Sublime battery life
Strong AMOLED display
Single take camera feature.
Poor low-light camera performance and video adjustment.
The Galaxy M31s is currently accessible only in India, this means that for now, its usage is limited. People from other countries will have no access thereto until it is made available for them. It does not support 5G network connectivity like most recent mobile devices from other tech companies and it is quite costly, this can be an honest reason for somebody to have other alternatives. Nonetheless, its advantages over other phones like the battery life and excellent screen display could be a valid point for it to be preferred.
