One thing is that the update made the battery a whole much better guys.
Also i turned off volte which made it super good, i used to get 4 maximum per full charge.
I love it.

I tried the performances without restoring anything, and lags are still there evrywhere in the system, especially when browsing a heavy web site.

But it's less frequent.

I am still miles away from the smoothness I had with the March/April update.

Why don't you try with a clean install??
I did.

I've made a side by side comparison with my wife's S21+, and it's notieably faster and smoother.
I tried the site AndroidPolice, I have lags and stutters on my S21U, it's buttery smooth on the S21+.

She's on the April update.

You can see it everywhere that's crazy. Something went really wrong this month.

I am on S21 Ultra G9880 Snapdragon and some how some times the browsing scrolling is buttery smooth without a single lag and sometimes I would get stutters and lags while browsing (on the same sites). I never knew the reason. It happened for me on all firmware. But I think the May update is little better than April update.

I never had any issue before.

I think the Browser lag is due to an updated Browser Version. Noticed that too. Try an older Samsung Internet Browser Version.
No update since April 19th, and my wife's is on the same version.

EDIT : tried beta, exactly the same.

It's smoother on Chrome.

And the heat is back. The phone gets warm while browsing a website.

PS : I have nothing installed and didn't restore for my test.

    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.

    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
