Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Review

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra

Samsung’s “Ultra” smartphones are intended to be the total zenith of the organization’s (non-collapsing) portable innovation. Thus the Galaxy S21 Ultra — the third Ultra smartphone after the S20 and Note 20 Ultras — saves not very many costs. The cost is lower than previously, beginning at $1,199.99, yet the actual smartphone is an ideal illustration of what happens when Samsung goes hard and fast.

It’s additionally an ideal illustration of how Samsung regularly whiffs on its first attempt at something yet goes ahead at any rate, at last accomplishing the first vision it couldn’t the first run through. The first Galaxy S20 Ultra from a year ago guaranteed considerably more than its parts could accomplish. The Note 20 Ultra fixed the most exceedingly awful bugs yet didn’t improve picture quality. Up to this point, the “ultra” line hasn’t been particularly ultra.

This year, I’m unable to discover significant deficiencies with the Galaxy S21’s equipment. (Programming, shockingly, is another story.) The S21 Ultra is an enormous smartphone and a costly one, so it will not interest many — yet if you’re OK with those characteristics, it is additionally the best Android smartphone at present.

Rarely the plan of a Galaxy leader is one of the fundamental attractions, however, Samsung avoided that pattern a year ago with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which is perhaps the most flawless smartphone the organization has at any point put out. All things considered, the Note 20 Ultra had a lovely standard plan – chunks of glass on the front and back, metal as an afterthought, and a variety of camera sensors arranged in a different lodging at the back. That last part is the place where Samsung has switched things up with the Galaxy S21 arrangement.

These smartphones have what Samsung calls the ‘form cut’ plan. The camera lodging is still in fact discrete, however it is presently associated with the metal edge, and there’s even metal on top of the camera lodging. It’s very extraordinary and a much needed refresher, and it’s protected to say Samsung has at long last coordinated with Apple’s plan ability and maybe even succeeded it. Simply ensure you get the Phantom Silver variation if you truly need to flaunt the shape slice plan to your companions, as it doesn’t look that incredible on the Phantom Black variation.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, Design

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra’s cameras stick out from the remainder of the body, yet the wobble when the smartphone is perched on a work area isn’t excessively articulated. The smooth matte completion makes the S21 Ultra dangerous, however, I need to say it’s somewhat simpler to deal with than the Galaxy S20 Ultra.

That is on the grounds that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a touch more limited than its archetype. Its presentation is 0.1 inches more modest, and since cell phone screen sizes are estimated askew, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is marginally smaller too. All that joined with the bent edges at the front and back means a smartphone that is large however not an agony to utilize.

The ports, catches, and speakers on the Galaxy S21 arrangement are as yet in a similar spot they have consistently been, aside from the SIM card plate. For one, there’s no microSD opening on any Galaxy S21 cell phone. Second, the SIM card plate currently lives at the lower part of the smartphone, close to the USB-C port. The actual plate has been updated and now holds two SIMs on inverse sides. This was likely done in view of room limitations, however it recommends the microSD opening may not make a get back with future Galaxy leaders.

Display And S-Pen

Around the front is quite possibly the most noteworthy presentations I’ve seen. It has a Wide Quad HD goal and a variable revive rate somewhere in the range of 10 and 120Hz, which is dictated by what’s on the screen. Furthermore, just all things considered, you can have 120Hz and not endure a shot on goal like the S20 Ultra did. The 6.8-inch display is brilliant and the difference is flawless. Covering the screen, and the back. is Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus.

Under the screen is a bigger ultrasonic unique mark peruser who feels enthusiastic. I struggled telling on the off chance that it was in reality quicker than the one on the S20 Ultra. The presentation additionally has S-Pen support.

Backing for the S-Pen implies you can draw, compose, alter photographs and sign archives on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

I’ve generally been enticed by the Galaxy Note line of smartphones, yet I didn’t know I’d utilize the S-Pen enough to legitimize getting one. In any case, I like the iPad Pro-Apple Pencil approach Samsung took here. Without an S-Pen, you’ll actually appreciate utilizing the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Yet, in case you’re S-Pen inquisitive, you can purchase another one or track down an old S-Pen. Also, there’s a great deal you can do, similar to draw, take notes, and sign records. I love altering photographs and making changes with the S-Pen.

I should note there are a couple of contemplations. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra doesn’t accompany a S-Pen and doesn’t uphold Bluetooth or signal usefulness. For instance, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra can’t send you a warning in the event that you give up your pen. Likewise, the Ultra doesn’t have an underlying space to store an S-Pen, however, Samsung will sell cases for it that incorporate S-Pen stockpiling.


