Samsung Galaxy Z Flip/Fold smartphone users should keep these precautions



Samsung Fold Flip precautions

Are you using any Samsung foldable smartphone? If yes, then let us tell you that if you have a Flip or Fold smartphone, then you should know how to use it safely and properly. At the same time, you have to take some common precautions while using a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone so that the life of your smartphone is long.

Samsung’s foldable smartphone is being launched with Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a large screen terminal and is displayed with ultra-thin glass. The foldable display with its innovative design and ultra-thin glass material provides a new user experience beyond simple folding and unfolding. Through innovative OLED technology, it has been loved by countless consumers around the world.

The Korean tech giant continues to strive to improve the durability of the foldable display through continuous technological development and the application of new protective films to optimize the display panel structure and conduct various durability tests based on customer experience.

Samsung Fold Flip precautions

However, since the display structure is different from that of ordinary smartphones, it is sometimes necessary to consider the characteristics of foldable products when using them. When using any Samsung Galaxy Z Flip or Fold smartphone, remembers these precautions.

1.) Since the foldable display uses thin and flexible glass and film for its folding function, there will be slight bending depending on the viewing angle, and wrinkles may appear in the center of the folded part of the screen.

2.) If it is subjected to external force, black spots or bright spots or lines may appear on the screen, some or all will be black or bright, or cracks may appear inside the screen. Be careful not to apply external shock to the monitor.

Possible Conditions:

  • If you drop the product
  • Tap the screen with various objects like pens, nails, and keys or drop objects on the screen
  • If you turn on the screen by placing your finger on the center of the screen
  • If you press hard on the curved part of the screen or bend the screen with any third-party objects (cards, keys, sand, metal powder, etc.),

3.) The protective glass on the main screen is a genuine folding film. If you tear off the protective film at will or apply a non-genuine film, it may damage the screen.

4.) For wireless charging, first fold the product in half, and then touch the center point on the back of the product to the center point of the wireless charger. Be sure to adjust the position to ensure a good connection. Charging may not be possible or overheating may occur if placed in a position or orientation other than the illustration.
