Samsung strongly recommends using genuine accessories (case/cover/screen protector) on Galaxy devices. Third-party vendors also craft some great smartphone accessories but not all do the same. That’s why, Samsung fans are recommended to avoid 3rd-party accessories on Galaxy smartphone.
Using 3rd-party (non-genuine) accessories on your Samsung Galaxy, you are putting it in big danger such as defective call sound, noise, camera moisture, abnormal focus, low video recording sound, etc. Check how 3rd-party accessories could damage your Samsung smartphone below:
Some non-genuine cases (covers) cover the microphone and air vent grooves, so the other party may not hear your voice well or noise may occur. When applying a non-genuine case or cover, please check if the mic (microphone) of your Galaxy smartphone is blocked.
If the problem is not resolved even after taking the above measures, you need to inspect the product including the microphone, receiver, and speaker of your Galaxy. You can also use the Samsung Members app’s self-diagnosis feature to check for abnormalities or problems with the device.
In case you apply a third-party camera protective film (glass), moisture may occur around the camera, or foreign objects may become trapped. It could cover the mic at the bottom of the camera, resulting in poor sound, poor quality, and out-of-focus when shooting with the camera.
However, if you use some non-genuine cases and accessories, which utilize magnetism, it may interfere with S Pen recognition on supported models such as the Galaxy Note lineup and (S22 Ultra / S23 Ultra), and the camera may not operate properly when taking pictures.
You can still use third-party accessories on your Galaxy devices as Samsung operates the SMAPP to support the use of accessories from various partners. Partners that have been certified and verified by Samsung are given the Designed For Samsung logo on the packaging box.
