New Device launching in 2021
Cameras are the main star of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. There are a new-generation 108-megapixel primary camera,12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and two telephoto cameras.
Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has a mighty impressive set of rear cameras, and all of them have important roles to play, unlike phones with dedicated depth or macro cameras.
The selfie camera is also equally competent here.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is also a true-blue flagship with cutting-edge components like the Exynos 2100 5G SoC.
It managed to run graphically intensive games such as Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends at the QHD+ resolution.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra also fully supports Samsung’s S Pen, which is sold as an accessory.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G doubles up as an excellent device for media consumption.
The 6.8-inch AMOLED display gets incredibly bright, and colours look rich and punchy.
The 5,000mAh battery capacity is the same as what the Galaxy S20 Ultra had, and easily lasts for more than a full day of heavy to medium usage.
The new design makes the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G look way better than previous models.
Samsung’s new contour-cut design for the camera module is unique, and manages to mask the camera bulge pretty well.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is also very slim and light, measuring 7.6mm in thickness and weighing just 173g.
The flattened top has a ‘Designed for Reno’ inscription, while the dual-SIM tray, USB Type-C port, and a single speaker are on the bottom.
Build quality is also very good, despite this phone having a plastic frame, and the rear cameras barely protrude at all.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is the MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, which is built on a 7nm process featuring four ARM Cortex-A77 and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores.
It has an integrated 5G modem and supports wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
The Reno 5 Pro runs ColorOS 11.1, which is based on Android 11.
I found the display to be excellent. Brightness was more than adequate, and even under sunlight, the content was very legible.
In the real world, the Reno 5 Pro 5G is able to handle demanding apps and games with relative ease.
The Oppo Reno 5 Pro 5G is a good package overall for the price. It has a premium design, a vivid display, long battery life, very fast charging, and fairly competent cameras.
Video quality could be improved though, especially in low light, and I would like to see stabilization at 4K. It wouldn’t have hurt to have stereo speakers either.
