my wife is still very happy with her S20. what would have persuaded me to trade-in her S20 for an S21 is if it had the same camera setup as the ultra, but it does not. The ultra is just too large for my wife's hands. her S20 and previously her S8 was already a bit too large to hold. speaking of phones, when is SONY's new compact coming?
1080p displays, no headphone jacks, no micro SD and only a crappy plastic back on the S21. "Flagship" phones are complete trash these days. Literally no point in buying one anymore
AnonD-923722, 17 Jan 2021Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the S21 series by :
1. Not having MicroSD (it wil... more1- MicroSDs don't slow down your device. Only incompetent dimwits think so. Store your media files on a U3 card and you'll have 100% of your fast UFS storage dedicated to apps and you won't have to choose between your media and your apps, you can have both. Isn't that amazing?
2- "Ancient port", the most useless argument in the world. It's not archaic, it's not limited, it's not unreliable... Why change something that's already doing everything it should do perfectly? "Ancient" is not an argument.
3- Again, that's poorly documented lies. The power drain is really negligible. You pay the big bucks, you shouldn't get a display worse than the S6. And, smart guy, 120Hz has a much more important and actually significant impact on battery life.
4- Alright let's race to the bottom! First to bring 1fW chargers on the market let's go!
5- Either dramatically reduce the price or make the back removable if you use plastic (AND keep IP68).
Why are these poll asking whether you'll buy one of these S20 2021? It should be whether they were good/interesting releases because obviously not everyone will buy one...
But I was impressed, they made the S20 FE look like the objective better choice rather than the S21/+. And the Ultra that takes and reluctantly gives, it'd a very forgettable lineup. Note21U, don't mess up please. Or actually do it, I'll save my money.
Allready preordered Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 512GB After a week I should get from my telecommunications company.
I'm sure it's in the comments but this is the year Samsung sees how much it can get away with. I'm certainly not letting that happen...
OK, no charger in the box, 2of3 1080p, no micro s/d expansion? The very first base model that's PLASTIC & costs 800+ dollars? Nah, keeping my FE, that plastic I can live with because the phone only cost me 549.00 buck-a-roos. Plus it does everything that I will ever need or want. Go ahead spend your 💰🤑! The time I have ever witnessed Samsung playing the money grab game! Yikes!
If the Exynos 888 is actually going to deliver maybe I'll get a used S21+ next winter? The refurbished market here (UK) is basically Apple and Samsung even though you can get plenty of other brands new either from carriers or separately, and as an Exynos market the only recent S phone even worth considering is the S20 FE 5G.
If the ROG Phone 3 pops up used at the same price I'd get that instead for sure though. I don't have to be an FPS gamer who uses the AirTriggers and huge refresh rate to appreciate the general longevity of the package in terms of SoC performance, battery life and maintenance, and screen quality. And Asus not yeeting the bezels into oblivion is a real usability advantage for me as I can sometimes still be clumsy with my touch inputs.
I just play with it, and the camera's are good and sound is nice, for s21 ultra, but overall built is very poor like a cheap phone, from my point of view at this amount of money, is not worth it!!!
I'll wait for note 21 ultra if its coming otherwise I'll stick with my note 10+, still my favorite
I really want this phone but it's missing expandable memory. With 8K video, why even have a 128gb version? Hopefully the Note 21 Ultra will have expandable memory.
Sponge, 17 Jan 2021Those survey results aren't looking promising, there is a reason Apple is very careful ab... moreApple can make whatever they want and ppl will still buy iphones.
- Apple removed jack, nothing happened. Other lost clients when jack was removed.
- Apple does not ship charger, ppl go and buy charger. Other will surely lose costumers by not shipping charger.
All of these phones are pretty appealing, but I'm not buying either of them.
Those survey results aren't looking promising, there is a reason Apple is very careful about what it offers and what it removes, 1 small thing to someone maybe a larger issue to another, years of galaxy fans are something that Samsung certainly shouldn't be upsetting.
The Galaxy S10e, S10 & S10+ were good phones, its not as though the S20/S21 phones are a bad range but I personally think Samsung pushed up the factors on the S20 phones just a little to high and as a result the price as well.
The S21-series may be cheaper across the board but with those things that have been removed its either an inconvenience or ends up a phone which isn't all that balanced in features, specifications and build quality and yes that does include putting a plastic back on a phone looked on by the consumer to be a flagship.
The iPhone 12 Mini may not have all the number, bells and whistles but everything it does offer is of a high quality as well as very likely meeting the expectations of those who are interested in the device, hence the very fact a phones features should be balanced well even if I think the iPhone 12 Mini could forget about 5G at an even cheaper price...
Removing micro sd card slot it's a BIG mistake!!! No charger it's ok,no jack it's fine...Considering it's just January, Samsung has time to design an s21 model with sd card slot.Many of Samsung users needs a house for their large storage micro sd card.I got my 1tb sandisk and i will not throw it away!
Only the S21 Ultra is considerable among those. The S21/S21+ duo are absolute trash. That is not up for argument.
biggle, 17 Jan 2021Am not sure if there will be a S21 FE. They have made all the cuts on S21. In fact S21 seems l... moreThere are still ways for Samsung to do cuts and create S21 FE ...
20 FE uses ddr4x instead of ddr5 like 20/20+/20U.
The gorilla 5 or 6 on screen instead of Virtus.
The cheaper 8MP 1/4" instead of more expensive 64MP 1/1.76".
Worse ultra wide, 20 FE has 1/3" instead of 1/2.6".
Ufs3.0 instead of 3.1
