The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G is a combination of the best that the Galaxy S21 series has to offer.
The Samsung S family of phones has always been under the scrutiny of fans and experts, with many considering it to be one of the best phone series in the market. Expectations are always high, and so far Samsung is still delivering on its promises. Last year we were spoiled with three new phones Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra, and this year they continue the story with the new Galaxy S22, which will lead the mobile throne until at least next year.
However, nearly a year passed between the two outcomes, which is a long time for a global manufacturer. What did they prepare during that period? Of course, Samsung didn’t rest and supplemented its rich hardware ecosystem. Among it all, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G stands out, an upgrade from last year’s S20 “Fan Edition” and a mix of flavors for all three Galaxy S21 phones.
What has Samsung prepared for its fans? What inspired their community this time?
What is the common denominator between the Samsung Galaxy S21 series?
At first glance, you’ll notice quite a few distinct stylistic finishes from Samsung. The interface looks almost identical to the other Galaxy S21 phones, with a slim bezel and a central hole for the selfie camera. On the back, you’ll notice the already distinctive “Contour Cut” design for the camera layout. The main difference is in color and in some details. Like its predecessor S20 FE, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is distinguished by more colorful shades – graphite, white and lavender, which, along with the matte effect, radiate simplicity, elegance and simplicity.
Get rid of the contrast in the camera mechanism and wrap it in the same color as the rest of the phone. Samsung has also decided to make a similar design decision for the latest Galaxy S22 smartphones, which means that the Galaxy S21 FE has a similar premium origin to its successors.
Who is the big brother or the older or the newcomer? Despite the age difference, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G overtook the standard version of the Galaxy S21 and stopped at 16.3 cm (6.4 inches). Despite his upbringing, he hasn’t gained much weight. It is slightly heavier than the regular model at 177 grams. However, it is still very thin (7.9 mm). Essentially, it sets all beauty windows apart – large, slim and elegant, making them fit in any pocket and lifestyle.
It also has the same build quality as the other Galaxy S21 phones – more durable Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on the front screen, an aluminum frame and a plastic back with a glass-like texture. All this is complemented by an IP68 rating for protection against drops and dust, and the most daring can dive under water to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to about 30 minutes.
Lightning fast AMOLED display
With a size of 16.3 cm, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G belongs to the larger category, but you will not have any problems with it. Thanks mainly to the curved body, lightweight materials, and non-slip matte finish on the back.
Samsung is known for its latest display technology. He also justified his reputation with the Galaxy S21 FE 5G, as they “squeezed” everything that is technically possible. Let’s start with the 2x Dynamic AMOLED display, which is an upgrade over the standard AMOLED display. The latter reduces the amount of harmful blue light emitted and supports HDR10+ certification to display cinematic colors and contrasts. The 2x AMOLED display improves color gamut, brightness, and performance for HDR. It also has excellent color accuracy in the sRGB and DCI-P3 range, which means you’ll be looking at colors that are closest to the ones you see in real life. With the increase in brightness, they achieved two goals: HDR content has a greater impact and provides better use in bright environments.
An additional advantage of the dynamic AMOLED 2x display is support for high refresh rates of up to 120Hz and touch sampling speeds of up to 240Hz. This means that the Galaxy S21 FE 5G is able to play any video content smoothly, and the response time in mobile games is unparalleled (an added advantage over opponents), while reducing the possibility of screen flickering while browsing.
However, since this is the Galaxy S21 series, you can expect preference features in the hardware as well. It is powered by the second fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which will represent a computing power surplus for 99.99% of users. This will remain untapped for most users, and in some multitasking and mobile gaming scenarios, you’ll get a feel for what Qualcomm’s second fastest processor currently has. The processor works in tandem with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. Of course the Snapdragon 888 also brings support for 5G, which is evident from the name of the phone, and you will also get Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
Despite all that power, it doesn’t run out very quickly, thanks to its 4500mAh battery, 2x economy AMOLED display and fast charging technology, which can charge the battery up to 50% in 30 minutes. You can also charge your phone with a compatible wireless charger (15W), reverse charging is also available, allowing you to share the power of your Galaxy S21 FE 5G with other smart devices (headphones, watch…).
More and more users rely on the mobile phone camera to take professional shots, which means that manufacturers face a tough challenge every year. Samsung has dealt with a 4-camera system:
- 12MP Wide Angle Camera
- 12MP Ultra Wide Camera
- 8 MP telephoto camera
- 32 MP Selfie Camera
There are also many similarities with the Galaxy S21 series in this area. Minor interference can be seen with the telephoto camera that has reduced the size of the sensor and with the selfie camera which has suddenly increased the size of the sensor. Regardless of the slight differences, you can expect high level visuals.
In portrait mode, your design will be the focal point of any image. With a 32MP selfie camera, your captured selfies will look like a work of art, as you will have the opportunity to enjoy every amazing action and detail. In night mode, despite the low light, you will take the best selfies possible with the front camera, and artificial intelligence processing will also help.
Nothing is out of reach for the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G camera. With the 30x zoom feature, you will be able to capture even the most distant subjects. There is also a zoom lock, which reduces vibration with each zoom.
For avid gamers who want to share their turbulent reactions to what is happening in the game with others, double shooting is an option. The latter allows you to switch between the front and back camera and capture the events on and in front of the screen in a single shot.
How can you customize the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G to your liking?
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G is based on the Android 12 operating system in One UI 4 disguise, which allows some modifications to the graphic interface and user experience. With the advanced options, you can redesign your home screen, icons, notifications, wallpapers, and more.
You have quite a few color palettes that completely change the user interface – icons, menus, buttons, even backgrounds. On Samsung keyboard you’ll find new widgets with rich customization options, new smileys (emojis) and GIFs. With the physical buttons on the phone, you can manually change the action they will perform when pressed. With a little browsing, you’ll also come across the Edge pane, which provides quick access to tools and shortcuts for apps and contacts.
In the gallery you will find a new function – eraser or object eraser. Once in the photo editing mode, you can either redraw the subject with the eraser or touch it to highlight it automatically.
The most significant upgrade is the new privacy dashboard. In addition to new notifications that let you know when apps access your phone’s microphones or cameras, it provides an easy and accessible way to manage certain settings, such as permissions, data, tracking settings, and more.
