The Galaxy Z Fold 4 from Samsung was released last month with enhanced functionality, durability, and style. Additionally, the manufacturer lessened the visibility of the wrinkle on the inner folding display. However, it is still present and frequently gets in the way of the content displayed on the screen. Thankfully, if you have the courage, there is a remedy. According to well-known Samsung insider Ice Universe , removing the pre-applied screen protector helps the crease look lighter. He even posted a picture contrasting the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s less obvious fold with the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s.
This is a fairly rash approach to the issue, though. Samsung expressly advises customers not to remove the screen protector. It serves to protect the main display screen from scuffs and other external forces as part of the display assembly. The initial Galaxy Fold from the firm had no such warning, and it was a complete failure. After removing the pre-applied protection, many reviewers experienced folding screens that were cracked or malfunctioning. The first-ever Samsung foldable’s market release was delayed by this incident.
Given everything said above, it might not be a good idea to follow the manufacturer’s advice and do something else. Your $1,800 phone could get broken. The screen protector appears to be less crucial to the display assembly, though, with the release of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 last year. Numerous user claims that the protectors came off on their own were found online. The screen held up when some daring souls even risked to manually remove the top layer.
