The year 2021 has been far from conventional. However, the irregularities haven’t stopped technology in its ever evolving-form. This is especially the case with smartphones. New and improved models are flooding shelves — both tangibly and digitally. One manufacturer in particular with a wide range of impressive products is Samsung.
As one will see in this piece, Samsung released a plethora of very impressive smartphones. Many of the experts within the industry even believe that Samsung is currently setting the standard as it pertains to smartphones. We’ll dive in and look at a few of the more exciting options.
It’s easy to forget about the Samsung Galaxy Note 20. Oh, sure — the $1,299 Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is impossible to overlook, with its 6.9-inch adaptive 120Hz display, meticulous glass-and-metal design and absurd triple-camera bump. But the regular Note 20 has none of those things, leading some to dismiss it — perhaps unfairly — as a cut-rate afterthought in Samsung’s roster of premium handsets.
Let it be known I was among those guilty of writing off the Note 20 when it was unveiled. However, while the $999 Note 20 offers fewer of those head-turning features than its pricier sibling, it’s appropriately less expensive as well, by $300.
That’s not a small chunk of change these days. And ultimately, if you’re buying one of Samsung’s new Notes to get things done more efficiently, the cheaper Note 20 gives up nothing on the Ultra. You still get the same powerful Snapdragon 865 processor, versatile S Pen and Samsung’s latest and greatest productivity-minded software, from the new Notes app to wireless DeX Mode projection.
If you absolutely need the best camera and display in your phone, the Note 20 Ultra is waiting for you. But if you don’t mind sacrificing on those fronts to get the same great workhorse for less, there is absolutely nothing cut rate about the regular Note 20 except its price.
Galaxy Z Flip
The Galaxy Z Flip has a number of people delighted at its properties. As in the name of the product, this is an Android smartphone with a foldable display. Many in the industry praise the construction of the phone, as it’s generally smaller than others in its class.
The Galaxy Z Flip is the first foldable glass display smartphone in the history of Samsung. Debuting in February, the phone was offered in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black. The phone also features a 6.7-inch display, a hideaway hinge and ‘flex mode’. This mode enables the phone to be free-standing — which then results in the user being able to watch a split-screen video. The top screen will feature a movie or media video — whereas the bottom will allow the user to control it accordingly.
On average, the Galaxy Z Flip can cost approximately $1,380.
Roughly costing $999.99, the Galaxy S20 is a very affordable option considering the bells and whistles it brings to the table. If one is a fan of taking high-quality pictures, this might be the phone for you. The Galazy S20 has 30X Space Zoom range. The picture quality captures immense deatil with this facet. It also involves a high-resolution telephoto sensor and a tremendous camera setup.
The video capabilities are also quite special. This phone can record 8K video (unlike most phones which offers 4K footage). It has a number of features (such as Single Take — an A.I. application) to enhance the recording process even further. Lastly, the RAM available in this phone can exceed many laptops on the market. When further mentioning that this phone is waterproof, there’s a ton to like about the Galaxy S20.
If one researches the online marketplace, you’ll see the Samsung Galaxy S20+ for as cheap as $699.99. Much like the S20, the S20+ has Single Take A.I., 8K video capabilities, and a waterproof build.
Additionally, the phone also possesses 5G capabilities. It also prides itself on being a phone with long-lasting battery life. The phone comes in Cosmic Black, Cosmic Gray, Cloud Blue, and Aura Blue.
The S20 Ultra is widely considered to be the most impressive Samsung smartphone when it comes to sheer size. It has the biggest screen of any Samsung smart phone (6.9-inch display). Duly, it has all of the camera capabilities of the S20 and S20+ — only enhanced further with a 10X telephoto snapper, 100X Super Resolution Zoom, 12 MP ultra-wide, and 108 MP.
Duly, the S20 Ultra has built-in stereo speakers, waterproof capabilities, and up to 512 GB of expendable storage. In a word, wow.
