May I know why this is removed from the Fold5 and Flip5? I used this feature every single day and now it's gone. It's detrimental to keep this feature so can it be added back with a software update??

Seconded. The Flip5 is beautiful, but the seemed to be the first glaring absence.

I just received my Z Flip 5 and I was very disappointed when I couldn't find my favorite feature of the Z series. On the left is my Z Flip4 with accessibility side key gestures and the features is removed on the Z Flip5 on the right. Honestly this is one of the biggest reasons I purchased the phone because I loved the side key gestures on my s8 and s10e.

Hopefully this can be addressed in a software update in the near future. In the meantime, you can submit an error report in the Samsung Members app under the Support tab>Send feedback. The more people that report this, the more likely it can be added back in quickly. You aren't alone in missing this functionality. 🙂

Additionally, if you download the Samsung Good Lock app from the Galaxy App store and install the RegiStar module, you can enable back-tap or side-key functionality to bring up notifications. The MultiStar module has an "I ❤️ Foldables" option for some cover screen options too.

There are even more features missing such as clockface from good lock (you can download a separate apk for it) which means no customization for always-on-display. Also, Hex themes don't work on OneUI 5.1.1 which is super annoying. I almost returned my flip 5 because of these issues.

I'm almost positive there will be imminent releases for Good Lock's Clockface app, in addition to bug fixes, as the device just came out. Be sure to report these issues nonetheless!

This was Samsung's response to my error submission 🙄😮💨
I don't understand why they couldn't have kept that feature, considering it was a toggle switch on previous versions. 🤔 Screenshot_20230814_111013_Samsung Members_1000005460_1692025813.png
