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

AlienKiss, 14 Jan 2022No SD card slot & No 3.5mm jack = NO BUY!S21 Ultra isn't for poor people like you who can't afford media streaming services and wireless headphones.

    anotherphone, 14 Jan 2022Lmao it was expected and the next one will be even worse. ... moreMost headphones are wireless now and you don't need the SD card slot WHEN THE PHONE HAS 64GB+ SPACE. Most people stream all their media now. Stop whining about features the rest of society has moved on from.

      well i know a few friends who were loyal Samsung users that switched to Apple coz Samsung removed the micro SD slot. They said Samsung was copying Apple so much, they just went with Apple instead.

        It's only natural when they are letting their Chinese competitors (whom are continue to eat up their market share) use their most advanced screen and camera technology. Sad but just part of business I guess. Doesn't seem like they have the same type of faith for their Galaxy S line anymore.

            To the people that demand android phones as small as iphone mini.

            Source : Counterpoint

            Iphone 13: 51%
            13 pro max : 23%
            13 pro: 21%
            13 mini : 5%

            Do not use price as excuse. Iphone 7 and 8 were above $700 as well.

              Because people are buying iPhones like never before

                I mean they stripped the flagship phone with all the features that made the phone amazing. Headphone jack, sd card... Yet set such a high price. I know that you are paying for all these years of updates but also you are paying for their agressive marketing. They should cut that since it's not really helping. People's word on internet has more power than youtube commercial. Can't wait for the new A line to fail because of missing features. Maybe that will be their wake up call.
                Truth to be told A52s is the best phone for me but I can't look at its' uneven bezels. It's so ugly.

                  I'm really a fan of Samsung phones but they really should stop mocking people with removing charger and headphones from their phone packages. Also material selection for flagships and higher midrange products should be a lot better IMO.

                    AlienKiss, 14 Jan 2022No SD card slot & No 3.5mm jack = NO BUY!Soon even midrangers will drop them too. So you need to accept that or buy a weak phone.

                      I'm glad it underperformed, and hopefully, the A53/A73/S22 do the same, because they are again removing stuff and not bringing it back, making them a bad investment.

                      Every single time Samsung has a change of CEO, they go into doing these retarded decisions.

                        If Samsung can have a lower end processor and a few Models of the ZFlip each year (3 Models of the ZFlip from $799 to $1099), and with outer screen size from 2 inches to 4.5 inches and inner screens from 6 inches 7 inches approximately. This could help with understanding what exact size of the ZFlip Customers want, and also offering them across a wider price range.

                        The ZFlip has a few advantages over larger foldable phones and one of them is the lower price point and the other is the more suitable outer and inner display sizes to standard video aspect series, as well as much greater portability.

                        Samsung needs to have more and better notifications, and easier ways of responding to notifications on the outer screen. Maybe a 3 camera module on the back, for the top end ZFlip could also be an option.

                            If they want to get their market back they should bring the back the Note Series... Note fans are now buying Xperia

                              Sonu4678, 14 Jan 2022So 8GB ram is not good enough now. Some comments below are ... moreWell it's not like 8GB is a lot but it's not complaining either, I'd understand if they were people who emulate games or edit photos and videos and need a big buffer but most of the complainers are people who use them for Ig and ws

                                      This is what happens when you remove the charger from the box, remove the micro SD slot, use a plastic back, downgrade the resolution to 1080p while keeping the price the same
                                      Maybe they'll think twice next time
