    Excellent phone, very complete machine, great camera, battery, screen, fast processor. I came from iPhone 12 Pro Max, and I do not miss it as it tought I would. If you are willing to leave the apple ecosystem, this is the best phone after the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The screen resolution is another level.

    Photo quality, Screen quality

    I wasn't exactly sure which type of phone to purchase when I first walked into Best Buy. I was deciding between the Google Pixel 5 and Samsung Galaxy S21. However, after talking more to the best buy associate, Taylor, I came to realize that the Galaxy S21 Ultra was tailored more for my needs. Thanks to Taylor, I realized that the Ultra existed and was capable of producing such high resolution photos, along with special features such as the director's view. That was enough to sale it for me. Although I was a little worried about how large the phone would be compared to my prior one, I do not regret the decision. Overall, I love the phone's capabilities and I'm so impressed by how well the photos turned out on my recent hike! I am so fortunate to have been helped out by Taylor in my phone selection process. Taylor was easy to talk to and provided exceptional customer service by going out of her way to answer all of my questions, as well as offer honest advice in my purchasing decision.

    Camera

    So, have you been looking for a phone that actually DOES what you want, when you want? THIS is it, AND more. I've had it for a week, been playing around with it as much as I can, and it's STILL keeps revealing more stuff to play with. Unbelievably smooth, wonderful to hold, (even though I've now wrapped it with a USG protector), great to navigate around on. SO many camera options, SO many ease of access apps. I love it. The price is up there, but it's SO much more than I've ever had on my S8. It's extremely worth it, and I've only had it for about a week. Can't wait to get that camera out there, and earn it's keep!

    I loved this phone so much. Super fast, amazing screen and awesome camera. I am 5’2 and have hands smaller then average. I knew this phone was a behemoth but convinced myself it was way worth it. I got 2 pop sockets (to brace it correctly) and oh man it was awesome for a while. However after the 4th time I dropped it on my face and ended up looking like an MMA fighter I decided to reevaluate my phone needs. Then my doctor mentioned my TFCC wrist injuries were flaring pretty badly and I couldn’t help but think this was exacerbated by the overpowered (in a great way) brick I was carting around. Is this phone super gorgeous? Yes! Incredibly fast with excellent processing? Yes! The best camera I’ve ever used? Yes! Meant for small people with easily damaged faces? No! Not Samsung’s fault at all, this is easily a 6 star phone and if you have normal-to-large hands this is great for you. For those of us who are handsize-challenged, we’ll just have to wait for companies to realize small people would like incredible phones, too. I mean, Titans aren’t the only people who want that beautiful screen and phenomenal processing, right?

    Love love love this phone. If anybody buys this phone PLEASE make sure it works! I bought my first one 6 days before this one and after 2 days realized that when I got or made calls I couldn't hear anybody so I had to return it. For the amount of money you pay it should work perfectly the first time. But my second one I absolutely love and it works perfect. Still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of it but so far I absolutely love it and it was definitely worth the money!!! I've NEVER spent this much on a phone in my life but I finally spent a little money on myself and am happy I did!!!

    Great phone came in perfect condition couldn't tell it was previously used at all. Would definitely recommend best buy open box items, ones in excellent condition at least. No micro sd is a bummer and I find the under screen finger print reader far worse than the old reader on my moto g7 power but I have dry hands so that might be the issue here.

    Bear in mind that I would give the phone 4 and a half stars rather than the simple 4, mobile won’t let me do it in half. Android has definitely come a long way from my experience and says of the galaxy s5. Build quality is superb and in terms of hardware, you get a lot for what you pay. Animations and everyday usage has been great with no slow downs and updates are pretty prompt. The only gripe I can give (although it’s not really bad anyways) is the battery drain. For my usage, I can squeeze out the battery from full to near empty by the time I go to bed around 11 PM. Not bad by any means for me, but do wish it can be a bit better. For many others though, I can say the phone will comfortably last all day and part of the next morning before needing a charge.

    Went from a OnePlus 6t to this phone and it feels like a major upgrade. The phone feels smooth most likely due to the framerate increase. The features that are unique to Samsung's OS version are great. Any S Pen works great as well, I ordered an s pen for a Note S8 and it worked fine with this phone. There are some of the disadvantages such as no micro SD card slot, but I haven't had one on a phone for a while and normally the storage isn't an issue for me.

    I upgraded from the S20+ To the S21 ultra. The design is so much better in terms of looks and feel. I’m really enjoying 120hz at Quad HD resolution and the display is really bright, specially outdoors. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is faster and more accurate, now I don’t have to put much force in order for it to read my fingerprint. The cameras aren’t drastically better, improvements are mostly noticeable in low light. I have no issues with battery life,

    Let me be the first to say ' I'm impressed '. I brought this phone strictly for business use and this was a solid investment. The phone is quick, simple, doesn,t overheat, and easy to use. I pair my blueparrot headset with my samsung s 21 ultra for work purposes. I think samsung finally listened and created a flawless phone. By the way, the camera and video recording is more vivid and natural then the iphone 12 pro max. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Right off the bat..the cameras are really good. I purchased this for my wife and she upgraded from a Note 9. The screen is objectively just the best. Wish Samsung would dial it down with their over the top software and keep it vanilla stock android but I guess folks that have been buying Samsung products over the years like the extra features and you can set it up to use the app of your preference. So that negates the redundant apps that Samsung puts on there. Software aside, the hardware is amazing. Screen, battery, cameras and even the phantom black color is brilliant. The finish is not a fingerprint magnet.

    Hands down, without a doubt, the best phone on the market. Extremely intuitive design and interface as well as powerful processing and camera capabilities make this phone unrivaled.. but all that comes at the cost of a pretty penny. GET A SCREEN PROTECTOR. The glass scratches really easily, I left mine in my pocket with my keys for 2 minutes and got 2 scratches on the screen.

    Best device on the market till the next model is released. Especially when you complete the S21 Ultra with the S- Pen and Galaxy Buds Pro. Extremely satisfied with my purchase. Highly recommend. Only thing thats missing is the ability to combine the 21 Ultra with the accessories to form a sort of Samsung/Voltron-like robot. Anyway, S21 Ultra is awesome.. Buy it..

    This device had been exactly what I'd hoped it would be. It has delivered on its promise of being the premier smart phone on the market. I absolutely love and thoroughly enjoy the camera, as it is far superior to the competition, lol. Also the processor is quite responsive and the fastest smartphone I've ever encountered, let alone owned. Probably my favorite purchase in the past year.

    I love this phone and no issues so far. I had a Note 5 but it was time to get a more currant one. It was a toss up between another Note and this one. The only negative for me is I wish it had a media card slot but my Note 5 didn't either so I still have to Smart Switch as I don't do the cloud storage. This phone takes beautiful pictures and I'm still learning everything it can do. I hope its as reliable as my other phone.
