Samsung Galaxy A31 – Another Win for Samsung!
Staff Writer / 29-09-2020 / Samsung galaxy a31
Samsung has had massive success with its Galaxy A-series, which launched in 2019. To keep following up on that success is not easy, but Samsung seems to keep doing it. No exception to this trend is the new Samsung Galaxy A31, the little sibling of the A51 and successor to last year’s popular A30.
Under the Hood
The A31 packs a punch beneath its exterior with a Mediatek Octa-core processor which is more than sufficient for everyday use. It is backed by 4BG of RAM and 128GB of onboard memory, expandable up to 512GB with a microSD card. Apps run smoothly without any noticeable lag, but it’s definitely geared to casual gamers.
Screen and Body
The most obvious external feature of the A31 is that its heavier than other smartphones in the mid-tier category. Even though it’s taller than most devices, it’s still comfortable to hold and navigate with your thumb. It’s quite slim at just 8.6-mm thick but is 159.3-mm tall and 73.1-mm wide. Expect a large 6.4-inch Infinity-U display with a wide aspect ratio which means your screen is filled with rich, beautiful visuals. It is available in two striking colours - Prism Crush Blue and Prism Crush Black.
Four Camera Setup
The A31 is very similar to the A51 with its rear four-camera setup. The main lens is a 48MP camera for crisp images at any time of the day or night. It has the 8MP Ultra Wide camera which captures a 123-degree field of view. The 5MP Macro camera is perfect for highly refined close-ups and the 5MP Depth camera with its Live Focus allows you to take pictures where the subject stands out, leaving the rest in a slight blur. Selfie lovers would find it difficult to resist the A31’s 20MP front-facing camera that captures high-resolution photos.
Beast of a Battery
The battery is probably the reason for the extra weight and height of the A31 because Samsung paired this device with a whopping 5,000 mAh battery. The average user may get two-days worth of usage on a full charge or three-days if they use the phone sparingly. This is the same battery Samsung uses on their flagship devices.
As always, security is a major factor with smartphones. The Galaxy A31 has an on-screen fingerprint scanner which recognises your unique fingerprint to grant you access to your device.
The Samsung Galaxy A31 is a great mid-tier smartphone with some flagship features thrown in for good measure. The battery life and display alone make the A31 an irresistible option.
