Verdict
Samsung has launched the Galaxy S21 Plus that gets a premium price tag. It features an AMOLED display with support for 120Hz refresh rate. The phone uses the latest octa-core Exynos 2100 chipset with 8GB RAM for heavy performance. You have 256GB storage that is not expandable. The triple rear cameras offer dynamic shooting capabilities. But the selfie camera is only 10MP which is lower than what we expect at this price. Also, 25W fast charging is not the standard in the flagship segment anymore. This is a highly-capable phone but could have been better.
