AlienKiss, 06 Jan 2022But only 3 of them are actual HIGH-END flagships, all 3 of ... moreDon't worry. Samsung is removing heaphone jack and probably SD card slot from higher A series phones as well. It's over. In two years, our only Samsung option will be A1_ series.

Y'all deserve this for killing LG. I'M BUYING SOME CHINESE PHONE AND A SONY DSLR. Hopefully none of the components are made by Samsung.

    Anonymous, 07 Jan 2022Same excuses to defend xiaomi costs cut 1) NFC is not j... more1) NFC is not just for paymemt, you can connect bluetooth using nfc, no need to leave bluetooth turned on.
    Man so you have to run NFC. Whether you run NFC or Bluetooth your battery gets consumed faster. Dont know what you try defend here.

    2) screen was bad and poor calibrated like motorola phones, bad to watch videos.
    Man every phone from a very long time ago until now have a bad screen.
    Having 4K or 8K resolution on a 6 inch screen makes no sense. You battery is drained pretty fast and on a 6 inch screen noone will spot difference from FHD+ or 1080p.
    Its a 6 inch phone not a 60 inch TV or 600 inch cinema.
    Again anything up to FHD+ is good enough. Anything better is plain waste of resources no human eye will spot any differences.

    3) USB3.1 is over 20x faster than 2.0, also you cannot use USB to Hdmi with 2.0
    Man USB to HDMI have what kind of sense???
    I have a screen mirroring app in my phone and i am able to connect my phone to TV via WIFI. This way i can watch anything i want i have in my phone but needs bigger screen.
    HDMI for hpone makes no sense. Buy laptop for HDMI conection.
    Its same useless and obsolette thing like i saw a refridgerator with android preinstalled and a facebook app on a 3 inch fridge screen.
    Its same stupidity like mounting a facebook in a car panel, or making a DVD Rewinder.

    4) ddr3 is way slower , used by midrange phones.
    Man since you cant buy time and people always in hurry dying tired very tired it doesnt matter. MMaybe its slower but not way slower. Tottal difference whn you copying few pictures is tiny and when comes to alrge files or videos waiting 10 minutes or 12 means no difference. When is not harfull for your life its OK. Problem of modern world is human kind is lack of patience and want everything right here right now. Since you cant buy time it doesnt matter. And term time is money is nonsense. Because humanity never in their existence invented anything worse than money. Useless zero value piece of paper which banks and mints prints in tons every day everywhere around the globe.
    Just look at the inflation and cost of work 100 years ago and now.
    Also a cost of a product for example milk 100 years ago and now.
    In past you were able to save much more money than you could do now and for like 20 bucks you could buy food for one month for whole family. Nowdays 20 bucks is enough for one mediocre dinner for one person.

    Poitntless to have the best cpu if the rest is on pair with midrange.
    Would be like to give SD888 to galaxy A32.
    Poco was midrange
    Wrong. Poco were and it is a flagship grade phone.
    CPU and GPU makes flagship grade phone not a add-ons which comes with a phone.
    By your term if a company make Samsung Note 20 Ultra equivalent with all add ons S-Pen, Bixby, Samsung technologies and apps packed in a phone. Lets say if it will be completely genuine like Note 20 Ultra was but with for example SD690 or SD SD720 or SD778 it will be a flagship grade phone???? No it wont.
    CPU and GPU makes flagships not everything else.

        No, I'm not interested in mid-range phones like A series.
        Looks like I'm switching back to Sony.
        Sorry Samsung, you really screwed it up since the release of the S21 lineup.
        Hello Sony! 💋💋💋

          Anonymous, 05 Jan 2022Out of the 525 Android phones which came out since January ... moreThe problem is that in ALL these phones, there is no relatively compact flagship without a big tradeoff vs. an old Samsung S10 (e.g missing wireless charging...)
          If you want a sort of updated S10 (almost same size) with just newer processor and 120hz screen, there is nothing.

            Most of them supports LDAC and AptX codecs so you shouldn't worry too much about the sound quality.

              Such a strange release, I can only think Samsung wants to kill this line(FE) or maybe this model was passed to a different team to design and they didn't understand what the FE line is all about. The first FE phone was made by listening to the fans, right? What happened now Samsung? Did you ignore the fans or was it just greed and stupidity?

                There are so many issues with USB C audio that the 3.5mm Jack simply didn't have.
                Such as overheating on the connector, audio cut-out, auto skipping in songs when calls via the headset are enabled. Etc.

The other happy 90% are streaming music/radio/video and use wireless headphones. Personally, I use a wired USB-C headset on my Samsung S21.

                        Anonymous, 05 Jan 2022Wow, this is really overpriced. Many stores sell the prope... more.... because they are now selling the S21 off before the S22 launch, which will last only so long.

                        The S22 will be more expensive than the S21 (at launch and also over time).
                        The same is true for S21 FE and S20 FE, respectively.

                        Other smartphone brands will be more expensive in 2022 than in 2021 as well, or they will keep the price and sell inferior hardware and software for that price.

                        I'm by no means a Samsung fanboy, just realized that electronics will in general be more expensive in 2022 (or lower-level at the same price). Just don't expect for anything to get cheaper.

                          Anyone who bought that phone did not complain.
                          DDFR3 ram goo enough.
                          NFC doesnt matter nnot everybody needs a phone to pay with.
                          For someone like me having card with my self is good enough for many else NFC is not important. Only certain tiny % of people needs NFC for the rest they just dont care which is like 90-95% of people.
                          USB C 2.0 (samsung and sony in 2017 were using 3.1 already) my question here is ow it matters. If i send data via cable from PC to Phone or vice versa and same ammount data will go 10 or 12 minutes does it matters??? No.
                          If i charge my phone 30 minutes or 45 dooes it matters??? No.
                          Most people charge its phone overnight and in that case even USB 1.0 will charge your phone overnuiight from a flat battery.
                          Why you ahve to complain on something which makes no sense.

                          And yes GorrilaGlass 3.
                          If you havent any or have GG Vuictus any panzer glass screen protector for 2-5 bucks does same tricks for much less moeny.
                          Why you need to waste a money on something which have no value at all.
                          And anyway even those who have GG Victus buy a screen protector anyway like people with regular screen does and have no GorrilaGlass screen at all.
                          Whether you have it or no it doesnt matter because screen protector will do a lot better job.
                          Same goes for IP resistance where a waterproof cover does more work than costly IP resistance

                            synxzan, 05 Jan 2022F1 and their sh*tty screen and cameraWell exactly like that.
                            For 750 bucks anyone can buy a 300-400 eur good enough phone and a good camera worth another 300-400 bucks and gets equal phone and a lot better camera.
