You forgot to mention; The Galaxy S21 Ultra Super Slow Motion only captures 480 fps The Galaxy S21 and S21+ Super Slow Motion capture at 960 fps The S21 and S21+ SloMos look SO much better and smoother, it is downright shame they downgraded the Ultra like that for a bigger sensor

I got the S21+ through Samsung's trade in program. I have to say I miss the MST since some of the vending machines at work don't have NFC, but eh, everything else does. Everything else is good. Upgrading from the S10e the screen is massive though, took me a little to get used to.

One tip would be is dont buy this Samsung model if you live in Europe as it has an inferior CPU compaired to the ones that ship to the USA. If you really need one then ship one from the USA.

@Marques Brownlee excellent review 100% top job i just ordered the standard based on the quality info, i use it for work and even though its a free upgrade on any of the version i really dont see the need for the Ultra as its size and camera are a waste for me. top job thanks for the advice and help

@thc s20fe is great if youre getting the sd865 version. Micro sd slot, bigger battery and charger as well. Minor thing i dont like is just the thick bezel and thats just it hehe

@Bryan Park total deal breaker for me is the lack of charger, esp for me coming from a different phone brand ☹️ also considering the s20 FE, but no expandable memory and max storage is 128gb. There really isn't a perfect phone lol anyway thank you!

The plus : one ui experience, that thin bezel design while mantaining flat screen, good camera. Minus : no charger, no audio jack adapter (need to buy it seperetaly), no expandable memory (thast why i get the 256), if you are on exynos region, its a little worse than the SD. So mainly, you buy this phone for the software and ui experience (really love samsung ui), camera is pretty good even tho i got the exynos one. If you are on the SD region, get it, but if you are on exynos region looking for better performance (SD 888), other phone like mi 11 or rog 5 is better with the same price or less price

S21 is not more value. Theyve reduced all the features, especially chargers and SD cards. Shit company, I used to be a Samsung fan but I'm switching like many others. They're acting like they've dropped the price due to the features when it was artificially inflated anyways. We used to be a £500 flagships then copied apple to me 1k

I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G like a few months ago and I am facing, not a problem but an issue of the noise with the camera. when you rock the phone up and down there is a loud noise from the camera sensor and I just want to make sure if its normal. I actually don’t have any known people with Note 20 Ultra to give me the confirmation that’s this is a normal thing that happened with all the Note 20 Ultra users. In short my question is that is this noise present in all the mobile phones or just some faulty ones. Thanks.

Prior to the S21 I had the Xiaomi MI 9, so I wouldn't know but I hear many S20 owners say that they prefer the S20 due to the higher resolution and the microSD. But for me the resolution is perfect and Micro SD is not important.

I like the direction Samsung is going with the design of the S21, very attractive & different phone, but not worth the $800 IMO. I'll just lay back & wait, either they'll build onto this design & improve it to make it worthwhile orrr they disappoint & I'll buy the 21 when it's cheaper 🙃

Samsung needs to get their shit together and build in every phone either the Exynos or Qualcomm chip and not dependent on the region. If they use two different chips, they need to make two different models.

My beloved S10+ 5G cracked in my pocket so I went out and picked up an S21+ without doing ANY research on Samsung phones since I got my S10+ I didn't watch a single video on the S21. Well it's been 2 days and I noticed every single missing feature over the S10+. I'm kind of blown away by it. I feel regret every time I pick the phone up. The only redeeming quality to me is the camera and 120hz. Everything else about the S10+ 5G is better to me. Just really bummed and ashamed of myself. because now I'm stuck with it for 2 years. I will most definitely be ditching Samsung after this. And I've had ever Galaxy S phone since the S3. Sorry, just needed to let that out.

A plastic back, no micro SD, no variable aperture (I know, since s20), what do they think we are, Apple users? I will continue to take good care of my s9 plus until Samsung decides to create something good again.

The problem is that overall the S21 is a downgrade from S20 . The biggest problem is the Display . I know the S20 only had 60hz on 1440p and 120hz on 1080 , but at least you could choose . On you S20 if you whant higher refresh rate for gaming you can go for 1080 120hz , but if you whant to look at a quality display you can change it to 1440p 60hz . On S21 they took that away and that is a big problem . It is the first time in S-series History when a new S-series has lower features compare to the old one . Let s say i would understand that if the price of S21 would be cheaper , but is even more expensive than S20 , so yes that is problem . Who care s that S20 was more expensive when was relesead if now S20 has better features and better price. I don t get why on earh would someone woud pay that kind of money for S21?

0:30 I saved big time. $800.00 normally, I got mine at Best Buy for $250.00 less. I went from the Note 10+, to the S21. I got tired of a large phone. Looked into the Galaxy Flip, but when I opened it, it was large as my Note. As I did my research, the S21 holds up good.

@Kim NjaiThanks for A2A. I live in India. note that i still use an iphone se 2016 for two reasons- 1) I love my Rose Gold SE and dont want to give it away. 2) I am a student and tech savvy and phones are addicting to me. regarding your question, if i had to buy either of 12 pro max or s21 ultra, i would try to buy one from countries like usa. There samsung phones have snapdragon and iphones are cheaper. when i grow up i probably would get into apple ecosystem because i happen to pursue computer engineering and macbooks are best for it. apple products go hand in hand very well. But you can also buy samsung as their devices are optimised with windows computer.

@Anthony I actually don't mind the hole punch at the top. It is a little distracting but I'm getting used to it. I REALLY like that there is a little timer that goes around that when you are in portrait mode with the camera that tells you where to look for the shot. The volume rockers being on the right is taking me a while to get used to, and the fact that the phone doesn't have the power button on the side right out of the box like it used to. I've only had the phone for a few days but I'm already adjusting though :) It's worth the upgrade!
Anthony 10 დღის წინ
@A Beautiful Disaster does that hole at the top of screen get in the way is it distracting? and what about the volume rockers being on the right side now what you think? hopefully i can get used to it.
A Beautiful Disaster
A Beautiful Disaster 11 დღის წინ
@Anthony There's definitely some stuff that is taking some getting used to but overall I am very pleased! The few things that I knew about but didn't realize were going to be quite so irritating are: 1. No notification light (I have it lighting up the sides now for notifications so...irritating but not as much). 2. The lack of charger in the box - I feel like it should be noted that if you are upgrading from the lower Galaxy phones, you also can't use the brick you already have. I didn't realize that and now have to purchase the actual type C brick because the cord they send with this phone doesn't have a standard USB on the other end either. I also had to upgrade my car charger for the same reason. Outside of those 2 things though: this is SO MUCH FASTER and the camera is SO MUCH BETTER. I didn't realize how dull my eyes were showing on my previous camera and with this one, I can actually see details. Everything moves faster - I'm not stalling out on apps, it's picking up signals better, and where I thought my S8 was "just fine", the processing time is spectacular on this and the colors are so much brighter. ALSO! The inclusion of Samsung Global Goals, where I can earn money to donate to charities and such while I'm just charging the phone, was an unexpected bonus and one I'm glad to have. Super happy with this.....still wish it would have kept the headphone jack, not gonna lie.

Warning to others I’ve had this phone for a week and I had to return it yesterday due to volume problems. I have been a galaxy owner for over eight years and love them until this phone everything else was actually fine but the volume was a huge issue for me I could not get it loud enough and when I was at the gym and I have my earphones on I could hear everyone and it just I was so annoying and they couldn’t get it loud enough they couldn’t fix the problem so I had to go to the Darkside and get an iPhone. Everything else about the phone was all right but the volume is an issue hopeless it review help someone take care friends
