Note 5 bought in October '17 for $330 also still works great, though the battery is mediocre.
Why buy new?
With 24 monthly installments + monthly subscription for calls and data... 70 eur fold+ 20 eur subscription. 90 eur per month. With this here maybe 7% of nation can buy it.

Meanwhile those of us with some patience and/or a more limited budget, can get them on ebay a year or 2 later in great condition at great prices.
When companies charge these ridiculous prices and people gobble it up, it doesn't give companies incentives to make their new products cheaper.
that's their marketing gimmicks ,,, there's nothing new here ,,, they are known for this , isn't. who else has seen people using this grab ? be honest now.
The Fold 2 will wreak havoc on the mobile market next year if the implied sub-1000 buck price is real. Bye bye candy bar phone, hello flip phone 2.0.
0.5m Youtubers bought to review

it shows people are willing to try technology which is something different and this seems like a box office hit for samsung..! keep it up..! could be the next note of the generation
Wow. That's a Huge achievement, especially since it's such a super niche product. Considering its the best folding phone right now, it definitely deserves this feat.
Bought on credit/subsidy or provided by the workplace.
Speaking of which, what kind of workplace would buy their employees phones like this?
