Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Too little, too late?

Samsung's budget flagship for 2021 didn't arrive until 2022, but is it still worth it?

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Too little, too late?

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE is here to serve as a more affordable option to Samsung’s full Galaxy S21 flagship. Samsung says the phone offers “fan-favorite features” like top performance and a solid camera packed into a stylish piece of hardware that fits naturally into the greater Samsung ecosystem. It does those things, to some degree, but the timing of the phone’s arrival to market is off, as is the price point, and that leaves the Galaxy S21 FE standing in a strange spot. Can the “Fan Edition” phone overcome its odd positioning and win over the hearts of Samsung fans? Find out in the Android Authority Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review.
