    Good morning all.

    I'm very much considering getting the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Actually, I was torn between the Note 20 Ultra and the Galaxy S21. Seems like the Galaxy S21 has the better features overall.

    I currently own a Pixel 4XL, which is great and I've been happy with it. Reason for a new phone, simply because of 5G and right now, there's no new 5G Pixel XL model.

    On my Pixel 4XL, I'm currently using the e-sim and a physical SIM, which means I have two active numbers. Love this set up!

    I've done my research, but I get tons of mixed responses.

    Does the Galaxy S21 Ultra support dual SIMS? Doesnt matter if it's a mix of two physical SIMS or one eSIM and one physical SIM. Simply does it support dual sim and are they both active.

    For me, this is a huge deal since my Pixel 4XL works great with the esim/physical SIM combination.

    Thanks everyone for your responses!

    Current region/carrier: USA/T-Mobile

    As of today no in the US, there can be possiblity of future update to enable the esim. But personally recommend not to buy on promise of future update. If it's a really important feature for you then wait until esim support is rolled out or look for other options.

    Money. Your carriers don't care about locking in the 12 people using a pixel on their network, but do care about the 12 million using galaxy phones.

    That's kinda what I meant. I believe Google would bend over for them, but it would take A LOT of money and just isn't worth It.

    Whereas Samsung have a huge number of customers who they don't really care about and will sell out for $30 and a bag of Reese's pieces lol.
