With the Galaxy S20 starting at a steep price of $999, the introduction of the Galaxy S20 FE was more than just a welcome move. The "flagship on the cheap" offered a whole lot of value for $699, and made it almost irrational to spend more to get the Note20 or the S20. We're expecting the same from the Galaxy S21 FE, and now a new leak gives us our first look at the device.

These are the best chargers for your Samsung Galaxy S21 (since it doesn't come with one)

Galaxy S21 review, one month later: Reclaiming the title

"Good" and "bad" smartphones can have qualifiers — as in, "good but too expensive" or "bad but so cheap it doesn't really matter." After all, everything is worth something to someone.

The smallest S21 was part of that sale, too, but it only dropped $100 at the time. Now, it's dropped another $50 to just $650 — cheaper than even Google's Pixel 5, an older and less-powerful phone.

Samsung's One UI 3.1 adds Google Home device controls to quick settings

One of the most noticeable changes in Android 11 was the addition of smart home device controls to the power menu, but Google didn't require all phones with Android 11 to display the new controls. Samsung stuck to the old power menu design with its version of Android 11, known as One UI 3.0, but the smart home controls have now made an appearance on the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Tab S7/S7+.
