This $200 discount on the Galaxy S21 FE makes the phone definitely worth buying

When we reviewed the Galaxy S21 FE last month, we praised it for the quality of its display, cameras, battery life, and performance, but noted that its price of $700 launch was asking way too much for what it offered. But take those same specs and offer them for just $500? It’s a genuine steal and not overdone, especially in the month following its release.

Right now, Best Buy is offering the Galaxy S21 FE for $200 off if you activate the phone today. It’s $500 for the 128GB model or $570 for the 256GB model. It’s available in Graphite, Navy, Olive, Lavender, and White, unlocked or with Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE | $200 off

The S21 FE is, essentially, an S21 in everything but name, offering the same performance and cameras but with Android 12 and an extra year of out-of-the-box software support. At $500, it’s worth seriously considering the Galaxy S22 launching this month for nearly a grand.

  • $500 at Best Buy (128GB)

  • $570 at Best Buy (256GB)

For $500 you get a 6.4-inch, 2340 x 1080 resolution display with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz input refresh rate, Snapdragon 888 chipset, 6GB of RAM, a 4500 mAh battery, IP68 water resistance and a ready-to-use 4 user interface. With scheduled One UI 7 updates and security updates through January 2026, you will get a lot out of this phone.

Of course, Samsung is likely executing this deal to eliminate inventory before the Galaxy S22 arrives. But all rumors point to the new S22 being $800 or $900, which means you’ll save up to $400 for a phone that gets the same amount of software support and still has 2021 flagship-grade specs. .
