    well all public releases should be stable - no offence - they have internal testing so they can catch any issues before releasing them to public
    i guess the question is - what was the issue - since they've been so cryptic about it - and even now - you can see how scared they are to release it anywhere else

    Dude there is clearly a performance issue.
    So don't be such in a hurry.
    I have lags and stutters in every apps and my phone gets hot for nothing, so if I could downgrade to the April update I would do it.

    They totally messed up something on at least one version of the phone.

    I have the 512/16.

    I flashed the AUDA WITH Odin and I didnt encounter any major issues. Just a bit of occasional lag when browsing internet. No heating at all compared to April where phone would get warm doing simple facebook and browsing internet.

    I’m not telling some don’t benefit from the May Update, but there is clearly something wrong for a lot of people.

    I suspect the 512/16 model to be in fault, maybe a bad RAM management.

    Before they find out what's wrong, they can't release it to everyone.

    The minute after I updated I noticed lags and stutters, phone getting hot and bad battery life. I barely can do more than 4h SOT and 12 hours.

    But, if that's the case, why have they released the update for Germany and some Asian/LatinAmerican countries, including a second update (patch) ? Clearly many people own the 512 Gb/ 16 Gb RAM version too. I mean if they haven't fix the alledged bug then why release a patch then?

    Well I have one 512 and one 256, the 512 has problems so that's why I suspected it.

    The 512 is from the release date and the 256 is recent (2 weeks).

    There may be a trail here.

    I'm on the LUX CSC. No update here yet. Any suggestions on a CSC I could switch to? I want to switch to one that's got the update. I'm based out of Belgium and the phone is bought unlocked.

    It will give an indication of whether it was just a missed call (rang for 5 seconds) or a legit call (rang for 50 seconds), may help you decide what to tell your friends etc...

    sound just like the way my s21 ultra is after the APRIL update - the heating esp is very present again after April - hence why I want the May update if it fixes the heat
    i really want to be able to have a vide call with the camera ON without having my hands burned out

      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
