Replaced my Samsung s8 with this one, so it's obviously been a big jump. So far, I really like the smartphone and I know it will be a great replacement for my 5 years old s8.
However, there are a couple of notes that I must point out to potential buyers.
- Battery life: a bit disappointed with the duration of the charge with this one. I suppose it's because of the enhanced screen refresh rate... But still seems very counterproductive to enhance something and not have the rest of the hardware march the enhanced features.
- Colour: I went with the white model and was really disappointed in seeing that it was a "matte" finish. I suppose this boils down to personal preferences, however it personally feels "cheap" in terms of looks. No biggie though since I'll have a cover on it anyway.
- Missing sensors: really bummed to see many of the great sensors that were on my s8 gone. Between these, I'll def miss the infrared sensor used to measure hearth rate on Samsung Health, which I often found very useful.
- No headphones jack, no accessories: last but not least, it was very huge bummer to see how minimal was the content of the packaging. I know it's a course many brands are taking but since the prices are not being reduced accordingly as a costumer I find it very disappointing when I don't find earphones and charger in the box.
On an ending positive note though, everything else is stellar. The camera is just flawless, the higher refresh rate of the screen makes everything seem so smooth, and all around using the device is a great experience.
Still exploring the options. 100m from my local 5G mast got 688Mbps down and 47Mbps up with 'Speed Test', including a, 'you have used over 3Gbit' warning in under 15 secs. I have a 100 down 20 up Zen Internet (via Openreach FTTP) and at 5 am I got 106 down and 22 up on WiFi. Just glad I have unlimited data.
I have about 140 apps and Samsung has dumped me a load more, but I have not had time to delete the ones I do not want yet. Some look useful, a lot don't. Having 256Gb means there is no hurry. A lot of things, like the Ring doorbell, connect much faster than any other device (inc the Alexa Show).
The battery is 33% larger than my old Moto G5 but the consumption rate is about the same. Probably because it is a new toy and much faster, I am using it much more. Have had no problems out and about. Luckily my daughter bought me a charging pad for my last birthday, which I can now use, so in the house, I just leave it on the kitchen/living room hatch I can hear it and have had no empty battery problems. I always plug it in in the car anyway.
I wear hearing aids with blue tooth. It works far better than any other blue tooth device I have and I can hear notifications and ringing in my ears all over the house, even if I have no idea where the phone is. The idea of ringing the phone to find out where it is, just doesn't work.
All told with the discounts and performance, I am very happy.
Battery life on the S21 5G does not last the full day, almost there but needs to be charged at least once. Screen quality one of the best screens I've used in ages. Plus the price that I paid with offers for the 256GB model was £589.
I saw this phone advertised at £650 on Amazon Prime day , a 20 odd percent discount from the original full price of £809. The advert also said I could claim a further £100 cashback directly from Samsung bringing the full price down to £550. So I pressed the "buy now" button. Only I did not check the final payment and I ended up paying the full price of £809. I contacted Amazon support and they kindly rectified. So best you make sure you get the advertised discounts.
Item to start with arrived with a badly scratched screen. I wasn't really that bothered as long as it worked ok. I had a lot of issues getting it set up but i thought I had sorted it out. I never got my text messages so had to use my old phone or my tablet for them. But now it won't answer some of my calls. I tap on the icon and it doesn't answer. Not every call but its now about 70% of them and getting worse. I have paid a lot of money for a useless phone now that I can't use and have put back in its box. I can't return or use it. I feel very ripped off.
