Kendra Shields, 06 Mar 2020Is that true?:)Yes watch both displays in slow motion, IPhone is a stuttery mess while S20 or any other 120hz display is buttery smooth.

120hz display with 240hz touch sampling rate makes the iPhone 11 look slow and stutter mess.

I must say that I'm really fond of having one. I think if one takes good care of it then the screen won't scratch.

Android has never and will never be as fluid and smooth as iOS due to that simple reason that Android is incredibly fragmented while iOS is a perfect uniform system since Apple controls everything.

Android is super laggy compared to iOS and yes I'm also talking about the new S20 phones - they are still highly inferior to iOS and no Android phone will ever beat iOS in smoothness and fluidity. Ever.

ThePhone, 05 Mar 2020Using the word "Android" is too general. There are some ... moreOne ui is extremely optimized for one handed usage on the tall galaxy phones.

Plus more optimized for Exynos chipset compared to SD variant.

Way more feature-rich and functional than iOS.

There are some Androids that are more optimized than iOS. But I cannot say that with OneUI. And OneUI comes with a lot of bloatware.

Battery life is surprisingly really good. Saw some battery drain videos, it lasted over 8 hours and beat out phones with larger batteries. I'm really surprised.

>>>Android is already more optimized. It's like iOS provides 30 different features/things and 28-29 of them are optimized.
While Android offering around 150-200 different things and around 20-30 might be not so optimized. So in the end, Android is still winning.

" Sorry but it's just the way things are, I still wouldn't buy an iOS device, however I will admit that what they do well. They do very very well. "

>>> Yes Apple does very very well at fooling users into buying a 1200$ dollar product with reasonable quality that probably should be no more than 700$.

They are on course to sell 2 million by year's end. It looks like they are going to do a million without blinking. All this with a vulnerable screen. It is my belief this is the only way Samsung can be on Apple's level. That's why I believe they are going all in on foldables.

Is it good?

I've maintained what I always say:- Such flips are mostly useless.

They must go ahead and create a midrange "Wrist-phone" which is an entire smartphone in the wristwatch format. If they employ Snapdragon 625 with foldable form factor and a small watch like frame, it would be awesome.

Because making it stand on your wrist is actual useful innovation...!

Thanks for the flipping phone all you got

Glasstic and UTG are certainly marketing gimmicks Samsung uses.

Speaking of the handset itself, it is actually very good despite having never tested it at all (I tested S20 series only at retailers). It's also cheaper than the Razr, too. System and gaming performance is supposedly faster than S20 Exynos thanks to efficient SD chipset (and powerful GPU), and way faster than S10 Exynos. although fragile screen means I can't recommend it for intensive gaming. That's fine if battery life is average, as it's a folding smartphone.

This and S20 or S20+ (SD) are the only Samsung handsets I can recommend. Other than the mentioned other Samsung lineups are pure rubbish and bested by Chinese OEMs and Apple.

Folding screens are epic fail. First you have crease, fragile screen, breaking hinge, no IP rating, and eventually burned out pixels at the crease. Next, it is so phat it is like having 2 phones in your pocket. Finally the price is way to high for mid tier specs and camera.
Only form factor that makes sense for expanding phones is rollable screen.

A display you can scratch or dent with a fingernail is just useless.
By the way "polymer based display" = fancy marketing word for plastic

I still feel 3 inch touch screen with qwerty keyboard is still the convenient design
