I purchased the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the main reason I wanted the device (aside from an upgrade from the Note10+) was for the quad camera. Upon turning on the camera, I noticed a choppy, slow, laggy transition just barely moving the phone left to right. Has anyone else had the chance to experience this yet? It's like you have beer goggles on, it's that noticeable. There was an update by the third day of owning the device and the problem is still present. Did Samsung rush this device's hardware?
Since using apps that require video, i.e. the camera, Google Duo, Zoom, the front facing camera shows line streaks on the screen. This is a problem, because the end-user also sees the same ***** quality displayed on their side with lines flashing in a vertical fashion.
I noticed overheating on its first use but nothing since. The camera quality is great--aside from the default "auto-mode-change" I figured out how to disable--but it is slow, laggy and doesn't feel worth the $1,200.
I'm more so less enthusiastic about getting a replacement if you're on your 3rd phone with a concurrent hardware issue. I might just not ship in my Note10+ or go with the outdated Note20 Ultra.
In addition, when using Google Duo for video chat, my front-facing camera shows line streaks that can be seen by the end-user. That's pretty bad. Whatever it is, it's a rushed device that is hyped up for nothing. That camera should be the most impressive feature as well as an updated Gallery or something. Weak.
Have S21(Snapdragon) as well as my wife
The camera is super laggy upon opening. Seems like the scene optimizer tries to do his job but do it super laggy
Super annoying, came from S20 where the camera behaved much better
