    compact, but without losing characteristics of its similar models

    In the box it only has a type-c cable on both sides, neither charger nor housing. At least in my country, not even on the Samsung website there is a stock of casings and very little accessories, it is worth mentioning the offers added for the purchase, in my case they added the buds pro. It has no performance problems, and its screen is perfect for reading books and multimedia content for its 120 hr, in addition to not having a 2k screen, performance in games optimized for full hd screens is much better as well as its battery. The overheating of the Galaxy has decreased notably, but it is also noticeable by its plastic cover that maintains heat by overstressing it or when charging it. In general, it is one of the few compact high-end devices, that added to the few providers established in almost all countries makes it a good (if not the only) option for the Android market segment.

    Great device, though ..

    I upgraded a Galaxy S9 Plus to the new S21. Battery is good until the time the device starts to heat up. Lost MST technology (magnetic stripe) App Safe Folder lost unlock configuration using exclusive digital.

    Pros
    • The plastic back made the device more resistant;
    • Gorilla Glass Victus is excellent
    • Amoled screen is the best;
    • Fluidity;
    Cons
    • High temperature near the camera and on the left side towards the volume buttons under heavy use.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
