Talking about Display it is more restrictive, it removes complexity. You can visit and set the display to stick to 60Hz, if you want to seek out very much battery life as possible, or if you just love a bit of judder when you're scrolling through web pages. But then you'll be given a dynamic refresh rate and this allows the S21 to drop its refresh rate from 120Hz to 48Hz which solely depends on the task at hand. It’s not an upgrade you’ll have to necessarily notice this when you’re not scrolling, but it's a smart one that makes S21 more enjoyable to use.
The Galaxy S21’s photo is just a flush with color and detail, though, like Galaxy phones within the past, the colors are perhaps more saturated than those of the Google Pixel 5 when compared. The Pixel 5 delivers a hotter tone and more true-to-life colors, with a better dynamic range. However, zooming in the S21 picks out some finer details, likely thanks to its telephoto camera.
Moving over the processor, putting the Snapdragon 888-equipped S21 through a series of benchmarks, gives the chip a multi-core score of three,302 in Geekbench 5. It is slower than the iPhone 12, which raked during a score of three,859. But the S21, unsurprisingly, outpaces tons of other Android phones with the older Snapdragon 865. The graphics performance, the S21 topped out at 33 frames per second in 3DMark’s WildLife graphics benchmark.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy S21 shows up with a 4,000 mAh battery. This is fine for a phone of this size, though it is a pity that Samsung didn't increase the capacity a little. Although the adaptive refresh rate and improved chip efficiency may deliver better battery life.
The interface is very much elegant, completed with a redesigned Quick Panel and notification screen that feels less cluttered. It is appreciable that the redesigned lock screen allows widgets as well as the ability to place widgets on the screen and adjust their transparency.
One UI 3 still comes with a wide number of options to tweak your Galaxy experience, which some will love. It can even get a bit overwhelming sometimes when you just want to find one particular setting.
