Samsung Galaxy M31s: A perfect balance.
Crisp AMOLED display, big battery and a price that justifies all.
Since its appearance in February 2019, the Samsung Galaxy M series has proved to be the mid-range masters. For an Indian smartphone user, the South Korean tech giant is providing a great alternative if the person plans to switch from Chinese budget phones.
Let me introduce you to the recently launched star performer, The Samsung Galaxy M31s. Samsung launched this monster smartphone in July this year and with its out of the box specifications, it has certainly become a mid-range favourite.
Starting at a price of just Rs.19,499 (for 6 GB/128 GB Variant), the phone gives a premium look with a 6.5-inch infinity-O-display with a super AMOLED display, elevating standards. You won’t be finding a notch for the front-facing camera which is a 32 MP shooter, but a hole punched neatly at the top centre. The major camera highlights a quad-camera setup with a 64 MP (megapixels) primary camera,12 MP for ultra-wide,5 MP for depth sensing and a 5 MP for macro shots. 4K videography with both the cameras is a boon we find in a mid-range device.
Powered with Exynos 9611 octa-core processor, which is a slightly dated processor, but delivers a good performance. Along with the usual sensors, dual 4G and VoLTE, what comes completely unexpected is a massive 6,000 mAh battery. The box contains a 25W USB Type-C charger with reverse charging. This is a first for the M-series. The software is tidy, the One UI 2.1 and runs on Android 10.
With an extraordinary deal in battery, processor, camera, and undoubtedly, the price segment, Samsung has packed a punch into the highly competitive smartphone market. If you have a budget to give or take Rs.20,000, I will definitely suggest that this beast should be worthy of your choice.
