            walkman8, 06 Aug 2022Why would Samsung bother with making a competitor to this? ... moreCompanies like Samsung and Apple should also be scared of people ever finding their brain cells, as nobody sensible would have ever bought any product from big tech in the past decade if there were choices other than small white bird shit, or coiled dog shit.

            It's all still shit.

              Huawei phones are optimized for everything you can think about. Try and get their product and see by yourself how it work out

                Fredwinia, 06 Aug 2022Better have a slower processor . Better for battery life. You must be lovin' that Pentium 4 of yours.

                  Like you've said, it's DOA. As is this the only smartphone with such foldable concept and it isn't working, why would Samsung spend millions to make a competitor to not just unsuccessful product, but to the concept as a whole?
                  They have their thing going (Flip and Fold format) and they're doing fine, the only competitors are limited to China and they aren't really a blockbuster even in their mainland.
                  The only competitor Samsung should be afraid of in the near future - is Apple.

                    Wow
                    This battery life is off the charts

                      It's a commendable effort to progress smartphone design. But it creates more problems than it solves in the quest for a bugger screen. In what world would it not make more sense to get a flagship phone and an iPad for the same money?

                        Buggy, unoptimised software has killed the standby power and overall efficiency of this. I would expect with a properly optimised software, you're looking more like 60hrs, tablet-mode, 120Hz display. And in phone-mode, 60Hz display, closer to 90hrs.

                        I'm guessing that QSD 888+ chipset is thirsty just like the QC 8g1, and the BOE panel they could source for the AMOLED is not very efficient either.

                        Frankly, I don't see these getting rectified, so this is DOA. Hopefully, it forces Samsung to copy them and build a very similar competitor.

                          Better have a slower processor . Better for battery life.

                                  If ever, and I mean ever Huawei manages to solve their chipset problems, The U.S will not be able to stop them again.

Their biggest selling points before the hardware ban were the Kirin chips and very good cameras with custom Sony sensors. The kirin chips in particular distinguished them from other Chinese brands. However now they have lost access to both of these so it's a difficult situation. In China now it's very difficult for them also as almost everybody wants 5g phones so lack of 5g is their biggest problem. Harmony OS is their main selling point now in their homeland but that can't really make up for the lack of 5g. Will be interesting to see if they manage to survive in the smartphone business until they can come up with a solution to the 5g issue

                                      It seems Huawei is out of business due to sanctions. They lost access to most recent technology and it is clearly visible here. With the size of a small tablet and small battery the times were not expected to be excellent, but this is beyond poor.
