One of the best smartphone of 2022. It's a flagship with 4 years of android upgrade, super fast with excellent viewing angles. It's slim and light and feels premium in hand. I see lots of negative comments about this phone but actually it's a great phone and value for money.

I ... moreI think you should pick Galaxy S21 FE. it has flagship chipset , and for the camera as well because it's set-up as flagship camera, yes i just 12MP but for me MP doesn't make great impact. Samsung give 4 times update , it'll give this device one more advance than S21. and ofc s21 fe the way powerful rather than a73

        My budget is 40000-60000. Should I go for A73 or S21 FE? I want a good camera and also long term support.

              DanZak, 23 Jun 2022I have the S21FE 5G, 8gb ram, 256gb storage, Exynos 2100 va... moreI agree I also have the same phone no issues till date

                I have the S21FE 5G, 8gb ram, 256gb storage, Exynos 2100 variant and can say that it has been working great despite the negative comments regarding it being inferior to Snapdragon 888.
                Remember the Exynos 2100 is an overclocked Snapdragon 888, because aside from both being 5nm processor, they both have the exact same cpu core architecture (Cortex X1, Cortex A78 and Cortex A55) and both are manufactured by Samsung, just that the Exynos variant has higher clock speeds. So why does it score worse in regards to performance in benchmarks? It is only because of the GPU performance where SD reigns. Adrena 660 is by far better than the Mali G78 and this greatly affects game performance and benchmarks.
                For those curious, I ran antutu v9 below 25 degress Celsius and it hit 803,607 points! And did just as good as SD if not better. It is when it heats up that the performance degrades a bit. (Note that if your device retains cool cpu temperatures then performance won't be substantially affected). Ofcourse if it does heat up it won't be as bad as to affect gameplay but regardless heat management has been a common problem in Exynos variants. (As of late Snapdragon too!)
                Sorry for the long comment, I just wanted to give assurance for those whose only choice in their country is the Exynos variant. Rest assured it performs flawlessly. Especially after the recent upgrades.

                  julio, 21 Jun 2022after a long time ( iphone user ) i decided to buy android ... morevery, very sad....I have mine, Snapdragon edition since april and apart for the average battery life, everything is just fine, not a single problem, it already received the normal face plant on concrete and a cooling bath during a hot day and it survived without a scratch ( i have it in the official case and with a screen protector). Rest is just very good, software, cameras, no complains.

A52 is a mid range phone with inferior chipset. It's normal. Every phone with a flagship chipset from that generation lasts around the same. If you need better battery life, you need to downgrade to A73.

                          Shadocx, 18 Jun 2022Just wanted to point some specifications seems wrong: 103.9... moreDear GSMArena, Samsung US, Samsung UK, Samsung FR and Samsung HK, all say the S21 FE's display has a 2340 x 1080 resolution, so a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, just as I thought.
                          The phone also has USB 3.2 Gen 1 speeds, as stated on Samsung US, FR and HK.
                          If you could fix the specifications, that would be highly appreciated.

                            A great phone in all the aspects .. it is perfect and neat .. Great cameras too!

                              Just wanted to point some specifications seems wrong: 103.9 cm2 (~89.6% screen-to-body ratio)
                              Resolution: 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~401 ppi density)
                              The size in cm2 doesn't match with other phones of the same display size and aspect ratio.
                              The screen to body ratio can't possibly be higher than the S21+, S22 and S22+, since the S21 FE has a noticeably bigger chin than those.
                              The overall size of the phone makes me believe the display's aspect ratio is actually 19.5:9 just like the S22 and S22+, so is the display resolution, most likely 1080 x 2340.
                              Watching videos on YouTube also made me notice how both the S22 and S21 FE show the same amount of informations in a full screen video on the YouTube app, if the S21 FE was really 20:9 aspect ratio it would cut a bigger portion of the video, just like wider aspect ratios phones do.
                              I could be all wrong, are those specs straight from Samsung mobile official spec sheet?
                              Lemme know guys if you noticed these things and what do you think.

                                I got this phone about a week ago (snapdragon version) my previous phone was a Galaxy A52. The phone is great in all aspects except battery life. I have followed XDA's Samsung optimizations for the battery life and still the battery is not as good on lasting a full day as my a52. But other than this, all other aspects of the phone are great. I would recommend this phone if you have regular access to charging in your day to day life. If you can only charge your phone at night or once a day, then this may not be the phone for you. I hope they provide a software update to correct the battery issue somehow.

                                  Sarah, 04 Jun 2022Help what phone to get the galaxy s21 FE or the Oppo find X... moreThe FE got flagship chipset and flagship cam, the lite got midrange chipset similar with A series and midrange camera also similar with A series, Oppo Find X Lite series just a rename from Oppo Reno series, not quite similar with regular Find X, while S FE series is similar with regular S series just cut off some expensive gimmick

                                    Rami Hamza, 09 Jun 2022I own S21 FE as a secondary phone and it is very good phone... moreActually to be corrected, Oppo is similar with Samsung for Premium Price Class, more beautiful design and more support, While Realme is similar with Xiaomi for Lower Price with good spec, also similar having ads inside while realme can be opt out

                                    But yeah Samsung has greater ecosystem and update support than Oppo

                                      Only the Exynos version is available in my country.
                                      Overall how does it perform? Battery life? Some gaming? Does it overheat?
