I definitely won't upgrade...losing the ability to have an sd card slot is a no go...I store everything on my card and I'm in areas where I sometimes don't have access to 5g or wifi...so I don't wanna have to depend on a cloud service... I'll ride this phone s20 Ultra till the brakes fall off and eventually if samsung doesn't bring the sd card back I'll have to switch to a phone that does.

yeah I guess they didn't learn from the S6 or Note 5. If we wanted Apple we would go with them. They forget other Androids exist and there is only one iPhone.

micro card I'm 50 50 on. MST was taken away cause of Google pay more people use it, & cause of covid. Charger, & other stuff, Samsung just keeping pace with Apple. And the consumers are the ones who suffer.

How is buying an iPhone going to solve any of those issues for you?

Simple, why buy a clone for a premium price when you can buy the original? That is what Samsung must overcome with the current strategy. So now instead of creating a compelling product that offers additional features to attract new customers, the loyal current customer looses REQUIRED features and a clone. Not a viable marketing strategy.

Clone? Original? This is old news. In 2021, we don't shop for phones based on who did it first, but on what we think is a better overall experience. I like Android. I like Samsung. I like Tyzen smartwatches... you know? Furthermore, I wouldn't even consider switching to Apple as my main platform. iPhones and iOS are not technically bad, I have an iPhone 11 as a work phone, but I think they're boring, restricted, and ugly! With the giant notch, thick bezels and super wide, round corners. Very limited OS customization options. All Apple Watches look the same. That's what I'm looking at when I think about what tech I want to use. 

 

So even if it's true and the latest Samsung phones look too similar to Apple in features, I still know that the overall experience will be better, for me. 

 

And one more point... in the world of masks, that we know won't be going away any time soon, having a fingerprint scanner is kind of a big deal too!

YES!!! The S21 is now an INFERIOR version of the iPhone. I am seriously considering going back but am definitely returning my S21.
