  • 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.

    although this is an expensive phone its fun to see this kind of tech finally making it into the consumer market and being seen as normal is the next step im quite exited to see this develop more.

    Hey you know how you can grab a piece of carton board and just bend it over and over and how it'll break pretty quickly? Do you also know that even strong materials will break pretty quickly if you keep bending it back and forth? Now imagine a phone where the gimmick is that it bends! So in theory you have a regular size phone which you bend open to have a pretty big screen! .. yep no, in reality it'll just break really really quickly. There is no foldable phone that will even last a fraction of time of your current smartphone. Buy this if you have money to spare and don't mind replacing the phone in a few weeks. Yes, it's that bad. F*ck it's physics, if you cause friction and bend something all the time it'll break pretty quickly. Who ever thought foldable phones was a good idea?

    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.
