Overview Samsung Galaxy M21
Android version and market relevance
Samsung Galaxy M21 is a novelty of 2020, which was officially announced in March the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Samsung. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).
In 2020 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 10. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Samsung Galaxy M21 has not received any software updates, which is very sad, so we advise you to look at other DROID-smartphones in our catalog.
And also it is worth mentioning that the manufacturer did not implement support for 5G networks in Samsung Galaxy M21. Therefore, if this is an actual requirement for a smartphone for you today, we advise you to choose any 5G smartphone from this list of models.
Screen, body and battery
In the case Samsung Galaxy M21 thickness 8.9 mm is placed battery for 6 000 mAh and a very large Super AMOLED touchscreen with a diagonal 6.4″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.
Main camera and selfie camera
The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy M21 has one module: 20 MP Wide. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Samsung Galaxy M21 received 8-core processor Exynos 9611. The amount of RAM in it is 4 GB or 6 GB, depending on which option you choose.
But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 64/128 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.
Price for Samsung Galaxy M21: buy or not to buy?
In March 2020 begin sales of a new smartphone Samsung Galaxy M21. The manufacturer said the price of $250 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a huge touch screen, a very cool main camera, a very high quality front camera, a super capacious battery and a cherry on the cake is a powerful processor.
As a result, in 2020 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.
