Hi, I'm a noob and just got a Z fold3 from the Philippines, but I'm now using it here in Australia. Looks like there are features which I can't use because it's not compatible. I was wondering if I could flash the firmware with an Aussie region firmware so I can maximise the features of this expensive phone.

Appreciate your inputs and thanks in advance!

    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 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.
    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 🤣)!
    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

    Anyone believe it will around $1600?

    Samsung reduced the (UK) RRP from £1799 to £1599 a few months back.
    I cannot believe Samsung would be foolish enough to raise RRP again for Fold3.
