The progression and evolution of Samsung has not gone the way I would've foreseen it. In the beginning when I first became a new fan, it was the Samsung S3. I've owned the S3, LG G3, S6 Edge, S7 Edge, S8, Note 8, S9, Note 9, S10 Plus, Note 10 Plus, S20 Plus, Note 20 Ultra, and now the S21 Ultra. What got me on Samsung? I felt Samsung actually listened to consumers and gave us the room to help with development. "The next best thing" It was a work in progress with every release and I felt like I was a part of it. I was also not an Apple fan with the limited custom features and controls. Fast forward to the S21 series. There's a saying, you either die a hero, or live long enough to become the villain. It appears the entire time, Samsung was the villain in the making. We knew Samsung wanted to prove Apple wrong, but I didn't realize Samsung wanted to actually become Apple. They mocked Apple only to follow Apple, what a bunch of hypocrites. The peak of Samsung when I felt it was the people's company was the S10 plus. The S10+ offered it all, the little FanBoy items that made me feel life was good with Samsung: headphone jack, heart rate sensor, MST/NFC mobile payment technology, great screen, thin bezel, in screen fingerprint scanner, included AKG headphones, fast charger, and expanded storage. Do you remember? Then the slow decline: the Note10 Plus released with no headphone jack and the loss of MST mobile pay. Then the S20 Plus, no headphone jack, no MST, no heart rate sensor. And now, the S21 Ultra with no headphone jack, no MST, no heart rate sensor, no headphones, no fast charger and no expandable storage.What have we gain with the S21 Ultra? At a high cost, the screen is the best smartphone screen in the industry. Barnone with its 120hz refresh rate and adaptive resolution. The in-screen fingerprint scanner is upgraded, the camera is now among the best in a very crowded and competitive pool.After using the S21 Ultra for a few days, I was underwhelmed, coming from the S20 Plus. I found myself missing the S20 Plus, and more the S10 Plus, even with the new upgrades. I've lost enthusiasm and confidence in Samsung. The S21 Ultra's weight and size is not for me, I found myself with hand fatigue and not really enjoying using the S21 Ultra. The SPen support is nice, but come on Samsung, this is a Galaxy S phone. The Note 20 Ultra is actually the better phone than the S21 Ultra if you want productivity and comfort.There's no doubt the performance is noticeable particularly the high resolution and high refresh rate with the new Snapdragon 888, 12 gigs of memory and faster storage speeds. But was it an advancement worth upgrading to...my 100% sure answer, definitive no. There is a lacking of quality and value that I look for and want. And in a way, Samsung I have a feeling knows that. The pandemic and consumer behavior may have had something to do with it, but the S21 Ultra despite its advancements, left out too many great distinguishing Samsung features that defined a Samsung Galaxy S-series phone. The pre-order deal was so enticing to me, I jumped on it, with $700 of my old S20plus to trade up, and to also get $260 off of added buys - so I got the Buds Pro, S-pen, and a Samsung Case. But I've decided to keep my S20 Plus and paying the difference.What I plan to do now is keep the S21 Ultra as a backup phone and continue to use my S20 Plus and Notw 20 Ultra. Truth is I still have the S10 Plus and continue to be completely nostalgic about it -- putting my sim card in it from time to time reminiscing how it could've been instead of where we are now in the Samsung Galaxy S Line Up.Imagine the S21 Ultra having these features: MTS/NFC payments, heart rate sensor, expandable storage, exceptional camera, best industry screen, IP68, Invictus protection, 120hz refresh rate with high resolution, 5000ma battery and everything else it has.That would be something amazing and exciting!!!If you still own the S10 Plus, keep it, if you own the S20 Plus, keep it. The S21 Ultra, in my humble opinion is Samsung reducing itself to become the villain. Don't start another lease agreement, extend your contract, or get into another debt on the S21 Ultra. It's harsh and it's my opinion.Rumor is we may not see the next Note this year, which disturbs me even more....stay tuned. Samsung is trending toward Foldables, which I just don't get.
I start saying “don’t pay attention to those 1-star reviews, which complain about no dual SIM support, no microSD, no charger, heaviness, etc." We know the specs of what we're buying, if getting a microSD slot is paramount for some, they shouldn’t have bought the S21 in the first place.My experience with this phone has been excellent, having had almost every Galaxy S/Note iteration since 2010, S21 Ultra is no doubt the best smartphone Samsung has ever produced. Great high refresh QHD AMOLED display, solid built, powerful camera system with best-in-class zoom, improved fingerprint sensor, butter smooth interface, more-than-capable Snapdragon chipset, best battery life of any Galaxy S (one day with heavy use and two with light use). Yes, it is a heavy device but nowadays even midrange phones are weighting around 7 oz. Of course it’s not perfect but it’s close, low light photography could be better and should improve with software updates, speakers are just OK for a flagship, it ought to have faster charging capability (45W at least).That’s my summary, if you buy the S21 Ultra, you won’t be disappointed.
The s21 Ultra is best smartphone on the market, 1440p 120fps oled makes for a screen that looks so good with its high pixel density. blacks are super black, this screen goes really bright too in the sun. really smooth too. one of the best screens I've ever seen ever. newest 5nm snapdragon 888 processor makes it really fast and efficent. best main camera and telephoto camera ever. bettery life is ok, get like 6 hours sot with 1440p enabled depending how heavy you use your phone. just make sure to go throught the setting and change from fhd+ to qhd+ to get the sharpest display.only thing is its on the large side but doesn't feel that large because its taller than wider.don't get anything less than 256gb because there's no expandable storage.
