Samsung Galaxy S21 5G – user opinions and reviews

On S20 you can choose if you want refresh rate or display quality , on s21 you can only use high refresh rate with weak display . What is the point of having all that high end specs when you can only watch things in 1080p ? Then why not 720p or VGA ? If display quality doesn’t matter for you .
And S21 is more expensive than S20 at this time when s20 has better features with the exception of cpu . In my country S21 has the same price as S20 5g with 12gb ram.

Nah. S20 is just first version its not even are better.. S21 is better and also fixes lot problems what was S20 etc. S22 will be new total not same phone its have planed that its comes also even 200 megapixel camera.

How about no memory extension for S21…and S20 feels so much more premium in hand. S20 is flagship, S21 is mid range. Hopefully S22 will be better in every aspect, because the Chinese are now selling better phones for half the price.

Really?? The S21 has a Faster SoC, faster picture processing, faster storage, faster memory, integrated 5G modem, lower power use, etc. The list is very long. The only thing that an S20 would be better for my use would be the screen resolution. But then I would have run it in 120hz mode. So then the resolution would be 1080P anyway. Just like the S21. Everything else is better in the S21 for what I use. But then the S21 was also much cheaper for me than the S20 would have cost me. It was a win/win for me.

My 256GB, unlocked, S21 for $300 was easily more than worth the price I paid out of pocket. I have been very pleased with it. Especially the camera. It does a much better job than my S10 ever did with pictures and videos.
