I gotta say. I love the relationship between LTT and Dbrand. I'm broken in that when I see too many advertisements for a company I'll refuse to ever buy stuff from them. Dbrand has managed to avoid that impulse in me. Good job!

@Michael Yang the cameras are completely different they are a more bright and contrasty look on the pixels and on the iPhone it is more natural and trying to replicate a dlsr the only category where the pixels are remotely similar are in the concept of perfect integration with the os but that is a generic idea that isn't unique to iPhone

I have the S20 FE and I love it. I got the 256gb model, so I have 8gb RAM. My main reason for getting it was the expansion slot. It is both dual sim and SD card capable. I use an SD card as a backup of important stuff(4k vids take more space than I have in the cloud). I hope they don't nerf this one too much. They did just right with the S20 FE. Also, how hypocritical of Dbrand to not support the S21 FE. I have a skin for my S20 FE from Dbrand. The black dragon skin, and it looks really nice.

@Jacopo Piscina The thing about the headphone jack is that it can be replaced. Just use a usb-c to 3.5mm adapter if you REALLY want to use wired headphones. The SD card doesn't really have an alternative for the physical phone. A flash drive isn't as reasonable as a 3-inch extension to the cable you already use. It's only posh or illogically lazy people who complain about this; the person who says, "ugh, using an extra part to get the functionality I want? That's just dumb. Just make it do everything all at once for me."

@TheFourthWinchester And why do you think everyone wants to have them ? People even buy out the old used ones just so they can have an iPhone. When you buy a case for that phone it is the only brand that has a hole on the back just to show the logo. I know that there are other tempting reasons to buy something Apple but it is undeniable that the brand is a very strong factor and its well recognised. Many people want to seem richer or like someone better because they own an iPhone.

The S21 FE comes with a Snapdragon here in Europe. That's enough of a reason to pick it over the regular S21 or even the S22, depending on how the Exynos will do. Ps.: Even when the Exynos is fast, the Snapdragon will usually run smoother in games and other tasks, and the camera encoder is usually better too.

@FastSloth87 yeah, but so is the 2100, and the camera DSP is worse. And like I said, due to software drivers and whatnot, most Snapdragon SoCs will end up running apps smoother than their Exynos counterparts. Many YouTubers have demonstrated that, in games, for example, while the frame rate might be similar, the Exynos variants often load games slower and have some unpleasant stuttering in-game.

It's weird that I never buy anything from dbrand but I like their whole schtick. The leather skins single-handedly made me want to get a Pixel 6 that much more, but I can't justify it, especially since the UK version doesn't have the 256GB version, and the recent bugs found turned me off. But when I do finally upgrade from this Note 9, I'll likely get a dbrand skin instead of a case.

Actually, its comes down to ergonomics, given the Samsung Dex options, you can now have a 6gb ram Desktop Experience. Google Pixel's can't take advantage of Desktop Mode at all, as Google has disabled it out of the box. There is no desktop mode on any Pixel devices. Given this, it would seem wise on Samsung to launch a more affordable line with decent specs so that new users can experience this while takin advantage of those features instead of getting a laptop and avoid to purchase an older Samsung S model. NOTE: Huawei saw this need since the creation of Mate 10 Pro, Xiaomi Phones now have access to MiUi Desktop and currently, The new Motorola Moto Edge X30 is a powerfull rival for Samsung Dex with their version of Desktop Mode called Ready4. Considering the markets new behaviors and tendencies, many new customer will attempt to make these phones their main device. Hope you guys do another videos with that in mind.

As someone who works for a telecommunications company, I’m actually surprised that you get your phones in the same packaging as we get our demo phones. It’s a constant pain for archiving because we don’t often display all of the phones that we have on offer and as such need to refer to our demo models that we keep in the back for demonstration. It’s a constant annoyance that Samsung (and other companies) often, but not always, send us demos in pretty much unmarked boxes, causing you us to have to sift though multiple white boxes to find the appropriate demos. Also, while I’m at it, Samsung please stop listing your IMEI barcodes on the middle of all the other barcodes, they’re a pain in the ass to scan

The fan edition devices are actually pretty solid. I think the cheaper form of the phone is good for people like me who may be feeling burnout. It's to the point that we don't really treat a smartphone as a phone and people get mad when you leave a voicemail. So you can tell it's not really about the phone anymore. The way I see it is all devices are going to age the same and companies are releasing new devices quicker and quicker and to me I feel like there's less incentive of getting a flagship. I feel like the premium devices are really for people who are in business or school. I feel like if I go after the next shiniest thing then I feel like I'm setting myself up for failure. People have told me that they get a new phone because the battery gets old despite they could technically get a new battery put in. So that means it's no longer about the battery. There's nothing wrong getting something new if you're going to benefit from it but at the same time I ask myself why. I feel like smartphones are under the same rule of shoes. It doesn't matter how much you pay for shoes because you still have to replace them every 6 months if you want good support for your feet. I hope Samsung keeps The fan edition going and all devices because once in a while it's actually nice to be conservative for once.

