The Perfect Phone for Casual Bird Lover – Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra One Month Later

It’s been more than a month since I’ve been using Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, and I’m still constantly shocked at how good the 10x zoom is. In short it’s the best phone money can buy for almost all people. But I’m also surprised at the lack of reviews and appreciation for the zoom lens I’ve seen on youtube. So this review will focus on the zoom capability from a bird lover’s perspective. I’ve already done a full review, if you read Chinese click here check it out.

The 10x zoom, or zoom ability in general, is the most underrated feature for this phone, in my opinion. Back when you could only have two lens on a phone, I agreed that most people and I would prefer an ultra wide angle lens than a 2~3x zoom. Thus there’s a popular opinion of “Zoom lens are useless””Zoom lens are just gimmicks” among tech Youtubers. But this argument is so 2018. Nowadays all flagships have 3 or more lens, and the Zoom capability on some of them unlock you for a LOT more shot that you can never imagine.

Compared to Oneplus and many other companies’ approach of shameless wasting space and money on making the 4th lens a monochrome or shitty 2MP micro simply to pretend they have a higher end camera array, I prefer Samsung’s approach much more. A high quality 3x zoom, not only for zooming but also for that more close-to-human-eye perspective, plus a 10x zoom with killer stabilization, for wildlife, buildings, reading assist in distance, this is a casual bird lover’s dream.

It sounds less impressive thank it actually looks. This review is full of video and picture comparison, so connect to your wifi and let’s get started.

可能是至今为止最好的手机——Galaxy S21 Ultra 测评

For a zoom lens bird lover review one month later, see:


万万没想到对三星手机印象恶劣的我会写下标题这句话。这个恶劣印象大概源自于我几年前贪便宜买了国际版(也就是 Exynos 处理器,aka 较差版)S8,那台发热、卡顿、续航比当年的 iPhone 还可怜需要一日两充,为数不多的优势也就是处在时代前沿的设计(当年其他旗舰机的刘海和下巴还能跑马车,S8 已经是放到今天看也不逊色的”全面屏“了),小屏旗舰不省料的为数不多选择(当年我才刚脱离 iPhone,还对小屏有执念,而在安卓市场小屏旗舰确实是稀缺品),和我刚从 iOS 魔爪中逃出对安卓解放式体验的新鲜感。因为那台伤我太深,以至于在之后的几年里无论 rewiewer 如何吹三星,无论三星拿出多吸引的创新,我都没有再下定决心尝试。

而今年 S21 Ultra(后简称 S21u) endgame 似的杀手锏式堆料,和近年来唯一主力机用次旗舰期间体验的落差对重回旗舰的渴望,成了让我重新鼓起勇气再给三星一次机会的导火索。幸运的是,这次三星并没有让我失望。我甚至可以不怎么犹豫地说,这是我至今为止用过最好的手机。This is the most complete package money can buy. And trust me I’ve used a lot of phones。

加上神奇的三星定价,我在官网上买的一个月还没发货,而 Amazon 上已经开始 $250 off(更神奇的是 256G 和 128G 版本一个价?)长达数周之久,而且说是没货其实直接发货,最后反倒比我官网的早到货。加上 Prime card 5% cashback,和原价少了 $250 少的税,我比官网活活赚了 324 刀到手,这才发售没几周跟官网预购同时到货,同时跟 Oneplus 和 iPhone 12 pro 基本款一个价甚至更便宜拿到顶级配置,简直不买不是人。

我的办公桌配置|Desk setup 2021

作为半个电子器材测评博主,有时候会被问到零零散散的电脑、办公配件。虽然之前零散写过很多,比如鼠标测评iPad workflow2020 的消费总结里也有不少办公用品,但作为一个整体的,全套的个人信息处理、生产输出的 desk setup 似乎还没有做过。

2020 年因为 pandemic 很多地方被迫远程办公,美国互联网圈基本上更是进入了非常长期的 WFH 状态,我也在去年 3 月就火速以此为契机终于用上了书房搭起了办公桌。在此之前,上班主要在公司,也还没开始 side project 不需要在家生产,家里仅有的书桌摆在客厅放着 gaming PC 连着电视作为媒体中心,偶尔打打游戏(大部分甚至还是主机或者 PC 接手柄在电视上打,所以利用率也不高)。不得不说作为对比,在一个开放空间无论是工作还是个人项目或是看书,效率还是远不如专门办公区域来得高的,尤其是非独居的情况。虽然经过这么一年估计想配办公区的早就配上了吧……
