  • In A Word : Premium
    Reviewed by Feisar - January 30, 2021

    After a day of power use : Reviews will mention lack of 1440p and SD card slot. I will miss the SD card but the screen is superior to the S20 due to adaptive refresh to 120hz. Excellent balance between battery usage and performance. I believe most users opted for 120hz in te S20 as well which also was at 1080p... however now the 1080 will be a native resolution for the panel instead of a scaled one. In all other aspects - speed , quality of materials, etc. Top of the range. And Samsung - I noticed the pre-installed screen protection. Very nice touch. Kind of makes up for there being no power brick in the box.

    Loyal Samsung customer forever... My phone came with out a charger... we just purchased 2 new samnsungs and we are not rich. Now I have to buy a charger? Can't afford it but Samsung says we don't need it.. it is a waste.. well my phone has been plugged in for 5 hours and is not even 60% charged, and is predicting hours left. I read some reviews after the fact... my bad now I see that my phone also has no head phone jack.. ironic now that Samsung has wireless earbuds... I need head phones for everyday use but can't afford new ones... So Phone is going back and I need to not only look for new phone but now a new manufacture because I can not afford Samsung.

  • Best Buy was Great! Phone not so much
    Reviewed by 11:11 - March 13, 2021

    Had an S9+ Tried the S21 Plus but the front facing camera was so soft and fake looking. Color on phone was terrible. So I Upgraded to the Ultra and yes the camera is amazing but the color is off as well. When I look at my S9+ pictures, they display so much nicer on the S9+. So I decided I would live with it. I was talking the 1st night and the call randomly dropped, which I never have an issue when I am at home on any phone. It kept restarting randomly even when I was using it. So I reset the phone and started over. It seemed better... When I woke up in the morning the screen lept turning on... then off... then on... then off... I boxed it up immediately and returned it. Don't need ohone troubles. Now I need to decide what to get. The Note doesn't look to promising either... too bad. Had many Samsungs over the last 18 years..
