The Verge

Author The Verge’s article By choosing the title Just Off The Mark, which can be translated completely away from the target, the reader is left with the task of what follows. has determined Under the title of this article, the reader is advised that instead of S21 FE Bought Pixel 6 Slow! At the beginning of this article, a group of smartphones that have appeared in the market in the past few years are mentioned, which the author considers to be value flagships, and they offer almost all the features of advanced phones at a reasonable price; iPhone SE, Pixel A Series Google and Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is one of the classic examples in this category. Samsung, however, according to the author of the Verge, in the Galaxy S21 FE, has deviated a little from the main goal of this class to make a large valuable flagship.

In the concluding section of this article it is stated: “Galaxy S21 FE has very little to complain about I left it, but [yet] there’s not much to recommend it against alternatives to this model. If you’ve been waiting this long and don’t want to wait another few short weeks to see what the S22 might have to offer, then by all means buy this phone, but if you’re more than a die-hard fan. If you’re more of a casual observer, I don’t think this device is [made] for you.”

Galaxy S21 FE 5G’s strengths and weaknesses, according to The Verge, include:

Large display with high refresh rate
Good telephoto camera
Excellent software support policy


The Verge says about the quality of the main camera of this phone: “The main camera of the S21 FE performs well overall. “Photos are as bright and saturated as we’ve come to expect from Samsung, and Night Mode delivers a remarkable amount of detail as long as your subject isn’t moving.” Of course, the warmer and more saturated colors of this camera are not so much to the author’s liking, and it is further pointed out that the S21 FE offers less detail compared to the Pixel 6, both in standard lighting conditions and at night. In the end, of course, it concludes that: “It [the camera] isn’t the best camera in its class, but it does a good job reliably.” The Verge was more positive about the phone’s telephoto camera, and despite Noting that this camera’s 30x combined zoom ultimately delivers an undesired watery image, the quality of its 3x zoom photos, even in low indoor light, is a much better description. According to Verge, the quality of the portrait images of this camera is quite sharp and acceptable at times.


Tekradar review of the S21 FE is subtitled “late-game presence with some enticing features” and concludes with: “On paper, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE A good mid-range phone with enough features like an attractive display A powerful processor and capable cameras are for those who are looking for a cheaper and convenient mobile phone. However, issues like slow charging speed, slow software and not-so-great battery life aside, the launch price [of the device] is still too high for what you get.”

Weaknesses and strengths of Galaxy S21 FE According to Techradar, 5G includes:

Super display
High power volume processing
long and narrow design
very high price
long charging time
Battery life is not great

Takradar while pointing out the many similarities of the camera set of this phone with S21 and S21 Plus from the possibility of comparing them in many cases He said and adds: We noticed that the photos taken with the phone’s main camera are very colorful, which is quite standard for pictures taken with Samsung.. Still, despite this issue, photos from the main camera (especially photos taken in bright environments) are described as suitable for social networks.

Another point mentioned by Tekradar about the S21 FE cameras is the color coordination between the three cameras, which according to this source achieve similar colors regardless of the zoom level used. Tekradar also mentioned the not so great quality of the autofocus in the main camera, which is not very accurate and fast in some cases, either for close subjects such as flowers or for subjects in the middle distance.



Title Cnet review once again considered the issue of Samsung’s delay in presenting this phone and described the S21 FE as a great $700 phone. It was presented at the wrong time. In its conclusion section, this media again mentions the S21 FE as a decent $700 phone and considers it another sign that the definition of an advanced phone with the presence of features such as 5G, borderless displays and multiple cameras in cheaper devices, is changing This media while comparing S21 FE with Its direct rival, the Pixel 6, from a more attractive design, faster reception. Android updates and special features of Pixel phones are the advantages of Pixel 6 and the presence of a telephoto camera and support for both fifth generation mmWave and sub-6GHz networks are two advantages of S21 FE over the opponent.

This media continues And considering the competition between the S21 FE and the Pixel 6, he says: “If you’re the type of person who’d rather buy last year’s phone at a discount, the Galaxy S21 FE is probably for you. That being said, you should consider which feature is most important to you. Both phones have great cameras, but if it takes a lot of zoomed-in photos, you might be better off with the Galaxy S21 FE. However, if the idea that [smart assistant] Google Assistant screen your calls (automatically answer anonymous calls via Google Assistant) and get the latest Android features right away, Pixel 6 is the choice you need to make.”

