5 Best Samsung Galaxy S21 alternatives you should buy


Samsung’s Galaxy S21 was recently released and it is one hell of a phone in terms of performance and design. But the question is, is it necessarily the best phone out there? The term “best” can be subjective as some people are seeking other things from their phones besides raw power.

Some might be looking for a phone that has a better battery life, some want a phone that’s cheaper, some want a phone that’s more geared towards gaming, some prefer a rugged device, and so on.

To that end, we’ve put together five of the best Samsung Galaxy S21 alternatives that you should buy and hopefully you’ll be able to find a phone that better suits your needs.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 packs some impressive hardware when it comes to photography and there’s no doubt about that, but if you’re not a fan of Samsung, One UI, or maybe you’re looking to have a new experience, then maybe the iPhone 12 Pro Max could be worth looking into.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is Apple’s latest smartphone and based on reviews and tests (which we conducted ourselves), we found that both phones performed nearly on par with each other. Note that the tests involved the more expensive Galaxy S21 Ultra which uses different sensors than the Galaxy S21, so we imagine that the differences between the Galaxy S21 and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be even more significant.
