      Whatever you do… Don't get the s20 ultra unless it is significantly cheaper and you're happy with some auto focus frustration. There are some significant auto focus issues with the s20 ultra that were fixed in the note 20 and s21 by adding laser assist.

      The cameras on the non-ultras are pretty great too. You're just sacrificing the 10x zoom which for me isn't a huge deal, but may be for you if you want to take long distance shots.

    are we still getting samsung galaxy buds pro with s21 ultra on samshng education store ??

    •  

      I think its just the wireless charger. The galaxy buds pro is offered in normal Samsung store.

  •  

    The website isn't letting me complete the transaction via credit card or paypal.
    Both payment methods give me the message "We are sorry but your transaction could not be completed at this time."

    I've talked to their live chat support and they're saying the website has no known issues.

  •  

    Waiting for the news offer code ($50) and already have the s21 pre order $100 voucher but used a Hotmail address. Unfortunately wasn’t previously aware of a Samsung account :-).
    Any issues using these if purchasing via a student account I.e. as those sent/linked to a different email?
    It didn’t sound like the $50 promo could be stacked with other promos but sounds like others have had success. Does this mean the ordering process via the Student site allows entry of multiple promo codes?

    •  

      Doesnt matter what email the code was sent too, should still work in checkout.

  •  

    Does anybody have a spare $50 news offer code that they'd be willing to share?

    Tried a number of email addresses but nothing yet :/

  •  

    My wife has a csu email but I ha e tries to create an account and it doesn't work. It says they send a code but never get anything

    •  

      check spam. create normal samsung account then go to education portal to get it verified.

        I ended up using my mums email she is a teacher

  •  

    Does anyone know if AU version supports mmWave. Livechat agents (2 off 3) confirms mmWave supported whereas specs comparison page indicates sub6 model based on weight.
    Also I couldn't see any detailed specs as yet.

    •  

      No, no mmWave support. In fact I don’t see any telco offered mmWave band.

      •  

        The three Samsung techs I spoke to were very confident that mmWave was supported. Shame if the phone only support sub6 …..lost opportunity for future proofing.

        •  

          Tbh, sometimes the Samsung rep was clueless and no idea what they talking about. Very inconsistent information given everytime.

        •  

          Looking at the teardown video, the international model, doesn't come with any mmWave.

    Has anyone ever done a trade in through the Samsung store. I'm just wondering if you need to send charger with the phone?

  •  

    What do you guys think about bigger size of ultra (6.8')?
    I know its relative but I am concerned size and weight will increase considerably once I upgrade from my S8.
    But I like 4 cameras of the ultra.

    •  

      Dont know what the size is for the S8 but I checked out the Ultra yesterday at JB and compared to my S9+. Only 1cm taller and I thought it'd be bigger tbh.

  •  

    Has anyone actually managed to pre-order?

    I can't seem to pre-order the S21 Ultra even on the normal Samsung store.

    Just pre ordered the S21 256gb with the $100 off accessories code, the $50 off newsletter code and the edu discount.

    $1050 for the phone, leather case, silicone case, 25w charger and triple wireless charger ain't bad at all.

    •  

      That sounds pretty reasonable! Where did you find the accesories code?

      •  

        Got the same accessories code, I got it from an email just before the live reveal. Had to pre-register before it aired

      •  

        Had to pre register before the launch event. However according to whirlpool people have had luck getting the code from live chat.

    •  

      Strange, im logged into the edu store and tried adding a few accessories, and tried the $100 code but keeps saying:
      The code you entered did not affect your order. Please note, codes may only be valid for certain items or in certain conditions.

      Nevermind, You must have $100.01 or more….. to make it work. Anything less will say not affected.

    •  

      hey mate how did you get access to the 50 dollar off newsletter code, I can't find a link online about it

    •  

      Hi @cheesecactus. For the $50 news promo code to work, did you have to sign up to news once logged into your Education Store or did you specify your edu.au email address or an alternative address?
      Also did it give you the option to apply both the news and accessories promotion codes in the Check Out screen or you did it some other way?

      • +1 vote

        I could use both codes when checking out.

