Picked up my pre-booked device last night from the Samsung store. Initially booked the black, but changed to the green colour, and it looks excellent. The phone has dual SIM slots plus esim support. Waiting for my Spigen Slim Armor Pro case, it will be delivered today. The phone is stuck on the July security update, probably will take a day or two for it to get the latest update.
wtf 8.5k for a case rip logic
My phone has shipped and should arrive in a couple days! Final leg of the wait!!
i ordered it just now and delivery date 11th. rip logic of flash order or whatever

after all the offers my effective price came down to 1,12,000. once i remove that from old phone it will be around 22000

my only regret is cams from iphone 12 pro max

if possible please let me know your opinion on below ones
1. camera compared to your previous device
2. inside screen plastic feel like fold 2? can it be easily damaged?
3. battery drain?
4. any heating issues you faced?

1. Previous device was iphone 12 pro max and before that it was note 20 ultra.. Compared to those two the camera on this is decent. Not that great.
2.no idea how the plastic on fold 2 felt.
3. There is a battery drain issue. Other users have also reported the same.
4. The phone does heat up near the camera sometimes.

The signal reception on this is bad sometimes using airtel and jio ... Still stuck on the July update... Probably coming few updates will solve the problems

Hi. Got my Fold 3 on the 11th with offline booking. Dealer managed to get the Phantom Green color. Coming from an S21 Ultra. The phone is a beast literally. Only thing I miss is the large front screen of the S21 Ultra and the Fold 3 is heavier. Otherwise the phone is a beautiful machine. Still setting it up. So much to do_Once you open that inside screen it brings a smile instantly.

Wait,what 1,12,000?
How did you manage that price?What offers?
I want to buy one but currently no offers.
How do I hunt for more offers?

Anyone knows how to activate Samsung Care+ or ADLD that came along with the phone?
It would take 3 days for the option to show up… Then u would have to activate it using the method given in the attached image. That's how's I activated my plan. Check the benefit's section in Samsung member app after 3 days of phone activation.

    I didn't realize there are 2 options....instant and deferred! But in my experience with cashify....they always stick to their promised value as long as your assessment is true!

    on samsung shop app when i click on exchange and put my s21+ 256gb it shows deffered exchange value of 62360.
    The S21+ is in pristine condition,my question is will Samsung/cashify honour this exchange value or will they throw tantrums while paying the amount later.Attaching screenshot of the same.
    I went to a samsung cafe and the offered me 57,000(including 7k exchange bonus).
    Anyone else has experience with samsung deffered exchange programs?

    if its in pristine condition as you said then you will definitely get the value mentioned, to my experience they always keep their promise. gl
