    9. My Quest

      So s21 is The Perfect Android !! *of course in US here in India we r still cursed with overpriced exynos *

      1. My Quest

        @Aditya Pratap Chakraborty no bro it doesn't ya it may seems to be close to sd 888 on numbers but in practical it isn't consistent and throttles after a span also cpu temp reach sky if u don't believe then visit for Arun Miani's channel

      2. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        exynos 2100 is literally the same as 888 watch the tech chap video

    14. Johnta' Jacobs

    15. Immortal_Show

    16. Lena Cheney

    18. The Earthanger

    19. Yanad Пичя

        ofc there's NFC

    21. 哥森

      Ummm, Marques, I know you probably won't respond to this, but just out of curiosity, I've noticed that you constantly look above your camera lens while filming, then quickly focus back down throughout your video...was just wondering why?

    22. Nicolas Alvarez

      shoul i upgrade to it from my iphone x?

    23. Ayub Khan

      Love you Samsung ❤️❤️

    24. AceElixir

      I just need money 😑

    26. David Bii

      Hey guys I looking for some help deciding on my first big phone purchase. I am looking to get this phone but I need help deciding with provider to have it with. I currently have cricket and I've heard that cricket runs off of att towers. Should i buy the phone and use it with cricket or start a new plan with att. Thanks

    27. RAEB01B

      I was called outdated and poor for using Android based phones versus iPhone. I'm like...I like android because of the customization...but is that relevant anymore?

    28. dopesheepify

      Please stop saying "calculus"

    29. M. Hill

      Thank you for this

    30. Naveed Saify

      Cant baer seeing that daft punk in the back


      my family is very poor. need a mobile phone because to read online. If I study get a job, I will be able to take care of the people in my house. help me, i live in Bangladesh.

    32. Beef Ingot

      The pricing is the ol rachet. Raise the price to way more than people want to pay, raise it even more than that, then back it back down to the level people were uncomfortable with and suddenly they feel like they got a deal.



    33. ching ho

      The ossified exchange directly spill because ticket explicitly trust plus a silent scallion. substantial, limping flock

    34. Uttam Karsh

      I love you samsung ❤️

    35. rudi ale


    36. Josh Hull

      Plastic on the back??? Ugh I prefer my current s8 guerilla glass

    37. Rameshwar Prasad

      I love you samsung ❤

    38. Brenda G.P.

      I'm kinda bumed about them taking away the expandable storage. I keep a lot of audiobooks in my micro SD card on my phone, and also keep all my photos on it. I've had issues in the past were I lost my photos from my internal memory and since I started keeping them in the micro SD card I haven't had that issue ever again.

    39. Tords Tordecilla

      whats the song of the intro?

    40. Casper T

      Yeah this is the most boring review u have made so far.

    41. Jamall Youngblood

      Does ANYONE know how to post a picture in the comments section on youtube using Galaxy S21?? No one seems to be able to do this. It's seems really dumb that a $1,300 phone can't perform this simple function when phones that are 8 years old can. Is it possible? Help

      1. Jamall Youngblood

        @Create and Innovate buddy are you an asshole? Or are you in direct competition with your own mother?

      2. Create and Innovate

        Buddy are you stupid?

    42. Reasheda Fuller

      Does anyone else have a problem connecting their S21 Ultra to their car, Samsung Watch and bluebooth headphones?🙋🏾‍♀️

    43. Danny Watts

      Yes, I would notice the lack of a microSD card slot when I try to put a microSD card in the phone.

    44. Jasmine H

      I trade note8 for s21 and it feels like a downgrade for me..

      1. Chainsaw Beast

        You should upgrade it to s21 ultra

    45. A-Terrible-Fate

      So the Galaxy s21 does not have wireless pay? Like Google pay? Samsung pay? Etc

      1. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        it does

    46. Sean Patterson

      1080p is fine for me

      1. Chainsaw Beast

        Same I really don’t mind the screen resolution I want a phone that it has a good battery life and good speakers

    47. Sean Patterson

      Lookin forward to mine tomorrow ob contract from o2

    48. Marcus Johnson

      I was going to spend $400 to get the 5G Samsung phone but after watching this video I'm going to get the 250 phone the s21

    49. Skylor Hamilton

      IPhone 12 Pro Max FTW :p

    50. Ninja JDM

      best phone reviewer out there facts

    51. Gaming Toast

      BEST PHONE EVER. Upgraded from an iPhone 6s plus to this phone. This phone is a beast. I'm able to run GameCube games easily and wii games with no problem. Since I have a Xbox controller I use that to play these games. I'm so unbelievably happy.

