I have to join here as well. FHD@60fps and quality is way worse compared to my Note8! Like what the heck?!?! I am past my cooling off period so cant return and cancel my contract which is bad enough being stuck with their sh1tty Crapsynos. So not only the video, but switching between x3 and x10 zoom is also screwed. You can clearly see the zoom being digital like 90% of the time! I kept holding off and only bought it based on some YT reviews. ***** them reviewers were definitely paid by Samdung. And yes, I am pissed because the camera was a major selling point for me.
I'm sending my S21+ back because the video camera is super blurry and grainy (epecially in low/indoor lighting on all lenses/settings) which is unacceptable for a 2021 phone costing £999 and considering my S20+ is MUCH better when it comes to video on any lense. Furthermore, what's also bad is the fact I can't use the flash on the ultrawide but I could on the S20+ and they even have the audacity to remove the SD card, forcing us to pay extra on more cloud storage.
I've heard the bad video quality is down the bit rate being low for some reason on the exynos(International) model, and the US and Canada don't have this issue. What's concerning is the phones received 2 or 3 updates in the last few weeks to 'improve the camera' but nothing has changed and the video is still terrible. This year is seemingly another epic fail from Samsung for us here in the UK, just like last years S20 series, they clearly haven't learned their lesson. I'm really considering switching to Apple or One Plus.
