The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was one of the extra widespread flagship gadgets launched final yr, and for good purpose. It managed to ship loads of bang for the buck whereas nonetheless delivering premium options like a telephoto digicam, water resistance, and wi-fi charging.

All eyes are on the Galaxy S21 FE persevering with this reasonably priced flagship development for Samsung, and a new rumor factors to the cellphone being even cheaper than its predecessor. A cheaper price ticket is normally accompanied by a compromise or two, in order that bought us pondering what you’d give up for a cheaper S21 FE.

Which feature would you forego for a cheaper Galaxy S21 FE?


We posted the ballot on Monday, June 7, with over 2,300 votes counted as of writing. And the outcomes present that just about 40% of respondents are keen to give up wi-fi charging in change for a cheaper Galaxy S21 FE. This was the one greatest alternative within the ballot, however we hope Samsung affords sooner wired charging if it ever ditches wi-fi charging.

The in-box charger and equipment was the second hottest feature to be dropped, with 14.4% of polled readers saying they’d ditch these goodies if it meant a cheaper value. This was adopted carefully by 5G (14.1%), which is comprehensible when the S20 FE had a 4G variant whereas sub-6GHz 5G isn’t a game-changing enchancment over LTE.

Cheaper/much less versatile cameras (12%), water resistance (10%), the newest and biggest flagship SoC (8%), and “other” (2%) rounded out the outcomes.


  • Wongwatt: I’d fortunately give up all of Samsung’s supposed worth including firmware tweaks and use Android One. Because I hate Samsung bloat.
  • stolnheartdealr: Cameras are quantity one on the checklist of significance, SoC subsequent and water resistance. EVERYTHING ELSE on the checklist can get the ax so far as I’m involved.
  • Hussain Almubarak: Why cease at simply cease at ONE feature? I’d be keen to give up 5G – Because it isn’t obtainable right here in NZ in most areas, water resistance as a result of I’m not going to dip my cellphone in water, ceramic or glass again as a result of the day I get my cellphone it’s going to go in a case and no one will know the distinction if it had plastic or ceramic physique, wi-fi charging as a result of on the finish of the day I’ll nonetheless have to put the cellphone on a charger, why not simply plug it in then? I don’t thoughts if I don’t get the newest SoC as a result of I’m not going to make use of the cellphone to play video games that require a discrete video card (just a few Candy Crush).
  • tarfin: For me I’d give up the excessive finish digicam. The one in my A71 5G does very nicely and if I wanted extra skilled choices a DSLR would make extra sense.
