proUser, 30 Jan 2021Just seen demo piece at store. Its too huge to hold in one... moreI got the S21U 16gb Ram.
I've rooted it.
The phone gets really hot too 55
The phone does not throttle, but instead it drains battery much faster.
5000mah phone is now 4000mah after the root.55 celcuis, I don't care or doesn't bother me, because it's hot on top right hand, so we all hold the phone at the middle bottom.
Yea, but the phone is twice faster than standard, I'm playing games at 70fps, GPU has been raised to 1300mhz from 950mhz, severe battery drain by 30% than standard. Phone is super fast, ..
Now it shows extreme and turbo on battery section, as well as high performance and power saving.

AnonD-973296, 01 Feb 2021they guy under ur comment apparently didTrue, looks like very rare people can afford the 512gb version.

I received mine on Saturday, got the silver glass back one than the dull dead black frosty back.

Prefer the glass because when you swipe it clean it, it's so shiny sparkling than Matt frost dull.

I also have the Sony 5ii and Note20Ultra 512gb .

What phone do you have?

I still have my Nokia 8800 Arte in gold and the carbon fibre .

Charging sucks on the ultra. Without the wall adapter it charges really slow (takes 5-6hrs to fully charge from 5%)... Its all hype

"The primary camera uses Samsung's latest 108MP ISOCELL HM3 1/1.33" sensor with 12,000 x 9,000 pixel grid and 0.8ยตm pitch. It has a Nona-pixel Bayer filter pattern that allows for 9-to-1 pixel binning, so the effective pixel size becomes 2.4ยตmm and the resolution 12 MP." - can somebody explain the mathematics behind 9x0.8 = 2.4?

[deleted post]He's right though. No need to mock a person who is simply making a logical argument based on facts.

Amazing phone review. I defiantly buy this product.

Nick Tegrataker, 30 Jan 2021Huawei was involved in the development of BM3D NR and Samsu... more*sorry to tell you this

TheLastOracle, 28 Jan 2021BM3D technique is basically a image denoising algorithm, an... moreHuawei was involved in the development of BM3D NR and Samsung wasn't. Moreover they stated in 2019 that the new ISP on Kirin 990 supported it, so it's borderline impossible to assume that Kirin 9000 doesn't use the same algorithms.
Now, looking back at the GSMA's low light photo comparison chart, Mate keeps the noise level lower in low frequency areas while maintaining comparable or even slightly higher amount of texture details as S21U (and Mate achieves this despite using the centre 9MP crop of its sensor, vs S21U's full 12MP).

I'm sorry tell you this, but I don't see what you're seeing at all.

Just seen demo piece at store.
Its too huge to hold in one hand and heavy.
I would still prefer size of normal s21.

Anyone bought normal s21 give feedback about :
1) heating issue
2) battery life
3) camera review
