(CNN Spanish) – Samsung's new Galaxy S21 Plus (Galaxy S21 +) cell phone, which hit the market in January, is worth US $ 200 less in the United States than the Galaxy S20 Plus at launch (the same launch price in Mexico), but it brings a screen and battery almost as big as the Galaxy S21 Ultra (US $ 1,099 or MX $ 29,999), while it has a design more similar to the Galaxy S21.

With this, The Galaxy S21 Plus manages to have a more like design than the Galaxy S21 Ultra, a very reliable battery life, an attractive design, the same Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100 processor (depending on the market) and the same base functions.

Does this do this the Galaxy S21 Plus is the perfect balance of this new generation of Samsung flagship phones ? Probably yes for some, but it also puts you in a tricky position because the Galaxy S21 offers almost the same in a more compact size for $ 200 or MX $ 5,000 less, while for $ 200 more you get the Galaxy S21 Ultra which has better cameras, more RAM and some additional features that make it the best that Samsung can offer today.

However, the best thing about the Galaxy S21 Plus is in managing to offer an experience not unlike the Galaxy S21 Ultra in a device that It is less heavy and thick, making it more comfortable to use and carry with you. Compared to the Galaxy S21, the main advantage is its large screen that allows a better content consumption experience, while its battery also offers better usage time.

Price of Galaxy S21 Plus

The price of Galaxy S21 Plus is the United States of US $ 999 for the version of 128 GB of storage and US $ 1,049 for the version with 256GB of storage in the US

The price of the Galaxy S21 Plus in Mexico is MX $ 24,999 for the version of 128GB or MX $ 26,999 for the 256GB version. The version of the Galaxy S21 Plus that is sold in the United States can be imported into Mexico through Amazon with a starting price of MX $ 25,499.

card slot The Galaxy S21 Plus has the same design of the Galaxy S21, which makes it a bit different from the S21 Ultra.

This means that the Galaxy S21 Plus has a flat screen that has a camera centered on the top that is integrated through a hole, it does not have a headphone jack traditional 3.5 mm and has a module that is integrated into the metal frame and has three cameras (the flash is outside the module) .

The rear glass, matte type, allows it to attract less fingerprints, but they also make it more slippery than the Galaxy S20 Plus. Also, its smooth metal edge does not help provide a good grip.

On the other hand, its flat screen makes its edge feel stiffer and sometimes uncomfortable in the hands. It is true that the curved screen makes controlling things on the side edges more difficult or inefficient, but the curvature often helps make it more ergonomic.

Despite this, the Galaxy S21 Plus is still a resistance certified cell phone IP68 waterproof, it can be charged wirelessly and can also charge other devices wirelessly when placed on the back of it.

One of the biggest changes to the Galaxy S21 Plus from its previous generation is the lack of a card slot microSD, this means that it is no longer possible to expand the storage just by putting a microSD card in it, but what you have is all you can use, beyond cloud storage.

Lee: Mysterious '1' notification scared off Samsung Galaxy

users This is certainly bad news for users because, although we have all taken advantage of this function, in any case it provides the peace of mind of pod To get more storage at any time and at a low cost

With this in mind, users will now be driven to buy the 256 GB version so as not to suffer so much with cell phone storage, but it is good that this only costs US $ 50 in the United States. In Mexico it is necessary to pay MX $ 2,000 more (more expensive, but at least it is cheaper than the MX $ 3,000 that you have to pay for the same increase in an iPhone 12 Pro).

Another shortcoming of the Galaxy S21 Plus compared to its predecessors is in mobile payment technology, because although it has NFC, it no longer has MST, which was the most important difference it had with Apple Pay and most Android cell phones : a technology that It allowed it to be compatible with payment terminals that did not have NFC and that simulated the magnetic signal of a credit card

Something strange is that now the SIM card drawer is located on the lower edge and is now right next to a microphone, which means that one can easily go wrong when inserting the tool to extract this drawer.

The design is one of the biggest changes to the Galaxy S21 Plus versus the Galaxy S20 Plus and it's a good change. This appearance makes it feel a little more elegant, modern and different from other cell phones on the market.

In addition, this design is one of the greatest advantages that the Galaxy S21 Plus has versus the Galaxy S21 Ultra, since although it feels a The S21 Ultra is slightly more premium, it is thicker, heavier and more uncomfortable to use.

Screen and better integrated fingerprint reader

The Galaxy S21 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen with a Full HD + resolution that although it means a step back in the series, it is not the end of the world.

It is true that the Galaxy S20 Plus had a QHD + screen that provides a higher pixel density, but by default it was set to Full HD + and perhaps not everyone has changed that resolution because maybe They did not know and because with that resolution the refresh rate had to be lowered from 120 Hz to 60 Hz.

With this resolution it offers a good experience, with great detail and the screen also reproduces good colors and its brightness is adequate suitable for all kinds of conditions.

An improvement that this screen brings is that now its update rate is variable, to change between 48 Hz and 120 Hz depending on what you do with this cell phone. This is good because in use you can notice the difference of the change, but this allows the battery life to be wasted less and last longer.

On the other hand, the fingerprint reader (ultrasonic) integrated in the screen also improved considerably . Samsung claims that this fingerprint reader is 77% larger and it is also faster. In use, the experience may vary a little as usual, but without a doubt this fingerprint reader allows you to unlock the cell phone more effectively, or at least with fewer failed detections to look more like the best optical readers out there. market, such as the OnePlus 8 Pro .

The screen of the Galaxy S21 Plus is 6.7 inches with a Full HD + resolution .

