    It's hard to feel any love for such a fragile phone.

    Yeah whatever.:rolleyes:

    You loved your OP2, a device many considered far too fragile to buy. Fans dodged that bullet and the company apologised for it.:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    I still think the Fold is interesting but overpriced and over rated.

    Absolutely agree with you and there is still a huge question mark over it's durability.

    Probably best to keep the thread on topic. I shouldn't have to remind the OP of that. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    But to put the record straight the fold couldn't even last a day before it failed on it's first release and the fold has failed on the 2nd release in the first day.

    The OnePlus 2 has proven to be very tough and durable. It had plenty of shortcomings and failures but durability was definitely not one of them. This is a tech forum and it would be appreciated if you did not spread misinformation.

    Overpriced? I dunno I have no idea what has gone into making the device , but there is nothing over rated about a folding screen that will turn your phone into a tablet.

    It's the future.;)

    The thing costs way more than i am prepared to pay, but that doesn't make it any less cool or the not too distant future of the industry.

    I wouldn't even use one even if I was given one for free. Samsung has no credibility with the fold after it's disastrous first launch and there's plenty of evidence to suggest that they haven't solved all of the problems with the fold. It also looks like a first generation product and that front screen is straight out embarrassing for Samsung.

    Time will tell if folding phones are the future or not but for now they definitely are not the future. At that price the uptake will be very small.

    Are there and further comments from anyone? Are folding phones the very near future?

    Or is Samsung's effort at a folding phone a little premature? Is Samsung's effort ground breaking? Or is Samsung's effort a poorly conceived overpriced fragile, overrated and visibly flawed first generation product?

    Has anyone watched the video in the first post? What do you think about the reviewers suggestion to wrap the phone in a cloth? Is a phone that needs to be wrapped in a cloth fit for purpose?

    This durability test is interesting. Samsung warns that the phone isn't dust or water resistant, this appears to be a step backwards in my opinion especially when the screen has a hardness of soggy bread. Also one touch with a sharp point and your screen is dead.

    The hinge still appears to have plenty of problems, just how does sand on top of the screen gets lodged inside the hinge? This phone really needs to be dust resistant.

    Don't take this phone to the beach or put it in your pocket or use it anywhere where there is dust or dirt which pretty much rules out using this phone outside of your office or home. The phone should be fine if you leave it permanently on your office desk assuming you keep a spotless desk. ;)

    My last 3 phones have been Samsung devices ( S8+, Note 8, Note 9 ) and my next one will most probably be a Samsung phone again. Having said that, i would never even consider the Fold. I think it's just plain hideous and hate everything about it. In all honesty, if the Fold was $500 and the Note 10+ was $2000, i would buy the Note. Just my opinion.
