In many ways, the Samsung Galaxy S21 loses more features than it gains when compared to last year’s Galaxy S20 – at least at first glance. Both the S21 and S21 Plus models retain essentially the same camera hardware found on the S20 and S20 Plus smartphones. The Galaxy S21 Ultra goes a little further with a 6.8-inch screen, a new matte finish in four attractive colors, and the latest chipsets from Qualcomm or Samsung.
