Score: 98.1 / 100

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a very powerful phone released back in the year 2021, provisioned with an enormous 6.8-inches screen, an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU speeding at 2840 MHz, a 108 MP back camera and a 40 megapixels front side camera. We will get a better understanding of this device's wonders when we get into more details.

This phone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip, backed up by a very fast Octa-Core processor running at 2.84 GHz and a large 12 GB of RAM memory. A good point of this cellphone is its big 128 GB internal memory and although it doesn't include a slot for an SD memory card, it it is more than enough to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about how much storage capacity is left.

Regarding its construction quality, this cellphone is manufactured with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass Victus) and Aluminum . Samsung made this phone in 2 different color options: phantom black and silver. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a very compact cellphone, taking into account that it presents a 6.8 inches display and it has just 6.5" long. This cellphone is very thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches. This cellphone isn't very light for a cellphone of this size, with a weight of 8.04 oz.

Samsung designed this phone with a high-tech 6.8 inches screen, and a resolution of 1440 x 3200 , giving this device a delightful image quality.

This device has two cameras, a 108 MP back side camera and a 40 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back side camera lens has a 1.8 aperture so it can capture beautiful photographs even in low-light conditions. It can also shoot 7680x4320 videos at 24 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 960 fps.

This phone has Wi-Fi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless router), 5G blazing fast data connection, 4G (LTE-A) super fast data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a lower speed 4G type) and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

The S21 Ultra also comes with a great numbre of great features as Fingerprint Identification, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging capability, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and FM Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone has an awesome 5000 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. An issue to consider is that this cellphone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose its charge, whereas having 5000 mAh you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

This cellphone is being sold for $ 966, which is quite a high price for comparing with similar devices. This phone is definitely the right choice it doesn't matter whether you want it mainly for internet broswing and social networks, need a cellphone for playing games, are looking for a cellphone for work or are an amateur photographer. When buying this phone you will also receive C to C Data Cable and Ejection Pin .
