I got my new s21 ultra recently, and was shocked to find the sheer amount of features that I had on my note 9 that were just straight up missing on this new flagship phone. Specifically I was looking forward to the edge lighting and maybe even camera ring light effects, but it seems the ONLY way to have any type of edge lighting is be enabling the brief notifications (which are far less useful, and ugly) and not the larger pop up notifications. The only other way I've seen it in this OS is through bixby routines, where it can be programmed to tasks, but the ring does not fit the screen, and gets cut off (thinks it's a note screen).

Anyways, anyone know if they're gonna bring it back? Goodlock gonna update it finally?

don't get me wrong, the newer battery is nice (unless you replace ur current one), the 120hz, the cameras are great. there are just some trade offs that they might fix, or might not with the next generation. the SD card slot is gone, and the biggest one for me is that the MST chip is gone, which means samsung pay will only work with terminals that accept it, and no longer just ANY terminal with a swiper. plus no charger in the box. I got mine on discount as a sign on bonus with ATT, but ill bet the next gen will be really good so I would wait if youre willing

yes, but it has very limited functionality compared to the Goodlock app, and ONLY works if you use that small ugly bubble notification that you can't quick reply to.

I have the S21, I'm pleased with it. Finally getting myself familiar with the everything. So change is sometimes hard, but for the better. Kinda mad about charger block, and SD card slot, but not a deal breaker. The earlier S models didn't have SD card slots, but I can understand the people that do want it. Maybe on the S22 make the plus with a SD card slot. And atleast their would be something different between the S22, and S22 + Cause the only thing I see different with the S21, and S21+ is the battery. But like I said I'm happy with my S21

I'm thrilled with my Ultra 512k.  I'm coming from a Moto Z4 so this is a big upgrade  for me.  I also upgraded from a Galaxy Gear S2 smartwatch to the Watch3 and that is a bigger upgrade than the phone was.  I'm totally happy with the Watch2 performance.
