  • I will say the thing that holds me back from buying any new tech (given that my 3-5 year, mid range - moderate high end stuff still works) is app aren't as obviously optimized as they could be. I use F-Droid equivalents for most things as i get the absolute best bare bones experience I can find.

  • 5:20 as a galaxy zfold 2 user, you would be able to upload a story if you close your phone. When it is opened, youtube recognizes your phone as a tablet, but if you close it, it recognizes as a phone. Pretty insane right lol

  • I don't understand why there's a camera on the inside at all when you can just turn the phone around if you need to selfie or conference. I've probably used my self facing camera a total of 3 times in the past 10 years.

  • That would drive me nuts about the screen protector, but it sounds like they are making big leaps in improvements for whatever ridiculous niche market they are trying to sell this phone to lolll. They'll get something decent going then there'll be a slight spike in popularity and another company will reverse engineer it and whip out something twice the quality and just a few hundred dollars more lol.

  • Why call it a Z Fold, when it folds in half like a V? I was just thinking that if it did fold like a Z, with 2 separate bends that divide the screen into 3, then the top third (or bottom third) of the screen could then also serve as the exterior display while the device is folded shut. Then you don't have this extra screen that only gets used part of the time. But would a Z fold be too complicated for consumers to like?

  • A couple of points. I am that person that used to carry a cellphone and a 7 or 8 inch tablet. That was before I bought my Fold 1 and I love it. The version that I have is not 1.0 but it is really version 1.5, 6, 7, 8 or 9. The version depends on how many problems Samsung fixed. Yes, they released it to reviewers and it had a lot of flaws. However, Samsung fixed just about every problem. They sealed the hinge and added "brush" technology, and, you can't peal the screen off anymore. Yes, the outer screen on Fold 1 is smaller than the one on Fold 2 but it is still narrow and that means that I would still struggle typing on it, not really an upgrade. My big problem with the outer screen is the width not the length. Yes the inner screen on Fold 1 has a notch but you can toggle it it off. You loose a tiny bit of screen and you get a slightly larger bezel but the continuity is well worth it. No more notch distraction. These are just some of the things that keep Fold 1 a premium device. I sincerely hope that Fold 2 and 3 do spectacularly well, because I plan to buy Fold 4. As far as a kick stand goes, I carry around a plastic folding stand that barely weighs 2 ounces. It will fit in the pocket of the tightest skinny jeans. Lol It adds a different dynamic to the device because you are not lying it down flat. A case for Fold 2, hmm. The larger outer screen is going to make that hard to pull off. I suspect that you will end up with something so big and bulky that the size will compare to the Surface Duo. I paid about $1,400 dollars for it because a special promotion that Samsung/AT&T had at the start of the pandemic. Fold 2 is selling for the full $2k with half of the memory. To me that is not an upgrade.

  • One of the dumbest things I've ever done is get a galaxy s10+ two for 1500$... 750 each for a fucking phone. And honestly it better last because I hate that I did that. All I do is go on BGworld, navigate, email, text and call. That's all a damn phone does and each year they make them 10% faster like it's going to make a fucking difference in your daily life. Did get an iphone se for 240$ for my wife...that was a good buy. That's around how much a phone should cost. 200-400$.

I got one and the camera's are great and everything on it works just FANTASTIC.. dude you really gave a bs review and I have it and your full of it on your review and the speakers are great also and it holds its charge for a entire day!! BAD REVIEW from you and its not way wider than the original your lying about that also..your 1.5 million subs should know you must give alot of bs reviews!! BS DUDE. ive been using it for 3 weeks and about the screen protecter its just fine just dont use a pointer..your a bad reviewer apple guy!!
