Purchased this phone for both my wife and myself. Had hoped for a upgrade from our old phones, one s9 and one google. We pretty much forfitted any reception from our home. Previous phone were poor in our remote location, but the new "upgraded" Samsung phone, hardly ever sends a text and often drops calls altogether. Worst decision to "upgrade" Great camera though.

Really disappointed

2 out of 5 rating

Becc · 27 days ago

Went really well at first, but the battery life has already gone down significantly. It also glitches all the time. Bluetooth malfunctions regularly. Apps are now lagging all the time. The only redeeming feature that has held up is the camera. This might be what pushes me to switch to iPhone. I've never been so disappointed by a galaxy before and I've owned an S6, S8, and a S9. This thing is even more a mess than the S9's were. Really disappointed and wish I would've went with a different phone.

Amazing Camera

Danni · 1 month ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband purchased this about a month ago for me, at first it just looked like any other samsung phone I ever had. As I took it out of the box I realized it wasn't black, it was this gorgeous shade of purple it was beautiful. Over the next few days I was setting it up and transferring files I realized wow this has never went this smooth before and it's never been so easy, this made me even more happy, I was so pleased I wouldn't stop talking about it. But I finally took my first photo with my new phone, I was completely speechless. I have never in my life seen a picture so clear, every picture I took was beautiful and even if it was a bed picture it still gave me the chills. I was completely hooked, i can't stop talking about this phone. I know think I'm a photographer due to the amazing pictures my phone takes, I show people and they don't believe me that I took the photos with my phone. I LOVE MY GALAXY S21 FE, THANX SAMSUNG
