Has Samsung taken the trouble to clarify the eSIM situation on SM-N986B ?
I want to buy but will not do so unless it really has eSim installed and enabled. I only need it for travelling so not interested if MTV, Vodacom, etc are allowing eSim useage locally. Is there clarity on this. It is important.

Firstly,
i have a SM-N986B
It is a dual sim device.
Works fine with two sim cards... etc.
I have tested it.
I found no issues in using it.

Regarding your query about esim, etc,
if you look at some of my previous post (screenshots)
you will see it does, has esim , in its Firmware.
Further, I have also read post (in another forum)
where that person was using esim, in same model / device as me.
His Service Provider enabled it.

Further from, what i can understand from XDA forum post (Dr Ketan, a XDA developer)
If your device is dual sim etc etc, then
enabling, that esim Functions, is basically
controlled via, Service Provider CSC.

I posted a screenshot of his reply re esim, in my previous post, above.

Bottom line
The way i see /understand it its not Samsung...in this case , but the Service Providers that has the final say.!
In the end you still stuck with the Service Provider, if you like it or not...!
Good luck.

I tried to edit my above posts to add screenshot.
No luck.!
Here is the screenshot I mentioned in above of
post, Dr Ketan stating it's a CSC feature... (Service Providers control this)
Good luck SmartSelect_20201022-184911_XDA%20Labs.jpg

@Tsepz_GP
looks like our predictions (re Note series future ) in earlier post, is correct ?
Link to article
Android Headlines


Small snippets of article from Android Headlines......

"This is a rumor that has been going around for a long time, and it seems like the initial info was accurate. A well-known tipster has just reported that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will support the S Pen.
This information comes from Ice Universe, a well-known tipster. In his tweet, he said that he’s 100-percent sure that the information is accurate. Considering his track record, this is basically a confirmation"

and another Android Headlines snippet.....

" If this ends up happening, those rumors regarding the Galaxy Note demise may turn out to be true. Samsung is rumored to be planning to kill the Galaxy Note series altogether. The company is allegedly planning for the Galaxy Z Fold series to replace it."

Good luck

How are the note 20 ultra owners finding there battery life now since release. Has it improved. The exynos did take a beating for bad battery and heating issues

Hi all.

Is the Note 20 really worth the price tag? Due for upgrade from a Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but soon realised how insanely they are priced.

Had a Note 3 which I loves to bits. Was looking forward to get another Note, but eish.

On a note 20 ultra. Some apps are not opening. Shows the splash screen and then just closes. Have to clear data and cache and then it works. Anyone experienced this?

Maybe this could be the reason.?

HT Tech: Android apps crashing for some users, Google working on a fix.

Good luck.
