When we thought $1,000 was a lot now we’ve got $2,000 dollar phones by Samsung wow what a joke Front display is not a full display like the s10 more like worth $4,000

Samsung is tricky enough to put on a butterfly with its symmetric middle area being black, kind of hiding the otherwise notable crease.

these are the mistakes you get when a channel that has no business doing tech reviews does them so they can capitalize on views.

Who would not want a tablet? LOL Everyone wants one. Its the same logic as laptop. If laptop can double up as home pc (for those that do not need extreme graphics and cpu) and mobility. If you were given a choice of a smartphone or a smartphone/tablet why settle for only smartphone when you can have it all? Those naysayers that kept up with the oft repeated lines like WHY? Now are all shutting up and suddenly have a case of Amnesia. Instead of asking WHY? They should have the ask the pertinent question WHY Settle for Less when you can have it all? Those critics of foldable phones have all TURN 360 degrees and TOUTING this is the FUTURE.

This was a terrible video. Weird intonation, incorrect and incomplete information, no actually useful take on the device, forced “humor”.. Clearly not done by people that know their tech.

this beautiful and innovative phone has no problem at all. the problem is in people who are not using it properly and carefully because they are just paid unboxers or promoters, not real end users.

buyer beware. dont buy the phone. display problem after 2 days real world use. Its all over the news and facebook. spread the word. your welcome
Breaks out from a rectangular glass slab into.... A larger rectangular glass slab that folds into a rectangular glass slab!
I love the sound of the snap, anyway hope this tech will improve more, and it would be amazingly if later on it will have an Spen.

That's not the first ignorant fool do you research.

Galaxy Fold doesn't represent the true meaning of foldable phone which for what I know is this device must represent smartphone and tablet in 1. In folded mode, it's not a smartphone as what smartphones now...
Preorders sold out already

I don’t want a tablet sized phone to fold. I want my regular phone to shrink by 50% so it can fit into my jeans pocket

Idk...I'm a loyal Samsung user since the S2 - S10+ but I just really don't think I'm a fan of this phone. I think they are about 3 generations off with design and tech to make the concept worth 2 grand. Seems too clunky. Not enough phone to make me forget my S10+ and not enough tablet to make forget my iPad mini. ESPECIALLY with that noticeable crease...YUCK!

Keep it closed for a few days and see if it affects the crease.

Too big to be a phone, too small for a tablet, next

Your video's substance is lacking by trying to be funny. And it's really not funny either. After watching the unboxing channel and casey neistat's videos with a grain of salt, where they discuss they do not feel that the phone is much bulkier than other plus sized phones inside the pocket, I get the impression that you are deliberately bringing down the product for the sake of being funny (not). To each to his own. I will make my own assessment when I see it in person.

It’s too small. Samsung phones are bigger than that. If you make it that thick then make it a little bigger. I could add 10 billion $ to any company. All they have to do is to focking run it by me.

Lol...That's his conclusion? That every device in the future will be a tablet? Not that we might have devices in the future that are actually usable with one or two hands?
