The Samsung Galaxy S21 is the next generation of mobile phones from the South Korean electronics giant. With a powerful chipset and an advanced user interface, the S 21 is set to be a real winner on the global mobile phone market. This article looks at the three aspects that make up the Samsung S 21 and provides a brief Samsung S21 review.
A first look at the new Samsung phone shows that it is an impressive phone. With a full QWERTY keyboard and a large, high definition screen, the look of the S 21 is both modern and classic. Aesthetically, the phone also looks great – it has a nice flat, metallic finish that will match most skins. In terms of software, the phone has access to Android 4.3, so it should work very well with most current applications. The only minor disappointment with the software is that it does not have access to the Microsoft Office Suite.
A second aspect of the review considers the battery life of the handset. Many reviews have claimed that the S 21’s battery life is substantially shorter than the life of the iPhone and many other handsets. The S 21 seems to cope better with drains in the low to moderate range, though this depends upon the amount of use the phone has – more use means more drain. One final aspect of this area is that the S 21 incorporates a power saving modes option, which reduces the battery life even further.
With Android being the dominant operating system for the Galaxy Tab, it is little surprise that the new Samsung handset also uses the same operating system. With the new Samsung S 21, users can now enjoy not only the benefits of Android, but also the complete suite of Samsung apps. The apps are very well suited to this new phone and they include everything from games to music players to access to the Samsung email service. The S Pen feature of the handset allows you to take full advantage of this powerful tool and this enables you to write on the screen as well as tapping on the pen.
One of the main differences between the S Pen and the stylus is that the stylus can be used for a selection of applications including taking a picture, as well as writing and viewing images. The advantage of the S Pen is that it offers a greater extent of control over how you will use the phone. It also means that you can write in different languages including Korean, Japanese, and Spanish. However, one of the limitations of this application is that it is only suitable for a single take and image is unable to change this.
The next screen allows users to view the JPEG image file created by their selected camera or via a URL directly. To share this JPEG image, you can either email it or share it using various formats such as the Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. One of the key features of the S Pen is that it supports multi-tasking which means that multiple applications can be launched at once without any delay thanks to the refresh rate of the device. This was one of the key features that set the S Pen apart from the existing counterparts and we are sure that as Samsung continue to develop their devices, these capabilities will be made available to more users.
Amazing iPhone 11 Pro Max (Midnight Green)
The brand new iPhone 11 Pro max in midnight green, nice and early super safe style. It comes up for that would be appreciated. Now, if you’re interested in the regular iPhone 11, if you have those as well that video is gonna, be going live straight after this one.
So if you want to make sure that you see that first and don’t miss, it then be sure to subscribe and hit that Bell icon, but let’s, get straight to the unboxing. This video is sponsored by tech. 21, get 10 percent of all cases, using the special link in the description below right.
So first up, the box is actually quite different. What we’ve had traditionally it’s, actually in all black, with a picture of the iPhone. I quite like the stealthy looker. Traditionally it has been white plastic off and look at that.
This is, of course, the midnight green version. This is the one that most people wanted to see, but we also have a Space Gray, a gold as well as a silver. I’ve covered those colors in my hands-on video, which I’ll, be linking in the cards in the description.
Okay, I got ta say I do like this matte finish. We’ll, come back to that later. Let’s, have a look at what else we get inside the box. So first up there is some people work, some white Apple stickers.
I really wish Apple – would have color coded stickers. So you know like midnight green Apple stickers, because we & # 39. Ve got the midnight green iPhone, but hey, maybe someday. We’ll. Have that there’s.
Also a SIM card ejector tool. We’ve, got some ear. Pods, these are lightning ear, pods and then we & # 39. Ve got some things that are a little bit different to what we’ve traditionally had. Firstly, we & # 39.
Ve got a lightning to USB type-c cable. Traditionally, we’ve had a lightning to USB type, a cable, and there was a lot of people who are saying that oh the new iPhones are gonna have USB type-c, and I was like no, that’s, not gonna happen.
