The new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

After a long time, we finally have the new Samsung terminal available ; nothing more and nothing less than the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.

The FE line has always been characterized by being cheaper compared to other company products, and this is the reason for its success.

For this occasion, the S21 FE incorporates the characteristic improvements of its previous terminals, but with the difference of having a more reserved size. However, it is still one of the best options that are beginning to emerge in the mobile device market.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Features: Everything you need to know

Without a doubt, the main novelty that we find with the new Samsung Smartphone is the incorporation of 5G technology. However, it is not the only thing that makes it a high-quality mobile device; Here we tell you everything about him.

Traditional design

On this occasion, Samsung is committed to the traditional, with a design that we have already had in mind in other terminals, where simplicity prevails. Despite this, it is still one of the most elegant Smartphones.

And it is that, the main thing is its back, where the main attraction is the camera module with its three sensors arranged vertically.

Additionally, the materials used for its manufacture are completely plastic, also maintaining the aluminum bezels.

But, for the price at which we find this new terminal, it is a much lower quality plastic, according to the range of the device.

On its front, the highlight is the short size of the bezels, becoming imperceptible. However, it is tainted by the fact that it still has the stripe on its underside known as the chin.

The new Samsung terminal complies with the traditional.

The front camera lens is modest, without occupying a large space within the front screen. This time, it's dependent on the back.

In short, what stands out most about the design of the new S21 FE is its weight. Specifically, it weighs 177 grams, being one of the lightest Samsung devices.

In turn, it is accompanied by dimensions of 15.7 centimeters high, and a thickness that does not exceed 8 mm.

On the other hand, they completely remove the headphone jack from the bottom, focusing on encouraging the use of wireless headphones. Another novelty is that the SIM card tray is also located below.

Your screen is still bright

Without a doubt, the highlight of the Galaxy S line of phones is the quality of the screen, specifically in the display of images.

In this case, they present a Dynamic AMOLED screen with a size of 6.4 inches, staying within a medium range compared to other smartphones.

Among its capabilities are its resolution in Full HD + which is accompanied by a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The combination of these factors allows the user to have a totally sharp image, full of brightness and highly fluid movements.

Acceptable sound

As is traditional, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE incorporates two speakers: one on the front, and another located in the lower area. Considering the price, the audio quality leaves something to be desired.

However, for every day or practical purposes such as notifications or to play any content, it meets the requirements.

On the other hand, they leave behind the input of the headphones, so we will have to bet on the new wireless technology in headphones.

Performance: its main feature

Compared to other models in the line, this Smartphone meets the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. The latter is complemented, in its base version, with 6 GB of RAM, which is more than enough to optimize its performance.

Performance is a key factor in this new terminal.

In the end, in the manufacture of mobile devices, all its parts are part of a whole. In other words, the Qualcomm processor and its high RAM allow, accompanied by a refresh rate of 120 Hz, the performance to be the differential point.

We have Android 12 in your software

The One UI software is still preferred by Samsung, but this time with a version that sits on the foundations of Android 12. Both functionally and aesthetically, it is a device that leaves nothing to be desired, since it fulfills what is necessary in terms of customization and color palette.

Also, one of its capabilities is biometric recognition as well as a built-in fingerprint reader below the screen.

A large battery does not mean autonomy

Beyond the fact that the new S21 FE has a powerful 4,500 mAh battery, its duration leaves much to be desired.

Perhaps it's because of the number of features that tend to take up a lot of power like the refresh rate, but it was expected to last longer. In this sense, it was found that in constant activity, it barely achieved 5 hours of use.

Also, the fact of passive consumption is highlighted, which is the moments in which the Smartphone is not used and executes functions in the background.

For charging, it has a capacity of 25 W through its cable, but wirelessly it is reduced to 15 W. In turn, it has the possibility of recharging other devices through reverse charging.

The camera is of quality

One of its features is that its main sensor continues to maintain a 12 MP capacity, in addition to an f/1.8 aperture that is stabilized by OIS.

The sensors are arranged vertically.

The telephoto lens undergoes a modification, since it reaches 8 MP with only f / 2.0 aperture. However, the ultra-wide angle has a quality of 12 MP but with a smaller size compared to other models.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE price and availability

We have the new Samsung terminal available since January 11 at a price that reaches 749 euros. Likewise, it is available in three presentations that vary in their capacity:

  • 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

  • 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

  • 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE vs. S21, which one to buy?

Within the wide range of options that Samsung has for its users, the decision to buy one can be very cumbersome.

And it is that, despite the large amount of information that we have about the new smartphones that are announced, it is not enough. In the end, we must choose the one that best suits our needs, and two of them are the S20 FE and the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G.


The main difference is in its processor, where the S21 clearly has a greater advantage by having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. In this case, its counterpart owns an Exynos 990, which has been shown to be inferior in terms of quality to the Qualcomm.

Memory and storage

Both are devices with powerful RAM that allow better performance in any activity. However, the plus point is for the S20 as it allows for storage expansion via a micro SD slot.

Operating system

Clearly, being a much more recent model, the S21 has an operating system based on Android 11. Therefore, it has greater layers of customization from the One UI.


One of the considerable points is that the S21 has a much lower weight than the S20, with 171 and 190 grams respectively.


Without a doubt, the differential factor is presented by the S21 model, since it incorporates the latest in terms of connectivity: 5G technology.


At the end of the day, the points that differentiate each of the terminals are minimal, but they can mark the gap in relation to their performance. However, as previously mentioned, it will only depend on the needs you have regarding a new smartphone.

What is certain is that, for both phones, or if you at least want a high-end one, the investment must be considerable. Specifically, for the case of both the S20 and the S21, we are talking about prices of more than 700 euros.
