I am disgusted with the Z Flip 3.
My daughter was having intermittent issues with a shadowy yellow and green shadow at the bottom of the screen.
It was returned to EE where the phone was bought from. Just within the first year of purchase.
Did a full factory reset just to make sure it wasn't a virus, but the issue returned.
I thought it was to do with the internals.
Anyway it was returned and within a day they came back and said there was a very small chip at the bottom area of the screen and this wasn't covered in the warranty. Thye said that thye would not continue with the repair unless I paid £305. They also said that if they found anything else there would be an extra cost. I complained but it was a waste of time. So I paid it.
They replaced the screen and the battery which I think was the real issue.
I think the Flip 3 is the worst product I have ever bought within our family.
I was surprised how heavy the phone is and the case which the phone has been in all the time which is plastic and I have my doubts about it protecting the phone.
I think Samsung should call all flip phones back.
It's must be the worst phone they have ever made.
Just to add my daughter is autistic and can't afford these costs. She now has to pay £49 a month for the next 12 months of her contract and is scared to use the phone anymore.
You should be ashamed of yourselves Samsung.
Lets face it it is a rubbish phone. The worst Samsung has ever made. Once bitten twice shy.
This is the first phone over many years that required being sent back for repair.
I did say this earlier if you bothered to read all the posts.
The worst drop was from knee height with phone closed.
I also said in my first post "They replaced the screen and the battery which I think was the real issue. "I accepted the chip, but IMHO the battery was the issue not the chip."
The shockproof case was always on the phone.
