            Smart move. People want top models. And if you're looking for something cheaper - well, S21FE isn't cheap anyways. Just go for A series.

Samsung has years worth of sales projections and this would already be in the maths for the next.

                I returned S22 due to very poor battery life. Now I have S22 Ultra. I barely can get 5h screen on time, that is less than iphone 13 mini. After just 3 months of use battery health already dropped to 90% due to phone overheating. Mind that i only charge to 85% not 100%, so other people might have even worse situation. Overall - S22 Ultra is a flop, very sad samsung is selling a lot, people should be smarter.

                  In my country, they’re even bundling free stuff like a 24 inch Samsung Computer Monitor and a Samsung Air Purifier and even giving discounts in order to entice people to buy their phones. Too bad people are still not buying them. 😂

                    The S21 FE wasn't much of a phone for fans anyways. It's just flagship in SoC while remaining stripped off of function and features that fans were finding missing on the regular models, plus most of the material and components are midrange at best. Same can be said for the S20 FE but i feel it's still the better device than the S21 FE.

                      Looking at the S21 FE, I'm not sure if I'll miss it. It's more Lite than FE, that's for sure.

                        This isn't that bad in my opinion. The S21 FE was already a downgrade from the S20 FE because it lost the microSD card slot and the Snapdragon 888 is often less efficient and more hot than the Snapdragon 865 (depending on bins, which seem to vary greatly with the Snapdragon 888).
                        Also, Exynos has been catching up a little in the past few years, it's still not as good, but not as bad as the Exynos 999 in the S20 series while Snapdragon has been stagnating (in terms of performance) or even degrading (by getting hotter every year). Apart from the SoC not much is different in the Fan Edition series compared to the main S series and I think it wouldn't really be worth it making an S22 FE even spec-wise because of the former-mentioned aspects.

                            They already have a huge oversupply of phones, Samsung will not produce as many new models as before. I wouldn't be surprised if S23 only come in normal and ultra without any plus variant.

                                Same has been done with S21 FE and then few months later they released it anyway.

                                  They just want to cancel it for this year. The whole S22 Ultra production thing is bs

                                    Samsung should release Galaxy A93 with snapdragon 8+gen1 and then the world would go crazy.

                                        I got the s21 fe and the galaxy watch 4 for €450, so I'm extremely happy with it. Who's not, buy something else for that money.
