But that OH so smooth refresh rate is what feels like heaven, like sliding through butter.

I'm guessing you live in India? Not everyone lives there, and even those who do can still import a Snapdragon variant, with no apparent performance losses. S21 Ultra is actually a very good phone, but you say because of the chipset it becomes bad. Stop whining.
Worldcitizen, 28 Nov 2021Is just a phone brah high refresh rate more important cuz so much scrolling with phone. Sony just lunch Sony Xperia Pro-I

Sony can do it . Why Samsung can't do it for s22. 1440p display with 120hz refresh rate. And 700 ppi density

1080 120hz refresh rate is worst ever . On flagship device like s21 and s22

the only thing I hate about samsung was because of bloatwares! I mean, it's not that bad, but still far from impressive! That's why I delete some of those pre installed apple apps and then download some third party apps from the app store, but I mostly don't use apple apps, I feel like keeping apple apps in a folder on the second page is as aesthetically pleasing as sophia camarda's one!

Like, using 1440p isn't THAT much better, because you can't use 1440p and 120Hz at the same time. So if you want the high resolution, you'll have to sacrifice high refresh rate, which you wouldn't do. Except now I learnt that many people actually used the 60Hz 1440p (!). I don't know about your preferences, but to me, high refresh rate is more important.
I just don't know why SMARTVIEW application run in background. When it's forced stop even it's is not on.. When ever it's run smartview automatically . My phone internet connection goes slow. Can anyone help with this issue.

Luckily it'll be a completely free upgrade, so money spent won't be an issue. If anything I'll probably do the smart thing and get a screen protector or case for the phone. I'm pretty good with all my equipment anyway.
Me, 23 Nov 2021Please disregard the comment Randy. It was a misreading on my part. I was still waiting for an... moreHere, I'll answer your post. The S21 is actually not a great deal even compared to other Samsung phones such as A52s and S20 FE. You see, both A52s and S20 FE have 120Hz Amoled, A52s even has a headphone jack and micro sd card slot if you are into that. S20 FE has a telephoto. And they are both cheaper than the S21. Now, to be fair, the S21 does have a compact form factor, which is important for a lot of people. It is roughly the same size as the p30 lite, whereas most other phones are bigger. So, it all depends on what's important.
If you want a compact phone but don't want to spend as much money, you could get the Google Pixel 5 or Sony Xperia 5 II.
You, 24 Nov 2021How was your experience with P30 lite and how many years have you used it? is it a good phone?... moreThe phone hasn't been bad, aside from the not knowing if it'll be banned from the networks lol. With my phone company in Canada, I get a free upgrade every 2 years. What I do is call the loyalty department and see if I can get the best deal possible.
In this case the company's already offering the S21 for free. So if I can't get the S21 ultra, like my initial goal was, I'm happy to upgrade to this one.
I appreciate the advice on the flickering. I'm looking into that now.
Me, 22 Nov 2021Hey all. I've currently got a p30 lite and I'm considering the S21 5g as an upgrade.... moreHow was your experience with P30 lite and how many years have you used it? is it a good phone?
S21 is AMOLED screen compared to P30 lite's IPS, you will have difficulty adjusting at first. Few fraction of people get headaches. Please google "PWM flickering".
Other than that, s21 is good, no h/jack, buy wireless headphones.
Me, 23 Nov 2021Well the S21 would be free with the upgrade I'm eligible for through my provider.Please disregard the comment Randy. It was a misreading on my part. I was still waiting for an answer to my own poste lol.

It's not that I don't want high quality, of course I do. Who wouldn't want a bleeding edge display, performance and camera? What I'm trying to say is that the S21's display is MORE than enough for your needs.
Tip: If you have the S10, then don't upgrade to the S21, if you are on an older phone, then get the S21. You will get key benefits: Great performance, battery and charging, and small form factor (which is important). If you don't care about those then look elsewhere.
You kind of caught the catch. Notice how they didn't name the S21 the S30. Because they knew that S21 wasn't meant to be an upgrade to the S20 but rather a sidestep, an expansion of choices, they could have called it the S20s but that's weird
RandyRiffin, 23 Nov 2021You have to ask yourself, is the S21 worth $300 more than the S10?Well the S21 would be free with the upgrade I'm eligible for through my provider.
