Galaxy S

Both phones feature hole punch selfie cameras, but the Galaxy S21 places it centrally, while the Galaxy S10 shifts it over to the right. The Galaxy S10 5G, meanwhile, expands the camera module itself to a lozenge shape, which is more intrusive.

In terms of size, the Galaxy S10 comes in two configurations: 149.9 x 70.4 x 7.8mm for the 4G model and 162.6 x 77.1 x 7.9 mm for the Galaxy S10 5G. The Galaxy S21 splits the difference at 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm, but sits far closer to the dimensions of the Galaxy S10 4G. That’s the case when it comes to weight too, with the Galaxy S10 at 157g, the Galaxy S10 5G at a meaty 198g, and the Galaxy S21 at 169g.

One notable omission from the Galaxy S21 compared to the S10 (and S20) models is the Bixby button. We don’t lament its passing, in truth. Samsung’s personal assistant has always felt rather superfluous, and so did having a dedicated button for it.
