New Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G hands-on review
The Galaxy S21 series is no normal Samsung phone launch. There's three flagship phones again, as expected and a noticeable redesign, sure, and serious camera hardware upgrades for the high-end Galaxy S21 Ultra.
It’s Samsung’s way of rivaling Apple’s new entry-level iPhone 12 mini – only with the Galaxy S21 you’re getting a full-size flagship phone with a larger 6.2-inch display, 3x camera zoom capabilities (there’s no zoom whatsoever on an iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 12), and an almost 80% larger battery. Value is why Samsung tops our best phones list yearly.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has a lovely curved glass front and back, using ultra-tough Gorilla Glass Victus. Drop down a level to the Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G and you only get a flat pane – that’s -20 show-off points – while the standard Samsung Galaxy S21 swaps glass for plastic.
Everything has its price in in Samsung's world, but the expensive materials and design definitely make the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G more attractive than its siblings.
Cuts aside, Samsung has managed to make the Galaxy S21 family the most recognisable series of Android phones in ages, thanks to a whacking great camera array on the back. It means business, with all the self-assured swagger of a cocky 17-year-old rocking up to their first “proper” job interview.
