Announced during the South Korean manufacturer Galaxy Unpacked conference, the latest Galaxy S models are called S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra. These three versions, which are equipped with the Exynos 2100 processor, are all 5G compatible, and each has its own characteristics. Other than their differences, which of these Samsung smartphones is right for you? Let’s try to see more clearly.
Galaxy S21: Size Issue
With diagonals of 6.7 and 6.8 inches each, the S21 + and S21 Ultra are thus true phablets, over 16 cm high. Thus these smartphones allow better immersion and consumer readability of videos or online games. Galaxy S21 + and S21 Ultra It is also a good alternative for those who mainly use their phones to surf the Internet.
With the advent of smartphones, phones have become much larger, and as a result it is no longer easy to fit in a pocket … which is why many users prefer to use a more compact model. Therefore it is recommended for S21 with a diameter of 6.2 inches.
Galaxy S21, similar design with nuances
All from the same range, the different versions of the Galaxy S21 logically present the same design, with impeccable finishes and a matte back of the most beautiful effects. With some exceptions! More than ever in this classic 2021 model year, the Korean manufacturer is betting on the colors. Hence, certain colors are found in certain models, but not in others. We therefore encourage you to choose one version of the S21 over another …
The S21 Ultra is available in Black, Purple, and 3 other Samsung Store Exclusive Colors: Phantom Titanium, Phantom Navy and Phantom Brown. The S21 is available in purple, gray, white, and pink colors. Finally, the S21 + also has two exclusive colors – Phantom Gold and Phantom Red – as well as purple, black and silver. Depending on the color you choose, the finishes and borders may have a different color, such as the purple pattern with rose gold photo block. Massad !
Galaxy S21 Ultra, best camera in the bunch?
Samsung’s Galaxy S21 lineup has always focused on the image. And this classic 2021 model is no exception. The S21 and S21 + have 3 image sensors, including the 64MP main sensor, for capturing high-resolution photos and 8K videos. With the Space Zoom function, it is also possible to zoom in up to 30 times and lock the scene to avoid blurring.
Then there is the S21 Ultra. The latter is equipped with a quad image unit, including x3 and x3 optical zoom, for ultra-sharp, detailed shots, without losing quality. As for the main sensor, it is up to 108 mega pixels! The Space Zoom feature also allows Ultra to zoom in up to 100 times. Thanks to Nona-binning technology, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra also excels in low-light conditions, for clear and noise-free photos, day or night.
Is the pen compatible with S21?
The S Pen, popular with Samsung’s Note range, is the popular pen of the Korean brand. The latter allows you to easily take notes on your smartphone, but also to make diagrams, sketch ideas or simply scroll through its navigation pages. While we thought we’d never see it on a model other than Note, the S Pen is now appearing on the S-range for the first time.
However, it does not work on all models. S21 Ultra It is actually the only range compatible with the S Pen, and it is available as an option. And for good reason, the S21 and S21 + don’t offer a screen that supports a Samsung stylus. If you are used to taking notes, manipulating spreadsheets or signing documents, then the choice of Ultra would be ideal!
Galaxy S21, S21 + et S21 Ultra: the perfect budget?
Samsung’s latest flagship phones are positioned as high-end smartphones. The range starts at € 859 with the S21, then € 1,059 with the S21 + and finally € 1,259 for the S21 Ultra. The latter regularly takes advantage of the offerings, especially on the brand’s online store side …
