I purchased Samsung S21 Ultra 5G premium phone for more than £1000 pounds believing this phone is good as an iPhone i.e. features, security etc.
The phone been good, but one thing I never imagined, probably most of us never imagine it would ever happen. but that unlucky day while visiting Paris metro, my Samsung S21 Ultra 5G phone was stolen. I never recovered it. It never came online to see in Find my device. apparently thieves are smarter than Samsung and they know once phone is stolen, take out the sim cards and stop it coming online thus whole find my device thing is a useless joke if someone stole your phone and they know what to do next. the most annoying thing I found is that Samsung has no feature like Apple, where Apple blocks the phone ever using it again. Samsung still dependant upon imei number to block phone usage knowingly there is no world wide directory where you can add phone to be blocked i.e. my phone network is uk based but phone stolen in Paris, France and phone can be sent to any third country to be used without any issues.
on the other hand Apple has features that totally disable the iphone to ever use again. when user tries to activate it, which only can be done on Apple servers, it met with error to thieves that this phone is stolen thus can not be activated.
Why Samsung has not built any such feature as of yet?
I never imagined I ll lost my phone ever, but it happened to me and it may happen to anyone.
apparently, I am without phone atm, thinking to buy an Apple phone for this reason.
any suggestions what should I do?
