Be sure, once its launched it will fly off the shelf's like fried fritters. This is the next big thing in Mobile Technology, you think the penny pinchers are going to buy it, nooooo its the millions of WE GOT THE DOUGH people that are waiting.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2019"The film was peeled off on purpose by the reviewers. It didn't come off by itself."
But ev... moreNo, one reviewer (Joanna Stern) stated that the film started to peel of in the corner over a short period of time. That particular user did NOT peel off the film! Also only 2 reviewers o/t 4 broken did actually peel of the film. The other break-ins had nothing to do with that film at all.
Shows some o/t flaws with this device. And as Marques stated on his clip. Those that broke down without the film peeling are the ones to worry about. In this particular case 40 to 50% failure rate is a disaster.
This thing is DOA . Now since the delay. Several videos are out showing just how big a piece of junk this thing is.
Samsung are gonna have to reduce the price of this massively now for anyone to consider buying.

it they were 'test' units then no-one would care.

To think that Samsung would deliberately use reviewers as a beta-tester group would be absurd.

But ev... moreFactory-installed screen protectors on Sony's mirrorless cameras, as recent as A7II and A7IIR, have delamination problems over time. Did anyone make a big hooha and demand Sony to change the protector for free?
Fayth, 24 Apr 2019and some people may open the Fold from the bottom half, and that strong magnet still stick the... moreExactly, the magnets can increase the risk of an uneven open.
Another thing MIGHT be how stiff the three double-hinges are as they do not seem coupled. I do hear some talk about 'flimsy'. So what forces are applied to the display foil when the two halves are 'twisted' relative to each other in say a pocket?
I guess the strong magnets is exactly in an attempt to avoid that, but it might not be enough (just look at how a wallet get twisted over time in a pocket).
So closed they should be very strong and while opening weak... not a simple task to find the ideal compromise.
OMG why are people so affected with the recall of "REVIEW" units. These are not retail units people. The galaxy is not yet officially released. I am always checking reviews on youtube and atleast I only found around 10 - 20 having these units. There is no massive recall so relax people and reserve your rants.
Probably years from now this technology will be a normality and nobody will care who was the first one or how many challenges companies needed to surpass in creating this. Everybody will take it for granted and just move on to the next big thing.

I don't know why people are mocking samsung, the fold was sent to reviewers like a test unit before market release, some problems apperead, so samsung is recalling the units to look for the issues and resolve them.
And for dumb people who thinks this is the same failure as note 7, you are wrong. First because no risk at life by exploding batteries, and not market released yet.
Lets see how durable will be the mate x then.(With his out folding)
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2019Apple did it first with Iphone 6 Plus.
First bendable phone.
HAHAHHAHAHAAwee? to what extent iphone 6s can bend? if you do it on purpose? hahaha LOL..
Just accept it. samsung always bashing apple in their commercials. but look at them now? releasing another half baked so called innovation and failed. LOL.
