GARBAGE phone. Absolutely hate Samsung devices, will never go back to them. Glitchy, mystery-problem prone pieces of trash.
Battery dies quickly, full of bloatware, not user friendly at all. Awful.

Literally just return it back to your carrier and get an iphone 13 pro max from Verizon!
John , 09 Jan 2022Lol, a stylus is only available for the ipad, not on the iphone, which samsung phones have had... moreSorry for the confusion what i mean is s-pen ha ha.. to excited to confused between stylis and s-pen ha ha.. anyway what ever you call it what is important is that this special function is never been matched to date by iphone..
Lastly your just paying for the phone and brand name for iphone, but when you buy the s22U your paying for the phone phone and features !
Upgrading from s10+ to s21U (Snapdragon) was an absolute disaster for me, first of all the phone is too heavy and unnecessarily long secondly the battery life is absolutely rubbish even my 2 years old S10+ had 7h SOT on average compared to 5h SOT with S21U. Tried all the tweaks but still wasn't able to get extra battery life. Lastly the main issue was storage, I had the 256gb variant but storage is easily occupied by 8k videos / photos & apps.
So finally sold this monster (what's so ever ppl call it) and went back to s10+
I'm extremely disappointed what Samsung is doing with their new flagships, instead of adding features they are just removing all features and trying to copy Apple.
Samsung is a big shame... S10+ will be probably my last device by Samsung

I also personally think that the iphone 13 pro max looks amazing in terms of battery life, 5g, camera quality and performance!

But for now im still happy and very satisfied using my s21 ultra exynos variant.
I compared it to my brothers iphone 13 pro and the s21 ultra hands down in very aspect. My very best decision to get this s21U over the Iphone 13 pro! Using a stylus pen is a plus factor which apple phones doesnt have.
been using my s21 ultra 5G 512GB for almost a year now, no issues encountered or slowdowns. at first i thought i couldnt deal without the microSD card, but having 512Gb is not bad, plus i backup my data to cloud storage. Photos are still good and it can hold its own against my wife's iPhone 13 Pro in some situations. no regrets! Will be replacing this next year with the S23 Ultra 5G in 2023. :)
Jacob, 08 Jan 2022But no sd card slot, no buy..sorryThen buy SD card and use it to call, surf internet and take pictures..
Its more cheaper imho !
Jacob, 08 Jan 2022But no sd card slot, no buy..sorryyou people dont get over the sd card. literally just buy the top model if ur that whiney
Sd should stay but I would rather without sd card in this s21 cos card can cause problem like faulty, fake sd card which often selling all thr world, slow boot up and you have to wait the apps come up.. so without it it lots quicker and more all photo,etc.. to cloud storage or move to pc to keep as big storage that quite simple to do. I own s21 ultra 256GB that big enough for me.. I don't mind without sd card that seem no problem at all and I think in the future smartphone manufacturers may ditch sd card and move for larger internal storage that will happen.
kfcsaucysauce, 04 Jan 2022Honestly samsung needs to stop using exynos. They definitely lost a lot of faith in their cust... moreTotally agree, dropping MicroSD is a profit scam by Samsung. It cost about $400.00 USD more for the 512GB device than the 128GB variant and even though Samsung is the world's largest manufacturer for memory cards it improves their bottom line. A $1,400.00 smartphone without external memory is a sin. Samsung used to be recognized for features the iPhone lacked but those days are long gone. It's no surprise worldwide sales for S Series devices have talked after the S10. The S22 will drive sales even lower. It's not an upgrade, a Note 21 in disguise. They can take their S-Pen and stick where the sun doesn't shine! Their new Exynos SoC has serious problems, big mistake if you're dumb enough to preorder it. See you Samsung, your best days have passed!
Is there anyone experiencing camera issues front and back after Android 12 update?
Please let me know thank you in advance
Honestly samsung needs to stop using exynos. They definitely lost a lot of faith in their customers. They should definitely use their chips for their mid tier phones but these are considered to be top tiered. These are what goes up against Iphones. However I think the Samsung galaxy s21 ultra isn't bad. I hate the idea thought that there is no SD slot. I know they want it to look more modern but there's some things you don't get rid of and personally SD cards are one of those things you shouldn't take away. The battery life and the Camera quality though are so amazing however it's impossible to send photos using the 108mp camera through messages without it being blurry and pixelated. It has some noticeable flaws but it's not bad. I personally gifted my brother a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and it was a definite upgrade from the Xiaomi he had. Upset that there was no SD slot but that's the exact reason on why I had to get the 512gb version. Usually I would just get him the 128gb version but with no SD slot you're kinda forced to get a more expensive option unfortunately. Especially since he does a lot of work on his phone and also games with it. Also one thing I noticed is that while the battery life on it is amazing I noticed the charging port is ass. Sometimes it takes forever to get it to start charging and I don't know if it's something wrong with the cable or the charging block but after three to four months of owning the phone it just started having these issues. I don't think everyone has this issue because I never seen anyone complain about it. One thing though is that Samsung definitely stepped up their game and it shows. Let's just hope the next generation is even better, hopefully they'll shock us even greater next time!
This Phone is an absolute monster! the camera is unbelievable I Once took a 100x space zoom at the moon and the detail was immense, the size is perfect 6.8' display is Ultra and the phone is ridiculously fast and responsive and i've never killed the battery in a day, the only 2 things i dislike is the massive camera bump on the back of the phone but that's just being picky the storage also falls behind compared too lets say Apples 1TB storage with the 13 but overall i love this phone and i recommend to anyone who wants to go all out on performance, camera, size and battery life
Sam799, 30 Dec 2021Did you finally get the Iphone 13 Pro Max? Yes I did, I think I made the right choice!
Also the cameras were still as good, even in low light, it would still get better after several updates
lesonoeu, 28 Dec 2021i feel sorry for you then.It's fine, most people already have their own preferences, but the s21 ultra isn't really good enough for me! The 13 pro max is, but the battery life on a 13 pro max was still as good as the s21 ultra's, and it's far from causing issues for me, Mainly because of the optimization on ios, but it should age pretty well after it was released!
