    not only is the crease the worst thing in the phone, that fact is that it has a bigger screen than the samsung s10 and a lower resolution

    use it until the fold 2 or...until you manage to scratch that fragile plastic screen with even a fingernail, or dust goes under...

    Congrats, you use your phone in a very niche way. Sorry. but this is the real world, and most people don't want plastic screens. That right there is pretty much the only reason that foldable phones have not and will not see mainstream use. And you really can't expect to be taken seriously by endorsing a device that costs so much and has such a low resolution. We know you wouldn't have such a low standard for laptops, so why here? And good luck with an IP rating on a foldable device. I don't see in happening within the next decade, that's for sure. Physics is just too inconvenient for that. Really disappointing to see such a blatantly and openly anti consumer video from LTT.

      you know all the hyper critical comments come from folks who ever held the phone in their hand. it's like giving a car review of a car you never drove before. yeah the phone isn't perfect, we know that, but it's very useful everyone I have showed the phone, which is all hardcore 10 year AAPL fanboys had almost nothing but positive to say about the phone and all really liked it and thought it was very cool

  • Rick 'Billy' Rodriguez

    I'll definitely wait for the second version when it ever releases.
    But I'll definitely get the new Motorola Razr flip/smartphone/touchscreen because I have a construction job.

    Nope. A foldable tablet would make more sense. 6" folding out to 12" would make more sense as a tablet. Electronic keyboard is fine for light text input. You can always add a bluetooth keyboard.

    Full screen video on this thing makes zero sense. We ditched 4:3 video years ago, please don't bring it back with gimmicky screens...

    I just want a folding phone that’s basically like an old razor flip phone, but it‘s a normal sized smartphone on the inside.

    Wow, your videos have just become one big infomercial. I’m sorry bro but you need to back off on all the ads during your video as it takes away your credibility.

    So moving back to 4:3 ratio is advancement from 16:9.

    I love your vids mate! I love my fold, I actually end up using the front screen a lot more than I thought. I keep forgetting that I have a big screen a fold away. It took some learning, but the front screen for my is nearly 100% accurate considering I have giant hands :(, but unfolded super useful for my giant hands :)
