Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 hands-on

Samsung’s new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are the company’s most refined foldable phones yet. The Fold 3 supports the S Pen stylus on its large display, and the Flip 3 has a much more useful cover screen. Samsung says both phones are also more durable, thanks to design upgrades, and they’re now officially rated IPX8 for water resistance.

With case n spen is it comfortable on daily usage? 3.spen pro usage on fold 3? Maintenance? 4. Does spen or spen pro work on flip3? 5. With every note we had spigen rugged case which help from damage, so for fold 3? Thanks

    But can they record phone calls? My Note 20 Ultra absolutely refuses to do that. None of my standard call recording apps work, and the supposedly built in Samsung call recorder does not appear on my phone. My state of Missouri allows call recording so it shouldn't be a lockdown issue. Impossible to conduct recorded interviews with standard calling.

      @תומר שמש the whole point is the element you're dismissing: it folds to half the size. That's why I want it (mostly). Also the cameras are the same as the S21. I don't use my phone enough to worry about the battery though.

      The Z flip a weird one tho. It doesn't add anything, it's just a regular phone that folds in half, but when it's opened you're left out with a phone that has average cameras, average battery life, a 1080p diasplay, a weird aspect ratio, a less durable screen and a criss in the middle.
