No chargers no earphones and thus a 250 eur price increase compared to its predecessor.

You talk about generation? Well, the price difference in 64 and 256GB models of iPhone are an entire generation difference in Android terms (S10 vs S20 for example).
And no memory card support, not even fast ones. You need a DAC adaptor just to listen to music.
With no freedom to even attach a mouse, or do programming on your own, or save a file, can't even take an offline backup your own way, you're definitely playing with one of the best toys in the world.
I think no one even from Android world should deny that iPhone is actually the world's best toy.
I humbly request that we must give this much credit.

We all know Geekbench exists solely to make your ToyPhones' and ToyPads' crippled functionality feel better about their paper-only speeds. All other benchmarks show how wimpy and crippled Apple's A14 Anemic SoC is compared to even the SD 865 and Kirin 9000. Lol.
with the big companies jumping towards no chargers (because they want to sell their wireless chargers; and not because they effing care about the environment.) they forgot something important, you need to plug your wireless charger first to a power supply so what they are doing is to sell you more peripherals so that they gain more monies.
I am quite disappointed with this trend but there's nothing we can do about it... maybe a few lawsuits to the company might correct their crooked ways.

Petet, 13 Jan 2021That camera design is really not nice looking.Right...
It's now very obvious that flagship phones are now directed for the truly rich people only, people who won't think twice in spending money as they still have plenty in wallets / bank account or huge income. As rich people can afford more than $1000 for a phone, obviously a missing charger is not a limitation as they already have much money! The same with the lack of expendable storage.
I just hope this "trend" won't creep on midrange phones. Midrange phones already have surpassed flagships in terms of small features (radio FM, audio jack, expendable storage, usually larger batteries). Ironic that midrange phones have more extra features than flagships nowadays.

silbier.hell, 12 Jan 2021As sony xperia 1 user, I kind of agree. Sony, LG and Motorola can do even better than last yea... moreI wish Sony's current linup were a little broader instead of tall.
They are too narrow for me.

IPhone is so much ahead in heavy tasks. And S21 won't change that, like the Geekbench score shows Android OEMs are atleast generation behind.

I believe that not including a charger is pretty a nice move in the sense of reducing electronic waste. You can always use your old charger to charge your new phone, given you have been using a samsung phone. But not including the charger must be equal to a reduction in cost of the phone or else this is non-sense.
Everyone laugh at Apple then proceed to follow.
Hey fanboys, this year Apple will remove port from one of their phone. And completely esim.
Get ready to laugh and get silenced again. Ya ya someone may have done a portless phone before.. but if Apple does it.. prepare to follow thru like a slave.

GAMIRSFM, 12 Jan 2021This is where the Samsung died, first it was the headphone jack, now is the charger in the box... moreI'll admit that the charger not being in the box is a silly idea but the actual deal breaker for me (not sure about other people) is the lack of expandable memory and the subpar display.
I understand if you want to keep costs down on a the A / M series phones but not the S series.
Wouldn't be surprised if they skip out on the S Pen for the Note line and include a rubber finger condom as a replacement.
Natural Selection, 12 Jan 2021me too,i just feel cheated by them.im angery,frustrated and confused after all of those years ... moreIt's too bad that the network carrier I have been with for 15 years or so only pushes Samsung or iS#it phones.
Other than that it's lower end LG and Motorola but I don't want to go back to 4gb ram and weak processors.
