Purchasing a new phone is usually a budget-driven decision. Luckily, Samsung has a huge variety of devices, with new models coming out all the time. Here’s a list of the best Samsung phones of 2021, with prices ranging from $600 to $1300.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE has all the best features of the S20, but at a more reasonable price. This phone has a 6.5-inch OLED display with the super-fast 120Hz refresh rate. While the 8MP telephoto lens isn’t as crisp as the 64MP lens, the Space Zoom feature will still impress you. This is an excellent phone for those who want premium features without the price tag.

If you want a S21 phone for less than $1,000 try the Galaxy S21. This phone features three core lenses, including a telephoto and an ultra-wide. With a 6.2-inch screen, this phone is perfect for those who don’t want a massive phone. Moreover, it offers a dynamic refresh rate based on the task at hand.
