Despite their very young age, undeniably attractive designs, and arguably impressive specifications, the three members of Samsung's latest high-end Galaxy S-series handset family have already received an unusually high number of compelling discounts.
While that might mean the Galaxy S21 5G trio is not doing as well in the US as its manufacturers had hoped (and early reports from other markets seemed to suggest), you probably shouldn't think twice about purchasing one of these powerhouse right now if you can afford them.
Marked down by a cool $100 on two different occasions in the last couple of weeks with absolutely no strings attached, the 6.2-inch Galaxy S21 model is currently on sale for as little as $649.99 at Best Buy. That's also for an unlocked variant requiring no jumping through hoops whatsoever, with the retailer capable of shaving an additional 50 bucks off the phone's $799.99 list price if you're willing to commit to Verizon or AT&T upfront.
650 bucks, mind you, represents a pretty massive $150 discount free of carrier obligations for an already affordable device with 128 gigs of internal storage space, state-of-the-art Snapdragon 888 processing power, a hefty 8GB RAM count, 120Hz refresh rate support for the aforementioned 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, 4,000mAh battery capacity, and a triple rear-facing camera system composed of two 12MP shooters and a 64MP telephoto lens.
The same 5G-enabled smartphone is on sale at an identical $150 markdown in a 256GB storage configuration with no strings attached, while the jumbo-sized Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra can be purchased starting at $800 and $1,000 respectively instead of their $1,000 and $1,200 regular prices in unlocked 128 gig models.
In case you're wondering, no one can match Best Buy's $650 Galaxy S20 5G charge at the time of this writing (without certain requirements, at least), although Amazon comes pretty darn close to that number after slashing $125 off the $800 MSRP of the plastic-backed 6.2-incher with no charger or earphones in the box.
