  • Published: 25 April 2019
  • Samsung's Galaxy Fold is being recalled. I think they rushed this phone because of consumer and market pressure. Hope they fix it.

    Consumer pressure sucks but I really think Samsung rushed this launch. Do you think they should have waited?

      I'm happy with my $75 Motorola smartphone. I just use it for phone calls, taking photos for my girlfriend that lives in Romania, and watching YouTube. Don't need something fancy or expensive.

      Comparing a foldable phone to a wireless charging pad from Apple is just plain stupid.

                          I mean, is like shinting on the dance floor of a party when people are about to go to dance, is a shitty move, people would forget that, because is the popular guy Sammy, but kind of like ruin the party for other people (other companies making foldable devices), we know Sammy products would sell anyway, but this mistake would make things difficult for other companies because people don't trust that much the foldable idea anymore (and.. there weren't that many people that were happy with the idea in the first place).

                          At least this would save some of the first consumer of the foldable market, early adopters would suffer anyway...

                            nah foldable phones in my opinion don't solve a problem. i rather have a phone that I can dock everywhere (tablet, monitor etc) than a wannabe 2 in 1 phone tablet thing

                                This compared to Marquess' video has so much more brain. TBH i was kind of offensed when reviewers literally just read articles (that requires no hard work for research) out loud and have a video

                                    I remember a few years ago, before smartwatches came to the consumer, Google or otherwise, everyone was talking about something called iWatch. Was it a TV, was it a Watch, no one new. The rumours were so many that Google rushed to make an OS for a Watch, Samsung made one too. I even think they were the first ones to launch even before Google has their OS ready. All to beat Apple.

                                    Guess what. Apple waited until they thought they had the right thing.

                                    This is the point. Innovation that does not care for the user, its not really innovation. Its a gimmick.

                                    But is seams that again we are in the gimmick era. Kind of back do 2000-2007.

                                              Prolly should've studied the stolen Nokia information better. In case you're wondering, no, i'm not talking about the Nokia battery and charger design they blatantly stole, i'm talking about the flexible screen technology which Nokia not only developed, but also had a working phone ages ago to present to the masses. IF Nokia, deemed it a failure because of screen technology back then, i'm pretty sure the thieves over at Samsung aren't going to manage any better.
                                              The phone demonstrator is online for all to see, you can Google it. If you don't know about the Samsung controversy regarding the comment. And Nokia's patents were stolen at some point, fact made evident by the presence of many tech elements in Samsung phones at their early stages. At the very least, Nokia expended a lot of time and money in making proper batteries that didn't explode with your face. You know, welded modules with screwed (jeweler's sized screws) on glass reinforced plastic protection caps (how you really know if you have a fake or real Nokia battery).

                                                                                        Is it just me thinking that these foldable phones make zero sense? Everyone is saying that tablets are losing popularity over the years, os they decided to make a foldable phone that is neither a good tablet, nor a good phone (since it is so thick when folded). Also, the prices are so ridiculous that for the same price range you can actually buy a nice phone AND tablet.

Who cares if they get made fun of for integrating tech years after idiots like Scamsung messes it up?? It’s better to work properly than to just be the first one...

Of course it's going to warp, crease, scratch or distort. Samsung didn't help themselves with other issues on top but any other flexible phone will suffer these common issues. Huawei's screen is on the outside so chances are they'll suffer even worse.
