Nick Tagataka, 22 Jan 2021This year Samsung really dropped the ball on their S series and to me only S21 Ultra is worth ... moreI love Xperia 5ii as well. But the price here in my country are $1060, ouch.
Just settled for P40, brand new for just $500. Compact flagship point & shoot camera beast.
Whackcar, 22 Jan 2021So now "151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm" is considered compact? That's about the size of ... moreS7 edge had ugly bezels on top and bottom which were eating up the extra screen real estate.

But for now I just stick with stock Youtube instead of Vanced.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2021It is not about price.
S21 main camera = 44m2 area
P40 main camera = 73mm2 area
P40... moreI know about the technical parts. For me, price comparison & flagship level is much more accurate.
P40 - S21
P40 Pro - S21+
P40 Pro+ - S21 Ultra
In fact, P40 series should compared to S20 series, as it almost 1 year old.
P C M, 22 Jan 2021Does your P40 have official warranty ?Of course.
Guys test the Huawei Mate 40 pro with power mode enabled! The scores are much higher than what u guys have here!

Th... moreCompletely untrue, as someone who always has both flagship because of my work I really prefer the samsung. The build quality is very good on samsungs. Infact drop tests have already proven samsung has better build quality.. despite your issue with plastic?(what are phone cases made of?)
Shui8, 22 Jan 2021I've got GMS using DualSpace, with full Youtube (took 2 minutes only). Drive, Gmail all c... moreI don't use Drive, neither Maps. I use Maps on desktop as for satellite imagery and street views etc. But map itself is unusable. It used to be good, but it's bad now and poorly maintained. Yandex Maps and 2GIS are far better here. I also use Yandex Disk.
Gmail will work with any email client. And there are a lot of them on Android. Including stock email client, Outlook, open source powerful K-9 etc etc etc.
There is a good open source Youtube client - NewPipe. But you can only read comments. There is no yet social functionality. You can only export subscription list thought a file.
There is YouTube Vanced version that doesn't require GMS, but didn't try it.
Lorelie, 22 Jan 2021Is the charger and ear buds included if I'm gonna buy it?
Or is it sold separately?The charger not, the buds only in the initial promotion/pre-orders depending of your country or if you purchase it online. S20 series are a better deal anyways if you don't consider other brand with better value/money actually and better products.
But they removed S20 series from their online shop. Maybe they'll return at some point but people are angry because a lot of them prefer the previous models and now can't purchase them from Samsung. So you must to buy a downgraded phone wihout accesories, worse cameras, no expandable memory... lol I ask myself if they did on purpose watching the reaction of people rejecting the new S21 series and bad initial feeling with them.

Whether you like the phone or not, GSM Arena does the best reviews.
I am interested because of the dimensions and weight! But noticed I am from Switzerland I will get the Exynos chipset,...batterylife is really important, S20 FE is pretty decent but too big so should I switch to Galaxy S21? Cheers
Anyone notice how blurry some parts of the snail picture is? I am talking about the grass and bushes on the right half of the pic, taken by the wide camera

I would love to know how GSMA justify giving the S21 a higher score than the iPhone 12 Pro. They both lack chargers/earphones but the iPhone is made from the most premium materials, as opposed to S21's cheap plastic build. It has a superior chipset, camera and user experience. They have similar battery life. The only thing it lacks is high refresh-rate.
pavichokche, 22 Jan 2021Is this review and tests for the Exynos or Snapdragon model?Exynos. If you scroll down in part 4, you'll see a small paragraph that states they use Exynos since they're in Bulgaria and don't get the Snapdragon version.
johnh3, 22 Jan 2021From a european perspective I would not buy the old S20. It had a crappy Exynos processor. And... moreYes, but the S20 FE 5g comes with Snapdragon 865 in all markets...and with a larger battery, larger screen, SD Card slot but otherwise similar specs...with much better deals available... Personally I think it's the better phone but I'm just not sure I want the larger size.
They have reviewed Xiaomi phones. MI10 for example.