It’s, gonna be on the other side, not the lightning connector. I mean there’s, lots of accessories that currently still supports lightning and it looks like Apple – was gonna be holding on today, just a little bit longer.
It also makes a lot of money for Apple as well, of course, but another reason why we’ve got lightning to USB type-c is because, finally, finally, we have a fast charger included out of the box. I mean this is something that I’ve personally, been complaining about for such a long time that we should have had a fast charger included since the iPhone that 10 was released, and you know having to go and by a fast charger when you’re already spending quite a decent amount on your iPhone is not great.
So I’m glad that Apple has won. Me now decided to include an 18 watt fast charger with the iPhone 11 Pro, as well as the iPhone 11 Pro max. Of course, we still do have wireless charging supported that’s around 7.
5 watts, so it’s, the same speed as what we had last year. Let’s, get to the phone now. What’s interesting? Is that usually we have plastic that colors both the back and the front of the device, but this time it is only at the front, so screen pretty rough and he just fell on the table.
What a fail! Now let’s start by looking at the display. At first glance, it does look very similar to what we’ve got on the iPhone in there 10 s max, which I do have here. I should seriously work for blue pizza, but anyway, so we & # 39.
Ve got the small bezel strip all around along with that notch. So Apple haven’t gone for a completely bezel s design this year. It’s, something that we might see next year, but I really didn’t expect Apple to go with a pop-up or something like that.
So what we’ve seen right now are a punch out, so they have stuck with the notch here. Having said that, this is still a very, very good display. This has been improved compared to last year and it’s. What Apple are calling a super Retina XDR display now? The reason for that is that it’s brighter it’s up to 800 nits or if you’re watching HDR content, because HDR 10 is supported.
You can get up to 1200 nits of brightness. It’s based on OLED technology, so colors are very, very vibrant. We’ve, got very deep blacks. With the contrast ratio of 2 million to 1, you & # 39. Ve got around a 458 PPI pixel density, so details also very very sharp, but this year there is no 3d touch, so Apple had removed the 3d touch layer.
For me personally, I don’t. Think it’s, going to be that much of a big deal because you can still access some of the 3d touch features or give you some haptic feedback when you press and hold on certain items.
One area where I use it the most is on the keyboard to move my cursor around, and this is something that you can still do by pressing and holding on at the spacebar. It’s, something that I got quite used to using the iPhone 10 or so it’s, not going to be a huge deal for me personally, it might be for you now let’s, move over onto the back And look at the design, so it does look quite different compared to last year here at the back.
So let me just bring in my iphone tennis max here. So there’s, a few things that you’ll notice right away. Of course, we have a very different camera module. The Apple logo has also moved into the center on the iPhone 11 and we no longer have the iPhone logo here towards the bottom like we had previously, because we are here in the UK.
Unfortunately, we still do have some of these labels, although they are a lot more faint on the new iPhone which I do like, and the other big thing that you’ll notice is that we & # 39. Ve got a glossy glass back on the iPhone at tennis max on the 11pro max we’ve got this matte finish, which I really do like.
So this isn’t going to attract as many fingerprints as the glossy back on the iPhone 10s max. However, we do have a glossy elements for the camera module now. This is actually still one piece of glass here at the back, so it’s not like this.
Glossy piece of glass has been stuck on or anything it is still part of the same glass. Making it durable and Apple are saying that the glass on the iPhone 11 is the toughest glass on any smart phone right now now.
This is something that I’m personally, not going to be testing, because I don’t do durability. Tests, but I’m sure my buddies Zach from jerry-rig everything is gonna, be doing some durability tests and we’ll, see how tough this glass actually is now for the frame we do have a stainless steel frame like we had In previous years we have an aluminium or aluminum frame on the iPhone 11 regular, and there is ip68 water and dust resistance.
However, this has been improved compared to last year and now you can dip this in water up to four meters compared to two meters that still comes under ip68. Apparently so maybe we can call it IP 68. 0.
