Introducing the Future
The new Samsung Galaxy S21 series could never have come at a better time. The arrival of 2021 was something many looked forward to as it meant leaving a tumultuous and chaotic 2020 behind.

Following many of the leaks that came out before the Unpacked event, the public had been in constant speculation if Samsung would be following in the footsteps of its longstanding rival.

Deal Breaker: Inside the box of the S21 Plus
No one lineup has ever been perfect. The S20 had problems with their refresh rates even though their camera system had been praised across the globe. The iPhone 12 series compared poorly with their Samsung counterpart when it came to camera performance. With the incumbent flagship lineup including the S21 Plus, it seems the deal breakers aren't with the devices themselves but with the packaging.
Many people had an inkling of what to expect when they opened the box. It’s simple packaging, with little flair and with just three things inside. When you open the box, the device which is the Samsug Galaxy S21 Plus will momentarily blind you as you will admire its beauty followed by the USB Type-C data and the accompanying cable. As with most packaging, the information packet and warranty card is there as well. You’ll also find the box containing the ejection tool somewhere in between that. There’s no charging brick or wall adapter and neither is there any earphones included.
Many are still reeling from this knowledge. You can see YouTube vlogger Flossy Carter express his displeasure in his unboxing of the S21 Plus here when there was no adapter to be found. However, in reality, even with the flack that Samsung initially gave Apple, it was inevitable ever since Apple started it two years ago.

Long and Tough Cable for the S21 Plus
It’s true that Samsung provided that Type-C cable in the box but the caveat to the bundled cable is that it’s never long enough when you’re topping up your devices.

Not only is it a great accessory for juicing up, it also supports super fast data transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps.
