    This is a dumb gimmick that will never take off and the few people who will get this will mostly use it in closed position in which this phone is both ugly and thick with huge ass bezels around the screen

    I don't even Samsung but they promoted tablets so i give it a huge respect. The only thing i ask for is to give every country Snapdragon instead of exinos, or at least Russia.

    The paid fake audience members are so funny ........... Not sure who was in charge of cheering up the audience for applause and excitement ... but clearly they didn't get the same speech script as the boring, monotonous presenter ....... :D
    So funny how the (fake) audience cheers up when there is no need ... :D .... and the guy always expects the people to be crazy excited when he pauses ... weeeellllll ..... i think that was already a good feedback to know how poor the need for this product was !!
    Except for Gmaps, watching movies (i have a great computer with a 17" screen for that ... outside it feels good to disconnect on my commute or when with friends !!) and playing games (greeeaaaaatttttttt more time alone in front of the screen ......... what a dream life !! [sarcastic tone]) ... what other purpose this GalaxyFold has? Getting $2,000 from geeks? ok!
    Good luck trying to sell it !! :D :D :D
