Selfie freaks whould still have the option in the other mode.

I don't have that issue of ads at all and I haven't disabled anything at all. Coming from iOS it's very difficult to adapt. I miss the smoothness of the UI especially while browsing internet. I hope latest and greatest androids don't have this issue. But very frankly I am loving it. I have tried Dex and video out. They are better than native video out of my iPhone 7 plus. So far I am happy except for this touch latency.

Talk about apple "inferiority" in an arti... moreSome guys lyk u can't handle reality.
All the greatest parts of the Android OS are absent on iOS.
You are frustrated that your 1000 dollar purchase isn't the most technically advanced while being handicapped instead.
Like a handicapped guy watching someone run, you are simply jealous.
Trillion dollar company, yet failing to innovate and having to shamelessly copy features.
Nothing wrong with stating how our android devices are, especially with all latest cutting edge tech. Combined with a superior ecosystem of apps, Just stating facts... Sorry if I touched a nerve...

My Galaxy S9+ is unusable without a 3rd party paid app to disable Samsung's bloatware. It pops up advertisements constantly with nearly every single use. It even popped up an advertisement saying that Samsung noticed that I went for a walk, and I should invite others to participate in a Samsung fitness program. WTF. It pops up advertisements for Link to Windows when I plug in ANY USB device. I currently have 60 apps disabled to make it usable. I have to disable Samsung's Galaxy Store to keep more from arriving every few weeks. If not for Package Disabler Pro, I would have returned the phone as defective for a refund. Samsung is not an option for me ever again.
if samsung will just turn this into a dual screen instead of folding i would get it. The big problem with this for me is the easily scratched up screen and the creasing and not properly closing flat together
GrahamD, 12 Sep 2020Samsung are still piling on the boatware on to their premium devices, what a disappointment.You have a wrong idea of what is bloatware, samsung includes, at least in flagship devices, alternative versions that blend better with its own OS version and ultimately with KNOX, and whatever apps you do not like, you can disable, simply as that, if you complain about ,"bloatware" then you most certainly have never had a premium samsung device, it is really plain dilly to criticize something without deep knowledge about it

Overall a great phone, but the battery life is disappointing. If I'm going to buy this as phone and tablet, I expect at least 2 days battery life, even on the expense of being thicker and heavier.
"No ingress protection rating."
I think that it would take a long LONG time for us to see a Samsung foldable screen smartphone with an IP68 rating. That is why for now I'm sticking to my LG V50 with DualScreen case. Once Samsung already got a solution to include IP68 rating and S Pen for future Z Folds, I definitely don't mind buying one.
Nik C, 12 Sep 2020Anandtech recently published a piece about the adaptive refresh rate on the note 20 and found ... moreThank you for the valuable input! The ambient light logic clears-up a lot of confusion. It is still not the most elegant or easy to grasp system, but that is a different conversation. As for the battery life numbers, we double-checked (actually triple, at this point) and, as stated in the review, the first set is done at a fixed 120Hz refresh rate, while the second at a fixed 60Hz. Those numbers stand and are verified.
However, we reemphasize that real-world use, with a mix of adaptive mode (working correctly), 60Hz mode, perhaps the special 48Hz limiter for games and use of the cover display for some tasks, you are likely to end up with an actual endurance number somewhere between the three we published.
This sentence from the review says it all
"One could argue that the Z Fold2 is easily the most mature foldable out of all of these novice devices."
Samsung HAVE the best foldable without a doubt hardware wise and thats not including all the software enhacnements they doing
"The other large foldable on the market - the Huawei Mate Xs - is by no means a better option. It also costs as much as the Galaxy Z Fold2 launch price so we would still recommend the latter. "
For the UK the Mate Xs is more than the Fold 2 even though it was released 1 year before so its a no-brainer ;)
Well done Samsung you have smashed it you are the front runner in foldables no contest.
