    Haha. Wow. I've never tried a pixel before. Guess cause Samsung sucked me in starting with the note 3. I was a big Motorola fan before the note 3. I would laugh and say who wants that size of phone and spen? Of course I played with the note 3 at my Verizon store and I said to myself I guess I'm one of those people that want it. Been on Samsung phone since lol. Sorry for the rambling lol. It is definitely nice having a different phone for different occasions. Yeah definitely check it out when the 2nd one comes out.
    I got into Note 2 which was my first and enjoyed it so much... Then Note 3 ..4 and skipped to some S series..finally Note 10 + but just traded in for the Fold ...Pixel experience is good but you will miss those extras Sammy throws in...

    Moto had some good days before they flipped back to mid range ...they seem to be good but I hear them complaints... Now with a flagship under the radar you don't hear much on it...I really like the outside of that Razr just that small battery and lower chip concerns me.. I got issues

    Z fold 2 has some minor flaws but a great device. I couldn't go back to the s20 ultra or the note 20 + it would seem like a big downgrade
    That's quite a stretch calling either Ultra a downgrade.

    The Ultras are NOT downgrades, they're just better...no...different...compromises. The screens on these devices are HUGE. The Note 20U's cameras are, arguably, the best available, the S-Pen? Has no competition. All on devices that feel good to hold, have IP68 ratings, and that you can get a durned case for. The Fold has made me appreciate my Note 20 Ultra more.

    I definitely agree with Note series not bring any kind of downgrade to any phone...IMO one of the best phones out there ....I'd be happy with it for daily driver ...

    I'm so digging the Fold though already used to its differences...

    Lovin split screen keyboard too...though I think Samsung keyboard is not as good as Gboard ..

    Left my N20 Ultra at home yesterday and today. The more I get used to it the less I feel compelled to want to use the Note. I can already see where this is going. Keep both, use the N20 Ultra when in situations where the Fold might be exposed to damage and possibly purge my other devices so my wife doesn't kill me.

    I am learning, with the Fold 2 that it may be okay to use a device naked...temporarily. Both Monday and today I brought it out to appointments in its microfiber bag and the world hasn't ended (it hasn't got scratched or blemished). I will make a decision by the 28th. It is VERY nice having a tablet-sized display at your disposal when you want it.

    Yea, no way I'd take this thing on my boat. Which means it is already not a device I can use on the weekend as most of my weekend is either spent on the boat or at the dock fishing/bbq'ing. Right now I'm finding it to be a great device for work though. Carrying it around in the microfiber pouch from my Maui Jim's and being very careful with it. But I can definitely see a benefit of having it as a work device and great for gaming and media consumption as well in my downtime.

    Ok guys and gals lol. I don't know if I should be worried about this or not but I was wondering for the the people that had the z fold 2 in hand if they saw a circle like thing anywhere on the inner screen? I can't feel it and only can see it if I have light shining on it. The screen and everything works normal. I just find that weird. I always inspect the screen and it just showed up today. Unless I just really never noticed it before which I think I would lol. I haven't dropped it, I don't press hard on screen etc. I just don't know what it is. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Here is a pic of it zoomed in on it for best view. The stuff you see next to circle is glare from light

    Should show the whole screen and point out what part of screen that circle is showing... left side of screen?.. right side?.. upper quadrant?? lower?? Then you can see if others can check on their phones. Or can check the tear down video where the circle is, if there is any component underneath that matches that circle to be causing it.

    Tiny hole/circle to the right of the reflection of the light/lamp? Can barely see it. Doesn't look like any indent in that area to be externally caused so I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe just never noticed until now and the screen a tad translucent and showing something behind the screen.

    In the ifixit teardown video can't tell anything. At the 3:30 mark they take the screen off and show the backside but basically flexible screen that looks to be glued to metal sheets for rigidity.

    Doesn't look externally caused so I woulndt worry about it if it doesn't seem to affect image quality over it.

    Yeah that's it. That is what the pic doesn't show that it does look like an indent. Sorry should have mentioned that. But when I touch it I don't feel it. It just looks that way maybe cause of how the light hits it when I move it. Like it has been pressed in that spot maybe to hard a bit. And thanks for the input. And video. I'm going to give it a few days to see of any other problems a rise. If not I won't worry about it. I got til Monday to exchange it with bestbuy.

    Edit: I literally just remembered last night before bed I was holding one handed while standing in bathroom and it almost fell out of hand and I did grab it with my left hand(same hand I was holding it in when it slipped) and I'm actually thinking that maybe my thumb applied too much pressure when I grabbed it.

    Lol yeah. I tend to hold my with left hand and use other hand for scrolling etc. Till I'm typing then I use both hands. Yeah I'll definitely keep an eye on it. Hopefully it does disappear in time. And yeah I did and still there so definitely not a smudge. Can't wait for one of my cases to get here lol. This phone feels grounded lol. It is not allowed to leave house without a case haha.

    Ahh... well I guess they say to avoid heavy pressure on the screen I guess... so maybe a slight impression on the interior layer but the exterior layer kinda bounced back not leaving an impression. I guess these screens are not S-Pen ready eh??

    I think they "tiny" things seems inevitable... like micro scratches on glass if unprotected. As long as it doesn't affect image quality, just enjoy it best you can.

    I will if bigger problems come from it but I doubt it. That thing like a scratch that will probably become something I get used to where I don't notice it anymore. I was just seeing if anyone else had it..

    Yeah. Oh definitely not spen ready lol. Maybe the 3rd, 4th or 5th fold haha. Yeah it should be fine. I love this phone and that thing will be unnoticeable to me in time. BTW thanks for your input.
