People are still complaining about no headphone jack in 2021? If someone can afford $1200 for this phone, they can surely afford a good pair or wireless headphones as well... If you want a phone with a jack then just buy a $400 phone.

"when you stand to pocket €200+"
When spending $1000+ on a phone, you're more likely looking for "the best thing money can buy" as opposed to "throw away one of the best cameras and save a few bucks!" (because you can save a lot more if you go with, for example, A52 5G, even more if you go with Mi10T Lite 5G).

Anonymous, 28 Apr 2021I am wondering. Lets sayvyhis phone is the best phone. How ... moreUltra phones are the last installment in the manufacturers "war" for customers. No one needs Ultra phones as much as no one (besides you are working or crypto-farming with it) needs 3000$ graphic cards in their home computer or for example sports-cars for everyday usage.
As for Tech-Enthusiasts, these phones are concept phones, showing off what companies are capable of achieving, not really menat to be bought by many people, simply because they are expensive, bold, heavy, hard to repair, etc.

Yet, there are people rich enough to buy a new ultra phone every year though they could easily live with 200$ phones, just because they can. Knowing they "could" do most with their phone is satisfying to them. It's also showing off wealth to some simple minded people that never understood what wealth really means.
It's also not uncommon in the "tech-world" that companies got uberflagships that sell bad, but are concepts for upcoming, cheaper phones. Look at how many phones xiaomi pumps out every month. Most use recycled parts of phones that were once more expensive.

For Indians like me, this looks value for money. Costing same as X60 pro+ and OP9 pro while being better phone and cheaper by INR 35K than S21 Ultra.

Look at the tips of the pencils. Look at the coloured sticks ( idk what it is ) near the dollar. Samsung had overprocessed and oversharpened a lot in lot of areas

I am wondering. Lets sayvyhis phone is the best phone. How do I noticed that in normal use? I own a samsung m51 now and really happy. I can buy an other phone but what are the plusses? So I really notice faster processors? I use my phone just for internet and daling. Whatsapp abd that kind of stuff. Really happy with the batterylife of my phone. Can do 1.5 days. So in general whatbis the use of buying an expensive phone?? Concerning the camera of my phone. Nothing left to be desired.

Asphalt-nation, 27 Apr 2021Y'all need to stop whining about no 3.5mm Jack and no ... more"Today's very high quality Bluetooth headsets"
Nah, Bluetooth still isn't anywhere close to wired in terms of quality. Some of them have got tonality right, but technicality is nowhere near.
Again if you haven't heard actual high quality headphones you wouldn't know that, but stop thinking that everyone has your (lowish) standards.

Gazbraz, 28 Apr 2021Wow use the camera comparison tool on GSM arena and you wil... moreNah...Mi11 U image processing are way way superior, near to what real camera will produce, thats why Gsm call them as 'photographic look'. Those fake details u've seen on S21U are created by oversharpen plasticky mess processing. Bleargh.

I'm glad that both DxO & GSMarena have a lot lot more photography knowledge than you.

Aww man, the barrel distortion in ultrawide is a big bummer.

Thomas, 27 Apr 2021Wow! Compare yellow colors in photos taken by this phone wi... moreUse the camera comparison tool on this site and compare the cameras the mi 11 ultra is a joke compared to the galaxy s21 ultra

Wow use the camera comparison tool on GSM arena and you will see the Mi 11 ultra looks like a 2010 camera phone, compared to the Galaxy s21 Ultra, unless your blind, or work for DXO mark

1200 EUR for phone with USB C 2.0? Ridiculous. DxOMark photos showed really impresive result comparing to S21 Ultra, but GSMArena showed the other :) S21 Ultra photos form GSMArena are much better.

Any ideas when the European release date is?

234g is really heavy, and no 5 years guaranteed software updates.

Why didn't Xiaomi put 120W charging??
The MI 10 ultra has which costs 500€ less has it
The black shark 4 pro which costs 700€ less has it.
