  • Update $1199* for S21 Ultra! 😬

    • Yes!

    • Actually about $1,300 hundred for the s21 Ultra! Been using a phantom silver Ultra for almost 2 months now.

    • I picked up the 21 ulta for 449 with my trade in and sale

    • Can I win this S21 ultra

    • I gave you a like, because you mentioned my favorite flat screens.

  • Which phone is the best for long lasting?? 1. S21 plus 2. I phone 12 pro max???

  • god too many phones i just dont know i only have two kidneys so I have to make a decision

  • When is S22 out?

  • Why the sunglasses ???

  • I love how he always looks cool in the thumbnail but a total ugly nerd in the videos

  • Wondering if i should stick with my s10, jump to the 21 or wait for the 22 series... thoughts?

  • Love the S21+ verses the S21 (price is close too) I am just hung up on the difference in battery life and picture quality vs the S20Fe (Help me decide) I value camera quality, storage, picture taking and battery life (Presently have the S9+)

  • BEWARE OF THESE ½ REVIEWEWS: They hide a lot of stuffs ....... E.g : To use step counter / heart rate sensor etc you need *Samsung health* app. Samsung health app since April 2021 wants permissions to your - Telephone - Contacts - Camera - GPS etc ... Why does a step counter need these permissions ??? Without these permissions you wont be able to use Samsung Health and without this app. your Heart Rate sensor etc are useless on a $1200 + Phone or your Galaxy watch.

  • samsung fingerprint scanner suck. face reg suck at night time.

  • i have the s21 plus. the back doesnt feel like glass. lol. this just tells you that sheeps will always follow with whatever is said. give you a peice of shit and tellita gold and you still agree.

  • No micro-sd card? See ya 🖕

  • No charger, no headphones, no thanks!

  • Samsung are taking the piss micro sim , no headphone jack, no charger, no headphones...😡😡 this is the first time I'm not going to upgrade to Samsung...need to find another phone

  • I save things on sd cards. Now what am I going to do?

  • My s10 cannot software update & I had to factory reset it several times to get it to work normally. Now it does work but can still not install software update & sometimes apps keep crashing. I really didn't want to get a new phone but since my s10 is being problematic I am having to decide between buying s20 or s21. Anyone has any advice or thoughts?

  • I just ordered the S21 Ultra. Love that camera.

  • S21 Ultra is currently $999.99 on amazon.

  • Me watching this on my samsung s21 ultra

  • The plastic on the s21 is a turn off for me ngl, I was gonna buy an s21.

  • i love the cameras on the ultra!

  • also samsung give us up to 600$off on trade

  • No Micro SD. That was a deal breaker for me. Will wait for next one.

  • got a note 8 should i upgrade to s21?

  • I renewed my plan recently with s21+ lm very disappointed about no charger & no ear phones. It wasn't mentioned at Vodafone, I didn't ask bcoz I assumed they would be part of. Every phone I've ever had came with these items, especially at the price it is. You no what they say about assuming things.

  • You never need 4K resolution on couple inch screen. Even 800x600 wouold look good on it

  • What a joke! No charge or earbuds for all that wonga, taking the piss good and proper. 👎🏻 Samsung

  • Won't be getting any because I've a sd card with 3,000 song's 50 film's and video's and loads of photos which I've no intention of loosing so upgrade to s20 or a52 when my contract ends.

  • Hello what buy i need help S20ultra exynos vs s21+ 8/256 exynos???

  • People saying we do not need sdcard, my personal experience, and a reason to see s21 videos. My daughter spilled water on my 2-year-old s9+ which had basically the same IP rating, and to my surprise water entered into the chipset and Samsung is charging half the new mobile amount for repairs. SO I was the same idiot who used to think why SD card, Now I regret why I did not use an SD card to save all my data there. It's useless once the mobile gets damaged, If SD card, I would have not faced this difficulty.. It is so sad to lose all that data and really painful.

  • Take the sun gloss off lol ur insaid the room not under the sun 🤣

  • so if i want the best phone i have to deal with the pain in the butt curved screens?🤦

  • I am looking for video recording , indoor vlog, Please tell me ghe result of video rec same or different between s21 & s21ultra?

  • iphones better tho

  • Still have Samsung Galaxy s8plus man

  • Who's here because they don't know what to get now that LG dropped out of the cell phone market? :(

  • Why does samsung still suck at fingerprint sensor.

  • Was absolutely pissed I didn't get a charger I thought it was a totally liberty I got the S21 but sending it back tomorrow to get the ultra

  • I switched from a Note 5 to the S8 and then the S9. It seemed the video and photo quality of the S8/9 was not as good as the Note 5 so I switched back. You asked what to compare the S21/Ultra to. How about a comparison to let us older phone lovers know how much better we will find these new phones to be. Thanks. Great video.

