The smartphone contains an excellent design, immersive display, great battery life, and breathtaking cameras. Following are some of the key characteristics of the Samsung S21 Ultra:
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra doesn’t differ much from its predecessor but has improved in some areas. The phone design looks more beautiful and slicker now, and the camera hump looks good though it necessitates you buy a case for the device. The front screen has been curved around the edges slightly, making phone usage easier. The in-screen fingerprint button is 1.7x larger. It also comes in amazing colors: Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, Phantom Brown, Phantom Titanium, and Phantom Navy.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED display screen, which is the best screen compared to its competitors. The 120Hz dynamic screen refresh rate is marvelous, making the scrolling and game-playing super smooth and addicting. It is also the first Galaxy device in which Samsung has introduced its famous S-pen. Although you need to buy the S-pen and its case holder separately, it works pretty well with the device and can make your experience smoother and richer. Samsung has now also introduced S-pen Pro, which has many features.
The most talked about part of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is probably its cameras. It supports a 108MP wide sensor camera, two 10MP telephoto shooters, and a 12MP ultra-wide camera.

The device doesn’t lag or overheat when running multiple apps simultaneously or playing games packing heavy graphics.
