From experience with the Fold 2, the added value of the extra-large screen is enormous. But it’s more about the little things that nobody cares about. For example, you no longer have to turn your mobile phone to make youtube big. Something always works annoying when the spin is locked. The same with displaying pictures. There now I miss my luck a lot.
with durability. Yes, I swore that not everything was so bad with the fold, that any risks from such a screen, etc. were exaggerated. Although the plastic protective layer began to appear after the first month, as with many, anything to do with it.
However, the hinge on the back, well, apparently one piece of cloth, or a small stone, was enough to invalidate the whole experience (in my opinion). The screen will no longer open completely. Although in my case there was a slight difference in scores, this really broke the experience.
Then you look at the repair options. Samsung is very simple about this. not say. Only when you send it we can provide an indication of the price and this is 100% refund. In other words, it could also mean that scratches on the front cover will also be repaired. If you then look at that the replacement of the internal screen costs 750 euros, which they will likely charge, well, you have a new price to fix your phone. probably.
So I decided to sell my phone with a clear explanation of the condition. But then you get only 300 euros for a 1600 euros phone. And if you look around the market, you’ll see enough traffic that you realize the phone didn’t unlock properly, that people are still talking about what’s new.
Now I have an S22 Ultra. A much better camera, and quite frankly, aside from those minor frustrations, it’s nice not to have to carry a brick in my pocket.
So if you’re going for a Fold 4, take it with a Samsung subscription, for example, as you’re insured for this kind of damage/repair. The costs probably wouldn’t be too bad for such a fix, but I don’t think so.
