Important specs of the Samsung Galaxy S21 and that of Galaxy S21+ 5G.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 comes with a 6.2inch IPS LCD Display, 1080×2400 Pixels, 424PPI. Not too different from the Galaxy S21+ 5G with the only difference being the 1080×2460 Pixels.
2) Operating System
No difference here, both using Android 11.0; one UI 3.1.
Octa-Core Qualcomm SM8350 processor for both. And again, no difference.
8GB RAM for the Samsung Galaxy S21 while the Galaxy S21 runs with 6GB RAM. Samsung Galaxy S21 is a better choice here for gaming and other high space-consuming apps.
A movie freak looking for lots of space? The Samsung Galaxy S21 with twice as much space beats the Galaxy S21 device here. The former offers 128GB Built-in storage (with SD-card support) and the latter offers 64GB Built-in storage (with SD-card support).
A non-removable 4000mAh battery is sealed into the Samsung Galaxy S21 while the Galaxy S21 device comes with a slightly lower capacity of 5000mAh.
This will be the third spec on our list with no difference as we compare the 2 devices. They both have a 64MP + 10MP AI Quad Rear Camera. Pretty good and sharp.
As you would expect, they both come with a rear fingerprint sensor.
