Samsung Galaxy M31 – Full Review, 64 MP Quad Camera (with Samples)

by birtanpublished on February 6, 2021

So after the galaxy m31 the m30 s we now have the m31 it comes in two variants both with six gigs of ram but one with 64 gigs onboard storage and the other with 128 so in the box you do get an adaptive fast charger this is the 15 watt charger and then you do get a type C data same thing and charging cable and that's about it you don't get your phones and you do not get any rubber casing just a very minimal packaging with bare essentials the good part is there is a headphone jack so you can use your old earphones and now let's move on with the rest of the review and let's start by talking about the build quality

And the design of the m31 now m-series is known for their extreme plastic build and almost up to the M 13 M 30s and then feel as premium but the M 31 for some reason looks better than those even from some distance you can't tell whether it's plastic or glass or ceramic but then if you're going to put on a case anyway then does it matter now it has a fingerprint magnet especially discolor so definitely put on a case if you plan on buying the black at the back you have a quad camera set up inside a rectangular housing and the primary lens is at 64 megapixel we'll talk all about

The camera samples and everything towards the end of the video the phone despite its 6.4 inch screen and a humungous 6000 mAh battery is still manageable to use with just one hand sure it's not super comfortable and two hands would be preferred but as I said it's manageable and even the weight of the device is surprisingly low for a 6000 mAh battery but it is on the higher side and it doesn't have a physical fingerprint sensor as opposed to an in display fingerprint sensor that you generally see but you know what it's actually faster so I don't mind and

While there are no your phones in the box you do get a headphone jack so you can use your old ones and that's the u-shaped notch that you get in the front housing the front facing camera and again all samples will be shown later also the m31 is not ip68 water and dust resistant and the sim tray can actually take two SIM cards and one micro SD card to expand storage all three at the same time so you get maximum flexibility in terms of your SIM card configuration the n21 features Android 10 Samsung you I do point oh right out of the box

And that's great because it's the first m-series phone to do that but there are some features that are missing for example secure folder link to windows and screen recorder all three are sort of unavailable there is Dolby Atmos which is great and it delivers a superior sound experience of really glad Samsung is putting this on on its smartphones and now jumping onto the display it's got a pretty big six point four inch Super AMOLED screen and it's perhaps the best green you will get across this price range colors a great screen is really bright so if you're

Someone who is always on the move watching videos watching movies or just reading content you would have absolutely no issues watching the screen even in bright sunlight the bezels are quite thin on the sides as well as on the top so you know the overall experience of using the screen is quite good except for the chin which is still pretty thick but yeah you tend to not notice it when you're actually used to the screen and you get used to it pretty quickly and talking about performance real quick so you get Exynos nine six one one but six gigs of ram by the way

That's the same processor that you get in the galaxy a 51 which is you know an a series smartphone from samsung so that's good and here's the good part babji automatically set the graphic level to high after seeing that the processor is quite capable so that's what really matters guys you know does the game loading or the game launching maybe a little slow and not as fast as you know what you get with snapped like an 855 on the one class and other high-end phones but once the game is loaded the gameplay is smooth there is no lag in terms of touch response to

Touch or even network so the phone is able to optimize all of these resources pretty well to deliver a great gaming experience and yeah when we talk about you know launching apps closing the apps quickly switching between apps you know let's say I open the camera and I could be able to take a couple of shots all of that seems decently fast so no complaints there and finally coming to the quad camera setup you get a 64 megapixel primary lens and 8 megapixel ultra wide lens a 5 megapixel macro lens and a 5 megapixel depth sensor for beautiful background blur

Shots and here are some samples that I took using the Bragg primary lens and these shots are actually quiet nice for its price point I mean for a fifteen thousand rupee phone to be able to take such good photos I'm pretty impressed now the primary lens does have a bit of a yellow shade to it so the white balance is slightly on the warmer side which you can obviously color correct but you shouldn't have to so I'm hoping Samsung would fix this with a software update but otherwise great shots all of these are available for download the link will

Be in the description below now these are shots I took using the ultra wide lens the images on the left are primary lens and the images on the right are ultra wide and you can see that the ultra wide lens actually has a better dynamic range so they look better in terms of color contrast as compared to the primary lens but yeah it's got a different purpose which is more to do with landscape photography so this is primary lens and when you go ultra wide that's how it looks it's really nice and massive and immersive and again the dynamic range is so much better again

Another example this was during you know late evening primary lens and there you go that's the ultra wide lens so again all images are available for download go ahead the hero shots taken using the depth sensor and I have to say that it's actually very accurate the edge detection and background foreground separation is very impressive you can see that in this picture as well so that's the again it's the depth sensor at the back of the camera I'm not talking about the front camera just yet but the background separation the blurring is excellent and absolutely

Impressed and your shots taking using the macro lens and you can see that I've had some difficulty focusing because it's a fixed focal length I had to take a couple of shots to get this right and this one was totally out of focus so it gets a little difficult but it's probably going to be the least used now here are some selfies taken using the front-facing camera with beauty mode on and you can see that the front cameras archieve done a pretty good job the exposure might be a little on the higher side but you can always turn that down and here are some live

Focus selfies are at dock using the front-facing camera well my friend took there has been some issues with edge detection but the hair is special so if you see around the hair the edge detection goes a little off but otherwise I think great pictures overall one thing I want to point out is that the HDR mode for the primary lens only works in the 16 megapixel mode and not in the 64 mega pixel mode so if you switched over to 64 megapixel HDR would go away what that means is that if this is how it looks in the 16 megapixel photo because that dr was on this is how

Washed out it would look wet this is the 4 megapixel lens although it has more detail but you can again apply it filters and just make it a lot better and yeah there is a scene optimizer that's built into the phone so it can recognize up to 30 scenes I think and it would you know automatically tune your image to look the best talking about the video capabilities of the phone it can shoot up to 4k videos at 30fps and 1080p at 30fps you can also shoot videos in ultra wide mode which is great and here is a footage that I shot using the m31 in 1080p again 30fps because that's the

Only option I have you will see that the white balance keep changing depending upon the lighting available which is a little yeah see now it certainly goes warm from cool and then if I point to the sky it's not really taking that in but if I tap on the sky for focus it suddenly gets into you know changes the contrast but I think in general for this price point the video is quite nice and you really can expect a lot from you know in terms of video capability and even when I'm going really close to the subject no problems in focusing as such and another thing is that scard super

Steady mode so the best part is that you could shake your phone and it will keep your footage stable just look at how it is in the video right now so here's a direct comparison the left is regular video on the right is super steady video which is a lot smoother but also darker because it uses the ultra wide lens to shoot that video and now quickly jumping on to the battery it's got a 6000 mAh battery guys and that's the battery to beat even the mTOR es was a battery monster so was the m30 and people have give an amazing positive response when it comes to battery life on these phones

So if you're looking for a phone that's going to last you the entire day even more than today with heavy use this is the phone to go for it'll be really tough to drain this battery out and yeah you've got a fast charger although it's just 15 watt but it's good enough to charge your phone quickly so overall I think the galaxy m31 is a very well-rounded device for a 15 thousand rupee smartphone segment big screen great battery life of really good set of cameras and just overall a really good experience that's pretty much what you could ask for in this price segment I

Think all that the m31 relax is a slightly better processor and a 25 watt charger to charge that massive battery and it is for Beatty perfect fifteen thousand rupee phone that you could get anyway that's it from me guys on the m21 if you've got any questions feel free to comment them in the section below I see you in the next one and thank you guys
