Since last update in February I have loads of problems on my S21 (Exynos, Korean version):
‐ Loosing reception very often
- Notifications for Viber, Whatsap, SMS and email stopped working
- can't connect phone with PC anymore, can't do backup and then hard reset as I have plenty of important data, pics, videos in the phone.
I am waiting for March update hoping problems will be solved.
If not I have to scrap this piece of rubbish as it became useless after update.
To buy another Samsung product?
Only in bad dream. I highly regret this purchase, and in the future I will avoid Samsung at all.
From Samsung I currently have two TVs, fridge freezer, dishwasher, tablet, few phones, two watches and probably some more highly paid items.
Samsung support is rubbish.

Kanata, 01 Mar 2023I have one of these as my work phone. I think I concur wit... moreS22's battery is smaller in capacity and it lasts shorter then S21, so keep that in mind. You can check the these phones endurance ratings for yourself on this site. Just find a phone you're interested and press "compare" to compare it with another device.
Endurance rating for S22 is 85h, for S21 is 93h, for S23 is 101h and Zenfone 9 is at 108h.
If you want a "compact" phone, S23 and Asus Zenfone 9 are the best on the Android market right now and they both have a great battery life.
S21 and S22 are okay if you're not a power user and use your phone ocassionally. It's not meant for too much of daily browsing TikTok's, Instagram, shooting pics, watching Youtube, listening to Spotify, other socials or playing high demanding games. It can do everything but not for a long time. So they are perfectly fine if you're not a phone junky used to check your phone every 2 minutes or so.

Nope, check Geekbench Exynos tend to score higher in Multicore and single, not to talk in compute tests where fares more ahead.
Gaming performance is the same but Exynos will maintain it for more time becuase is a stable chipset.
Higher GPU frequency doesn't always mean better GPU performance.
" and developers usually optimize games for Snapdragon processors more often than for Exynos"
I agree in some with this part, but is developers fault, some games are very well optimized for Exynos as well and runs excellent.

The Qualcomm 888 isn't a better chipset, is worse, isn't bad but is behind, and don't use Dxomark to see scores, isn't reliable.

CHISHTI, 30 Jan 2023Which version is better? Exynos or Snapdragon? Exynos on the S21 a better chipset.

So I have went from mate 10 pro (Huawei) to this phone and my opinion is...
It has better software, screen is more instant better cameras. But what I noticed both have a 4000mAh battery but the Huawei Mate 10 Pro lasted longer in battery life. Battery still is good after it being 2 years old but overall its a good phone for the price. All they need to fix is the Battery

I have one of these as my work phone. I think I concur with the negative opinions of poor battery life. Twice now in a few weeks I started a Skype meeting with > 90% battery charge and it was dead within 90 minutes. I used my personal Samsung A8 to finish the meeting (was actually playing online poker with friends on another device) and battery charge only dropped about 15% in 1.5 hours. I was actually going to replace my A8 with the S21 but after the battery experience I'll look at something else...maybe the S22.

This phone has some uncharacteristic reliability issues for a Samsung.

Question: S21 FE has compatibility with eSIM? Reason of this question is that I have this one since December 2022, and there's no fields of it (I'm using here in Brazil). But making some searches in Google, I found a post from the belgian operator Proximus, that shows not only compatibility but also instructions of how activate it.
S21 FE is or not compatible to eSIM?
