Samsung has launched several mid-range smartphones of its Galaxy A series this year. These smartphones have been specifically launched keeping in mind the mid-range users. The Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 were launched at the beginning of the year. Both these smartphones were launched with different camera designs and centrally aligned punch-hole display panels compared to the devices launched last year. Also, they were launched keeping in mind Gen-Z users. Both these smartphones come with India centric features, including options like many useful cards. Now the company has recently launched another smartphone Galaxy A31 in this series. Today we have brought the same review in front of you.
Why buy this smartphone?
If you go to buy a smartphone, then you mainly focus on its price, its design and the camera. So let us tell you that this smartphone comes in 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variants. You can buy it in three color options Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush Blue and Prism Crush White. It costs Rs 21,999. Talking about the design of the phone, Prism Crush design has been given in the same way as the Galaxy A51 and A71. Design and Look Wise It looks similar to both these devices. However, it uses the Waterdrop Notch or Dot Notch feature in the front panel.
Now let's talk about the price, its price is Rs 21,999, which seems a bit more according to a mid-range smartphone. But, if we look at the overall hardware combination of the phone, then the price of this smartphone is justified. Next, we will tell you about its hardware configuration. Talking about the camera feature of the phone, the quad rear camera set-up is given in its back, whose primary sensor is 48MP and it supports up to 8x digital zoom.
Display and design
The 6.4-inch Full HD Plus Super AMOLED display panel has been used in the phone. Extremely thin bezels are placed at the top and bottom of the display. The phone's display supports 1080 x 2400 resolution. Talking about color depth, it supports 16M colors. That is, like other smartphones of Samsung, you get a better display in it. If you stream video content in it, then you get to see better brightness and color combination in its display. Samsung always uses better display in its smartphones. This is the reason that the price of the phone is slightly higher than the smartphones of Chinese brands.

After the display, we talk about the hardware configuration of the phone. The MediaTek Helio P65 Octacore processor has been used in it. The company has not launched it in India with Exynos. It is a mid-range octacore processor with a clock speed of 2GHz. With this processor you can do multi tasking. For phone gaming, it can not be called so perfect, but I did not face any problem in playing high graphics games like PUBG. The phone comes with a powerful battery of 5,000mAh.
Talking about connectivity, it has support like Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, NFC, USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack. Dolvi Atmus has also been supported in the phone which improves the audio quality.
