Samsung Galaxy A21s Review and Specifications
Design and Screen
When you first touch the Samsung Galaxy A21s, the impression that appears when looking at the body of the phone is sexy and smooth. Understandably, the back casing of the mobile dimension 163.6 mm x 75.3 mm x 8.9 mm, plated with a special blue color.
When viewed from various angles, the casing reflects a combination of attractive colors, such as auroras.
In addition, the rear camera quartet arranged to form the letter L pattern also seems impressive that this cell phone is high-caste, although it comes down to fill the mid-end market. Moreover, this phone also has a fingerpint that is placed not far from the rear camera.
Unfortunately, the beauty of the casing is easily tarnished by the user’s fingerprints. This is also exacerbated by the absence of softcase in the Samsung Galaxy A21s sales box.
As for the placement of holes and buttons, the right side of the phone is used for the power button and volume settings. The left side for the dual SIM card slot + MicroSD, and the top is left plain. As for the bottom of the phone is occupied by a variety of holes, ranging from 3.55 mm audio jack, USB Type-C, and speakers.
Turning to the front, the 6.5 inch screen spreads 1,080 x 2,400 pixels. The upper left corner of the screen is also spiked with Infinity O Display to form a punch hole screen which also serves as a ‘home’ for selfie cameras.
Talking about performance, of course it can not be separated from the chipset that is the driving brain of this phone. For your information, the Samsung Galaxy A21s is powered by an Exynos 850 chipset with 8 nm architecture.
With such a small size, this chipset not only accelerates the performance of the cell phone, but also can streamline battery usage.
In addition, the Exynos 850 carries a Cortex-A55 octa-core CPU with a maximum frequency of 2.0 GHz and a Mali-G52 GPU that can support processing and graphics.
As for storage capacity, Suara.com is given the opportunity to review the Samsung Galaxy A21s with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Even so, this phone also has a 6GB RAM version and 64GB ROM which is certainly sold at a more expensive price.
Shifted to the software, this phone already uses the latest interface made by Samsung, One UI 2.1 which is based on the Android 10 operating system.
As explained earlier, the Samsung Galaxy A21s has four rear cameras that are arranged to form the letter L and side by side with the LED Flash.
For the configuration itself, the main sensor is 48 MP (F / 2.0), 2 MP depth lens, (F / 2.4), 2 MP macro lens (F / 2.4), and 8 MP Ultra Wide lens (F / 2.2). The front camera resolution of 13 MP (F / 2.2).
After trying out the camera of this phone, both the back camera and selfie, the results are quite satisfying, including when shooting at night.
Even so with the live bokeh feature that is still amazing to provide a neat blur effect. For cameras, the Samsung Galaxy A21s meets expectations, certainly if viewed from the perspective of consumers in this class.
Samsung Galaxy A21s is equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery capacity that already supports the 15 Watt fast charging feature. Within a day, this phone only requires a single battery recharge even though the device has been used for chatting, playing games, YouTube, social media, to surf in cyberspace.
Admittedly, the Samsung Galaxy A21s offers a smooth body that is supported by the performance and capabilities of the camera that is alus.
But if you want to compete in the middle class, especially below, the official tag of Rp2,799,000 seems less friendly to money. With similar prices, other brands offer higher specs, such as 4/6 GB RAM and 64/128 GB internal memory.
