Galaxy S21 FE vs. Galaxy S22: Which one should you buy?

Up to this point, you might have an idea of the best phone to buy between these two premium models. But here's the thing; don't count your chicks early. In other words, we'll have to wait until the Galaxy S22 is officially released to know the top device between the two. But one thing is clear; Galaxy S22 comes full on most aspects.

Part 3: How to set up a Gmail account on a Samsung Galaxy phone?

Because Samsung Galaxy S22 is yet to be released, we'll use the Samsung S21 FE set up to add a Gmail account and configure emails. Without wasting time, here are two main methods for you to follow:

Method 1: Set a Google account in Samsung phones

Step 1. Launch your S21 FE phone and then connect it to a Wi-Fi source. Remember, you'll need an internet connection to set up email.

Step 2. Next, open the Settings app that comes pre-installed on your phone.

Step 3. Now tap the Accounts and backup button.

Step 4. Click Manage Accounts and then tap Add Account. Choose Gmail. Here, you can add Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, and more.

Step 5. Enter your Gmail address and password. It will be added to your phone automatically. You can also add more email accounts that you wish to use.

Method 2: Use the Gmail app to add a google account

These steps only apply to you if you’ve added a Google account to an Android device, but it’s not showing up in your Gmail app. The following steps also apply to Apple devices if users prefer not to add a Google account by the device’s Settings but still want to get into their Gmail.

  • Step 1: Open the “Gmail” app on your phone.
  • Step 2:  Tap the icon “Google Account” in the top-right corner.
  • Step 5: Choose Continue on the pop-up window to allow the app to access
  • Step 6: Input Google account address or phone number.
  • Step 7: Input your Google account password.
  • Step 8: Choose “I Agree” on the Google Terms of Service screen.
  • Step 9: Add a credit card for purchases or tap No Thanks.
