      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.

    To be honest, for limited device, new technology, new experience and exclusiveness, $2k is worth.

    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. This guy is right on the border of shill/reviewer. This ugly, overpriced, gimmicky, pointless brick will obviously Fail miserably.

    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.

    its got a crease in the middle like my grannies freshly washed pants out of the drier

    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.

    With a foldable keyboard, this would be an ideal tablet, mobile computer...carry the keyboard in a cargo pocket....and you have a handsfree (no comp0uter bag!) situation.

    It's too expensive given all the potential problems it will present in due time. End of life value is nil.

    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

    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?
