yes you must replace the whole screen, no other way to fix it when the panel is damaged even not by the user itself, OLED panel is really unreliable since long time ago, that's why Samsung is pushing their QLED TV lineup rather than OLED like LG, because LCD is more stable than OLED panel
Just received update One UI 6.0 last night (26/12/2023)
I have used Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 for two years now and I faced two defects. The first one is the hinge. Suddenly I could not open my phone 180 degrees flat. The second one is the screen. Suddenly green line appeared on my screen after i updated my software to UI 5.1.1. Samsung insisted by saying it is because of hardware issue. But I am very sure that it is software issue, because my Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra also experienced the same fate when I updated the software with UI 5.1.1. So you all can judge
I've used my Z Flip 3 since Aug/2021 when the Z Flip 4 was launched, it was hard to find a cover, and it presented some small issues, but overall I'm satisfied with 8.4/10, the main pet peeve it's the battery life, if you go out, you'll need to be monitoring battery to get your Uber back home, even though you have the power saving option on, however, the screen hasn't scratched or shown any major issue as most people prevented me to buy it, I love to be able to carry my phone as a small item, next year I'll probably buy a Pixel 8, but as part of 2022-2024, it was a good phone!
Used to have this phone but i sold it before any issues appeared
Mps, 26 Sep 2023The worst experience with flip3 , not a good buy at all. And the support given to me is pathetic.Indeed, stay clear of this phone, does not matter what warranty you have, Samsung will not support you.
My honest opinion after having used this phone since winter 2021/2 is that it is Good phone. I got a great deal on it and picked it up, been very durable and reliable ever since. I've dropped it countless times and broken the cases I got with it, but never the actual phone. No cracked screen or any real/substantial damage. I did have to replace the plastic screen protector and do so about every 5 months or so.
The bad side:
Battery has just gone awful, constantly charging it, I used to be able to keep it at 85% and do most of my day but have to charge it to 100% and it's just super bad.
It over heats like crazy when using data, charging or gaming. But it doesn't really ever affect performance.
The depreciation of this phone is crazy, from £999 new to now being able to pick it up for something like £300.
Overall, awesome experience, but I'm going to soon be switching to the iPhone 15 pro max.

I have this phone and I play a lot of Pokémon go and this phone struggles hard to play it and half the time I have to keep my phone plugged in not worth it if you game a lot on a phone. still cool to have but not what I was expecting.
Please, don't buy this crap, one of my familly members had this phone and just a few months after he was given it (at christmas) a line appeared in the middle of the screen and a few days later, the entire screen has died, he never dropped it or anything. And the battery sucks.
Temi, 09 Jun 2023How do you listen to music from YouTube when the cellphone is folded. I just started using thi... moreIn folded mode, just say "hey Google, turn on YouTube music" I usually say "Hey Google, turn on TuneIn music".
2) Alternative: setting >Cover Screen >device out-put >music > (What music apps u prefer, YouTube Music, Downloaded gallery, TuneIn, FM, Radio..)
Personally i prefer the 1st, just asked the "Google Assistant" to help u open any apps, text n reply text messages, set/check schedules, alarm or even the traffic n weather. So i don't really need to unfold the phone at all to do anything. Hope it helps.

How do you listen to music from YouTube when the cellphone is folded. I just started using this HP. Always open the new HP can listen to music. If I fold it will automatically turn off

this phone stinks! i have not put hard use on them and gone through two phone screens that do not allow you to see anything - looked like a black blob, insurance won't cover , made me go through samsung and no phone.in the meantime so i had to buy a new one! battery is pathetic, takes at least 3 charges / day and i uses less than most people i know. do yourself a favor and do not buy this piece of junk. know i have to either get another one- only way insurance works or buy outright anothr phone. asurion is the worst and will not give them another dime!
