Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip 3 several months ago, and the phone has been a huge fan and critical success.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is Samsung’s latest in foldable phone technology, but what really distinguishes the phone is the system and interface features that take advantage of the foldable phone design.
So here are a few tips and tricks to get you the most out of your new phone.
Customizing the external screen
The Z Flip 3 has a smaller external screen, but larger than last year’s screen, which is used to display a set of alerts.
This screen can display other things besides alerts such as the clock and the rear camera lens and control the phone’s quick settings.
You can switch between the widgets displayed in the small screen by dragging the screen left and right.
You can also add widgets by long pressing on the screen, and you can customize the clock by following these steps:
Head to the settings menu, then choose the outer cover screen, and then choose the design of the watch.
You can choose from a variety of pre-built clock designs or add an image to make the clock wallpaper as you wish.

Use foldable apps
The most important feature of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the foldable screen, so Samsung allows you to force external apps to work on that screen.
This feature allows you to display two applications together in two separate parts of the screen when the screen is in portrait mode.
You can access this option by going to the system settings, then choosing the advanced settings, and then the Samsung lab.
Then you activate Flex Mode, and choose which apps you want to use this mode with.
But remember that this feature is experimental yet and Samsung has not generalized it to all applications, so you may encounter problems while operating it.

Using the Galaxy Z Flip 3’s external display for group photos
You can use the external screen of the phone to take better group photos with a better angle, by following these steps:
Head to the camera app and then tap the outer screen icon in the app.
Then you can use the phone’s internal and external screen together to display and format the image as you wish.
And you can raise your hand so you can take a picture directly without having to hold the phone or use any external accessory.
