This is why you shouldn’t throw your smartphone on the bed: Samsung’s novelty stores this as a fall event, after which you may be denied warranty repairs.

Samsung has taken extra precautions against false warranty claims from Galaxy Z Flip3 users. As it became known, the new flagship clamshell phone registers all cases of falling. Samsung engineers can refer to stored records when a customer calls a service center to determine if damage should be covered under warranty.

Using these logs, which record free falls based on accelerometer data, Samsung engineers can determine if a Galaxy Z Flip 3 provided for repair fell from more than 1 meter away. Otherwise, Samsung may refuse free repairs even if the phone is under warranty.

There are already several reviews from real Galaxy Z Flip3 users who were denied free repairs under warranty. But there are other cases as well: One Galaxy Z Flip3 user reports that Samsung was willing to repair the phone under warranty even after engineers determined that the device in question had been dropped three times, with the last drop occurring 10 hours before how the screen broke. The company was so kind as the buyer approached within 14 days of the purchase date. The rest were less fortunate.

So Galaxy Z Flip 3 owners will have to get rid of the habit of throwing their phone on the couch or bed. No, it will not harm your smartphone, but the information recorded by the device may cause difficulties with warranty service in the future. It is logical to assume that similar information will be recorded by other Samsung smartphones, as well as from other manufacturers.

Firstly, the watch scored 6 points on a 10-point scale of maintainability and generally positive reviews for its modular design, easy access to the screen and battery.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
