Extremely dissapointing display, advertised as 240Hz touch sampling and yet acts as it only has 60Hz sampling. Erratic touch accuracy in games especially PUBG and COD Mobile. I even got the display replaced under warranty and yet that didn’t fix the issue.

people still complain about it despite wasting their thousand euros on useless ass phones that cannot even match the quality of a cheaper camera.

Z Fold 2 consist of S21 Main Cam, S20 FE Ultrawide and S10 Telephoto Cam, which are all decent/great if not the best.

Just accept that Foldables are "Tablet in a Phone" FIRST. Not a "Camera on a Tablet"
Of course strengthening the Foundation is the first and right thing to do. If your main purpose of buying is "Camera" then just go for the S21 Ultra or other brands that is already camera focused phone
Also thanks for the exaggerated argument

Yes Huawei made a phone with a good camera setup. But it lacks Durable Inner Screen, and less features. (Because it doesn't have a Inner FFC which another "Tablet on a Phone" feature they missed, and a very good Hinge like on Z Fold 2, another small but useful feature.)

Manufacturer should focus on making Foldables, Support S-Pen, LIGHTER, THINNER, IP rated and Optimize. Which Samsung is currently doing.

Armor Frame ... expected like ... Motorola International 8000 ... hit a person's head with smartphone and that person will surely comatose in the I.C.U

The most important thing is the quality of panels so you can get the desired sophisticated calibration. This is the reason why OEMs prefer Samsung panel as opposed to LG one.

Oh yes nice and it will be expensive like apples made by Caviar.

Titanium would not come cheap though, despite its strength.

Are you seriously beating your banned Huawei chest for them now being able to read the f cking manual?

fifty shades of marketing ..

OEMs don't just slap a display on a phone and call it a day. It takes a lot of quality control and software/hardware optimization to work well. That's why DisplayMate tests many flagship displays, not just Samsung since they supply mostly of them for the global players. Smartphone displays are NOT a plug-n-play affair.

Anonymous, 19 Apr 2021They can thicken the whole phone and add an s pen slot and ... moreThat's not going to happen. Foldables primarily has to be thin. It's already more or less confirmed they're removing the pen simply because it won't fit in the next gen.
Huawei uses Samsung displays, they aren't kicking anyone's butt. They're followers selling hardware others are willing to build for them.
