So the battery capacity for the S21 series devices are we follows:
S21 = 4000mAh
S21+ = 4800mAh
S21U = 5000mAh

My S21U says it has a 4855mAh capacity. So did Samsung round up for marketing purposes of did my device get mistakenly built with the incorrect battery?

Can anyone else verify the battery capacity of their S21U?

I have a S21 it states 4000mAh. But it also says it was tested under 3rd party lab conditions, and the minimum capacity is 3880mAh.

So I'm thinking your 4855mAh is the minimum capacity.

Makes sense. Kind of like installed and usable memory. I was hoping that was the case and not paying the Ultra price for a Plus battery. :face_with_tears_of_joy:

Obviously I didn't but thanks. 8)

One could still gripe that it's misleading. They market it as 5k then a disclaimer after you've purchase the phone (not everyone can go to a store to get a hands on before purchasing). But it's like any other major corp. All car manufacturers give you horsepower at the crank but that doesn't factor in drivetrain loss which equals wheel HP.

I digress. Again thanks for straightening me out.

That's why I prefer shopping for motorcycles ... they provide RWHP stats :)
