crowdrun, 31 Oct 2022100% This is the reason I relented and bought a Fold 4. ... moreBefore you try Vivo X Fold+ don't say android auto is not working, been using Vivo X Fold+ in OriginOs3 android 13 now for 2 months no issue with installing playstore,android auto,etc without root. Yes i am ex samsung user from note 3-note10+, just realize chinese phone nowadays is much better. Been trauma by samsung now keep getting worst when i try updating OneUi.

This Vivo X Fold+ only had one thing that annoying, the autoapp killing is overkill for global app, so you need to choose every single global app to get notification.

      TUV Rheinland could sure come up with an assortment of certifications pretty quickly.

        This is the reason I relented and bought a Fold 4.

        I really wanted the Vivo or Xiaomi folds but the interface is restricted. Also neither device can do Android auto natively which was also a factor for me. You can get Android Auto working on the Mix Fold but you need root and it would be an issue with future updates.

            What gives the Z Fold4 the upper hand, and a highly significant one at that, is the interface. OriginOS simply cannot match the versatility, ease, and multitasking prowess of Samsung's fold-centric UI. In terms of design, Vivo seems to be going the right direction.

              look much better than galaxy fold 4 (i had it) but the problem is... in apps, there are not much apps which use inner screen normally.

                gap is not an issue.it disappears with a case.nobody uses such a delicate and expensive phone without a case.the real issue is manufacturers only guarantee hinge durability.nobody knows how many folds does the screen withstand without any black bars or dead pixels.will it survive even after 2 years of warrany expire?

                why vivo still can't upgrade to 1 year old android L?

                  Based on the picture, if looking closely the upper gap when folded is little different than the bottom. The upper still has a little gap compared the bottom that has no gap at all.
