    So I'm a long time iPhone user and I've been getting a little bored lately. Heard a out the fold when it first came out and the problems. Thought I'd never get that. Well after watching reviews and some research, I added a line to my Verizon account and here I am. It's not my daily device...... yet. I work in real estate so the screen size when opened alleviates having to carry around a laptop. Gonna use as a secondary line for a little while but possible it could become my primary device.

    Loving mine so far.

    I am trying to decide if I can sell the tab S7+ and just use this for my tablets needs. Sitting on couch reading forms, Twitter and Tik Tok

    Battery life is not great coming from a Note 20 Ultra and using my tablet at night but it is early and 2 days of seeing up and such.

    No major complaints and liking it so far but also in the honeymoon phase so I'll give the emotions of the new shiny toy to settle down first

    I'll see how I feel about this in a few weeks after using it more regularly every day.

    Yeah I'm in the same boat. So far no issues. Used it on a job today, noticed a little lag last night after setup.

    Really is an amazing bit of kit. I'm coming the fold 2, and even though the changes are small, they add up to a lot! The water resistance, and un interrupted screen are fantastic

    So glad you are loving it! What are you using as your main device? Let us know your other experiences with the Fold 3 too - how's the camera, battery life, and speed/performance?

    My main device has been an iPhone 12 pro max. Still use it for personal. Used the fold for work today and it's been good. Camera is OK. Have a wireless charger in my car so can't say much about battery life.

    will have to return it if this battery doesn't get improved somehow in the next week. It is like 4 hours. And if i have to charge it 3 times a day, it will only get worse over time.

    I have noticed the battery drains a little faster than I'd like. I'm hoping that it's still getting optimized.

    Also i used the "acubattery" app(idk how trustworthy it is) but it says i already lost 7% of its OVERALL battery health.
    my note ultra 20, i had for ONE YEAR, lost only 4% it said. i'm very worried.

    So I've been using the service since Friday and been using it as a primary. I love the screen when unfolded, not to crazy about the picture quality, not impressed with the battery life. I just think with a phone of this price point, battery should be better. Right now I'm on the fence about keeping it. Also tried Samsung pay 3 times and kept getting errors. I use apple pay a lot so this was frustrating.

    Try Google pay to see if it works better. Yeah expensive tag is more due to the foldable tech and not having much competition in the space. They are iterating fast every year and getting better, I think in a gen or two they probably will be on par in terms of feature and quality in all areas compared to the regular slab flagship smartphone.

    I had an issue with authenticating USAA cards and Samsung pay in this device, none of my other had this issue.

    Google pay went quick, never really used it much before so we will see. But no MST and rewards on Samsung pay are pretty much gone, so I might as well switch over now.

    I never used Google pay but may consider. I reached out to Samsung but they weren't much help. Lol

    It's only been a few hours for me and I'm loving the device. I moved from the note 10plus star wars edition so not parting ways with that.

    I get attached to my devices but this brings a smile to my face. I think Samsung did a great job!!

    I haven't tried an a-pen on it yet but seems like it should.

    I've used it and haven't noticed any impact on the screen. I would imagine if you constantly press too hard you might have some issues

    Yeah Google Pay is faster and you just half to unlock your phone for it to work on any screen.

    I decided to return the device. Loved the screen unfolded, the camera was decent. The deal killer for me was call quality. I had a hard time hearing people and I’m wondering if it was the placement of the earpiece. Maybe I’ll give it another chance when the price comes down.
