      That is a great thing, this has more capabilities in a smartphone, the Galaxy S21 Ultra adds an S Pen which we can write on the phone without worrying about buying another phone, Samsung is doing the AWESOME THING HERE!!!

      @Starr Versace All in all, I think the phone is greate. I prefer the S over the note because of the larger battery, and all other features are greate, the only thing that can screw all this up, if the exynos performs below Snapdragon

    Does the phone at least come with the USB C cable in the box? I can only buy the charging brick from Samsung, so if in the box the USB C cable isn't included then I will have to buy from some 3rd party seller...

    Can someone tell me if the S21 Ultra is capable of recording HDR video in 4K 60 fps? With the previous S20 series you had to choose between HDR or 60 fps when recording 4K video. Hopefully the S21 Ultra can do both at the same time.

    I don't see the common downsides as downsides because I have unlimited cloud storage from my organization, wireless chargers, and wireless earbuds already. Not bragging, but the point is you gotta be quite privileged to deal with all the limitations of these new S lines. But then again, these S lines are probably made for the privileged and not for everybody.

    no compromises on the s21 ultra....except there's no expandable memory slot....but other than that, no compromises....oh, and no headphone jack....but other than that, no compromises...oh, and you have to also buy a charger even though you just dropped all that money on the phone because the device doesn't come with the product to charge it...

    To all the people complaining about no expandable storage or headphone jack, I was disappointed when they did it with the S6 but that was when we hardly had 32GB of storage.. now they have changed the game with 256 and even 512GB of storage.. and the no headphone jack is not an issue for me either considering I moved away from wired headphones a long time ago and now am using Bluetooth headphones.. overall the S21 Ultra is a great set and has a lot to offer so I am all for it. It is still a better buy than any Iphone for me.. and if the no headphone jack issue still bothers you go ahead and pre order any of these and you'll get the $200 galaxy earbuds for free. All together the latest Samsung flagships are still better purchases than any of the overpriced Iphones because they have a lot more to offer.

    The problem is after three years , the crucial security updates stop coming and your phone is pretty useless then and becomes wide open for hackers. A phone costing $1000 or thereabouts should have SIX years of guaranteed updates.

    I just want to say I'm not interested in Samsung products The Galaxy s21 it's better than last year's model but I'm not going to spend the money for that at all. I'd rather keep my Samsung Galaxy S10 which works well and is a great model because the 20 sucked. But if I was going to get a new phone I would get the ultra 21 No doubt or get the note 20 ultra that's it.

    No compromises? Hello... Where's the Micro SD slot? Sure this isn't a compromise to some, but there are a bunch of us out there that fully utilize this feature and this is a compromise, especially us photogs and videographers who want to take full advantage of 4K, and of course, 8K video. Samsung, you stink. And I'm not going to pay extra to house my data on the cloud, especially when I'm paying a premium for a flagship phone.
    Hopefully Samsung will bring the Micro SD card slot back on the S22 Ultra. If not, there are too many competitors out there who have the feature, and most at a cheaper phone price.
