The Unprejudiced Guy, 06 Jan 2021Apart from what the specs suggest and the reviewers mention, I'd like to disclose 3 worth... moreWell said bro. Display i think is the only down side of this beautiful phone. I love everything the battery, design etc.
I have this phone and I have no real complaints apart from the screen looking slightly pixelated when displaying certain colours and shapes. But does anybody know if it is water resistant? And to what extent? And does it have a certification for this?
Apart from what the specs suggest and the reviewers mention, I'd like to disclose 3 worthwhile realizations after 3 months of usage:
1. 48MP camera is very good (especially is the sun). Don't move the camera away from the subject until the 'saving' pop-up disappears, and all the details will be masterfully captured. Mild tuning with Lightroom/Snapseed, and you will get pro/wallpaper quality photos.
2. The design is excellent but the display isn't; i.e., from afar it looks premium because of the top-left punch-hole and decently thin bessels etc, but close to your eyes, you can see individual pixels. Texts appear fine but colors appear washed out with no tone adjustment options - thus the slight yellow-green hue you'll have to endure all along.
3. Do not switch on the battery saver, huge battery and 720p screen keeps the phone well-juiced for days anyway. Also battery saver makes phone laggy - seamless transition between all running apps (both light and heavy) is totally fast and fluid when power saver isn't enabled.
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2020been using this phone for 1 month Excellent battery Great performance Recommended What about the front camera?
Slobodan15, 30 Dec 2020Large display is good for viewing but would be better if it was a Super AMOLED panelI agree. An OLED display would be much better, but even if they kept an LCD and made the resolution 1080p on the next model it would be much better.
If you are looking for a branded, well-built, budget smartphone and you want to stick with Samsung, this is a good buy. Yes, you will get better features with more expensive models ( A51 $300/£300 or A71 $400/£400 ) but if you have to stick to a budget, this smartphone is really good value. The huge battery can give you about 2 days of battery life, and it has fast charging, with a fast charger in the box. The storage is plenty and the RAM makes multitasking easy and efficient. The huge display makes viewing content easy. This phone is good for light users. The main camera is average but the other 3 are bad and serve no purpose except to make a quad camera set-up. Overall, this smartphone is good for any light user who is looking for a cheap phone for the next few years.
Hope this helped :)
Oscar dude, 26 Dec 2020Well it actually isn't a midrange phone. It is kinda getting into midrange phone group bu... moreA21s sells for $245 where I am, 6/64 variant. That's lower midrange in my books.
better buy some other phones from xiaomi or realme than this one for the same amount of price you get better value for your money
Just bought a mobile and I am more than happy
Rapid finger scanning
Camera Average in daylight and poor at night (compromise, may be better after software update )
Best calling reception
WiFi signal received at its peak
Battery Average for me but it's good enough
Multitasking performance is good
Overall better option among other

Anonymous, 29 Dec 2020I am facing same problem. Me too. Now how should I fix it?
Happiness James, 26 Dec 2020Really? The display is now good? Why are people still complaining about the phone?Display seriously is not good, PLS TFT panels are one of the worst panels when it comes to color reproduction. If any one wants to buy this phone, physically see the display object the phone before buying.
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2020I am facing same problem from last update.After the last software the phone is misbehaving, and I bought it less than 4 months ago, samsung should fix it
Large display is good for viewing but would be better if it was a Super AMOLED panel
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2020Dont buy this phone, Display and touch is absolute garbage, Screen protector doesnt work becau... moreAbsolute pants because of washed out colour
My 2 older Galaxy phones are much better
Bought for myself, thought it was a bargain at £129..but sorry now..
I thought the larger screen would be better for my eyes..I was thinking of buying a cheap Apple iphone, really should have done this, on a pension it might have been more economical to have a good phone instead.
Worst of money. Most irritating is it's touch problem of top right corner. I am very much disappointing about Samsung by this device. Hope Samsung will fix this problem by OTA if it is software related issue other wise they must belongs to replace such faulty device from customers.
