This is also a big highlight of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. Samsung does not play a number game with the camera of this phone, this phone has 12+12+8 Megapixels triple camera setup. The camera of this phone is very awesome. You can say it’s a flagship-level camera.

12 megapixel is the primary, 12 megapixel is the ultra-side camera and 8 megapixel is a telephoto zoom lens with 3X optical zoom. The color accuracy is pretty good, dynamic range is also good. 12 MP primary camera maintains the skin tones very well.

Ultra-wide lens is also working very well, distortion at the edges is not much. That means it’s great. It can capture very well and non-blurry images in low light also, because the 12 MP primary camera and 8 MP telephoto camera have OIS.

This phone has a good feature named Dual Video Capture mode or you can say vlogger mode. With this feature, you can use both rear and front cameras at the same time. The camera app of this phone is very user friendly, it becomes very simple.

The 32 Megapixel Front camera is also awesome in this phone. It takes natural photos and it also maintains skin tones very well.

You can capture videos in 4k 60 FPS with both rear and front cameras.

4. Best Software, OS, UI:

This is the main highlight of this phone. This is one of the first phones which comes with Android 12 with One UI 4.0. Even we did not get to see One UI in the Samsung Galaxy S21.

There is no bloatware in this UI, and it’s a very clean UI. And you can customize it easily. We can see android 12’s privacy feature, Samsung’s privacy feature, and One UI privacy feature also.

After all these things this UI is very very light and user-friendly. You can change the color of the icons according to the wallpaper color.

A very interesting feature also in One UI is you can save a contact with an avatar or emoji as a profile picture while saving contact on your phone.

5. 5G Band:

As we know that this is a 5G phone, and 5G connectivity is good in this phone. We can see 13 5G bands in this phone and this is awesome. The latency and the 5G compatibility are also very awesome.

And other connectivities are also flagship level. Overall this is a truly 5G phone.

Cons of Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G

1. Plastic Back:

This phone is coming with a plastic back. Just assume you have a 50,000 smartphone and you got a plastic back. Although The frame is metallic and you can see gorilla glass Victus in this smartphone. But still, it has a plastic back.

The glass back would have been good, but yes it has a plastic back.

2. Processor:

This phone comes with Exynos 2100 Processor. Everyone is expecting that we can see Snapdragon 888 with this phone but Samsung gives Exynos 2100. Exynos 2100 is a 1-year-old processor.

This processor can do daily tasks easily, but when it comes to gaming it can not handle much. If you play any multiplayer games like PUBG mobile, COD mobile, and Free-fire then you can see frame drops and little lag. After 25-30 minutes of gameplay, this processor overheated.

3. Charging Support:

This phone comes with a 4500 mAh battery and 25W fast charger, Not even 30 W. also this phone supports 25W charging. This phone is a fan addition, they could provide at least more than 30 W charging support in this phone.

4. No charger:

Seriously, Samsung removes the charger from the box. You can not see any charger out of the box. They should provide the charger for this phone. They remove the charger from the flagship phone Samsung as Apple did.

But at least they should not remove chargers from the upper budget phones.
