I don't know if it is the right Page to ask but which version of Fold 3 have Native Call Recording. I just purchased the HK Version. Is it possible to change CSC to India Version. Usually I know Indian Version have call recording in most phone.

Little Help would be appreciated
Yes, India does work, and if I remember correctly, so does Thailand.

By the way, have you tried any call recording apps? ACR Pro works for me fine, both sides recorded.

You might want to give it a whirl before you go hunting corners of the dark Web for combination files and the suchlike.

There's some strange things going on with my device.

1. I can't get into download mode. I get into recovery np, but then when I hit the option to boot into download, it just boots normally.

2. Sensitivity of S pen varies from key to key on keyboard. Some keys have to be struck firmer, not always same keys, random.

3. In 'Developer options' USB debugging won't stay on. As soon as I try to OK it, it reverts back to the off position.

4. ADB not working. The show devices command ( .\adb devices) returns the expected response, anything else then returns daemon/devices not present.

5. Wallpaper on front screen won't stay. After restart, reverts to stock wallpaper, inside screen OK.

Time to have a chat with Sammy tech support methinks, just hoping they won't part me from my new toy for long!!!!

Number one, when phone is totally off, press and hold both volume up and volume down keys, then insert USB lead that's plugged into computer/laptop. This will take you into download mode

The rest I have no idea why it ain't working. You on the latest software?

I was excited to get the Fold 3 - I figured that the bugs Samsung had on previous models would be worked out by now and when I got the phone was very happy to see that it appeared I was correct - until today that is. When I turned the phone on today, I noticed that there were two very small, bright colored 'dots' in the screen - these must be faulty pixels or something, I am really not sure. They show up on every screen regardless of what you are looking at - but they seem more prominent on dark backgrounds or screens.

In all honesty, I am a little disapointed - I really liked this phone, how it worked, the size of the screen, transitions from the main folded closed home screen to the fully opened screen.

I didn't know if others had seen similar issues but from my perspective, the cost of this phone is too high to put up with any defect it might have regardless of how small it might be.

I believe expecting perfection from man-made equipment to be a journey with lots of opportunity for disappointment. Have you contacted Samsung to just have the device replaced under warranty? I'm sure they will take care of it quickly, there will always be a few that slip between the cracks.

You are probably right, however, I have owned samsung phones for many years and the one thing that has always been exceptional is the screen and overall display. I have never had an issue like this so While I did like many things about the fold, I was dissapointed about a few others and frankly, this was the straw that..well you know the rest.

I have decided to just return it - go back to my S21 Ultra and wait for the S22 at the end of the year. I may try a future Fold sometime in the future - but will probably wait a few more releases before diving in again.

thanks for the advice just the same.

    How do you disable digital wellbeing ?
    Open digital wellbeing--> 3 dots --> settings --> deny access to user data. That should make it stop tracking and eating the battery. Since stats will show 0 mins once it's done.

    The screen protector on the cover screen is preinstalled and better quality than previous generation
    Thanx for the reply, I really appreciate it! 🙂 I knew Sammy started preinstalling a protector on their high end devices, (my Note 10+ & 20 Ultra had it), & the ZF3's main screen had the newer, more durable protector preinstalled, but I wasn't sure about the outer screen until now. I preordered the ZF3, (it'll arrive in the next couple days), & if I would have needed to order a protector for the outer screen I wanted to have it in time to install day 1, (I wasn't keen on using the phone without it), so the forums confirmation was a huge help!! 👍🏽 (the ocd is pleased, lol 🤣)!

    Why is there no dedicated forum for this device? (Galaxy Z Fold 3)
    What do you mean? You're in it. This thread is in the ZF3 forum.

    This is it, I'm in the UK, don't know anyone/anywhere in London with the speed you posted.
    I have hit 500 megs in London on EE 5g

    Here is a 400 example

    The SGZF3 arrived about 2 hours ago. Using and configuring the main screen is such a large paradigm shift from what I've been used to that taking the time to customize both screens will be quite the time sink. Should be fun though. +1 on starting a new tips and tricks thread!
    I ended up installing Nova (it's what I've used for eons on other devices). It works fine and has the benefit of running the same layout on both the cover screen and the main inside screen. Less laggy than One UI home, plus custom icons and gestures.
