My screen protector is bubbling at the crease line. Samsung said they will replace it one time only under warrantee.
The technician at UBREAK FIX (Samsung warrantee provider, said that the same thing will happen over and over again. He recommended another protector that he will guarantee for life.
Anybody have this experience and if so, what was your solution.

I've not had any issues with my protector yet but what did they say was the better protector to install? Did they give you a name or do you have to pay to upgrade?

I did not get the name but will when get back to the store. It was a $50 charge for the upgrade. I am going to see if they will install the upgrade and give me the reimbursement for the standard protector that Samsung reimburses to them

My Z Flip 3 had that happen and Samsung replaced it free of charge. I submitted service request at Samsung.com.
They even called me that a delay would occur due to the special protectors part out of stock.service was amazing!
They do cover this so I'm not sure where or when you were told that it is NOT covered. Obviously if you damaged the hinge by a drop let's say....then of course it's not covered. I actually have a broken hinge 2 mnth old flip 4, not sure what to do with it. I didn't purchase damage protection!

My protector started bubbling up at the crease too. I've had this phone since August and used it every day as you would. The bubbling annoyed me but I couldn't see if it could actually be pealed off and the consequence of pealing it off. I spoke to an assistant on Samsung chat facility and they picked it up next day. It was delivered back to me a week later. The screen protector was replaced free of charge. I can see my sister's phone is also doing the same and it looks worse than mine did. Is this going to be a regular thing? Can we just use a regular screen protector or just take it off completely? I just hate the bubbling thing.

My wife has been using her Flip 4 without screen protector for a couple of months now. Seems fine. Her Flip 3 also did this so was expecting it to happen.
