    I had this great idea for samsung to do you could put your age id for pubs and stuff so instead of having to carry your id around its there on your phone

    Is it just me or does anyone else find the indoor photos in moderate lighting grainy and of generally poor quality? I moved from a pixel 4XL and so far I'm not overly impressed by the photo quality of my S21 Ultra. Nice screen though...

    To me one plus 7t Pro, 8 Pro has just as good of a display as the S21 ultra, or even slightly better and the software experience, too me is better from the one ➕. I just gave up my 7t Pro for the S21 ultra and I wonder if I made a mistake....

    I was ready to buy this until I heard no expandable storage and no charger or headphones. Sorry Sumsung no upgrade until you wise up! Don't follow Apple!

    I heard they got rid of the magnetic secure transmission on the US models (this is what let you use Samsung Pay on literally any credit card terminal). This was the only reason I used Samsung Pay, if they don't bring it back for the S22 I guess I will be switching to Google Pay.

    You spend all that money for the best top of the line Phone and they don't include a Charger or Cord? I personally think that consumers have more power then these companies and if we all got together and did a Boycott on these new Phones tthey would get the idea!!

  • Piglet6256

    What i liked about the Note 8, is the rectangle shape and the looks, it looked so drooling good :), the pen well, i rarely used it, only simple writing but never the advanced features anyways. But I'm gonna have to get used to note having a Samsung note anymore but an S :)

  • Piglet6256

    i'm getting it next monday :), i had a note 8 and i was tempted to go to the latest Note 20 ultra, but its last yrs model. The Note 21 is still unsure or for sure months away if they gonna bring it. But this will keep me happy till the Surface Duo v2.0 (if its improved then the way we like it). Still miss the windows phones, but this is as close as it gets, so i guess its Android. Dislike IOS although the phones itself are great, but i dont like the OS and the almost communistic Apple environment :D


    S30 or S22??

    Can the s21 cast to tv without using Chromecast or a router, i.e. just using WiFi data? I don't have a router, just use my unlimited data on T-Mobile. I'm cheap, just use my data for internet. Been using a Netgear Push2TV to cast to tv, hoping s21 can cast using the Push2TV.

    This is my first time checking out one of your videos, great comparison video btw, I have a couple of questions thought, I’m an iPhone kind of girl you can say that’s what I preferred mostly, but I loved to have a Samsung phone before when Apple didn’t make big phones which was prior to iPhone 6, so I got a Samsung galaxy note 3 at the time, but I hated the ads that would keep popping up and there was no way to block them , not even Samsung can help with that ! And also battery was draining fast even though I was using it as a back up phone , no gaming or shooting videos or anything that would justify that , did you have any of these issues with this one? Also i have heard before that iPhones and Apple products are so safe that you don’t need anti-virus or any security program apps to protect your info and privacy , and that’s not the case with Samsung phones and it’s not safe without anti-virus programs but I don’t know if it would be secured even with the help of those? What is your experience or information about that please?

    Marcus, I know you are busy, but please look into the ultrasonic sensor on the Exynos S21 Ultra. It is NOT ultrasonic, it is exactly the same as on my trusty old Note 10+ I made a ALgone video to show my trying about 100x to scan my left thumb... just pathetic, and very annoying. I returned my S20 Ultra after 2 days, returned my Note 20 Ultra after one day, and will be returning my S21 Ultra tomorrow. @UpgQ

    6:00 Give me break, how are you suppose to shoot 8k videos if your storage gets filled by shooting 8k. The S21 Ultra was so close to being a perfect phone if the hadn't removed the sd slot. Stupid move by Samsung for not including a micro sd...I miss the 1.5TB expandable feature. Dame it Samsung get your shit together.

    I dislike this trend of 3-4 cameras. I just need 1 main. Main cameras are percectly capable of taking macros, or zooming, for that matter. Not that I would need zoom much. Well, I can justify a 1 extra wide camera for the scenery, its nice to have, but that's it. The rest is just making phones more expensive

    How are you supposed to charge you phone now that no charger is sent? No headphones either?? Paying upwards of 1k to get less? And people accept that?? How much more do you have to pay to be able to charge your damn phone and get headphones? No value no help to the consumer just ripping off the Benjamin's off of people like theres no tomorrow. It's like buying a damn car with no gas tank. Next they'll sell us the phones in parts so you pay for everything separated and build it yourself. This is BS. No one needs 17 cameras on the back it looks ridículous. Im pretty sure that people who value image quality and recording would just prefer to buy a pro camera because in these phones it's all about the "novelty" of slapping countless cameras and the performance isn't worth the space it occupies and in my opinion it looks ugly. I prefer the look of the other cheaper versions. These companies must burst with laughter and enjoyment on how they actually manage to give less and still charge big for their products.

    I still have an S9+ and I'll probably upgrade this year. I wish the S21 base model had a 512GB storage option. Losing expandable storage hurts so much. Most likely I'll end up getting the Ultra, but I am not excited to have an even bigger phone.
