Hello friends, how is the performance of your device's camera after the February update (G998BXXU1AUB3)? Do you still have the problem of overheating? What about the problem of camera lag and Video 4k 60fps lag? Are the problems solved?

I did actually back up some stuff but never bothered restoring, pain when it comes to trying to remember every password for each app but worth it in the long run.

Mines the S21 Ultra 512GB version too and I never used smart switch. I did have issues getting the update when I first got it as it was stuck in the EUR CSC and wouldn't allow me to run certain Samsung apps such as this members one. I found a fix which helped the next day and its been running fine since then. I've never had it overheat even after 10mins recording of UHD 60fps video or benchmarking and gaming for several hours. My screen on time seems excellent and typically runs from 9 to 12 hours depending on my use.

I prefer to use my phones fresh without backups, just log into my Samsung and Google accounts ofcourse.

As always, this release has come to the stock Samsung, non carrier phones, first. In the U.K. that is devices with CSC code BTU.

Carrier branded devices will receive the update after certification by those carriers and may take a few days to a week before their release.

Very well. My S21 Ultra reached 45 degrees .And the top frame of the device was hot.

 

You do not have a problem with lagging in 4k 60 frames video recording?

A quick update after day 1 of performing a factory reset and the difference to my S21 is astounding ! I have been struggling to get a days use, and usually less than 5 hours screen on time to a full charge.

The phone is relearning again so might take a few days, although today my phone has been on nearly 12 hours, more than 4 hours SOT and I still have 57% battery.

a complete change around from factory reset and installing apps individually.

it is early days... and still a couple of battery days optimising... but these results are very hopeful 😀😀

Excellent news smiley!

It may take 2 or 3 full charge cycles to reach its potential but I am glad the Factory Data Reset and fresh install is working for you.

If only more users would do it... there would be fewer complaints.

When you buy a flagship premium phone for 1.5k, you shouldn’t think, how make it work properly and bother yourself with factory resets and stuff. That is a bizarre absurd

Hi my battery life is excellent I easily get 8/10 hours of SOT  and gets me through the day with heavy usage. I haven't experienced any overheating problem but I did notice the 4k 60ps camera blurr when I play the video it seems quite blurry but apart from from I had no other problem and I love my s21 ultra.
