I use s21 and I have a problem with contacts. The contacts have been saved on gmail for over 10 years and whenever I changed the phone I always synced and everything was ok, now I haven't changed the device recently but the contacts simply disappeared in the device and when I checked and on gmail I had 12 contacts and I should have over 500 and then I managed to recognize about 200 contacts from messages and calls and it went blank and after a few days it happened to me again and now I have about 53 contacts I went to gmail contacts and it recovers contacts where this and the previous phone are shown to me and when I select recover contacts it asks me for a template, when I do the template it says that the template is incorrect and the template has been the same for me since the first day on all androids
Has anyone had this problem and how can I solve it

    Is this a worthy upgrade from s20fe 5g

        After using it for 2 years, I have literally zero complaint about S21+ (Exynos version if you wonder). The efficiency of this SoC isn't debatable but still it manage to complete every task I throw at it and easily lasts around 8 hours per full charge. Hopefully it'll lasts until S25 series launches.

          Planning to purchase this for DeX. How does the battery life after the One UI 5 update?
          My laptop is just too heavy when I only need to work on a browser.

            Why lower screen resolution of only hdplus. When price is 50000 plus. Others using amoled display with higher resolution screen. Any technical problem?

              Stay away from European version with Exynos Processor. Before i had a Poco f3 with Snapdragon, huge difference. The Exynos has heating problems signal and battery drop when put to work. I wish that all Europeans stop buying their shit until they will consider European market as important like the others.

                  I hate this phone, my 1st one echoes and couldn't use without speaker, they sent me a refurbished phone after I only made 2 payments, that one died the 2nd day, I currently on the 3rd phone, only been 3 days fingers crossed. I begged for a replacement of a different kind of phone, iPhone even, I payed $1000 for this phone, they wouldn't let me. Buyers remorse!

                                      To be honest, i switched from 21 ultra to + and can't be more satisfied. Dimensions ans the flat display are main factors. Although i was a bit sceptical about a resolution downgrade, i must say I'm impressed with 1080+ panel.

                                      Very nice job, samsung!

                                        very happy with my device
