Anyone that knows me on here will know that I had to part with my amazing S20 because of truly terrible battery life. I still have my tab s7 which I love but at the moment I am stuck with a iphone 12 pro max. I bought it due to having class leading battery life which has lived up to expectation. However the screens have been absolute rubbish, I am on my second one now both have screen retention and this one had green tint. I am now looking for a new phone It could be anything but my main choice is either iphone 11 because it has an lcd screen and good battery. I am also looking at the s21 plus, however I am worried about more green tint as its an OLED and of course battery life. I have someone who is kindly running some tests on an s21 ultra so hopefully my battery worries will be answered. I would like to hear from anyone with an s21 series phone good or bad points. I don't want to make another mistake with phones. I want to purchase my next phone and keep it for a long time. I just need good battery and stability nothing else. If you have got to the bottom of this without slamming your tablet case shut or closing your phone then thanks for reading 👍 p.s no haters please I don't think iphone or samsung is better than one another it's simply down to preference I have had alot of bad luck with phones lately mainly because I am picky but for the outrageous prices you pay across the board these days I expect it to be perfect unless obviously your not buying a flagship.

When buying any phone AshTabS7 there is always a risk that you may get a substandard unit or that software updates can cause a problem or two but assuming you are not unlucky I must recommend the S21 Ultra as it has a screen that NO iPhone can match in terms of brightness and contrast and sheer punch and the battery life is great. I am sometimes doing 2 photo and video sessions a day plus a lot of web surfing and messaging and photo editing and I still only have to charge the phone once every 24 hours which is good enough for me. The camera is the jewel in the crown taking stunning photos in all conditions. The video is very good in well lit conditions but a little noisy in low lit conditions and needs software attention in my opinion. The phones stability is rock solid also and it is blazingly fast. Mine has 16Gb of RAM and can handle any multitasking I throw at it and the processing is flawless. It got a little warm for the first week but now runs very cool nearly all the time only warming a little when using the camera. I would not swap it for the world AshTabS7 and I hope that whatever phone you do choose serves you well. 👍👍

I still have the S10 😆 so no help. Just wanted to say hi and sorry about your bad luck with phones atm.
I use the tab S7 so much that upgrading my S10 phone isn't a big priority yet, but I'm interested in what people's thoughts are on the recent phones.

If all you are bothered about is battery life and stability then I'd strongly recommend a Moto G Power. Go and try one out at your local phone shop if they carry that model.

Yeah I can't fault the s21 ultra,I may be a bit biased because I own one but it truly is a beauty of a phone 😍.
I know you owned one already ash, hopefully you give it another try.
Failing that the pixel 5 has great battery and it's stock android if that's what you are looking for.
I'm getting the mi 11 LTE next ash, I'll let you know what it's like 😅

Thank you and hi, my s10 plus was one of the best phones I owned, not impressed with latest phones too much money not enough QC I will be staying away from the mega expensive phones as for me personally I don't use ultra or pro features so they don't really bring much to the table for me. Stilling fighting with apple for a refund I have learned that there customer service isn't so go after all, hopefully get a refund tonight and start looking for a phone

Have to concur here, ever since getting the Tab s7 plus, my phone dependence time dropped substantially. Have a new found appreciation for android again.
