Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Review

Pros
  • 64MP quad-camera setup
  • 6,000 mAh battery
Cons
  • Same old Exynos 9611 processor

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Design

Samsung has added a new smartphone under the Galaxy M series. The new Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime flaunts a 6.4-inch FHD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. You’ll find a waterdrop notch on the display that houses the selfie camera. As the prime edition of the original Galaxy M31, one will find a similar design.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Processor Performance

The Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime draws power from the octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC based on the 10nm process along with Mali-G72MP3 GPU, 6GB RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage space. There’s scope for further storage expansion up to 512GB via a microSD card. The Exynos 9611 is one of the popular processors found on several Samsung smartphones. The Galaxy M31 Prime can easily handle your day-to-day tasks, but its performance is mediocre when it comes to gaming. You might even face some lag or hanging also.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Camera Performance

Samsung has included a quad-camera setup for the Galaxy M31 Prime. The phone packs a 64MP primary Samsung GW1 sensor with LED flash and f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP secondary 123-degree ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 5MP macro lens with f/2.4 aperture. A 32MP selfie camera with a Sony IM616 sensor with f/2.0 aperture is at the front of this smartphone. On the whole, the Galaxy M31 Prime can take some good photos, at least in a good lit environment.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Important Features/Highlights

Some of the other features on the Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime includes the large 6,000 mAh battery coupled with 15W fast charging support. The phone also packs a fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, support Dolby Atmos audio, and so on. On the software front, the Galaxy M31 Prime runs Android 10 with OneUI custom skin on top.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Price-To-Specs Ratio

Samsung has priced the Galaxy M31 Prime at Rs. 16,499 that comes in a single variant of 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. Falling under Rs. 20K, the phone has a lot of competition in this segment. Devices like the Realme 7 Pro, Poco X3, Redmi Note 9 Pro are some of the examples. Of course, the Galaxy M31 Prime has more to offer – especially in terms of battery and improved screen resolution, which make it worth the price tag.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime: Verdict

With that said, the mid-range segment is quite crowded in the Indian market, making it difficult to choose one. Samsung is a well-known brand for a diverse range of smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime is a good choice for the asking price, yet, don’t hesitate to look for other options as well. Smartphones from Poco, OnePlus, and others also make an attractive buy.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
