Samsung Galaxy M31 Mobile Phone; Sim Free Smartphone - Blue [Amazon Exclusive], (UK Version)
About this deal
Having gotten accustomed to using the Pixel 3a XL’s streamlined and near flawless version of Android 10. Samsung’s custom skin feels very clunky, even if it’s not the worst out there. Since this is how a regular user would use the phone, you can expect a similar experience. Apart from keeping itself charged for longer durations, the massive battery can power other gadgets on the go. The Type-C to USB Type-C cable that is shipped with the phone comes in handy for charging other gadgets in case required. Video is also a bit of a mixed bag. Amazingly, the Galaxy M31 can shoot in 4K, but the 4K mode is incompatible with the camera’s in-built stabilisation, so you really need a gimbal to get the most out of it. While video stabilisation is available when shooting in HD, the process seemed to bring the fps rate down to a screeching halt, so it’s best avoided here. Should you buy the Samsung Galaxy M31?

In addition, the 6.4” Infinity-U super AMOLED display combined with Dolby Atmos sound makes for an immersive and cinematic viewing experience. Inside the Samsung Galaxy M31, you’ll find one of Samsung’s homebrew Exynos 9611 chipsets, a generous 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 1TB via microSD. We’ve already seen this processor make an appearance in the Galaxy A51, as well as the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, and Android feels every bit as responsive in operation here, as it did on those devices.
If you’re looking for an affordable smartphone, chances are you’ve been eyeing up the likes of the Moto G8 or the Moto G8 Pro, but the Samsung Galaxy has them both beat on two crucial factors: battery life and the display.
For instance, there’s very little bloatware with the exception of Samsung’s own variety of apps which tend to have their uses, although why I’d ever need to use the Galaxy Store when Google’s App Store is right there, is beyond me. The chipset does not appear capable of handling heavy-duty tasks and is not ideal for graphic-intensive games. My attempt to multi-task on the device while editing a small video clip appeared tough to handle for the phone, which went into a bit of a drag and performed inconsistently. What does this mean for real-world battery life? Well, you should comfortably hit two days of use on a single charge, with perhaps a little bit of wiggle room on day three, too. On a personal note, I accidentally left it switched on in my desk drawer for an entire weekend, and it only dropped 2% of its total charge (without a SIM card inside). Samsung Galaxy M31 review: Cameras
On the rear, Samsung has gone for a minimalist design, which is something that I liked given the heavy-duty stuff that's par for the course these days. All you have is the quad-camera setup and LED flash housed in a rectangular camera module and the Samsung branding. London, United Kingdom – April 29, 2020 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of the new Galaxy M31 in the UK  . The newest addition to the Galaxy M series comes with a powerful 64MP Quad Camera, a long-lasting 6,000mAh (typical) 1 battery and vivid super AMOLED Display.
I kid of course, I don’t happen to share the same disdain for the inclusion of macro cameras on smartphones that other critics do, and it’s fun to snap an artsy shot of a bug or a flower every now and then, but let’s face it, the real meat and potatoes are the ultra-wide and main cameras. The Galaxy M31’s cameras are very, very good for the price. No matter the lighting conditions, the Galaxy M31 captures pictures that are filled to the brim with intricate details, with well-judged exposure and pleasingly-accurate colour rendition. There isn’t much visual noise either, even inside when the light isn’t quite so abundant.
