Does it come without charger

To be honest, i switched from 21 ultra to + and can't be more satisfied. Dimensions ans the flat display are main factors. Although i was a bit sceptical about a resolution downgrade, i must say I'm impressed with 1080+ panel.

Very nice job, samsung!

very happy with my device

Uh nice S21! Have a new S21!

Disappointed 😞, came from S7 sdge after screen broken, I were in rush so I didnt do my homework before buying the s21+, although my provider didn't have too many options, but I wouldn't thought it will be a downgrade buying a new flagship phone from Samsung.

1st. No headphone disbite it's price,
2. No charger as I only have old USB one, which make me visit Samsung store to buy one before my battery ends up.
3. Can't recharge and use headphone same time
and need adapter to use old headphone which I end buying it as well
4. fingerprint not good as s7 edge, I need to try 4 to 5 times before opening the device, and password need to be entered with numbers + letters now.
5. My old device s7 edge have better display, 1440 x 2560 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~534 ppi density) compare with 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~394 ppi density, I can feel the difference.
6. No heart rate sensor with new device, although I know many don't include this feature although still a plus as I used it from time to time.

Really not worth the price, feel like Samsung screw their customers with this phone, I would go to xiaomi, huwaui or mid range phone.

Shadim, 08 Apr 2021What chipset did you use in this review, Gsmarena?Of course Snapdragon, you can't get 111h with Exynos...It's a crappy CPU and Samsung doesn't care about this...They should learn from Huawei how to make CPUs

Can anyone reply please with the mediainfo (use app on the play store) so I know what the audio bitrate is when recording videos please?
With it being a flagship I don't expect it to be the useless 96kbps that so many lesser devices seem to be set to these days. Thanks.

not purchasing a Samsung again.. bought an s21+ after a month of using it suddenly the screen went blank.. had to replace the screen though it has a 2 years warranty but just shows how cheap quality this thing is

even iOS runs chrome smooth than google itself...

proUser, 15 Feb 2021Bought Exynos s21+ 2 days back , here are observations ===... moreSadly Chrome is lagging on every android now. I had the same problem on Xiaomi Mi 10.
Problem is caused by google. Source code of chrome is more and more complicated.
Chrome on iOS uses Safari engine (as every browswer on ios) not chromium engine.
So it is not problem with Samsung or Exynos.
