    Doorbell rang at 8AM this morning and it was FedEx with the S21U. Delivered only a few hours after the release date, that has got to be the smoothest launch of a physical product I have experienced in recent memory

    Nice, congrats! My S20+ needs to last until November. I will have to manage.

    I think my brown one won't be here for a couple of weeks.

    Yeah if you got a special color it's a 4-5 week delay as they are apparently made-to-order. That was too long for me since it is just going to live in a case the entire time and with how short refresh cycles are on smartphones. I really liked the Navy one though if the delivery time was the same I would have got that one.

    Received my s21 ultra yesterday. It's an improvement on my Note10+. Only thing I am upset about is the removal of the SD card slot.

    maybe they thought that me buying a brown phone was cultural appropriation?

    Wow that is very strange. Curious to hear what their reason ends up being.

    Dear xxx your order has been reviewed and cannot be processed at this time. Please contact customer support.
    The following product(s) have been cancelled:"

    Dunno.

    I sure wish google had stepped up with a flagship phone this generation. I have a low tolerance for time wasting shit like this.

    It only took me a few minutes to make the phone pretty much like a Pixel if anyone is thinking of doing the same.

    Samsung Smart Switch brought everything over (install on both phones). Some people have problems getting text messages to come over, if that happens just use SMS Backup & Restore, that works and is very quick. Also if you use WhatsApp, make sure to do a backup of your messages to Google Drive or whatever for a 1-click restore on the new phone.

    - You don't actually need to have or add a Samsung account, but you do if you want entire phone cloud backups
    - Default far left screen is already Google Now
    - Default messaging app was already Google Messages
    - Default assistant was already Google
    - Change browser default to Chrome
    - Download Google Phone and change default
    - Download Google Calendar, Keep, etc. or anything else you use
    - Download Gboard and change default
    - Download Google Clock and add widget (alarms come with it)
    - Uninstall/disable/remove the Samsung apps you may never use
    - Change navigation buttons to gesture control if you prefer

    I think that's about all I had to do. Now it's basically like a Pixel with better hardware and more options/customization. Some of the Samsung apps are actually really good, I'm just used to the Google variants.

    The only two things I miss are:

    1) The instant face unlock to home screen even from weird angles - nobody does this better than Google and it would be nice to have that option in addition to the fingerprint scanner. That being said, the fingerprint scanner is instant and having it built into the screen is clearly the way to go.
    2) Soli for changing songs at the gym, silencing alarms and screen wake as I reach for the phone, and touchless checking of notifications. I used it dozens of times a day and it will take me a little bit to get used to not having it.

    Also, the pre-installed screen protector is actually quite good and I have no desire to change it at least for the time being. The little dip the curved screen makes against a case also makes gesture navigation super smooth.

    There was a software update released Jan 23 so make sure you grab that too.

    That's odd. I wonder if it had to do with the special color? They use overnight FedEx shipping and their warehouse is in Ontario, so if you did choose to order again you shouldn't have to wait too long.

    I don't know for sure to be honest - I just use a regular sim. Searching the menu for eSIM doesn't seem to bring up anything obvious that would suggest it has it but it's possible I'm not looking in the right place.

    I remember reading on RFD that it is disabled. But just hearsay.

    Maybe the other-other trade trick?

    I did that too though (I have a phone to send them if they ever ask) but I never received an email or any sort of documentation asking me to send them anything at any time throughout the process. You might have to ask customer service to find out for sure what went wrong.

    Took a pic of the moon tonight with the S21 Ultra - this is less than 1/3 of it's 'zoom', pretty impressive for a smartphone IMO:

    Sweet. They seem to ship very fast even from people who ordered "late" (i.e after preorder). Hopefully you get it soon.
