Anonymous, 25 Feb 2019Comparison of Huawei Mate X and Samsung Fold. Huawei Mate X: Folding-out. Creates soft crease... moreExactly. More people need to be more like you and actually do some research before forming such strong opinions. smh
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.
No thanks. Having screen critically exposed at the hinge is a lot stupider than even curved edges.

The basic premise of a foldable device with OLED screen is this: The OLED screen is so flexible that you can bend it and role it, and when it is fully open it can return to its original unblemished state.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has failed to deliver on that premise. The fact remains that the OLED screen is not creasable in the sense that the OLED screen can't return to its original unblemished state once it is creased. The Samsung designers have failed to understand this basic limitation of OLED.
What a failure on the part of Samsung! Considering that Samsung is the principle flag-bearer of OLED display technology. Considering that the talk about a foldable device started as early as 2014, and it was followed up with years of resources and engineering effort. Considering the prestige Samsung has attached to such a high profile project. This is not just another failure, it is a failure on a "spectacular" scale!
2 things that Samsung missed that would've made this phone perfect.
1. The S-Pen!!
2. The ability to fold halfway and use it as a laptop with half of the screen as keyboard a la Nokia's communicator..
This 2 features will add so much to the productivity of this device.. Oh well Samsung probably save it for the next iteration
NiGhTDeViL, 24 Feb 2019Samsung Note 9 is the best....It will be amazing if there is a foldable note this year.

Anonymous, 24 Feb 2019Disappointed by the front small screen. Such huge bezels 😞. They could have made i... moreFront screen is for one-hand operation. If it is too big, need to use 2 hands, but 2-hand operation is for the 7.3" screen.
There is a fundamental difference in design between Huawei Mate X and Samsung Fold.
When Huawei Mate X is fully open, you face an unblemished AMOLED screen, just like you would with any other tablet.
When Samsung Fold is fully open, you face a damaged AMOLED screen with a very visible hard-crease line in the middle, something you never have to face until now.
Run that Samsung Galaxy Fold silent video using slow-motion (0.25 of full speed), at around 0:51 you will see a very clear hard crease line in the middle. Do you really want to use a 7.3" tablet with a damaged AMOLED screen (with a visible hard-crease line in the middle)?

Jimbob, 24 Feb 2019Looks outdatedIt's funny how this is the next gen technology, and you say that it looks outdated.
It looks weird and thicc, and the front panel has never seen before fat bezels. I mean, not even all old gen phones had so fat bezels.
Remember when comparing with competitors that most fold with the screen on the outside.
BUT as "flexible" with all known materials are incompatible with "hard", this means that ANY flexible display will be prone to scratches...
So the approach of Moto and Samsung on folding it in on itself and thus protecting the display will give a device not super sensitive to a scratched screen....
Folding it on the outside is a much simpler solution, with a less sharp bend. BUT we should rememmber that it comes at a price.
PERHAPS they can offer (relatively) cheap protective also flexible films, that could take the major parts of the scratches, that the user could replace easily and frequently, e.g. once a month.
Huawei instead of this fat phonebook thx.
I am so disappointed of this, now i waited? Is it 4 years for this to come OMG Samsung, try again... this must be a wrong video here.
I really understand why Sammys mobile department is sinking. A shame... But well deserved Applesung.
