talha5007, 11 Sep 2018yes, they screen won't explode with it can be a flimsy flex... moreohhh by the way excuse me!

Luxor, 04 Sep 2018The screen wont explode. Dont worry. yes, they screen won't explode with it can be a flimsy flexible screen maybe, and as I said they better not screw things like how they did with Note7.
and by the way I own a Note7(FE) instead of going to Note8 as its aspect was not practical for me.

geordie81, 04 Sep 2018Note 9 has a huge battery so ur point is? Sad people still ... morelol, seriously? u haven't red my comment right, didn't I mentioned Samsung better not to screw like they did with adding huge battery without proper interior design.
if they get sloppy again then if not battery then any other thing might get messed like flimsy flexible screen maybe.
by the way I bought Note7 (FE) few months back instead of going to Note8 as its aspect was not practical for me.

walter, 05 Sep 2018we have a samsung fan boy in here. why not try to buy other... moreI think your confusing Samsung phones with iPhones which are renowned for their ease of use and reliability. Samsung experience is one of the heaviest but most feature packed skins in android and has more of a learning curve in comparison to Stock.

Plus who cares if someone is a fan boy let people like and buy what they want, it's no ones business. Yeah there are other brands which may be cheaper but to most people want a flagship phone with all the bells and whistles. I'd pick Samsung and Sony over any brand anyday

If you're going to hate on a group of people for no reason, a good place to start would be to know what the heck you're talking about.

I find it hard to believe that many people will buy a foldable phone. Can't see it for myself, strikes me as a gimmick but then the market is so fragmented that some people are bound to jump on it, though not literally.

lolme, 04 Sep 2018for the glory of satan of course! LOL jokes (kuddos if ... moreThe downside is that it will be plastic and rubber all around (since glass and aluminium can't bend), at it will seriously mess with the internals. I just don't see any upsides for this except the argument 'ooo it can fit in your pocket easily', ummm... so? What about cases? What about screen protectors? I want my phone to be a luxurious tool that I carry with me everyday, not a rubber toy. This is just a gimmick and will flop so badly.

And yeah, I remember the meme lol

LG Superfan, 04 Sep 2018Dual screen would be great main large one which can be fold... moreI can't see that too useful. For me it would be too big of an access barrier to my phone. Maybe for others it would work, and if Apple made something like this for sure the sheople would love it.

I really hope we get a decent design with both screens on the outside of the phone, and just turn the back screen forward to have a tablet. This would be something I'd consider buying.

Alien , 04 Sep 2018First of all, Apple is not relevant here, as we're talking ... moreFirst of all, we are talking about smatphones, not about brands you want to eliminate or not to prove your biased view.
Most of the brands didn't allowed rooting. just the last 2-3 years did they offer this option. I remember needing to do all sorts of crazy steps to unlock my bootloader on most of my phones. Also, use custom ROM and your spying problem's solved.
I can't see why SD card slot would be so important.
Samsung, Sony, HTC have no design advancement in the last 3-4 years, maybe we can mention that the bezzles got thinner, but not by much.
Why couldn't you use a replica phone? You are just stating your biases but no real reason behind it. These are just your opinions which apparently have no backing argument, that can't be fixed. If you so desperately need an SD card, for sure you can install a custom ROM.
