Is no one going to talk about not including a charger anymore? The customer must have the option to get one or not.

Guaranteed Samsung S21FE (Failed Edition):
1.No SdCard
2 No 3.5mm Jack
3 Forced Crappynos Chip instead of SD for certain markets e.g Aus and India confirmed
4 who wants this when you can get a better built S21 or s21+ for similar or cheaper price when its on sale especially when s22 is just 1 month away.

They removed all the good things that "fans"actually want in the s20FE ....who is the product genius at Samsung who thought this will be a hit like the old S20 FE?

Anonymous, 10 Jan 2022Why call it a Fan Edition when everything most fans want we... moreTrue, I think the S10 lite name was more clear. And the real fans would have bought the S21 a year ago. Maybe it's Samsungs way of saying "Our fanboys will buy anything, suckers!" Well to be honest, the S20 FE was good value, even if it had screen issues. But this S21 FE is just badly timed, badly equipped and badly priced.

Some European countries sell this for 499€ now which I find is a good price.

Why call it a Fan Edition when everything most fans want were taken out? No 3.5mm or Expandable storage?

Samaung hasn't learned from the mistake that put the former J- and A-series to halt. Too many models; same features.
Why not make the S21 (base) available as cheaper along with S22? Why shoot a different trajectory (FE)?

Where's the "Not interested" option?
This is more of a mid-range killer, not flagship killer. The last option is useless.
No SD card slot = NO BUY! 👎👎👎

Punch hole, no 3.5 or expandable storage.

Whether it arrived five years ago or five years from now, it's worthless landfill garbage.

Random fact. The exynos 2100 is better than the Sd888, especially in battery life.

imho,,,
S21 FE is Dummy Product.


deliberately made to artificially increase Galaxy S22 series perceptive "value" when its launch.

Was looking forward to it long ago. But no headphone jack and sd card slot = no buy.

No more Samsung phones for me. Switching to Sony. Willing to pay top dollar for a flagship with BASIC FEATURES.

If you look at it as a standalone device, it's great, but there is too much competetion in its own ranks so it feels a bit useless, but that doesn't mean anyone should regret buying it because it's still a fantastic phone that everyone would be happy using.

cozxta, 09 Jan 2022It has the standard aluminum shield on top of the SoC, and ... moreYes the heat dissipation is somewhat lacking, same as the iPhone. But I just wanted to clarify the person’s statement. Like some people said iPhone has zero heat dissipation, but actually utilises a heat spreader underneath the chipset.

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2022Lol it does have a thermal pad what are you talking about? ... moreIt has the standard aluminum shield on top of the SoC, and a thin layer of graphite of top of it, nothing more than that, I'm a hardware smartphone technician, I know what the inside of phones looks like. No vapour chamber, no thermal paste inside of this particular model, the plastic build doesn't help either, since plastic isn't a good heat conducting material, on hot climates like Brazil where I live this phone suffers from heating, shitty heat dissipation and this is true, compare OnePlus 8T/9R with S20 FE, they have waaaaaayyyy better thermals inside and SD865 runs full power.
