    For $1,980 plus tax, I'd rather put that towards building a 4K gaming PC with a 2080 Ti.

    The more I hear about it the less interested I am. Huawei’s option is more appealing and useful when the phone is folded. Even the LG dual screen phone seems more functional than this.

    I don't know how GSMarena came up with the 2K pricing because on the internet I found in several sites a "$3,088" pricetag. Time will tell. In any case, that amount of money for a plastic screen display? lol I prefer to buy a killer TV, an Xbox, and keep the spare money for food deliveries. Better to wait for some generations of this segment until you jump on the foldable wagon.

      I'm still trying to understand the $3,088. Is that in Korean currency??? No way that's U.S. dollars.

    You forgot another problem. One screen went off all by itself without removing any thing. These phones are completely fragile and unreliable. Who is stupid enough to throw two grands on a non-trust worthy device

    If price was no issue, and popularity was,
    Galaxy Fold would get much more attention than the iPhone 11s

    Guys, both the fold and the mate x have their shortcomings. Samsung almost had a repeat of the note 7 fiasco and huawei needs to work on their build quality and app continuity. Not to mention they cost an arm and a leg(+ a kidney😁). All in all both are 1st gen devices in their category and only by the 2nd-3rd gen will they can be proper daily drivers or even proper. Better wait and see for the next 2-3 years where the tech will lead.

      @PSYCHO yes, me too. If the reviews are good, I'll probably buy the Samsung Fold next year because this year it's beyond my budget.

      I'm excited for long-term reviews of the Galaxy Fold and Mate X.

      Foldable devices is a product category that I'm very excited to see succeed.

    I think foldable display should be placed outside of the phone.
    It allows the display lesser keen hinge angle and no need outside sub display.

    I hope in soon future Samsung make a laptop have the same technology . Means : laptop with one screen can fold it like this smart phone . This will make a revolution in laptop industry and too many people will back to depend in laptop in his daily duties .

    Good bye samsung my old note still work till you learn to make devides with right display spect ratio for real men's hands and not tiny small but long display for childrens hands ...
    25 to 8 or 30 to 6 ... will bring huge dimensions but useless if you need to browse or calculate on the go.

    The whole reason to have a Fold would be to have a tiny , thin phone with low footprint, that can blow up into a huge screen. Make it smaller, thinner , more compact, with ability to become large, and youll have your phone. Think old Motorola razer thin flip phone, to Note10+ or maybe slightly bigger. Thats when the phone would make sense.

    Unless it's made of gold, no phone is worth $2k. In three years, you'll be able to find them on eBay for $300. But I appreciate that there are new ideas being developed in the smartphone world.

  • robac000

    Samsung made a foldable phone, Apple just anounced that they have always on display on Apple watch and 3 cameras on 1000$ phone. Isn't it ironic?

      @Yolo Piop 2 yeah if I could get a maxed out note 11 for like tops 800 I'd go for it.

    • Yolo Piop 2

      Essumer agreed. I’m hoping the note 11 will be cheaper because I think the note 10 prices are outrageously high

    Hate it! I can still see the crease in the middle. How nasty. If I'm going to pay $2000, I want it perfect in every way and I want the battery to last 7 days!

  • UnBiased Consumer

    When iPhones were $1k everyone complained, but at $20/month u don’t even think about it. Nobody’s paying 2k upfront for this. 59/month is way better than 2k upfront. People want new tech but complain about money smh da hell u want? Pick your poison. I’ll be picking this up this year, iPhone 11 pro is underwhelming.

    All you're buying is the folding for 2k. The note 10 is slightly smaller, and other phones are one-handed and way cheaper

    With that insane price of a folded phone I can buy a Note 10+, S10+ & Tab S6 with a telco contract each and still have some money left to buy the accessories for each device as well!

    If only the total price amount of the folded phone can be folded into 2 also then I will buy!
