The latest addition to Samsung’s midrange Galaxy A series, the Samsung Galaxy A21s has plenty to offer smartphone users – including a cutting-edge camera system, reliable battery life and large Infinity-O display – at a remarkably low price point. Whether photography, gaming or scrolling through socials is your priority, this handset won’t disappoint.
Discover the top features of the A21s in more detail below.
1 - Ergonomic Design
The sleek, holographic finish is one of the first things you’ll notice about the Samsung Galaxy A21s, and it’s just as striking in every shade the handset’s available in. Weighing 192g, the body is curved to provide you with a reliable grip, and rounded edges make the handset comfortable to hold.
You’ll find a fingerprint sensor mounted on the rear, meaning you can access your data and apps by simply placing the pad of your finger on the surface. However, this isn’t the only way to unlock the handset – it also comes with facial recognition technology installed, which can be activated with one convenient glance. In the base, there’s a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can open Spotify and listen to your favourite playlists with either wired or Bluetooth headphones.
2 - 6.5-inch Infinity-O Display
Despite its affordable price tag, the Samsung Galaxy A21s boasts a 6.5-inche HD+ Infinity-O display. With a wide 82.8% screen-to-body ratio and 16 million colours, this handset can achieve an immersive, cinematic viewing experience ideal for streaming movies, boxsets or even your own video footage.
Say goodbye to screen glare in bright conditions – the display also features an ambient lighting sensor. This will intelligently detect the amount of light present in any given situation, or at any time of day, and adjust your screen’s settings accordingly, reducing eye-strain in the process.
3 - Quad Lens Camera System
The Samsung Galaxy A21s also has a top-notch camera system, comprised of four separate lenses: a 48MP main lens, 8MP ultra wide lens, 2MP macro lens and a second 2MP depth camera. While the main lens will help you to capture high-res images by day or night, the 8MP lens has a 123-degree field of view, and can shoot panoramic landscapes and group shots with ease.
You’ll be able to zoom in on tiny details for meticulously precise closeups with the macro lens, and using the depth camera, you’ll have complete control over the focus of your photos, allowing you to adjust the depth of field both before and after you’ve taken your images. Plus, with the 13MP front-facing camera, every selfie is sure to be a showstopper – this lens has Live Focus just like the rear camera, so you’ll be crystal clear in every snap.
4 - Samsung One UI 2
Designed for a clear and accessible user experience, Samsung One UI 2 is a custom operating system based on Android 10. Your favourite apps will always be front and centre, so you can get what you need with minimal searching, and notifications take up less space, so they don’t distract from the task at hand.
Dark Mode has also been given an upgrade on Samsung One UI 2, softening the display further to minimise blue light exposure, and save battery to boot. You’ll even be able to customise your colour preferences, changing the shade of your keyboard, message bubbles and more for ultimate visibility.
5 - 5,000 mAh Battery
Samsung recognises the importance of a smartphone you can rely on, and the Galaxy A21s is equipped with a 5,000mAh battery to keep you powered up. According to Samsung, this handset can achieve 21 hours of video playback and 109 hours of audio, so you’ll never be caught short without charge in the middle of a track.
Getting back up to full power is easy – there’ll be no more hanging around waiting for your battery level to increase, as this handset can support up to 15W fast charging.
