I regret updating to 5.1 on my Note 20 ultra 5G, completely ruined my device. Had some minor issues after the 5.0 update but I was not prepared for something like that! Data reception completely broken, refused to connect on 4G/5G, for Wifi need to be in the same room with the rooter otherwise the signal drops every now and then, same with wireless reception where I used to have 3-5 bars now it's 1-2, if I'm lucky.
Battery goes faster, charging is slower. The device is over 2 years old, I understand how things work however this is unacceptable. I was hoping to keep the device until the end of the year, now I'm forced to get a new one. My phone is an important tool for my work , I need to have 100% trust , but now I have lost most of it.

I've just purchased S23 ultra as my main daily driver device.. As soon as I transfer my crypto wallets, bank apps etc to the new one, just out of curiosity I will do a factory reset on the device to see if it will improve anything. I was planning to get the S23 ultra within the year anyway (I was waiting for a possible price drop and preferred to buy after it would get a few firmware updates..),but it just happened a few months ahead. .. oh well.
Agreed, I have a note 20 as well and the 5.1 update erased my APN settings and I’m having multiple issues with connectivity with Wi-Fi as well. The settings say that the phone is connected to wifi / data but no apps are refreshing. I hope this is resolved quickly!
I am having the same issues. My camera can not save pictures I took. Will not recognize my sd card, and yes I checked my sd card to different device and it worked. Calls broken. It was working fine before the update.
