A processor finally up to the task
Samsung is now used to offering smartphones equipped with SoC Exynos in Europe, produced directly by the Korean firm. But now, for several years now, these Exynos chips were much less efficient than those from Qualcomm which equip the American versions of Samsung phones. In 2021, things are changing and the European Samsung Galaxy S21s are finally equipped with processors worthy of the competition.
Thus, the all new Exynos 2100 offers excellent performance, in particular thanks to an engraving fineness of 5 nm. It is backed by 8 GB of RAM and can therefore run all the applications of the moment. Switching from one application to another is extremely smooth, and allows you to resume your activity without having to fully reload it. This year too, this processor natively offers 5G compatibility, regardless of the version. This was not the case with the Galaxy S20.
A very good autonomy
Samsung has finally succeeded in making its flagship enduring. The Samsung Galaxy S21 is able to last a whole day with intensive use. Its 4000 mAh battery allows you to get between 7 and 8 hours of screen on with normal use. It’s a very good score.
To achieve this result, Samsung relies on two novelties. On the one hand, the new Exynos 2100 processor benefits from better energy efficiency. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S21 benefits from a refresh rate of 120 Hz which automatically adapts to the displayed content. For example, this means that the screen will not go above 60 Hz if the video being viewed is only available at 60 frames per second.
An original and successful design
Flagship requires, Samsung has really taken care of the design of its Galaxy S21. The originality lies in the photo sensors with a photo block wrapping the upper left corner. An aesthetic attention which gives character to this phone. At the front, there is a 6.2-inch AMOLED screen – excellent by the way – with fine bezels and a discreet central punch. Finally, the edges of the screen are flat and that should delight more than one.
For its Samsung Galaxy S21, the company chose to use plastic to cover the back of the device. The matt effect that is brought to it is the most beautiful effect, especially since it hangs less fingerprints. The choice of plastic has two advantages. On the one hand, the phone is lighter: it weighs only 169 grams. On the other hand, the properties of plastic allow it to better resist shocks. This makes the back of the phone less likely to crack after a drop, unlike glass devices.
Photo quality at the rendezvous
These are three photo sensors that can be found on the back of the Samsung Galaxy S21, in the following configuration:
- 12 megapixel main sensor
- 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle
- 64-megapixel x3 hybrid zoom
On a daily basis, the Samsung Galaxy S21 shows great versatility. The pictures benefit from a good sharpness and a beautiful colorimetry. Overall, there is also good colorimetric consistency between the different sensors.
On the software side, the Samsung Galaxy S21 photo application is full of features that allow you to go a little further than just taking pictures. It has among other things a night mode, a tool to create GIFs or the new director mode. The latter, when capturing a video, allows you to preview the rendering of the two sensors that are not used. Thanks to this, you can switch from one lens to another knowing in advance what the shot will look like, and without interrupting the recording.
