Here is everything that you need to know before making any decision. 

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE price in India 

Two RAM and storage variants will be offered by Samsung, with the Galaxy S21FE 5G offering 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB respectively. The smartphone will be available for purchase at an initial price of Rs Rs 49,999 for the basic model and Rs Rs 53,999 for the 256GB option, which includes a Rs 5,000 rebate on HDFC Bank cards when purchased with certain cards.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Design 

There are four colour options for the Galaxy S21 FE, all of which are eye-catching. The basic design is similar to the S21 with the matte back panel and a flush camera bump in the top right corner, unlike the “floating” bulge on Galaxy S20’s FE version. It’s larger than the original Galaxy S21 but not as big as the S21 Ultra.  With an IP68 certification and an optical fingerprint sensor tucked underneath the display, this phone is both water-resistant and dust-proof. Both an SD card port and a conventional headphone connector are conspicuously absent. When compared to the S20 FE, the S21 FE swaps out the second SIM tray for an SD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Display 

Its 6.4-inch screen places it between the 6.1-inch S21 and 6.7-inch S21 Plus, both of which have a display resolution of 1080 x 2400 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen technology, which initially appeared in Samsung’s Galaxy S20 phones, is another commonality. To sum up a lot of technical jargon, this means the screen is brilliant and bright.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Performance 

Although the Snapdragon 888 was the top Android CPU for most of 2021, we wouldn’t be shocked if the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE ends up being the final phone to utilise it. The Galaxy S21 FE’s 888 chipset supports 5G, thus if you have a 5G contract and live in a location that supports it, you may use it to connect to next-generation networks. The processor is combined with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on the model of phone you choose and has up to 256GB of internal storage.

The Galaxy S21 FE is powered by Android 12 with Samsung’s One UI 4 overlay. Among the most notable new features of Android 12 is the option to alter the colour scheme of the menu and iconography, and One UI 4 carries this capability over.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Camera 

Both the 12MP primary camera and the 12MP ultrawide camera are carryovers from the S21. While the S21 boasts a 64MP telephoto camera, the S21 FE only has an 8MP version. Because it uses the same lens as the S21’s and offers a 3x hybrid zoom instead of the 1.1x optical zoom, this camera’s apparent resolution drop won’t matter much to most users. 

The 32MP camera on the front of the phone is an improvement over the 10MP camera on the previous S21 variants, but the resolution isn’t the only determining factor in photo quality.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Battery

With a 4,500mAh battery, Samsung provides power to the Galaxy S21 FE. Fast wired charging is supported, however, there is no charging cable included in the package. In addition, the phone has 15W rapid wireless charging as well as 4.5W reverse wireless charging capabilities.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Verdict

At first glance, the S21 FE is an excellent mid-range phone, with characteristics like a beautiful screen and a strong CPU for people searching for a convenient and less costly mobile. In spite of these shortcomings, the launch price is still way too costly for what you receive, not to mention poor charging speed, choppy software, and mediocre battery life.

Questions

Is the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE worth it?

In its own right, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G is a superb bargain flagship from Samsung. Despite the price increase, it remains one of the few phones in this price category to have luxury features like wireless charging and IP68 waterproofing. The Galaxy S21 FE effectively kills the Galaxy S21, which no longer provides any significant value at its current pricing.
