The all-new Samsung Galaxy S21 is officially available! Released within the past couple of weeks, this phone is approximately $200 less than its S20 predecessor. While there is a lot in terms of the upgrades (further detail later) there is also a lot that has appeared to be taken away from the overall system design. This article will seek to provide a detailed and accurate review of the Samsung Galaxy S21 including, but not limited to the specs, performance, and design. Additionally. the pros and cons will also be provided. Without further ado, let’s begin.
There’s a lot to be desired in terms of the overall specs of the Samsung Galaxy S21. For starters, this phone sports a 6.2-inch screen size along with the Android 11 OS. Furthermore, the performance abilities are enhanced thanks to Snapdragon 888 processor. The S21 also features two internal storage options of 128 and 256 GB as there is no option for available external storage. There is 8GB Ram on board. The battery is a standard 4,0000mAh battery that lasts for a little under 10 hours. The phone comes with a charging cord but no wall charger. Other specs include a 10MP front camera and multiple color options.
When it comes to the overall design of the Samsung Galaxy S21 the initial look is similar to that of its predecessor, the S20. As previously mentioned, the display is a 6.2″ that is no longer curved and now features a flat edge look. The design of the S21 is made with a back plastic cover and measures 6 x 2.8 x 0.31 inches. Other designs and display features worth mentioning here include the three cameras located on the back of the phone as well as the ultrasonic fingerprint reader on the front middle part of the phone’s display.
In a nutshell, the performance of the S21 is far better improved than older phones as well as the same generation phones that come nowhere close to the performance levels even though this phone’s performance is slightly above the average quo. this phone features the latest Snapdragon 888 chip as well as a boost to the AI performance giving a better CPU performance as well as speeds that have increased to a little over 30%. Overall, this phone is a good option for all things performance as it is great for smooth gameplay as well as media playback.
The software and UI featured on the S21 can be described as elegantly designed and easily navigatable. The overall look is elegant and features such as the quick panel and app drawer are customizable. While the apps in the app drawer seem to be arranged randomly and appear to have no options to rearrange them according to preference. Furthermore, the UI is built to be more compatible with Samsung services instead of opting for the Google services that many Android phones prefer. Finally, one good thing about this particular version of the UI3 is that it is easy to connect to an external monitor.
Ultimately, there are many pros and cons to the Samsung Galaxy S21. True, this can be deemed as objective as everyone’s preferences are different. That said, given the overall features provided for the S21 some of the good things worth mentioning include the elegant and dynamic 120Hz display that features a flat edge design. Additionally, this phone features powerful performance that features smooth gameplay and media playback due to the Snapdragon 888 chip. One particular camera feature that is advantageous is found in the powerful zoom despite the camera’s inability to stay consistent with traditional camera settings and features. Two cons to getting this phone are the need to purchase a separate wall charger and the plastic back.
In conclusion, the overall verdict for the Samsung Galaxy S21 is positive despite its inconsistent camera features as well as a cosmetic flaw found in a plastic back cover. ultimately, this is the perfect phone for anybody who is looking for a performance-driven device. The 6.2-inch display makes gaming and media content come to life while the phone’s design provides a nice backdrop UI that makes navigation fairly easy. the camera, as a whole, is even pretty good in terms of the picture results.
