It's a decent deal. If you don't need the voucher + charger...some seller offered lower price. I bought my S21FE around RM 2,500+ plain box set.

With this budget, plenty of other phones to choose from. Its what you need & want. Eg. I make calls with the phone, so the virtual proximity bother me..I don't like curved display as well. I also don't like over 200g phone. I narrowed my selection from there.

I mainly buy flagship phones 1 or 2 years after launch. I bought my current Note 9 after Note 10 was launched, saved around 1k, and the phone is still running smoothly.

My usage is pretty normal. I don't play games much, and mainly used the phone for call, messages, watching videos on YouTube and Netflix. I do want better camera because I only use phone camera whenever I travel.

I am considering Note 20 too but scared of its performance since I read about E990

Exynos 2100 is fine. I wouldn't consider Exynos 990.

Since you value camera performance, S21 series would be a good buy. S22 which cost you a bomb is cutting edge. The S21FE is only for you if you can accept it's water down camera. Else, take a look at Oneplus 10 or Mi 12 Ultra and see if it's your cup of tea.

I choose S21FE...flat screen. light weight , 6.4 is decent, camera is above average. Was with Huawei Mate 20 before this.

Been watching comparison videos between S21U, Oneplus 9 & Mi11U. For camera, S21U & Mi11U are neck to neck. Only downside to Mi11U, I can't find global set on LZD, and S21U is just too expensive. Probably need to wait longer for price to come down or go for S21 or S21FE.

If Samsung ecosystem matter to you. Then Samsung it is. The S21 & S21FE biggest different is the telephoto lens. If your photography rarely utilise zoom/ more than 3x zoom, then the advantages become irrelevant.

Low light condition is another. Unless you take photo in really dark scenario, else this advantage become less important as well. When reviewer say not that good...it doesn't mean bad.

Check out more review to see if the photo taken by S21FE meet your expectation. I remember one reviewer say S21FE photo is just as good as the S21...unless you are really nitpicking.

But then again I'm no photo expert. I didn't really know if those differences matter for a photo guy.

S21 series are out of production (except S21FE). If you wait longer...you probably won't get new set.

Hope the above helps.

Hey guys. How else can I check the warranty on a used S21 Ultra without receipt? The warranty period not appearing on Samsung Members and I am not getting any reply by sending SMS to 62002.

If you don't get a response via SMS, you can live chat or call SME for verification.

Even if it's under warranty, make sure it's not a Telco set to avoid disappointment later.
