Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus 5G is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Phone.. but the IMEI not in provider tables Samsung hasn't issued all the phone details to allow new contracts to be set up with 3 Will be 2 weeks without a phone
Date published: 2021-02-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from bulky and old look - memories of my S5 I recently had to move from my lovely S8+ with curves, slim and lovely feeling when holding it, to S21 and my first impressions was "going back in time, this phone (S21) its same as my old S5!". The metallic frame brought me memories of the plastic one that S5 had and not wanting to go back into that look again. I think I'll pass this phone to my wife eventually and I'll see what another Samsung phone I can find for myself at the time. In terms of quality, all good, as expected with top Samsung phones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Charger!!!!??? How on the Earth can you not include a charger in such expensive phone?
Date published: 2021-02-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dire battery life Absolutely dire battery life. Drains in a wink, despite following all advice. Even in airplane mode.
