      Hi Dad! loved the intro. My S21 ultra Exynos processor can't do a video call while using another app (like Chrome browser) without overheating and blocking multitasking! Something my S9plus could do all day. Very disappointed.

    I've seen reviews that say the Sony experia 1-3 is better than the S21.

  • Kalevipoeg

    Why is nobody talking about what can be a VERY big deal breaker? Burn-in. I've heard Samsung devices have been getting burn-in if you for example game a lot and you have button icons on the screen for extended periods of time, or just fall to sleep with the thing on and it doesn't go to sleep, and that's a BIG DEAL for a phone that costs more than a lot of laptops. This is one big reason I am considering staying with Apple and going with the 12 Pro Max, because that has NEVER been an issue with me - and I've never had radical battery differences with updates like some have reported with the S21 Ultra. But mostly, the burn-in thing IS a very concerning issue. I don't care how good the phone is out of the box - if six months or a year later I have burn-in, that was a bad purchase.

    I just got my s21 ultra yesterday. And just having it for a days use. I'm amazed. I still have my s20 ultra but absolutely the cameras are more sleek more compact not as bulgey. Either way they are both good phones. But if I had to pick I would go with the 21 ultra. The other issue I might have is obviously the updated. Maybe they will do an s22 or something that is a phone with the s-pen and we don't really need a note phone again but you know.

    Great video! Can anybody help me out? Pictures from my s21 ultra are very disappointing. My old iPhone XR seemingly took better photos with a very much inferior camera. but I’ve seen amazing photos taken from the s21 ultra, I’m guessing it’s probably my phone. Also, my display isn’t nearly as smooth as what others report with the 120hz display, maybe android just still isn’t as refined as IOS yet? I don’t know, it just feels clunky to me. Consistency has always been my biggest issue with Samsung, I thought I’d give them another chance but idk if I can deal with this for 2 years.

  • Gordon

    Samsung updated the S21 Ultra firmware a few days ago, specifically targeting the camera in portrait mode, now uses main camera.

    I'm just over 1 month in using this Snapdragon version 512gb. Have to say, it seems to be learning and getting better with time. Battery life has improved for sure. I use adaptive (120hz) and WQHD+ and am getting 10hrs SOT. This device is great. Exceeded my expectations. If there is 1 negative about it, it would only be the weight. I feel it's a little hefty and still not used to it coming from my S10e. Overall, I rate this very high. Of all the new phones I've purchased throughout the decades, by far this is my best experience. Second to this is when I bought the Galaxy S5 Active in 2014 (that's when I made the switch from being an iPhone user). 👍🏽👍🏽

    Love the S21 Ultra over the S20 Ultra. My only comment is there is a portrait mode with zoom that allows me to take close ups of my orchids in flower. Photos are crisp and sharp and can be enhanced....something I found lacking in the S 20. All in all an awesome smartphone. I was also a note user, so I like the concept of an S pen. Unfortunately cases that include the S pen are way more than the regular protection I said no thanks and I made sure to purchase a protective case with a sliding camera cover protector. Nothing like a cracked camera lens to ruin a perfectly good phone. Thank you for the awesome review.

    They've taken a few things in but haven't done the most important. With is making all the phones with the one chip. It's basically like having 2 different phones that are exactly the same. Here in Australia we get the exynos chip. Which is why I try to go with the pixel 5 but didn't last I'm back with Samsung just disappointed and will always be until they give up with the exynos or make all phones have the exynos or make the exynos version cheaper considering it's less performance.

