    Any Galaxy Note 20 owners planning to get the Z Fold 3? A year ago, I couldn't imagine owning any phone other than a Note, but I'm excited about the Z Fold 3 with S Pen support (although I really wish there were a slot for it on the phone.) I'm already registered for the pre-order perks.

    I've not had a look at the specs yet of the new fold to be honest.

    I did hear the cameras weren't too good !

    Does it still have a plastic display ?

    Of course I've reserved the fold 3, I already have a fold 2. Why are you guys bailing on the note series. Samsung has not said they are discontinuing the note. I suspect it's going to be integrated in to the S series myself, but nothing is official yet. I also think the Spen is going to die if they keep going the route of not being embedded in the phone and have it as a add on.

    I think my Note 20 Ultra 5g may just be spending another year with me and maybe see what next years Note brings.

    With AMD and Exynos, next year could be interesting. The Z Fold 3 does look good but for me it's not a Note and still very bulky and probably isn't practical for me.

    I haven't been keeping up with the rumors so curious if you knew... if the outer screen usable with the pen??

    Honestly, I don't see the practicality of the pen if it's only inside...

    With the Note series even though large you can hold the phone with one hand in palm like you would a note pad and then write if needed.

    But I'm thinking with the Fold, you have to open it up and hold it by the bottom (??) as if holding a small open book (if you don't have it on a flat surface to write on) so that you can hold the pen on the other hand to write... jotting a quick note or taking a few notes, etc., while on the move. Who wants to do that??

    But if the outer glass screen is writable then we're good.

    *Edit... And then there is the thought where am I gonna put the pen while I carry the Fold in my front pocket if I were to get one and want to utilize the pen. Because for a mobile phone, I pocket carry 100%. No other way. It's like my iPads... all pen capable... but I don't have a single pen cause I don't want to deal with carrying it even in my backpack.

    The fold is cool and all however I am not interested in owning one. it's not durable enough for me. it's too delicate and I need those better cameras.

    I might have considered trading, however, the trade value on my N20U "512gb" 5g is the same as the 128gm model.
    So no, I'll be sticking with my N20U 512gb 5g.

    It's more durable then you would think. It's not any different then any other phone, you drop it you have good chance of breaking it.

    How much is an N20U worth on trade right now?? Model is barely a year old.

    If AT&T offers the $1000 credit like they did for the N20U then I might give it a thought... for a couple of seconds lol.

    Thats why im thinking hard about the fold , i want it it because it fits in the pocket and open like a little book , im not looking for it to replace my Note phone just tech im interested in, but won't be a daily driver. If the price is right ill get one and i mean by if can my hands on it around 500 to 600 then yes.

    Rumor mill says Samsung plans on offering the highest trade in on the fold 2 for the fold 3, and rumored amount is $1,000. So I doubt the note 20 ultra will be over $800 for trade.

    I forgot you rock a few phones right? The N20U is my daily. I'd love to play with it now and then but I don't think I'd like daily carrying in my pocket all the time. In your case I'd consider the Fold then swapping sims when the mood strikes.

    I have an iPhone XR I switch to when I go biking or running and want a smaller and sturdier device. But I'm not a fan of swapping sims all the time so I spend $100 a year for RedPocket service on the iPhone with min data limit but I do enjoy using both. I wish I could swap it for a 12 Pro though cause when riding along the trails of the Everglades, wish I had a better camera setup with zoom like the N20U.

    I'm really fascinated by the Z FLIP 3(or 2 we'll know Aug 11th!), If the specs are flagship, I may upgrade. Already signed up for the rereservation promo.

    guess we know know aug 11 how good the new fold will be. With the spen, the screens better be more durable or there will be scratches galore. If it is as good as they say, I may go ahead and pay off the s21ultra 5g and trade it in with another phone.

    I really don’t expect this version to be big upgrade over the Fold 2 …it will have pen support but I’m not carry around a pen not connected to the phone …two device trade in great idea and usually Samsung gives good value with their trade in program …some buds possible with purchase from what I heard …I have one upgrade in mind this year end so might pass and just go Pro 6 …all said I did reserve with Samsung just in case …and I do need to get my front screen fixed soon if I plan on trading in the Fold 2 ….

    They've stopped differentiating values of trade-ins with different storage for quite some time. They, meaning Samsung AND Apple. It's annoying for sure, but it's been like this for a while, and people who plan on trading in phones should by now realize that your trade-in value is not going to increase just because you have more storage ram.

    There never is big improvements on phones from year to year. Water resistant is a major upgrade, and hopefully dust resistance is in the deck of cards also. I think you have said you're concerned about first generation under screen camera, but I am excited about it. Then again I don't care if the camera works on the front screen, I'm not having to take selfies for Facebook, I would be more excited to get rid of the front camera to help create room for embedded Spen. Also, the rumored 120 refresh rate added to the front screen is a nice improvement.

    So adding these to the list of what you listed and others for me makes the fold 3 a larger upgrade then normal, and at a expected lower price then the previous folds. Then add the rumored $1,000 trade in on the fold 2, it's becoming a good deal, providing it's true.

    You can trade up to TWO devices for it? That sounds steep! But I guess these foldable phones are expensive! And at least you have that option!

    Actually it's speculated 20% price drop and you can trade in 2 devices. New tech is never cheap, my parents paid $600 for their first VCR, and that was a cheap price because a relative was in the business and sold cheaper.

    Here is a leaked picture of a case for the Spen on the fold 3. Wonder what they want for that.

    I personally think it will make using the front screen one handed difficult.
