      Samsung Fold 3 doesn't have aptX Hd integrated as it is specified in the device specs. Please corect the specifications.

      Samsung never integrated this bluetooth codec in their devices and will not integrate in their further ones as they said. Samsung is promothing their proprietary codec and not AptX or LDAC

        Got a 2nd hand fold 3. It does not accept my SIM card, saying it's invalid.

          I have had my fold 3 for a year now and it is working like new. I guess people just don't take good care or their stuff. Best device I have ever used, I'm so happy for my purchase. I will not upgrade to fold 4 waiting for fold 5.

            Purchase a samsung fold 3 5g in January, the phone lasted 8 months before the internal screen started to bleed. Samsung warranty good luck! Stay away from these phones.

                      The trade off of battery reduction for a tiny size reduction nobody will notice is stupid.

                      Quit making phones thinner and reducing battery size, camera sensor size, taking away features that are useful standards, and charging more regardless.

                      Phones used to be so much more innovative and enticing. Especially from Samsung. Now it's just marketing numbers and following Apple trends.

                        Best phone ever. A whole new experience. Once bitten can never go back to boring normal phone. Battery life is ok. I got 7hrs SOT over a uptime period of 14hrs

                          Turned on Data (front screen) & few times I used the unfolded screen.
                          Went home at 8pm with 35% left.
                          I played Mobile Legends 13% at 930pm

                          I used dark theme mode
                          On notifications settings, i only enabled some apps (fb, ig,viber and gmail) to save battery from other apps running on the background.

                          I wanted the s21 Ultra with great specs. I got tempted with the fold3 though I am happy. Just not as good as the s21's batt. And with spigen case made the fold3 thicker and heavy.

                            I really should have read the reviews before getting this phone. I am NOT happy at all and can't get back my S21 Ultra that I traded in for the Z.

                            First, the battery is horrible. I used to get 2 days from my S21. The Z gets me maybe 3 hours of usage tops. Never ending charging.

                            Second, the touch function on the big screen is bad too. The screen material or touch sensitivity doesn't work. I have to keep hitting the back button or the same key twice when typing.

                            Lastly. The pen for fold doesn't work very well either. This may be due to the screen material though.

                            What a waste of almost $2000!!!!

                              I charged my new fold 3 and got better charge times than the review. At 30 minutes it was at 43%, 60 minutes 83% ,90 minutes 100%. Not sure if improvements were made since launch or something went wrong with their test.

                                They forgot the xiaomi mi fold tho:/

                                  I sold it cos I found a big downside about the screen.. It was horrible when I try to use it outside under the sun.

                                    overall it is a great phone, Thank you for in-depth review.

                                    i cant understand how it possible the score is 4.4 while Z fold 2 got 4.5.

They had one mounted on a stand in an O2 store here in England, and although you could not fold it all the way open or shut, you could fold it almost open, and the screen is amazing. Very bright and responsive and it turns it into a productivity device. Got rid of iPad Pro 11" so going to get a Fold 3 to replace it and my Note 9. Why have two devices when you can have one?
