The Samsung Galaxy A21s is a smartphone from Samsung’s A series. It was formally announced on May 15, 2020, and on June 2, 2020, it was made available to the general public. This device has plenty of incredible features that I’ll go through with you.
If you’re familiar with Samsung’s A series lineup, you’ll notice that the S series follows after the standard A series, and it’s usually an upgrade of the latter. The Samsung Galaxy A21s, on the other hand, was announced before the A21.
Is it worthwhile to purchase or upgrade to this mid-range phone? I’ll leave it to you to answer when you’ve finished reading this review. But first, let’s look at the features of this device.

Samsung Galaxy A21s Release Date and Price
The Samsung Galaxy A21s costs 655 to 699 DT in Tunisia (about $250). This gadget was unveiled on May 15, 2020, while a less expensive counterpart, the Samsung Galaxy A21, was released on June 26, 2020.
The Samsung A21s is an excellent entry-level phone that has all of the essential features and a decent camera for its price. This phone comes with a nice high-definition LCD, a 5000mAh battery, four cameras, NFC, a fingerprint scanner, and a lot more.
Samsung A21s: Design
The Samsung Galaxy A21s has a 6.5-inch screen, the same size as the Samsung A51, although it feels a touch hefty in hand. At this price, this is a great phone, especially for those who enjoy large-screen phones.
The appearance and features of the phone are not cheap only because it is inexpensive. The Samsung Galaxy A21s has a plastic body. Even though the body is made of plastic, Samsung knows how to design it to appear like glass, which is a benefit because plastic is more durable than glass.
Looking at the gadget from the front, we see an infinity punch hole off-center front camera in the top left corner. The front camera is similar to what we saw with the Galaxy A11. The bezel around the screen is reasonably thin, albeit it is slightly larger at the bottom.
The left-hand sim tray holds two nano sim cards and a micro memory card with a capacity of up to 2TB. A 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, a mic, and loudspeakers are located on the device’s bottom. This device has nothing on top of it. On the right, you’ll find the volume and power buttons.
The Galaxy A21s has a fingerprint scanner and a quad-camera setup on the back of the device.
Samsung A21s: Display
Looking at the screen more closely, it’s a 6.5-inch PLS TFT (Samsung’s version of the LCD) with a 720p resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Although the screen isn’t the best on a smartphone, you can’t complain about the pricing. The view will be a little distorted if you hold the phone off-axis. But, how often do you look at your phone off-axis?
The Samsung Galaxy A21s has a brilliant and crisp display when seen at a regular angle and distance. This device’s display is rather good. The 20:9 aspect ratio allows you to see all of your content comfortably.
Compared to the 1080p display of the Galaxy A31, the Samsung Galaxy A21s resolution is still quite solid and reliable. The great majority of people still prefer 720p.
But keep in mind that the Samsung Galaxy A21 is a massive phone with a large screen that you can get for a reasonable price.
If image quality and detail are important to you, the A31 is the way to go, but keep in mind that you’ll need some more cash to buy it.
Samsung A21s: Camera
The Samsung Galaxy A21s has a quad-camera setup that includes a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The images captured from this smartphone are incredible; they’re detailed, have a good dynamic range, low noise, and color-accurate.
The camera’s only flaw is the lack of a good night mode. Photographs shot at night are not as detailed as those taken during the day.
The Samsung Galaxy A21s has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, moving on to the selfie camera. The images captured with the front cameras are detailed but not quite detailed, and the colors are a little off. The selfie portrait, on the other hand, is quite remarkable.
Samsung A21s: Performance
Samsung’s Exynos 850 CPU, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage power the Samsung Galaxy A21s. Despite being an Octa-core chipset, its performance isn’t particularly spectacular. It is possible to play games on this device, although it is not impossible.
The fingerprint sensor’s response time is a little slow; it takes around a second to respond, but it’s dependable and constant. The phone also has a face unlock feature, which allows you to unlock the device in two ways.
On Geekbench, the Samsung Galaxy A21s scores 184 on single-core tests and 1103 on multicore tests. According to the performance score, it is adequate but not very quick.
The performance score of the Samsung Galaxy A21s on Antutu is 130855. It seems like loading apps is relatively speedy.
Samsung A21s: Software
The Samsung Galaxy A21s is powered by Android 10 and Samsung’s one UI 2.0 interface. The One UI 2.0 for Android looks nice, and the design appears to be simple, adaptable, and well-organized. It has all of Android 10’s latest features, including the Night gesture.
Samsung Galaxy A21s: Battery
This smartphone’s battery is something that many people would appreciate. The Samsung Galaxy A21s is equipped with a 5000mAh battery that provides excellent battery life. After 3 hours of watching movies and 1 hour of playing PUBG, the battery is left with 64% charged.
The phones require 2 hours to charge 84% with the included 15W charger. The charging time is a little long, but the endurance time compensates for it.
