Before buying any smartphone, the users of today’s generation pay most attention to its camera feature. The Galaxy M21 has a triple rear camera set-up with LED flash light. The primary sensor of the phone has been given 48MP. Its primary camera has a sensor with f / 2.0 aperture. The phone has an 8MP ultra wide angle camera, which has an aperture f / 2.2. Apart from this, the third 5MP camera has been given in the phone, which has an aperture f / 2.2. The phone has a 20MP front camera for selfie with f / 2.2 aperture.

Its camera has a variety of modes, including Pro Mode, Panorama Mode, Night Mode, Food Mode, Super-Slow-Mo Mode, Slow-Mo Mode and Hyper Lapse Mode. Pro mode is mainly for users doing professional photography, in which they can make camera settings according to their own. In panorama mode you can do 360 degree photography. Food mode is mainly used to do food photography. In this mode you can click with the picture clarity and perfect color combination of food items. Night mode is also given in the phone. That is, you can also do photography in low light with this budget smartphone.
