Hi all I bought the z fold 3 1 days ago.
I'm a little surprised at the narrowness of the screen when folded and the awkwardness when opened fully. And on the opened fully bit, I've had my daughter set the keyboard to split. I find that a lot easier to type on than an unsplit keyboard.
When folded I find I would need to slice my fingers and thumbs into matchstick size to be able to hit the keyboard buttons lol.
I do like this phone when unfolded as images are great.

Advice in tips and cases would be welcomed

Some find swiping on the keyboard easier than trying to type. Predictive text is another option to use as well
I really didn't like the split keyboard, but then I have large hands and can easily hold the phone one handed open.
Using the S Pen on the main screen is great, such a useful feature

I don't have an s pen this phone didn't come with one I will have to buy one.. recommended s pen UK would be great.
I don't like swiping because I usually don't do it right.
I have small hands so need both to close the phone. Also to type I now can use the split screen faster than I thought I cpuld

Well if I use the S Pen, I would normally give the screen a wipe first.
It's only a plastic screen protector on the main screen, so it will inevitably get some wear.
That said, mine is nearly a year old and the screen still looks fine

Brilliant. I am afraid of any damage to the phone
I've ordered a case which will cover phone front and back.