        I signed up with my Gmail email (non-edu) and never got the code as with many others here. I emailed them from my Gmail account and they sent me the code via email. I don't think there's different codes for edu/normal.

        Likewise for the $100 accessories my code came through to my Gmail account before it was linked to an edu email. And it worked in the edu store.

    Wireless Charger Trio includes 25w charger in the box. Interesting….

    •  

      All of the Wireless Chargers provide a 25W charger in the box.

    •  

      Damn wish I have read this before ordering. Coz i ordered another 25w charger…..

  •  

    I have registered for the newsletter. but didn't receive the $50 voucher.

    •  

      Email them. They're pretty quick to send it through

    •  

      it takes up to 2 days…. I received mine the next day

      •  

        Yea i emailed them still waiting but it hasn't been exactly 24hrs yet. So waiting for them to respond.
        I have posted though in the classified section around exchanging a $50 voucher for my $100 accessories voucher.

  •  

    Can the deal/code be used in a Samsung store? Thanks.

  •  

    Looks like pre orders are already getting dispatched…
    My Ultra is with Startrack ….hoping to get it tomorrow.
    A week earlier than release.

    •  

      Mine got shipped too S21+, ETA tomorrow :)

      •  

        Same, S21, from Syd > Per. Apparently coming tomorrow, however not sure whats actually in the package as the samsung website still says everything is "Preparing Order". Might be the phone, might just be the charger.

        •  

          My order status shows individual item status as "shipped"…everything except S pen is getting shipped out.

          •  

            @asijna: Its not uncommon that the phone ships earlier than expected. Last year with the S20+ i got it around 3-4days before release.

  •  

    Yes both of my order dispatched already. Exciting times. Just got to sort out the screen protector now. I wonder if the tempered glass will work with it. I had issues with it for S10+ with finger print sensor not recognising.

    •  

      none of the tempered glass screen protectors work. Domeglass supposed to work, but plenty of reports on the web saying it works for 1-2months before it stops working again.

      •  

        I tried aqua gel protector that was okey. But had too much dust and bubbles.

        Then I went to a local store here and they had a machine with customised screen protector for all different phones. Some patented Japanese technology. Been using that for past 2 years. Works like a treat. I went and re done after 1 year because one side was slightly coming off. A bit more expensive $30. I hope they do it for s21 as well.

    When creating a Samsung Education Store account, I create a samsung account then was prompted to enter the edu.au address. Was advised "An email has been sent to your .edu.au email confirming your account. Please follow the links in your email to access the Samsung Education Store." - email hasn't arrived in inbox or junk box (been over an hour). Does anyone know/remember how long it takes to receive the email to complete the registration?

    •  

      Very fast, a couple minutes. I just did it yesterday

      •  

        Did you accept all the Terms - I didn't select the one to receive marketing news as wanted to apply separately for that to get the $50 credit. Wandering if that caused an issue.

        •  

          I don't think I did, but can't remember 100%. I uncheck those if i notice it.

          •  

            @maplemoose: Thx. Was created outside business hours so wander if a human must approve the account (wouldn't think so as expect the system would have a list of valid edu addresses to check).

            •  

              @CWJ: I did mine yesterday evening as well (like 6pm WA time). I just remembered that the email went to my junk email, so maybe check that if you haven't already.

              •  

                @maplemoose: Thx yep checked that last night. Appeared as Spam (for the multiple attempts) only this morning so assume the school quarantining takes some time. Link in emails expired (1 hour limit) but was able to trust the sender and then try again successfully.

  •  

    Just received my S21 today, let me know if you guys want me to test out anything or benchmark?

    •  

      Can you please run both antutu and geekbench?

    •  

      I have had a great experience with my (Exynos) S7- never heated up or showed drastic battery degradation. It would be great if you can tell us about how the S21 behaves in normal operating condition, heat and battery life-wise. Thanks in advance!

  •  

    Just ordered: $1043 for the 256 GB S21, Silicone Cover, Leather Cover, USB-C headset adapter, and the Wireless trio charger.
    Worth the wait to finally upgrade from my S7.

  •  

    I just ordered as well. Got both $50 and $100 off codes from emailing the the online store samsung account. I told them I signed up and never got the codes, responded within 24 hours.

