Want to treat yourself to a new Samsung smartphone? The choice is not lacking! Whatever your needs or your budget, there will always be a model from the Korean manufacturer that will match. It remains to be seen which one to choose. And on this point, you can use this guide to draw ideas. It presents our selection of the best Samsung smartphones of the moment.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
Of course, it is impossible not to mention the new standard-bearer of the South Korean firm. Announced last January, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is the most premium version of the S21 range. Unsurprisingly, Samsung has concentrated all its latest innovations there.
On display, the Galaxy S21 Ultra has a beautiful and large 6.8-inch screen. Naturally, the panel benefits from Super AMOLED technology. But in addition, it comes this time around with an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and even higher brightness. Everything you need to make gamers happy.
Under the hood is also hidden the Exynos 2100 processor. Engraved in 5 nm, it combines performance and autonomy. On the side of smartphones running Android, there is no chip that does better at the moment in terms of power. And to accompany this power, Samsung has coupled it with 12 or 16 GB of RAM. Everything is then powered by a 5000 mAh battery, which supports wireless charging, fast charging and reverse charging. However, we regret the fact that the charger is no longer delivered with the smartphone.
Finally, the photographic aspect is not left out either. With all the technologies it embeds, the Galaxy S21 Ultra easily slips into the list of the best cameras of the moment. The 4 sensors that Samsung has aligned at the back (including a wide angle of 108 Mpx) demonstrate versatility and promise pretty shots.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
The Z Fold wanted to revolutionize the world of smartphones. However, this first Samsung model did not really convince with its few flaws, especially at the level of the screen and the hinge. The Korean giant thus returns to the charge with a second generation of its foldable smartphone, much more successful and free of its old flaws.
Folded, the Z Fold 2 displays a 6.2-inch screen. Once unfolded, we get a tablet with a 7.6-inch slab. Both screens benefit from Super AMOLED technology and a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which ensures a smoother and more pleasant use.
The device is also more efficient and includes the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ processor. It is here coupled with 12 GB of RAM. A 4500 mAh battery is also responsible for powering the device. It may seem insufficient given the size of the Z Fold 2 screen. But Samsung is making up for it by offering 25W wired fast charging, in addition to 11W wireless charging and reverse charging.
Finally, on the photographic level, the new foldable smartphone from Samsung improves by offering a triplede 12 + 12 + 12 Mpx.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
For the Seoul firm, it is without a doubt the best smartphone of 2020. But even in 2021, it is still one of the best of the brand. Why ?
First, because the phone benefits from a sublime glass design which makes it particularly attractive. But also, it brings together the best technologies of the brand: a 6.9-inch Super AMOLED screen refreshed at 120 Hz, an Exynos 990 SoC coupled with 12 GB of RAM, a versatile triple sensor of 108 + 12 + 12 Mpx, a 5G connectivity, up to 512 GB of internal memory…
The only flaw of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra may lie in its battery. It is a bit limited given the size of the device: only 4500 mAh. However, this ensures comfortable use of the smartphone, although we would have liked to have more.
Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G
Still in the high-end segment, the Galaxy S20 FE also presents itself as an excellent choice for a premium Samsung smartphone in 2021. Launched in late 2020, the phone shares the same characteristics as the Galaxy S20 5G, except for the photo part. and the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE indeed integrates a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED and Full HD + screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, supported by 6 or 8 GB of RAM. The device also offers up to 256 GB of internal storage and enjoys a fairly good autonomy thanks to its 4500 mAh battery.
The photographic component is also provided by a triple photo sensor of 12 + 8 + 12 Mpx.
Samsung Galaxy A52 5G
Your budget does not allow you to buy a high-end model? For less than 400 euros, you can dig up this nugget.
Positioning itself on the mid-range, the Galaxy A52 5G seduces above all for its 5G connectivity and its 6.5-inch super AMOLED screen refreshed at 120 Hz. But it still has many qualities that have earned it a place in the present classification.
Indeed, the Samsung Galaxy embeds the powerful Snapdragon 750G processor from Qualcomm, which is here supported by 6 or 8 GB of RAM. The phone also comes in two different models following the storage capacity: 128 and 256 GB.
The photo part is also interesting with in particular 4 photo sensors on the back, including a wide-angle of 64 Mpx, an ultra-wide-angle of 12 Mpx, a depth sensor of 5 Mpx and a macro lens also. 5 Mpx.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G is equipped with a 4500 mAh battery, guaranteeing it a rather satisfactory autonomy.
