Samsung Galaxy S21 FE best bargain flagship v1

Young professionals who have just started their careers aren’t exactly flush with cash and in the new normal, professionals absolutely require a smartphone that can keep up with reliable performance and good battery life.

Good phones don’t come cheap though. Just owning a good flagship smartphone requires us to carve out a huge chunk of our paycheck and that’s not even counting what we need to spend  on rent, food, food for the furkids, that car and that credit card after all. 

In the new normal with video calls for work and socialising afterwards, we all need better front and rear cameras and the battery life to continue even three hours into a video call meeting. After work, those great camera are needed for the traditional foodie shots, selfies and scenery shots too; after all, it’s a bit hard to flex if your holiday shots look like outtakes from a horror movie.

Rather than skimping on a cheap phone that barely does the job and needs replacing every year, it just makes sense to invest in a better quality flagship phone that will last.
