But, with more and more brands fighting for a slice of the cake, how many compromises can Samsung ask from the customers?
E5V5O, 12 Jan 2021The S21 with plastic back sounds like the S20 FE without the more reasonable priceexactly, hoping your comment would reach all sammy fanboys in the world, haha.
The only reason to upgrade to new s21 is the soc.
Exynos 990 have mongoose core and a76. New exynos 2100 no custom core and 2 generation upgrade of arm core, x1 and a78
The minimum antutu benchmark of exynos 990 is 470k
New exynos have 750k-800k score that huge upgrade man

AnonD-973296, 12 Jan 2021i'm not a fanboy of ANY company, but i am a samsung user. two different thingsif thats the case, you should know better. I think if you have read all the comments, most of the negatives are coming from samsung users, I've used the s8 and will not be coming back anytime soon.(not that its expensive, but there a whole lot of better phones within its price range) cmon, are you the only one,not able to see that its just a refurbished s20 with a diffrent soc ?
I invite everyone to vote with their wallet against such bullshit vanilla and the plus versions !

That happens to every brand. They all start with lower prices & end up like Samsung/Apple.
The good thing is that new brands keep popping up to offer good value products.
For now though, OnePlus's flagships are one of the better ones in the market for sure.

The Sony Xperia 1 II cost around 1200EUR where I live. No matter how good features it brings, it still not worth that price tag. As comparison the One Plus 8 Pro cost in here around 900EUR and it's better than the Xperia 1 II in every category.
When you have better alternatives at lower prices why would anyone go for that extra price tag of Sony phones? Just for the brand name? No thanks. And the talk about quality of components inside Sony phones is no longer valid nowadays. That's just what the fanboys will put forward to explain their higher purchase price. When in reality is just extra price for profit. Nowadays all flagship phones have good quality components inside. The difference is made only by brand name.
Gandalf, 11 Jan 2021We've reached a time where a phone costs more than a car... Weird. Costs more than a car? Where did you get that ideea? I payed for my car more than 45.000 $

They're the only brand offering 4K displays on their flagships. They're one of the few remaining brands offering 3.5mm jack & SD slot on their flagships.
It's unfair to put Sony in the same category as Samsung, especially after the downgraded products Samsung is about to launch this year.

Samsung and Sony are just the Apple of Android world. They are just trying to cut features from their phones each and there, to have better profits. And when they actually give some good features in the phone, they charge extra money, on the basis of their brand name.
No wonder Samsung phones loose the biggest value in the shortest amount of time, from all Android phones.
If you have an S20 you have already a better model than S21. It's not worth the upgrade.
Mike9625, 12 Jan 2021Long story short, the worst Galaxy S line up ever made 🤮Definitely, I didn't buy an iPhone hoping the next Samsung would be great but with these specs is not worth the upgrade
What to expect? In one word.
AnonD-765630, 12 Jan 2021We don't know the Mi 11 Pro details and EU price tag yet....hold your breath.
Love my Mi... moreEU Price tag should be same as China Price Tag.
Don't you know this? EU people don't have to pay import fees.
The Find X2 pro is available for 700€ right now (same as Chinese pricing)
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2021Compare S21+ with, let's say, 5 years old S7 Edge. Lower screen resolution, no 3.5mm jack... moreWell for me most important things are camera, battery life and screen. I dont care about 3.5 jack or memory card. 128gb is plenty. You can always remove extra unused files unless people like to have terabytes of music onboard. You can stream music. If people upgrade phone they can upgrade headphones to bt or get adapter. These are not problems. These are people with different habits and expectations.
