Ever since the iPhone 12 was unveiled, Samsung has been on quite a rollercoaster when it comes to the charging bricks that we have become accustomed to receiving. The company poked fun at Apple's decision to remove the power brick, and then the rumors began swirling around the Galaxy S21. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQqTgY26RpU&ab_channel=Phandroid After the rumors ramped up, it seemed that Samsung was going to be making the same decision that Apple did, getting rid of the included charging brick. Now that S21 lineup has been unveiled, we now know everything that's included in the box: Quick Start Guide, USB Type-C Cable, and Ejection Pin. Chances are you already have some chargers hanging around that can be put to use, but if not, we've rouned up the best Galaxy S21 chargers. Best Galaxy S21 Wall Chargers Samsung 25W USB-C Charger Although Samsung is no longer including a charger in the box, the company still offers its own USB-C wall charger. This includes both the charging brick and USB-C to USB-C cable while being able to charge your Galaxy S21 at the fastest speed of 25W. Anker PowerPort Atom III Slim While Anker has the PowerPort Atom, which can charge up to 30W, it may not be the best option for everyone. The PowerPort Atom III offers an ultra-slim design with a bottom-facing USB-C charging port, an LED indicator, and charging speeds up to 30W. AUKEY Omnia 65W Fast Charger For some, the AUKEY Omnia may be a bit overkill with its charging speeds up to 65W. But that's actually really great because that means that you'll be able to charge the Galaxy S21 as fast as possible, while also fast-charging another device. RAVPower 61W PD Charger Over the last year or so, RAVPower has been redesigning many of its chargers, providing a sleeker design and making chargers a bit more useful. This 61W PD Charger has a single USB-C port with charging speeds up to 45W, along with a traditional USB-A port that can charge up to 12W. AUKEY Focus Fast Charger It's convenient to have multiple charging ports on any wall charger, and AUKEY's Focus Fast Charger fits the bill. There's a USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 port capable of providing up to 30W when used on its own, or it will ramp down to 18W if both the USB-C and USB-A ports are being used. Best Galaxy S21 Wireless Chargers Samsung Charger Trio When it comes to wireless charging, Samsung is pretty fickle as there are proprietary technologies being used to get the fastest charging possible. With the Samsung Charger Trio, you'll not only get the fastest wireless charging speeds, but you can also charge three devices at the same time, including a dedicated spot for your Galaxy Watch 3 or Watch Active 2. Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger Maybe you don't care about charging multiple devices at the same time, or maybe you just want a charging stand for your desk. The Samsung Convertible Wireless Charger will provide the fastest wireless charging speeds while featuring two charging coils so you don't have to worry about misplacing your S21 on the charger. Anker PowerWave Alloy It should come as no surprise that Anker offers one of the best wireless chargers even if it can't charge your S21 at the fastest speeds. The PowerWave Alloy offers up to 15W of charging, meeting the 10W speeds that Samsung devices are compatible with for third-party wireless chargers. CHOETECH Wireless Charger with QC 3.0 Adapter One of the biggest frustrations with wireless chargers is that your phone can slip out of place if you have notifications coming through. The CHOETECH Wireless Charger helps to combat that with a series of four non-slip pads that are on the top of the charger to keep your phone in place and charging. iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless 2 Being able to charge in the car can be really important and convenient if you are using your S21 for navigation or a phone call. The iOttie Easy One Touch Wireless 2 is one of the best car chargers and has the added benefit of providing wireless charging along with doubling as a car mount for your phone. Best Galaxy S21 Portable Chargers Samsung Portable Wireless Charger We've already covered Samsung's wireless charging pads and wall charger. But the company has a portable charger that includes a wireless charging pad built-in. The capacity comes in at 10,000mAh while providing up to 25W of wired charging or 7.5W of wireless charging speeds. RAVPower PB232 30,000mAh Charger The RAVPower PB232 is simply of one of the best portable chargers, regardless of what devices you need to charge. There is a USB-C port capable of providing up to 60W, which can charge your Galaxy S21 back up to 100% in around an hour, along with a USB-A port. Plus, this features a capacity of 30,000mAh, so you'll be able to use it for a few days before needing to recharge it. AUKEY PB-Y36 Power Bank If you don't want to carry around a bulky portable charger, then the AUKEY PB-Y36 may be the perfect choice. This 10,000mAh portable charger features LED status lights, an 18W USB-C charging port, and an additional USB-A port if you need to charge multiple devices at the same time. Anker PowerCore Slim Anker's PowerCore Slim comes in at the same 10,000mAh capacity as Anker's PB-Y36, but it comes in a different form factor to accommodate the three total charging ports. There is a USB-C port for charging the portable charger itself, along with a microUSB port and traditional USB-A port.Ever since the iPhone 12 was unveiled, Samsung has been on quite a rollercoaster when it comes to the charging bricks that we have become accustomed to receiving.

