If you're getting an S21, what phone are you replacing? Also, do you think there will be a new Galaxy Note this year? they can't replace it with just THIS kinda of s-pen right???

Upgrading to s21+ from the OnePlus 8. Also, I've never owned a Samsung galaxy phone too. Is the upgrade worth it?

@RS S got it for 2 months now and cannot be more satisfied to be honest. I have none of the issue your are reporting ... maybe its the exynos version ?? The phone size really depends on hand size so thats just a preference i had the s10e and would never go back. For the battery its the only phone that does not need to charge during the day which for my high usage is impressive. The adpative screen makes everything looks smooth as hell, althought i would prefer to be able to choose 60hz 90hz or 120hz . For the jack i honestly dont care anymore since got the buds pro fro free. But at the end if it wasnt from the carrier deal it would of not been worth it.

@vincent coreau you maybe making a mistake. S21 Ultra is having too many issues, heating issue, adaptive refresh rate causing startles and battery life is not efficient enough. It does not have headphone jack, micro sd slot, not too mention it is a very large and heavy phone which is not comfortable to hold. I don't know how they can justify the high price for this phone.

This probs won't get traction bc I know I'm 2 months late. But like. I have an s10 and Verizon offering $440 for trade in upgrade. Like. I know it really is worth is but I still want my headphone jack and SD card slot. Should I just give into the new normal and get the ultra or wait and hope they bring back the dumb details I want next year?

I think the charger is something that should be able included with their phone. The average customer that switches for example from an iphone to this would get stuck with a 5 watt charger and no earbuds, come on. If you want to be environmentally friendly or don't need the stuff then you should a discount but for the price these phones are going for they should come with the charger and buds. I see this as greed by these companies to make more money per phone while providing less value and claiming its to save the environment.

the plastic i don't really feel as if its expensive but i like it for the fact that when u drop glass it doesn't break but cracks so it look more broken. as to the feel of it i put my phone in a see through case so i don't actually feel it. As to the camera bump i got the grey 1 so i don't see it much as its same colour as the body.

I will never understand why people knock Samsung's portrait mode. It is objectively better than any iPhone portrait mode on the market. I used to use a Samsung A51 for portrait mode shots and it almost always perfectly captures a blurred background even down to really fine detail with thin hairs. You nailed it with the video quality thing but you're dead ass wrong about portrait mode.

@namcicle I think that iPhones take excellent photos and the portrait mode is great, but I really prefer the hard line look that Samsung went with. I think you're totally right that photos aren't as objective as we like to think. Samsung's post processing is generally worse than Apple's, but I like this feature in particular more.
namcicle 19 dagar sedan
The thing is...photos arent objective about half the time. I personally prefer the iPhone's portraits because it reminds me of a real DSLR, but I love Samsung's look with that extra punch and contrast, but I guess you can have a different preference, and I can definitely see why you might like Samsung's portrait mode more.

I don't know. These new samsung phones are so weird. Both S and Note. I remember in the past, when I have heard galaxy Note, I knew it was going to give the best of what you can get regardless of the configuration. Now some are plasticky, some are 1080p, don't have sd card slots, no jack, flat screens, cameras are way worse than competition. In past generations the gap was smaller. I don't know, I want to upgrade my Note 9, but everything is just a compromise. Note 9 was the last samsung phone that had everything inside that you could buy and say it literally has no big flaws...

I use the camera more for video calls than taking pictures or videos. I think the camera test should including testing on apps like Zoom Video. My IPhone X renders terrible video specially when there is light coming from my back compared to my ROG 2 which renders sharp & Clean video. iPhone renders grainy video on zoom.

The lack of accessories is not an issue of value, but an issue of: The customer don't matter. If you are a prestigious brand, you would aspire to deliver the most prestigious package to the consumer. What if Tesla stopped selling wheels? What if Starbucks stopped selling coffee in cups? What if architects design schools without classrooms? What if McDonald's sold you cheeseburgers without cheese? It's sad that in 2021, basic things like basic customer service and product essentials have to be taught.

Floating Peaks
Floating Peaks Månad sedan
How can you legitimise a company releasing a substandard tech product just to make profit, tech is about advancement. The only good phone in the lineup is the ultra and its just not about zooming in or the battery life. Its just the best phone in the line up and the only one where samaung didn't skimp, except the sd card slot. But there are good reasons why it needs to be removed. Sd cards slow down a phone and most people do or really should move storage into the cloud as they usually own more then one device.

Since google went to that back gesture with swiping from the edges, the curved display with a case that allows edge swiping, is the way to go. With a flat edge you get stickiness when swiping from the edge. I have the OnePlus 8 with curved edges and loving the back swiping from the edge. I agree, prior to the gesture navigation, curved edges were a gimmick 👍

At this price, we'll no-brainer time! Sure some compromises were made, no charger, micro, ear buds. Well, at this price I can overlook them!
