    I can’t help thinking this technology just isn’t ready yet. Am certainly not paying 2k for one of these phones till this stuff is resolved. If I do buy a fold I think I’ll wait till the 3rd or 4th generation comes out

    Well done for the clarification. Samsung are asking $2000 for this phone, it's held together with a protective film. How long is that going to last ?

    Have to say that it won't have much effect. Samsung gets a pass over and over. Consider the exploding phones - just imagine if it was an iPhone.

    im more worried that the screen is made out plastic and will not last even a year. You will see the amount of scratches you will get with plastic. Not worth 2 grand period. this product need to be recalled . im worried for other that the life of the phone will be very short. please people dont buy the phone. Just the concept of folding the phone over and over again will cause the plastic to wear out and buckle.

    8 years in development ..

    Feels like a brick with a way too small first screen
    A Gap in between the screens when folded shouldn't be there
    Uneven line between the screens
    The issue with a screen protector
    An eyebrow with cameras and sensors doesn't feel right, Id rather have a full screen experience with a sliding up or a motorized hidden camera.

    Sorry, but it's still not ready!

  • SpartanDiab
    SpartanDiab 15 hours ago

    Honestly a $2000 phone should not be possible to break so easily, and no clear warnings on the packaging! that's really bad. relying on what looks like a screen protector to save a 2k phone screen is poor design.

    • Cosmic Ganks

      you're not buying a rock, or a Diamond, you're getting a delicate piece of technology; people fail to see this and treat their technologies with "disrespect" all phones i had were almost new, even with plastic screens, people need to keep their stuff well treated...

      like, you're not going to buy a Ferrari or Lambroghini to go dirve in the Desert, with rocks and bumps on it, would you?

      Same applies with phones, Computers, tablets, etc etc.

    I also wonder why the whole screen has to be plastic instead of just the fold.

    • The Rolling Troll
      The Rolling Troll 15 hours ago

      Also, 200.000. That's 34 times per hour for a year if you're awake for 16 hours. Say you're one of those people who use their phone 4 hours a day, and say you open it once every two minutes, which doesn't seem too ridiculous, that's just 4 years for a 2000 euro phone screen. I mean, it's a lot still, but it's quite close to what some people actually may achieve.

  • Rocky

    The Galaxy fold proves to be a flop and not ready for primetime. The concept is great but we're just not there yet. People always wonder why Apple is so late in certain things and then we are reminded when issues like these arise. That said, Apple also had their growing pains (Antenna gate) (Bend gate). Im not sure how this even got the O.K for production. Seems like Samsung rushed and wanted to crown this before anyone else beat them to it. Thats my two cents anyhow.

    Galaxy Folds break? "People don't know how to read instructions! It's the people's fault for taking that layer off! It's ok, Samsung learns from their mistakes."
    Hotel? "Trivago"

    I really would like to try one out for digital art. Can you open Autodesk Sketch Book and see how it runs. And would you be willing to have a artist review for all your largest format phones? Most digital art reviewers don’t get the newest phone tech, and I started digital art on a Galaxy Note.

    At 5:44 you show Joanna's tweet as an example of dust collecting under the "special screen protector" through "normal use". But the tweet seems to say that Joanna did peel a bit the protector so who knows is that happens through day to day life of the phone.
