The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra was released on January 29th, 2021 at a starting price of $1,199 which is only a 100 dollars more expensive than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The Ultra comes in a sleek design and offers faster performance from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chip. You get a dynamic 6.8 inch display and dual telephoto lenses for crazy zoom ability. Also, the S21 Ultra comes with the S pen which is the first time the pen has came with the phone. The S21 Ultra has some of the best camera qualities a phone has ever had and it could be the best phone camera out right now. The phone has the best battery life of any android yet and it could possibly be the best phone on the market.

There are some downsides to the S21 Ultra though. The price of the phone is very high, but it does come with the pen that you would usually have to buy separately. The phone doesn’t come with a charger, so unless if you have an old Samsung charger you will have to buy this yourself. The phone also doesn’t come with a microSD Card. The phone also seems to be a bit bulky and wide compared to other androids. This will be an inconvenience when trying to fit this phone in your pocket.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is beating the iPhone 12 in many categories. These phones are both very similar but things that set them apart are the camera qualities, performance and price. The Ultra has a much better camera and performance, but at the same time the price is a bit more. The Ultra also doesn’t come with everything you need, so you will have to spend more money. The iPhone 12 is lacking compared to the Ultras performance and camera quality, but it isn’t to far behind. The iPhone 12 has a better price and everything you need comes with the phone.

In my opinion the price of the S21 Ultra is a bit too extreme. At a price of approximately 1200 dollars you still are missing some of the things you need for the phone to continue to work. If you are willing to spend the extra money for the best performance and camera quality phone then this is the perfect phone for you. If you want to save money and want a little lacking performance and camera quality phone then I would recommend the iPhone 12. I would consider the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra the best android out right now, but if they lowered the price you could possibly get more buyers.
