This is the link directly to Samsungs offer @stuartfrew 

https://www.samsung.com/uk/smartphones/galaxy-z-flip3-5g/buy/ which goes onto say “ Add to your basket with purchase and register within 30 days of purchase. Purchase between 11.08.2021 – 26.08.2021. Deductibles may apply for accidental damage. 18+ only. T&Cs apply.

Hi can you let me know what the battery life is like please.
I'm interested in the flip 3 but a bit concerned about battery size on it.

Battery life is poor according to all the reviews I have watched on Youtube and thats the Snapdragon variant. Probably one of the reasons why it doesn't support DEX.

My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.

Current Devices:
  • Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

@stuartfrewThis offer is not only for people who have purchased direct from our Samsung Shop but from participating retailers for more details check out this guide on the Community

Would be great to hear about what you think of your new Z Flip3, the best features you have found and about the battery performance of a real user for @tinglish (rather than benchmarking tests which aren't really representative of a regular use 😁).

@SachikoT 

 

This offer of Samsung Care+ being free for 1 year is unprecedented and very much welcomed I'm sure by the new owners of these phone's. 👍

As for Battery Usage and Stats.

Hi @WelshPaul I hope you are well.

 I appreciate that some reviews are starting to surface on YouTube and I'm in no way refuting what these YouTube Creator's have experienced,  however we all set up our phone's up differently,  use different app's,  app preferences , use our phone's differently, and instances like poor signal can all go to sap battery power.

The phone's only just been launched so I would personally wait a while longer for real word usage feedback from owners.

This is the reason I'm not that invested into benchmarks and screen on time's etc.

I am well, thank you. 🙂

Personally I don't think battery life will ever be great on these types of phones. I'm not dissing on Samsung here, the Motorola Razr phones had abysmal battery life too. Such phones are just too small a form factor to house a decent sized battery imo. Shame really, the Samsung Z Flip 3 is a real nice looking phone with a more affordable price tag (the wife's birthday is in November). 

I'm also put off by previous issues such as this:

Hopefully Samsung have resolved such issues on the Flip Z 3. 👍

I do appreciate your not dissing on Samsung ”  😉

With the form factor of the Samsung Flip³ the 3,300 mAH Battery isn't too shabby.

Optimisation is a key factor too.
