We recommend you to get the iPhone 12 Pro Max as it gives the absolute best security advantages and images but if you want to use a smartphone with an E-SIM that does not have the scarcity of features we recommend you to get the S21 Ultra cause that has everything and more but only gets beaten by Apple in terms of picture quality that too by a very slight margin, however there are many upcoming smartphones which will be packed with e-SIM technology. Hope we were helpful and don’t forget to comment if you think something should be changed or included and we did not include the Google Pixel 4a as its availability to the common mass is very scarce but it also supports an E-SIM.
