I got the S10 in November 2019 so just a year I'm gonna wait and see what the S21 offers as the S20 didn't really catch my eye besides that ridiculous far zoom on the Ultra, i could have had some fun with that

  • DNRK

Bro... you dont need 16 gigs of ram in a phone (currently)....

  • DJ Emir

The Camera Bump is not an issue at all once you get a good case for the phone then it mounts up near flush just below the surface of the phone, I love my phone but I jumped from an s7 to the s20 Ultra 256 I wanted the 512 since it comes with 16GB RAM...
