Sorting the contact list on a Samsung Galaxy S21 by first or last name is quick and easy to do.
By default, the setting is on the first name but can be quickly changed to sorting by the last name.
This includes the Galaxy S21, Plus, and Ultra.
Sorting the contact list by the last name can be much easier in many scenarios, such as a business phone that uses last names more than first names.
A personal phone contact list will likely be easier to sort by the first name but, of course, can also be changed.
Whichever way the names are sorted, the Galaxy S21 can be personalized to the user’s preferences.
