Galaxy S21 vs Galaxy S21 Plus 5G Comparison

Samsung S21 vs S21 Plus

Every year, the South Korean giant Samsung unveils a new fleet of products. In 2021, the two smartphones Samsung S21 and Samsung S21 Plus were presented for the first time, meeting the needs of many users. Find out which one suits you best.

Samsung S21, the compact size

While their design is identical, it's easy to tell them apart by their size. The S21 is the smallest with a 6.2-inch screen, compared to the 6.7-inch screen of the S21 Plus. The S21's compact size allows it to fit easily into a pocket and be handled with one hand - this is a little bit more difficult with the S21 Plus. It is also lighter, weighing only 169 grams (200 grams for the S21 Plus). The screen technology remains the same on both devices, with Full HD+ AMOLED panels (1080 × 2400 px). This allows the S21 to stand out from the crowd, offering a better screen quality thanks to its smaller size.

Samsung S21 Plus, the XL version

The larger Samsung S21 Plus also marks its difference by the presence of a glass back, which portrays more quality than the plastic used on the S21. It remains identical to the S21 in terms of performance, with the same processor and 5G compatibility. Differences appear in terms of battery life - the S21 has a 4,000 mAh battery, while the S21 Plus has a 4,800 mAh battery. When it comes to photography, it's impossible to tell the two devices apart. Their qualities are identical, as are their 12 Mpx cameras, their 12 Mpx ultra wide angle and their 64 Mpx zoom.

Are you looking for a compact, versatile smartphone that is very comfortable to use with one hand? The Samsung S21 meets all your criteria. It also offers good value for money. However, it is still a little less efficient than its competitor in terms of battery life. If this is important to you and/or if you like larger screens, you should consider the S21 Plus.
