Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Camera Review

Malaysia Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Camera Review

It is now 2021, and of course, there is a new Samsung model to welcome in the new year, and I finally got my hands on this unite just yesterday.

The Galaxy S21 smartphone will be shipped out for pre-orders this 29th January (Friday), and many customers are patiently awaiting their unites.

Well, while waiting, you can now read my quick camera review of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G unit which I just received on the 27th January 2020.

Remember, this is my own personal review and not one of those technical reviews that are often hard to understand in layman terms.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G Camera Review Malaysia

With so many advancements done to the 2021 Samsung Galaxy smartphone, it is no wonder many people are talking about the Galaxy S21 series, which comes in three different variants.

For other information, please see the end of this review article as I will share what you may be wanting to know about the Galaxy S21.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G smartphone that I received.

Back to the camera review. So far, it has been less than 24 hours since I got my hands of the smartphone and I had to charge it last night to use it today.

However, when I got the phot, it had around 25% battery life, which of course I took the opportunity to test the phone when I went out yesterday evening to take away my dinner because of the MCO.

So, I visited The Starling Mall in Damansara Utama and went to Jaya Grocers to get some essentials and while there, managed to take some photos using the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

Anyway, because of so many new additions made to the phone, I need to take my time to fully explore and understand the functions and then share them here in individual articles.

The phone's most common usage will be no other than the camera as everyone uses it for photos, social media, etc.

I have to admit that the AI technology in the Samsung Galaxy S21 series is quite amazing and possibly the most superior among the other well-known brands.

It is mentioned that the AI is five times more powerful than all the past devices, which is why I need to test the individual functions slowly.

One of the features is the "Best Shot" where the camera’s A.I. makes a recommendation on your shot's framing and composition, and it takes less than a few seconds to appear on the screen.

Ok, so below are random photos taken with the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G smartphone.

Where to Buy the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G? 

You can pre-order the S21 Ultra 5G directly from Samsung Malaysia or even sign up with the various Malaysian telco companies.

Pre-ordering through Samsung Malaysia comes with additional bonuses and gifts, and some of them are quite interesting.

How Much is the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G? 

Because there are three models, Samsung has made it affordable for all walks of life, starting from RM3699 to RM5899 for the S21 Ultra 5G.

These are the general retail prices, but if you go through any local telco companies in Malaysia, each has a different offer with instalment payments.

Malaysia S21 Ultra Night Mode Photo
This may look boring, but it is actually a night mode photo taken with very low light.
The above photo was taken with probably only 40% of light, and it turned out pretty amazing; therefore, I will be doing a special review just on the night more in my next article.

The night mode AI is one of the game-changers in the Galaxy S21 series which I heard so much about and now I get to test this function. On my Galaxy S10 Plus, I have a night mode, but it is nowhere near this one.


From the first-hand testing, I find the camera system pretty amazing, especially the AI. The colours are either realistic or over-realistic in some shots, namely the low-light ones.

There is still so much to test on this smartphone, I cannot do it all in one article; therefore, I will be doing them in stages as I test the modes in a more commercial method, just like how end-users will be using the phones.

So, in the meantime, I hope you found this article helpful and if you have any comments or feedback, please do share them in the comment form below.

If you want to know about my smartphone camera reviews, I have done the Galaxy S20 Ultra camera review, the Galaxy Z Flip review, and the Galaxy Fold review in Malaysia among many other smartphones.

Till my next Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G review, be safe out there and let us hope that the Covid-19 pandemic gets better here in Malaysia and around the world.
