Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not overly impressed Upgraded from the s10 to the s21 and tbf there isn't much change. The battery life is just as bad as the s10 after having that for over a year. S10 actually looks better than the s21 which is a shame, over priced phone that doesn't out do the old generation of phone
