        Because everyone else is enjoying this device. Or you are acting like 10year old and everything should go normal on their own?

          Battery life - I can get 8-9 SOT with 24h usage time. This is not mediocre for android device.

          Face and finger recognition - very fast and responsive.
          Maybe if you have screen protector this somehow reduces the effectiveness of the sensors.

Everything I've said stands, you can't convince me to change my mind. I had dozens of flagship phones from different brands and I'm sure I'm able to compare. You are acting like I'm 10 years old with your questions and comments.
            Cheers

              Can you see pixel on full hd contents? I highly doubt it.

              You can use samsung cloud, gmail cloud... for storing photos, videos.

              What's wrong with exynos? I didn't noticed anything slow on it. Neither my friends.

              What's wrong with your fingerprint sensor? My works fine even if my finger is wet.

              Probably all high end phones comes without charger in the box.(I had 5 type c chargers already. I think you had atleast one too)

              What kind of bugs? I didn't noticed any major bugs regarding new software. Maybe some applications are with bugs but that's not samsung problem(and those app developers quickly fixing it).

              Maybe you have lots of stuff on your phone that's why your phone is not snappy?

              Most applications you can disable/uninstall.

              Why do you want change it? What you will achieve?

              I was using s8+ and then huawei p30. This s21 is huge update to huawei p30. Atleast for me

                I admit this phone(exynos 2100)
                Cons:
                1. Amazing colourful display
                2. Exynos 2100 is a very decent processor(i am not a gamer)... Only video editing, video recording nd social media usage.
                2. Battery is too good( 6.30to 7 hrs~ SOT) after latest may 2022 update
                3. Sound quality is too good.
                4. Portrait mode in rear camera like dslr
                5. Solid build quality, great haptics, ip68 etc
                Cons:
                1. Little bit heat up while video recording
                2. Charging is slow(1 hrs 10 min take time 1 to 100% 🔋⚡
                3. 120 hz little laggy when i scrolling YouTube and camera(while video recording)

                  Anonymous, 30 May 2022Can you explain why? What's wrong?Well, I admit I was probably too harsh, but this phone is mediocre at best. It can't be a flagship if:
                  - it has mediocre battery life
                  - mediocre charging speed
                  - Only 394 ppi density, although I'm satisfied with a display
                  - Only 128GM of internal storage with no expendable options
                  - Exynos instead of Snapdragon
                  - Not so reliable fingerprint scanner
                  - Terrible face recognition
                  - No charger in a box
                  - Rushed updates that are often with many bugs
                  - Scrolling is not so smooth
                  - Overloaded with unnecessary Samsung applications
                  - You can't set different resolution in camera for taking a photo, only different aspect ratio

                  That is in no particular order what bothers me about this phone. I was using Huawei flagships for years and they were much better, but now without Google services, I cant continue with them.
                  And I don't like Apple, so Samsung was a logical choice, but huge disappointment.

                    Hi what's the battery drain like on the Exynos version?

                      Anonymous, 30 May 2022No root access needed. And yes it is simple to do(5-15 minu... moreI have not tried the ADB commands but after disabling the fingerprint animations, putting more apps to sleep, turning off more notifications and after enabling the "Suspend executions for cached apps" under Developer Settings i feel the phone performance is a wee bit better and the battery life seems to be a lot better. I'm constantly researching more on how to extend my device's battery life and I hope these things will help others as well here.

There is instructions before you do something and friendly XDA community. Feel free to ask on that forum whatever you want.

                          Hmm it could be true but I didn't tried it yet. I'm satisfied with my exynos device after ADB commands optimisations and disabling some useless programs(onedrive, dual messenger....)

                                I keep my display at 60hz because the 120 is a gimmick for me, don't really care about it but it safes me a lot of juice in the power department. 6 or 7 hours of screentime and 30 procent left before I charge (wireless, at 15w). Seems to help the battery health a lot. All that super super fast charging, can't be good for the battery on the long run.

                                  I've also been hearing that if you disable the fingerprint sensor animation and you you enable one feature under Developer Settings your S21 Plus' battery life will significantly improve? is this true?

                                        I did some ADB commands and everything is smooth now. I'm getting 7-9hours screen on time all the time. You can search for those adb commands in xda forum.
