    Why does anyone need a phone that folds anyway ?
    Think that this is absolutely useless... The review was quite exhaustive though...

      +mmw I'd rather buy a tablet.. with a network connection... That'd be way better .. as I would get a much more durable screen.. and one that does not have a bend going down the Middle of it... And it would also have more productivity..

    N'ah. Not for me.
    It's too tick. I know it needs to be but think of that bulking out your pocket. Especially as it seems to be trendy to shove them in your rear pocket of skinny jeans right now. XD
    Also i can just imagine that over time, when those updates that definitely don't slow your phone down actually start definitely slowing your phone down that that 'continuity' feature os going to be PAINFULLY slow after a year or so.
    Finally i suspect that even though its a big battery, it's going to take a lot of power to run the whole device, so actually wont last that long.

    I read some of the comments saying in few years we will laugh about this etc. we live today, in few years, with the way the technology is moving , every gadget you have will be a thing of past , but that didn’t stop you from buying it today, did it ?

    • Don DoDat
      Don DoDat 13 days ago

      Johnny Five well , I meant it’s a very practical idea. Many times I am out and want to use the tablet for surfing the net and the phone mode is never the right mode and very different for using the web. I know I would buy one but not the Samsung. I would probably buy the Huawei
      Btw I don’t believe in stupidity. Why this company pick a name like huawei that I would have a hard time to even look for it?? If you want to become an international company then wtf you use a name like that.
      Btw I don’t believe in Chinese product, but I would buy this one.
      Just like when apple wouldn’t come up with bigger screen phones and I had to buy Samsung -home. Just because apple was so stupid and still is , that didn’t mean big screen was not the right market. In fact if you look at the smart phones today ,almost all of them are big screen. You see apple the market leader, at least then, got bought into the bullshit stupid idea of one handed girlish operation. they lost their ass and shared the image with Samsung. That’s why I will always think of Tim Cook as the stupidest man alive. And he has proven his stupidity over and over again. Apple will give up more market share for not coming up with folding phones.

    How is the feel of a plastic screen? That is the one thing that concerns me since I had the Samsung Glyde before Samsung went full on into smartphones and those plastic screens felt like crap swiping and over time would deteriorate which I would like to know how durable these new folding screens will feel and hold up

  • Tyler Spilker
    Tyler Spilker 28 days ago

    This phone exists to change consumer perspective of real flagship
    devices. The change is intended to make flagship devices seem like mid
    range devices.
    The ultimate goal is to ensure that actual phones
    do not get cheaper as people want to despite actually important features
    (battery life, user replaceable battery, device longevity, durability,
    reliable features like 3.5mm jacks) are allowed to continue to be erased
    while simultaneously breaking the $1000 mark for the average phone user
    on a yearly basis.
    I saw nobody calling this stuff out for what
    it is and I am very disappointed in all smartphone reviewers for giving
    this pile of gold plated trash any credit for "innovation" for giving us
    things we don't need in smart phones.

  • giggybyte
    giggybyte Month ago

    Yeah, I'll have to pass on this one. This phone represents everything about the current trend of phones just getting bigger and bigger every year. The folded screen looks too tiny to actually be useful, and the unfolded screen has this weird square-ish aspect ratio (check out all that wasted screen space at 4:02, on top of the cameras literally cutting into the video, wtf?).

    I currently own the LG V40, and even that feels huge, not to mention nearly impossible to use one-handed because of how tall it is. I can't imagine using the Fold as my daily driver; everything about it just seems so unwieldy to me. Maybe I'm just not in the target demographic for this thing. At least my phone still has a headphone jack.

    I really hope this is just a one-off gimmick phone, and weird folding screens like this don't become the norm, at least not in their current implementation.

    The Galaxy Fold = overhyped, broken, and now delayed
    The most overhyped device of 2019 is still having issues. That plastic screen that peels away easily must be addressed. The lie about user error and blaming MBKHD and the Verge has been exposed thanks to the delay.

    That crease though. And I don't understand the point of a folding phone which doesn't really present a wider screen for watching videos. Those of us who don't insist on Cutting Edge technology are happy to wait a generation.

    I mean, my ZTE Axon M is dual screen 'Gorilla Glass 5'. Why would it be so hard to make two screens without a bezel on one side and build it with the same form factor of the Axon M? I play Ark and other popular titles on it and have gotten use to the small black bezel running down the middle. Either way, I paid $260 for it brand new and am satisfied.