It’s the cameras where the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra stands apart the most against the S21 and S21 Plus. There are a fundamental 108MP wide sensor and 12MP super-wide camera, which is supplemented by a laser auto center sensor.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will cause you to feel like a spy as you zoom in. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max is stuck at 2.5x optical zoom, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra packs two zooming focal points of 3x and 10x optical zoom.

I was stunned how close I got to this sign well across an expressway. At 100x the zoom gets temperamental yet the new Zoom Lock highlight can assist you with getting a steadier shot with simply a tap.

The 108MP primary camera can catch 12-bit HDR photographs with multiple times more extravagant shading information and multiple occasions the unique scope of the S20 Ultra. Furthermore, there’s a 12-digit RAW record alternative in Pro mode.

Battery Life

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra highlights a sizeable 5,000mAh battery. This is a bigger battery than you’ll discover in many gadgets, however, it is as yet outperformed by the 6,000mAh cell in the Asus ROG Phone 3. In any case, the dynamic invigorate rate and out-of-the-container FHD+ goal-setting managed the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra some lovely great battery life.

On lighter days, I got two entire outings of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, finishing the second entire day with about 15% leftover. On heavier days going around the city shooting loads of photographs, recordings, and a little gaming, I got a little more than one entire day. By and large, I anticipate that most people should get a little more than a day and a half from the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra charges at a greatest pace of 25W. This is a fascinating movement from a year ago, when Samsung sold a discretionary 45W charger for the Galaxy S20 Ultra. All things considered, the 45W charger was found to have just a minor impact on in general charging speed, which is likely why Samsung pulled support for it. This is a bummer, as brands like OnePlus, Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi have been pushing charging paces to 30W, 60W, and surprisingly 120W lately. I’d trusted that Samsung would ultimately fire playing get up to speed, however, I expect eliminating the charger from the container will execute or seriously stunt the race for the quickest charging cell phone.

Specifications And Performance

  • Sports Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 in the US, Exynos 2100 somewhere else
  • Starts with 12GB of RAM, yet one choice incorporates 16GB
  • Helpless capacity alternatives with no microSD support

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is quicker for two reasons: it denotes the presentation of spic and span chipsets, and the product has been smoothed out only a tad, with the always developing OneUI 3.0 interface integrated with Android 11.


  • Weight: 227g
  • Measurements: 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9 mm
  • Display size: 6.8-inch
  • Goal: QHD (3200 x 1440)
  • Invigorate rate: 120Hz
  • Pixel thickness: 515ppi
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 888/Exynos 2100
  • Smash: 12GB/16GB
  • Capacity: 128GB/256GB/512GB
  • Back cameras: 108MP + 10MP + 10MP + 12MP
  • Front camera: 40MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh

At the core of each of the three S21 smartphones is one of two fast chipsets: either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 (US) or Samsung’s own Exynos 2100 (pretty much wherever else). While we haven’t done top to bottom next to each other examinations yet (not-so-inconspicuous: indeed, we’ll be refreshing our surveys when we’ve done as such), both appear to be exceptionally smart, regardless of whether the Geekbench 5 scores we’ve gotten don’t exactly have the goods. This is the reason we avoid benchmarking smartphones in such granular detail.

What you’ll need to focus on more are the inner stockpiling sizes. Numerous individuals have been killed by the way that the S21 arrangement does exclude a microSD card opening for expandable capacity, and, to be honest, we’re with you on that. The consideration of microSD spaces consistently made it simpler for us to suggest Samsung over Apple when things were in a dead heat, as you could go for the lower stockpiling size and update later. Not any longer.

The base-level 128GB of inner stockpiling with 12GB of RAM probably won’t be sufficient for everybody. You’ll need to one or the other horse up for the variant with 256GB of capacity and 12GB of RAM, or maximize at 256GB of capacity with 16GB of RAM. The RAM will not make a big deal about a distinction in a smartphone, yet you’ll unquestionably see on the off chance that you run out of extra room.

You’ll have to have a thought of how much space you need ahead of purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra – and that is something that Samsung fans seldom need to consider, as microSD cards were consistently a pleasant fallback plan.

Part of the explanation the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra appears to be smart is the way that Samsung has additionally smoothed out its product interface. With the OneUI 3.0 interface, menus presently toss less pointless windows in your face prior to executing what you need to do. Turning on power save mode, for instance, makes changes right away.

Samsung’s ceaseless Bixby Assistant (the 21st century Microsoft Clippy) is as yet present on the S21 arrangement, however there’s not any more devoted Bixby button, fortunately, so you will not incidentally trigger Bixby Voice. Bixby Today, previous the furthest left menu on Samsung smartphones, is gone, as well. It’s been supplanted by Google Assistant cards (earlier Google Now) that have a talent for surfacing more significant data to your day.
