Samsung Galaxy S21 review: Right recipe, wrong ingredients

 

The Galaxy S21 makes a smart bet on value with a lower starting price, but in many ways feels stuck in 2020. A good phone, but not a particularly exciting one.

Slick and colorful hardware ; Excellent display ; Improved fingerprint sensor ; Lower price leads to great value

Plastic back on base S21 ; Not a 2021 flagship camera experience ; Galaxy S21+ value disappointing at $1,000

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: nice for the price

 

More than a refreshed Galaxy S20, but not by much.

Fast processor ; Nice screen ; Good battery life

Samsung bloatware ; Competition will undercut price ; No microSD storage expansion

The Samsung Galaxy S21 drops the price down to $800 while maintaining some key features. There is a fast new processor, but the screen and cameras are not going to amaze.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Review

 

Hand-friendly form factor ; Bright, colorful screen ; Better Night photo mode than previous Samsung phones ; Supports future 5G network features

5G battery life is just on the edge of acceptable ; Future network features don't exist yet

The Samsung Galaxy S21 packs plenty of power into its small stature and sets the stage for better 5G phone performance in the future.

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: A premium phone that's a great value

 

The Samsung Galaxy S21 isn't a huge upgrade over the S20, but it makes smart sacrifices to reach its best price in years

Beautiful design with a fantastic screen ; Great performance and battery life ; Subtle UI improvements make an overall better experience

Some users will miss the microSD card slot ; The camera is basically the same as the S20

When you boil it down, the Galaxy S21 isn’t all that different from the S20. It has the same size screen and the same camera, along with less RAM and a lower resolution. You’re also giving up a microSD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy S21 review

 

We take a deep dive with the Samsung Galaxy S21

Great look; Fast and snappy performance; Full of features to explore; Good camera quality; Speakers are improved over last gen

Plastic back is a no-no at $800; The plethora of features can be overwhelming, take it slow; The UI looks a bit flat and tacky; Bye, bye, microSD card slot

Samsung Galaxy S21 review

 

The Galaxy S21 delivers better cameras, faster performance and a sleeker design for a lower price, but there's some trade-offs.

Excellent dynamic 120Hz display ; Powerful performance ; Refined design ; Powerful camera zoom

No charger or microSD card slot ; Plastic back ; Some camera inconsistencies

The only fly in the ointment, is the Galaxy S20. If you already have an S20 then I don’t think you’ll benefit from an upgrade. I feel Samsung knows this and the S21 is more for people with older Galaxy phones or looking to move to their next phone. If...

Samsung Galaxy S21 Review: Budget cuts

 

Samsung's Galaxy S21 is a great phone in many ways, but some people may not like the budget cuts that keep the price down.

Great display ; Unique, fresh design ; Decent battery life and performance

Unreliable camera software ; One UI needs polish (and less ads) ; A bit pricey for what's on offer

If you're a fan of Samsung devices and upgrading from an older phone, you'll likely enjoy a lot of what the S21 offers

Samsung Galaxy S21 Review: The High-End Android Phone to Buy

 

If you're thinking about buying a high-end Android phone, it's hard to imagine why you'd buy anything other than the Galaxy S21.

More durable, lightweight design, improved image processing, tons of premium features, IP68 water resistance, upgraded in-screen fingerprint sensor, variable 120Hz refresh rate, full 5G connectivity

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: It's a great Honda, not a great Mercedes

 

In our Samsung Galaxy S21 review, we'll tell you about how this phone's value is its biggest strength. It's a great Honda, not a Mercedes.

Fair price ; Great design ; Solid camera system ; Powerful processor

No in-box charger ; Mediocre fast charging ; No expandable storage

Samsung decided to make the Galaxy S21 the phone for the everyday person. Power users will think it's anemic, but the average smartphone buyer will find everything they need at a very reasonable cost. If you're looking for the Android phone that has it...