      1. Will Scoggin

        Good. You have switched from Apple. Prepare to have a much better experience. Lol

    52. WavyNvegasDJ

      Hidden feature: If you have the Phantom White, the phone glows with the flashlight on. It looks dope af

    53. Leancy Serene

      Im currently using ip11 pro max.. but im planning to get samsung s21.. any suggestion please..

      1. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        get the ultra if your coming from the pro max

    54. Ryan Scott

      What's that case w stylus called ? How much is ?

    55. wakil Hakimzaada

      6.2 ewww get dat sh away from me my note 20 ultra way better wish itvwas bigger

      1. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        s21 plus is bigger

    56. under forever

      You always have that quality analysis.

    57. N

      This one is aimed at 1+ from what i understand

    58. Fun Time

      This is an example by Samsung that they can make the most money efficient mobiles. Good job Samsung. keep high end flagships for the premium customers but also make budget friendly mobiles with high aspects for regular customers

    59. I suck at fortnite

      Everything he does is so clean

    60. Shred Boise

      I have the s21 ultra and so far it's the worst samsung phone I've ever owned. Battery drains in 8 hours. 8hours! Just sitting around in the morning it drops to 80%. My note 10+ would have still been at 97%. It is constantly loosing it's 5G signal and going offline. Apps like youtube, audible etc are buggy. Lots of other bugs.

    61. E Wright

      Why do "tech" reviewers fail to mention that video in landscape is cropped? Did Samsung ask you not to ? Or are you not as "tech" as you try to front?

    62. Leo

      This is the best phone I've ever owned 💯

    63. Trippy Toones

      Anonymoushackqueen on Twitter is a lifesaver. She recovered my wife’s suspended account. Someone in the comments recommended her. I can’t find who it was anymore, but thank you!

    64. Stang Mann

      great video - short to the point - Spot on/ IMO......TY

    65. Adam Grzegorz

      Okay i literally have no idea so maybe someone would answet me, where tf is call speaker placed?

      1. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        under the phone

    66. Son of God

      I don't mind plastic back at all, glass back is too fragile. at least i have only the front to worry about now, I'd love plastic on the front too because it doesn't shatter when dropped and screen guard can protect it from scratches

    67. Pradeep Gambhir

      I love you samsung ❤️

    68. Dan Dunning

      Every year I want to give Android a try, but I’m so deep into the Apple ecosystem that a lot of my gadgets would become either useless or significantly worse by switching from iPhone. 😭

    69. Ace Vicente

      Waaaaiiiittt, I didn't notice... Wasn't his channel named MKBHD? It's now Marques Brownlee??? Since wheeennn?

    70. fullsun hyuck

      Me with my 2018 6.1in display lgg7 thinq. I've never left lg cus I've had 2 different lg phones for 10 yrs now and I'm pretty comfortable with it. I've never really liked the galaxy line but honestly the s21 looks v appealing. I might switch to Samsung if they keep doing nice ones like these. And affordable ofc lol im still in college


      Dude, that intro is better than most of the DEfastsrs' whole Carrier. ❤️❤️

    72. Niloy Barai

      1:11 God,this is dope

    73. NonCopyRightVideos

      I guess the next galaxy flagship device will beat the S21 Series! 🔥

    74. Naveen Priyamal

      What should I buy??? iphone 12 or s21 plus ???

    75. Teh Douglas

      Good phone lack of sd card is stupid 4/5 stars

    76. Laughingor

      I wonder is Samsung already fix all those small bugs for new phones? Simple bug like Bluetooth files transfer/ delay notification...etc. it is really annoying that a big company cannot solve fundamental small issue.

      1. 한다름

        Well, I think the software is much better than the S7 days. one ui3 I really felt like ios.

    77. DvdK 65

      Finally, a very good review for the general user.

