the best smartphone of 2021 is on sale

Released last year, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will soon be replaced by the new generation of high-end smartphones from the South Korean brand, but it remains an excellent choice in 2022. Especially during the winter sales, its price becomes more advantageous by going from 1,259 euros to 999 euros.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra: the best smartphone of 2021 is on sale

Our favorite at Frandroid is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Indeed, we elected this smartphone as the best smartphone of the year 2021, because it is simply excellent in all areas, from design to performance to photos. And for the 2022 winter sales, we are pleased to announce that it costs 260 euros less than usual.

The strengths of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

  • Le design premium
  • The large 120Hz Quad HD AMOLED display
  • The power of the Exynos 2100 + 12 GB RAM combo
  • An excellent camera (108 megapixels, 100x zoom, etc.)

Instead of the usual 1,259 euros, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is now on sale at 999 euros at La Fnac.

Premium design and S Pen compatibility

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is all premium and the design is no exception. Its format is quite imposing with a diagonal of 6.8 inches, but the quality of the finishes on the contours of the smartphone makes it very pleasant in the hand. The screen is not flat and offers to differentiate itself from other S21 by curving its edges on the sides. That being said, this touch screen is excellent and is quite simply one of the best on the market, since AMOLED with a Quad HD definition at 3200 x 1440 pixels and an adaptive refresh rate at 120 Hz. The maximum brightness is also very high. to enjoy content in any situation.

You should know that the screen of the S21 Ultra allows the use of S Pen, but the stylus is unfortunately not included in the box. There is also no slot to store the stylus when it is no longer in use. Too bad, but at least that leaves the choice to users whether or not to use the features of the S Pen on a daily basis.

Excellent in all areas

The S21 Ultra may not be as powerful as the competitors equipped with Qualcomm’s new chip, but its Exynos 2100 engraved in 5 nm and supported by 12 GB of RAM already deliver considerable power to meet all the needs that may have a smartphone user in 2021. On the benchmarks, the performance is almost equivalent to what Apple offers with its A14 Bionic chip on board its iPhone 12 Pro Max. It is therefore difficult to see anything missing from this configuration today, nor even for the following years.

The photo is then one of the strong points of this ultra premium smartphone. The photo module much more protruding than on the S21 and S21 + to offer the following composition: a main sensor of 108 megapixels, an ultra wide-angle of 12 megapixels, a telephoto x3 of 10 megapixels, another telephoto lens, this time x10 , still 10 megapixels and a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. The result is at the rendezvous, where Samsung now manages to offer a digital zoom up to x100 much less anecdotal than on the S20 Ultra. The possibilities are numerous and the quality is simply excellent, to make it one of the best photophones of this year.

It will not disappoint in terms of autonomy either. Samsung has incorporated in its S21 Ultra a large 5000 mAh battery to be prepared for all eventualities. On our personalized ViSer test – which simulates active use by alternating a plethora of applications of all kinds – the Galaxy S21 Ultra held up for 16 hours and 20 minutes. It’s an excellent score. However, we regret a fast charge that does not go beyond 25 W, especially since the charger is no longer provided in the box. Wireless charging is there to make up for it, as well as reverse wireless charging.