  • I switched to the s21 plus from my iPhone 11 Pro and its honestly way better and the only features that seem missing are I message and facetime but I never used those anyway as everyone I speak to uses Snapchat; other than that there are more features on the s21 plus like 120 hz and wireless power share, it also does have faster charging but you only really need to charge both devices once a day so that isn't really a big difference. As I still have my iPhone, going back to it makes it feel old compared to the galaxy due to the bezels and notch and the galaxy looks way more aesthetically pleasing than the iPhone. Most people I know are considering switching after seeing my phone compared to theirs and overall I'd say if your an iPhone user it is worth the switch as you won't be missing anything really, the software is a bit more bubbly on iPhone but but the Samsung is on par also - hope this helps

  • $1899 for the S21 ultra 500gb here in Australia from the Samsung website, then add 69$ for the 45w charger lol, no sd card slot, no charger or head phones for what you're paying for this phone Looks like a great breaker is nothing comes with thr device

  • I actually hate hate hate it when they make it appear that I zoomed in when I change from one camera to another. I like it to appear as though I am using 3 separate camera angles like it did originally on the S10. When they updated and changed it I was pissed 😤.

  • Over priced phones

  • It's obvious that some people living with HSV are used to antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the HSV virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I came across some bloggers that narrated stories online on how they was cured from HSV, HPV, HIV, Fibroid, Cancer, Arthritis, Hepatitis, Lupus, Ulcer, Stroke, Epilepsy, etc after using Dr List Herbal Cure who lived in Florida. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was cured from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to cure me. I has promised to keep telling people about the good news of Dr. Abumere. Please feel free to share your problems with him and don't forget to tell him I refer you to Him. Thanks.

  • im not understanding what the primary sensors MP number difference really means. 12mp vs 108mp but the images look about the same to me. edit* also including telephoto lens numbers+selfie. i figured higher numbers meant better images but they seem the same to me.

  • A point to note between rounded and flat glass is durability. The flat screen will be a LOT harder to break than the rounded on a drop

  • I hate the glass backs I'm glad I got the regular 21. The back glass always breaks so easily and make your phone look like shit. My s9 is the only phone glass backed phone where the glass didn't break

  • Crazy how they can't even include a 5000mAh battery in such expensive phones, even some of their lower end products have 5000mAh batteries.

  • I bought S21+ yesterday with Exynos chipset. I am amazed! Just amazing phone! No overheating, in performance is beast, display awesome, great battery life, very high build quality!

  • I finally replaced my S8 galaxy last week. with the S21 ultra 5G. So much better.

  • S21 plus 256GB for me, the ultra variant looks way too big for the auld jeans pocket. I'm not a gamer, it's all about photography, music and movie streaming so coming from an S8 Plus it'll be a welcome upgrade. Great upload yet again Saf me auld son. 🤜🏻🤛🏻

  • Why does he have a british accent

  • I think that sucks with no hesdphones and charger....

  • Which one I would pick? Nokia 3310 is the best option. It comes with charger.

  • No SD and no charger like WTF!!

  • just got mine.. let's see how it goes... hope the battery last longer than my S9

  • So do any of these 3 models overheat less than the other? I want to buy an unlocked version from Best Buy but worried cause s21 series sometimes overheat?

  • My s8+ is turning 3 years old this October, can't wait to upgrade!!

  • Pay this much for a phone and they don't include a charger, fml.

  • Flat display meaning I can put glass screen protectors now like on iPhones? My problem with my S10 is I dropped it and cracked the screen and found out it wasn't an easy fix!

  • S9/S9+ has a better display... by a lot. S9+ has 1440 x 2960 pixels, 18.5:9 ratio (~529 ppi density) vs S21+ having only 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~394 ppi density).

  • am i the only one who read laser af as " laser AS FUCK "

  • I got the S21+ 5G phone a few days ago and absolutely hate it but I loved your review. the fingerprint scammer is a lot slower than my other Samsung phones I have had in the past, I only wished I would have seen this video before I got the phone. I got this to replace my S9+ but I think I will keep it for another year and send the S21+ 5G back.

  • I just traded a note 9 for a s21 plus and it really feels like a downgrade.

  • How come they keep using such low megapixels for the ultrawide cameras?? Ultrawide shots capture more in each picture you take. As soon as you zoom in just a little the quality and details degrade far far quicker than the main sensor. They have been using 12mp ultrawide for way to long now.

  • S10+ > S21+ ..... Nothing better then paying for major downgrades no headphone jack, no expandable memory, no UHD screen, no ultrawide selfie camera, no programmable extra button, same amount of RAM, No heart rate sensor, No blood oxygen level meter, no adjustable aperture. Sounds like $1,000 if I've ever heard and no charger in the box or headphones ridiculous do i returned my 21+ and bought a refurbished S10+ after I broke my first one

  • I got 400 off s21 for switching to xfinity. Love it!

