    Sales Rep was outstanding and she really knew everything I needed to know about the new Galaxy S21 5G Phone. She allowed a discount for my Galaxy S20 Phone that I was able to turn in. The Galaxy S21 5G is a far superior phone to the Galaxy S20. Samsung made a lot of improvements for the S21 and having 5G makes a big difference. Also battery life is longer than the S20 and much faster for charging.

    I am so insanely furious about this phone. I got one on February 9th, an open box to be exact. By the 21st the lower speaker stopped working, and more concerning, the SIM card continued to eject while still firmly in the phone which reminds in the case. They replaced it under the 14 day exchange policy on February 22. Now today, the 24th...SIM card is ejecting again...This makes me want to go to Apple...This is a flagship phone from one of the largest cellphone manufacturers in the world, and it is complete garbage...Best Buy will be seeing me today or tomorrow to cough up another phone...

    Photo quality

    definitely a great phone with a great battery! the 30x zoom is nice for shots of the moon or maybe some star shots although i personally don't do that. the whole UI is normal and easy to use as to be expected and the build quality of the device is great. it's definitely worth it if you need to upgrade and the 120hz is definitely pleasing to my eyes.

    Pros mentioned:

    Cons mentioned:
    Charging, Screen quality

    I'm really enjoying this upgrade from an S9 to the S21. I prefer the flat screen of the S21 over the curved screen of the S9. The screen is still beautiful, and the VRR 120Hz looks much smoother than the 60Hz of the S9. I also like the buttons only on 1 side of the phone. Transferring Apps and Data was quick and easy via the included cable. No real learning curve for the new phone. Does have the option to move to gestures if you choose that route. 128 GB works well for me. Fast & Responsive Cameras are a real upgrade both the back and selfie. Cons: No wall charger. Additional cost getting a fast charger. No SD card slot. The increased base storage works for me, but it would have been nice to have it. Screen seems a little less bright, but only a marginal difference. Finger print scanner is less reliable and takes a little longer than the S9. It works well enough, even with a thick screen protector.

    The s21 is a great phone. I recommend buying it if you dont have at least the Galaxy S20. If you do have an S20 that works great then I don't recommend upgrading unless you are upgrading to the Ultra series as the regular S20 and S21 are near identical in overall specs. Look it up and you'll for yourself.

    Excellent phone for the price that this year they reduced.I don't see any compromise on the quality.Excellent camera Very smooth touch functionality.Very fast in closing ,opening or working on the apps. Only downside is Sammy puts default apps which i cannot control thats very bad.they want all permissions on my phone for those apps which user cannot control.

    So much easier to handle than the S9 I used to have. The ease of switching my Mint Mobile sim from the S9 to the S21 was easy, just had to make sure all the correct settings were input correctly for the sim to work. It didn't take long. Samsung Switch app was easily used to transfer all my things I wanted. I don't normally shell out just under $900 for a new phone, but I needed to for different reasons. I'm so happy I did.

    Charging

    I ordered a brand new white S21 yesterday on Bestbuy and chose to curbside pickup at Bestbuy store located at 1717 Harrison St,SF. When I received the box in my car, I found the box looks dusty and has tape marks on top of the box, I thought it’s just because of the box been moved around so I opened the S21 box. After opening it I found a broken QR code on the side of the box(it’s covered and hidden when handed to me), there is also a lot of dust on the back of this phone which should not happen, also the packaging of the instruction and charging cable is a bit worn. I immediately realized it’s a USED phone and went to store for changing! The mobile department manager doesn’t believe it’s a used S21 at the beginning but did a search in Bestbuy system and found this phone was indeed SOLD a couple days ago and got RETURNED, then someone restocked it as a BRAND NEW and sent to me. It’s a shame. My order was refunded in the end as they have no brand new white S21 in stock. I placed another order to deliver to my home today, hope it’s a brand new one this time... I really like the look of S21 btw.

    The build quality is solid even though the plastic does take away from the premium feel of a flagship. I had to return this device because after years of using stock Android I found the Samsung UI to be a little odd. One week without my Pixel 5 and using the Galaxy S21 5G instead felt like a week at an awkward relatives house. The camera seemed as good as the Pixel camera and the color selection is amazing. Just keep in mind that the Samsung UI takes some getting used to if you are coming over from a Pixel, Motorola, Nokia or other stock or near stock Android device.

    This is my third Samsung phone. I am very happy with it and would definitely recommend buying an unlocked phone as it gives you the option of switching carriers if you live in an area where cell coverage is spotty.

    I've only had my new phone for a few weeks but I have to admit, other than getting use to a new phone it was a good buy! I needed one as my Galaxy S7 was getting a little tired. I would definately recommend the up grade. I'm not one to have the newest phones at all times but I love the Galaxy series of phones and at least for a hot minute I do. I love my new phone.

    I adore this phone. I have had an iPhone for many many years. I tried to switch to a Samsung twice before, going to the Galaxy S 9, and then the Galaxy A50. The S 9, I didn't really give too much of a chance if I'm being honest. But the A50, I did not care for. However, this phone, I love so much! It is so easy to use and I just love the features it has.

    Bought this phone for my wife to replace her note 8. She is so happy to have a purple phone but one that is also faster, lighter, and doesn't have a game burnt into her screen. I recommend this phone not just because its purple but because it was in expensive compared to upgrading through Verizon.

    I purchased this as a last minute gift for my mom who's in her early 50's and she absolutely loves it! This phone is perfect for someone that doesn't need all of the bells and whistles that the S21 Ultra offers (I actually got myself that one, 512GB edition). The phone runs very smooth and offers the latest Samsung One 3.1 and Android 11. My mom is a happy camper :).
