The Galaxy S21 is the smallest and cheapest of Samsung’s latest trio of flagships and it offers an intriguing mix of features for the price. You’ll get the same top-tier processor as its two bigger stablemates and the same 120Hz refresh rate, but a lower resolution. It has one fewer camera than the S21 Ultra with less-sharp sensors, but otherwise still offers a versatile imaging system. Plus, it has a brand new look, a long-lasting battery and most of Samsung’s useful software. For the money, you’ll have a hard time finding a better Android flagship.
