I had been using large mobiles for a long time. The largest was the Surface Duo. Great concept "device" but definitely not a phone. Make phone calls is very clunky and unreliable and I do not see that changing. When they came out with the Duo 2 and I saw it was even bigger than Duo 1, I was convinced it was time for a change. So I went in complete reverse and started looking at a small device. I wanted something small and reliable that did two things really well, taking pictures and making phone calls. The Z Fold 3 is everything I wanted and more. Half the time I never even open the phone. I just use the small front screen to answer and place calls as well as answer short texts. I am one week in and loving this phone. I kept the duo to use over wifi but honestly, haven't even powered it on on the last 3 days. I signed up for the Android 12 beta and am awaiting it to be sent.

I moved from the Samsung Note 20 Ultra to the Fold 3 and I haven't looked back.

Good to hear that your enjoying yours :)

The Fold 3 certainly ticks my wants and needs boxes and the true power of this phone shows when multitasking and using the split screen features that allows 3 apps open at the same times.

I also came from the duo to the z fold 3. Loved the duo but the z fold is perfect for me. (Plus I bought the fold3 on Swappa and got a great price and it looks brand new)

Couldn't be happier with a phone right now. I know some may not understand this but I missed snote and Samsung software from my note days.

Glad you are liking your move to the fold.
