The Galaxy S21 5G may be the smallest of the 2021 flagship range, however Samsung has made it abundantly clear by the tons of features crammed into the S21 that good things really do come in small packages!
That’s not to say this phone is tiny – after all we know size is relative – so maybe calling this a ‘compact’ phone instead may be more accurate. It does however, come with the smallest screen size of the three S21 models, at 6.2-inches.
The thin bezels & tiny punch hole front selfie camera play a significant role in keeping the display area as large as possible. The flat surface & edges of the front, opposed to the earlier iterations with rounded sides, are protected with Corning Gorilla Glass, while Samsung have gone with a matte back made from ‘Glasstic’, a specially reinforced Polycarbonate material for an overall classy vibe.
This gorgeous looking phone is available in 4 Samsung Phantom stylish shades, with the ‘Contour Cut’ metal island that houses the triple rear camera creating a striking contrast, evident on the Phantom Violet model with the rose gold contour wrapping around from the side.
Is the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S21 5G a good phone?
The team here at ur think yes, the Galaxy S21 5G is an exceptionally good phone! Typically aesthetically pleasing, as you would expect from a Samsung flagship range device, this vanilla version of the S21 models is a smartphone that is as dependable as it is good-looking and the multitude of positive Samsung Galaxy S21 5G reviews out there will confirm our humble opinion.
The Dynamic AMOLED 2X display is beautiful and bright with fantastic colours and high, strong brightness levels. The display boasts a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, which means viewing moving content in videos & while gaming is smoother and clearer than at a lower refresh rate (ie.60Hz). Using this higher rate constantly would usually be a massive drain on the battery however, hence Samsung introducing the ‘adaptive refresh rate’, giving the Galaxy S21 5G the capability to change rates according to what content is being displayed and extending the battery life.
The triple rear camera comes with 3 lenses – the main 12MP wide sensor, the 12MP ultrawide and the 64MP telephoto lens, with 3x Hybrid zoom. Able to shoot 8K video at 24fps and with the ‘Super Steady Video’ capability, this is a dependable and versatile camera setup that will allow you to capture high quality content and images every time.
The 10MP selfie camera on the front allows to you take either Natural or Bright selfies, great for when we’re not feeling our best! With loads of Samsung software features also available, the S21 5G camera is the ultimate combination of quality and fun.
