    Another year and they again fail to fix the hole in the top of the screens.

    Crazy. How can such a basic flaw still exist 3 years on!!! Fingers crossed the manager to fix this for the ZFold3 next year.

    I've not found the hole enough of a problem to care about it must be said. I expected it'd be a right pain.

    I have noticed that the latest samsung updates have, as usual, made my phone worse to use. Things that were instant (searching settings for specific options, camera loading, rotation detect) are now slower. They have also changed how multitasking works, making it way worse to use and I've now stopped using this routinely used feature. I'm guessing they have changed this all to make it easier to cross develop for their fold series as all of this works reasonably well if you imagine it with extra scren space.

    It used to adjust the scaling in the floating windows, so it was like having a small but useful phone screen. Now everything is huge and it's barely useable (imagine when you had a 1280x1024 monitor back in the day and the Windows default was 640x480, leaving you with no space to use the PC properly - THAT is what they did).

    The process to set up split screen is now awful. You used to be able to set one as a split screen and then choose from open applications which one you wanted in the second. You could also choose from all applications and so on. Now, you just get a page of all the apps supporting split screen, making it clunky and hard to use. Reviewers are raving about it... I'm guessing because they get free / early phones and need that to continue to carry on making money from it all.

    Never noticed the hole, in all honesty. (Mate 20x) It's just one of those things that people seem to constantly complain about.

    It's a phone.
    It's phone-shaped.
    It looks like it phones a phone just like any other phone.

    Couldn't tell you much beyond that, except maybe this one has a ton of different camera modes that most people won't really use.

    I'll wait until folders become viable again.

    I love playing with the camera stuff. 960FPS whilst I'm firing my semi automatic is awesome. You can see the action cycling and the casings flying out with little bits of fire and glowing and spinning. WHEEEE! Also slow motion footage of me pouring boiling water into a pan that's at a few hundred degrees and it exploding everywhere. 1 second turned into about 30 seconds is awesome.

    I would not think to do this. Why would you do this? Can't say it sounds very safe having boiling water exploding everywhere....

    I have Mate 20 Pro. Can't see any point of getting new phone as paying thousand pounds more for not much more of a phone.

    Most people will play with them... but in the end just stick it on auto. So long as it takes reasonable pics for their Twitbookagram, they're happy.
