Samsung is rather sneaky here in Indonesia. They only released S21+ and S21 Ultra here with no regular S21 in sight plus they only come with 256 GB versions so they are very expensive here. I want the regular one to save some money. :/

With the trade in deal I got the S21+. 384.00 bucks. So would have I paid the g-whizz without the trade, probably not! But I must say that 888processer is blazing fast with the 120hz display. Plus I really don't mind the 1080p display, better battery power!

sammyfan, 31 Jan 2021true...i rather buy note 20 ultraI just bought it and I only regret not buying one earlier

Better off buyin... more12gb or 8gb ram is still more than you will ever need so no difference in usage, if pricing is not an issue the S21+ is a must buy over the S20+, its way more advantageous as you get plus 1 year more on software updates.

I got the S21+, Verizon gave me a trade in deal I couldn't refuse. 384.00 buck-a-roos. Not too shabby? Now if I had to purchase without the deal would have I purchased, absolutely NO! As much as I like Samsung they definitely cheaped out with the S20series. No charger in the box is simply ridiculous plus no micro s/d, plain stupidity? These are premium phones & should have the best of everything, especially when your paying the long $$. In doing so your going to lose customers!

Hard pass on the s21 series for me. The omissions are more than i can handle. I use a Note9 and i value Iris Scan, MST+NFC payment, SD Card. Iris Scan works in winter so i do not have to take off my gloves for fingerprint scan or remove my mask for facial recognition. MST works on so many older terminal which still exist despite claims to the contrary. I like independent backup to SD card for personal photo i do not want in the cloud. Until these come back, i might as well be using an iphone instead, so i'll stick to my Note9.

But I'll have to report you, it's a different kind of forum.

8gb ram instead off 12gb ram.
Epic fail.
Better off buying S20+5G which has 12gb ram.

For example, I do not use Netflix, but the app is still there and can’t be uninstalled, only disabled. Not to mention, some Samsung apps and Google apps that I don’t use.
Samsung and Xiaomi are the worst phones when it comes to bloatware. That’s why you need a good performance phone from them to handle all that. Mid-range and especially low-end phones from them are totally useless. And people saying otherwise, have never had a phone from them or are capable of too many compromises.

Vegetaholic, 31 Jan 2021"..giving all flagship features without breaking a ban... moreTech blogs like gsmarena continously justified the price hikes of mobile phones year after year. Do you think they blink an eye when we pay 1000 bucks for a garbage device?

Muttley, 31 Jan 2021Never buy a Samsung phone. The bloatware is just too much.... moreDon't spread lies. I dunno which model you use but the Facebook app in my S20 FE can be uninstalled. Actually I did it. Samsung maybe accused of other atrocious stuff, but stop false allegations.

AnonD-973296, 31 Jan 2021wait since when do samsung phones come with facebook pre in... moreSamsung phones come with Facebook pre installed for quite a while (I used S10e bef and currently a70)

AnonD-973296, 31 Jan 2021wait since when do samsung phones come with facebook pre in... moreNo not region dependant.
Samsung did a deal with the suckerburg.
It is impossible to remove without a root.

Never buy a Samsung phone.
The bloatware is just too much.
This phone will come with facebook pre-installed and you will not be able to remove it.
So expensive to still have your data stolen by the Sucker Burg.
I have been in touch with Samsung on how to delete facebook and basically they say you can not.
They say it is not active if disabled....Yeah ! I believe that so not much.
I used to be a fan of Samsung , but now I move to , probably Apple.
Samsung are slowly making my phone unusable due to bloatware that can not be uninstalled.
So they can sell another phone......but not to me anymore.
I can not wait for an anti trust case against the zucker and Samsung.

What an epic fail joke, no 12gb ram version.
The S205G had 12gb ram.
