- John Zilch: I might have pre-ordered the S21 Ultra already BUT IT DOESN’T COME WITH A SD CARD SLOT SO GET BENT SAMSUNG!!
- x2ice25: lack of an SD enlargement was a no deal for me. Samsung appears to neglect that in case you supply one thing that others (primarily apple) dont then individuals may contemplate your product, however now that samsung s21 has principally change into an iphone i would as nicely rethink one other model. SD enlargement is the ONLY motive i by no means went apple
- Painfully_Candid: I believe the pre-order numbers are signaling to Samsung that the S21 line is NOT all that standard. Seriously, as an S10 person, I don’t see sufficient motive to replace to an S21. I’d lose the microSD enlargement and the headphone jack. Why give these up for meh digicam enchancment and meh efficiency enchancment? I’m nonetheless ready for a digicam that’s SO good that there isn’t a competitors. The S21 has demonstrated it’s merely ONE of the perfect.
- Anthorama: They lowered the value of their line, the s21 is identical value as a final 12 months s20 5g and even cheaper. They will certainly promote extra.
- sonicsynth2000: even with the insane commerce in values at launch i doubt many individuals are gonna get a flagship cellphone this 12 months
