I have a flip, would not recommend anyone buying such a dangerous phone, regularly over heats and all u get from Samsung is we can come out and repair it! They are selling these phones knowing full well of the dangerous and are doing g absolutely nothing about.


I just bought the Samsung flip a week ago. Overheats so much then it gives couple of seconds before it shuts down. All apps overheat it even WhatsApp! The phone is not cheap and I did not expect that I won’t even be able to be on an app without it turning off. Besides the battery doesn’t last at all.


Just purchased the new flip z and it overheats still smh paid too much for this
