That's awesome! I think this would be more at home in the workplace since it's small and can be carried in the pocket more easily. I'd certainly consider buying it if its performance is good.
I like that you try, Samsung. And you have been much better at it than Nokia was, when they were dominating the market. They were holding back innovations. Instead trying every strange design they could think of, that in no way improved the handling.
You have been trying to innovate, trying to listen to new trends.
But you have been holding back the Compact segment. Yours and some others products, have made the Mini/compact segment seem like a overpriced underperforming segment, that only has the name in common with flagship devices. Sony however got it right. But they couldnt single handedly change the idea of the general public, especially not when you kept doing your minis the way you did.
I also think that for some of us out there, hardware keys, in different designs, would be much welcomed. Why did you drop that segment? Sure Blackberry fell out of fashion, but I dont think that, that should have been the complete death of that segment.
Ok, so you have started to do mainstream flip phones, that's nice.
But why do you insist, on either making the outer display full size, thus not giving the device any pratical benefits over other touch devices?
Or, you skip the outer display altogether, why?
The outer display, should work much like smartwatches, with notification, music playback control, and so on. Some quick commands. Plus possibly some toggeling of some settings.
Sure people like big displays. But in this formfactor you have to hold back some, or the device will be way too big.
This device would most likely not be a huge success in europe, but I still wish it was in stores here, so that I could rest my eyes on something a bit different from all the classic all-touch slabs. I do like seeing your Gear S in stores, it stands out.
best design, model & performance in the world. it not more than 400 dollars for everyone
LG also has the LG Vine but it is eh, less specs. Still Flip Phone idea is great I dig it OH YEAAHHHHH!!! DIG-IT!!

Why such a nice phones always aren't available in Europe? I would buy it! And btw - this one is way better than Note5.
