This time, the annual GLOMO Awards chose the Galaxy S21 while keeping in mind its sleek design, performance, and functionality.
The judges of this category praised its range of features – the AMOLED display and brilliant camera, among others.
Some of the cutting-edge features possessed by the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
Samsung had launched its Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G earlier in January this year. The phone will be a user’s delight if all they want is their smartphone loaded with a plethora of state-of-the-art features.
It features a unique contour-cut camera with excellent lenses that let the user record 8K videos of the highest resolution a smartphone can offer and take detailed, high-quality pictures. The Super Steady feature helps it to shoot like an action camera.
Here, the AI stabilization deducts the bumps so you can shoot on the go. The Bright Night sensor supports low-light photography. The model has Galaxy’s high-performing chipset and most robust glass, with a battery that lasts all day long. The large 6.8 inches Infinity-O Display offers ample working space for the user.
The Dynamic AMOLED 2X display of the Galaxy S21 Ultra promises 50% more contrast, 100% color volume, a blue light filter for the comfort of your eyes, and an incredibly smooth 120 Hz display. The Corning Gorilla Glass Victus claims to be the toughest Gorilla Glass made yet to protect both sides of the phone, preventing scratches on it.
The HyperFast 5G and HyperFast Wi-Fi ensure the completion of downloads and uploads in a flash. The Galaxy S21 Ultra supports dual SIM and is water-resistant. Besides superfast charging, it also has Fast Wireless Charging 2.0 and Wireless PowerShare for other devices.
Its highly efficient 40 MP selfie camera lets you take crystal clear selfie images. The rear of the smartphone sports a 12 MP Ultra Wide camera, 108 MP Wide-Angle camera, and two 10 MP telephoto cameras to provide the ultimate photographic experience.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G may have won this year’s Best Smartphone Award, but they have yet to reach the end of their constantly developing electronic devices research. It is just the right motivation for them to possibly return next year with a model that sports even better, state-of-the-art features.
