Samsung Galaxy A31 Smartphone in review: Quad-camera for 200 Euros (~$239)

Long-distance runner. Not only does the Samsung Galaxy A31 offer a large super AMOLED display, but the battery is also quite large at 5,000 mAh. The exact opposite of this is the price, since it's quite low at about 200 Euros (~$239). Our review will show the performance that can be expected in the end.

Samsung Galaxy A31

As one of the largest smartphone manufacturers, Samsung covers almost every price range and every consumer group. Therefore, the range includes both low-cost phones, like the Galaxy A41, as well as extremely expensive models like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra.

Our current test model is known as the Samsung Galaxy A31, and is rather aimed at price-conscious buyers. For about 200 Euro (~$239), users get a MediaTek Helio P65, an ARM Mali-G52 MP2 graphics unit, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of eMMC flash storage. In addition, there's a quad camera and a large battery, with which the A31 must be able to face the competitors listed below. You can add more smartphones from our database under each section.

Connectivity - Phone with audio jack

With the MediaTek Helio P65, Samsung has chosen inexpensive hardware for the Galaxy A31, which already belonged to the mid-priced segment in mid-2019. In addition, there's 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. For an additional charge, the A31 is also available with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, though.

The existing microSD card slot allows users to use memory cards with a size of up to 512 GB, according to the manufacturer. In addition to the memory card, there's also space for two nano SIMs that can also be used with VoLTE and VoWLAN. However, Samsung has omitted a notification LED.

The Samsung Galaxy A31 also has a combined 3.5 mm audio jack for the use of wired headsets and a USB Type-C port, which internally only supports the slow 2.0 standard. In addition, DRM Widevine L1 is available for the playback of high-resolution streaming content.

Software - OneUI not up to date with Android

Android 10 runs on the Galaxy A31 with Samsung's own user interface, OneUI version 2.1. Even beginners will quickly find their way around with the latter, since the adjustments are essentially limited to custom apps and a modified menu navigation.

The preinstalled third-party applications include Netflix and Facebook, which can only be deactivated in the settings menu. With the Galaxy Store, Samsung also operates its own marketplace for apps, and the Galaxy Game Launcher can be used to manage installed games.

At the time of testing, the security patches were at the level of July 1, 2020.

To determine its own location, the Samsung Galaxy A31 can make use of GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, and Galileo. Using the GPS Test app, we achieve an accuracy of up to four meters outdoors.

On our mandatory bike ride, we compare the A31 with our reference device, the Garmin Edge 520. The Galaxy smartphone can achieve a similar accuracy in curves here, but it shows significant deviations on long straight roads.

Nevertheless, the Samsung phone is well suited for simple, everyday navigation tasks.

Telephone and call quality - Voice calls without issues

Samsung uses its own telephone app on the A31. It shows a numeric keypad for the direct input of phone numbers. Two additional tabs allow you to view your recent calls and your own contacts.

During conversations, the Galaxy smartphone offers a medium volume level, and voices are transmitted clearly. Ambient noise is reliably filtered out too.

Cameras - Good photos for an affordable smartphone

Front-facing camera sample
Front-facing camera sample

Samsung equips the Galaxy A31 with a 48 MP main camera. It is supported by an 8 MP sensor for wide-angle shots, a 5 MP sensor for macro pictures, and another 5 MP sensor for depth information. This allows close-up photography of our test subject with many details and good-looking colors. Fine structures can also be discerned.

Objects in our panoramic image show clean edges and are clearly separated from each other, but the image is a little too dark overall. Subjects shot with the wide-angle lens also show many details, but slight blurring is noticeable at the edges. In addition, there is a noticeable fisheye effect. Under poor lighting conditions, our test subject is only dimly visible, and only a few details are captured.

Besides various filter options, HDR, and resolution settings, the A31 also offers a Pro mode that allows users to make adjustments to the ISO value, white balance, and brightness. A timer function and an automatic scene optimizer are also available.

With the front-facing camera, users can take portrait pictures with a resolution of 20 MP. These show many details and reproduce colors relatively naturally. Users also have access to various filter options and beauty effects here too. However, the Pro mode is restricted to the main camera.

The Samsung Galaxy smartphone produces video recordings with a similar quality as our test photos show. The camera can easily compensate for the change between light and dark scenes and stabilize minor camera shake. The available image formats are 16:9 at a resolution of 1920x1080 or 1280x720 pixels, 20:9 at 1920x864 pixels and 1:1 at 1440x1440 pixels.

Under controlled lighting conditions, our photo of the ColorChecker Passport shows that the Galaxy A31's camera captures colors much brighter than they should be. The test chart is captured under the same conditions with slight weaknesses. While the center of the image is sharp and full of detail, the edges of the image become increasingly weaker in both contrast and sharpness.

Input devices and handling - Functional in-screen fingerprint scanner

Samsung uses its own keyboard app in the A31. It offers many functions that will be familiar to users of Google's GBoard and other keyboard applications. It can be customized in a variety of ways to suit individual needs and is well suited for entering longer texts. The touchscreen registers every touch input reliably and is very well suited for wider swipe gestures due to its smooth surface.

To unlock the Galaxy smartphone, users have an in-screen fingerprint scanner at their disposal; it was able to easily recognize stored fingerprints in our test at all times. Face recognition also worked reliably.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 238 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 238 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 238 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

As is typical for OLEDs, the black level and contrast ratio of the Galaxy A31's Super AMOLED panel are excellent and rather no longer measurable. In addition, the display also shows colors in a very balanced way under the default settings.

Users can influence the display with the predefined modes "Vivid" and "Natural" or freely combine the color components on an RGB scale.

Performance - Galaxy A31 is up to everyday tasks

Samsung equips the Galaxy A31 with a MediaTek Helio P65 and 4 GB of memory. An ARM Mali-G52 MP2 graphics unit and 64 GB of internal storage are also included. This equipment is sufficient for most everyday tasks and ensures a smooth system operation.

However, the benchmark tests show that the performance offered is only moderate compared to the competition. In our test field, the Galaxy A31 only manages to take one of the lower places and occasionally alternates with the almost identically equipped Samsung Galaxy A41.

* ... smaller is better

Samsung offers the Galaxy A31 with 64 GB and 128 GB of eMMC flash storage. The smaller version is built into our test model; it offers quite good read and write speeds in the storage benchmark.

A microSD card reader can be used to expand storage space. With our reference memory card, the Toshiba Exceria Pro M501, it achieves very good read and write speeds, with which the A31 can place itself in the upper range of our test field.

Games - Gaming with reduced details

The Samsung Galaxy A31 can run modern games smoothly. However, users should reduce the graphics settings in favor of a higher frame rate when it comes to very demanding titles. During longer gaming sessions, repeated frame-rate drops occur, which can even be well below 30 fps at high detail levels.

The Armajet game that we tested with Gamebench also shows that the initially high frame rate of almost 60 fps can't be maintained over prolonged periods of time. In the games themselves, using the touchscreen to control them was always possible without issues.

In review: Samsung Galaxy A31. Test device provided by:

The Samsung Galaxy A31 proves to be a successful smartphone in our test. Performance is more than sufficient for most everyday applications, and the camera performance is also convincing for a device in this price range. Users who find the version that we tested with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage too limited can also choose a version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

With the Samsung Galaxy A31, buyers get an enduring and affordable smartphone with a vivid Super AMOLED display.

In addition, there's the very good battery life, the averagely bright Super AMOLED display, and the fact that both a memory card and two nano SIM cards can be used simultaneously. If we ignore the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC class leader, the Samsung Galaxy A31 can certainly hold its own against the competition.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.
