Which All Samsung Devices Supports WiFi Calling?
Samsung Galaxy S20 Series (Galaxy S20u, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20)
Everything is good in the phone only one huge disadvantage which overlaps all other good things. The network reception is extremely poor which is basically the primary necessity in a phone. My poco x2 and realme x2 pro gets excellent reception in rural places where network infrastructure is poor but Samsung s10 lite goes completely out of network at the same places. The sad thing is its a hardware problem and Samsung cant rectify it with any updates. 42000 wasted for me and i am extremely disappointed with Samsung.
