Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Available Only In Samsung Authorized Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the company’s most premium smartphone yet, with a strong focus on cameras. Just like the Galaxy S20 Ultra (Review), this new model boasts of 100X “space zoom” and 8K video recording, but with an improved shooting experience and even better image quality.
We’ve already talked about the design and main specifications of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G in our recent first impressions article, so for this review, we’ll dive straight into the cameras and system performance first. If you’re serious about photography or capturing video, then you should be interested in the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which is the most capable of the three Galaxy S21 models.
While the camera capabilities of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G remain largely similar to those of its predecessor, Samsung has reworked the implementation, especially of the telephoto cameras. There’s a new-generation 108-megapixel primary camera which does nona-pixel binning, combining information from nine pixels into one, for more detailed 12-megapixel photos.
There’s a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and two telephoto cameras. The latter both have 10-megapixel sensors, but with different types of optical zoom lenses. One has a 3X optical zoom, while the other is capable of 10X, with a periscope-style lens. There’s no mention of hybrid zoom this time, however there’s still some AI processing being applied at higher magnification levels.
Other than excellent camera performance, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is also a true-blue flagship with cutting-edge components. The Indian version is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 2100 5G SoC, which is similar to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC in terms of fabrication process and the types and number of ARM CPU cores used. The 12GB RAM variant that I had for review posted strong benchmark numbers. It scored 5,70,453 points in AnTuTu, and 960 and 2,995 points respectively in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests. These numbers are still behind what Apple’s A14 Bionic in the iPhone 12 series can produce, but honestly, you’d be hard pressed to tell any difference between these phones with regular use.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G runs OneUI 3.1, and it worked smoothly with no real hint of lag or slow-downs in the week that I had to review this phone. This is the latest version of Samsung’s custom skin, and is based on Android 11. It looks and feels slick. Familiar Samsung gestures and shortcuts such as the Edge Panel are all present, which should make existing Samsung users feel right at home. Unlike the iPhone 12 Pro Max ₹ 129,699, you can make better use of the large display by opening two apps in split-screen.
