You have a buyer in me. I wouldn't even think twice.
If they bring out a 4G flip as the next one to this one and introduce into UK I will be first in line (like those people who wait for hours for the new iPhone) I have wanted an Android 4G phone for ages but with a decent memory and camera and I love Samsung products.
Hopefully Samsung will release the W2016 in Europe (and US) hence not only the Asian markets. Many People appear to be thinking that flip phones (clamshell, Folders) are "mega out", something for "old People" or "Retro" but the reality and every day life Shows ... flipphones are very robust und have good usability in everyday life and there are so many situations where touch-only handling simple is inpractical. Also, flipphones often have hetter Sound Quality in the "ear Piece" since there's more room in the upper part of the housing. So please all you journalists, Marketing experts, vendors .... please convince Producers that in EU and other parts of the world, there is a market for flip phones!
070, 21 Nov 20154 years ago, all flagships were 4" big. It's perfectly fine size to use...I think 4.7" is the sweet spot for Android phones. 4.0 is kind of small for me now. I got use to bigger screens
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2015Useless for anything other than calls and texts.Not even for texting. The screen is too small to use the touch screen and texting with numbers is a pain. It does look kind of cool though.
Yes, will definitely get one. I only use my phone for calls, text and productive apps. and I LOVE the flip phones. This is perfect!
Curved glass at the back and downward curved glass at the front. Cool. I would buy one back in the old era. This flip phone is impractical for modern usage like watching video and playing touchscreen games(i.e car games).
Smacka, 18 Nov 2015Come on Samsung release this high end flip phone to all world markets.
Make no mistake there ... more1) It's NOT a high-end phone
The specs just point out to an Upper Mid-range phone with the CPU as its edge
2) Like all other Samsung or LG Products, this might not see a global entry. Most likely, they will release it first in Korea and if the demand is higher or sales are better, they will release it in the international markets
3) You will have to wait a few more months as this won't be released immediately
I think this product can have a serious demand. Not all people want the candybar touchscreen kind of setup, even today.
Come on Samsung release this high end flip phone to all world markets.
Make no mistake there would be very big demand for a high end product of this type.
Not everybody wants a traditional touch screen smartphone as we as we know them.
Take my wife for starters, as her much loved Motorola V9 Maxx, which is getting long in the tooth and ready to kark it. With no prospect of a suitable high end replacement available here in Australia, she's making life difficult for everyone including the family dog. So come on all phone makers, it's time to avail a high end flip smart phone to all markets, and maybe save a marriage or two.
Razor thin looking motorola flip phones were cool. This is just a brick.
MdN8, 18 Nov 2015Same here. A flip phone with a good camera, good battery, wi-fi and a browser like Opera Mini ... morehaha I liked the Razr, I also got a chance to use very shortly a Windows phone flip phone... loved to use Yahoo IM on that bad boy. The LG Arena was a great none smart phone but yeah I would hop on the flip phone bandwagon if they can make one with great features like email IM music solid camera and good enough processing power without having to be a smart phone.. No i dont want to share my location!! lol
