I picked this phone so I could run both business and personal line on a single unit, as well as multiple line during overseas travel, It works well on the T-Mobile network, and I'm currently using in Africa. This model A315G/DSL works on 4 of 5 LTE Bands with T-Mobile, it does not receive the B71 (600MHz ) long range band. The operating system is indistinguishable during use from my Galaxy S9. The camera, unfortunately, is not as good as Galaxy S9, but still okay.
I dislike that the instructions for this phone & the warranty info sheet are in Spanish! Not everyone can read Spanish! Very disappointed in Samsung. I used to have a samsung phone and had no problems. Why print everything in spanish? Now to find a translator ðŸ˜ ðŸ˜
I researched phones for a while before deciding on the A31. I had a cheap LG phone I got with my METROPCS plan and wanted to go back to a Samsung.
I'm very happy with this phone. First of all, it actually has 6gb of Ram and 128gb of storage space. The battery is very good. I use my phone a lot and it lasts well over a day. The camera is amazing. I only play a couple games but I don't experience any lag with them. For under $250 I couldn't be more happy with it. Would definitely recommend this phone! I posted a couple pictures I took with the camera.
Edit: I didn't have my phone hooked up yet when I wrote this. I took it to METROPCS and she had it working in less than 5 minutes. Works great on the network. The only complaint I could think of is I'm not a huge fan of the fingerprint scanner being on the front. With tempered glass on, it takes it a second longer to register but still love the phone.
I was originally debating between the a31 and a51 but really happy with the a31, better than what I expected and picture quality is just amazing. Someone in my family own an xr, this is way better in all ways.
It looks great
