Samsung Galaxy M21 full specifications, price, 6000 mAh battery: The Samsung Galaxy M21 packs in decent specifications and a big battery at a price that looks great on paper but can take aggressive competition from Xiaomi.

At first glance the Galaxy m21 looks almost identical to the galaxy m31 was launched last year. Galaxy m21 also has a 6000 milliamp hour battery and an exhaust 961 one processor more on this in a bit.

Samsung Galaxy M21 display

But now I want to talk about the display because it has become a big differentiating factor for Samsung's Galaxy M series phones. This lovely AMOLED display is the best feature of the galaxy m31 AMOLED panels are not very common in the sub 15,000 rupee price segment.

It’s great to see such a vivid panel here brightness levels are good and so are viewing angles. So you can consider the galaxy m21 if you are planning to watch a lot of videos on your smartphone.

The speakers are adequate but they sound tinny to me a side effect of the big display is that it is difficult to reach the top of the panel having said that the power button.

Samsung Galaxy M21 fingerprint scanner

The rear mounted fingerprint scanner are easy to teach the fingerprint scanner is quick to unlock the smartphone and so is face recognition. Samsung has been making phones in the galaxy M series out of plastic mainly to keep the cost down.

It looks like the galaxy m21 is made with a strict price in mind now this is one trade off. You’ll have to live with if you go for the galaxy M21 on to the software. This is an underrated part of the Samsung smartphone experience and the galaxy M21 has one UI 2.0 based on Android tape.

Which has impressed us on other Samsung smartphones with the galaxy m31. You need to be careful while setting up the device or Samsung will send you marketing notifications other than that the user experience is quite good.

You get nice features like Dolby Atoms for your phones a dark mode that looks great on this AMOLED display and always on this.

Samsung Galaxy M21 processor

Let’s talk about performance now the exhaust 96:1 one is a capable processor and can take care of basic apps without any signs of slowing down. However I did notice that heavy apps took some time to load.

The phone could switch between multiple apps without any issues. I played PUBG mobile on the galaxy m21 to see how the phone handles it. The game defaulted to the high settings with graphics set to HD and framerate set to high.

I did notice some occasional stutter in the gameplay at these settings after playing the game for 15 minutes. We noticed that the device was slightly warm to the touch and registered a 3% battery draw battery life on the galaxy M 21 has been excellent.

Samsung Galaxy M21 battery

This phone lasted us for two days with our regular use thanks to the 6000 milliamp hour battery in our HD video loop test. The device managed to last for 21 hours and 48 minutes the supplied 50 watt charger takes over 2 hours to charge the phone from 0 to 100 percent.

Samsung Galaxy M21 camera

Finally let's talk about the camera performance this phone has a triple camera setup and the specs are on your screen right now in daylight. We found the camera performance to be good and the galaxy m21 managed to capture good details and text at a distance was legible.

However we would have liked a bit more sharpness in the output. The wide-angle camera has a lower resolution which is evident in photos. It does not manage details as well as the primary shooter. It does offer you a wider field of view but there is visible Distortion for close-ups.

Low Light camera performance

The photos managed to create a natural depth effect between the subject and the background in our tests. The subject wasn't focused and sharp when shooting portraits using the live focus mode the galaxy m21.

Let’s you select the level of blur in the output low-light camera performance is not as good as some of the other smartphones. We have tested in this price range the galaxy m31 managed to keep noise under control but there was a water color lake effect in the output quality drops.

Samsung Galaxy M21 wide-angle camera

Further if you use the wide-angle camera in low light the night mode on the galaxy m21 manages to produce slightly better output.  But the phone crops the frame slightly to minimize shakes. This phone has a 20 megapixel selfie camera and the selfie is taken in daylight had good detail.

but beautification is enabled by default in low-light selfies had no noise but greens were visible on zooming in video recording max out at 4k for the primary camera. But there is a 10-minute limit for Clips which feels restrictive.

These selfie camera is capped at 1080p video recorded in daylight had a shimmer effect which could make your footage unusable. There is a super steady mode which delivers better stabilization. There is no stabilization at 4k and the shimmer effect was even worse in low-light.

Samsung Galaxy M21 video quality

The super steady mode did cause a drop in video quality. There are two main differences between the galaxy m21. The galaxy M21 has a high resolution selfie camera and is available at a lower price other than that the two phones are almost identical the lower price.

The better chance of getting updated to Android 11 at some point tips the scale in the galaxy M 20 ones favor. However the galaxy M 21 itself is just an average device at this price point competitors such as the realme 6 and the Redmi note 9 pro offer impressive performance and better cameras.

At roughly the same price so that was our review of this galaxy m21 now what do you think about the smartphone. Let us know in the comment section down below and as always for all things tech stay home, stay safe.
