  1. Did these guys seriously have a sit down for almost 25 min and, talk about a phone like its actually important, sad state the world is in, im sure there are far more pressing issues.

  2. @Lew later , I LOVE SAMSUNG TV’s…but the love affair stops there. You’ve never unboxed a Samsung dishwasher, refrigerator or washing machine on Unbox Therapy, maybe you have those appliances at home though i don’t know. What I can tell you, however, as guy with contractor accounts at both Lowe’s and Home Depot….you stay AWAY from ANY Samsung branded item that contains moving parts! The home center reps have shown me numerous returned Samsung appliances where the the moving parts failed due to OVER-engineering. Samsung has a habit of over-complicating tough engineering problems (or fixing things that aren’t broken) and consumers ALWAYS pay the price when a company does that.

    When I saw this phone announced I knew immediately that they had done it again. The folding mechanism just looked over complicated from the get-go…it didn’t look right, it felt…..dangerous. I think the additional screen layer is a dubious addition to the problem as well. What happened to the layer that caused those other reviewers to pull it off? Did it bubble up or peel up in a corner like factory applied screen protectors tend to do ? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a piece of tech and ignored the screen protector until bubbles appears or a corner got lint under it and it started to remove itself from the screen. What about those gaps in the hinge that make dust ingress so easy that the Verge had that bump under the screen in their unit ?

    The waway unit looks sturdier but, like you’ve said…we won’t know till you touch it. I’d be willing to bet it’s a helluva lot less over-engineered than the Samsung and you’ll find pretty novel solutions to the hinge issue that will make you go “that was simple. Why didn’t Samsung just do that “?

  3. There's a big difference between folding a phone 200,000 times in a dust free controlled environment,.. and folding the same phone 200,000 times at the sandy, wet and unpredictable beach party where you are showing off your brand new $2000.00 phone.
