Placed an order for the S22 Ultra. Traded in my old S20+. Keeping my S21 Ultra for the moment.

$566 ($366 + $200 additional promo) off for the S20+.

Would have gotten $1055 trade-in value for the S21 Ultra. So reluctant to give it up...been using it for only 8 months!

actually if not 3D game player, s21U still as good as s22U: similar battery life even after almost 1 year(because s22U only 80-90% battery performance compare to S21U), screen/camera all similar.

Likely to gift the S22 Ultra to my better half. She was concerned that her S21 Ultra's storage space was running low. She's on the 256 GB model & was always using the flagship Galaxy Note phones before (enjoys the stylus).

Just got a new s21u but can't get main camera (1x to 2.9x) to focus unless i lightly hit the phone. Anyone with such issues?
I just repaired my phone at the Samsung service centre.now it is working fine.

Faster and smoother UI/operations! :whistle:

The camera app....quite noticeable! :whistle:

Also, you can now choose 2 or 4 or 6 or 8GB of RAMPlus! :whistle:
Feels like the same to me though. Not much diff between v4 n v4.1

Do you know which firmware I can download that has stock firmware? I don't want the pre-installed carrier apps (I'm on circles but it has M1 customisations). Or will just SG firmware on sammobile do?

Doing that will wipe your phone. You sure?

Yes, I have this habit of wanting to keep my things as 'stock' as possible. :) I'd appreciate it if you can point me to a firmware that is 'stock' (at least no carrier customizations), if there is any. Thanks!

No need I think. Just change your CSC to XSP will do. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

anyone know whether the new ONE UI 4.1 solves the dual sim card issue in the S21?
Thank you.

Anyone notice that after the recent update, 3rd party apps don't show up on the 'recent apps' page anymore? Damn annoying.....

Flashed DBT CVD2... encountered network dropping. cleared cache and it's back to normal.

Otherwise this build is quite stable.

i think not much of a point there? cause need to pay GST as well since it's over S$400. if phone DOA, the return process will be a hassle too. Also korea is single sim only? at that price might as well hunt for used local set for better compatibility (samsung pay)?
