Samsung started 2021 in style with the surprise early release of its then flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S21 5G phone. Usually released around February/March, the Samsung Galaxy S21 was released on 29 January 2021.
Samsung flagship smartphones are top of the range handsets, and as such you can expect the Galaxy S21 series to come with a price tag that suits. However, the standard S21 is actually pretty affordable, with a price tag of £769 at the time of release. That’s around £100 less than the previous year’s S20.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 range includes the standard S21, a bigger S21 Plus and an even bigger and more powerful S21 Ultra.
The standard S21 is available in phantom violet, phantom pink, phantom grey and phantom white. The S21 Plus comes in phantom grey, phantom black, and phantom violet while the S21 Ultra is available in just phantom black and phantom silver.
The standard S21 is the smallest of the selection with a 6.2-inch screen, while the S21 Plus and S21 Ultra are 6.7-inch and 6.8-inch respectively. The S21 Ultra has a UHD screen compared to FHD screens on the other two, but all three have smooth 120Hz displays.
The S21 camera is one of the phone’s best features. The S21 and S21 Plus have triple camera set ups made of a 12MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide and 64MP telephoto lenses.
The top-level S21 Ultra goes further with a 108MP lens as well as 100x space zoom.
This comes down to personal preference. The iPhone 12 was released the same year as the S21 and is a spectacular smartphone, but if you’re a devout Android user who wouldn't dream of going near an iOS device, the S21 could be the phone for you.
