    Why not make two separate,glass screens that come together when you open it?? Then make the inner bezel as thin as possible, so that when you unfold it,you can barely notice the line down the middle??

    Honestly though... Why? It feels gimmicky. Does it folding just completely make your user experience way better? I don’t see how. What’s next Smell-O-Vision? Okay not gonna lie I’d rather have that than a folding phone. I was a teenager in the 00’s and went through flip phones like gum. Ooohhh, Ahhhh. Lol. I’d rather have something solid, sturdy & durable. Maybe one day they can perfect this sort of technology but why come out with it before it’s really ready? There are a lot features I’d love my smartphone to have. The ability to fold doesn’t make my list. 😉

    I wanted one but I do excavation. My phones go through literal hell. I buy the best when I do buy a new one so they last but this scares me. If it can't make it a couple of days with normal people it won't make it a couple of hours with me on the jobsite. I do love Samsung though. Currently have a note 8 which is going on 3 years with not a single issue. Granted even though my job is hell on my phones I do take care of it the best I can but at this point after this video I think ill be waiting the couple more months for the note 10 and grabbing one of those. Thanks for the heads up and keep reviewing man.

    When apple has a problem people say it is Apple's Fault, but when samsung has a problem everyone says it is the user's fault or it is because it is a first gen product,well that just proves how arogant and stupid u android fanboys are

      @maldita peppas u are an android fanboy u had no valid arguments at all whereas I provided perfectly apt answers. Ya call me an isheep I don't care but just know this android fanboys like u will always be the dumber ones

      @Kratos omg you are a dumb ass 💀 i never said apple never innovates i said apple isnt innovating anymore wtf 🤣
      samsung is the old apple with innovations not the new one that scams for money lmao
      all android users know about tech
      all apple users know little to nothing about tech
      and even if they do they only like apple because it brings then nostalgia an they cant learn to accept that androids are far superior

    • Kratos
      Kratos Month ago

      @maldita peppas ok if apple didn't innovate I'll give you a list of innovations by apple.
      First phone with "3D" Face ID. iPhone X
      First phone with "capacitive fingerprint sensor" iPhone 5s
      First proper gestures for navigation. iPhone X
      First 120hz display on a mobile display "iPad pro "
      First phone with an irremovable back. OG iPhone
      First phone with a glass back
      iPhone 4
      First consumer phone to use premium materials and not plastic. iPhone 4
      First multitouch screen phone.
      OG iPhone.
      First "consumer " desktop with a mouse. Apple iMac 1998 version
      First phone to have a notch but essential phone due to its earlier release date for that title whereas apple had it in store for 2 years because iPhone x was supposed to celebrate the 10 year anniversary.
      Fuck can't innovate
      and first of all no one says apple is perfect or Android is perfect it's just both are good and each have their flaws. And the reason for Android fanboys to hate on apple is I don't know maybe because they don't have brains

    • maldita peppas
      maldita peppas Month ago

      @Kratos nope the note 7 was the devices fault dont put words in my mouth and then argue against it lol
      but apple users always say apple is perfect so when their keyboards dont work then everybody goes and recks them when keayboarss dont work on android nobody really cares lol because android fanboys never say that android is perfect lmao
      i do agree that it was samsungs fault for not puting a warning and making it obvious
      still doesnt bring down the facts that samsung is innovating lol

      if samsung wanted to money grab they wouldnt include bluetooth heaphones nor fast charger they wouldn't give out free youtube premium and they would put ads all over their os like huawie and Xiaomi

    For the first generation buyers the insurence criteria of user error should be limited for the folding screen. because why would I be a tester for a product that is not complete and pay this huge price?? Is ıt just to have this tech firstly? I do not think so! And I am wondering what does this new folding phones are adding up to our daily life? What is the advantage of it? I see that folding screen has no advantage but disadvantages for the user. The folding screen is just the show off of the brand.

    I'm going to take a guess at to why these phones are being damaged (mainly the screen protectors)
    With the adhesive, is it possible it is too strong that by pulling it up, it moves something out of place inside of the phone itself or even snaps or damages and cables or delicate parts inside it?
    Also with the 'bumps' on the others, perhaps because of the way it folds open and shut, maybe it caught something small that you wouldn't assume, then by opening the phone, it lodges said item into the phone itself through a design flaw?
    (for example during the folding process, perhaps something opens or is exposed long enough for a foreign item to accidentally get pushed inside, move/disturb the internal parts and cause the damage.)
    Then again I have 0 experience with building phones, so who knows (though I would LOVE to design and build my own mobile phone, that'd be epic!)
