CES may be over, but Samsung hasn’t finished announcements this week, revealing its new lineup of Galaxy S21 flagship phones a little earlier than usual. There are still three models, with the Ultra sitting at the top thanks to its large 6.8 inch screen. But Samsung isn’t alone in making phones now approaching the 7-inch mark, even Apple evolving thanks to its iPhone 12 Pro Max. Check out the table below to see how the S21 Ultra and Pro Max stack up against another big handset we love, the OnePlus 8 Pro. And don’t forget to check out our convenient now, and check when it releases later this winter.
