I peeled mine off yesterday and fitted the whitestone dome one, went on perfectly much to my surprise, feels great, my mate who has a fold as well commented that the screen looks sharper than his with the original one on.
I have had the Whitestone Dome inner (and outer for that matter) on my Fold 3 for months now and the WSD Inner one is SO MUCH BETTER than the stock on and my brother has tried a few other ones before installing the WSD on his inner.

The BIGGEST issue with all of the others he tried was the same as the stock one:

"The adhesive was not strong enough to keep hold after use, the WSD Film has so much of a stronger bond that it will not peel up easy, if at all."

There is a reason the install kit includes a removal kit as well, it's hard to peel off (I peeled one off a dead Fold 3 and without the removal kit, it was hard).

The overall feel is nice but as you stated, the clarity and the fact that it resist fingerprints, smudges and dust better than the stock keeps me from having to clean it as much and it just looks better overall. :D

    I used the Samsung Members App --> Support and then Text Chat.

    I just read through the transcript and I actually started asking about another issue I had, which was that it wouldn't open completely flat and had lost the snap when you close it. I also mentioned in the chat the issue with the screen protector.

    I had to send them pictures of the issues, and they arranged for the engineer visit. I got the same messages that it would cost me £40 if there wasn't a fault. When they guy came out he looked at the screen and said that it would need a new screen because "when you remove the screen protector they crack down the middle" which I thought was BS and I asked him if they was really the case. He ended up transplanting the motherboard from my phone into a new chassis with new screens and new batteries.

    He said it needed a new screen, I didn't think it did...

    As for the phone not opening fully, it wouldn't hold open like it did when it was new, not did it snap open the last 5 degrees when opening. Night and day difference when I got it back. Took about an hour to fix.

    Maybe, if yours won't open fully, you could get the same repair done under warranty?

    I started asking about the screen protector lifting as I didn't think they were going to do anything about the phone opening fully, as it was only a few degrees away from being flat, so I threw in the screen protector as well to cover my ass for the £40 as I read on Reddit that this was a warranty repair...

    I actually thought the screen protector was the reason I got the warranty repair but after reading what you posted, it must have been the folding issue. I've just looked at I've deleted the photos I sent them, but the folding issue was very minor, which is why I thought the screen protector was my ace card.

    Which outer screen one did you use, I'd like one that's the same material as the wsd inner but can only find glass ones.
    I am using the WSD Tempered Glass for the Outer Screen. Honestly, feels just fine. I would not use a film on a non-folding screen. Just better overall to me.

    I took mine off and replaced it with the Whitestone Dome Film which is waaay better

    Here is my Reddit post on installing the WSD Film: https://www.reddit.com/r/ZFold3/comments/tji7a9

    My inner screen protector has started coming up right along the crease. It started just at the edge and has started going down along the fold for the last week or so. Has anyone else had this problem? I was thinking I would probably get one of the WD replacement ones and swap them out. I'd probably have someone do it for me so I don't mess it up. Anyone else experience this and is that the best screen protector to get?
    Pretty common I think, lots of posts around Reddit about it etc. Whitestone don't do their glass one anymore but I think their PET one is good for it.

    Mine started with a couple bubbles near the middle. Next day worse. Removed it, going without for now and may replace. Reviews on Amazon say they only last so long.
