Samsung Galaxy M21: Design

As the name suggests, the Samsung Galaxy M21 is the latest M series smartphone in India and this is the successor to the Galaxy M20, which was launched in 2019. Just like it's predecessor, the device has a plastic polycarbonate build and the device is available in multiple color options.

The entire front of the Samsung Galaxy M21 is covered by a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, protected by a 2.5D curved tempered glass. The display has a small Infinity-U notch at the top, which houses the selfie camera.

Samsung Galaxy M21: Hardware Performance

The Samsung Galaxy M21 is powered by the Samsung Exynos 9611 SoC, which is mid-tier custom silicon from Samsung with eight-core CPU and Mali G72MP3 GPU for improved gaming performance.

The smartphone can handle casual gaming without any issue. However, given the drawbacks of the GPU, it cannot handle games like PUBG in extremely high graphics settings, which is a bit disappointing.

Samsung Galaxy M21: Camera Performance

The Samsung Galaxy M21 has a triple camera setup at the back with a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. There is also a 20MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture, which supports Face Unlock.

The main camera unit on the Samsung Galaxy M21 takes good pictures with a lot of detailing and clarity. Similarly, the main camera on the Galaxy M21 can also record 1080p of FHD videos at 30fps and even the selfie camera can also do the same.

Samsung Galaxy M21: Price To Specs Ratio

The Samsung Galaxy M21 retails for Rs. 12,999 in India, for the base variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. Compared to other mid-tier smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy M21 seems to offer higher value for money proposition, especially considering the fact that it comes with an AMOLED display with Widevine L1 certification.

If you are looking for a smartphone around Rs. 13,000, especially from a well-known brand, then the Galaxy M21 might be the device that you should consider, as it offers a good set of features for the asking price.


Samsung Galaxy M21: Important Features/Highlights

The Samsung Galaxy M21 comes with a massive 6,000 mAh battery, easily delivering two-day battery life on a single charge. If you want a smartphone that can last really long (with respect to battery life), then the Samsung Galaxy M21 is the device to consider. Similarly, the Galaxy M21 can also be used as a power bank to charge other devices.

Another important aspect of the Samsung Galaxy M21 is that it comes with Android 10 OS out-of-the-box with custom One UI 2.0 skin on top. It does offer a lot of customization options compared to third-party Android skins.


Samsung Galaxy M21: Verdict

Looking for a new smartphone in the vicinity of Rs. 13,000, then the Samsung Galaxy M21 might be the device for you. It has a big display with AMOLED technology and a massive 6,000 mAh battery. Overall, a good package for those who want a phone to consume a lot of multi-media content.
