Lately when I do voice to text, if I try to insert a question mark (?) or a period (.), instead of the actual emojis being inserted into the text, the words "question mark" and "period" are inserted into the text.

Go to Settings > General Management > Samsung Keyboard settings > Voice input.  Select Google Voice Typing. This should now recognize punctuation.

If Samsung wants to compete against Apple, you really need to get your software to work ... like this basic function. Your software also resets settings when the phone updates. It had proper punctuation and then updated, and reset to the faulty Samsung keyboard settings. Why would Samsung have faulty settings in its software anyhow?

It's typical, halfway Samsung software. Perhaps not surprisingly in order to use the Google Voice input, as soon as you select it the microphone on the Samsung keyboard disappears and is replaced with a keyboard symbol which requires at least one extra step to then go to Google voice. There's really no excuse for this, considering how many years voice input has been available and around. It is just Samsung again wanting your money but not willing to refine their product. Maybe they should hire some people from Apple or Google to help them.
