Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy S21+

89.4% Samsung Galaxy S21+ smartphone review: The Galaxy S21 in large | Notebookcheck
Samsung's Galaxy S21+ flagship smartphone offers all the equipment characteristics that also distinguish the excellent Galaxy S21. But the plus sign in the product label also means that you can expect even more here. And indeed, the Galaxy S21+ delivers: for an additional 200 Euros (~$242), you get a significantly larger display and a noticeably larger battery, among other things.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus has everything most people will need. The stunning design, powerful performance, and excellent camera system make this a great smartphone. If you can't quite convince yourself to spend big on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, you should definitely consider the Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus.

80% Samsung Galaxy S21+ Review: Great Daily Driver But Not Easy To Recommend
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Samsung S21+ finds itself in a tricky position, and that makes it a difficult product to recommend. Having used the device for close to two weeks, I couldn’t come up with a single critical standout feature that would make recommending the S21+ easy. While Samsung itself offers a lot of competition at that price point with its older-gen devices, there are new-generation launches from rivals that are yet to arrive. Unlike the S21 Ultra, which, with a lot of unique features, comfortably wears the flagship crown, the S21+ is neither here nor there. I am in no way implying that the S21+ is a bad device – far from it. But allow me to elaborate on that in the detailed review that follows. Let’s first get the major features of the S21+ out of the way.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is likely all the 2021 flagship you'll need, offering great performance, improved battery life and a premium design, but with a downgrade in the display department and minor camera upgrades, S20 Plus owners may want to stay away.

At this point in Samsung's device strategy, the Galaxy S21+ is certainly the one going through an identity crisis. The Galaxy S21 has its compact size going for it, whereas the Galaxy S21 Ultra has all the fanciest and most advanced tech in Samsung's arsenal. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S21+ is... just an oversized Galaxy S21 with a larger battery. There's no signature feature that makes it stand out.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus review: A versatile package, despite imperfections
Source: Business Standard English
The Galaxy S21 Plus brings some serious upgrades over the predecessor with regard to design and performance. Besides, it brings 5G network support, which future-proofs you for the time 5G services roll out in India. Therefore, consider the Galaxy S21 Plus for its exquisite design, sleek performance and all-round connectivity. Otherwise, you are better off with the Galaxy S20 Plus, which is now significantly cheaper and excels over the Galaxy S21 Plus on display and camera parameters. If not averse to Chinese brands, you might like to explore the Xiaomi Mi 10 and OPPO Find X2, both of which offer more for prices significantly lower than what you pay for the Galaxy S21 Plus.

80% Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus review: The typical middle child
Source: Android Authority English
Despite the lack of microSD card, lower resolution display, and last-gen camera package, the Galaxy S21 Plus remains an excellent all-round smartphone in 2021. Samsung's Plus model is usually the standout yearly flagship, but this time it's awkwardly squeezed between a very affordable Galaxy S21 and the bleeding edge S21 Ultra.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus is a great Android phone with one of the best screens available right now. The only notable downside is that it doesn't offer a significant upgrade on last year’s S20 Plus, making it a hard sell for those who have bought a new handset in the past few years.

At a glance, Samsung has made one of its better Galaxy S launches in recent years with the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. They put the phones out early, yet managed to deliver a powerful and beautiful trio. Each device - be it the regular, plus, or Ultra variant - were stylish in their ways, and cater very well towards everyday use.

Source: Tom's Guide English
All told, Samsung nailed it with the Galaxy S21 Plus. It has most of the strengths of the smaller S21 in a bigger package. If you don’t want to shell out $1,199 for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the Plus model is the next best choice if you prefer a big phone.

Samsung Galaxy S21+ review: Feels like money well spent
Source: Sam Mobile English
I understand that the Galaxy S21+ is tantalizingly close to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which costs only $199 more. If you can spend that extra bit of cash then the Ultra is a no-brainer. It has an even larger display (which is also curved), has much more powerful cameras, a bigger battery etc.

