    As it turned out, the real problem was Samsung's poor manual design and lack of specification that it wasn't a screen protector after all.

    I love in the comments people are bragging about how well the Fold looked compared to this and now when I'm making this comment, no one realized Samsung would release it to quickly with major defects causing the phone to Break in just a few days of use cause they added there protective layer like a screen protector that can be peeled off by a toddler that collects dust and once peeled ruins the screen.

    RoxxedK 21 day ago

    The Razr V4 is probably the most practical, logical way to make a foldable phone. This is just niche and reminds me too much of a prototype stepping too far past what should be an entry level device for new tech. I could imagine something like this coming out after foldable displays are solid in the market.

  • FreethinkingSecularist

    Someone needs to make the foldable where the 9:16 ratio is in the unfolded mode. This would make the most sense considering nearly all hd content is in 9:16 or higher ratios. Please someone tell me if there is one in the works by some company. Thanks. And what are your opinions on this idea?

    Just give me the contact lenses that will pop a phone up anytime you need it. No need to charge. Your body heat transfers to energy to power the lenses.

    i already had a chances to hold the new Samsung phone and a few others and i can say Samsung phone is just better build and doesn't leave weird makes or warps on the screen on many of the others we got to hold i will say its still new so there no really problem worrying about it as of yet but Samsung is very much head of the rest.

    1. Too Big
    2. Scratches very fast
    3. The rubber on the back gets snatch
    4. You have everywhere Touchscreen
    That Foldable Phone looks good in Sci-Fi Movies, but it`s nothing for the real Life.