Samsung Confirms It Will Remove Chargers, Earbuds From Phone Boxes Going Forward | PCMag

The time has finally come, and it was sooner than we originally anticipated. Nevertheless, the Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup of smartphones has arrived and will be arriving on doorsteps in the next few weeks. As is the case every year, the Galaxy "S" devices are always the "flagships for everyone", while the Note launches in the Fall with power users in mind. Diving back into Samsung's history It seems there is a bit of a shift taking place in terms of Samsung's ideals on pricing, for one reason or another, which has resulted in the 2021 flagships seeing price drops compared to their predecessors. If you take a look at the pricing for Samsung's devices over the past few years, there was a clear, yet steady, rise to the top. This culminated in the Galaxy S20 Ultra's $1399 price tag last year, which was a tough pill to swallow, especially given the circumstances around the pandemic. Samsung Galaxy S9: $719 Samsung Galaxy S9+ $839 Samsung Galaxy S10e: $749 Samsung Galaxy S10: $899 Samsung Galaxy S10+: $999 Samsung Galaxy S20: $999 Samsung Galaxy S20+: $1199 Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: $1399 Fast forward to this year, and there's something more exciting about all three members of the Galaxy S21 family - lower prices. All three handsets are seeing a $200 price decrease compared to the S20 lineup, which is extremely welcome to see. Samsung Galaxy S21: $799 Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus: $999 Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra: $1199 Paying $799 for a device with few compromises (from a hardware perspective) is something that we really didn't expect to see from Samsung. Comparing the S21 to the rest of the market https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQqTgY26RpU&ab_channel=Phandroid Perhaps it had something to do with Samsung seeing the success of the Galaxy S20 FE, which introduced a near-flagship level experience at just a fraction of the price ($699). Normally, you would have to look elsewhere, like OnePlus with its 8T or even the OnePlus 8 if you wanted to get that kind of performance without emptying the piggy bank in the process. But instead, Samsung seems to be trying to put the squeeze on the likes of OnePlus, LG, and Motorola with these lower prices. Maybe another reason for the price drop is keeping in line with Apple's iPhone 12 series of devices, which did not see any price increase compared to the iPhone 11 lineup. Since Apple is Samsung's biggest competition in the smartphone market, this would make plenty of sense. Including the Galaxy S20 FE, you could say that Samsung has matched up against all of Apple's latest devices. With devices ranging from $699 and going all the way up to $1199, there's something for everyone. Galaxy S21 Galaxy S21+ Galaxy S21 Ultra $799 $999 $1199 Pixel 5 $699 OPPO Reno 4 Pro 5G $620 OPPO Find X2 Pro $1300 Nokia 8.3 5G $689 iPhone 12 Mini $699 iPhone 12 $799 iPhone 12 Pro $999 iPhone 12 Pro Max $1099 OnePlus 8 $799 OnePlus 8T $749 OnePlus 8 Pro $799 $999 Sony Xperia 5 II $949 Samsung Galaxy S20 FE $699 Samsung Galaxy Note 20 $999 Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra $1299 Huawei Mate 40 Pro ~$1085 Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ ~$1600 What's the catch? If you were to compare the Galaxy S21 devices to the Galaxy S20 lineup, there are a few key differences which could help explain the lower prices. Well, at least for the S21 and S21 Plus. Those devices are featuring just 8GB of RAM (which should be plenty for most), but the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus featured 12GB of RAM. That alone will help Samsung cut some of the corners it needed to in order to hit these prices. Another reason for lower prices in the S21 comes courtesy of Qualcomm and the Snapdragon 888. Instead of needing to account for a separate 5G modem to be built-into the phone, the SD888 has a 5G modem onboard and is compatible with both Sub-6GHz and Verizon's mmWave. So you'll get the latest processor, complete with 5G connectivity, while saving some dough. Plus, the cost of the components themselves is lower this year compared to 2020, which helps Samsung's bottom line and the company actually passed some of those savings onto the market. Best Galaxy S21 Chargers The final way, that we can tell, how Samsung was able to justify these lower prices has everything to do with Apple. When the iPhone 12 lineup was announced, Apple confirmed that it would no longer be including the (comically underpowered) 5W charging brick in the box. This decision led to slimmer packaging, which again, helps companies like Apple and Samsung meet their bottom line easier. However, the problem here is that while Samsung went the same route as Apple, the decision is a rather frustrating one. Unlike Apple, Samsung's included charger was actually quite capable of fast-charging the phones that it came with. So now when you get your new Galaxy S21, you'll need to also pick up a compatible 25W charger to get the fastest wired speeds possible. Conclusion Ignoring the awkward-looking camera notch, Samsung seems to have made all of the right moves for its 2021 flagship lineup. The prices for all three devices have come down, while making little sacrifices where it counts. Plus, even with including S Pen support and the highest specs possible in the S21 Ultra, you can still get this for $200 less than last year's model. If Samsung continues this trend and sticks with lower prices for future flagships, it could be the shift in the smartphone market that we sorely need. And hopefully, this will force other OEM's to take notice and start shamelessly copying Samsung's strategy, instead of just raising prices for the sake of raising prices.The time has finally come, and it was sooner than we originally anticipated.

