Be nice to know what the accessory cost is as well. Covers and s-pen (fold edition) in particular. And will my current Samsung watch charger work on the GW4.

 

I wouldn’t want to go down the Apple route where I have to replace all my accessories.

Hmmmm, looks OK, for me I prefer Noel Leeming's free Galaxy 4 watch.

 

 

 

Update: Actually, Harvey Norman seems to have a good deal - buy outsight the Fold 3 512GB version and receive a free Galaxy 4 watch plus $300 Harvey Norman gift card.

@NikT might want to look at the email they just sent out. It quotes the ZF3 as having 128GB and 256GB models at the price points that other retailers have 256 and 512.

 

Note. It is correct when you click through to the web link.

Same offer on the 256GB model at HN as well.

Dual SIM plus eSIM.

 



 

So does that mean it has a dual SIM tray? Which was a microSD/SIM tray in older models? I had assumed the memory in the ZF3 wasn’t expandable.

Just been to have a look at the ZF3 at my local HN (they had literally just put it on display). The underscreen selfie camera is kind of obvious, particularly with a white screen it just looks a little threadbare in that portion but the cutout for the camera never really bothered me anyway.

 

It definitely feels lighter and easier to hold than the ZF2.

 

The bundle deal for a Galaxy Watch 4 is obviously something from Samsung because I asked about the ability to upgrade to the GW4 Classic and pay the difference. It was not possible. Having got used to my Gear S3 Frontier I don’t actually like the GW4, it looks too much like a fitness tracker rather than a watch like the classic does.

Which store was this?

 

I just preordered the Flip3 through them too. Will likely use the voucher to get the Watch4 Classic.

I purchased through samsung.

512gb fold 3
Fold case + S Pen
Watch 4 40mm
Galaxy buds 2

$3098


The harvey norman deal looks better, with its $300 gift card. But i wasnt sure if i could use that to purchase the buds 2. So i just did it through samsung. And got the extra case and pen.

I am receiving a Flip3 this weekend so will be able to answer questions for that model (the Fold3 is coming later).

Was hyped for the Fold 3 but the under camera module doesn't look too impressive from YouTube "first looks" and the outer camera set up are similar to Fold 2. I must not be the right consumer for it... although love the folding concept!!!

I rarely use the front facing camera and hated the sacrifices of the screen real estate needed to keep it. But i appreciated the hole punch and placement and got used to it. And if you can handle a hole punch, you will welcome a under display system that at least displays some information that can more be more forgiving than a hole punch.

The under display camera is the least of my concerns, its the battery.

Mostly interested in battery life, given the A Series phones have gone down the stonkingly-huge battery path and this seems kind of small, given the screen?

I am extremely curious on how it handles a power user. The 888 is NOT an easy chip to cool so I wonder if it will get very toasty in a normal day to day. Very surprised they put an 888 in the flip 3.
