I do not agree with the former comments.
Guess it will be a big hit.
Not everyone is only typing on a cell phone. Do not forget that most people in the world do not have data contracts!
This phone is just great for calling, with simple large keys(also better for people with less sight).
For many people who just want a phone to call, and send the occasional message it works great. And with a nice camera and screen to show pictures. Why would it not be the perfect phoen?
Just hope it gets equiped with a flash!
Sure my wife will want one.
uh, 17 Jul 2013much better if it were a landscape qwerty slide phone like nokia n97. kinda missed that design... moreWhile I still actually like the flip design too I agree. We need some fresh full quert designs. High end flagship types too.
theBatman, 17 Jul 2013and why can i trust you..See? What kind of response was that? How/Why can you trust them? That was another lousy cop out reply. One that negated what they said....AGIN. Nor do you have to trust. Nor does everyone need your trust to state what they know or feel. That's ridiculous.
theBatman, 17 Jul 2013ever since the beginning of patent wars,no one hates apple more than some samsung..that is a f... moreAnd again. You negate everything else just to twist things to call me a fanboy. Even after I give a small explanation as to why i don't like apple. Not that it was deserved or required. Not to mention it's well know half the people here despise Crapple just because of the type of company they are. Love, like, or hate Samsung.
What's your obsession with Samsung of calling people fanboys and getting huffy when someone mentions them???? In reality then I should assume what is really going on here is that you are a jealous Samsung hater. I'm supposedly the extreme fanboy, but you don't see me calling every other company copy cats for using HD capable phones after Samsung.
I think I may consider this as my secondary phone if it is available here in my country and if the price is right.
It is also easy to carry around and the hardware specs seems just fine for a phone like this.
Hope they have very good battery life like the good-old-phones
It isn't a good decision to Samsung IMO. because it confused the branding of Samsung ultra-high end phone. Like Samsung w999/w2013/b9120
rachid.maaliki, 17 Jul 2013if you hate touchscreens and want to press a button get a blackberry :)Many ppl lyk me don't lyk Blackberry OS so I hope dis concept goes 2 production sooner rather dan l8r. I actually lyk Motorola & wud luv 2 hav a RAZR clamshell with a bigger screen running Android. I hope dat happens since Motorola is now Google's bbe.
much better if it were a landscape qwerty slide phone like nokia n97. kinda missed that design.
I still prefer typing on a real keypad than on touchscreen. I get typo errors all the time like crap... that is why I dont use android for chatting.
I hate also useless touchscreens but Doro Easyphone 740 (Slide) is better than this, unfortunately it is pretty slow and use of Android software is forbidden. But this Galaxy Folder is a great step ahead.
If It Has Alpha-numeric keypad also then How can you play Horizontal Type of Games Like MW OR RR3?????? Its just Shit about Samsung Mobiles.........
theBatman, 17 Jul 2013and why can i trust you..I never said trust me. I'm saying that I hate Apple and I'm not a Samsung fan. I'm a Sony fan.
-DaMasta, 17 Jul 2013I hate Apple. And I'm not a Samsung fan...and why can i trust you..
if you hate touchscreens and want to press a button get a blackberry :)
brynn, 17 Jul 2013100% fully agree.. So folk are saying about this being silly well I am bored to the back te... moreLots of people are wanting these types of smartfone its just often they are poor spec or for Japan. Lets hope this does go worldwide and sets a trend that we do want some variation in smartfone styles.
Well count me in i love a different formfactor with real tactile buttons..Totally bored with todays full touchscreen tapping at ascreen..
I love ending a call with a good solid press of a button..I love typing with real buttons you just slide your thumbs around and press,,with a touchscreen you have to lift your thumb off the screen(except for swipe) and tap and that irritates me..Bring this phone to Europe with pretty decent spec and will buy one.
We need more diversity and design ,things go round in circles these phones will come back eventually..Count me in i love clamshells sliders or scissor smarphones with real buttons..
Here is a scissor phone(non smartfone).