5. I don’t know, but that is good to see that we & # 39. Ve got these improvements. Now let’s. Talk about the cameras. This is something that I’m, most excited about the camera module design. I wasn’t too keen on when I saw all of the elite renders, but in person it is growing on me a little bit it’s.
Still not my preferred layouts, but I’m sure there’s, some functional reasons why Apple has gone for this and we for the first time on an iPhone, had a triple camera setup. This is something that I was really hoping for, and I’m excited that we & # 39.
Ve got this camera set up here. All three of these are 12 megapixels, and let’s break these down. There is a primary camera which is going to be use forward of your main shots. This has optical image stabilization with an F 1.
8 aperture. Then there is a telephoto camera which is going to give you 2 times optical zoom. Now we also had a telephoto camera. Last year, but the difference this year is that we & # 39. Ve got a wider aperture.
It’s, an F 2.0 aperture compared to the F 2.4 that we had last year that’s gonna let in a lot more light. This also has optical image stabilization and it’s. Gon na be used for your portrait, shots, which I really liked on the iPhone a 10s Mac.
So I can’t, wait to test these out and then we & # 39. Ve got something that I’m most excited about, and that is the ultra wide. This has an F, 2.4 aperture and has 120 degree angle of view. Ultra wide cameras are something that I think all smartphones should have now and they allow you to get so much more into your shot.
They let you get some very, very interesting resource and I simply cannot wait to test out all of these cameras. Definitely let me know in the comments below with supersets our camera comparison. You’d, like you to do versus the iPhone 11 Pro Max and make sure you have subscribed and hit that bad icon.
So as soon as it’s live you don’t, miss it, and I’ll put the cameras. We also have some new features. We now have a dedicated night mode. This is something that we’ve. Seen lots of others do previously and it’s where you have multiple exposures to give you better low-light images once again, something that I’m, really looking forward to testing and then the other thing that we’ve got.
Is improvements in video? We’ve got up to 4k 60 frames, a second on all of these cameras and what’s even more impressive? Is that we & # 39. Ve got extended, dynamic range on all of these cameras as well.
Up to 60 frames a second now you guys may have heard me say before that. Personally, when it comes to recording video on a smartphone, I think the iPhones have the best quality hands-down. The dynamic range is so so good and everything just really works.
Well, now that we & # 39, ve got extending dynamic range up to 4k 60 frames. A second I’m, just like you can tell. I’m, just very very excited to try these out now. Some of the camera features that didn’t get too much attention at the keynotes are, firstly, photo captures outside the frame, so this is switched off by default, but you can turn it on and what that’s.
Gon na do is when you take a shot from the main camera it’s. Also gonna take a shot from the ultra wide, and this is gonna. Allow you to reframe your shot after the act now, as you can imagine, that can potentially mean very, very useful and you & # 39.
Ve also got audio zoom. So if you’re, recording video and you zoom in then it’s. Gon na make that sound, clearer. It’s, something that we did see on at the note 10 of the note 10 plus. So we’ll, see how it compares now.
Let’s talk a little bit about the front-facing camera, which is also being improved. This time we have a 12 megapixels, so we & # 39. Ve got a high resolution with an F 2.2 aperture and that high resolution firstly means that you’re gonna be able to get 4k up to 60 frames, a second from the front-facing camera as well.
So if you’re, somebody who likes to vlog, then I’m sure this is gonna, be great great news and then we & # 39. Ve got a slightly wider front-facing camera as well. So if you are the front-facing camera, if you tilt the phone to landscape mode, it’s, gonna automatically go wider and that’s.
Gon na be shooting at 12 megapixels. Otherwise it’s. Gonna be sticking to around 7 megapixels. I quite like this. This is something that we’ve also got on the Galaxy devices from Samsung, because you don’t, always want a super wide shot.
If you’re, just taking a shot of yourself, you don’t want it to go super wide and make things look a little bit distorted. But if you & # 39, ve got a group shot. Then it’s. Nice to switch to that white camera, you can also manually switch between these two, depending on your preference.
