    Post Question How do I access the native Android Files app? [SOLVED!]

    There's none there. What you see is the Android File Picker. It looks like the default file manager of android because it is not skinned. But it is no way the same as the stock android file manager.

    Post Question S21 Ultra FM radio (snapdragon)

    No FM Radio for the sole reason that there is no headphone jack anymore. It is being used as an antenna for the FM chip so having an FM radio without an antenna is pretty much useless. No more no less. No need for conspiracy theories here.

    Post Question S21 ultra dual physical sims

    Not sure what model the Australian S21 are but if it ends with the letter B(G998B) then you can try switching the CSC to XTC and try again. While there's only 1 sim card originally it should still have 2 IMEI numbers because of the e-SIM so logically switching CSCs should work.

    Upon your first setup on secure folder there should be a pop up there saying "Backup is no longer supported for Secure Folder, but you can still restore from previous backups." So yeah, Backup is gone for Secure Folder now.

    Post Question Camera performance

    Lens flare is normal on any cameras. If there's a bright light being emited it reflects on the lens. The reason you're not seeing it on other mobile phones is because the AI removes it realtime. So yes, it can be removed by software.

    I think the reason why they removed it is not perfect. You know samsung... If they can't perfect it then they just remove it. The feature is a part of the floating touch technology of capacitive touch screens. But the problem is it fails most of the time when used.

    My device is not N950F... However we have a common issue here...
