I went to a Samsung store and felt the phone in hand I was so surprised to hear that the back was plastic I genuinely thought it was glass

The phone market is a complete joke. Same boring crap comes out every year and content creators struggle to make it all look like something new. It's dishonest and getting pretty old. I definitely notice this thing is plastic. It's slippery as ice, so thin it's hard to hold on to without a case the screen is void of color and bland. Only the frequency gets a plus in my book. Selfie camera is obnoxious and in the way on the screen. The 1080p is pathetic. Saying 'you probably won't notice" And changing something major is rather ignorant of you. But I suppose you are talking to the ignorant common public.

I realize this video is over 3 months old. I just ordered a S21+ 256gb. Im a galaxy user since the 5. (great phone. along with the 7.) I was about to buy the S21 Ultra until I learned the standard and plus had flat screens but the Ultra was curved. Ive spent too much time with my S9+ and its garbage curved screen to ignore a return to flat screens. Samsung, Stop it. This is a good informative video and I appreciate it. Keep up the good work.

I never used the expandable storage or headphone jack or the card swipe thing on my s10. And it’s broken and to pay to get it fixed is only $150 less than just getting the s21 in my country. So i ordered that instead.

Samsung are realising people are no longer interested in getting a new phone every year. They've lowered the price to try and tempt people in. But think about it, once the excitement of owning a new phone has worn off, it's really no different from the last phone you had. Honestly, I get more excitement out of buying a new phone case these days. I'm still on an s10e. I'm getting a little tired of the smaller screen, so may get the s21, but only the basic model with 5g.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 is breathing down its neck. I think I'd choose the Xiaomi over this. The Ultra is undoubtedly the best phone out there right now, with the caveat that the Mate 40 Pro+ would probably have kicked its ass had it GMS.

@PixelsI get it. Thought you meant the softwear thing that Samsung didn't use the telephoto for portrait
Pixels 2 ימים לפני
@Troodon Farhad Oh, that's not what I meant. I was trying to say the "telephone" camera is actually just another wide angle lens, not an actual zoom camera. What happens is that since it's higher resolution, they can crop the sensor to digitally zoom in. That means wide angle distortion is still there so it isn't good for portrait shots.
Troodon Farhad
Troodon Farhad 2 ימים לפני
@Pixels Haven't Samsung fixed that problem? I think a saw a tweet from Iceuniverse that they had fixed it with an update
Pixels 2 ימים לפני
Agreed, I'd rather have one less camera than 3 cameras that are lower quality. The "telephoto" camera is misleading though so I won't recommend to anyone who wants to shoot portraits

i find it funny that the things listwd that phone users care about is what i phone users look for. i'm more interested in functionality, and expandable memory. i'm sad they got rid of the sd card slot tray. and i do miss the bixby button and the curved edges. but ii's slowly growing on me. slowly >.>

the only act of balance samsung did is what kind of profit percentage they make; is it 100% is it 150% or so on. Let's be real, not including a charger is a cost saving move at best, even if they cut the price, as the price should've come down anyway thanks to not including external 5G chip and using still selling those damned exynos chips and charging the same price as the superior SD variant. The only thing I liked about this gen samsung smartphone is that they FINALLY ditched the curved screen. It was never a good idea anyway, and they held on to that for years is kind of amazing. Oh, and the "glastic" back panel feels good to the touch. And that's about it. It's not much of a change, and outside of US, still disappointing as always. Samsung, let me be real, LSI sucks. Disband it and just buy SD chips internationally. it'll save you R&D cost, and reduce the whole complexity of your business.

@cooolhunk007 It gets warm but thats because im playing games at high res. But if anything happens to it then its no loss to me since it was a gift given to me. I could easily sell it and buy a mid-range. But this is my first flagship device and im happy with it. But no serious issues from my experience with it.

Samsung camera software, a total mess, a lot of inconsistency, noise at low iso and exposure, weak processing to remove noise. They are behind Apple, Huawei, Google at least 3 years, before p20 pro era. Try s21 with pixel camera app in low/medium light condition, or indoor, you will be blown away, it's like having another sensor. Instead of pushing MS crap on their phones(onedrive, office and others), they should make a partnership with Google to improve their camera software. If you are trying for several years in a row to improve you camera software, processing, and you are not able to do it, then ask for help(from Google).

Thank you for the review! I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and I might upgrade. The only thing I don't like is that the cameras on these phones have only 12 megapixels, where is at one point they were making them 14. If they could do it before, I don't know why they can't do it again, especially for the price that they charge.

I have an issue with "Hey Google". I am using Samsung S21, my issue is when I lock my phone with airplane mode off, I can say "Hey Google" Turn on Airplane Mode and it turns on Airplane Mode. The weird thing is when I ask my friend to repeat what I do but using their voice they can do it. They can turn on Airplane Mode on my phone which is dangerous because my phone can be stolen and if the thief know this, it will cause "find my phone/find my device" to become less effective in our attempt to save our phone. I also have video recording of me trying to use different voice tone to try turning on Airplane mode on my phone.

I was huge fan of galaxy until i got the S20 ultra what a piece of crap camera, all my pictures are blurry , it can not focus at all, i've tried everything ,software updates, reboot the app, etc and nothing my pictures still blurry, i am about to give up in this s20 ultra and get something else, i was looking the pixel 5,but doesn't have expendable memory, can you recommend me a " simple" phone just like the pixel 5 , can take good "simple" pictures just like the pixel 5, but has expendable memory to use my memory card? ( i take a lot of pictures because my job )I will appreciate it..

Galaxy S21 got bad reviews on AT&T and T-Mobile, it's less than 2 stars from user reviews. MKBHD is super biased and always recommends Samsung while trashing LG, kind of odd really. Samsung removed headphone jack, micro SD slot, Samsung Pay MST, no charger in box, plastic back.. if they charged $200 extra, then I would pay that and I think it's worth having.

My biggest issue with android. Ever since the debacle of a mess that was the end of the year update last year...the os has still been buggy as hell. I still can't hear when I have a phone call cause no matter what I do the phone ring tone volume is always nothing. It's still buggy as closing my map over and over because it wants to put the phone ahead of it...etc etc. Fix android and I'll upgrade.
