Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Comparison

S21 Plus vs S21 Ultra

Several points differentiate these two high-end smartphones from the reputable Samsung brand. The Samsung S21 Ultra is compatible with the S Pen, making it easier to work or draw on the screen. There are also other features that allow you to compare and contrast them.

Samsung S21 Plus, a smartphone suitable for all uses

Although its design is similar to that of its competitor, the Samsung S21 Plus differs in its format. It is slightly smaller and has a 6.7 inch screen compared to the 6.8 inch screen of the S21 Ultra. It is also 27 grams lighter, weighing only 200 grams compared to 227 grams for the S21 Ultra. The differences are more obvious when it comes to RAM and storage capacity. The S21 Plus is only available with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage capacity. The Samsung S21 Ultra on the otherhand offers slightly more in this department, with versions available with either 12 and 16 GB of RAM for 128, 256 and 512 GB of storage. An important feature to consider since micro SD cards cannot be added to these models.

Samsung S21 Ultra, maximum performance

Even though both devices are equipped with an AMOLED panel, the S21 Ultra gains in quality with a QHD+ screen where the S21 Plus is content with only full HD+. This model is therefore aimed at users who are demanding and/or frequently using their smartphone for gaming or video content. It is also compatible with 45W fast charging as well as the S Pen, which is not the case with the Samsung S21 Plus. When it comes to photography, their performance is almost identical.

Do you need to store a lot of photos or content on your smartphone? The S21 Ultra's large storage capacity will suit you best. It is also suitable for those that require fast-charging or prefer to use a stylus. For more traditional use, the performance and functionality of the S21 Plus is more than sufficient.
