These fold phones will progress. These can potentially target Apple's heavily dominated tablet market and so on. People don't understand why these companies make certain devices and price them beyond most people's reach...

They are far worse than the screen itself. Screens are capable to withstand against scratches from anything with hardness below level 6. Screen covers are not capable to withstand even level 4. They also won't protect you from cracks, as crack usually coming from edges.

But SAMSUNG is very clever and hide the wrinkle during the ... moreThe "wrinkle" created by SamsungFold is different from the "wrinkle" created by HuaweiMateX. The former is a well-defined "hard" wrinkle created by a hard-crease, while the latter is soft wrinkle created by a soft-crease. The soft wrinkle is recoverable while the hard wrinkle is unrecoverable.

When HuaweiMateX folds out, it creates a soft-crease which is fully recoverable when HuaweiMateX folds back, without leaving a hard-crease line(s).
When SamsungFold folds in, it creates a hard-crease with a permanent hard-crease line which is unrecoverable.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2019Because they try to fit it in a slim body.This i can think to thx, but still a bad match. But again i have power in my mate 20 x for nearly 2½ day and i use it a lot.
So still i think the X will have power enough for a least a day... And thats still okay in my opinion.

Comparison of Huawei Mate X and Samsung Fold.
Huawei Mate X: Folding-out. Creates soft crease(s), fully recoverable, and without hard-crease line(s).
Samsung Fold: Folding-in. Creates hard crease(s), with visible and unrecoverable hard-crease line(s).
A close-up look at Huawei Mate X by a German reporter:
Huawei Mate X in action in close-up. The commentary offered by the reviewer is spot-on:
Promotional videos and pictures from Samsung have tried to hide the center crease line(s). But take a look at Samsung Fold from the following video:
Play this video with slow-motion (0.25 of full speed), at around 0:51 you will see a very clear hard crease line in the middle.
Who thinks foldable phones are going share same faith as 3D TVs?
3D TVs were such a buzz but never caught up with the general public. They seem exciting to techies but I don't think general public is going to find the concept reliable.
I have been showing pics of this phone to some of my friends who are less interested in tech (for some weird reason they all use iPhones) they say it's too much.
Foldable smartphones could be the 3D of TVs.

HUAWEI is much more honest. They don't use the tricks to hide it.
