Samsung Galaxy S21 Review: Is the New Phone Worth the Upgrade?
Today we’re taking an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S21, one of the newest phones on the market. It’s getting mixed reviews from consumers and techies, so we want to give you the information you need to know about this phone. Is it worth buying? Should you upgrade from your current phone? We’ll help you decide with our Galaxy S21 review.
The main design difference between Samsung’s new phone, and its predecessor, is that it has lost about a quarter of an inch off each side. And though you won’t notice much of a difference when you look at it, in your hand it feels noticeably smaller. The screen resolution has also been changed from 720p to 1080p. Another small but noticeable change is that instead of having two cameras on either side of it (one front facing and one back facing) there is now only one camera on the back with a flash next to it.
The Samsung Galaxy S21’s performance is pretty good. The phone doesn’t lag, freeze or crash unless you try to do something you shouldn’t. It can handle most games without freezing or lagging, making it perfect for gamers who want a better gaming experience than their old smartphone offered. The only real drawback here is that there can be some issues with running several apps at once if they all require significant processing power. However, these are so few and far between that you probably won’t see them unless you intentionally look for problems in your phone. On average, users reported no problems with freezes or lag even when using multiple programs at once for extended periods of time. As long as you don’t push your phone too hard, it should be able to keep up with whatever you need from it.
One of our favorite features of Galaxy phones is that they generally have some of the best cameras available on a smartphone. The newest model, however, doesn’t look like it’ll break that trend. We’re hopeful that Samsung will deliver an amazing camera experience; we haven’t used it enough to come to any conclusions yet, but our early impressions are great. It’s pretty fast at taking pictures, and it seems to do a good job at keeping colors accurate and details sharp. It also comes with several different modes for taking photos in different situations—like food or sports—and has HDR built in for when you need better lighting. There’s even an intelligent selfie mode that uses facial recognition technology to make sure your face looks its best when you take selfies. If you’ve been disappointed by other phone cameras in the past, give Galaxy S21 a try—it could be just what you’ve been waiting for!
The Samsung Galaxy S21 is a sleek upgrade to an already awesome phone, but it doesn’t come cheap. There are other new phones coming out that will give you similar features for less money. If price isn’t an issue, go ahead and get yourself a great new smartphone! Otherwise, hold off and wait until you can afford something better. The good news is that most of your data transfers to your new phone automatically; just make sure you have your contacts in order before handing over your old phone. It’s also important to back up any files or photos on your phone before getting rid of it. You never know when you might need them again. If you don’t want to spend all day transferring files and photos, there are plenty of places that will do it for you—for a fee, of course. Check online reviews or ask friends about their experiences with data transfer services in your area.
