Design and Build:

The Samsung M34 5G follows the design language we’ve expected from Samsung. With a sleek glass back and a metal frame, it exudes a premium feel. The rear panel houses a triple-camera setup arranged vertically in the upper-left corner, with an LED flash beneath.

The fingerprint sensor is conveniently encountered on the back, making it easily accessible for unlocking the device. The placement of buttons with ports is intuitive, contributing to a comfortable user experience.


One of the standout features of the Samsung M34 5G is its display. It supports a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED panel, offering vibrant colors, deep blacks, and excellent contrast. The FHD+ resolution ensures sharp visuals, making it ideal for multimedia consumption and gaming. The display also supports a high refresh rate of 90Hz, resulting in smoother animations and improved responsiveness.

Performance and battery:

The smartphone is powered by the exact Exynos 1280 chipset as its predecessor. The device arrives in two variants – 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage. Samsung should have offered a 256GB variant, and many users are looking for bigger storage. Nevertheless, the company has presented microSD support in the second SIM slot. This Samsung smart mobile offer very good battery life.

You can play famous titles like Battlegrounds Mobile India and Call of Duty Mobile on Galaxy M34 5G. While the device can run games smoothly, we noticed occasional lags during extended gaming sessions.

The smart handset is powered by a massive 6,000mAh battery and offers 25W charging support, but the device does feel slightly heavy in hand. While the device comes with a Type-C to Type-C cable in the box, it doesn’t have a charger.

A full charge offers easily one day of usage for heavy users and two days for normal users. It takes about 100 minutes to charge the device fully.


The Samsung Galaxy M34 5G has a triple camera setup on the back. The Samsung M34 5G camera setup has a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The primary camera captures detailed and well-balanced shots in various lighting conditions.

The ultra-wide lens expands the field of view, allowing for creative photography. The camera performs well in sunlight, capturing good details and accurate colors. The device can focus quickly, and the images have minimal noise. 

The ultra-wide-angle camera also performs well and captures accurate colors with proper details. However, low-light performance could be improved, as images tend to exhibit noise and reduced clarity in dim environments.

The 16MP front-facing camera captures sharp selfies and supports features like portrait mode and beauty enhancements. The rear camera can take pleasing photos in low-light conditions, but the images have some noise.


The smartphone runs on Samsung’s One UI, based on Android 11. One UI is known for its user-friendly interface and various customization options. It enhances the overall user experience, although some users might prefer a closer-to-stock Android experience. Continuous software updates are essential for security and feature enhancements, and Samsung’s track record in this regard has generally been commendable.

Samsung has claimed it will offer the device four years of Android and five years of security updates. In this segment, most devices get only two years of Android updates, so it’s good to see Samsung offering four years of updates.

This device also has its share of pre-installed wanted and unwanted applications and arrives with Facebook, Snapchat, Dailyhunt, Spotify, Netflix, and other pre-installed applications. These applications can be uninstalled if you do not want to use them.

Connectivity and Extras:

Apart from 5G, the Samsung M34 5G supports a range of connectivity choices, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and USB Type-C. The mobile also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, catering to users who prefer wired audio solutions. On the downside, there is no official IP rating for water and dust resistance, a feature commonly found in devices of this caliber.

 Conclusion: Samsung M34 5G review

Ultimately, Samsung M34 5g offers a fascinating package for users pursuing a medium-range 5G smartphone. Its attractive design, impressive display, and decent performance make it a competitive choice in its cost range. While its camera performance and battery life are commendable, there is room for improvement in low-light photography and the inclusion of wireless charging.

Overall, the Samsung M34 5G offers a well-rounded experience that caters to the needs of a wide range of users. The Samsung Galaxy M34 5G is a good smartphone that ticks many boxes for someone looking for a phone under 70,000.

Samsung M34 5G device’s display, large battery, and four years of Android updates make it a pleasing option. At the same time, the smartphone has its share of issues, like the lack of a charger in the box and limited storage options. If you’re fine with 128GB of storage or want to use a microSD card, the Galaxy M34 5G is worth considering.
