The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has been announced and Samsung has used the same approach for this device as with the Galaxy S20 FE: “The smartphone is equipped with functions that have made Galaxy fans happy for years. The S21 FE not only lives up to 100% expectations, it exceeds them in many ways.” Whether that is the case, our review will have to show.

Recognizable design

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is clearly part of the Galaxy S21 series, which also includes the Samsung Galaxy S21, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. We again see the camera island that is seamlessly integrated into the housing. The housing is made of plastic with a metal frame and available in the colors Green, Lavender, White and Graphite. All colors are finished with a matte finish.

On the front of the Galaxy S21 FE is a 6.4-inch fullHD+ AMOLED screen. This screen has a 120 Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 240 Hz, making the phone ideal for gamers. The screen also has a notch for the 32 MP selfie camera and a fingerprint scanner.

Powerful Performance

The Galaxy S21 FE will receive a flagship chipset, according to Samsung, but does not specify whether this is the powerful Exynos 2100 chipset or the equally powerful Snapdragon 888. We think we know that it is the latter variant. The other Galaxy S21 phones run on the Exynos 2100, and the Galaxy S20 FE came with an Exynos chipset for the 4G version and a Snapdragon counterpart for the 5G variant. There is also a 4,500 mAh battery in the phone that should last a day on one charge. Are you without? Then you can charge the battery halfway within half an hour, thanks to 25W fast charging. Please note, the 25W Super Fast Charger is available separately.

Cameras

Samsung has not tinkered much with the cameras, because they almost correspond to the Galaxy S20 FE from last year. There is a 12 MP main camera with dual pixel autofocus, OIS and an f/1.8 aperture. The phone also features a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera f/2.2 and an 8MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom, autofocus, OIS, and an f/2.4 aperture. You can take selfies with the 32 MP camera. Samsung has added some useful functions for the camera, such as Dual Recording. With this function you record what is happening in front of and behind you. You start the recording and the camera shoots images with both cameras at the same time.

Latest software

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE runs on One UI 4, which is based on Android 12. With One UI 4 you have the latest Android version and software shell from Samsung. For example, the software gets a new design in which the colors of the interface, such as the icons and notifications, are adapted to the wallpaper that you have set. Samsung has also redesigned the widgets and added camera improvements. New in Android 12 is the Privacy Dashboard, which can also be found on the S21 FE. Through this Privacy Dashboard you can see at a glance when certain parts of your phone have been used, such as the microphone, the camera or your location. This way you immediately know which apps use this and you can also immediately revoke these permissions via the dashboard.
