    The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a huge, powerful Android phone with no fewer than five cameras. The main 108-megapixel sensor is the best Samsung has ever shipped - promises were made and, for once, kept. Dieter Bohn reviews the newest flagship phone from Samsung featuring the new Snapdragon 888, 120hZ refresh rate screen, and all its much-improved cameras.

Dayum I want this so bad but there's ONE thing I can't live without: the STYLUS! so will there be an S21 NOTE!!??!?! Also, it's good he tells us that there is no SD card slot so for me It's important to buy the 512 storage for the added $180

In my humble opinion the Ultra is the 😻's meow. It's feature packed. The 🍎ain't? A multitasking customized dream! The Ultra wins the day for me. 🍎, still 60hz display, 64gb's base storage and that ridiculous 🙄notch. Outdated design? No i-sheeper phone for me?

Well there's a limitation, I believe which concerns with the size of the photo and therefore in order to match the size limit of photos on social media the original photos are compressed and as a result you can notice a drop in resolution.

I just got my preordered S21 Ultra 512G from Verizon, and love it. It looks so cool, and is the same price as my 2 year old Note 9 512G when I got it, and us a smidgen narrower than my Note 9. A newer S Pen will be coming out later. I believe it is BT capable. I like the looks of the iPhone 12 Pro Max 512G, but like this one better. But like all my previous phones, I use the Otterbox Defender Pro case, Invisible Shield top screen protector, and my NiteIze XXL Hardshell belt clip holster. I will be getting the Galaxy Pro Buds next week when my local Honolulu Best Buy will have it in stock. Also, the S21 Ultra has the huge 5000 mAh battery, and 10G more RAM than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. I previously had all the top Motorola Droid Phones until they went to the modular format, becayse it was better that the top iPhones of that time in msny ways, then got my Pixel XL, and my Note 9 512G, which is still a great phone, but the battery may be going soon. All my previous phone batteries practically died after two years of use.

Samsung had the android phone crown since the Galaxy S3. The comeup started with the S2/Note around late 2010/11. I think motorola and HTC had the crown with the Droid phones and the Evo. Samsung was able to get a similar phone on every carrier starting with the original Galaxy S. Marketing played a big factor in their dominance also.

I wish I knew if it has the Samsung Translation bugs that happen with Speech to text like my S7 does (I say Comma, it either spells out comma or prints "oh," Or if I say he, it'll print she, him or some random identifier). Or have they taught the S21 Ultra proper English grammar?

Typically, I would always buy the "plus" phones but they really disappointed me with those and thank God they knocked the Ultra out of the park. Thank God they also lowered the price too lol. I had the 10+ and wasn't crazy about the 20+ and it's pricetag. Then I heard these were being released earlier so I went to the LG v60 for a few months, that phone was on to something but ultimately lacked good software. So I went to the s20FE and it just felt better being back with samsung. A 1080p screen isn't THAT bad. Personally, I could tell that it wasn't Samsung's best screen but not terrible in the slightest. Using jump on demand with T-Mobile I was able to do this and not spend any money until I had to pre-order the s21 Ultra. I always like to get the best of the best just because I don't mind having a phone for the next two years but I feel like the s21 plus wasn't going to hold me over for 2 years. With a new demanding job in IT my phone was going to be ringing quite a bit and being used quite a bit so having that bigger battery is going to be a huge advantage. I think it should be arriving sometime on Friday so I'm anxious to see if it was worth spending the extra money. From all the reviews I've seen it seems so.

When the s9+ dropped I bought the s10+ and kept the s9+ to compare and the s10+ had much better picture quality when the s20 dropped I took my s10+ to the store to compare...s10+ beat it. Now here they go again just adding more cameras and more cameras I'll wait for the s22 ultra

Even if in some parallel universe the Ultra were better at everything in terms of hardware and camera, there would still be one giant, looming disadvantage destroying all of that: Android, of course. Also their OneUI interface. Ads in native apps? On a 1200+ USD phone? 🤣 Come on, give me a break. Also, just the mess their notifications center has become. And the Settings menu. 😬🤦‍♂️

I don't get why reviewers like you consider having options as a negative for the UI experience. I mean it's there for people who might need it and if you don't that's fine. It's not distracting or hard to ignore. Just a silly point to bring out against Samsung's UI every other year.

Any one else pre-order their phones on the 14th only to be told they were get them later than people who can walk into a store and get them that didn't pre-order. I noticed it on the 20th and called Samsung and there guaranteed me 3 different times it would be the 29th. Then today I got a email saying feb 9th. So frustrating!!

To think that Huawei P40 Pro+ was the first to introduce 2 zoom cameras, and that was released summer 2020, i would say samsung took Huawei's lead on camera set up. I can't actually wait to see what Huawei will do with their next flagship. I would happily lose google services than have them monopolise my data any day of the year.

I’m thinking about selling my iPhone 12 Pro after this. I really liked this phone. My last android was the Samsung S10, still have it, works perfectly, fast and sharp, i use it as my side phone, my wife used ir for 3 months and broke all the corners of the scree and the right side from the camera glass. Still works like new. That’s my experience with Samsung and now the came out with this fantastic design and features... don’t know what to do.

We shouldn't care about the "crown" of best Android phone or for that matter the best iPhone. Rather we should find a phone which is best suitable for our individual needs and which will last for good 3-4 years. Otherwise, no phone will be "best" for more than 2-3 months. I mean new phones keep coming.
