Samsung Galaxy Fold hands-on: more than a concept

  • Δημοσιεύτηκε στις 15 Απρ 2019
  • Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is a $1980 folding phone, but you should think of it as a tablet. In the very first real hands-on video, Dieter Bohn explains what this Android device is all about.

      Funny how everyone complained when Apple took away the headphone jack, made an iphone that had a notch, and had an iphone that costs a grand, but nobody complains when Samsung ends up doing the same with this phone.

      For the review, I'd like to know how a foldable phone holds up in everyday usage. How often are you really pulling it out and unfolding it? How long until the novelty wears off and you find the folding behaviour slows you down?

    Wonder how much longer till they have 48 and 60 month leases on these things... they will never make a new $300 phone that is affordable because nobody would buy the expensive ones since they do the same thing.

    Interesting idea but it's not practical yet. We need quite a few years until the form factor gets slim and handy enough for everyday use. But we have to start somewhere. Think about where regular cell phones started and how far we've come.

    The amount of skeptical opinions on the comment section showed that people have no idea how revolutionizing this is. Sure this is look rather prototype-y, but its far more post-production that was expected from it. this is the future of smartphones/tablets/laptops/smartwatch, maybe even more.

    This Samsung Amoled display will have burn in (aka ghost images) in just a month of use if you do any gaming on it...(just like all of their phones)... Samsung won't repair it ..they will just degrade rest of the pixels and you will have burn in a week or less after their repairs...I am never buying another Samsung after what happend to my s8+ in their service centers...
