According to the detailed review, the phone's zoom capabilities regressed, despite having a longer periscope and an additional telephoto lens.

Huawei Mate 40 Pro is better than S21 uLTRA...
hUAWEi wins...

MrDong, 02 Mar 2021Yes, tech reviewers tend to praise phones on a first impres... moretech reviewers that don't give good comments about new products will be avoided by other manufacturers in the future.

Apple has blacklisted a few reviewers this way, and the industry has learnt never to bad-mouth apple products in early reviews.

I have compared this two phones and the camera of the S21 is better in any way. From simple point and shoot up to zoom and video.

MrDong, 02 Mar 2021Is this website even reliable??? How can the zoom capabi... moreFar worse texture-noise tradeoff (though partially due to the fact that Samsung decided to send them a unit with the initial firmware), narrower UWA lens, one telephoto camera replaced by two with smaller sensor areas.. The reasons are pretty clear.

And they gave less score to s21 ultra in auto focus when compared to s20 ultra. S21 ultra has better sensor with improved pdaf and it also has laser auto focus. This shows how genuine Dxomark is.

Sony are great underrated company.

[deleted post]I forgot, also sapphire front and back glass with 32bit DAC WOLFSON AUDIO, and stainless Steel 916L, and titanium and carbon fibrrthat is been used on Rolex watches.

I'd pay £1500+ for that.

Failed to mention that they reviewed the zoom at 2.5x and 8x instead of the 3x and 10x where the the S21 Ultra is best at zooming. Just that makes the whole pointsystem for the zoom part useless.
The S20 Ultra might have better "digital" zoom than the S21 Ultra. But im pretty sure Samsung focused on the new lenses "3x and 10x" instead of improving the digital zoom this time.

Dx0Mark opinon is as worthless as a the 0 in the name.

SEUL8TR, 02 Mar 2021Hey guys, no one has done the Sony 5ii with S21ultra, ipho... moreIt doesn't matter because Sony won't pay enough donations and also reviewers insist that it is only fair if you use the default app in auto mode for photos and will not indulge us in the crazy idea that maybe...oh just maybe it's worth looking into the Pro app.

I wonder how the P50 will turns out.

i knew this from 1st rumors before being released.
many cameras = quantity over quality

Shui8, 02 Mar 2021I guess Samsung pay the highest on DxO display review, as S... moreMust do, because just like Apple fans, if the DxOMark camera review doesn't result in a no.1 ranking it's the result of unfair bias rather than actual testing.
So the display result must be the same surely????

So basically the conscensus among Samsung fans is, when DxOMark do not agree with your personal bias they are paid Chinese shills?
Got it...must remember Samsung are the best at everything despite what reality indicates...

TEtech, 02 Mar 2021i would argue that even the vivo x60 pro+ is a better choic... moreThere are very few head to head camera comparisons for Mi 10 ultra and Vivo X60 pro plus to make that statement.
