    be sad for Samsung if apple paid these big reviewers guys to break, then report on it and then and send them back all at once so people get a bad feeling about the model and steer clear, as this is a big change for phones and apple don't like the idea of Samsung (or other brands) doing all the innovation.

    In the US, four journalists “broke down” Galaxy Fold, in three cases, the top layer of the display was deliberately torn off, one had something under the screen, but the smartphone continued to work. Why out of five hundred devices all “broke down” only in one country of the world, one can only guess. :D

    Nobody should put out something with that. That's a prototype and they had to have used it and had the same issues happen. That's bullshit n Samsung fucked everyone who is developing a folding phone and anyone who is a fan of tech itself.

    Thousands of people are saying "I told you so", just saying. I really don't know how anyone didn't see this coming. For the foreseeable future, extreme fragility is an inherent flaw of foldable devices, and is one too big for the average consumer to accept. I've said it before and I'll say it again: There is more evidence too support the idea that foldable phones are NOT the future than there is to support the idea that they are, and the failures of the Galaxy Fold have very little to do with that. This is a common sense thing. Plastic is not as durable as glass in a screen. End of story. The idea that so many youtubers actually seemed to think this was the future is really a case study for how objective tech reviewers actually are. And please, stop with the condescending "if you love tech then you have to jump on every impractical gimmick bandwagon" talk. We are too smart for that. I have been subbed to you for a long long time and still like you and your videos but you have gotten less and less objective and in-depth as time goes on and it's disappointing. Please stop treating tech like a religion. You CAN question the practicality of tech trends.

    Maybe it's just me, but I prefer screen protectors anyway, don't care to put them cheap phones but definitely the more expensive ones. Pay nearly $2K phone (which crazy to begin with), its probably best to utilize whatever protection your expensive purchase came with...

    The film on the S10 *IS* a screen protector. Why else would it have a cut out for the camera? Usually protective film used in packaging would just cover everything. I've been using my S10e for over a month with that film on, it really does work. It even has oleophobic qualities; water just beads, and you can literally shake all the water off the screen. Why go through all the trouble of making a temporary protective film with those qualities?

    why dont they make a smart flip phone? with a bigger display and touch screen instead of a keyboard. I just loved that you just close the phone to put it in sleep mode and the screen was better protected. Flip phones weren't bad they just needed to be updated.

  • This is Cutie Ringo Joy

    Bad design why did they made a layer film if it’s going to peel.

  • Star Berry
    Star Berry 21 day ago

    So I had an S10e (went and changed it for an S10+) and I had an actual screen protector on it. I saw what looked like a tiny screen protector on it. So I took off the screen protector and began to peel at the layer. After picking a few times, I stopped and went to sleep. The next day, I was looking up something on my phone and saw that it was a built in screen protector and I just kinda "😮😮😮😮😮😮" good thing I stopped picking at it lol. I don't want to get a screen protector but I hate them...but if it will become an issue I think it's best to get the screen protector

    I love the idea of foldable phones, but the tech probably won't be fully developed (and cheap enough for the average consumer) for another 5 or 6 years.
    Although I have to say, Huawei designing the screens to face outward is just idiotic. People put their phones in their pockets, handbags, purses and backpacks. You know what else goes in those things? COINS. KEYS. PENS. Other stuff that will *easily* scratch a screen.

  • Jason FX
    Jason FX 21 day ago

    After good concideration I conclude they should have invested into a role up film screen , tucked into a pen... which could be rolled out and created a far larger screen instead of this idea. It`s like.. we don`t need a new phone.. we need new accessories in my opinion. Just imagine.. a pen.. and you pull out an long screen out of it.. and than have the ability with software , instead of hardware to intereact with it in a completely new way.. but okay.. that`s not the case yet.. just wait untill they finally figure it out.. and than its worth the money ! Take my word for it :)

    • Jason FX
