The 108 MP main sensor is just for the name, don’t expect an extraordinary image quality. Rest it is a 5G smartphone with n77 & n78 bands. A decent smartphone for ₹ 20,999.00. Moto G 5G is its serious competitor with 11 5G bands, the same 750G chipset, and a 5000mAh battery. I prefer Moto G 5G. ( January Smartphone launches )

4. Samsung S21, S21+, S21 Ultra

On the 14th of January Samsung unveiled their first flagship series, the S21 series. ( 4th, January Smartphone launches ). All the smartphones were equipped with the Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100. You can have the best camera experience on the S21 series in the Android smartphone category. The design is unique and you can choose between multiple colors but the best one is the Phantom black on Samsung S21 Ultra.

the Samsung Galaxy S21 & S21+ is made up of plastic, which is a not so good option in this price range. On the other hand, Samsung S21 Ultra has an aluminum frame and glass back. Now the phones will not support expandable storage functionality, which is also a feature that will everyone expect in this price range, is it because Samsung wants you to buy the higher storage variant if you need it? or any other reason? Nextly Samsung has done a great job optimizing its devices for a better gaming experience in collaboration with Unity, & Microsoft, etc. And lastly “The Brand Name” the extra money is for that.
