The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is not bad. It was the S20 FE that was too good

The Galaxy S21 FE goes to the market for PLN 3499. There are already opinions & hairsp; – & hairsp; which, moreover, I share & hairsp; – & hairsp; that this is a fairly high amount. The previous generation started from PLN 2899/3399 for the 4G and 5G versions.

In addition, the S21 FE & hairsp; – & hairsp; most likely as a result of the chip crisis – hits the market with a delay of several months, as it was expected in August last year.

The situation is absurd because the basic Galaxy S21 is currently available in a promotion, under which you can get it for PLN 2999 in the official Samsung store. And yet the FE versions have been promoted as more affordable.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is an offer that could not be beat

A few months ago, I was wondering if the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has a chance to be as successful as its predecessor. I then came to the conclusion that it was not.

When creating the S20 FE variant, Samsung made a few compromises with the basic S20:

  • flat screen instead of curved;
  • 1080p resolution instead of 1440p;
  • plastic backs instead of glass ones;
  • 8 Mpix camera with 3x telephoto lens instead of 64 Mpix camera with digital zoom;
  • 6 instead of 8 GB of RAM as standard;
  • no 8K movie recording function.

Thanks to these cuts, it was possible to lower the price by over PLN 1000 compared to the S20, which was a great offer. When the price dropped to around PLN 2,000, the S20 FE became the most frequently recommended smartphone by me last months. It is much better than other smartphones for PLN 1,500-2,000, and at the most a little worse than smartphones for PLN 3,000-4,000. In my opinion, it is the best-priced smartphone in a long time.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

In fact, the Galaxy S20 FE was also appreciated by customers, because Samsung revealed that it had sold 10 million copies. This is an excellent result for a single top-of-the-range model.

In the case of the next generation, the matter got complicated, because the basic Galaxy S21 already has a flat screen, 1080p resolution and plastic backs, so there is not much to cut. Effect? The Galaxy S21 FE is a smartphone in several ways better, in some worse and at the same time more expensive.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is a nice smartphone, but I’d still rather buy the S20 FE

If the S20 FE did not exist, the S21 FE would not be a badly priced smartphone.

After all, the S21 FE is top model from a well-known manufacturer with a 120 Hz AMOLED screen, stereo speakers, a triple camera with a 3x telephoto lens, waterproof, wireless and reverse charging. It’s a solid flagship, where many smartphones for over PLN 4,000 are worse.

The problem is that it is still available on the market The S20 FE which isn’t much worse. It has an older (but still very good) chip, a different look, probably one less update in front of it, and that’s roughly it. Meanwhile, the 5G version can be bought PLN 800 cheaper, and the 4G as much as PLN 1,500 cheaper than the S21 FE.

Galaxy S21 FE for now defends itself with a promotional offer, as part of which Galaxy Buds 2 headphones worth PLN 650 are added to it. If later its price does not drop quickly, I recommend taking an interest in the S20 FE, which is still an excellent, and at the same time much cheaper smartphone.
