    If the same design came in local brand they it would be called ugly lol 🤡

  • Shiki

    I had plastic Samsung phones in the past (S3 and S5) and they look absolutely awful after living for one year in a pocket. Plastic will get scratched by almost anything unlike glass. I don't use cases, I think they're bulky and ugly, especially on flagship devices that have great aesthetics.

  • TheRzrsedge

    S21 ultra No fast charge not enough ram or storage only 128GB model available on carriers. Feels like a brick in your hand very heavy and too large to hold in one hand.

    Good review. It helps Samsung realize that we're alright with getting screwed out of every single accessory and slot/port on our phones while paying over $1000 for the privilege.

    My S21+ came with a Type C cord and thats it - the cord is the same on both ends- it wont even fit in the phone charger port. If it does, it doesnt click in there and feel like it fits. I have been using my Old charger from my S10.... That Shouldnt work though should it? And I purchased a splitter, so I could plug in my AUX Cord. This cord is Type C Also, and Does Not fit in my 21+... I dont understand whats going on... And, They swindled me at the Verizon store, tricked me into giving up my old phone. Literally tricked me and didnt give me straight forward answers. I am VERY UNHAPPY with the S21+, and UNHAPPY with Verizon. I will be returning mine and downgrading.....

      It would be awesome if they made a note 9 fan edition. Keep the phone the same, except put in a new processor, battery, 120hz screen, etc. and 2 more years of software support.

    Just to clarify I went from a samsung galaxy s7 to a s21 5g so technically my old phone outlasted the iphone 5,6,7,8,10 and 11 so samsung did put effort into longevity but my s7 got the black screen of death so I was kinda bummed. I hope my s21 lasts just as long a the s7 did because that phone was the shit.

    Apple isn't Ideal for longevity when it comes to phones. They'll always crap up eventually and they can't be repaired by 3rd party repair shops or individual repair.

    3:40 really disappointed that you would say this. I bought the phone thinking the display actually looked good but its honestly horrible. Gamma is way off and colors either way over saturation on vivid or under saturated on natural.

    Not sure about 8gb of ram , but here in Russia it is 12gb of ram, and of course you can buy snapdragon one from some shops

  • Anarchitect

    Funny that Samsung takes the battery charger but, if you buy the Ultra $1200 bucks, they give you $250 to spend on accessories, if you buy from their store

    15:05 , lol, ha, he thinks we want to use phone cases. Not everyone gets new phones every month for free, mind you. Guess im in one of my moods of seeing the world for wht it really is, a world with only " THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS" Its never been more apparent, you cant escape it. It thrown in your face every day.

    Guys, I have bought a Samsung with exynos cuz I live in EU, and it’s not worth the money. I recommend not to buy. Skip this model and wait till samsung offer the exact same model as it is on the american market. Samsung S21 Snapdragon is more powerfull than S21 Exynos, and you cannot buy S21 Snapdragon on the EU market. Thanks to samsung!

    Is no one going to complain about the fact that advertising is built-in to the Weather app? Only way to disable ads is to not sign into Samsung which makes it so you can't find your phone remotely

    For the 21 Ultra I love it but I still hate the fact that I can't put an SD card in it to expand memory also still don't like how they never brought back the headphone jack but oh well just a couple things I can learn to live without.

    It's so funny that this guy's thinks iPhone so better lmao There's a reason why the US military uses Samsung buddy.

  • SaulsieBerries

    I spent this whole video distracted by the lisp, courtesy Linus' invisible retainer.


    Total overpriced shite Wayy too many tech packed sub 300dollar phones to even consider this rip off. Classic brand snob mentality of people these days

  • xxlcountryguy

    Umm I thought the biggest deteriorate factor for a battery life was heat and since high watt charging creates higher heat but for a much shorter period that made it last longer?

  • Shajirr

    So S21e isn't happening, huh? S10e was a better phone than S10... Guess I'll just get S10e, since it still can run Android 11, and when that becomes very outdated I don't know... If only Samsung could fuck off with their Exynos chips too

    "Apple is waaaaay better". Pulls out iPhone 12 and reads out loud a loooong list of everything that has ALWAYS sucked ass about Apple. LoL. Typical iPhone zombie follower mentality. In a way ALL Apple freaks are right, if u like to be limited and told about what u CAN and CANNOT do with ur phone, Apple is king. They are laughing all the way to the bank when they dictate what u are and aren't allowed to do with ur iSuck Ass Pro Max
