    Summary
    The Fold3 is a fantastic innovative smartphone but does have issues with the dark mode and the Facebook app.

    May users open Facebook from the front display with the phone closed and then go into dark mode.

    It will usually stay in dark mode when the phone opens but may revert back to a white background.

    A more permanent solution is to use the force dark mode on all apps, but this can affect other apps that are not compatible.

    The only way to see if your apps are compatible with the force dark mode method is to test it out and revert back if there is a problem.

    Lastly, a web browser such as Google Chrome can be used to log in to Facebook with the browser in dark mode.

    There may be another option we have not found yet.
