Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra hands on – Heavy Hitter

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S21 are here, and Samsung had to make some tough decisions to keep its flagship smartphones relevant in 2021. If last year demonstrated anything, it's that things can change rapidly and so, too, can buyers' priorities. If you want them to dig deep and splash out on a four-figure smartphone, you need to offer them something special - and different.

Samsung adds S Pen to Galaxy S21 Ultra – but prepare to be confused

Samsung has brought the S Pen to the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but you'd be forgiven for being confused as to just how stylus and smartphone work together. Familiar from the Galaxy Note series, the S Pen isn't being bundled with the new S21 Ultra, and nor indeed is it the same stylus we're familiar with. In fact, if you're coming from a recent Note, there may be some features you miss.

In most cases, that refers to their desire to finally shut down 3G services, a move that has been met with resistance that forced some network operators to delay their plans.

HTC Desire 21 Pro 5G is HTC’s attempt to start 2021 right

HTC's smartphone business has already been in the red and the COVID-19 pandemic last year did it no favors. It hasn't launched a premium flagship yet, at least not one under its "U" brand, but it seems to still be pushing through with its Desire line of affordable mid-range phones.
