Most use cases. And if it's not a clear case, color doesn't matter. Didn't mind at all ordering the black Ultra. I'll buy both clear and opaque cases but phone color shouldn't be a priority unless your go naked/clear case. BTW count me as one of the few who don't like the silver. It looks REALLY silver without anything to distinguish it from solder wire color.
Okay, a few reviews have mentioned ads.
Is this something we can disable or not? What's the full story here? Starting to feel a little concerned about them...
I mean, if they're only in Samsung apps, I don't plan to use Samsung apps where I can replace them with Google apps, but if they're going to just pop up in my notification panel once in a while, that could get annoying fast. If it's once in a super rare while, fine, but if it's even remotely frequent enough, that'll give me serious pause.
Can't believe Samsung thinks this is okay to do...
like you, i'm bewildered why they did it.
the only answer i can come up with is this: with the base models, they may need fun colors to make them more marketable.
with the top-of-the-line model, they figured that essentially enthusiasts would buy these, and even without interesting colors, we'd just swallow hard, gripe a little, and place our orders
I felt like that with pixel 4xl. Husband got that and I moved to S10+ and prefer it hands down.Had the P5 and sent it back due to the size, simply too small. Really disappointed in Google that there was no P5XL this year. While there have been rumors and grumbling of a Pixel 5 Pro, I'm taking that with a grain of salt. While the camera is Google's main selling point for the line, I felt this was the time to try something new.
It's to control the cost of manufacturing. For each product, they have to guess how much demand there will be so they know how many to manufacture. If they make too few, they delay or lose sales revenue. If they make too many, they not only tie up resources that aren't yet useful but could have been immediately useful elsewhere, but also incur extra costs for storage.like you, i'm bewildered why they did it.
They're big enough to think anything's okay to do. And they're right...folks will bend over and purchase their phones no matter what they do. They have a huge pack of whales to rely on

When they manufacture the same product in several colors, they need to guess the demand separately for each color. That's much harder to predict, and they can err in both directions at once--they can make too many of one color and too few of another, so they pay both kinds of extra costs. That extra cost gets subsidized partly by Samsung and partly by the customers.
So Samsung has to analyze, for each product, whether the potential extra sales from offering multiple colors outweighs the extra cost of providing that choice.
Even providing two colors introduces the possibility of manufacturing too many of one and too few of the other. You still need to perform a detailed analysis of the cost and benefit of that choice (as Samsung's marketing department undoubtedly did) to tell whether or not it's worth the cost.we had zero options
Appreciate this simple "day out with the S21 camera" video. It's a nice change of pace from the constant comparisons. It's just the S21 out capturing stuff, and honestly, based on this, I'm pretty happy with the results.
In the U.K. Samsung are offering the Galaxy S21 Ultra 512GB in a range of colours...
- Phantom Black
- Phantom Silver
- Phantom Titanium
- Phantom Navy
- Phantom Brown
The other models, S21 & S21+, all come in a range of different colour choices also.

I don't zoom in on buildings nor trees, but with my S20FE I do use the zoom. Example being at a soccer tournament for my son. I finally used my FE to record the game on a tripod. The standard camera was too far for the action, so I used the 3x Zoom to get in a bit closer. Also, for pictures in the past of people standing, I can either stand realllllllyyyyy close, or just zoom in about 2x.https://youtu.be/-1fFf4Xy92E
At 4:22 the reviewer mentions the skin smoothing.
It's frustrating that these reviews spend did much you focusing on the zoom capabilities. Does everyone go around zooming in on buildings and trees? I'd be surprised if I had more than 10 photos in my whole Google photos library where I used zoom. I get it that Samsung makes a big deal out of their zoomimg telephoto lenses, but I have to believe most people take more pictures of their family, friends, pets, kids etc. Video looks promising though, and will probably stomp the pixel.
The more reviews i watch, I'm actually considering getting the plus instead of the ultra model. I don't care about zoom capabilities, and i actually prefer the flat screen. The resolution really doesn't make a difference to me since I'm not watching much content that's over 1080p anyways.
