Comparison review

Galaxy S21 Ultra has a global score of 11.67, which is slightly better than Xperia 1 III's score of 11.1. These phones include the same Android 11 OS (Operating System), so both should offer all the same OS features. Despite being the best we compare here, we must highlight that it's also heavier and a little thicker.

The Sony Xperia 1 III's processor is very similar to the CPU in Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, both have a 12 GB RAM memory and 8 CPU cores. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra counts with a bit sharper display than Xperia 1 III, because although it has a bit lower pixels number per screen inch and a bit worse resolution of 1440 x 3200px, it also counts with a quite bigger display.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a lot better camera than Sony Xperia 1 III, because although it has a tinier diafragm aperture which is worse for capturing photographs and videos in poorly lited situations, it also counts with a way better video quality, a much bigger back-facing camera sensor and a back camera with a way higher resolution.

Sony Xperia 1 III has a way bigger memory capacity for applications, games, photos and videos than Galaxy S21 Ultra, because it has 128 GB more internal storage and an external SD slot that allows a maximum of 1 TB. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra features a bit longer battery performance than Xperia 1 III, because it has 5000mAh of battery capacity.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra not only is the best devices between the ones we are comparing, but it's also a bargain compared to the other ones, making buying this phone an easy decision.
