    Are foldable phones the future? Do you care about the crease? WIll you buy a Fold? Sound off!

      Want it,but definitely waiting for 2 gen or for the company to ship out improvements regarding the screen... the hinge that allows debris to get under the screen which could break it,isn’t worth the buy.
      Find a way to extend the protection layer on the screen to the frame and to stop debris from getting under the screen. If the company make those fixes,than I will buy it. Otherwise the wait for gen 2 is real.

      I desperately want to buy the Fold, but am holding out for gen 2. That is what I did with the Note.

      Thanks for this review. Seems like everyone's on the Samsung Fold hate train, but you have a balanced and insightful perspective.
      If you asked me, the bad press seems engineered. Certain brands have a lot to lose if the Fold is a success.

    I don't want a creaseon my display if I'm paying $2,000. You can say it's foldable so it comes with the territory but to me if it cost that much they should figure something out.

    The one good thing about all the shilling for this phone I’ve endured over the past week, is that at least I know who’s not to be trusted for opinions in the youtube tech world.

    if you fold anything a number of times it starts to go weak and brittle on the fold line, bet none of these devices made by any smartphone manufacturer will be in any fit state to use before your 2-3 year contracts are up when you can renew your phone... maybe 2nd or 3rd generation models.. in fact there are already reports of review models screens ' lifting' a film which looks like a screen cover but isn't, people have peeled it back and the screen has malfunctioned or died completely.

    So they made a new Nokia Communicator. The asymmetrical hinge crease can not be unseen, it's not wide enough when folded and the outer screen is a joke. There's also no S Pen. Please tell me a device other than the Note that would really go great with an S Pen if not the Fold. Sorry, back to the drawing board.

    3-5 years from now, a folding phone will be standard. Similar to 4 wheels on a suitcase, just takes a some time until it catches on and the price comes down. Who wouldn't want to watch video on double the screen size? Gen 2 phone will be much better so best to wait.

    Sorry for price of £1900, your welcome to it. I would imagine that crease getting more prominent over time. Oh and watching RU-clip or a film on it with again a crease line going through it especially in dark scenes and at lower brightness settings would put people off. Front screen is to small and narrow. Hawaii mate x gives you a better single screen size. Although no thanks again at £2000.

    I guarantee you phones will not replace laptops. The screens, even if they can be folded, are way too small to type on like a laptop. However, I think tablets have the potential to replace laptops.

    RIP Samsung fold, too many issues and a foldable screen will have huge trade offs as we have seen in just TWO DAYS! That screen just won't last and its not waterproof and so thick and that small front screen is a joke, so 70s

  • Kent Garrett

    Great video! Like it or not if Samsung didn't do this the market would still be stuck on slabs with specs being pushed. If we didn't innovate we'd all still be using the Palm Pilot. I praise Samsung for trying to think outside the box! If risk takers didn't try and support new technology there never would've been an iPhone. Remember when they launched at close to 1k when everyone else offered free phones?

    No phone is worth that price tag. You were given the phone for free to review. Spend 2000 dollars of your own money and use the phone for a year, then do a full review to see how the phone has held up from daily use for one year.

    dude, just admit this phone completely sucks and missed the mark. Aside from the fact that the screen is EXTREMELY fragile (prone to mark and dings because it's plastic not glass and also broke on many reviewers out there, just run a search), it looks terrible, has an awkward form factor (too thick and tapered when closed), front screen is basically a glorified screen saver, the middle crease is not acceptable at this price point, Android tablet software still not there yet, it's not practical (too cumbersome to open for a quick glance)... and so on and so forth. Basically a first generation brick that costs an arm and a leg. Samsung is literally running a mass worldwide BETA test on a foldable phone, that is years away from being ready for prime time and making the testers pay big money out of their pockets for it. Genius from Samsung. (for the record, I do own the S10+ and I am a Samsung/Android fanboy)

    Compared to an incremental upgrade, single screen phone with a notch like iPhone XS Max (512GB) costs almost $1,500, the Fold is definitely worth the price and cheap from technology (512 GB storage, three screens, etc,), usability, and novelty perspective.

      There is nothing subjective about iOS, the fact is, it’s the most secure and stable operating system in the world. My iPhone crashed once in 2 years, and the reason was a third party app. I’ve never in the 12 years, I’ve used an iPhone, got a bug.

      As far as the quality of hardware design and materials used, apple will always use the highest quality components available, even if they have to buy it from competitors. You gotta respect that. Here’s another fact; 80% of the iPhone hardware is manufactured in Germany, again, in pursuit of quality.
      I don’t know about you, but I like to use products that are well thought-out, objectively designed while they look and feel wonderful.
      All that costs more, obviously.

    Less functionality than the standard S10(no headphone jack, not waterproof), more clunky and harder to carry, easier to break due to having moving parts, a giant ass notch that could fit 7 cameras and a crest in the middle of the screen. It's a cool piece of technology but basically a useless gimmick to show off. Sounds like a cool idea in theory like flying cars but it's definitely not the future. Also who even uses tablets? Grandmas who find laptops too complicated and terrible parents who give them to their kids?

    Galaxy Fold is more appropriate as a foldable smart mobile as the main screen folds inward thus, it is protected. The small secondary screen out side is the smart idea, I am able to make calls and send sms without opening the primary screens. I will definitely opted to own the Galaxy Fold over the Mate X, moreover its cheaper. However, if the Galaxy Fold has the S Pen just like the Note Series, then it will be really really awesome. I am able to do my office work in a wider screen without carrying a tap or laptop. Half of the primary screen will be turned into a keyboard, thus we are able to type just like a laptop. I really don't care about the notch for selfie camera as it doen't interfere but dont ever having it with the flip for selfie camera like some other brands are doing now, it will dislocate and spoil.Tq Samsung for making our office work alot easier.
