Samsung Galaxy S21 review


The Galaxy S21 isn't the premium, top-end handset in Samsung's 2021 lineup, but it's still a phenomenal smartphone that does a lot right.

Fantastic, versatile camera Cheaper than the Galaxy S20 Powerful and capable phone

No microSD support Screen isn’t the best No charger in the box

The Galaxy S21 isn’t the star of Samsung’s S series in 2021, like we’ve been used to for most of the past decade, but it’s a solid smartphone choice with an impressive camera, powerful internals and great battery life. If you want the best of the best,...

Samsung Galaxy S21 review


Samsung makes a few tweaks to its winning formula

Rich, smooth display ; Solid battery life ; Superb all-round camera

No microSD slot, earbuds or charger ; Sony rival sounds better

The S21 gives here and takes there, but ultimately strengthens the Galaxy reputation

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S21 review


You don't have to wait for the Galaxy S21, and you don't have to pay a lot of money for it either. Here's our take on Samsung's latest flagship smartphone.

Affordable for a Samsung flagship New camera software

No microSD card slot Misses some Ultra perks

The Galaxy S21 is Samsung’s MVP for 2021 – its most value-driven phone. It has a large 6.2-inch display, new camera software and the latest chipset specs among Android phones. It does dial down the resolution, replaces the glass back with...

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: A little bit of history repeating


Samsung's "regular" phone has a lot to offer.

Distinctive design ; Waterproofing ; Great display ; Smooth and powerful performance ; Decent battery life

No microSD card slot ; Camera performance could be better ; Easily undercut by the S20 FE

There's a lift in design for the Galaxy S21, resulting in a phone that looks fresh and exciting, and a great display, offering adaptive refresh rates. While there's plenty of power - and a flagship performance - the camera doesn't reach the highs that...

Samsung Galaxy 21 review


Plastic passion is great to handle

It’s as stylish as phones come ; Great cameras ; Pocket-friendly size

Relatively short battery life ; It back is plastic, not glass

The Galaxy S21 is one of the most striking phones money can buy, and the price won’t knock you out. Just don’t expect 2-day battery life.

Samsung Galaxy S21


The Galaxy S21 boasts a new design and the latest and greatest mobile processor out there but has Samsung cut too many corners in the pursuit of a lower asking price?

Samsung Galaxy S21 Review


Samsung's standard-sized flagship phone doesn't deliver the same spectacular specifications as the Ultra, but is it still worth a look?

— it’s powerful, the camera is reliably good, and it’s had a price cut

— the screen and the battery aren’t the best around

The Samsung Galaxy S21 is a good phone that, above all, offers high processing performance and a reliable camera. There have been some compromises made in comparison to other top-notch phones, most notably the plastic materials and the lower screen...

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: 2021 is off to a great start


It's cheaper than last year, but is the Galaxy S21 worth the upgrade?

Intriguing design ; Substantial performance uplift ; Cameras continue to impress

No microSD expansion ; Charger sold separately

Not a huge amount has changed so if you grabbed a Galaxy S20 last year, then you might want to hold onto it for a little while longer. If, however, you’re eager to start 2021 with a brand-new handset, either by replacing an out of date model or making...

Samsung Galaxy S21 5G and S21+ 5G Hands-on, Quick Review: Power-packed - UNBOX PH


Early verdict: Samsung's new flagships vastly improve on last year's offerings, though many brand loyalists may not be happy at the thought of plastic-backed phones costing well over Php 40K being the norm now. If you can get past the “glasstic”...

New design looks great ; Exynos 2100 is a monster ; Fixes many of the issues of last year’s flagships ; 5G capability out of the box

Plastic back for the Galaxy S21 5G ; No charger with the purchase ; Expensive

Samsung Galaxy S21 review: Right recipe, wrong ingredients


The Galaxy S21 makes a smart bet on value with a lower starting price, but in many ways feels stuck in 2020. A good phone, but not a particularly exciting one.

Slick and colorful hardware ; Excellent display ; Improved fingerprint sensor ; Lower price leads to great value

Plastic back on base S21 ; Not a 2021 flagship camera experience ; Galaxy S21+ value disappointing at $1,000