So you've probably figured out where this is leading us. The Galaxy S21+ is a great all-round package and has the smartphone pillars well propped up. Ultimately, however, it lacks a standout selling point. In our opinion, if you want a Galaxy, there are no less than three that each build a stronger case for themselves than the S21+.

The Galaxy S21 Plus is a superb phone on its own merits, but it offers little that you don't get with the regular, and cheaper, Galaxy S21, apart from its larger screen. But if screen size is a deal-breaker for you, and you're happy to pay a bit more for the extra real estate, then you'll be plenty satisfied with the middle sibling in the S21 family.

80% Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G review: Familiar phone, but more powerful too
Source: The Indian Express English
I think the Galaxy S21+ is a good phone, a more polished version of the Galaxy S20+. If you are planning to upgrade from the Galaxy S20 to the Galaxy S21+, keep using your current phone for another year or so. But if you are coming from the Galaxy S9 or S10, the Galaxy S21+ will surely impress you. At Rs 81,999, the S21+ is not cheap—but this price is fair for a flagship Samsung phone that aims to compete with the iPhone 12 series.

Source: Neowin English
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy S21+ might look very similar to the Galaxy S20+ on paper. However, Samsung has enhanced the user experience in every way, and it shows. The Galaxy S21+ has a sense of refinement that the Galaxy S20+ simply lacked. The firm might be heavily promoting the Galaxy S21 Ultra and its 108MP primary camera, but it is the Galaxy S21+ which is the star of the show for me. It is not too big, offers great performance and battery life, packs a competent camera setup, and offers all this at a pretty reasonable price tag for a flagship smartphone.

Speaking of charging, as you've heard the news, there's no charger in the box. Samsung has once again followed Apple in this instance, but you know what they say, "first you mock them, then you join them". We've used Samsung's 25W charger to measure how quickly it juices up from 0% to 100%, and it does in 70 minutes. Quick enough for the most part, though other Android devices definitely zoom past that with way faster charging speeds.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus review
Source: Techradar English
The Plus model in the Galaxy S range was Samsung’s flagship phone just a couple of years ago, but with the introduction of the S20 Ultra last year it took something of a backseat. The gap between the models widens with the S21 series, and it feels like Samsung is very much pushing the most demanding users in the direction of the Ultra – very much like we saw it do with the Note 20 series. The S21 Plus could become a hard phone to recommend, given that last year’s S20 Plus has the same camera setup and screen size, but with a higher resolution; the S21 Plus has a better chipset and a larger battery, but anyone looking for either of those should look at the S21 Ultra, which ups the game in every way.

Source: Hardware Zone English
While it sounds like a lot of praise for the current batch of Galaxy S phones by Samsung, we're also not blind to the missteps that came with the Galaxy S21 series. If you ask us, the Koreans should've kept microSD compatibility instead of removing it, and bring back 1440p on to the S21 and S21+ for the people who actually know how to use them. The real shame is the removal of a charging adapter. Indeed, Samsung could've found it in them to at least give a universal fast-charging adapter, considering the sticker prices of these premium devices.

Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra hands-on: a stunner in the flesh
Source: Hardware Zone English
Since it was a hands-on before the official launch, we had limited time and space to explore the Galaxy S21 series with. We used the time to better understand Director's View, a new feature joining Samsung's already pro-grade series of cameras and camera functionalities. In a nutshell, Director's View is a unique live-editing feature for video recording. It has three main components. There's a key video feed that takes up most of the recording and a picture-in-picture feed of the opposing, user-facing camera. Three other video feeds on the right allow the user to preview the look and feel coming from Samsung's other rear lenses running in real-time (called Live Thumbnail). Tapping on any of the three feeds would swap the main feed out for the other. In a completed recording, you actually do not see any of previews from other lenses - only the picture-in-picture feed and the main, world-facing footage remains.

After a steady barrage of leaks and rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G is finally official. Announced as the middle-ground phone between the Galaxy S21 5G and S21 Ultra, the S21+ combines a large display and battery without surging past the $1000-barrier. Just like its predecessor, the Galaxy S20+, the S21+ feels like the phone for people who enjoy a large device but don’t necessarily need the extra pizzazz or can stomach the price tag associated with the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.
