Its like saying, yea im not buying that new toyota that is $50,000 and can run on pure air and fly. If its not as expensive as the black buggatti at $8 million then i dont want it even thou it uses gas and cant fly.

    Shipped and sold are 2 different thing. Were they able to sell all the shipped ones? Any numbers on sales? Damaged and returned items? A lot are refurbished at electronic stores, why?

      Good Job Sammy! Love how they find a niche and Excel in it. Following Apple like all the other Chinese vendors is sad.

        Shalemia, 21 Jul 2022Shipped isnt beign sold...and this kind of reports are fake... moreI always like these doom predictors...
        Samsung was, by their opinion, defunct some five years ago.
        Despite your childish cry, Samsung sells better than all others.

          Shipped isnt beign sold...and this kind of reports are fake bcause Samsung are despertar to sell more foldables to increase profit.

          S22 arent sell well, Z flip eighter. They need fresh CEO and CPO to mobile division.

          Removing features are not helping, we dont need Sammy to copy Apple....so Thays the reason they are desperate even in copying Apple.

            Anonymous, 21 Jul 2022The article mentioned that 7.1 million of sales are coming ... moreYeah no, this is completely wrong. The article does not say anywhere that '7.1 million of sales are coming from Z Flip3 only', it only says that IDC estimated a total of 7.1 million foldable shipments for 2021.

              Pepperpot, 21 Jul 2022The last I read it was 7 million+. 1 Fold to every 2 Flips... more4-5 months ago was 2022, this is about 2021. They were extremely aggressive and it clearly paid off. Get it widespread to get the real talk going when the she'lls, like this site, does everything they can to pretend they don't exist.

                Good I guess. Give it some 4 generations more and it will be mature enough for it to be a solid choice

                  The last I read it was 7 million+. 1 Fold to every 2 Flips. Samsung has been aggressive on the incentives in the last 4-5 months. Maybe that's the difference.

                    Foldables are gaining quite a pace these days. Congratulations 🎉 to Samsung for bringing the Flip price almost close to iPhones. I was thinking of getting an iPhone but now I'll be looking at a samsung foldable phone

                      Anonymous, 21 Jul 2022You can find the article in question in "Source" ... moreI know, but it doesn't say anything about 7.1 million z flip 3 sold. That kind of article doesn't exist.

                          What article? 😅 and no, this under 10 million is for ALL foldables and 70% of this came from flip phones not just flip 3. So it means under 7 million came from flip phones.

                          From the source "Last year, we saw almost 10 million foldable smartphones shipped worldwide."

                              Delivered but not selled to the public. That's why prediction for 2023 is under 5 millions.

                                Duck of death said Samsung sold atleast 9 million flip phones last year, how that's possible if according to this flip sales are under 7 million 🤔
