Good midrange phone. FYI, A52s just got released with higher CPU & everything else pretty much same.

Does that mean it'll span across 4 Android OS versions (Current + 1 + 1 + 1)?

I think so, Galaxy A5x and up are supposed to get up to 3 updates.
Galaxy A4x and below are only 2 updates.
I believe all Samsung phones get 4 years of security updates. (with lower frequency of updates over time.)
IMO, that's better than OnePlus, Motorola, and TCL on their low-mid range devices.

I know it doesn't apply to everyone's situation, and it's dependent on your phone plan. But I just got a Galaxy S21 on Fido for 30 a month for 2 years with a $400 Walmart gift card.

30 x 24 = (720 + 13%) - $400 = $413.60

Vs

529 + tax


For that price I'd rather be locked into my plan for the time. But that's just me.

Samsung phones being sold in Canada are way behind than in other countries. You can get 8GB RAM phones if you buy anywhere outside Canada, even in the USA and for at least $100 less. I wouldn't recommend buying unless you're desperate.

Seems like another case of Canadian society being content to get kicked around by manufacturers when it comes to features and value. With many other countries getting better specs for less even with exchange.

Also keep in mind with the A51 Samsung starting doing what Apple is famous for. They apparently have began locking out certain features if you DIY repair the phone even with genuine Samsung parts. So it it starting to look like you will have to pay to have it fixed at an authorized repair shop to retain all of the phones capabilities.

I was going to upgrade my A50 to A52 during the soon to be here BF sales but now not so sure, if we are only getting a stripped down version and there is no path to right to repair myself.
