Design and Build
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra build is similar to that of the Plus with Glass front (Gorilla Glass Victus) which is hard enough to survive drops but a screen protector is still required. The back is made from the same Gorilla glass that is on the front and an aluminium frame. It also has IP68 dust/water resistant (up to 1.5m for 30 mins) rating for those oops moments when the phone is dropped in water. The phone is quite large at 165.1×75.6×8.9mm and weighs in at 227g, which is not so comfortable for small hands.
The phone’s screen is a huge 6.8″ Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with a refresh rate 120Hz it is also the only one in the series that has a 1440p resolution. It also comes equipped with HDR10+ support and has a peak brightness of 1500 nits to make it a brightness monster that can be viewed well under direct sunlight. At 1440x3200px resolution and an aspect ratio of 20:9 with 515 pixels per inch, even the smallest of details can be visible. One of the features is an always-on display which will come in handy for those in need of long viewing.
User Interface and Performance
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G comes installed with the latest Android 11 operating system skinned with Samsung’s own One UI 3.1. The new One UI 3.1 does not interfere too much with the native Andriod 11 with is welcome as the two now work well in tandem.
The user interface feels fast thanks to the Exynos 2100 (5 nm) with Octa-core CPU (1×2.9 GHz Cortex-X1 & 3×2.80 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.2 GHz Cortex-A55) processor. Everyday use of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will so much better. Gaming will also be a breeze with the Mali-G78 MP14 GPU.

Shotting in daylight out of the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s main camera is very appealing. You get a wide dynamic range and a healthy dose of colour saturation, though that last bit has been tuned down ever so slightly.
The night shots and low light image quality is quite good. It exposes well and exhibits a wide dynamic range even before resorting to Night mode processing. The selfie camera is a 40 MP, f/2.2, 26mm (wide), 1/2.8″, 0.7µm with PDAF. The S21 Ultra goes for much sharper and grittier detail and the Dynamic range is nicely wide, and backlit scenes aren’t an issue either.