I’m, definitely glad that Apple now have this. I will, of course, be testing this out a lot more. There is also slow motion from the front-facing camera, which Apple are calling slow fees. I’m sure they’re gonna be useful to some people.
I personally don’t, see myself using them. I don’t wan na be negative about it, because I know there’s. Gon na be some people out there who maybe have really long hair and want to do some funky things I’m, not gonna I mean.
Maybe I could like get a blow dryer and you know just have my beard go or cut? No, not gonna do it now within the knot shear as well. We do have an improved face ID sensor, so this is supposed to be around 30 %.
That’s, where I believe, and it’s, also supposed to work from more angles. It’s, not working from this fly angle. Here I still have to tilt it up slightly. I’ll. Compare it to the iPhone tennis max, but it does seem to be improved slightly yeah I mean, like I’m, only tilting it slightly and it’s already working.
So I’m not having to like kind of face it completely, so that has also been improved. We’ve got an ear piece here which acts as one of the two stereo speakers. The other one is here at the bottom, so we do have stereo speakers, but these have been improved.
So we & # 39. Ve got spatial audio this time with support for Dolby Atmos. So if you’re watching content on here a lot, then this is gonna. Give you more of an immersive experience as well as that on the bottom.
We do have the Lightning port. On the right hand, side there is a power button with a SIM card tray, so you do have space here for one SIM card, but you can get your sims using an e sim and on the left hand, side.
We have the volume buttons as well as the mute, switch nothing at the top. Now let’s. Talk about the internals a little bit. We do have, of course, the brand new latest and greatest apple, a 13 Bionic chip.
This is up to 20 % faster compared to the a12 and consumes up to 30 % less power, and when it comes to graphics, the GPU is also up to 20 % faster, but it’s up to 40 % more power efficient. So this should give you better battery life and Apple are claiming that you can get up to 5 hours more on this compared to the iPhone 10’s max now, of course, usage varies.
I’m, not sure of the exact size of the battery in here. The iPhone 11 pro max is also a little bit heavier compared to the previous iPhone. So I’m, assuming it is a larger battery size as well. But of course, I’ll, be testing this out in the long term, and I’ll, be giving you my thoughts on the battery life a little bit later on as well.
When it comes to the a13, I’m. Confident that it’s, gonna be one of the fastest chipsets out there Apple are claiming that it’s, the most powerful chipset in any smartphone right now for software we do have iOS 13 out of the box.
There’s, a few features that I really do like on it. One of my favorites is definitely dark mode, so you can switch to dark mode on here and that’s, gonna invert. Everything and make things a lot easier on the eyes.
I can definitely see myself using this there’s. Lots of other features as well, which we’ll, cover a little bit more in the full review now in terms of pricing and storage sizes. This still starts at 64 gigabytes.
Now, of course, it would have been better if it started at somewhere around 128 gigs, because I still think 64 gigs it’s, not enough for people these days, especially considering all of the 4k capabilities of this smartphone.
It would have been nice to have seen a larger base model, so we & # 39. Ve got the 64 to 5/6 and 512 gigabyte versions, and they are priced a little bit higher compared to what we had last year in the u.
s.. They are the same price as what we had on the iPhone 10s max and it seems like that is because of how bad the pound, the British Pound, has been hit because of all this brexit mess. So it’s, something that I guess was kind of expected.
However, you are gonna be paying a decent amount for these new iPhones. If you do go for the 512 gigabyte version, you’re looking at around 1,500 pounds, so that is the icon. 11 Pro max unboxing and detail.
First, look: what do you guys? Think of it and what content would you like me to do with this? Going forward? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts in terms of my first impressions.
The design has grown on me. I have to say – and I’m – very – very excited to test out those cameras. I am really looking forward to seeing how these will compare to some of the others out there. But of course, there’s.
Gonna be lots more content coming up on here with the iPhone 11 Pro max, as well as the other iPhones. If you want to see all of that, first then make sure you have subscribed.
