I go through this thing every now and then when I just want to simplify stuff. I blame it on work. At least 12 passwords 4-5 times a day. The annoying bleeds over

I don't use any of the Samsung crap -- I basically turn it into a Google pixel the first day I get it.

Basically what I did the first day I had my Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Lineage OS 18.1 on it runs quite nicely.

Samsung's version of Chrome Browser is far better than Chrome IMHO.

So after a couple of weeks very impressed. Paired the buds live and they're great with excellent voice for calls and everything for music. The free tile is great too, easy set up. Battery life on phone is OK it does fast charging which it didn't seem to do straight off.

Got a new firmware update today improving the camera and Google February security update so all good. Enjoying it immensely. Sent the old S20 back and upgrade programme emailed me to say all is fine and they're paying off old contract. Very happy.

I'll watch for the update Battery has been ok with medium to heavy use, but nothing to crow about, so a fix would be great.

The camera in this thing Actually, just about everything about it

Zero regret purchase

Just got the regular S21 with 256GB storage. So far so good but I'm gonna miss the S8 with the Oculus Gear VR (doesn't work with the S21. Fits, but no function).

What's weird is if I load up a YouTube video and turn VR on I could actually watch in VR mode with the S21 in the headset (just can't control anything with it).

Wondering if someone has figured out how to make the Oculus VR portal work on the new S21....

If they dropped it for the 20 series, i doubt they'll change that for the 21
