Weekly poll: are you getting a Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra or are you sitting this one out?

Samsung unveiled its new flagship trio and kicked off pre-orders this Friday. Will you buy one now, in the near future or never?

These 2021 models are DOA.
No microSD (!!!), less display resolution, lower build quality, no Samsung Pay anymore, ugly colours (except black & silver), etc.
And the worst of all. Samsung is blocking now 3rd party repairs (with an software update), like Apple did!

I really like Samsung (also the OneUI & their 3 Android updates), but they made it more and more difficult to choose them over other brands...

i want Snapdragon version only. Exynos has disappointed us since the beginning, never give it a chance anymore.

In 3 months the price have dropped 30-40%. Be smart.!

Flagships phones are overrated these days, not significant better than an an average phone and costs a fortune with ever increasing prices. All just hype

Never had Samsung phone, never will. Getting Spygle free phone next.

No headphone jack means no sale for me.

My convertible / laptops all have pens, and I dumped them at home because it's a nightmare to bring them around. When you have a mouse + powerbrick + laptop + phone(s) + pen to manage when you go out and about, it's a nightmare to have to carry additional accessories. Imagine if you have to dig for THE pen every time you want to do something.

Charger included in a that lower price, better build quality, better battery and Qualcomm SoC (which at least means it will have more custom ROM

I bought oneplus 8t for 530€ a month ago, knowing that s21 will cost a lot more. And i was right, in Norway,it costs 990€, almost double as my 8t.
Yes, it does have newest SoC, better cameras and probably support too...but it cost 2x more.
So, no thanks...

I already bought it a few days ago. I could see that the focusing issues the S20 Ultra had seemed to be gone on the S21 Ultra. Furthermore, there's the 10x optical zoom. And it's $200 less. That was enough for me to buy one.

LG Superfan, 17 Jan 2021I think camera will be better on Huawei as usualNope. This year Huawei dissapointed a lot of people, especially the Mate 40 Pro. It has simple issues that should only be on midrange devices, not flagships. The issues are :

1. Colors and weird white balance
2. Blurry night photos
3. Night mode is often worse than auto mode
4. Selfie camera is useless at night even with night mode
5. Less stable videos than the competition
6. A lot of EIS artefacts thanks to the lack of OIS
7. White balance, colours and exposure instabilities

Should have used qhd or put one of the ultra telephoto lenses on the s21+
Otherwise rn it doesn't make any sense at that price

looks like great camera upgrades but you really need a left and right hand model for these over breaking camera setups. they have dropped sd card support, and still no headphone jack. Looks like I need to find a new phone line.

"...are you getting a Galaxy S21, S21+, S21 Ultra or are you sitting this one out?"

this is downright stupid. how should i make a decision on such a matter knowing NOTHING about real life performance of the product that, at the moment, is just a list of specs and a few pictures?

Yes. I'm finally dumping my Huawei P30 Pro
