You are not alone bro , it all happened after android 11 , I'm crying for this from last month. I have s20 and I thought one3.1 update will fix this. But your post made me clear it's not going happen.
I was able to get my notifications to work by reinstalling some apps. Still very unhappy with the layout. Since I posted this I also discovered that folders on the homescreen behave the same way. They are grids only 3x4 now and have wasted space above. Seems like this was a design decision across the os/launcher.
Same issue here. When receiving messages on applications via secure folder, the details of the message are visible from the normal screen before you unlock the secure folder. It is supposed to only notify you of an incoming message with the contents of the message hidden until you unlock your secure folder. Major security flaw being it is a secure folder.
I noticed the verbiage even changed and secure folder is very buggy. See attached image
I'm very annoyed, I don't like the new Android 11 volume bars, with the S20 Ultra, I could go to sound assistant and choose classic mode, but that has disappeared in S21 Ultra
you'll get used to the new sound bar pretty quick. plus it's a lot easier to reach than the old one all the way at the top.
This is pathetic Samsung. How can you mock apple then turn around a copy them? How do you expect to sell a flagship that is literally getting worse?
Not one person with a brain would choose to pay for cloud storage instead of using an SD card which doesn't rely on any connection to access your files and is more secure. At a minimum you should be making the base model 512gb internal storage if this is the route you plan on taking as your claim for a $50 upgrade to a 256gb model being a good deal is a complete lie and an insult to your customers.
On top of that how can you go back to 1080p screens unless you get the ultra? This isn't 2013 lmao, I hope you don't sell many of these scam phones. Also it has worse battery life...
Android users are not sheep like apple slaves. If you keep producing such sad excuses for a flagship phone you will be left in the past. I was looking forward to the s21 ultra but looks like I'll have to find another company now...
not to mention the fingerprint scanner still gives me trouble. fails and keeps telling me to cover the whole sensor area even when I have my thumb fully on the area...
I want to let Samsung know that I bought an S20 because of the S21.