The Samsung Galaxy S21, Google Pixel 4 and more are on sale today

For the next few months, there are gonna be a lot of questions about whether you should opt for Samsung's spin on Android, or if you should go with Stock Android. That's comparison is going to be even further magnified with the Samsung Galaxy S21, which is launching with One UI 3.1, based on Android 11. Meanwhile, of course, the Pixel 5 is Google's flagship device until the Fall of 2021, which launched with Android 11 back in October. There are some similarities between these two devices, as the Galaxy S21 measures in at 6.2-inches, slightly edging out the 6-inch display of the Pixel 5. Both of these feature 8GB of RAM and have a base storage of 128GB, along with display resolutions of 2400 x 1080. The differences begin to shift from there, as the S21 may have lower pixel density but has the added benefit of Samsung's 120Hz dynamic refresh rate. On the other hand, Google's Pixel 5 features a 90Hz refresh rate, which should be fine for most people, but it's not the best available. Pixel 5 & Pixel 4a 5G review: not your usual upgrade Speaking of best available, that's where the processor comes into play, as the Galaxy S21 is powered by the Snapdragon 888. This provides faster speeds and is more power-efficient compared to the Snapdragon 765G found in Pixel 5. The Galaxy S21 gets another nod thanks to the triple-camera array, although we'll have to wait to see how it stacks up to Google, which has had vastly superior image processing compared to other handsets for the last couple of years. If you're concerned about the price, you'll want to go ahead and grab the Pixel 5, as it's priced at just $699, $100 cheaper than the S21. Something to consider, however, is that Samsung is offering some pretty great trade-in deals for those who want to pick up the Galaxy S21 so you can knock a little bit off of the retail price of $799. Nevertheless, these are two worthy competitors for those who want a smaller Android smartphone and don't necessarily need all of the latest and greatest features packed into a phone.

That's comparison is going to be even further magnified with the Samsung Galaxy S21, which is launching with One UI 3.1, based on Android 11. Meanwhile, of course, the Pixel 5 is Google's flagship device until the Fall of 2021, which launched with Android 11 back in October. There are some similarities between these two devices, as the Galaxy S21 measures in at 6.2-inches, slightly edging out the 6-inch display of the Pixel 5. Both of these feature 8GB of RAM and have a base storage of 128GB, along with display resolutions of 2400 x 1080. The differences begin to shift from there, as the S21 may have lower pixel density but has the added benefit of Samsung's 120Hz dynamic refresh rate. On the other hand, Google's Pixel 5 features a 90Hz refresh rate, which should be fine for most people, but it's not the best available.
