Cover screen is a very cool and nice feature of the Samsung z flip 5. But there could be improvements

 Improvements I want the most is
1) control panel and volume panel improvements and for it to match the theme of the opened phone. Ex I customized my volume and control panel to be black but on the cover screen it doesn't carry over and you cannot customize it.
2) You cannot connect a Bluetooth device on the cover screen. Make it so you can

I genuinely love my z flip 3, I have had it for a year and no issues. When. I got it I replaced the samsung screen protector with a skinomi techskin. No case, I have gotten a few scuffs on housing and that's fine for me. The ultra thin glass wasn't a problem and it does get hot in the summer. The battery life is average, I love this foldable, for sure buying the z flip 6 used in almost 3 years.

I've been using a Note 20 Ultra since June 2021 and its still been perfect except experiencing one temporary green line of death so I want to upgrade to the Z Flip 4 (a dream phone of mine) but I'm a bit confused regarding my decision after seeing mostly cons in the subreddit with high repair costs. I probably won't do high usage on it for gaming or scrolling reels as I will keep my N20U, so will it be worth it to upgrade to ZF4 from it or should I look for cheaper S23 or S22 Ultra prices?

If you really want the flip I reccomended the Z flip 5 and you could trade in your note to lower the price or seek deals with other sites like best buy (or even open box). The 5 has fixed many issues people had with the 4. Aside from this, the 5 will do 1 free screen protector and 1 free inner/main screen glass replacement if you send it into samsung under the Z Assurance program. If the idea of other repairs still stresses you could consider a warranty, but it does hold up well as seen in video from JerryRigEverything on youtube.
I wouldn't recommend the 4 if your concern is repairs & if you decide against the flip, honestly, there is no point in you upgrading to the 22 or 23 ultra unless you need a better camera or higher processing speed.
