Is the Samsung Galaxy A21 a good buy in 2021?

Is the Samsung Galaxy A21 a good buy in 2021?

Although its high-end devices tend to get the lion's share of attention from the media, Samsung offers a ton of downmarket options, too — many in the sub-$250 space, like the Galaxy A21. When we reviewed it last year, we concluded that, while it wasn't really groundbreaking option in the affordable space, it was a fine pick if it met your budgetary and performance needs. But is that still true today?

Samsung Galaxy buyer's guide: The best Samsung phones at every price in 2021

Samsung is probably the best-known manufacturer of Android devices on the planet — you've likely known some less-tech-savvy people who refer to Android phones on the whole as "Galaxies."

Samsung's April update is headed to even more phones and tablets — here's the complete list

Samsung has put a lot of effort into improving its software reputation, and a big aspect of that change has been a renewed focus on issuing regular security updates. Over the last couple years, Samsung has frequently managed to beat Google to the punch, and that continues even now as the Galaxy Note10, Z Fold2, and S21 have all received the April security patch, more recently followed by the Galaxy A52, S20 FE, and the S10 line.

Samsung tries to lure iPhone users with a web-based demo of Android

Samsung tries to lure iPhone users with a web-based demo of Android

The very first time I ever used Android, it was loaded up as a live bootable partition on a MicroSD card shoved into my HTC Fuze. I'm sure the Windows Mobile installation on the phone's internal storage felt very jealous, because the rest is history.

A direct competitor to Tile, SmartTags are designed to help you keep track of keys, wallets, and anything else that has a habit of disappearing on its own. Although the standard SmartTags have been on sale for a little over two months now, the enhanced Tag+ model lagged behind a bit. Samsung has now announced retail availability: April 16th.

We've got our closest look yet at Samsung's successor to the Galaxy A71

We've got our closest look yet at Samsung's successor to the Galaxy A71

Samsung's mid-range Galaxy A series is deep and wide, much more so than the mainline S series. The latest A phone to break cover is the A82, also referred to as the "Quantum2" in its leaked materials. It's a sequel to the Galaxy A Quantum announced last summer, which was a variant of the excellent Galaxy A71.

Samsung's new budget phones are coming to the US, but only one will get three years of updates

Samsung already announced its international lineup of 2021 A-series devices — some last year, some last month. They look promising, with sleek designs, capable specs, and some serious improvements over last year's selection. But it turns out the US selection will look a bit different at launch. For one, no fun colors: the whole series will initially only be available in monochrome colorways stateside. There are also currently no plans to launch the A72 in the US. Still, there's plenty for American customers to be excited about — and soon.
