Mobile phone producer, Samsung added a new phone to their budget segment, they announced new M-series. Samsung started selling its new Galaxy M31 in Korea for $200. They gave it a competitive processor, equipped with a well-lasting battery, and four cameras, so you get a good pack of technologies with this price and especially if you compare it with other phones in this price segment. Here is a review of it.


Actually, Galaxy M30 gave the design for this Samsung Galaxy M31. It’s tough to find any difference between them. Samsung gives us a 6,4-inch Infinity U display, the real problem that scopes around it is huge.

Galaxy M31 feels excellent in hands, easy to use it. You can find a 32MP front camera on the front, volume buttons on one side, SIM card slot and power button on the other side(and place for micro SD card). You also have as usual single speakers, charging slot — USB Type-c and place for audio 3,5 mm everything standard. On the backside, you can see four cameras, sensor for fingerprint, and of course, Samsung’s name.


As we mentioned earlier, Galaxy M31 uses a 6,4-inch display, full HD+ AMOLED screen, which has a pixel resolution of 2340×1080. We get it with special protection on display. As usual, it has a filter of harmful blue lights, it helps our eyes, and we can turn on the darker regime to reduce the effect on our eyes even more.(you can set up it, so it will work automatically). A good thing in it, you can use the always-on display mode, which will show some important things.
