I love this phone! I also loved my Note 20 but, alas, I was a little tough on it and had to get a new phone. The main reason I use my phone is for photos and social media. I'm in love with the night sky and the night shots on both phones are superb but you can't beat the Space Zoom on the S21. Look at the pic I took of the moon with no tripod... WOW. I only charge my phones to 80% to be kind on the battery and I've been getting about a day and a half from a charge. Not too shabby. I miss not having a space for my s-pen but at least this phone supports it on it's gorgeous 120hz screen. EXACTLY the phone for me
This phone has excellent battery life, takes phenomenal pictures and has awesome features. I've been extremely pleased with my purchase. I did an upgrade from the galaxy S8 to the S21 and there are a number of really noticeable changes that I can mention.
One-the battery life is so much better on this phone. Even when using it I rarely go below the 50% mark. With the S8 I was constantly worried about the battery dying when I had barely even used it. As a nurse I now, by the end of my 12 hr shift, always have at least an 80% battery life left with the S21!
Second the pictures this phone takes are hands down some of the best pictures I've taken on a cell phone. I was on a motorcycle with my boyfriend driving 60+ mph and the pictures I took came out crystal clear...those I posted with this review. All around I'm very happy with this phone.
Love this phone. Sleek design. I went from a Samsung S9+ to this! I thought my S9+ took amazing pictures but the camera on the phone is awesome. Can’t wait to travel and take pics with this phone. Well worth the buy if you haven’t upgraded your phone in 2-3 years. Probably not much of a difference if you have the S20 Ultra. Cheaper than S20 Ultra as well!
Love my new phone. So many features to learn. The camera is awesome! The phone is sturdy and a heavier weight than my other phones. Nice size screen. The volumn on this phone is crazy compared to my old phone which was pretty low. So far, so good. Overall, I'm very pleased.

Beautiful vivid screen but it uses too much battery on the vivid setting, so what good is that? The front camera is within the screen, so if you're using Duo for a phone conversation, whoever you're talking to probably has a bullseye on his forehead where the dark camera circle appears. The phone is heavy. And bulky. And the on-off buttons are very very hard to use. My data transferred as if by a miracle. But especially in contacts, the format has changed making it hard to find some phone numbers and addresses. Strangely, the Samsung text settings don't work right. For instance, when I tried to set an individual notification for Mary, somebody else's contact info appears, so there's no way to set Mary's notification sound. On the plus side, the speaker is excellent. It's super fast. The screen is pleasantly large. Photo editing is sophisticated and will take a bit of research but it appears to offer a myriad of options. I bought the phone at Best Buy (in a nightmare scenario, but that's not the phone's fault) and when I asked for help with it at Best Buy, they sent me to the Verizon store. Verizon refused to help me because they said that Best Buy has been sending Best Buy customers to Verizon when Best Buy should be helping its own customers. So apparently I'm penalized for purchasing from Best Buy and am without a resource to resolve the phone's peculiar quirks.
I recently upgraded from a Galaxy S9 and there are many new upgrades that make this phone worth it. The screen resolution is significantly better and the camera is a great selling point. The software runs smoother with the transitioning between screens and the refresh rate is higher. The battery is significantly better and I have had my phone last a day and a half before needing to be charged again.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Review: The Most Maxed Out Phone for the MoneyThe iPhone 12 Pro Max might have slightly faster performance, but the S21 Ultra has got the bag, the toolbox, and big 'ole 10x zoom lens.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review: All of Android for somewhat lessThe Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is less expensive than the S20 Ultra, and it's still Samsung's best and most full-featured phone to date. It is very big, though.
A:AnswerYou can use Google Duo. It is Google version of FaceTime. You can't FaceTime directly with an apple phone. You need an application to it. My daughter and her Nana use duo all the time to talk. Since I have a android phone and she had an iPhone.