Samsung is struggling to clear out previous s21 stock, as it was a flop at launch. They didn't want to compete with the full feature phone as the price is almost the same, but for a inferior product that has a better chip(international market got the s21 with a exenos chip that is a turd)

I had been waiting for this particular phone but after it was "cancelled" in October/September I decided to buy A52s. I am glad I did buy it. 21FE is too expensive

When the S22 ultra launches in the U.K. they will ship it with the Exynos 2200 …. In the past Exynos chips haven’t performed well compared to their snapdragon counterparts though hopefully things will be different this time 🐖✈️

I got the pixel 6 over the s21 fe. The fe is more expensive and I prefer the software experience google offers. The voice texting experience on the pixel is legendary

Samsung has had their version of magic eraser for 3 or 4 years. It's called object eraser! The Google phones were not the first to do this and it works really good on the Samsung phones!!

I've just got my S21 Fe. I'm paying £30 a month which is cheaper than my contract with my old phone which was the S10 lite. Yes it's £740 in total but I can swap it after 2 years. That's what I did and the amount to be on the other phone was scrapped

This came out the minute I had just upgraded my phone to the S21 FE from TMobile. Will be here in a few days. I had been rocking a S7 for over 4 years now and the battery is starting to go. Honestly almost went with a Pixel 6 because it was cheaper but I am a Samsung guy so I went with the FE version of the S21. Not super big on camera features as I am for speed and memory size. Guessing I could have gone for any real newer phone but I guess I may be future proofing myself a bit by getting a 21FE so I think I'll ne happy with my purchase

Samsung also has their own bloatware installed on the phone, also the google bloatware you have on the pixel 6 and also microsoft bloatware, idk if it still comes with facebook preinstalled. And don't forget about *McAfee* Security.

Though the review is relatively accurate and fair, to a budget friendly phone positioned in the high end segment, and the information presented is true, i give you that credit, i believe the video was lame, non-professional made and the presenter was clearly out of his place.

I will say this video made me less harsh on the FE. Yet to watch a video from these big channels yet just take a chill stance on it and compare them. I will say for some categories maybe sometimes the $100 may be worth it for the FE. Especially if you like selfies

3:03 "budget friendly" and "it's got a 120hz display, those were on the flagships a few years ago".......don't forget, the flagship phones just a mere 5 years ago were topping out at what this "budget friendly" phone is being sold for. It's all a total scam, pretty much the same thing as what Nvidia and AMD are doing with their GPUs.

It seems that the S8 and S9 era might be the last perfect spot in phones. While there are features that would make me want to upgrade, everything I buy, I buy used. Even the used market for older phones has gone up so much that it's hard to justify the cost.

@현성은  S8+ user here, so not the exact same use case. For me the phone still performs perfectly, and I've had it since Feb 2018. The battery HAS begun draining a little faster than I would like, but I haven't been able to determine if the problem is the age of the battery or background power use that I haven't been able to track down yet. I've had to use this phone hours a day for work and Recreation since the day I got it and it's still going strong. No burn in etc.

Was really annoyed when I got my S21 and realised it did not have a SD card slot for the large SD card I had purchased. Prefer to use SD card for my music and large quality video as it takes up a lot of space. Yeah I can use spotify but no good if you end up somewhere with low or no signal. Also load up films on there too.

Holy cow Riley is just on a roll with this XD roasting Google, roasting Samsung, even roasting the sponsor! I love it though, I really appreciate the ability to just be brutally honest about the stuff that's shitty because it makes the beneficial and good points of these devices actually mean something, like who else would be giving some credit to Google's software ideas in a video on a Samsung phone and then turning around and saying Google marketed a new fancy proprietary hardware chip to run that software for nothing since it works just about as well on normal chips Also "something made from a dead animal" made me spit take my coffee

I have the S20FE, got it in November 2020, I've liked it so far. Though I did have a decently hard time finding a case, so thanks for nothing, DBrand. (DBrand, I love ya, that was a joke. Never change your trolly self)

@Terrobility This case is apparently a Caseology Parallax (Yes, I've forgotten since then so I had to open the case up). I think my mom went with the Spigen. I'm slightly annoyed that Otterbox appears to have come out with their model after I was looking, but this case has been good to me and I know they're not the only company out there.

@Jacopo Piscina I found a case back when I got the phone, just a more annoying process to do so while avoiding Amazon. Even when I realized Amazon was unavoidable, it was still harder than I was hoping. Considering the small market share of the S20FE and future FE's I get the lack of cases, but really the middle phone (S20 non-FE, non-+) should be back to $649 because the pricing then was dumb and that would solve the market share/lack of cases issue.

​@Dane Roschen sorry, but I would then recommend Amazon for cases, dbrand probably don't think they can sell a case for 45$ (+20$ for the tempered glass) if it isn't for a flagship phone. Spigen cases are great and cost 10-15$, I got one for my s10+ in 2018, I still use it and the phone is perfect :)
