    With a screen that breaks really easy, it seems.
    Can't say I'm really surprised. When I heard about the phone, I figured something like this was going to happen. Wonder how scratch resistant the plastic is?

    I look forward to flexible, thin touchscreens, which this is a precursor to. I mean, imagine iPads that are nearly paper thin and you can store anywhere.

    But holy shit what a bungled product. $2,000 and it breaks within 2 days? We're probably still another 5+ years from this being a viable technology.

    Yeah, I haven't seen anything to suggest these are anything other than cool tech demos right now.

    It's not even as thin as it would need to be to make this technology attractive. Something went really wrong in greenlighting this.

    I can admire the desire to push handheld mobile technology, but the implementation is just... seriously, whomever was in QC is fired, even if they're not truly at fault. I will continue to be pleased with my Samsung J3 Luna Pro (as if I could afford a Galaxy Fold phone anyway).

    I'd still take my chances with a folding (or exploding) Samsung over an iPhone. :bailey:
