Samsung Galaxy Fold
This phone would be awesome if the screen on the front (while folded) was a bit bigger. Perhaps others will have something I like in the future :)

Got to play with one at CES (customer had not, not on the Samsung booth). It is quite magical in real life, in particular as he had it in a skin case, so it looked pretty cool. You cannot get an idea of how amazing it is to unfold (and fold) a folding display from any photos or videos, you have to try it. The screen is superb, but the crease is obvious. It does feel well made, but the execution is flawed as others have pointed out. Motorola have taken a far more practical approach, and the next Samsung folding phone based on the same concept at Moto is also more practical. I just hope it has an S-Pen so we can use it like a real flip open notepad!

If it was under the 1000 I would have bought it :)

1. Samsung's foldable display repeatedly folds inwards close to 180 degrees, a similar display from Huawei repeatedly folds outwards.
2. We already have separate screens on smartphones working seamlessly as one (save the hideous bar in the middle), LG comes to mind.
3. Yet these companies can't seem to put 1 and 2 together and give us proper foldables with two separate screens with hard glass covers, rendered bezelless in the middle by permanently folding the screens at a 90 degree angle underneath the glass.

Just got mine earlier. I thought I will be happy. The phone is fine. I have nothing to complain. My problem is my wife. She said it was ok to buy it, but after buying it, everything suddenly changed. It was the worst purchase that I have ever made! All hell broke loose. I'm broke 😂

If they had folded it along the longer axis it would be a very pocketable 120mm and the outer small screen would be more useable. I think the device (a crap phone that foods out into a small tablet) is something no one really wants. They should have gone with a decent phone size that folds really small!

I bought one - used it for about a week and found that both screens are sort of hard to use/hold. The small front screen is too small to type and difficult to read things on it clearly so it is really just for notifications (although technically, it IS a fully functioning phone screen). When opened, the phone is hard to hold with one hand so you are constantly having to use both hands. Typing is easy with both hands, but to do much of ANYTHING on the phone, you always have to open it. I just find that it isn't very comfortable in either stance - so I'm taking mine back today. Plus, a few times I went to answer the phone and they couldn't hear me. So, not all is smooth between the small and large screens when you open/close it. Couple this with the $2,000 price tag and you have buyers remorse. My wife summed it up well by saying "If you don't absolutely love it - I would take it back".
I'm looking forward to their next iteration.

Denis88, 20 Nov 2019No mate . Its not stupid . Its just very expensive . These is ... moreWell more money than sense comes to mind. I thought Apple was bad, a tablet and phone I could buy for that. I hope this isn't a future trend I don't like the style at all, Anyhow let's see if the cracks appear jury out .

This is great; I've been thinking for years that something like this would be the perfect answer to portability vs. screen size. Now if they can only make it thinner and cheaper....

Comparing these phone with a norrmal phone is like coparing a 500k $ ferrari with an 500 year valid buss ticket . If i use your brain u will chose the buss ticket but i think everone will chose the ferrari just becouse it can acelerate 5 seconds more than ur actual car
These phone is a toy for rich people . They dont care about its specs or its difects . Its something that normal people cant affort and thats enough for them to spend 2500 $
