I moved away from Samsung after the Note 3 and went over to Motorola. I had a number of good years with Moto but Lenovo began taking away the features I moved over to them for. So when I saw that even as a current Verizon customer I could get a S21 Ultra w/512K for a $600 discount I jumped ship back to Samsung.


I see most of the posts are exclaiming outrage over the lack of removable storage and over the years my microsd card has become a place to hold a bunch of files I hardly ever use because of my use of cloud storage to keep all my photo's and music. Will I miss having the perceived security of having those files on a memory card and the definite ease of moving it from phone to phone? Sure, but by getting a phone with 512k I'm not really impacted. I do realize that this may be a legitimate deal breaker for some but with the way I use my phone it isn’t...especially at the discounted price.


To me I interpret the lack of a charger as Samsung just being cheap and thinking that they can get away with it because of Apple but in reality it's of no impact to me.  I have more chargers than I can shake a stick at and I think I'm going to go wireless since I also have wireless in my truck.

 

It's been so long that you've forgotten but the one feature that I really miss is the removable battery and I really wish that would come back.


I'm excited and hopeful that Samsung will take Google and Qualcomm up on their plans to ensure that operating system boosts for new SoCs, beginning with the 888, are available for a longer period of time, four (4) years.


Other than the Camera Mod for my Moto I haven’t had a good phone camera in years so I'm looking forward to that with the S21.


And of course I'm excited to experience the performance and display boost that the S21 Ultra will give me over my previous phones...This will be the first real flagship I've owned since my Note 3.


Admittedly had I not stumbled upon the Verizon deal I would probably not have considered the phone but at that price even with feature issues I couldn't turn it down.

Being a former Note user, after reading about the S-Pen usage on the S21 I don't see this as a Note replacement so hopefully the Note line will continue.

No MicroSD and no MST. The two features that give Samsung the advantage over One Plus. DISSAPOINTMENT

Samsung removed MST after the Gear S3 watch, I wasn't aware that they still had it in their phones.  The rational at that time was that most pay stations no longer needed MST, especially in europe but here in the sticks of NH it is still needed.

people are starting to "accept" these changes if you read the comments through the thread. I refuse to pay for stupid monthly cloud storage.
