We heard a lot of news that the S21 had been nerfed before the launch. So I think the S21 design is worse than the S20. In addition, the S21 has a 10% reduction in camera quality compared to the S20. If it were me, I would go with the S20.

Pros

  • Performance
  • Battery
  • Lots of camera modes

Cons

  • Camera
  • design

Me toco un movil con defecto de fábrica ( mal funcionamiento del software). Lo hemos llevado al taller porque tiene garantía y solo le hicieron una restauración a niveles de fábrica pero sigue funcionando mal, se apaga continuamente y nadie se hace cargo, esto a 1 mes de la compra. Ahora me toca comermelo con patatas. Para mi el peor movil del mercado. Mas de 800€ y 2 años de garantía y aqui lo tengo hecho una mierda.

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has built-in optical image stabilization
Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus
Xiaomi Mi 11
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.video recording (main camera)

4320 x 24fps

4320 x 30fps
