BEWARE BEFORE BUYING A Z FOLD

having just read this . i'm shocked this has also happened to me.


My samsung z fold 2 is 10 months old and cost in excess of a grand ,last tuesday the screen kept going blocky and then the phone went off, so i contacted samsung and it went to tnt for repair , they informed me that the hinge was damaged now i know that phone has never been dropped and been in a tough rubber case with the factory screen protector still on they said the hinge had impact damage so my warranty was void i asked for the pictures of damage and there is 4 small marks on the back of the hinge were it says samsung across it that is were the cover cant protect as it is a hinge ,after a lot of phonetime to samsung i had to pay the 99 quid to repair the phone , so beware buying any flip or fold samsung phone if there is any marks or scratches on the hinge the warranty is void , ironically that is the part you cannot get a cover for as it is a hinge.




















screen protector still on

Another words put the blame on phone owner so don’t have to repair for free.
So phone owner has to pay for repair even tho Samsung know that the part in question isn’t protected

The most vulnerable part of the phone, not covered by Warrenty/insurance.. Samsung down to a T..

Now that looks like a phone that will last and will get put through its paces without much issues.
yep,
I had a blackview 5800 before that, but this is a lot better,
I'd rate it as good as, if not better, than a CAT one I had a few years back, and that was £400+ ( but work supplied that one )

I think these types of phone for features are great but the build quality even more so be it for work use or when at home or out and about.

I would take one of these over a Samsung, apple or any of those overpriced ones every day of the week. With what happened with my dad's Samsung one I wouldn't go near any of these ones going forward.

I've personally been using generic type phones for about 10 years now,
would never go back to buying a "name" again,
the way I see it, at 150 euro if it lasts a year its paid for.

Couldn't agree more.

Name is just name doesn't mean F all imo.

Generic ones do as good a job as them and for much much less price.

I be happy with a Nokia 3310 personally lol. Not into smartphones really.

He found a guy and paid him more than he should have and the cant not only ripped him off but put a generic screen when he said would be original samsung one and man it looked horrendous and non stop issues dad was having with it. Threatened that guy as well to get it sorted and replaced with what paid for but he ain't having none of it. Tempted to go in and smash the guy and his shop.

Sadly this guy is more of a crook than anything else. Situations like these is why its hard for me to trust anyone. A bit of honesty and respect goes along way but certain people only care about greed and ripping people off.

Genuine samsung screens can be done I know for a fact but had a crappy generic screen installed on it. Have someone local to me which my mate told me about says hes legit as they come. Double the money now for the screen in effect when never should have got to that point.
