Samsung A41 vs A21s format

Samsung A41: compact and clear 6.1-inch Full HD screen

With a 6.1-inch screen, the Samsung Galaxy A41 is one of the few current smartphones that's manageable. This means you can operate the screen with one hand. The device is suitable to watch your favorite movies and series on. You see a lot detail on the Full HD screen. On top of that, you enjoy deeper colors than on the Samsung A21s, thanks to the energy-efficient AMOLED screen. This makes images look dynamic. Are you looking for a comparable smartphone with a larger screen? Have a look at the Samsung A51.

Samsung A21s or A41 screen

Samsung A21s: large and duller 6.5-inch HD screen

The 6.5-inch screen of the Samsung Galaxy A21s is very large. This makes it hard to operate the smartphone with one hand and the device doesn't fit in all pockets. The display has an HD resolution. This isn't very sharp, so the A21s isn't suitable if you like to watch movies. The A21s also has a TFT screen. With this technology, the colors are quite a bit duller than on the AMOLED screen of the A41. On the other hand, TFT screens are less sensitive to reflections, so they're more readable in the sun.


Samsung A41 vs Samsung A21s camera

Samsung A41: standard camera quality with image stabilization

The 48-megapixel standard camera of the Samsung A41 has electronic image stabilization. The device corrects small movements with this, so your photos won't be blurry, so they'll be more clear. Use the 8-megapixel wide-angle lens to capture large buildings in their entirety. The photos you take with the A41 are fine to share with friends and family via WhatsApp. But when you print these photos, they won't be very sharp.

Samsung A21s: no image stabilization, but a macro lens

The 48-megapixel standard lens of the Samsung A21s doesn't have image stabilization. Because of this, small movements you make when you take a picture will result in slightly less detailed photos. Other than that, the photo quality is comparable to that of the A41. The 8-megapixel wide-angle lens and depth sensor are exactly the same. But the A21s does have an extra camera with the macro lens. With this camera, you can take pictures from up very close. This is useful when you're taking a picture of a flower or insect.


Samsung A41 or Samsung A21s processing power

Samsung A41: suitable for basic tasks, 3500mAh battery

With its Mediatek MT6768 processor and 4GB RAM, the Samsung A41 is mainly suitable for basic tasks. Using WhatsApp, browsing the internet, and basic games such as Wordfeud are fine on this device. But it can take a couple of seconds before the A41 starts up slightly more demanding apps such as YouTube or Netflix. You can expand the 64GB storage capacity with a memory card if you want. The small 3500mAh battery won't always make it to the end of the day. Fortunately, charging does go fast with the included Samsung Adaptive Fast Charge charger.

Samsung A21s vs Samsung A41 battery speed

Samsung A21s: just as powerful, better 5000mAh battery

The Samsung Exynos 850 processor of the A21s is slightly more powerful than that of the A41, but the difference is negligible. If you choose the version with 64GB storage, the device has 4GB RAM. This is about as powerful as the A41. The 32GB version has little space for your apps and photos and is also less powerful with 3GB RAM. The device has a 5000mAh battery, which is enough to last the whole day without charging with Adaptive Fast Charge.


Both devices are very similar in terms of camera quality and speed. Which device suits you best depends on what's important to you in a smartphone. The screen of the Samsung A41s is two classes better. Thanks to the high resolution and deeper colors, you can enjoy your favorite series and your Instagram timeline more. This smartphone is also much more manageable. But the A21s has a 1.5x larger battery which easily lasts 1.5 day.
