hey guys, i have been using fold 3 for 1 week or so, and find that a lot of apps are not design to the screen ratio of external and internal screen of the fold 3. Which makes me feel like i want to go back to the normal phone form factor. Did you guys face the same thing? If yes, how do you solve it? Or is it fold 3 is not your main phone and is a side phone.
Enable samsung labs . It will resize the app for u

Maybe soon. Mine start to have peeling issue. Green. No drop take care phone well but still happens. When I first saw the users here posting about the peeling issue, mine was still perfect. But now it started... Gotta live with it... Really disappointed

Is screen protector replacement free?

They want to wipe data because they are afraid your data leaked during repair by the technician, perhaps

So...
In the end, I just went to colour over the peeled spots with permanent marker. I just can't stand the silver on black.

Good idea. But does it look shinier there?

more like access to my email and banking apps , singpass and logins.

samsung & chrome keep backup of the password for the websites . just 1 click login for most and then sms 2fa login if u 4got the password.

worst case scenerio, the technican got acess to your phone, email n sms so they can technically change ur singpass within the 1hr or less, do whatever they wan with singpass ( bank cpf hdb ) n erase any trace before handling it back to u.

anyway its very suspicious when i think back. cos he do the diagnostic infront of me but he nvr kenna phone lock.

Jokes aside, what you mentioned is valid though. Although we have biometric and pass/pin on some of the sensitive apps, but apps like samsung/chrome are open and contains our passwords. That's does raise a flag if we are required to give them our password to unlock the phone.

Guess next time safer to do a backup using Samsung Switch and factory reset before heading down to the customer service center.

yeah, mine is getting quite bad and from far it looks like a cheapo phone because of the peel. almost the entire power button area is silver.
