Wow that's an expensive phone. I thought my ROG phone 3 was expensive but that bugger costs double.

Our inhouse benchmarking has it performing way higher than the rest, even with Exynos 2100 SoC. Exynos was never that great, until now.

Congrats to the both of you :)

Thanks peeps can say though so far it's pretty amazing, when I was transferring everything from my old phone and without a cable too I might add, it was so fast I was amazed, it also connects to my bluetooth in the car much faster than the S10 I had, and the call quality is way improved when using the Galaxy Watch.
I've not tried the camera system on it yet but the reviews claim it's pretty impressive so I have that to look forward to, but yeah so far I'm happy with it.

Damien c 06-07-21 03:44 PM

Just got myself the S21 Ultra and Watch 3.

Got to wait for the Cashback thing to go through, but should get apparently £280 back.

So far happy with both and now I have a case of Amazon with a slide for the Camera's that protects them when it's closed, I don't have to worry about scratching or cracking a camera.

Excalabur50 06-07-21 10:15 PM

I'm suspecting my phone has an issue, went to bed on about 87% battery, left it on in standby and the bloody thing was dead flat this morning :(

looz 07-07-21 12:08 AM

I wouldn't think too much of it, likely some misbehaving app. Go to settings -> search for battery -> choose battery -> touch the graph -> last 7 days -> click yesterday's bar and it'll show you worst offenders.

Ok did that and it says battery used during calls 5% google play services 4.8% KIS 4.1% and the rest less than a % so from what I can see nothing used all the battery :confused: thanks for the tip though buddy.

That does sound like a faulty battery. Seems its discharging physically rather than through battery usage.

Seems par for the course for me if it has a fault then I'm sure to receive it, I'll just keep an eye on it and if it occurs to much then I'll rma it.

Doesn't happen to be an S9 either? Mine has been doing the same for roughly 2 weeks now with the UI crashing a lot as well and getting a touch toasty

No S21 Ultra, it didn't happen with my S10 previously and interestingly whilst it uses more than the S10 it didn't misbehave last night it still showed 70% this morning.

Id return it. My S21 prototype didnt burn through the battery that much and that one is very unoptimised.

Alternatively, you could try one complete factory set and wipe everything, just to ensure its not some virus. (there is a massive amount of UK phones currently infected with flubots sending SMS to all destinations abroad without the users awareness)

Just in case I ran a full scan with Kaspersky and Malwarebytes and the phones showing clear but if it mucks up again I won't stuff around I'll send it back to Samsung.

Damien c 08-07-21 09:53 AM

I have noticed the battery does not seem great on these phones.

I charged mine to 100% yesterday and whilst I don't use it a great deal, mainly music in the car and watching YouTube whilst occupied in a certain room, the battery is currently at 66%.

I reckon it will be down to 40% by around 6pm today.

Excalabur50 08-07-21 09:07 PM

Well interestingly enough it was saying it was learning and optimizing and I went to bed on 82% and woke up this morning on 78%, it's slowly getting better not worse, so I'll keep an eye on it and see what happens.

Do you have adaptive battery on? That is supposed to make it "smart" in that it gives full power when using it heavily but once it's not being used it essentially goes into a sleep mode and stops apps that aren't being used often from running to further help battery life.

Idk if Samsung has this. Stock Android (pixels) do. Battery optimization should also be turned on, unless you want a specific app to be running all the time(optimization is per app and overrides adaptive battery)

Thanks NBD I've checked and it is set to adaptive battery turned on and the battery seems to be getting better slowly but surely

AlienALX 09-07-21 06:01 PM

It's the refresh rate. I had mine on full and my battery life tanked. I lowered it to 120 and it's better, but my phone goes through the battery fast and it's huge in MAH terms.

I've not gamed on it much. I just like fast phones with high refresh.

Dicehunter 10-07-21 05:26 PM

Got tired of all the "gaming" crap from Corsair, Roccat, Razer etc... so decided to splurge, Reserved my GMMK Pro mechanical keyboard for the next batch, I chose -

-Brass plate
-Lubed Glorious Panda switches
-Black slate GPBT keycaps
-Aviator coiled USB-C cable.

