Five Android 11 features you should be using on your Galaxy S21

Five Android 11 features you should be using on your Galaxy S21

When Android 11 arrived last year, it included a lot of new features to try. Samsung has manage to do fairly well at updating its devices this time around, with the S20 and Note20 series receiving Android 11 by the end of 2020, and many other phones getting it ahead of schedule. While Samsung added plenty of its own features, Google's enhancements still shine through, and here are the ones you really owe it to yourself to be using.

The Galaxy S21 is the only Android phone that doesn't suck at Snapchat

The Galaxy S21 is the only Android phone that doesn't suck at Snapchat

Snapchat on Android has historically proven to be pretty terrible when it comes to camera image quality. For years, the app would just be screenshotting the camera viewfinder and using that directly. It was effective (and arguably necessary based on the sheer amount of Android phones and differences in software between them) but sure didn't look too great. Now with the new S21 series, it seems like Snapchat is finally playing nice, and giving us some of the highest-quality Snaps we've ever seen.

5 ways the Galaxy S21 series is worse than the S20

5 ways the Galaxy S21 series is worse than the S20

There’s no denying that the Galaxy S21 series took some heavy inspiration from current Note handsets — both in form and function. Unlike last year, there’s a starker divide between the three Galaxy S21 models, and it shows. The questionable choices Samsung has made this time around result in the S21 phones feeling even worse than the outgoing S20 in some cases — and that can’t be stressed enough for the two cheaper options. Among these downgrades, there are a few that are just too glaring to pass over.

5 ways the Galaxy S21 series is better than the S20

This year’s Galaxy S21 phones aren’t the sort of big overhaul that the S20 line was, but they still bring some pretty noteworthy upgrades to the table. Samsung appears more open to experimenting with features this time around, and even carries forward some lessons it learned from the Note20 series. In ways like this, the Galaxy S21 is very much the sort of strong, iterative upgrade we had hoped for, as should become abundantly clear as we look at some of its stand-out features.

Here's what to expect when you inevitably drop your shiny new Galaxy S21

Here's what to expect when you inevitably drop your shiny new Galaxy S21

Last year, a significant number of Galaxy S20 series device owners weren't happy to find the glass covering their rear cameras destroyed without much provocation. This year, the S21 phones come with a metal-reinforced housing and smaller, individual covers featuring Corning's new Gorilla Glass Victor. So, does the new get-up actually stand up to drop tests?