Performance

The Galaxy S21 Plus is one of the first cell phones with the Snapdragon 888 processor and the first, along with the other S21s, to use Samsung's Exynos 2100 processor

Our test unit is the version with a Snapdragon 888 processor, but apparently the Exynso 2100 considerably improves over its predecessor to better compete with the Snapdragon.

version In general, the Galaxy S21 Plus is fluid in everything you do, but we expected that the improvement was going to be much bigger. Compared to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (US $ 1,099), the difference in speed in daily use is small, although in performance tests it makes more difference

The biggest difference in performance is noticeable in the cameras, where the S21 Plus takes less time to process images, but with the main camera, keep in mind that the Note 20 Ultra has a 108-megapixel camera that requires more processing time. Even comparing the Note 20 Ultra with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the difference in processing time is more similar, although the S21 Ultra is still a bit faster.

In general use, the cell phone is fast in practically all daily tasks , but it is also sometimes a bit slower than the Galaxy S21 Ultra, probably because of the difference in RAM.

Benchmarks Geekbench 5: 1,069 (single core) and 3,228 (multiple cores) 3DMark Sling Shot Unlimited: 9,807 Duration of battery: very reliable

A notable improvement over its predecessor, the Galaxy S20 Plus, is the battery life. The Galaxy S21 Plus has a 4,800 mAh battery, which is 300 mAh larger than its predecessor, and thanks to this – and possibly the new processor and new display – the battery life is reliable.

With general use, the Galaxy S21 generally managed to last a whole day, after browsing for hours on the internet and social networks, making at least one call, listening to music for at least 30 minutes and taking at least 15 photos. experience, this battery life was longer than what we had with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, but slightly less than what we achieved with the Galaxy S21 Ultra when set to Full HD + resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. When the S21 Ultra is set to QHD + and 120 Hz, the Galaxy S21 Plus offers better battery life

A novelty of the Galaxy S21 Plus is that the cell phone no longer comes with a charger in the box, similar to how Apple did with the iPhone 12 However, Samsung reduced the price of the charger to US $ 19.

Cameras

The cameras of the Galaxy S21 Plu s are practically the same as the Galaxy S20 Plus and the news comes mainly through software with more optimizations and new functions.

This means that the Galaxy S21 Plus has a 12 megapixel main camera, a 12 megapixel wide angle and a 64 megapixel telephoto with the ability to do 3x optical zoom (hybrid) that also allows you to take 64 megapixel photos, although by default it takes 12 megapixel photos.

This combination allowed the Galaxy S20 Plus to offer one of the best cameras on the market and here it is still the same case, but the improvements are very few and it is possible that some of the functions of the Galaxy S21 will reach the S20 in the future.

In full sunlight, the Galaxy S21 Plus achieves great detail and color balance. In situations with less light, the cell phone sometimes tries to illuminate the scene a lot and overexposes the images, but the detail is not lost much. The night mode manages to offer good results, but it is below what the Galaxy S21 Ultra offers and also many times it is below the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

The portrait mode of the Galaxy S21 Plus continues to work similar to previous generations where if the subject moves a little the face comes out very blurry. In addition, generally the cell phone does not capture the photos immediately when you touch the shutter (in all kinds of photos), but there is a small delay.

In these portrait photos, the Pixel 5 continues to do a better job because in less Sometimes you have photos blurred from motion and it also beats you at capturing photos more immediately when you touch the shutter button. However, where I think the Galaxy S21 Plus improved was also in the detection of the edges of the subject and portrait mode, to offer better photos.

Another novelty is that now the faces in the photos are no longer always softened, but By default, this function is deactivated to offer more naturalness in the faces.

In terms of video recording, the Galaxy S21 Plus also brings some better ones that allow it to have a little better stability than before, as well as offering good detail and good colors.

Director's View is one of the most important new features of the cameras and allows you to see all three four cameras in real time to record with both a rear and front and to be able to switch between the three rear cameras with ease. In case you were in doubt, you can still record 80K video, but it is at 24fps.

In general, the cameras are very good, but the improvements compared to the Galaxy S20 are small and both the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and the Galaxy S21 Ultra follow beating it in zooming and photos at night, mainly.

The 10 megapixel front camera brings similar results, which is good but not new to stand out in the market.

Conclusión

Galaxy S21 Plus is an excellent cell that despite the new sacrifices (microSD card slot, MST, screen with maximum resolution of Full HD +, charging adapter and headphones in the box) make it a very complete one.

This Samsung cell phone is a better option than the Galaxy S21 if you want a big screen, but without a doubt the Galaxy S21 Ultra is superior because it offers better cameras and a more advanced screen, among other small things. The advantage of the S21 Plus over the Ultra is in the design that allows it to be more comfortable as it is less thick and heavy, while it also costs US $ 200 less or MX $ 5,000 less than the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

However, this time the Galaxy S21 Ultra differs more from the S21 Plus than what they did in the previous generation, so many will be driven to pay a little more to acquire the Ultra and for many the additional cost that it represents compared to to the Galaxy S21 it would not be worth it because it mainly brings a battery and a larger screen (and UWB) and the rest is the same.

The Galaxy S21 Plus represents more than anything an evolution of the previous generation and the biggest change is in its design. With that said, the bottom line is that the Galaxy S21 Plus is not worth buying if you have a Galaxy S20 or a Galaxy Note 20 / Note 20 Ultra, but it would be a good option for users who have later devices.

In today's market, The Galaxy S21 Plus is positioned at the top of the market along with the other S21s for all that it offers, but soon more cell phones will arrive with the same Snapdragon 888 processor that will eliminate one of the main advantages that it currently has compared to others. Android phones.