Never understood the point of those cables, looks like an old telephone cable that uses an quick-disconnect fitting from an watercooling loop lol. Absolutely horrible looking, not minimlastic nor clean at all, which is what those small keyboards are designed with in mind, in my opinion.

Well it's not really a small keyboard, It's tenkeyless, 60% would be small ^_^

Excalabur50 10-07-21 10:44 PM

Well I'm going to send my S21 Ultra back the battery tanked again over night to 3% :(

Sounds like it's broken.

I am charging mine every other day mostly unless for some reason I have used it quite abit in a day.

Damien c 13-07-21 02:08 PM

Got my new Logitech G915 Wireless keyboard today.

Oh wow is it thin but it has some weight to it.

Now just got to get use to using it, but so far very very happy with it.

The thin keycap's maybe annoying to some but I really like it, finding it easy to type on.

Also liking that it has Bluetooth and Wireless so I don't need to unplug the Wireless dongle each morning and plug it in to my work laptop, I can just press the Bluetooth button to switch to "Work Mode".

Not an "Photo Taker" so excuse the photo's.

New purchase thanks to my dad needing a upgrade and him buying my "old" stuff which was only bought last year :hehe:

AMD Ryzen 9 5950x
Gigabyte X570 Auros Elite
32Gb Corsair 3600Mhz
Corsair H150i Elite Capellix
12x Deepcool CF120 Plus fan's
Corsair RMX1000 PSU
Corsair Cable Kit (Red & Black)
Corsair 5000D Airflow

The case does not make it easy to deal with cables and next month, I will more than likely be buying the 7000D Airflow, and then start prepping for a full custom loop but the AIO will do till I get everything sorted.

Warchild 25-07-21 02:10 PM

I will have to swap some round but yes like an idiot they are all exhausting.

trawetSluaP 25-07-21 02:50 PM

I've just downsized to a 5000D too. Most of my rads don't fit though so gonna have to change the loop I had planned...

Yeah I got this because I needed a new case and it was cheap enough to fit in the budget, but the 7000D is going to be purchased as soon as I can, as the 5000D is just to small.

Damien c 25-07-21 05:54 PM

Well now have 12x Lian-Li Uni SL120 fan's on order so will see how they work out as everything I have seen about them looks really good.

I really do not recommend those Deepcool CF120 Plus fans, they are basically not moving any air, they struggle to move a single piece of A4 paper of the top of the case which has 6 fans pushing air up 3 in push and 3 in pull on the AIO.

Yo dude, you forgot the most important component in the specs - the GPU :p

Damien c 25-07-21 07:07 PM

GPU didn't change but it's a MSI RTX 2080Ti Gaming X Trio.

Wouldn't mind a 3080ti but I will be waiting for the next cards probably.

Giving my next door neighbours kid, a 7700k based system all he needs to add is a GPU and SSD and its a gaming machine.

I don't have a card spare for him.

I went with the 5000D as got a hefty discount but defo wouldn't have paid RRP as don't think it would have warranted the cost. As the 7000D seems the be exactly the same but slight larger and nearly £250 I'm gonna keep hold of the 5000D an get some slim rads.

Damn, Iíve personally never understood why people got so hooked on WoW. Let alone actually pay a monthly fee just to be able to play it. Especially considering it looks like a game from the year 2000, yet itís 2021.

You couldnt have picked a worse time. Everyone is leaving due to the frat boy law suit going on. :S

There is no new content or work being done on it. But you at least have plenty to catch up on until then.

Because friends and social families are created in there. Also it used to have fantastic content that had your playing over and over without feeling like a grind. Although I agree on the monthly fee... Why should I have to pay monthly to access an expansion that I paid for full price.

Dicehunter 02-08-21 08:02 AM

Well I only did the first intro part of BFA and have done nothing with SL, The guild I'm in is around 8 years old now and full of loons, In a good way :D , And they do lots of different content daily.

As for the legal stuff, It'll eventually blow over, The actual people who did shady stuff will be sued, Fired and new people will be hired, This time next year everyone will be outraged at something brand new or a new virus or world war 3 or some crap.
