FHD+ in a resolution that were high end in 2014 not in 2021. When you hold your phone close to your face you can see any quality difference and in some games sure is fast , but lacks in quality. FHD+ 120hz has a miid range smartphone not a premium one.
jake, 22 Sep 2021it features the snapdragon 888 which if you actually done some research, would have found out ... moreYeah you are half right. I understand that samsung trying to made this phone a lot more affordable while keeping just a little high end stuff. But, they kinda forget the fact that this thing only applies in some region. The exynos version doesn't have 5g, and this is well known and Samsung just keep forgetting about it. Not only the exynos version is bad but in some country where taxes rate is bad, it's no longer cheaper. In my country this phone cost 1/3 more than the s21 in the US and we get the exynos chipset. It's worse and even expensive than the last year s20 fe especially in my country. I'm not hating it but at least they should provide even better chipset.

Kelvin3241, 21 Sep 2021Why is the phone so expensive yet it is made from plastic?Plastic keeps the weight down whilst being more durable than glass. It does not cheapen the phone at all.
Kelvin3241, 21 Sep 2021Why is the phone so expensive yet it is made from plastic?it features the snapdragon 888 which if you actually done some research, would have found out that all the phones that feature this processor are expensive. the display by itself is around 220USD, 120 HZ adaptive, the plastic back is not because samsung was being cheap, but because they needed an easier way to have passive cooling for the SD888, if they featured a glass back, the phone would heat up to insane temperatures and thermal throttle.
I personally have this phone and i can say that there is nothing wrong about the plastic back, it doesent feel like plastic at all.
Kelvin3241, 21 Sep 2021Why is the phone so expensive yet it is made from plastic?And just not forget the 1080p screen resolution. From 2014 they did not use that resolution on S-series ( except budget ones). there are 2 types of people who buy high end smartphones : 1 people who whant better features and best on the market and 2 people who whant the new shinny thing and have no ideea what that thing can do,
If the second type are more than the first you can understand why Samsung reduced the costs.
People are complaining about a 15$ charger and don t care about a 300$ display quality compare to a 150$ one.
Is the Samsung S21 definitely dual sim in UK?
Just checking as GSMArena said the realme x50 pro was dual sim in UK and sadly it wasn't.
chooyaochuen, 19 Sep 2021Will there be a S21 FE?Yes it will be announced soon..... next month most probably

I used S10 and S10e who has the same cpu , the same gpu , dynamic amoled , the difference is that s10 has 1440p screen and s10e has 1080p and surely i can see the diference. And i can see it even more if a play a game with good graphics , i play the same game on s10 and s10e and in that game is a bigger quality diference from graphics ( and the GPU are the same in both models)
iwo, 17 Sep 2021I have lg v30 with 1440p and s21 with 1080p display. I promise you I can't tell the diffe... morelg v30 was made in 2017 , S21 5g is made in 2021. And LG V30 doesn t have Super AMOLED or Dynamic Amoled.
I for exemple used s10e and now i use s10 , they both have the same CPU , the same GPU, the same Dynamic AMOLED , but s10 has 1440p and s10e has 1080p screen. Sure when you use it just for scroll and nothing graphic is not a big difference. But i play the same game Marvel Champions and dude the game quality is kinda big difference. I had in my hand S20 , S10 and S21 and i can surely see the downgrade Display of S21. Surely S21 is super fast , but the screen is not best quality and you can t deny it.
I say that as an Samsung Fan , i use Samsung long before android existed , but not even Apple never downgrade screen quality on smartphone for the new one.
People are upset that they did not include a charger that cost 15$ but they don t care about the screen quality that cost 300$.
I have lg v30 with 1440p and s21 with 1080p display. I promise you I can't tell the difference. Quit saying 1080p is bad comparing to 1440p. Clearly, you have no idea what you are talking about. Id prefer 1080p because it saves battery!!! Most of yall on here is so ignorant.
237849234234, 14 Sep 2021LOL. My own Galaxy S21 works fine even face is whole hide.Face mask is garbage, the worst part about 2021 was crapvid-19, they did a terrible job for not bringing the old life back because of it!
As the iPhone 13 pre orders were opened, they might go on sale on September 24th! The only thing that's efficient was that the 120hz display is now available for the pro line this year, which is an improvement over its predecessor, though the ProRes Video recording format isn't likely to be supported until the end of this year!
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2021Beta 4.0 is shambles not material enough.. feedback them it’s crap 3.5 was better.Crapvid-19 is one to report it!
They did a terrible job for not bringing the old life back! Like, seriously, how come 2021 started to become a garbage year!
2021 is a shameless year, which is why 2018 is better than sufficient to some extent!
Not to mention 2020, a trash year after the so called pandemic, started to become garbage!
A lack of fun and interest is a waste of time!

One weekend I forgot to put my S21 on the wireless charger when I got home. So it sat there on the table, unused, from Friday night at 6PM to Monday morning at 9AM. I still had around 40% battery life left. I was surprised when I saw how much battery life was still left.
I use the Pulse app so any text messages I get go to my PCs and tablets. And can also be sent from those devices too. And my cordless phone base connects to my S21 over BT. So any cell phone calls I get, while at home, are accessed from my cordless handsets. So it's very rare that I ever touch my cellphone while I am home.
