Granted, the scores are not impressive on Geekbench 5.2.5, but that just means Samsung is likely still optimizing the software on this device.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is expected to arrive much earlier this year than ever before: January. CAD renders of the Galaxy S21+ surfaced earlier this week (based on leaks from further ago) which showed us a familiar design with a new twist around the design of the camera array, which flows towards the power key on the side and looks beautiful.

The highest-tier (Ultra model) of this series is expected to come with support for the S Pen. This device is said to be the ultimate successor to the Galaxy Note series, whose launch window in the fall is expected to be taken over by Samsung’s succeeding folding flagships like the Z Fold and Z Flip.

Video editing depends on the apps used. Some apps are more optimized for Android while others are more optimized for iOS.

LOL SHUT UP. You said Phonebuffs are relaible but not Speedtest G. Proof that you are a apple fanboy thanks for proving your point. Geekbench isn't reliable.
