Listen to my 5 cents please. I have had Galaxy S7 since came out. Now after it 's motherboard crashed I ordered from ebay other faulty to make one out of two. If you search on ebay for Galaxy S8,S9,S10,S20 most of them have screen shattered issues.They have almost same processors, same battery capacity there is no benefit of getting a new replacement model. Since all new phones have screen to it's edges and no frame protection they will suffer from same problems. What I see in new phones means bigger screen and more cameras every year. It is like holding a brick with 20 eyes.Screw it. I am staying with my S7 which has best score amongst them all. No SD card slot and no earphones and no charger?pfff hahahah.Joke.Stylus to do graphics on such a small surface? Get a drawing board or use 26 inch monitor.New phones become a business "blink blink" show off jewellery.

The way Dave said “chonky” instead of “chunky” proves that trends make existing words obsolete or at least, out of style.

Mannnnnn checkout the Nvidea sharpening filter. It changes the game! It gets rid of the blur and makes it look even better than 1080p on a 1080p screen. Dk why it's not talked about much! am talking for 1440p monitor screens that are coming out for laptops!

Bums me out that the S21 doesn’t get pen support or UWB when it’s supposed to be a premium phone. Not everyone wants to carry a brick sized phone.
Anyone else bored with phones lately? These are such a step down from last year. Typically Samsung has been in a spec wars with themselves, but not this year. Maybe it’s LG leaving the smartphone space. At least in the states there’s not much else to chose from. Apple or Samsung. Now yet again copying Apple on not I closing chargers. Hopefully one plus comes through.

So the galaxy note 20 ultra (which is still a lot pricy compared to what it is) will the last great phone from Samsung until they add all the features/accessories they removed (SD slot, charger, earphones). They need to know that that other company gets away with it because of 2 reasons mainly. 1. There have no direct competition (because of their inhouse OS unlike multiple of android phone brands) 2. Their fans/user/target base is stupid as hell as they accept all this shit. Not saying that Samsung doesn't have those but far less and as an android user there are still other android good phones from other brands to choose from. I am a fan of Samsung displays so I always preferred their phones (currently on my 3rd year of note 8 -Dec 22, 2017) but they disappointed me big time this year because of S21 series and their laser projector.
where are the ryzen 7 4800u laptops??

There was a time when everyone was rushing to be a thin phone, but now the trend is in the thick camera assembly.

WHY do they insist on keeping that STUPID curved edge display, then take away the SD slot?! And STOP making the phone thinner I’d rather have no camera bump and extra day of battery life cause the phone is a little thicker!!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

@Sharky165 Sony does all that. Look at the Experia 5 ii. 6 inch 1080p 21 by 9 aspect ratio 120hz oled display with a 240hz touch response. A headphone jack. A notification led light. No notch. No hole punch. Micro SD expansion. IP68 water resistance. Front facing stereo speakers. Paired with a super stock like OS with very minor tweaks and apps like a very professional camera app. All for 900 bucks. Only problem is no one buys them, the camera app has a learning curve and I don't know how the modding community is like. If you can unlock the bootloader and flash roms and throw on Pixel Experience on there, you have the best phone imo. Or just throw gcam on it. Fun fact, almost every high-end smartphone uses Sony's own cameras. It's all about the software tuning.

@Sharky165 and Sony
Sharky165 Month ago
Indeed. 🤦🏼‍♂️😠🤬😩 LG, to its credit, is now the _ONLY_ major smartphone OEM (at least of those who produce flagships) that continues to offer not only micro-SD card support, but also 3.5mm headphone jacks (with good DACs) in its devices. On the downside, LG's Android skin is disliked by many, OS updates are infrequent and inconsistent, and most of its phones have unlockable Bootloaders (making them hard to root for those who'd like to install a custom ROM).

I think I will purchase s pen without case, since the case with the room for s pen is too big to handle by one hand. I also saw some photos that there will be a S pen pro, which is really look like a pen.

Wtf. You call that chunky? Spoiled fruk. I have a m51 with a thick spigen hard silicone case. Beautyful. Too bad i can't get a high end phone because of frunks like you who cannot deal with thick phones. They want money so they will not make a big battery on top models because idezoots need it thin. Frunkers.

Until you'r phone's planned lifespan ends and there will be no new phones with microsd except for "pro" models with a price tag of 1000+. But who am i kidding, by then it will probably be normal to apend 2000+ on a phone just to get features you could get a decate ago for just 200.

So the flagship already overpriced phone gets no sd card slot’ no charger’ no dual sim, an ugly case with a functional slimmed down pen which you have to pay for.... I'm baffled people want to buy it. Had Samsung for 10 years now but they lost me now.

I purchased a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note Ultra 5G October 2020 , I don't use the S Pen feature I did tinker with it to see how it works , I found our naval base 50 year ink pins with rubber tip top works well on my new phone the camera is sunken in so it does not touch the table or surfaces you lay the phone on so while the S21 new cell phone has some new advanced features they don't justify me purchasing the new S21 I prefer to purchase a new phone every 12 months and don't do videos with my phone so wishing the S21 success .
