You can post what you feel about the update here .

For me

1) qr code in camera app is way faster
2) camera doesnt heat up the phone now
3) gaming also runs cooler
4) animations are better
5) expect an sot of 1h more than you got with april update.

Looking for more changes ..

Tell me in comment .

I think samsung is doing a great job ,
I was about to trade off my s21 ultra with mi 11 ultra , but this update has stopped me doing so.

I would say a 10% better everything even though it might be a placebo. All running smooth. Used the camera a lot today for pics and videos. Youtube, browsing and etc, and now 3:33 SOT and battery at 46%. I guess that may be a tad better than before. Camera seems better too somehow.

I can't wait until my phone recieve the update.
This is so promising that samsung still fixing and adding new features every month.
I think they are moving towards apple kind of ecosystem and software.

And if they can do that , i am not leaving samsung for as long as they maintain that .


They still need to work on animations , accidental touches, and 60-120 hz management in some apps

First full day with May's update. I did a clean install via Odin since it was the second update in a row of over 1GB.

Everything is running smoothly. Battery I think is maybe 5-10% better but have to give it a few days. Can't comment on the camera yet. Usage is on WiFi, 120Hz, FHD+.

I'm able to achieve 10hours Sot (48 hours cycle) on this release, prior to that the sot was in the 8/9 hours. I mostly use browser, youtube, youtube music and ocasional gaming (Wild Rift)

On Vodafone model in UK so I expect it will be a couple of weeks before I get this but it sounds like it makes what is already one of the best phones money can buy even better.

Great to see Samsung get the Exynos up to near Snapdragon levels of quality at last.

    Nice! Very much looking forward to getting the update now.

    Photo processing seems better too.

    Look at this photo I took today. It's sharp, detailed and HDR is awesome.

    Excellent edge detection in portrait.
    Animations much much smoother.
    Battery life is better.
    Good job Samsung with this update.

    Flashed it via odin, then cleaned cache partition.

    That looks great, really sharp image. Are you on Exynos? I've seen some videos where the screen animations look smoother too.
    Yeah it's really sharp. Yes S21 Ultra Exynos. The device is really smooth
