Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 255.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely 100% love it I totally love my s21 ultra the camera is amazing the picture quality is fornominal. I love the size of the screen the amount of things i could comment on is endless highly recommended to all new phone searchers

Rated 3 out of 5 by from S21 Ultra I gave it 3 stars because there are a few things I dislike or need improving. With the UI 3 you cannot shorten the screen to remove the camera out of the way on app. The front camera isnt flat and is slightly indented. Buggy OS - Samsung Keyboards keeps forgetting the key you selected to be to the left of the spacebar. Also, set to UK English, it displays some menu items in American English. Had a spam text, blocked the number but no option to report it. Heavier than the S10+ Only 512Gb where I had the S10+ 1TB before. The phone is wide and with the flip case with the pen removed, its uncomfortable to hold. The S-Pen works great but the lack of software restricts it tremendously. Holding in landscape to do a screenshot has the power / volume down opposite another button so easy to catch button on left side at the same time. Phone comes with lots of bloatware which needs uninstalling after setup. Samsung Cloud is being replaced with OneDrive but the integration of backing up your messages, settings etc isnt there so not sure what will be done. The default home screen designs are repulsive but it never comes with a black only theme. The AOD / lock screen cimes with a few more dynamic pics and the cats are almost all horid pics not like the usual Internet pics. Ringtones have changed and only a few are ok so add your downloaded, paid for music. Camera is a pain as you may wish to take one pic but it may take one that is like a short video so I hate it when it is like that. In all, as a phone its fine but as a replacement for a S10+ is a bad choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent except as a phone! Everything about my s21 Ultra is great. Amazing camera and screen with good battery life and just everything is great about it except for the call quality. I just can't understand what is going on. I had the S20 plus before and had no problems with using it left or right handed but with the 21 Ultra if I don't have it in just the right place on my left ear then I can't hear it. Very strange. It's not the cover or my hearing. It's definitely a problem with the phone. I have read about others having the same problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets hotter than the sun After last update it gets hot and shuts down. I cannot watch films or record videos without it overheating. Wish I had kept my s10 note plus. A very expensive pocket heater !