  •  

    I just got my s21 ultra. Used it for 6 hours now. Spen is so good to use!!!! Everything is great. However, still a bit concerned about overheating issues and battery life.

    •  

      I have not heard of this overheating issue. Has this been confirmed?

    •  

      Can you do a quick benchmark on Antutu and Geekbench?

    •  

      Have been using it for almost 8 hours now. great phone exceeding my expectations!!! Exceptional!!!
      The camera is crazy and overall experience is great!

      Just my own thoughts on what appears to be the issues that are difficult to solve and they still exists on my S21 Ultra.

      1. overheating. it literally stops me from opening some apps because it is too hot. i am sitting in a very cold AC office today.
      2. Battery life is enough. not as good as online reviewer has said.
      3. CPU Geekbench is 703/2424; complete Geekbench score is 3487. I am not a gamer so it is not a concern to me.
      4. the wireless trio is almost useless unless you use it overnight.
      5. I have my Spen case on my Ultra and it stopped wireless charging because (i think) it is too hot
      •  

        Wow, the overheating is a bit of concern. I thought it has graphene cooling pad in it…? So not helpful by the looks.

        •  

          CPU bench mark becomes 1000 3000 when it is not overheating

          •  

            @ecumgo: Always good to give the device a few days to optimise before judging battery life and heat issues. Phone is optimising a lot in the background initially. I'm pretty sure that both will be non issues in a day or two.

            •  

              @bubber: Also, did the phone come with a pre installed screen protector?

        How curved is the screen on S21 Ultra? I personally prefer flat screen and looking to order S21+ but if the curve on S21 Ultra is not that much, then I may go for S21 Ultra. Apprecaiet if those who have the phone now can comment. Thanks.

    Delivery from Samsung sitting at home for me here in Perth. Probably my S21. Will have to confirm when I get home after work!

    Got my S21 Ultra yesterday and have been really amazing. I upgraded from note 10 plus which was already a great phone but the Ultra is ridiculous.

    Display is mega sharp, makes my old note 10 look outdated.

    Camera is truly amazing, with enough sunlight even the 100x photos are usable, obviously cannot compare it to a 10x photo but still useable.

    Macro photos are amazing, a lot of ppl don't know it can do this now.

    Phone feels smaller and easier to hold than my note.

    There is some heating issue but will let it settle for a few days and see if it goes away.

    Overall super happy with it and getting it early was a little surprise, get to play with it over the long weekend 😀

        Very flat actually

      •  

        It is quite flat compared to other galaxy devices. I would say just curved enough to make using the edge swipe function feel natural. Nothing compared to the note 10 plus which was too curved for my liking.

    Those still thinking about it.

    Latest benchmarks show Exynos is indeed slower than Snapdragon, by about 10%

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/The-Samsung-Exynos-2100-falls-...

    Samsung has failed us again.

    •  

      Don't know real world tests don't show much of a difference at all. Unless you're a big mobile gamer single core seems to have the slight edge on samsung. Either way massive improvement over last year.
      https://youtu.be/eaXwAIN-Lx4

      •  

        Yeah not sure. It's even below the performance of some of last year's flagship.

        https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s21-review-2218p4.ph...

        The main reason why I switched from S20+ Exynos to Note 20 Ultra Snapdragon was due to it's poor gaming performance.

        They may have fixed the CPU performance by using the same ARM architecture as Snapdragon and higher clock speed, but Mali GPU is still holding them back.

        • +1 vote

          Just to be clear, when I say massive improvement I mean in regards to their last exynos chip. I honestly didn't believe that they would beat snapdragon as they are a generation ahead. The problem with the last exynos was not only was it inferior but it throttled performance quite quickly. As long as they fixed that and the weaker battery life and also improved performance then it's a step in the right direction. But yes, definitely the snapdragon is still better.

          •  

            @bubber: It is definitely a pretty large step in the right direction.
            They probably cannot move away from Mali due to contractual reasons which is usually the case when they stick with a certain manufacturer.

            Battery Life, Raw CPU Performance both are extremely good compared to others. Just their GPU performance which brought their overall score down, which "maybe" they will fix it within the next few iterations of Exynos.
