When comes to buying a phone, we always try to find the best value for money phone of that season to buy. With the recent phone launches by many brands, which one do you think that is the best for you? And what are the features that you are looking at when considering one?
It definitely will not be running much away from features such as screen size, build material, battery life, camera, and storage. While not many of us could afford the best premium phones with that expensive price tag, a decent phone with great features and an affordable price would be something that most of us would be looking at.
While we are still obsessed with Samsung’s newly launched Galaxy S21 series. This time we are looking at its lowest price phone in this series; the Galaxy S21 5G. With the price tag starting from RM 3,499 (128GB). The new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G was one of the most sought-after phones for the premium category aside from its Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Why many love the Samsung S21 5G?
The Galaxy S21 5G has the same specification as its Galaxy S21 Plus 5G. The Galaxy S21 5G were equipped with a Dynamic AMOLED 2x Infinity-O Display with a 120hz adaptive refresh rate for smoother scrolling and viewing, Eye Comfort Shield that automatically adjusts the blue light based on your environment, content, and time you are viewing it. The front screen was being made with its signature Gorilla Glass Victus screen; the toughest glass on Samsung’s smartphone where it could withstand scratches and damage even more.
It’s equipped with a 12MP f2.2 120 Degree Wide Angle lens, 12MP f1.8 Ultra Wide camera, 64MP f2.0 Telephoto Camera with 30x Zoom, and 10MP f2.2 front selfie camera. It’s also equipped with a Night Mode setting that has improved AI capabilities with its new Exynos 2100 Chipset.
The Galaxy S21 5G also allows video recording on Full HD at 30 and 60 fps), UHD (at 30 and 60 fps), and an improved 8K (at 24 fps). Samsung has also added the 8K Snap feature which allows us to grab clear images on our recorded 8K videos and the Super Steady feature to stabilize our shacky videos.
Screen Size, Built Material, and Battery
The only difference that the Galaxy S21 was its a smaller screed; 6.2″ Flat HD instead of 6.7″ for S21 Plus, a plastic back; but it makes the phone considerably lighter and gripper as well and battery capacity of 4000MaH instead of 4800MaH for S21 Plus.
After a week of trying the Galaxy S21 5G, we found it doesn’t affect any of its feature performance and quality even there was a difference on its exterior. We believe the reduction in their screen size, back built quality, and battery capacity are to reduce its cost which directly being transferred to us as the consumer.
If you do not mind having a lesser premium feel case, smaller screen, and lower battery capacity, the Galaxy S21 5G would be a better value for money phone to buy.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 was priced at RM3,299 with 3 colors for selection; Phantom Violet, Phantom Black, and Phantom Silver. It’s available for purchase on Samsung’s official website at http://www.Samsung.com/my.