  • Martin Griffiths
    Martin Griffiths

    Ahh man! What a mixed bag the camera has turned out to be (for me). I have the 256GB Exynos, here's my findings on the photography front... In general I think it's fair to say this phone expands the shooting possibilities far beyond any other device I've had to date, which most recently include the S20 FE 5G, Pixel 4XL, Pixel 2XL. For me the choice of focal ranges is what i've been looking for and something I didn't ever expect to see in a package like this. I thought triple lens cameras would be the limit, so the S21 Ultra came as a surprise and I hoped mistakes made in the past generation would be ironed out. The hardware itself is definitely more than capable of handling a multitude of shooting scenarios but it is ultimately let down by the software that I VERY much doubt will be fixed, ever! My first impressions were of the sensor/lens choices themselves, all seem very capable, all include massively improved stabilization and autofocus capabilities and even the pixel sizes are promising particularly on the tele lenses. A clue to Samsung engineering decisions comes with the assumed improvement over to the 108MP pixel binning sensor compared to the S20 Ultra last year, but it serves far more than just taking photos in the wide setting. Samsung are clearly borrowing ideas from the AI kings at Google, but their implementation is weak and in many scenarios I have found using the cameras terribly frustrating. Overall, in brightly lit daytime shots indoors and outdoors with all lenses I cannot complain, but that's as long as you're pointing the camera at certain "targets" that are deemed "ideal" for the lens mode you are in! When I venture outside these "ideal" scenarios I'm ending up with unexpected and awful results. In medium and low light scenes my problem is exacerbated further through Samsungs "smart" choices that you have no control over whatsoever, giving me further disappointing results. So what am I banging on about here? Well in a nutshell it's Samsungs "focus assist" mode. As an end user you only know it exists because you can selectively turn it off between the 0.6x UW and 1x W lenses when moving a subject much closer to the lens itself...But, you cannot turn it off between the 1x W, 3x tele and 10x tele lenses! In scenarios Sammy deem fit for telephoto shots, ie. extra long focal length scenes (generally) in good light the tele lenses are always picked at the set 3x and 10x magnifications. Pictures are often impressive but at times smoothing could be better and sometimes I get light haloing around objects, but still a big improvement on anything i've had before. It all goes terribly wrong when I bring my subjects much closer to the lenses in either the 3x or 10x tele modes. These lenses have great autofocus and are more than capable of handling this scenario, but what the software does (after a second or two) is pick the next sodding lens down and then upscale the flaming image! Some might say, that's my fault because I've pushed the ISO or shutter speed too much, but no, it's happening when there's more than enough light available to these lenses and even if it wasn't, night mode would overcome this in dark scenes anyhow! Which moves me onto the 108MP sensor, Sammy picked it not just for the 4x binning extra light crud. It also makes for a great cropping in option when deemed "necessary", and you'd think the results would be comparable to the 3x tele, but sadly no, in almost every shot i've taken where it's used the 1x to crop in the results are still very disappointing compared to the optical lenses. Smoke and mirrors people, smoke and mirrors! Focus assist should be optional for ALL lenses and if you do turn it off, all it needs to do is warn you that a shot might not come out as well as you expected. Although to be blunt the results with it permanently on are terrible anyway! In fact I personally feel it shouldn't be doing what it's doing at all. Anyone who has ever held a camera and taken a photograph will know these things cannot work miracles, and Samsung are literally trying to trick you into thinking it can, with awful results! If you get the over processed, smushed images they are all coming from the lenses dropping down and upscaling or cropping in from the 108MP sensor. Utterly awful engineering decisions that make it all look seamless and "magic" but you more often that not get terrible photos.

    I hope that the Note 21 still has MST since here in FL a lot of vendors can only use MST to make touchless payments or to get cash back. At Publix it let you use both but if you want cash back from a debit card you only have 2 choices use MST or the card itself.

    Sold my iPhone to buy the S21 Ultra. Its an amazing device but... I think its not worth the money. Camera is an issue on the Exynos. Too much noise when zoomed and even on the main sensor. Hope updates can fix it.

    Your advice on fingerprints is bad advice if you want faster recognition. One fingerprint slot is enough to capture a fingerprint if you do it properly and the phone doesn't have to match your biometrics to 4 profiles but 1 therefore it goes faster. You could test it if you want

    The lack of accessories is not an issue of value, but an issue of: The customer don't matter. If you are a prestigious brand, you would aspire to deliver the most prestigious package to the consumer. What if Tesla stopped selling wheels? What if Starbucks stopped selling coffee in cups? What if architects design schools without classrooms? What if McDonald's sold you cheeseburgers without cheese? It's sad that in 2021, basic things like basic customer service and product essentials have to be taught.
