Samsung’s latest smartphones are back on sale on Amazon now. All three Galaxy S21 variants have been discounted again: the Galaxy S21 5G has dropped to $ 699, the Galaxy S21 + 5G is on sale for $ 799, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has dropped back to $ 999. You’ll save a maximum of $ 200 depending on which model you choose and these are some of the best prices we’ve seen on the lineup. The only model that has been considerably cheaper recently is the S21 Ultra, which dropped to $ 900 on Samsung’s website for a limited time with the use of a coupon code.

We rate the Galaxy S21 as the best Android phone for the money, and that’s with its standard price tag of $ 800. It got a rating of 88 from us for its attractive new design, beautiful display, versatile cameras, and long battery life. Samsung’s new “contour cut” casing for the phone’s rear cameras is much more attractive than that of the previous hardware, and the almost edge-to-edge screen provides an immersive experience. The S21 has a 6.2-inch AMOLED display, with a resolution of 2400 x 1080, while the S21 + has a 6.7-inch display with the same resolution. Running on the Snapdragon 888 processor, these handsets have more than enough power to handle most things you throw at them – and in our testing, the S21 lasted about a day and a half before needing to be recharged.
As for the Galaxy S21 Ultra, it’s for those who don’t want to compromise on anything. It has 6.8 inch AMOLED display, 3200 x 1440 resolution, even better rear camera setup which includes 100x “Space Zoom” function, huge 5000mAh battery that can last up to two days with a single charge and an S Pen compatibility (although you will need to purchase this accessory separately). We also like that Samsung fixed most of the issues with last year’s premium model with the S21 Ultra, making it a good choice for power users. Given that its sky-high price of $ 1,200 is one of the main things that should give potential buyers pause, Amazon’s sale makes it easier to buy the S21 Ultra.
