Samsung's Galaxy M series was introduced as an online-exclusive lineup to compete with Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi and Realme. The devices introduced as a part of this series have gained a lot of popularity thanks to their aggressive pricing compared to Samsung's other offerings. Thanks to their popularity, these smartphones are now also available offline. Samsung recently added another model to this series, called the Galaxy M21. This new smartphone shares a lot of hardware with some of its predecessors but can it stand out? We put the Galaxy M21 to the test to find out.

Samsung Galaxy M21 Summary

The Samsung Galaxy is yet another smartphone to join the Galaxy M series. It brings some of the key features that the Galaxy M series is known for. The smartphone packs in a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that isn’t very common at this price point. It has a vivid output and very good viewing angles. Samsung has made the Galaxy M21 out of plastic to keep the price of the smartphone in the affordable segment. The highlight of the Galaxy M21 is the massive 6,000mAh battery that helps it deliver great battery life. One downside is that the charging time is longer which could get annoying.

Powering the smartphone is an Exynos 9611 SoC that is capable of delivering decent performance. It is available in 4GB and 6GB RAM variants. It also comes in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. The Galaxy M21 sports a triple camera setup with the highlight being the 48-megapixel primary scanner. The camera clicks good photos during the day but low-light camera performance takes a hit. Video performance is below average. Overall camera performance is below average compared to the other phones at this price.

  • Poor Amazon Delivery
    R Singh (May 24, 2020) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Amazon Mobile Delivery is Pathetic. What takes 2 days to deliver by Flipkart, becomes a week+ from Amazon. Written to Samsung to make sure all mobiles are available on all platforms.

  • The best phone money can buy at this price
    Pranjal Sharma (Jun 4, 2020) on Amazon
    I bought the Raven Black, 4GB-64GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy M21 for my mother. I'm impressed with the phone's overall usability. Since my mother is not a heavy user unlike me, I decided to go for Samsung by considering the brand value and overall specs of the phone. The main requirements for my mom are- Good display for media consumption, good battery life and a clean and easy to use UI without any unnecessary ads. Since the Galaxy M21 ticks all the right boxes I decided to go for this phone. Moreover my mother was using a Samsung Mobile prior to this and hence she was accustomed with the functionality of the UI.-The display of the phone is brilliant and at par with the Amoled display of my Redmi K20 Pro.-The battery life is also very good and it easily gives 1.5 days backup even under heavy usage. The only complain I have is the length of the charging cable which is very short.- The performance is good too for day to day usage. The Exynos 9511 is fairly capable and I haven't seen any stutter or lag in UI. If you are ahardcore gamer than I would recommend to look for alternative since it would not perform as good as its competition in regards to gaming. For casual gamers it will do the job well.-The cameras on this phone are brilliant with very good image processing done by Samsung. It takes pictures with natural colours.- The speaker output is average. Its loud enough but the sound produced is nothing impressive since it lacks bass and that clarity in the sound output.- The audio output via the 3.5mm Jack is very good as it supports Dolby Atmos.- The fingerprint sensor is very fast but the face unlock feature is not that consistent as it sometimes fails to read your face.Hence, overall it is a great value package from Samsung and I would highly recommend this phone to everyone looking for a good phone at this price point unless he/she is a heavy gamer. Thanks for reading.
