Samsung's flagship Android smartphone from 2021 is covered by a one-year warranty, is eligible to receive the Android 15-based One UI 7 software update and thereby becomes a potential bargain as a refurbished Galaxy S21 Ultra can now be had for well under $300.

Many Android enthusiasts would probably love to get their hands on one of Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, but since these devices are quite expensive (currently $1,099 on Amazon), they're financially out of reach for many potential buyers.

Alternatively, budget-conscious shoppers should take a look at the much more affordable Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, which is still supported and will receive another major Android software update. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra can now be ordered for just $256 on eBay as a highly rated seller is offering an additional discount on refurbished units in good condition.

The unlocked smartphone is fully functional but might show some scratches and dents. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra also comes in a neutral package and with a generic charging cable, which shouldn't be a deal breaker for Android users who are looking to save as much money as possible.

Needless to say, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is still a quite capable smartphone as it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G processor with 12GB of memory. We thoroughly reviewed the large 6.8-inch Samsung smartphone shortly after its release in 2021 and enjoyed the very bright 120Hz WQHD OLED screen as well as the triple-camera setup.

Most importantly, Samsung promises to provide four major software updates for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which means that the smartphone is slated to receive the One UI 7 (Android 15) update in early 2025. Additionally, new owners will receive another year of security updates, which means that the Galaxy S21 Ultra is perfectly usable until early 2026 at least. Therefore, the former flagship is a potential steal as long as shoppers can live with a few signs of wear.
