Review of Samsung Galaxy A31
What makes a midranger great? Probably a bright and clear screen, powerful cameras and a large battery combined with a power-efficient chipset. That's just what Samsung thinks about the Galaxy A31, which is the newest part of the Galaxy A-series to hit our doorstep.
It could be easy to confuse it for another recent Galaxy A-member based on looks alone-the A41 and a closer comparison reveals a lot of similarities.
The Galaxy A31 actually features a larger 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display, an extra 5MP macro camera to accompany the 48MP primary and 5MP ultra-wide shooters and a 5,000mAh beefier battery. These are some serious benefits for the A31 and a clear example of Samsung 's complicated naming policies in the A-series.
The package that we have is in the colorway Prism Crush Blue and comes with an unusual back gradient finish with changing colours. The retail package includes a clear case of TPU, wired earphones, USB-C cable and 15W charger. The A31 's construction seems to be all-purpose plastic and the back panel brings a slight flex that does not feel quite satisfying.
When we compare the A31 to its predecessor the A30s, we find a taller aspect ratio of 20:9 and a slimmer Infinity-U notch. At the helm, the MediaTek Helio P65 sits paired with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage.
The Galaxy A31 has all the characteristics of a strong midranger on paper but we should save the conclusions only after the full analysis.
