So this year’s that everyone’s box. The six 128 variant prism crushed blue opening of the box. Here we have the QuickStart and Region logo along with a warranty card.
And then we get it to your case and the same tool. Finally, we get to the A3, one says, peeling off the protective plastic and removing that sticker do. Here you go.
Samsung’s Galaxy 831, the new midrange are back to the box. We have a fifteen watt charger here along with the US, B Dempsey cable and a pair of your phones. A pretty standard affair. Nothing too special here with the unboxing out of the way. Let’s get to the 831.
This he is a mix of glossy, reflective finish to the top and the pattern middle vertical lines to the bottom. It’s not your run of the mill accreting designed.
So I’ve got to give someone props. But they have used this kind of plastic back button on other ECD phones in the past. Not one benefit of this plastic build is that the 831? It’s pretty light despite supporting a 5000 limper battery.
The wait here is just one hundred and eighty five grams in hand. The either one feels good. Thanks to those rounded edges on the back, the power and volume keys both feel nice and clicky. They are located upwards to the right.
The door holds the secondary mike to the left. We have a triple Gartree two and dedicated support for my career as deep to the bottom.
We have a three and half millimeter headphone jack.
The UCB Dempsey pulled the speaker and a microphone to the front. We have the start of the show. A six point four inch foolishly plus amulet panel. This is a gorgeous panel from Samsung, something we’ve come to expect from these series.
The colors are pretty vivid. The display is bright. Nothing to complain about. Up top. We have a U. Shaped launch, and this holds a 20 megapixel TV camera. This album is coming out of this. They seem pretty decent.
Biddeford, it does shoot at eight megapixels. The skin tones, they seem nice. The detail is a little soft. But then again, we can switch to 20 megapixels.
And at that point, the detail. It’s kind of upped. And of course, there’s a portrait more included as well. Coming back to the displaced and someone decided to go with amulet here. They’ve also managed to incorporate and under the display fingerprint scanner.
The last a series forms like the 70s didn’t have very fast fingerprint scanners.
At times, they even lacked inaccuracy. Thankfully, Samsung seems to have updated the hardware here and the fingerprint scanner seems quite a bit faster. That’s not the only upgrade, though.
We also seem to get a nice little performance bump under the hood. Barring the eatery, one is that well, nanometer mediatheque heliopause 65 chipps it. It definitely seems to be an upgrade over the 40 nanometer Xin 079 04 chipset that we had on the 830.
In fact, it seems to match the performance of the 51 and its excellence 96 eleven at least on paper on the GP front. We’ve got a dual core Molly G 52. It should be able to handle most games. We did Trailered Pub G and it was able to handle the game pretty well.
Its mood settings with the ultra frame rate, preset and châteaux disabled.
This isn’t conclusive though, cos I’m gonna have to do more testing and I’ll have a more comprehensive opinion, a more comprehensive result for you in the full review.
As far as storage is concerned, we have two variants here, a six 28 that you’re seeing in the article. And then there’s a base variant that comes with four gigs of RAM, along with 64 gigs of onboard storage.
What, though, are the older and slower E.M.S. 5.1 storage type? We do have room for memory expansion. We the dedicated macros, he got slot that we saw earlier. The battery capacity that’s also been bumped up, 25 percent bump up this tim.
We now get a five thousand million bar battery. So I expect battery life to be better than good. Of course, there’s also an included fifteen watt fast charger for quick top ups.
On the software side of things, we get one you I dewpoint one based on Android 10. Now, since this is an amulet, banally included System-Wide Dark. More on it. It looks great. Always-On, with tons of customization is also an option.
Something is even included etch lighting and etch panels here. This is usually available inflection. Samsung phones with curved edges, but it’s nice to see edge controls come down to the more budget offerings in Samsung’s lineup.
We also have a truncated version of Samsung being here. This means we only get NFC transactions as well as online wallet based payments so we can load our debit or credit cards onto the 831. Now, Samsung has also been touting the alive intelligent features, most of which includes multilingual keyboards, smart gods, as well as smart search and final DNA based crop for the camera.
Speaking of which, let’s dove into the optics. We’ve already seen the selfie shoot up to the back. Though we have four cameras. That’s two more than the 830.
The primary is a 48 megapixel 10. So then I have two window lens and a bright light.
This camera. Just to capture some good looking shots with vibrant colors and good detail. The dynamic range is pretty good. Do like in this case, the 831 is able to read in a lot of detail from the shadows of these trees, for example. It is worth noting, though, there is no dedicated night more to the light performance, it seems to be average at best.
Molly, what are the other three sends us? We get an eight megapixel ultra wide, a five megapixel, that sense of a life, Owego, shots like these.
And lastly, this five megapixel macro. Barring the low light performance, the camera’s only 831. They seem to be par for the course with the additional eight megapixel ultra wide and five megapixel macros being the upgrade to the primary plus depth sensor combo of the 830.
So overall, the 831 content is a reasonable upgrade over the Galaxy 830 launched in India for around 17000 rupees. As of filming this video. I do not have official confirmation on the pricing, but if I were to hazard a guess, I’d say it will come in at the same price as its predecessor.
Somewhere around that, anyway. By the time this article goes live, I’m sure most of you guys would know what the price is. I will also include it in the description and leave append comments. Or if you don’t know and check that out.
So what do you think about the Galaxy 831, do you think, given Sampson’s AC, these are focused more on Off-line?
Do you think this is a good upgrade or would you have liked for Samsung to do something else, something different? Yes, let me know the comments below. And with that, we come to the end of this article.