The weaknesses and strengths of the Galaxy S21 FE 5G from Cnet’s point of view include:

Reasonable price
Long battery life
Quality camera
Simple design
Possibility to look old in The presence of the Galaxy S22

Cnet says this about the S21 FE camera: “Galaxy S21 FE photos are rich in detail and color, and the camera performs well in different light conditions.. “Samsung phone cameras tend to exaggerate colors, and the S21 FE is no different.” Cnet did not give up the idea of ​​comparing the S21 FE with the Pixel 6 here, and while the photos taken with the Samsung opponent look fresh and colorful, the images of the Google rival are more realistic.

Android Authority

At Galaxy S21 FE has been mentioned and the question has been raised that although the presentation of this phone has been delayed until 2022, is it still worth buying? The article’s conclusion reads: “On the face of it, there’s nothing objectionable about this phone [and] Samsung has managed to get many tentpoles firmly in place.” It’s attractive (perhaps somewhat simple), slim and lightweight. I really appreciate the quality of the material and the solid construction of the device. The display is very good, the battery life is above average and it offers better performance than most phones in this price class. “Samsung has managed to ship the phone with the latest version of Android, and this [model] comes with a respectable commitment to OS updates and security updates.” Android Authority mentions the price as the most important drawback of the S21 FE, especially considering its time in the market.

Weaknesses and strengths of the Galaxy S21 FE 5G from Android Authority’s point of view include:

strength and high build quality
above average screen
Very good battery life
Fast performance
Good software and update commitment
Better performance than competitors in the field of camera
Very high price

Android Authority has commented in the camera section of this review: “The camera is one of the things between Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21 FE is not much improved. “Yes, the lenses may look bigger due to the changed hardware on the back, but the sensors themselves and their basic capabilities have been carried over from one generation to the next.” Photos taken with the phone’s main camera in indoor and outdoor environments with sufficient light have good quality and saturated colors for Samsung. Although the author of the article talks about the reduction of details and so-called softening of the images in some cases, he is generally satisfied with the focus and white balance of the photos and describes the phone’s main camera as a reliable and high-quality sample.

Although the photos taken with the ultrawide camera are naturally softer than the original camera, their exposure and color profile are similar to the original camera. The HDR in these images is not as good as the main camera, and you may encounter overexposed or underexposed spots in the image. According to the author of this article, the amount of softening of the image in the telephoto camera has increased, and while the quality is acceptable at 3x zoom and there is not much noise in the image, the reduction in clarity and softness of the photos are considered its weak points. The quality of the images of this camera is greatly reduced at higher zooms and they provide little details and inaccurate focus.


PhoneArena’s review originally titled “In the Shadow of Giants” It refers to the $700 price of the S21 FE; The price, despite being the same compared to the previous generation, is now much higher than the flagships that this phone is going to compete with, and even the advanced model of the company’s Galaxy S22, which will be introduced soon, will apparently have a price tag of $800. Another point is that the S21 FE with last year’s chipset Snapdragon 888 processor are offered, while the S22 and other high-end phones of 2022 will use the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 cores. By putting these things together, the author of the FonArena article has considered them to be the main reasons for the arguments of people who do not see the Galaxy S21 FE as very logical anymore.

In the conclusion section of this article it is stated as follows: “Samsung The Galaxy S21 FE is finally a phone caught in the whirlwind of changes in the smartphone industry. Samsung is said to have kept the phone behind the scenes for months, debating whether or not to bring it to market, and when it finally unveiled it, it looked like just another phone carefully designed for a certain price range. ” A price close to real flagships, not offering any new and emerging features and the existence of a big competitor named Pixel 6 are among the problems mentioned by PhoneArena for S21 FE. These include:

Fast performance
120 Hz refresh rate
Excellent camera performance
Light weight construction
One of the few dual SIM phones in America
The price is very close to flagship phones
Plastic body disappointing for some users
Not supporting microSD and no headphone jack
Problem of reducing performance due to heat (Thermal) throttling)

Samsung go together: vivid and shiny, and we like most photos with this look. we have Yes, the colors are definitely better than the real thing with increased saturation [levels] but it’s a nice look. The 3X zoom camera provides a solid level of detail…that’s something you can’t get with a phone without a telephoto lens.S21 FE speaks in some special situations where, for example, S20 FE in indoor environments and in the presence The so-called incandescent lights produced an orange color, but the S21 FE creates a more natural color tone by detecting the environment. The color improvement and higher details of the selfie camera are also other points that put the S21 FE in a higher position than the S20 FE from the point of view of the author of this article.
