There are so many budget friendly smartphones out there in the market. The majority prefers mid-range phones offered by Xiaomi, Realme etc. that provides good specs in 10-18k. Even a ‘over-priced’ reputated brand like Samsung has launched its most budget friendly Samsung M02 at ₹ 6,700 in India. But its not what Samsung is famous for. And what if they release flagship phone that is worth every penny of yours. Samsung Galaxy S21 5g.
Samsung released their new flagship model Galaxy S21 5G phone which costs ₹69,999 in India market. Obviously 60k, 70k is too much for a smartphone but is it worth it, lets see.
Samsung Galaxy S21 5g – Specs, Features & Display
Its similar models are S21+5G & the powerful S21 Ultra 5G phone. And in all these one thing is similar & that is the processor- Exynos 2100. And if your device has Exynos processor, your budget is bound to go high. Exynos are much powerful than the well known Snapdragon processor, as it handles all the functions like day-to-day activities or the camera performance, or gaming very efficiently. Having such a powerful processor means a good battery life, better quality zoom in photography- the two things buyers care about the most. Besides it comes with One UI 3.1 & Android 11.
The build quality of this phone is good, sleek & have excellent design & feel to it. The rear panel is made of hard plastic and the finishing is very smooth. The rear camera comes with a metal frame to keep the lens protected. The plastic panel in this phones makes it lighter to hold. It has a 6.2-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with 2400×1080 pixel resolution. The refresh rate of the screen goes from 48 to 120Hz which is another positive factor to enhance user experience.
Samsung Galaxy S21 5g Camera
You get three cameras at the back- a 64MP telephoto lens, a 12MP wide & 12MP ultra-wide. So it might be a good preference for rich studs with clicking passion. But then again they can buy a DSLR or Mirrorless. Being Exynos powered phone the snap happens faster as you click. The autofocus works perfectly and the ultra-wide mode is bit wider than Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Samsung cameras always have good reputation at getting better colors consistently. The sharpness & saturation are all in right amount. You can shoot 4K videos at 60 fps. There is a also a feature called Director’s View where you can use multiple cameras simultaneously. I think it is perfect for content creators as you can get different angles and distances while shooting. The portrait mode is also impressive & yield natural skin tones in proper light.
Samsung Galaxy S21 5g Drawbacks
This device doesn’t have a microSD support that can be very disappointing. If due to its high price if you want to go with its lower storage variant then it could be an issue. One thing that content creators might be disappointed about is that it does not support Samsung S Pen, which is available for S21 Ultra . Another weird part & I don’t know why they did it- the sim tray & microphone are next to each other. But what’s an issue with that? The sim tray have a hole in it similar to the microphone hole. So don’t keep on struggling your headphone pin into the sim tray.
