Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Summary
The most noticeable change in the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G compared to its predecessor is its design. It’s also a lot lighter at 177g. The 6.4-inch AMOLED display is vibrant and has satisfying levels of brightness. It has a 120Hz peak refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for protection. The Galaxy S21 FE 5G gets the same Exynos 2100 SoC as seen in the flagship S21 series. It also comes with Dolby Atmos, an IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, and wireless charging.
It’s a no-nonsense value flagship that does everything you ask of it, and does it well. What I liked most about it was the low weight, which made it very comfortable to carry in my pocket or hand. The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G supports HDR10 playback and apps such as Netflix recognise this ability too. The overall camera experience is similar to that of the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, which is to say, they are very dependable.
If you haven’t already snagged the launch offer and bought the Galaxy S21 FE 5G, I’d say the Galaxy S20 FE 5G offers far better value right now. It’s practically the same as the new model, so you really aren’t losing out on anything. The Galaxy S21 FE 5G will make more sense once its price drops and the Galaxy S20 FE 5G is phased out of the market, but till then, I’d recommend getting the older model instead.
