Should Galaxy S20 Fan Edition owners upgrade to the Galaxy S21?

Should Galaxy S20 Fan Edition owners upgrade to the Galaxy S21?

The Galaxy S20 Fan Edition was one of the best smartphones of 2020, as it included most of the features of Samsung's more expensive phones at a lower $700 (or $600, or $550) price point. It clearly served as inspiration for the newer Galaxy S21 series, as the phone has the same plastic casing and flat display as the Fan Edition.

There are three models, same as last year, but the changes between them (especially the Ultra vs. the others) are more substantial than with the S20 series. The cheaper phones take clear inspiration from the success of the Galaxy S20 FE, while the Ultra inherits features from the Note series.

This December Pixel Feature drop change still hasn't landed on all Pixels

Google's most recent December Feature Drop delivered plenty of new features for the company's Pixel phones. But one specific change is still missing for many device owners: the new grid size options in the Pixel launcher.

It can even help with accessibility for those without much in the way of fine motor control. But, unfortunately, the option still isn't present for everyone.
