The Verge, an IT news site that actually tried the Galaxy S21 FE 5G, said, 'The S21 FE feels like a device on the border between flagship and midrange. The back is a matte-finished composite plastic mid. It has a range-like texture, but the large, bright and smooth screen is definitely a flagship area.