  • Hej Supersaf. What is the main differences between the S21 series and the S20 FE (5g) edition? As far as I can see, they do have a lot of the same components :)

  • S20+ or s21?🤔

  • When I got my S21 no charger block had to get a wireless charger which I don't mind but really 😳

  • Phone they're getting way too expensive. And they're doing it intentionally because we still paying for that ridiculous price. 😒Not me anymore. I going to start buying A51 or A71 series. Bye bye galaxy S whatever and Note whatever 😊

  • The shades made this hard for me to watch.

  • Great very detailed review !

  • Just got a new s21, not happy about not getting a charger! I like the phone!

  • UPDATE!!! 03/15/2121 I got an email from Samsung saying that my trade in phone was not what they were expecting. I even called Samsung to verify that my phone was the 5G because I wasn't sure. They told me it was and that I was good to go. Now I'm Being told that it is not, and that I'm going to be charged $550. WTF is with this company. People need to stop buying Samsung products because of the issues they're having and Samsung throwing us to the curb!!!! Do not buy the Galaxy S21!!! I got the phone on Tuesday and found out today that the Bluetooth doesn't work. I called Samsung Tech. support and found Bluetooth to be faulty. She said that because I've had the phone for a few days, that they would do an exchange. I was transferred... I was told that Samsung does NOT do exchanges or repairs. I have to return the phone and then buy the phone all over again after the return goes through. I set up a Verizon account with insurance, and a partial payment plan. Now I have to get rid of the account, and then start from scratch with another phone. I've always bought the Galaxy S models for phones, but this is Bullsh#t, I'm now moving to Apple. Never again. Bad customer service and policies!!!

  • Lol plastik backplate is way better than glas. Less expensive to change and better durable. Doesnt crack

  • Please share - Eco Gravity Charger. Cable free charger Device.

  • I love the curved screen that's what makes samsung. Thats its identity I hope they never get rid of the curved screen really makes the samsung stand out but they can includethe optionof not having a curved screen ... Quick question out of curiosity why the sun glasses? Every single time.

  • 3.5mm audio jack available on these or no?

  • Can u compare it with the A2s plz an the s21ultra

  • 11 hz???

  • I have the s 21plus purplish color so far so good but I wanted a older phone the styles 20 they wanted more down for it but over all the s21p isn't to shab

  • I need ultra wide angle camera. Otherwise I'm still super content with my note 9. Can't decide

  • just got my s21 ultra in the black color a few days ago, and if anyone is thinking about switching or upgrading to the new device... I sincerely recommend it. The video experience to the smooth animations and an extremely fast response, it's truly an amazing piece of technology. And it feels far more premium than any Samsung device every made.

  • nothing is big deal though until they charge this much money

  • This Guy can be trusted, he is wearing sunglasses recording a yt video....

  • Where can I find that blue case?

  • Awesome review mate very thorough

  • Still going strong with my Note 8 back from Fall 2017 and battery has been still great. Been wanting the Note 20 Ultra but I wasn't as impressed then now this S21 series not really much to impress. SD Card and Headphone jack man come on. Maybe Note 21 will bring it back....

    • My Note 8 js is a fucking Terminator!! I've unintentionally beaten the shit outta this phone and it's still going strong!! Was thinking of upgrading to the S21 Ultra or +, but I'm not a fan of some of the "downgrades". Definitely not impressed either.. Might get the Note 20 or S20+ instead.

  • Are those William Painter sunglasses?

  • To everyone complaining about no Micro SD slot...use a Cloud or get an external hard drive!!!! It isn't that hard. An external hard drive is better anyway considering the amount of space you can have on one of them and once you transfer everything over to the EHD you don't have to worry about losing everything if your phone get's stolen or broken. It's 2021...there are PLENTY of other and BETTER options for storage then a simple Micro SD card. As for the headphone's called a dongle. Don't want to use a dongle? There a TONS of wireless headphones out there. They aren't simply getting rid of these things because they want to give you less...they are just moving in the direction of Cloud storage and wireless technology because that's the direction the entire TECH industry is headed in.

  • Thankyu sir the way yu done this video yu have explained in very detail now I know which one to go for

  • I am in between s21 plus and ultra...what do you recommend?

  • Lol who else watching this vedio on your S21 ultra ???

  • They all don't have gorilla glass... Not the best way to start buddy.

  • $800-$1200 phone...doesn't come with a charger, WTF?

    • Just like stinky steve Jobs...

    • Lol just like iPhone

  • Watching on my new S21

  • My s9+ has dual pixel af but the s21 don't!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!

  • I buyed s21 plus just because it has a flat display

  • There are a lot more colours for the ultra now
