FatForkBelly, 22 Dec 2020It's much cheaper than S20 trio. A $100 bill in 2020 is more value than a $100 bill in 20... moreI've heard of silly comments.. But this REALLY is clutching at straws.. crazy comment.
Garret1976, 22 Dec 2020Poco X3 is a nice phone but don't over estimate it. It has his flaws too. 120hz is a gimm... moreEMUI is Huawei u know and for me it's more user friendly vs Sammy OS.
I have the Mate 20X and the S20 ultra to compare with.
And Huawei have less scam vs Sammy to... I must say I prefer a Huawei flagship for sure and my Mate 20X battery time is insane... Still yes. I bought it in December 2018 and it's still a powerhouse of a phone.
No more Sammies for me, unless they clean up their messy scam.
It's much cheaper than S20 trio. A $100 bill in 2020 is more value than a $100 bill in 2021, especially after the pandemic. Everything is going up in price even food.
Can't wait to test the S21. Seems promising with the new Exynos and fkat screen.
To the haters. I always buy the best phones available and after years of experience with Android and iPhone, I can say that the Galaxy S line are the best allround devices in real world usage. Not saying they're the best because I like iphone, OnePlus and even Xiaomi phones too but it depends on your needs.
I want a phone which checks all the boxes and not only camera or performance or features.
Anonymous, 22 Dec 2020Hahaha selling 200$ phones Hahaha look at samsung galaxy A12 wich costs 220$ It has a PLS IP... morePoco X3 is a nice phone but don't over estimate it. It has his flaws too. 120hz is a gimmick and can't compare to amoled. OneUI is far more stable and user friendly than EMUI. And I never saw any add in OneUI.
GregLu, 22 Dec 2020Exynos this year will be like the one on S7 and S8, much more capable than Exynos 990 ;)
Le... moreExynos 990 was relatively the best Exynos according to Anandtech. It's just that it couldn't compete with the Snapdragon if you look at efficiency. The Mali GPU was the biggest culprit.
the stronger exynos and lower pricing are good strategy for samsung)
sixtymes, 22 Dec 2020"Perhaps "forced" by Google..." why would you say such a thing? Given the nature of their relation recently and how Google "asked" to Samsung to drop some app in Android for instance, also the parnertship with Microsoft for example, I wouldn't be surprise at all if Google asked that they drop the MicroSD on their high end device (Since they don't even care about MicroSD for Android, see Pixel and before that Nexus), to provide "smooth and secure experience" like Apple with no expansion slot. Why leave the choice of users ? A few years back, I would totally understand this since most of MicroSD were crap on the market. Now ? 90-100 Mo/s R/W speed from Samsung EvoPlus for example. For how much ? 70 EUR for 512 Go, 90 without any promotion. So, who will win the most when the phone is phone and/or if you choose the beefier storage version for 50 EUR more, that cost them roughly ... 10 ? Increased profit > limitations of choice for user > closed circuit and finally no need for MicroSD. I think they should leave the choice to user, that's what Android is about too.
notafanboy, 22 Dec 2020 €849 for Exynos... Ha.. Haha.. Hahahaha!Exynos this year will be like the one on S7 and S8, much more capable than Exynos 990 ;)
Let's see but the main problem here is the MicroSD slot missing ... If Samsung starts removing features like this (Perhaps "forced" by Google with their new partnership ?), that's the end of it, given the price of 512 Go today (With very good and decent speed) ... That's really a bummer.
fruitcake, 22 Dec 2020O.k Samsung phones are easy to set up an use,but every year they get expensive,Samsung thinkin... moreI have to agree that the exynos 990 has worse performance than sd 845 after throttling and even less than 835
But As I saw, I think this exynos seems promising, it doesn't have moongose cores
Exynos 990 heats 15 degree more than 865 and has 20% less battery wich means if you have 20% battery in snapdragon then in exynos its 0%
But I think this one maybe different and close enough to snapdragon,
If that's gonna be true the only deal breakers are, PLASTIC IN A 1000$ PHONE AND 25W
EVEN MY MI 9 HAS 27W
EVEN A 220$ POCO X3 HAS 33W
And the s21 doesn't come with a charger those are the only deal breakerw for me if exynos is equivalent this year to snapdragon
BUT IF IT IS STILL AS WORSE AS EXYNOS BEFORE IT
I SWEAR I WILL NOT BUY IT EVEN AT 400$ to use it
And I WILL CHOOSE THE POCO F2 PRO
SOC IS SUOER IMPORTANT FOR ME,
[deleted post]more like intelligent people are knowing what their money should've got them.. or are your comment referring to yourself?
Annas, 22 Dec 2020S21 ultra takes the note 20 ultra starting price
In 2 years the s22 ultra will start from 200... moreHahaha selling 200$ phones
Hahaha look at samsung galaxy A12 wich costs 220$
It has a PLS IPS HD display LOL not even an LCD, I don't know what is this trash PLS and it has HELIO P35 hahahahahaha
It doesn't worth 100$
Just compare it with POCO X3 wich has stereo speakers and a very very very good quality 120hz FULL HD LCD DISPLAY and 732g instead of P35
And do you know that one ui HAS NOW ADS ON IT, YES ADS ON SYSTEM APP AND MUSIC APP IN ONE UI
AT LEAST IN MIUI you can disable all of them in 1 minute and then enjoy your 2 or 3 years of 1000000% better specs
Absolutely outrageous price now to get the top S flagship.. along with S21/21+ that are hardly any different to the S20 series.
I was always excited to have the latest and greatest. But i decided to get the amazing S20 fe for £500! with a great 3x optical zoom camera, fab main one too!
I would have too be MAD to want to spend £800 extra for a flagship with slightly bigger screen, slightly bigger battery.. and a 10x optical camera. Who are Samsung now kidding with these prices?!.. you don't even get headphones and charger included if you believe the rumours.. and a wireless headphone "pro" model that STILL can't even do HiRes audio. No thanks! I really hope the S21 ultra is a total flop and shows Samsung this is getting rediculous now!
AnonD-804996, 22 Dec 2020S21 and S21+ will have, wait for it... PLASTIC backs. Only Ultra will have glass back. Plastic... moreSales of their flagships were lower than 2019.
Midranges do not bring much profits.
They are cutting costs on 21/21+ to cover the hole left by lower sales of 20 series.
S21 and S21+ will have, wait for it... PLASTIC backs. Only Ultra will have glass back. Plastic backs on flagships for 850-1050€. What is this, year 2010? I don't car what's "better" for some who apparently drop their phone 55 times a day. It's the fact they charge so much for a phone made of freaking plastic that's churned out for cost lower than peanut shells, but they still charge it like they need to melt sand. It's absurd. Also behold how S21 lineup will come without charge brick. Coz Smasung is also "eco friendly". Lets just forget they were mocking Apple for their removal of charger just few months ago.
