Comparison review

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is just a bit better than the Galaxy S21, getting a 11.65 score against 10.94. Both phones we are comparing work with the same Android 11 OS (Operating System). Although Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is better than the Galaxy S21, we must highlight that it is also an older, thicker and notably heavier phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 features a bit better screen than Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, although it has a lot lower 1080 x 2400px resolution, a little less pixels per inch in the screen and a little bit smaller screen. The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G has a bit more powerful processing unit than Galaxy S21, and although they both have 8 processing cores, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G also has a larger amount of RAM memory.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G has a much greater memory capacity for games and applications than Samsung Galaxy S21, and although they both have equal 128 GB internal storage, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G also has a slot for an SD memory card that allows a maximum of 1000 GB. Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G shoots much better photographs and videos than Samsung Galaxy S21, because although it has a smaller back-facing camera sensor shooting lower quality photos and videos, and they both have a F1.8 aperture, the same 24 frames per second video frame rates and the same 7680x4320 video definition, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G also counts with a lot more mega-pixels camera.

Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G features a bit longer battery duration than Galaxy S21, because it has a 25 percent more battery size.

Although Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is a better device, it costs a lot more than the Galaxy S21, and it doesn't have such a good relation between it's price and quality as the Galaxy S21. If you prefer to save some dollars, you can buy the Galaxy S21, and give up a few specs and features, but you will get the most out of your budget.
