Powerful battery, segment improvement and conclusion

Samsung brands the Galaxy M31 as #MegaMonster and Galaxy M31 as #WattaMonster. It shows their focus on power or battery. They do have quite a good hardware combination such as processor, RAM, and storage. Earlier the mid-range of Samsung was not that value-oriented but now people are liking their value proposition and specs sheet. Many people like the AMOLED screen’s color vibrancy and make choice based just on that. After all the visual experience and interaction matter a lot. The inclusion of such a big 6000 mAh battery and support to fast charge also pushes things to the positive side.

People like enjoying movies, series, and playing games on their smartphones, and the battery is the base for it. The specification of these phones provide a good frame and the power source provides the life for it. Samsung Galaxy M31 and M21 are some of the best models from the company in this wide price bracket. Our recommendation would be picking a 6 GB RAM model if you are a gamer. Else you can also suffice on 4 GB model of Galaxy M21 but for future safety and more storage 6 GB model is best. For Galaxy M31, it is just a case of storage that you can easily expand using an external card so you can pick the 64 GB to save some cash.
