Led indicator :police_car_light:

Iris scanner πŸ‘€

Volume buttons on left side :mobile_phone_with_arrow:

Proximity sensor :outbox_tray:πŸ‘‹

Headphone jack :headphone: 

 

(I Iove the S21 Ultra. The battery is incredible and the cameras are fantastic. The screen resolution and refresh rate is unprecedented. The phone itself is pretty thick and can certainly include a headphone jack. Overall it's wonderful. But the price is simply unjustifiable.)

@Weezie69 @Weezie69  hey there! In regards to notifications, go into your Settings and select Notifications. Make sure every app (and corresponding notification is set to "Show as pop-up" and on "Alert". Secondly, make sure the notifications are also enabled for your Galaxy Watch settings.

The LED indicator was done away with years ago for Samsung flagships. There are apps available which mimick this feature via the camera cutout ring. 

The phone still has a proximity sensor. Have you been having problems with yours working?

The buttons were changed with the S20 line to be on the right side for convenience. The power button was also moved down for easier access.

I really miss these functions and features. My proximity sensor works fine, it detects my head during phone calls. I was referring to the wave wake up feature using the proximity sensor.

About the LED.... Stupid choice by Samsung. Just bought a new S21, after having all Galaxy phones since S5. So frustrated about no constant light notification. I leave the phone alone often and just glance to see if there are notifications. If you did away with the LED, why not use the edge or sth. else that does not just flash once, but keeps glowing until you read/clear notifications? And I loved the charging/charged indicator (red to green), which you can't tell now, if the charging is working... Ok, you can even turn that stupid camera "hole" into a notification that keeps blinking until you read/clear. Seriously, Samsung? Google the issue - thousands of people are frustrated. I really, really hope they come up with something in the following update...
