    Samsung did a lot to lower the price of the regular Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus. But it did prioritize one major upgrade: the processor. Is the new chip, the new design, and the new fingerprint sensor enough to make up for the rest of the phone staying basically the same as last year? Dieter Bohn reviews it to find out.

Th only thing drawing me to the s21 is how good the trade in value is right now. I know the price of the phone will go down but I hope the trade in value for older samsung phones doesn't degrade as much

It's interesting, that I've bought the Note 2 during it's release week for 300 Bucks while I'd have to pay around 1500 Bucks for the S21 nowadays :D And yeah I know inflation and "some" more features my comment's just a joke

The Note 9 is $1400 on Samsung's shop. Thats almost double the price it was at release. They know how bad their new phones are.

I've watched so many review videos of this phone and they all seem like duplicates of one another. This is quite disappointing, because I watch different reviewers to get their unique thoughts a views. I recommend that when you're working on a review for a product, don't watch anyone else's review until after you've released yours.

I have the iPhone 12 mini, Pixel 5 and now the S21. Out of the three: 1. S21 2. iPhone 12 mini/Pixel 5 (Tie) Pixel 5 is a super nice phone, but I use the playback speakers alot and the Pixel 5's in ear speaker on top is just terrible. iPhone 12mini has a really nice setup in comparison, but it has a very weak battery life and doesn't get through the day for me. The S21 basically solved all of these problems for me.

As soon as another manufacturer catches up with Samsung, I'm jumping ship. They're getting so extremely greedy and anti-consumer. The baseline S and Note is just to convince you to upgrade to the ultra. At such a high premium, you get a flagship with specs that DONT BEAT a 2 year old phone. Currently holding onto my note 9 because: I still have a headphone jack, 1440p screen, expandable storage, MST chip. I was looking at one of the ultras, but am overwhelmed by the amount of compromise I have to make to buy either, at 1200-1300$. Ridiculous. I hope samsung seriously notices a backlash from this.

Samsung should've just released the S21 under the A series or maybe at least something like "S21 mini" similar to what Apple did. Seriously wanted to get the S21 this year but hate the S21 ultra's size to get a "no-compromises" phone. With a display of lower quality than my S9plus , no MST and no expandable storage the S21 is just not a flagship phone, not buying this "upgrade". Poor decision Samsung!

No micro sd card slot? I pass. How much more will it cost Samsung to include the slot while budget phones include them with no huge cost hikes? It's a great way for consumers to buy the phone with 256gb storage instead of their 128gb model.

This phone is really nice and definitely a big improvement over last year only if you get the s21 Ultra. But there's many cons: no charger in the box, no headphone jack, no expandle memory/Sd card, qhd only available on the Ultra, main 108mp camera only on ultra. What is Samsung thinking ? They are becoming more and more like Apple. The main reason I switched to Samsung from Apple many years ago. Guess I'll be upgrading to another brand once my s10+ gets boring lol

Missing SD card slot,no 3.5 jack,no earphones in Australia they rip you off to buy these,the Ultra 21 starts at 1900aud for 128gb,so buying these accessories will cost you nearly 2,000Aud,if you buy the 256 gb,you will pay 2,000aud,plus the accessories another 200aud,if your not on a plan and buy outright 1,245aud for basis,the plus is 1547aud,the Ultra 21 is 1849aud now all these are 128gb,so add another 100aud for 256gb,its not cheap and on plans well you could at the end of a 2 year plan buy 2 smartphones because if you use a lot and pay extra over your monthly plan you will be dropped off more money,wait for 6 months and the prices will fall.

I really don't know why manufacturers like samsung put tons of money into hardware anymore. They really need to focus on software features and stability. Hardware is pretty much near market saturation levels. My S10+ with the 855 works super fast, even after 2 years.

S22 and S21+ are made to be failure. Their sole purpose are to drive ppl to buy S21Ultra, the same as Note20, or to make the future S21FE look good by comparison.

So... you're saying that 800+ is what you consider the "inexpensive phone"? It might be a third less than the ultra high end, but that alone does not make it inexpensive. It being inexpensive would make it, you know, inexpensive.
