In my review, I noted that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is the best-looking phone I’ve seen in a long time. But I also noticed that the S21 Ultra lacks some of the things that make Android phones so great. It lacks a microSD card slot, and it also lacks MST payment tech and an AC adapter. Then again, it’s also missing a slide-over bar, which is great for multimedia users.
I also noted that the camera is very good – the Samsung Ultra has five big holes that can be used as selfie-sticks if you’d like. The phone has four cameras and one laser-focus system. Nevertheless, I didn’t find it particularly useful for video chat. I didn’t feel the need to record video calls on this phone, but I did enjoy using it while watching videos.
The screen on the Samsung S21 Ultra is also great, and the S Pen can act as a high-tech notepad. Its screen has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, which is the same as that used in graphic designers’ tablets. It has an advanced note-taking app, Samsung Notes, which turns handwritten words into searchable text. It syncs with Microsoft OneNote and other apps, such as Evernote.
The battery life on the Samsung S21 Ultra is above average. It lasts a full day and a half on average. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time playing video games, then the S21 Ultra will be a great choice. The slick screen and Exynos 2100 processor make it an ideal mobile gaming phone. But one thing you need to know before buying is its battery life.
