Galaxy M31 short review

Let’s talk about another Galaxy M series phone. Galaxy M31 is a successor of Galaxy M30s but both have the same processor inside. The newly launched Samsung Galaxy M31 is powered by Exynos 9611 processor and priced at Rs 15,999 for 6GB of Ram and 128 GB inbuilt storage. So let’s find out in what way Galaxy M31 is a successor and Is It Worth buying or not?

Is It Worth buying Samsung Galaxy M31?

Galaxy M31 is priced at 16k and it has Exynos 9611 Processor, Quad Camera setup, whopping 6,000 mAh battery, Super AMOLED display, with all these things you’re also getting Samsung brand. So if you want Samsung Branded phone with huge battery life then yes Galaxy M31 is totally worth buying but if not then don’t waste your money.

Now, if you want Samsung branded phone below 20k and still, you’re confused then let’s talk in-depth about Galaxy M31 and find out, some reason to buy this battery beast.

Samsung Galaxy M31: Performance

Galaxy M31 short review

I don’t want to say again but still, Galaxy M31 is powered by Exynos 9611 which we have seen in Galaxy M30s, so same processor, no changes here. By the way, the chipset has Mali-G72 MP3 GPU and Octa-Core Cortex-A73 @2.4 GHz CPU inside, so you won’t get any problem while playing games. It’s running on the latest OneUI 2.0 based on Android 10 out of the box.

Now, if you compare this Exynos 9611 to Snapdragon 712 or even with 710 then any day I would buy a smartphone with Snapdragon 712 but that doesn’t mean Exynos 9611 is a bad processor, it can handle almost every single game. The things are, in 2020 this Exynos 9611 is not worth at 16k but still, if you want Samsung branded phone then I won’t say much.

Samsung Galaxy M31: Cameras

Galaxy M31s

I would say, it’s slightly better then Galaxy M30s not a very good, it’s slightly above good. If you have used Galaxy M30s or want to buy a camera phone below 20k then you can check out the POCO X2 or newly launched Galaxy M31s.

By the way, the phone has its own branded 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, 5MP Marco lens, and 5MP depth sensor while on the front side, it has 32MP selfie shooter.

Just to clarify, you won’t get the flagship level result just because the phone has a 64MP sensor. So don’t fall for it because most of the Android smartphone makers are using a 64MP sensor just to market. Overall, if you’re a casual user and don’t care about the camera a lot then the camera won’t be a problem for you.

Samsung Galaxy M31: Battery & Build Quality

This is where Galaxy M31 shines, the phone has a huge 6,000 mAh non-removable battery with only 15W fast charging support and yes the 15W charger is supplied in the box.

I do use this paragraph in ‘Is It Worth‘ series, so don’s mind “the battery life depends on your phone use if you every day play games for 6 hours then you need to charge a phone every 6 hours but if you’re like me and don’t use the phone very often then it will last for a day.”

This phone can easily last for two days but of course, it depends on what you do on your smartphone every day. Galaxy M31 only has 15W charging support, I mean we’re getting 18W fast charging support at 10k and Samsung is only given 15W.

That 6,000 will take some time to charge 100%, so if they have provided 20W charging support then it would have been great.

Talking about build, Samsung has used corning gorilla glass 3 to protect the front display and on the rear side, Plastic. Glass would have been great but this is what Samsung has given at 16k.

Conclusion: Worth it or not?

Samsung has launched a balanced phone this time. The galaxy M31 has great battery life, good processor, good camera quality, plastic build, now you can tell it’s a Samsung branded balanced phone. I don’t recommend this to everyone expect Samsung lovers.

The Galaxy M31 has the best display under 20k, best means best, I don’t think any company will beat what Samsung has provided here but still, it’s not worth at 16k price. If Samsung has launched this phone at 14k then it would have been a killer deal.

  1. Why all the mobile brands making only big screen size handset. It is so uncomfortable to use by one hand.
    Any suggestion for mid range smartphone having less than 6inch display size.

    • Every single Android smartphone comes with above 6-inches display, so I don’t think you will find a small mobile on android platform.

      If you want a small device, check out iPhones.

  2. you said wrong in this price range also Samsung has given something which makes it worth buying because another Chinese brand only focusing on games and smoothness not something about display or touch or camera if you thing camer ais good in realme 6 that’s what make it wrong because the camera of Samsung a21s is bad not in m31 I have seen some images of m31 camera so

    • I mean if you can get POCO X2 at the same price then there is no point to spend money
      on Galaxy M31 unless you want a non-Chinese smartphone.

      Also, if the phone has a good processor then it will last for long whereas
      Galaxy M31 or even M31s has Exynos 9611 which is not the that bad processor but after year,
      the phone won’t perform well.

      I know, Samsung produces a great display but you can’t just buy a smartphone because
      it has the best display, you have to see overall performance.
      In short, right now Galaxy M31 is not value for money device but if you want a non-Chinese phone then it’s great.

  3. I bought Samsung Galaxy M31 and even before its 1.5 months, the touchscreen went off totally so the phone was useless (google for it, this model has a technical problem with the touchscreen). Weird than this, the authorized service centre accuses me of using unauthorized software in my phone; which I have never done. They try to charge me for their fault.
