Anyway, it could be a nice move to "award" hardcore Samsung fans with the downgraded Galaxy S line and let other people move to other brands.
JDK, 25 Jan 2021snapdragon 888 sir.
Lower price(s20 was $1000 last year, s21 is now $800).
Not to mentio... moreMany times repeated price point is turning from laughable to irritating: not only S21 is not worth its downgrades but you can also pay much less now for S20 and get more features than S21.
And you are that lucky one who gets SD888, but how about "Exynos world"? How about comparing new Exynos 2100 to the year old SD865+?

in efficient processer optimisations as always
dvfs setup probably bad as always getting confused
throttling could be a issues as its been clocked along higher than the snapdragon 888 in same configuration as the exposure 1080 not as powerful it generates less heat probably has better sustained performance
on paper this should be faster than the snapdragon 888 in cpu by around 5 to 15%
gpu wise its still lacking
1080p display so onscreen runs should be higher
less stress on cpu
on 1440p maybe they is not suffient cooling that leada to load of heat trapped and only ultra has it because larger
No charge adapter. no headphones jack. what's next year? a box without a phone? -"you can buy the phone separately"? sheesh

Also the regular S21's "Glastic" back does not shatter but scratches far more easily than S21+/Ultra's glass back, which makes the protection using a case pretty much mandatory if you want to keep it clean (Metals cannot make scuffs on a glass surface - it readily does on a plastic).
Completely unrelated side note: I changed my username slightly but don't get confused, I'm still the same person as the one you replied to.

Yeah, plastic back is also a con, but it depends on how much you like plastic.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2021I don't understand how Exynos 1080 scores 690k and above while Exynos 2100 scores 585k?? That's what happens when a phone is running Samsung's bloated mess with dozens of extra processes...
lol i had high expectations with this one at least they should have made some improvements from the s20.. even the 8T is better specs vise.
Overall with the phone i like how it looks (not a fan of the s20 line up from last year)
What i wish they would have done - at least have 30-35w fast charging.. would have loved /to see a macro camera. The rest/most of the specs apart from the looks are quite similar to s20 from last year. Sure s20 is much cheaper now and hope they have improved the AF on this camera. s20 i had issues.
Il wait some moths and see how this goes.. Samsung might release a s21 FE version? lets see

I even saw a Samsung S7 edge at some point or a LG G6. You can find usually all sorts of Samsung and Apple models, even from 4-5 years ago at really good prices. And this are not second hand small shops, by the way.
You can easily buy a S20. You just need to have patience and wait for one to appear. The price of one can go as low as 600EUR now (21 months warranty). I am expecting to be even lower later in the year. Still better than 800EUR for a S21.
i bet the next stupid thing they will threat us like a 𝕤𝕙𝕖𝕖𝕡 is removing charging port. so that they can sell separate overpriced wireless charger, after we buy overpriced wired charger from them last year

Not to mentio... moreYou're losing some of basic and core features for the yearly SoC upgrade and slightly lower price. Samsung is now seeing that S21/+ as a bait to tempt people into buying more expensive Ultra. That's not an upgrade, but a mere devaluation.

"probably Asians have different sense of Humor"
I. AM. NOT. ASIAN. The username I use in this forum is a made-up one and is nothing to do with my ethnicity.
"Because of RYYB sensor.. example with a Huawei phone which uses RGB sensor"
"Then secondly you debate with me and say how many ways the RYYB sensor can be noisy"
I could have kept going on about how an example of a camera that uses a RGB sensor is actually relevant to that topic or even shown you an instance where 50MP QB RYYB clearly outresolves 108MP Nonacell RGB sensor, but I thought I shouldn't put my nose in after you told me how the discussion had started, so I backed off. The dynamic range and noise discussions were started by ME because you had a poor understanding regarding those topics, and they were nothing to do with any other conversations you guys/we had had prior to it.
Finally, the water nozzle used for the IP65 test uses higher pressure than the value you calculated for the IP68 submersion test, albeit the water is sprayed from a distance instead of point-blank. There are other reasons why there are and should be separate passing criteria for those two tests but I won't talk about them here.
Thanks for reading and goodbye.
