14 January 2022
The global chip shortage and the continuing COVID-19 crisis are the main culprits.

If I wouldn't have my SD card, I'd have to be downloading and uploading constantly on paid cloud service just to access my files. I don't have the time for such hassle!
The removal of the SD card slot on high-end flagship phones is totally a slap in the face from Samsung! We're either forced to accept using outdated phones like Note10+/Note 20U or go for Sony. No other brand has the SD slot available on high-end flagships.
NO SD card slot = NO BUY! (πŸ–• Samsung! ) => Hello Sony! I'm back! πŸ™‚

  • No matter

My S10 looks and works still fine and it has simetrical back so it doesnt wobble on the table. If S22 will still have the same uncompetitive camera setup - I'm kipping it as well.

If they would bring back the headphone jack, 512gb option [either by SD or internal memory + full dual sim] and flat displays they would easily beat Apple in terms of sales. I know many friends who reject the highend Samsung phones due to lack of these features but I doubt anyone would reject a Samsung phone if it had one of these features. Worst would be that people do not care of extra features...

forhad-61, 15 Jan 2022Wow! When apple started adding sd slot in their phone? And ... moreIt's not that Apple added the SD slot but rather that Samsung removed it and now there's nothing left for them to offer
I used to buy Samsung phones mainly because they supported SD cards, but now that most of them don't, there's 0 reason to continue doing so. There's nothing that Samsung can offer me to continue using their phones over an iPhone so they can continue to copy Apple while i just use the real thing instead of some ripoffs lol

  • Doesnt Matter

The last Samsung device i owned was S8+ after that i stopped buying Samsung becoz of Exynos processor. So its becoz of there choice of processor they are lossing there numbers. I do lots of gaming so i wanted powerful device which was allrounder and samsung provided that.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2022S21 Ultra isn't for poor people like you who can'... moreLmao! Did you see me saying anything about the price?
I was only stating the obvious : Samsung has DOWNGRADED the S linup, leaving only the Ultra with WQHD+ resolution, while the regular and the plus version have FHD with pathetic low DPI density.
On top of that, they removed the 3.5mm jack and the SD card slot, the charger in the box and the headphones.
I'm only interested in high-end flagships that have the SD card slot, so I can use my 1TB SanDisk Extreme Pro SD. Looks like I'm going to buy Sony Xperia Pro-I.

PS My SD card costs 510 EUR πŸ€‘. Go back to the hate cave! πŸŒˆπŸ‘½πŸ’‹

The design gap couldn't be further. I think you wrote this comment just to mock android users but you fail simply because you're not right.

I only want one unit but samsung are not supplying stores

S21 lineup build quality is meh, iPhone uses materials that reeks quality and prestige. Galaxy note 10+ 5g feels better made than S21 Ultra. Even the fold 3 I'm using now doesn't make you feel you got the best.
