Short description Samsung Galaxy S21 5G

This is a smartphone on Android 11 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (12 MP Wide, 64 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Samsung Galaxy S21 5G has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there), dust and water protection.

Versions: SM-G991B, SM-G991B/DS.

Android version and market relevance

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G was announced by the company Samsung in January 2021 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Samsung Galaxy S. Samsung Galaxy S21 5G works on Android 11, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Samsung Galaxy S21 5G implemented support for working with two SIM cards and support for 5G networks (all 5G-smartphones).

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2021” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Samsung Galaxy S21 5G — this is the price segment page “Flagships smartphones from $500”.

Screen, body and battery

The case Samsung Galaxy S21 5G has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors, protection from dust and water (in the standards allowed by the standard, the smartphone can be influenced by water, submerged, etc.) andbuilt-in stylus, which you can at any time get it and use it with the touch screen.

The screen Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is made using the Dynamic AMOLED 2X technology, has a diagonal 6.2 inches and refresh rate 120 Hz. If the smoothness of the interface is important for you (especially in mobile games), then you need to choose smartphones with screens that have a refresh rate higher than 120 times per second. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 7.9 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 000 mAh. 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

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (12 MP Wide + 64 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide) was received by Samsung Galaxy S21 5G. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 10 MP Wide. Today this is a weak camera. If you are looking for a good camera phone to take pictures of yourself, then be sure to look selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Exynos 2100. Another manufacturer is releasing a version of this model with 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 888. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 8 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 128/256 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy S21 5G: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Samsung Galaxy S21 5G we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive super quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a capacious battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $1030 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
