Samsung Galaxy A21s is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arcore? Is this phone ARCore compatible? I want a new phone for my son, so he can play Minecraft Earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good phone Very good phone for cheap price, big screen and battery plus very good camera, nice pictures quality, can't ask for more at this price
Date published: 2020-11-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this phone, but ....... Have had the Galaxy A21s and found it to be a stable and easy to use phone. The 'but' is my only gripe ... I can't get it to wake up when message are received nor is there any indications of new messages, unless you physically wake the phone. Otherwise, I like it.
Date published: 2020-11-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as its predecessor. Its predecessor (from 4 years ago, a Galaxy but I can't remember its number) told me with a little noise when messages and e-mails had arrived, but this one doesn't, which is annoying. Also, searching in e-mails takes so long that I've stopped using it, which is a nuisance for my use. It doesn't fit in many pockets because it's too long. At home, where our mobile telephone reception isn't great, it is poorer at reception than the earlier Galaxy, in spite of using the same provider. Twice, I installed the fingerprint recognition feature. After a few swipes of a finger it stopped working, so I've abandoned this type of security. The bigger memory, even better camera than before, and the better battery life and very fast charging are its good features.
