Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G review: in pictures

Samsung's new Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G looks to improve in key areas that were questionable in the S20 while also bringing some basic S Pen functionality from the Note line. We'll be spending many more hours with this new phone over the next few weeks so stay tuned for more.
