What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.
This device has 8GB RAM.
Dynamic AMOLED display
The Samsung Galaxy S21 5G houses a Dynamic AMOLED, Infinity-O, adaptive display. The phone's refresh rate adjusts between 48-120Hz based on the content you're viewing, to help save battery life. Helpfully, the S215G significantly reduce eye-strain and fatigue, so you can binge your favourite shows comfortably morning, noon and night.
Thanks to an Infinity O display, the Galaxy S21 provides an edge-to-edge screen experience, without the requirement of a large, space-stealing notch. Always-On technology provides you with handy on-screen notifications – while saving you power.
The Knox security platform provides a high level of security – protecting your phone from the chip up and giving you more confidence in your data and app permissions. It also features Samsung Knox Vault to keep your biometric authentication data under wraps.
Enhanced Game Booster
The S21 5G's Game Booster's new Priority Mode ensures you stay focused on your game by helpfully blocking calls and notifications, whilst maximising your phone's performance. Optimised for Unity Engine, AI monitors your device usage and automatically adjusts your settings to provide the best experience — regulating temperature, battery and memory while you play.

What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked mobile, so there's no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use in the device. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that's contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
