Flip 4 Screen Issues, Lines on hinge

Fold & Flip Phones

I received my Flip 4 less than a month ago and it already has a white line across on the screen at the hinge and three little lines coming off the left hinge.  The screen itself has very bad response.  The middle upper area just goes completely dead so I have to restart it to even use the phone. Really disappointed in this phone. I have been a Samsung Galaxy user for years and this phone didn't even make it to 30 days. I can't return it because I just missed the 20 day return mark.  So sorry was dealing with Hurricane Ian and couldn't get my phone or internet to work to deal with it beforehand.  This is making me rethink Samsung all together.  Do better Samsung.

Sorry to read you're dealing with Ian (we went thru Harvey, lost everything because of 6 ft water in our previous home).

My wife keeps reminding not to get a Fold, because in her words:

"a folding screen will never be"

Best of luck to get by the Ian aftermath

My flip 4 is a month old and just out of warranty so they won't cover the issue. This phone has a hinge defect in my opinion. It has turned my screen black.
