  • It's 2021 and Samsung still can't beat the camera on the BlackBerry Priv, released in 2015.

  • Well, I had a 256GB Phantom Navy version of the S21 Ultra ordered, but I guess it's more of an idea than an actual phone. The dream of something that may just show up at your door someday. Like a child you didn't even know you had. Doubt if I would have even gotten it in the near future with all the production delays Samsung has. I even contacted Samsung customer care, and they were just "Shrug?". They had no idea when it would have actually shipped. So I cancelled that and went with the 256GB in Matte Black. I'm all in Matte Black. Let's do this. Originally was getting the Pro Buds in Silver, but then saw they almost look like an Apple product in that color (Gross) . So I got them in black now too. Got the Watch 3 coming too. My wife's daughter is in the Apple cult and just makes a "smelled a fart" face whenever you even say Samsung. Poor kid. Everything is supposedly coming around March 23rd. We will see. Anyways Marques, the "Matte Black Everything" bus has one more passenger. Hell, I might even get the t-shirt... 👍👍👍👍

  • I don't care about the colour. Here is how I purchase a new phone. Step 1: research and buy the best cover available. Step 2: Take new phone out of box, insert sim and wrap new phone with cover. Step 3: Switch on phone.

  • How can you say that the problem is solved when there are tons of problems and complaints about the device heating problems, Especially the Qualcomm Samsung version did everything to disrupt the version and compare it to its own, But whatever she does the dragon will always be more effective.

  • I mean idk why 24 is the 'wrong' frame rate. Sure, the digital era standard is 30/60 but 24 is still a nice crisp look. Some would even argue that 24 8k is only going to be used by pro's anyway, so having the pro frame rate makes sense.

  • It is a great phone. My dislikes: the weight, thickness, and it gets very warm in high use. Everything else is great. I'm really excited and curious to see what the next generations will bring for the S series and Note series. Like....what will be the next ground breaking re-design...? Would love to see if they can get the phone thinner and lighter...and what they could possibly do next.

  • The real question with Samsung (and to be fair most brands) is how long will they support updates and upgrades. My experience after owning 10+ phones (including many Samsungs (like the Note 1), HTC, LG, Moto, etc.) over the years: 2 years, no more updates after that and the battery start to deteriorate quite fast. Samsung has been the worst in the bunch of brands i have owned. Will this one be any different? That's why I went from always going for flagships to now going for mid range which are much more price competitive; knowing that i will need to change them anyways after 2-3 years.
