Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy A31

Samsung Galaxy A31 Review - Good for all your daily tasks
Source: Tech Nave English
My experience with the Samsung A31 was very good and I recommend it if you want a mid-range smartphone that has no gimmicks and will not disappoint you when you need it. I'd got as far as to say that Samsung managed what it boasted in the Galaxy A Black Pink ad: "Awesome Screen, OK Camera, Long Lasting Battery Life."

Samsung Galaxy A31 review: A good phone for the non-gamers out there
Source: Sam Mobile English
I’ll keep this short: If you’re wondering whether the Galaxy A31 is a phone you should purchase or skip, you have to ask yourself what your priorities are. If you think you will be doing any serious gaming that involves playing titles like PUBG, you are better off spending extra and buying the Galaxy A51. If your budget is tight and you’re not a heavy gamer, then the Galaxy A31 can serve you well. Just don’t expect it to excel in anything but battery life and display quality, and you will have no complaints.

60% Samsung Galaxy A31 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
I'm struggling to find a good reason for the Galaxy A31 to exist, and I honestly cannot think of one. It seems as though Samsung has launched it simply to fill the price gap between the Galaxy A50s (Review) and the Galaxy A51 (Review) — either of which would be a much better pick than the Galaxy A31. Battery life is the main standout feature here, along with the decent build quality and display.

Samsung Galaxy A31 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
Moving to the verdict, the Samsung Galaxy A31 is good for those who want a phone with attractive design, light in weight, and a good display and battery life. The Galaxy A31 is a fairly good upgrade over the Galaxy A30, the battery is upgraded, the performance is now better, and the camera is upgraded to quad-setup. But camera enthusiasts should find a better deal, you will miss the 4K, slow-motion, and 60fps video capturing capabilities.

Samsung had been making waves in the mid-range smartphone market with the Galaxy A51. I was surprised to know that it’s Samsung’s best-seller in Q1 2020, according to Canalys. Now, we have the new Galaxy A31.

ARM Mali-G52 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 6 clusters. ARM states that the G52 series is 30% faster and 15% more efficient compared to the G51 series on the same process node.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
