In the last year (2021), Samsung launched its Galaxy FE series. The company named it Fan Edition where it was said that through this the company wants to make the experience of its flagship series available in a lesser range. At the same time, earlier this year, the company has launched Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, there is a lot of discussion about this phone too. The company says that this is a budget-friendly smartphone that offers flagship-grade features.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Display and Design
The design of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G is largely inspired by the Galaxy S21. On the front of the phone, Samsung has given a flat display where the selfie camera is available on the punch hole cutout. At the same time, there are very thin bezels around the display and in the front, the earpiece speaker is given above the top bezel. It also acts as a secondary speaker. Talking about the back panel, it is glassy, whose camera bump will remind you of the S21 series. Samsung has not given any special treatment. The phone has a triple rear camera setup with LED flash.
The most special thing about the design of this Samsung phone is that it comes with a very comfortable grip design in the hand. The body of the phone is slim and its thickness is just 7.9mm. At the same time, the special thing can be said that the company has given a 3.5mm audio jack in it. In the bottom frame, you will get to see the Type C charging port and speaker along with the audio jack. Along with this, there is also a SIM tray in which you will be able to use dual nano-SIM.
On the right panel of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G, you will find the volume rocker and power button. Along with this, the phone has an in-display fingerprint sensor for biometrics security. The fingerprint sensor of the phone works very fast. Apart from this, there is also the option of Face Unlock which works on Facial Recognition Technology.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G sports a 6.4-inch flat display. However, despite the big screen, it is quite compact. You can easily control it with one hand. At the same time, due to the sleek bezel, it offers you a great flower view experience. This Samsung phone flaunts a Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that delivers colors quite vibrantly. The company has introduced it with a 120Hz refresh rate with a 240Hz touch sampling rate. You will not get any complaints regarding the display on the phone. At the same time, HDR10+ support is also available in it. In such a situation, it can be said that better touch response is available with a good viewing experience. At the same time, for the protection of the screen, the company has given the protection of the latest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. Overall, it’s pretty good and you’ll love the build quality. Yes! If we talk about the shortcomings, then it can be said that if there was a glass design, it would have been saying better. Despite this, it will not seem less.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Performance
The company’s own Exynos 2100 processor has been given in Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G mobile. This processor offers strong performance to the phone with UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 memory. But the price segment in which this phone comes, it competes with a smartphone equipped with a powerful processor like Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 or 888. Along with this, Mali GPU has been given for graphics support in this Samsung phone. Its effect is seen during gaming. Along with this, during many times of use, it seems that this Samsung smartphone struggles in terms of performance on many fronts.
Plays game smoothly in gaming performance. The popular UBG game BGMI runs on the maximum graphics setting in this Samsung phone. At the same time, games like Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends run on high graphics setting on this phone. There are not many complaints of heat on the phone. We did gaming for about half an hour and went from 21 degrees to 30 degrees during that time, which can’t be said much.
Talking about the benchmark numbers, the phone scored 753,639 on the AnTuTu platform. At the same time, the phone has scored 1,084 points in the single-core test and 3,275 points in the multi-core test in the Geekbench 5 platform. It is good in terms of the high-end processors but can not say the best.
In software, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G smartphone runs on OneUI 4.0 based on Android 12. Samsung’s customized user interface makes this phone feature-packed. Samsung says that it will offer major updates to this phone for three years. That is, you will also be able to enjoy Android 15 on this Samsung phone. At the same time, along with Samsung and Google apps, you also get some Microsoft apps for free.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Camera
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G smartphone has a triple rear camera setup with LED flash. There is a 12-megapixel primary camera that comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). At the same time, the company has introduced f / 1.8 aperture. Along with this, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3X optical zoom support and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera has been given. Along with this, a 32-megapixel front camera sensor has been given for selfies and video calling on the phone. Talking about the camera interface of this phone, it is similar to other Samsung phones.
Talking about the camera, the photos taken with the phone in daylight are excellent. These photos have a lot of detail and great colors. The primary camera of this phone does a great job in daylight conditions. It focuses well on the object. Along with this, the autofocus mode of the phone also works wonderfully. Talking about the ultrawide angle camera sensor, it was seen struggling many times. Especially the photos on the side were quite different. The phone has 10X digital zoom support with 3X optical zoom. However, that quality is not retained in the photo during zoom. Some noises are seen. Although it is with every phone. As such, it cannot be called a major drawback. At the same time, 30X hybrid zoom has also been supported in this phone.
The photos click quite naturally and have the power to compete with any phone in its price range. Features like portrait mode and slow-motion of the phone also impress a lot. At the same time, having a pro video will also give you a good feeling.
Talking about low-light conditions, this Samsung phone automatically switches to night mode and the brightness of the image increases significantly. Night photos to we can say right but seeing photos of day condition we were hoping for better. Talking about selfie images, be it daylight or low light conditions, its results are excellent. You can record 4K video at 60fps with both the front and rear cameras of this Samsung phone.
The only thing that can be said about the Final Verdict camera is that the picture or video in daylight condition will not disappoint you. Yes, it would have been better if it had autofocus and a macro camera in ultrawide mode.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Battery
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G is backed by a 4,500mAh battery. This Samsung smartphone easily supports the whole day during daily use. Although the battery life may drop a bit after playing a bit of gaming during the day but on average usage, it takes a full day. On the PC mark, this phone was found on a score of more than 8 hours, which shows average performance, not very good. Talking about the charging speed, we charged it with Samsung’s 25W charger and it gets charged from 0 to 100 percent in about one and a half hours. The good thing that can be said is that it has wireless charging support. The company has provided 15W wireless charging support with 25W wired charging. However, you do not get a charger in the retail box of this Samsung phone. This would be called a major shortcoming.
