Don’t save “epic” for special occasions. With the Samsung Galaxy S21, Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G, or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, you can bring an ultra high-tech phone with you for everyday use. Packed full of cutting-edge technology, including the Galaxy lineup’s fastest processor yet, techies and busy bees alike will appreciate what the latest from Samsung have to offer.
Samsung Galaxy S21 & Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G
Turn heads with this stunning device, available in violet, silver, and black. The Galaxy S21 is a solid 6.2” and the S21+ 6.7”. Each comes with a crisp Infinity-O, dynamic AMOLED 2x, and super-smooth 120 HZ display. With all these great display features, it won’t be surprising if you spend more time looking at your device. But don’t worry–Samsung has taken extra measures to protect your eyes from strain with the S21’s eye-comfort shield.
The S21 and S21+ are rated at IP68 and contain Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™, so you know this phone can withstand much more than the majority of devices on the market.
Camera & Video
Perhaps the best features on this phone can be found with the cameras. The S21 and S21+ offer four cameras:
- 10MP front-facing selfie camera
- 12MP ultra-wide camera
- 12MP wide-angle camera
- 64MP telephoto camera
If these cameras didn’t already sound impressive enough, just wait until you hear about what they can do. For starters, these phones offer up to 30x digital zoom and a stunning night mode, so you’ll be able to capture even the tiniest details in all your shots, even in the dead of night. You won’t have to worry much about shaky hands, either, since these cameras come with Super Steady photo modes and Super Smooth 60fps Video modes with 8K video to keep everything looking crisp and smooth.
Selfie enthusiasts will appreciate the cutting-edge selfie mode that comes with Single Take AI, which enables you to take Insta-ready photos. This AI analyzes face, lighting, and more to adjust focus and make sure you and your subjects are stunning.
Battery, Processing Power & Memory
With such high-tech cameras and high-res displays, you would expect this phone’s battery to drain quickly; however, you would be wrong. The S21 and S21+ come with Samsung’s All-Day Intelligent Battery, which optimizes the phone to last even over 24 hours.
The 8GB of RAM and 265GB of built-in memory are powered by the 5nm processor. It’s all protected by Knox Security. If these features don’t offer you the storage you need, you can also synch with Microsoft OneDrive; this service offers automatic file synching, so you’ll never lose important data.
Charging is a breeze, too, with several hours’ worth of battery life charging in just a few short minutes. This feature alone makes these smartphones perfect for busy people. Don’t like cables? Not a problem; simply purchase the available wireless charger so you can get a battery boost on the go. If that weren’t great enough, the Wireless PowerShare option allows you to charge your ear buds and other devices with the Galaxy itself.
You won’t have to worry about these phones breaking the bank.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G takes everything great about the S21 and S21+ and then takes it up a notch. This phone measures in at 6.8” offers 50% more contrast. But that’s not all; this Samsung is the first of its lineup to be compatible with the S Pen, offering you greater precision and flexibility with how you use your phone.

- 40MP selfie camera
- 12MP ultra-wide camera
- 108MP wide-angle camera

You didn’t read that wrong; the wide-angle camera really does offer the “highest resolution in a smartphone.” Even better this phone offers up to 100x space zoom, which Samsung claims is “the most powerful zoom on a smartphone.” Throw in the Bright Night sensor, and you have a phone that can offer you studio-quality photos and videos any time, anywhere.
