SAMSUNG Galaxy S21 Ultra – Full Review

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is the brand’s showpiece and has some amazing new features. It is an upgrade from the regular S21 model, which is actually a cheaper version of this phone. The S21 Ultra is one of the best phones ever to be introduced to the market. This is a high-end and well-performing device that you would be proud to own.


The S21 Ultra has an elegant design and feels great in a hand. Just like regular S21, it also features a camera bump, which curves into the aluminum frame. The back of the phone is made out of curved Gorilla Glass Victus, giving it an appealing look. It also helps in masking smudges and fingerprints. The front of the phone is also covered with Gorilla Glass Victus for extra protection. This type of glass is resistant to falls on hard and rough surfaces from up to 6.5 feet, which is about 2 meters. It is also waterproof.


One of the cool and very aesthetic features of the phone is definitely its curved display. The phone has a 6.8 inch AMOLED screen and features a dynamic display with a refresh rate that can go as high as 120 Hz. In order to save energy, it can drop to as low as 10 Hz. However, in general, S21 Ultra offers a really high resolution. The picture is very clear and sharp. The colors look amazing and the phone also features HDR10+.

Another one of the cool new additions to the phone is definitely the ability to use S-Pen, which before was only possible on Samsung Note phones. However, you will need to buy it separately, but it will give you all the benefits of a Galaxy Note phone.


In terms of processor and GPU, there really haven’t been any changes. Galaxy S21 Ultra is powered by the same processor as the regular Galaxy S21 and is equipped with the same graphic cards. To be more exact, the phone can be powered either by Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100. As always it depends on where you live, or the country where you bought your phone. The graphic processing unit or GPU that is incorporated in the phone is either Adreno 660, which comes with Snapdragon 888 processor, or Mali-G78 MP14, which comes with Exynos 2100. You should know that Snapdragon 888 usually performs better and is favored by users. Speaking of gaming, this phone is more than capable of running any game out there. However, you may experience some overheating after a while, but other than that everything works perfectly. S21 Ultra also has more RAM than regular S21, so games and other tasks will run smoother. S21 Ultra has 12 GB of RAM, which is enough to run any game. However, if you are serious about your gaming then we suggest you look for something with 16 GB of RAM.


As far as the camera abilities go, this phone is definitely a step forward. The S21 features a 108 MP main camera and a 12 MP ultrawide camera. It also has two 10 MP zoom lenses. One supports 3x digital zoom and the other one supports 10x digital zoom. All of the cameras and lenses have amazing autofocus that will allow you to take very sharp photos and will capture a lot of details. The images are high quality and have a wonderful resolution. The colors are amazing and you can even take some incredible low light photos. Additionally, the S21 Ultra features a 40 MP frontal camera that will allow you to take some awesome selfies. The frontal camera is a clear upgrade from other S21 models that have 10 MP frontal cameras.


About the video capabilities, the phone can make some awesome 4K recordings at 30 fps or 60fps. Your videos will be sharp and clear. You can also make 8K videos at 24 fps.   


S21 Ultra has excellent battery life. The phone is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery and can last up to 114 hours without being charged. The phone can be fully charged in 1 hour and also supports wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging, which will allow you to charge another device with your phone.

Final thoughts

In conclusion, this phone can serve you really well, regardless of what your needs are. It has great features and is a step towards the future. It is a bit pricy, but you are paying for a quality that only a few other phones can match. So don’t overthink it too much as the S21 Ultra is worth every penny.
