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

 

The Galaxy S21 isn't the premium, top-end handset in Samsung's 2021 lineup, but it's still a phenomenal smartphone that does a lot right.

Fantastic, versatile camera Cheaper than the Galaxy S20 Powerful and capable phone

No microSD support Screen isn’t the best No charger in the box

The Galaxy S21 isn’t the star of Samsung’s S series in 2021, like we’ve been used to for most of the past decade, but it’s a solid smartphone choice with an impressive camera, powerful internals and great battery life. If you want the best of the best,...

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

 

Samsung makes a few tweaks to its winning formula

Rich, smooth display ; Solid battery life ; Superb all-round camera

No microSD slot, earbuds or charger ; Sony rival sounds better

The S21 gives here and takes there, but ultimately strengthens the Galaxy reputation

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S21 review

 

You don't have to wait for the Galaxy S21, and you don't have to pay a lot of money for it either. Here's our take on Samsung's latest flagship smartphone.

Affordable for a Samsung flagship New camera software

No microSD card slot Misses some Ultra perks

The Galaxy S21 is Samsung’s MVP for 2021 – its most value-driven phone. It has a large 6.2-inch display, new camera software and the latest chipset specs among Android phones. It does dial down the resolution, replaces the glass back with...

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: A little bit of history repeating

 

Samsung's "regular" phone has a lot to offer.

Distinctive design ; Waterproofing ; Great display ; Smooth and powerful performance ; Decent battery life

No microSD card slot ; Camera performance could be better ; Easily undercut by the S20 FE

There's a lift in design for the Galaxy S21, resulting in a phone that looks fresh and exciting, and a great display, offering adaptive refresh rates. While there's plenty of power - and a flagship performance - the camera doesn't reach the highs that...