    78. Laurianne Edwards

      Hi Marques, thanks for the video! I'm considering purchasing this phone and straying from Apple. However, I'm worried I might miss the Apple Cloud too much (looking into Google Pixel 5 so I can have easy access to Google Drive). I know that Samsung Drive is being discontinued. What would you recommend as backup on the Samsung S21 If I do purchase it?

      1. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        there is no such thing as Samsung drive ........ Samsung phones use both Microsoft OneDrive and google drive

    79. Carlo Maderazo

      they finally removed the curved screen. it's honestly a step backwards to have.

    80. paul vicks

      1080p in 2021? S21 also has lower pixel density 424ppi than my S9 570ppi

      1. 한다름

        Who says that? The Dolby Etmos function is of course on-board. And the iPhone 12 is 420ppi, and I don't see much difference.

    81. E Wright

      Never trust a reviewer that leaves out the biggest flaw of a phone in the review.


        @E Wright yes 120hz should be the new norm for all phones, imo. Thanks for your info E Wright.

      2. E Wright

        @YEHYEHYEHYEHYEH s21 works great as long as you don't watch a lot of video on your phone , I thought about sending it back but the 888 with 120hz really makes everything smooth , all in small(er) form.


        @E Wright worse than s20/s20 fe? Tryin to make some decisions, making a quick upgrade (or downgrade) so I need to know all negative from someone who has used this device for awhile. Thanks.

      4. E Wright

        @YEHYEHYEHYEHYEH croping of video in landscape and a tighter keyboard due to a narrow screen.


        What is the biggest flaw?

    82. Shivom Takkar

      Man, How are those intros done ?

    83. RT_ Insanity

      I realy hope the note 21 doesent look like this they are makeing it harder and harder for case makers to make good protective cases I have never broken a screen before until I got my note 10+ I cracked 2 of them with a otter box case and screen protector on thank goodness for tmobile replacement plan I haven't cracked my note 20 ultra yet but I can see it comeing in the future 🤣🤣 but fr tho with that wrap around camera it's just gona be another place where the case can't grip onto as good as if there was a corner there

      1. RT_ Insanity

        @Aditya Pratap Chakraborty if samsung did that I might actually switch to Apple even tho I realy hate using there software and the terrible customization I would actually consider switching

      2. Aditya Pratap Chakraborty

        yeah I don't think there's gonna be a note 21

    84. Sika Love

      Marques:*spends 10min highly detailing points about the phone. Comments: that intro though 👁️👄👁️ Lol. Great intro btw

    85. Abbhinav Jayaraman

      9:15 calculus lmao

    86. Stoneaxe500

      The video quality on this review is insane

    87. Kekulam

      Imagine if there was still a headphone jack, that would be pretty cool

    88. izzy saki

      Top video 👍 good job 🥇

    89. Sam Santos

      *please,* make a galaxy buds pro review!

    90. hanunija

      The Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon and will give everyone the reward they deserve. Repent to God and Christ and confess and repent of your sins! Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! Forgive one another and love one another. Read the Bible and learn to live as pleases God and Christ.

    91. Dan Dragoi

      Fastest chip in a phone? I think you mean fastest chip on an Android phone.

    92. Marcus Crutchfield

      You’ve been doing these reviews for a while huh?

    93. Abhishek De

      Could you please tell if the wide angle camera is wider or at least equal to the LG phones? I absolutely love the wide angle lenses of LG phones and am not being able to upgrade only because of that.

    94. Thakar Parth

      I like 5.8 to 6.1 inches display phone


      The rude quince outstandingly glue because james peroperativly attempt a a panicky astronomy. truthful, clear marble

    96. Doom Slayer

      Who bought the plastic phone

    97. Josh R

      Could you do a video on the iphone 13 leaks? all of these youtube sources say different things, and you are like 1 outta the 2 tech youtubers that I trust so...............

    98. Ravi shankar Gajendra

      I love you samsung ❤️❤️

    99. guna seelan

      Hi Bro I'm from tamilnadu samsung f62 review pannuga

    100. dohrehmee

      I will never buy a curved screen phone again. S10 plus was a complete flop because of the stupid curved screen. Great way to introduce a screen that you accidentally constantly touch the stupid edge, a screen that cracks easier, good luck trying to put a gorilla glass screen protector on a stupid curved screen.
