Order a Samsung Galaxy S21 and get Galaxy Buds Pro for free
Samsung launched its new S series in January 2021. Since then, I’ve been doing a long-term test with the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. My verdict? 4 out of 5 stars. What I like best is the large display and the range of camera modes. Until 23 May 2021, Samsung is offering you a gift with every Samsung Galaxy S21 purchase.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
The S21 Ultra with 5G connectivity is the high-end model of the S21 series. It’s also the largest, sporting a 6.8-inch edge display. The Ultra’s 108 MP camera is definitely a highlight if you want to snap high-quality pictures. The improved camera offers 200% less image noise, especially in low-light conditions. The dual optical lenses and improved image stabiliser make 100× zoom shooting possible. The «Vlogger View» option allows you to record interactive videos. The latest Exynos with 8 cores and 5 nm architecture delivers more than 200% AI performance compared to the predecessor, the Galaxy S20.
Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G
The Plus model gives you a 6.7-inch flat display with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and a triple camera. The battery capacity is 4,800 mAh and charges to 50% in 30 minutes thanks to the quick charge function. All three Samsung models have an in-display Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner, Dual SIM plus eSIM, and are IP68 certified.
Samsung Galaxy S21 5G
Do you prefer a compact smartphone without compromising on specs? Then the Galaxy S21 5G is the right choice. With its 6.2-inch flat display, it fits nicely into your hand and pants pocket. Apart from size, this year's smallest model differs from the S21+ 5G only in battery size. Its capacity is 4,000 mAh. The processor and camera are identical in both versions.
