I was pretty excited for the S21 to release today but samsung definatly did a quick job of turming that excitement into disappointment. I went so far as to have everything in the cart and once on the payment page i decided i couldnt do it or wouldnt is more accurate.
There isnt reallt one great thing that stands out about this phone for me. The processer and ram upgrades are nice but saving 1/10th of a sec opening an app isnt that critical and the upgrades to the camera dont do anything for me i have better things to do than snap seffies all day or take hi res pictures of some girl from 100 yards away im to afraid to talk to. And how much better do you need the screen resolution i have a tv or even a laptop that are way better to watch stuff on....
There are however a few things about this phone that really and truly SUCK.
A. Lack of a micro sd card slot is something i cant quite understand. They say we can use the cloud but for i dont trust the cloud or like it. I cant access my files if i cant get online. I currently pay for the highest tier service from verizon and am in the 25th largest city in the us and depending where i am i sometine can barley manage a signal and other times i stuggle to simply open a webpage . Not to mention nobody is truly unlimited so all the dowoading and uploading (if you can even do it) eats up your all of your data.
B. The lack of a 3.5mm jack. I actually have some bluetooth headphones but my wired head phone with the inline amp sound way better and like others stated i can use them on the plane. I also dont have to recharge them ever. And i know you can use a usb c adapter but thats juat one more thing to carry and potentially lose.
C. S-pen??? Trying to pass off a dollar store stylus as an S-pen and for an extra $40 has really proven that samsung has no limit to how low they will sink to pocket an extra dollar. But hold on just wait the actual S-pen is otw. For what another $100? Sure hope they can fit the wireless charging coil in it somehow.
D. No charger because everyone has one... wait though doesnt this phone support a higher watt chaging standard than any previous phone? So where did everyone get these chargers from they allready have laying around to use???
Well i for one cant spend that much money and make that many compromises and pretend im hqppy avout it. So ill just keep using my old note 9 until somebody makes a phone with the features i want. And thats fine my happiness will come knowing samsung isnt getting my $1400 for their stripped down pathetic excuse of a way to rip people off phone...
