oh no..... I just discovered my phone has a few tiny depression marks on my inner screen at the top, right, and bottom edges.

Not sure is it only at the screen protector layer or the actual screen layer beneath the screen protector also has the tiny depression.

So, now I have 3 tiny dots of scratch marks on the aluminum frame and several small depressions on the inner screen.

This phone is indeed prone to cosmetic marks.

Just irritated by the cosmetic marks.

At least no functional effect to the phone.

Did you buy from shop or online?

I ordered online singtel and it looks pristine. Shrink-wrapped sealed. Think like come straight from factory without any singtel bundled apps.

No doubt this update improve my phone battery life.
Using abt 30mins SOT only drop from 100%-95% when watching tiktok. (Previously already drop to 90%)
Furthermore i using 5G (not wifi) and bluetooth on all the way.
Usually i get abt 5hr SOT including 12 hours before update, now abt 6hr SOT including 13-14 hours.
I may want to start to use the protect battery function since battery life improve quite obvious.

Bring it to the service centre and check if it's covered under warranty

Anyone redeemed the platinum movie vouchers managed to figure out how to redeem on cathay website? Showing invalid voucher code for me. For background I'm referring to the Samsung pay promotion "unfold your surprise" using 300p redemption

Battery takes a hit when using 4G compared to wifi. My average SOT dropping from 7hr 40 mins to about 7hrs

Over the last 6 days since I got my phone, this is the average battery. I think it is pretty good. I'm on 4G most of the time. Standby is high as I have 4 whatsapp a/c, Telegram and Galaxy watch3 connected. Hopefully can get better once battery settles in.

could be.

it seems the trace together app is searching for bluetooth/ NFC signals all the time or something.

previously on iPhone i have to open the tracetogether app in order to scan for check in and out. but now i dont even have to unlock/wake the Fold to scan check in and out.

this is convenient but i also end up checking in to many shops that i did not even enter cause their check in scanner is place so close to the doors.

did not explore the app so maybe there could be a way to turn off the constant scanning or smth

All I did was put all the apps to deep sleep in Battery except those apps that I actively use (or those that I need to have background processing or notifications). I disabled Facebook and Chrome as I don't use these two.

My google service used about 1% which is quite typical

Same, not sure is it tractgt app drain battery or not.
Tracetogether do use battery but not much. Go download app DevCheck. Check what are the cpu cores frequency. If they are always stuck at 1800mhz then something is wrong (rouge apps). Normal should be fluctuating and high proportion of time should be at 691mhz.
