The Exynos 9611 is a capable processor and can handle basic apps without a slow signal. However, we found that heavy apps take some time to load. Multi-tasking was smooth and we can switch between multiple apps without having to wait to reload them.

The fingerprint scanner on the back of the device is fast to unlock the device, as well as facial recognition. We found the speaker thin, which made the overall experience a bit more noticeable.

PUBG test

We played PUBG Mobile on Galaxy M21 to see how the phone handles. The game was set in HD with high-order graphics and the frame rate set to high. We noticed occasional hiccups in the gameplay indicating a drop in graphics quality. After playing for 15 minutes, we noticed that the device was slightly warmer when touched, and the battery recorded a 3% drop.

battery wear

Battery life was great for Samsung Galaxy M21. Thanks to the large battery of 6,000 mAh, the phone was used regularly for about two days. In our HD video loop test, the device lasted 21 hours and 48 minutes, but the Samsung phone automatically reduces brightness when the battery falls below a certain level. Also, a large battery takes more than two hours to fill. Using the provided 15W charger, the device increased to 21% in 30 minutes and 42% in an hour.

Samsung Galaxy M21 camera

The camera UI is easy to use. It has a visual enhancer which can detect the things mentioned in the camera and the phone can be set accordingly. Apart from regular photo and video modes, it has Live Focus, Pro, Night, Food, Super Slow and more.

Samsung Galaxy M21 is quick to lock focus and meter lights, but not so good at improving the view. In photo mode, Galaxy M21 saves the default 12-megapixel shots. In broad daylight, we liked the camera’s performance, and Galaxy M21 managed to get good details, and understood the text at some distance. However, we have preferred slightly more sophisticated outputs.

Final opinion

However, Galaxy M21 is an average tool at this price point. Contestants like Realme 6 and Redmi Note 9 Pro provide much more impressive performance and better cameras.
