running One UI 2.5 (Android 10) and the device lets me go straight to One UI 3.1, which saves me from having to wait a long time. The total time for me to completely update the One UI 3.1 version (with a capacity of 1990.87 MB) for the Galaxy M51 is about 50 minutes.

2. The performance of Galaxy M51 is better optimized after One UI 3.1

After updating One UI 3.1 for Galaxy M51, I immediately score the performance of the device with 3 familiar software: GeekBench 5, 3D Mark, PC Mark to compare with One UI 2.5 version. The first is GeekBench 5 software and the results I obtained are as follows:

Galaxy M51 Geek Bench 5 performance score running One UI 2.5 (left) and One UI 3.1 (right).
Galaxy M51 Geek Bench 5 performance score running One UI 2.5 (left) and One UI 3.1 (right).

– Galaxy M51 (One UI 2.5):

  • Single point: 430 points.
  • Multi-core score: 1,628 points.

– Galaxy M51 (One UI 3.1):

  • Single point: 413 points.
  • Multi-core score: 1,574 points.

Thus, we can see that in both single-core and multi-core tests of Galaxy M51 running One UI 3.1 seem to be slightly worse than One UI 2.5 (specifically 430 / 1,628 points vs. 413 / 1,547 points). .

Likewise, the performance score scored by the Galaxy M51’s PC Mark running One UI 3.1 is about 1,000 points lower than the One UI 2.5 (7,816 points versus 6,860 points specifically). However, the 3D Mark software shows that the 2D and 3D graphics scores of Galaxy M51 after updating One UI 3.1 have increased significantly, as follows:

Galaxy M51 3D Mark performance score running One UI 2.5 (left) and One UI 3.1 (right).

– Galaxy M51 (One UI 2.5):

  • 2D graphic score (OpenGL ES 3.0): 172,307 points.
  • 3D Graphics Score (Vulkan): 337.405 points.

– Galaxy M51 (One UI 3.1):

  • 2D graphic score (OpenGL ES 3.0): 318,465 points.
  • 3D Graphics Score (Vulkan): 353,584 points.

After the performance tests with 3rd party software, I will continue to try the 3 most popular games today, namely Lien Quan Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile and all data about each game. I will leave it here for you to follow.

  • Arena of valor

In the first game, Lien Quan Mobile, my Galaxy M51, before updating to One UI 3.1, played very smoothly and after updating to the latest software version, the device is still promoting the same performance. All operations in the game, solo or 5 vs 5 combat, cannot make this smartphone difficult, it must be said that the Snapdragon 730G chip has very impressive performance.

Of course, with Snapdragon 730G, the Galaxy M51 can fully enable the High FPS feature in this game. According to the FPS chart that we measured, the Galaxy M51 above both One UI versions achieved 60 FPS and remained stable during gameplay.

  • PUBG Mobile

The graphics settings of PUBG Mobile game on Galaxy M51 are in One UI 2.5 (left) and One UI 3.1 (right).

Continuing in the first-person shooter genre game, PUBG Mobile, the difference between the Galaxy M51 running One UI 3.1 and the Galaxy M51 running One UI 2.5 has become clearer. Although the graphics settings in both One UI versions are the same (I have reduced the image quality to be able to play more stably), but the FPS of the Galaxy M51 running One UI 3.1 is stable and less frame loss compared to Galaxy M51 runs One UI 2.5, FPS ranges from 38 to 41 FPS.

Thanks to that, the lag, slight frame drop did not appear too much when I played PUBG Mobile on the Galaxy M51. Before updating to One UI 3.1, Galaxy M51 handled PUBG Mobile game not really smoothly, the FPS level fluctuated around 36-40 FPS.

  • Call of Duty Mobile

With the game Call of Duty Mobile, the Galaxy M51 after going to One UI 3.1 is less stable than before the update. Although the Galaxy M51 in both versions displays a good gaming experience, the FPS chart below shows that the Galaxy M51 running One UI 2.5 plays smoother and less frame lag than One UI 3.1.

Specifically, the FPS fluctuation level when Galaxy M51 runs One UI 2 playing Call of Duty Mobile is about 48 – 60 FPS, while at One UI 3.1 when entering the game screen, the FPS ranges from 45 – 57 FPS. The difference is present but it seems imperceptible.

3. Does Galaxy M51 battery have more buffalo after going to One UI 3.1?

Galaxy M51 is inherently one of the smartphones with the largest battery capacity today with up to 7,000 mAh figure. However, some users fear that after updating to the latest One UI version, the device may consume more power, drain the battery faster, but is that true?

To verify that question, I have tested the battery life of Galaxy M51 in both One UI versions and the specific conditions of the battery test (according to TGDD standards) are as follows:

  • Experience 4 rotating tasks including: Play Lien Quan (detailed settings), watch YouTube, surf Facebook and use Google Chrome.
  • Each task uses 1 hour.
  • Screen brightness 100%.
  • Plug in wired headphones throughout and turn on the volume to 100%.
  • Turn on WiFi and social media notifications.
  • Do not turn on battery saver, screen adaptive, GPS and Bluetooth.
  • Dot from 100% to 0%.
  • Turn on high performance mode (Game Booster).

And the results I obtained are as follows:

Battery life of the Galaxy M51 running One UI 2.5 (above) and One UI 3.1 (below).

So after the Galaxy M51 comes to One UI 3.1, it gives us a battery life of up to 14 hours and 11 minutes, much more impressive than the 13 hours and 23 minutes when it was in One UI 2.5 version. I have to praise Samsung for creating an extreme One UI version, which optimizes energy consumption on the Galaxy M51.

In addition, I have also measured the time to fully charge the 7,000 mAh battery of the Galaxy M51 before and after the One UI 3.1 update. The results as you can see in the picture above, Galaxy M51 after updating to One UI 3.1 for a slightly higher charging speed than the previous One UI version (specifically 1 hour 43 minutes compared to 1 hour 52 minutes). Because Galaxy M51 is equipped with 25W fast charging technology, I do not have to wait too long for the battery to be 100% full.

4. New features on Galaxy M51 when updating One UI 3.1

The article is still being updated and I promise you that I will have the complete article on this Saturday (April 24, 2021). Please remember to watch and wait.
