I have no idea what he's talking about, cause that doesn't look smooth at all. Looks terrible
Well thank you I'm not crazy ;-)

2 factory reset and last one was a clean install with Odin.

That's the exact same thing with any browser, I noticed it immediately after tnstalling the May Update. IMHO they messed up something with the refresh rate because there is lag and stutter in almost every app. now.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
Does anyone know if the phone goes lower than 48hz refresh rate with this may update?like Samsung said it will go to 10hz depending on app,screen off etc
Search on ananadtech (don't have the link handy) for an article on variable refresh rate. It's a written at the time note 20 ultra came out, but applies to s21 ultra as well. It's a LOT more complicated than just setting a low limit.

was hoping it will be today in UK but it doesnt seems like it - that means it will be nearly half of may they release it - if they ever - making a huge down trend considering past months

    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.
    Patiently waiting here in UK too...
    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
