    Payed review. Otherwise you would mention that Android Auto is not working,...that fingerprint sensor works every third time,....that wireless Samsung DEX has half of second of lag,....that it does not charge if you are using it at the same time,....that S-Pen works extremly poorly to the point that is useless,........

    Look like S21 design train get off the rails of equal, Semetrical, Simple, basic scales/Styles… Man! look a bit ugly and boring, this design is very old samsung, remind Me Over 10 Years ago before they learned and copy simplicity from Iphones, now Look like Samsung is going back to Flashy korean Trends,

    What about shutter speed? Or shutter lag? Reviewers rarely touch upon this subject with Samsung phones. I believe Samsung still has issues when trying to capture moving objects such as children or animals in photography.

    Horrible review because of the wallpaper on the S20, absolutely horrible! JK!!! Gotem.... Naw bro great review of the phone, your reviews of phones and stuff are absolutely something else. I can't even describe words. I don't know if my iPhone 7 Plus will last longer because of this phone. It still works good, but it's getting outdated. I want a newer phone but my mom always has to get the older phones from 2016/ 2017. Can't get anything newer because all she cares about is her top of the line crap. Anyways great video

    Why are no reviewers talking about the difference between 12gb and 16gb performance? I need to make a decision can someone help PLEASE? Also are the 512gb not being made anymore? I hear verizon is telling people it was a promotional model that they wont carry anymore?

    With that kind of price, they should include the Spen and case as part of the package. The S21 Ultra's price should be reduced significantly now it is confirmed the phone has heating issue and the adaptive refresh rate is causing startled problem. The battery life is also not much better than the S20 ultra as claimed.

    Cheap phones r comming with micro photography, its bull*hit, premium coustomer service center , my experience since s7edge samsung treats its coustomer as garbage, When u first time open samsung its google sign in , why don't they give 2 years membership for google photo 1000TeraByte backup in google or in south korea, samsung runs its country south Korea , it must give back up to all samsung users. Just big big talks, zillion dollars company. Need to use phone as garbage use n throw, but backup precious data on cloud.

    S21 Ultra is an awesome phone minus it feels heavy in hand / pocket.

  • 3rdPartyOP

    Really stuck between this one and the Note 20 Ultra. I'm still on a Note 8 but I couldn't imagine not having an S Pen, without hindering the design of the phone. Though if I'm going to update, I'd want to have the latest hardware. Especially since the Note is still a little extra and there won't be a new Note this year, more than likely.

    Not going lie. I've had my s21 ultra for about 2 weeks and it's like 2 times slower on 5g speeds the my note 9 was on 4g. The problem is that 5g is soo new that they haven't worked on the kinks and bugs yet. I'm taking my s21 ultra in for only a 4g Sim card. At least I future proofed the phone for when 2 years goes by and 5g is way more popular and wide spread. When the Time comes I can change it to a 5g sim.

    I swear there used to be a time when we talked about the Exynos chip performing better in all benchmarks than the Snapdragon. Around the S8 era. Am I wrong or? I am in Australia and back when I used Samsung's I was always under the impression the Exynos chip was superior at the time. Did that change? Has it always been Snapdragon as the best?

    • Pixels

      That's correct around 2015 Exynos was better, but in 2019 they started to fall behind Snapdragon

  • SonsOfAlan

    Can I just say that you are one of the best on ARcodes?

    Samsung should make a special edition version of this Phantom Black S21 Ultra with a white camera housing and call it the Phanton Of The Opera Edition.
