And people said it wouldnt sell and the Mate X would beat it :D
I wonder how many people have bought for showing off or/and because they didnt really know what they were buying. I'd say 75%
That's what called as "skimming price model" in business, Samsung has captured it to the core.
This will soon be surpassed by Huawei who have already sold 10 units

I am 46, I am typing this in my Fold ,which I find an extremely useful device. As part of my job, I travel a lot and this is a fantastic device to work on the go, read my books on, watch movies and listen to music while on the airplane (with the Galaxy buds that were included in the box), take great pictures when I am walking around to blow off steam after work in a foreign city etc. And I get 2 full days of battery with this type of use, without taking much space in my pocket/backpack/luggage - you pick! The Fold has replaced not only my previous phone but also my kindle and tablet. Hell, I now use my laptop only when I have to use SAP!
I can appreciate that this is a niche and very expensive device, but to claim that this is bought only by 20 year-olds who just want to show off, is just thoughtless (to put it mildly!)
DrakeX, 13 Dec 2019You're thinking negatively. If you buy Galaxy Fold on contract, its as affordable as buying a ... moreWhy do you think people can afford to buy a low-end phone each month (let's say 200€)? I have a steady job and I live in a foreign country and I can't afford to spend 200€ on a new device/gadget each month.
Then again, all my money goes to other.. pleasures of life.
But, normal people with normal jobs don't want to spend 200€ each month on new devices. This I am certain with.
define sold..under contract with 0 upfront? under discount/offers/coupons/competitions/gifts/promotions?
all actually paid 2k to get it? there is a difference paying all upfront and just pay 50/m for your contract which you already had and you are just eligible to get new phone

But if the price was lower , they would sell 3 or 4 times more than that

If you buy Galaxy Fold on contract, its as affordable as buying a low-end phone every month so it doesn't seem all that expensive. Also, not all buyers have the same intention of being boastful. Some just wanna feel what its like to use a foldable tablet as their daily driver.
How do you know this device is prone to fail? Its only been released a couple of months now. There's also warranty to cover certain legitimate errors.

Wow, didn't expect there would be a million Galaxy Fold units. I thought there would've been 1/10 of that. Goes to show people are willing to buy innovative phones at the expense of cost.
