Based on last week’s poll most people are not interested in a foldable clamshell phone like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip – it’s too expensive, nearly half of the voters think so. And that’s even though the Z Flip is significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Fold (it is expected to cost €1,400, down from the hair-raising price of €2,020 for the Fold).
Even though clamshells won a poll as the best foldable form factor, there’s a large contingent of voters who want a larger foldable like the Galaxy Fold, not a small one like the Z Flip. The lack of 5G connectivity or Snapdragon 865 chipset was a relatively minor concern all things considered.
Of those that do want a Galaxy Z Flip, most will only part with their money after reading reviews. And a significant fraction of those will wait for long-term reviews. Some issues with the Galaxy Fold were immediately obvious, but it took months to find all problems.
The good news is that while bleeding-edge technology starts off expensive, it comes down in price pretty quickly. And if that proves to be the major hurdle to the path of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’s success, it will be resolved in a few years.
too expensive for the sake Of nostalgia. I almost made A bad investment, but luckily Came to my senses and CANCELLED the order which amounted to over 3000 dollars for two of Them. Got suckered by the Hype and it could have cost Me in...
Not as beautiful as the razr (from the render). Okay samsung flip (or z) might have better specs (chipset) but who will use is for heavy use, gaming, etc, since the display is fragile
Samsung will not start a foldable phone trend if they sell it at high price.
