Samsung Galaxy M31s Review | Honest User Review

 

BUILD QUALITY.
Superior, as it matches any S series flagship premium in classy look, strongly built for this budget amount. My hand is small but still, I found 6.5 inches display is good to handle as it is well managed for one-hand use also.

PROCESSOR.
After using for more than half a month I must say, Exynos 9611 works wonderful liquid speed when it is combined with LPDDR4X RAM technology. I have not faced any lag in PUBG or ASPHALT-9 high-end games, in medium settings which are good for battery saving. So 2.3 GHz speed was accomplished. No complaints about the budget spent.

CAMERA.
The camera is overall good. Considering the price, both the front and rear cameras are quite good. The front one is a 32 MP camera and in the rear quad setup, the primary sensor is the SONY IMX682 with an f/1.8 lens. The secondary sensor is a 12MP ultra-wide lens. And the other two are 5MP each depth & macro lens. Though it's not a camera-centric phone. However, it has some good outputs This time M series did an honest job by giving us an INTELLI camera of 64 megapixels with a Single Take feature. Samsung gives what it advertises. My usage of Camera is high & I found no complaints at all in focusing a shoot. Good color saturated. Well bright night shots. Macro shots r OSM. The depth & clarity of 64 megapixels is more developed in this M31s model.

DISPLAY:
No other brand phone can come close to Samsung one in this category even when it has a 60-hertz refresh rate. Look wise it doesn't feel like an M series phone. With the Samsung SuperAmoled display, you can truly trust the amazing view angle. Now in the M31s feature of Widevine L Certification, you can enjoy all those global Dolby theatre experiences. I found it reliable for my 1920p to 4k level of movie watching without any distraction due to the Infinite O display which gives Full-Screen Ratio.

BATTERY:
The main benefit of this midrange M series is its massive 6000mAh battery which gave me enough juice for nearly 3 days continuously. 6000mah battery with 25W fast charging is awesome. (you get reverse charging as well).

SOUND QUALITY:
After using for hours I found the Speaker this time Samsung made is much improved with Bass Stereo which was missing earlier. The in-ear delivers your ear the pure Dolby Atmos with clear precision and crystal clear bass effect.

FINGERPRINT:
Side Mounted fingerprint scanner is quicker & convenient than the under-display ones. It doesn't take a second also to open. Even Face Unlock is faster. FP sensor works well although it can store only 3 fingerprints.

M31s is actually A51 without on-screen fp. It has better specs than A51 which retails around 8-9k than M31s which makes this phone one of a kind. The dimensions are also the same as A51. So you can use the same tempered glass but can’t use A51 back cover for M31s since it should have the cutout for the side-mounted fp scanner. Base variant with 128gb storage & 6GB RAM will surely be more than enough for most of the users. If not then one can always insert a Micro SD card ( SIM1 + SIM2 + SD card type slot) Presence of a headphone jack is still an advantage. All aspects of the phone are on par or above the next segment. THE infinity O camera cut out looks way better than the predecessor's m30 and makes the phone look gorgeous. Overall a great phone. Value for money I should say. If you are not a heavy gamer this is the best choice around.

Pros:-
  1. The battery department is top-notch
  2. 6000 mAh Powerful battery
  3. 25 watt super fast Charging
  4. USB C to C charging cable with reverse charging.
Cons: -
  1. Samsung should have used at least Gorilla glass 5 instead of the 3.
  2. The Exynos 9611 chipset is the same as the predecessor's M30. Snapdragon chipset would have been appreciated.
  3. No OIS or EIS is available for either of the cameras
  4. No NFC/wireless charging/water resistance rating (I know demanding these at this price point is ridiculous as of 2020, just mentioned to inform)
  5. The packaging is pretty cheap and the biggest con is that it doesn't come with a TPU case.
  6. Complete plastic body or "glass tic".
