, I buyed the S21 Ultra on Friday and have overheating issues. After minutes if camera usages or gaming the phone heats up to 44+ degrees and at a certain point it shuts down.Never buy a samsung phone with Exynos! I have learned my lesson 😌

Does anyone else hear movement from their camera when they slowly tilt their phone about 45 degrees, forwards or backwards? I know rattle is normal if you shake the phone but I think mine is excessive, it doesn't take much to hear something in the camera unit. Thanks!

Samsung's lucky I'm coming back smh... I got a samsung galaxy s10+ in 2019 and got a 1 year warranty on it and no joke the day after my warranty ran out all 5 cameras front and back stopped working... They said there was no way to repair it.

I have just sold my S21 Ultra... Loved everything about it except battery life!!! I had to charge it by 5pm!!!! What happened to those 5000 mAh???? And resell value of Samsung phones is also bad. I've used it for 2 weeks only but had to sell it 200$ less :(

I've owned the S21 Ultra for a month now and I'm not sure what all the hype is about. I think I like the camera on my Pixel 4XL more. It's faster in challanging light conditions and takes a more appealing photo it's just not as high resolution. Anyway it's just my opinion, buy what makes you happy.

I am debating between S21, S21+ and Note20 Ultra to replace my Note 8. Can you tell me your reasons for choosing Note20 Ultra over S21 Ultra? The price diff is not much ($50). Thanks!

Taking out the SD cards slot is a deal breaker for me. I have a 400GB card that's almost half full with pics, vids, etc. I can live without a headphone jack, but having external memory was what always made android phones a better option then iPhones for me. I'll probably grab the s20 ultra once it gets cheaper instead since it's not much different.

10 year Samsung fan but they keep changing the default browser to their "Internet" browser without consent. Of course you can't disable or uninstall either. From a strategy perspective, I wouldn't be mad if it made business sense. However, they will never make headway on Chrome. Jeopardizing user experience and brand loyalty.

People complaining about no head phone jack. Bro, if you cant afford wireless headphones then you aint buying this phone anyway, if you dont have a bluetooth connection to an audio device it clearly just isnt for you, it's not marketed for people like you, and no one cares. Upgrade your life.

I have the s21 ultra and so far it's the worst samsung phone I've ever owned. Battery drains in 8 hours. 8hours! Just sitting around in the morning it drops to 80%. My note 10+ would have still been at 97%. It is constantly loosing it's 5G signal and going offline. Apps like youtube, audible etc are buggy. Lots of other bugs.

I have S21 Ultra... I dont know if u notice that the display color gets warmer like the faces in the videos and pictures faces gets warmer and kinda yellowish even when i tone it to cooler tone. Still gets warmer. I dont know why is that. Im strict when it comes to color so yeah. Besides the color quality display everything is percect. Plus if you notice in NETFLIX some of the new Movies and shows gets dimmer and warmer.

One of the main reasons I switched from Apple and stuck with samsung for a few years now is the sd card slot. I would have bought the S21 ultra if it had the expandable memory 😑 Looking at other options!

S20 ultra 5g is literally the same device, and has a SD card slot that can take a 512gb micro SD card.

Everyone crying about the expandable storage. Guarantee that these are people who barely hit 20gb of used space
EVOLICIOUS 7 days ago
Definitely not. These are the best cameras on a smartphone on the market, doing 8k video and more that would eat up that internal storage in minutes. It's plain stupid for smasung to limit your storage to only 512gb for the highest end model. When the s20 ultra can get up to a terabyte with a 512gb SD card.

There is no "correct fps", it's only CAPABLE of 30fps on the 8k. It could do more with more power like a high end camera.

@Awais Qadri You said a lot there, in the end, I hope you find what you're looking for... I was skeptical about not having a microSD at first too. All of my previous phones had it, & to be able to switch them out was everything. I made the sacrifice for that & bought the 256GB model. That's enuff for me. I'm a photo & video guy, and the battery life on this phone is amazing.

Awais Qadri
Awais Qadri 5 days ago
@Kasino Marxs lol Bro i was joking don't get offended. Buying a larger capacity phone is the issue, every year manufacturers like this keeps reducing the tech. in our phones and keeps increasing the price. I remember when with a Note3 phone you could control the TV, ability to replace your battery, headphone jack, monitor real time weather, pressure, altitude, etc. with the tech that was build in the phone. Some areas don't have service (like hikers). MicroSD is a huge buying factor for me. I have over 1TB of files that i keep on hand in my card, these may include from work related files, songs, family pics and videos. Some may say buy streaming service for music, buy cloud service for files and pics, my question to them is, Why should we? Why should a consumer have to pay more monthly for a $1200+ phone investment? I don't care about having a camera with 108MP or a screen that will show a 8k resolution on a screen that small in which you can't even tell the difference. OK i may understand that some streamers, etc. may want those. But the Note line was designed for professionals that need a stylus, that need files, etc. on hand. Note line then became nothing more than a square Galaxy line and in the end just dying out.
