    Stopped viewing this racist ... especially after he supported BLM etc
    They hide a lot of stuffs ....... E.g : To use step counter / heart rate sensor etc you need *Samsung health* app.
    Samsung health app since April 2021 wants permissions to your
    - Telephone
    - Contacts
    - Camera
    - GPS etc ...
    Why does a step counter need these permissions ???

    Without these permissions you wont be able to use Samsung Health and without this app. your Heart Rate sensor etc are useless on a $1200 + Phone or your Galaxy watch.

    my biggest issue with this device is weight and size. Too heavy too bulky. I sold mine and went to s21 5g. FANTASTIC. I'd prefer the 4 camera option but I like not having my shorts dragged down!

    This hack phone is a piece of ¤"#%, it constantly submits endless amounts of telemetry data, and just the fact that you can't remove crap apps like Facebook is reason enough for me to say... NEVER again a Slamsung.

    I cannot understand Samsung they give us crazy 8k and remove the SD card there also no factory screen protector to go with the rest of stuff they removed I don't care about the charger I have many but no factory screen protector very tight Samsung are getting as bad as Apple.
    my note 20 ultra is shocking for the price 2 hours its lost half the battery at 7:30 am it was at 97% at 10:30 am it was at 53% not in use and after 5 days it showed 3890mah that'smah

    What's your view on the fact that it doesn't have a jack to plug an earphone. That's terrible for who love to plug in an earphone to some discreet listening experience without actually disturbing people around them.

    6.8 inches *is* stupid big lol, but to cram in all the functions and have any kind of operational time, it needs to be.
    Now, someone make something with half the specs, single front, single back cameras, huge battery, rubberized backside and 4.5 inch screen.
    There is ONE option that isn`t far above 5 inches and that`s the iPhone SE, which is 4.7 inches, 0.1 more than the Xperia X Compact, which you can no longer get.

    Is the camera ACTUALLY fixed tho. I have the 20 Ultra and it's ridiculous. I have to scan paperwork to an app for work, and I've resorted to using my backup phone for that bc the 20 Ultra camera is so bad I can't get it to focus at all. I've given up on this camera, and it's really ruined the experience of this phone. I'm not sure if I want to buy the new one unless I can be 100% certain that it will do what I need it to do. And, I feel like Samsung needs to do something for S20 Ultra owners to make up for this. For such an expensive phone that was mostly marketed for the insane camera, it's pretty awful and I definitely feel lied to, cheated and robbed. All that money and I'm still having to use my Pixel camera for work bc this one sucks.

Otherwise you would mention that Android Auto is not working,...that fingerprint sensor works every third time,....that wireless Samsung DEX has half of second of lag,....that it does not charge if you are using it at the same time,....that S-Pen works extremly poorly to the point that is useless,........

    What about shutter speed? Or shutter lag? Reviewers rarely touch upon this subject with Samsung phones. I believe Samsung still has issues when trying to capture moving objects such as children or animals in photography.

    Horrible review because of the wallpaper on the S20, absolutely horrible! JK!!! Gotem.... Naw bro great review of the phone, your reviews of phones and stuff are absolutely something else. I can't even describe words. I don't know if my iPhone 7 Plus will last longer because of this phone. It still works good, but it's getting outdated. I want a newer phone but my mom always has to get the older phones from 2016/ 2017. Can't get anything newer because all she cares about is her top of the line crap. Anyways great video

    With that
    kind of price, they should include the Spen and case as part of the package. The S21 Ultra's price should be reduced significantly now it is confirmed the phone has heating issue and the adaptive refresh rate is causing startled problem. The battery life is also not much better than the S20 ultra as claimed.

Just big big talks, zillion dollars company. Need to use phone as garbage use n throw, but backup precious data on cloud.
