Samsung Galaxy Fold review: Wait for the next generation

 

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is the company's first foldable smartphone. It boasts two screens, six cameras, and a dual-cell battery. The phone was delayed due to display issues, but Samsung has fixed all its problems, and it's now available. Here's what it's...

Speedy performance ; Solid multitasking features ; The 7.3-inch expansive screen is great for reading, watching videos ; Good battery life ; Folding it up is satisfying

The Galaxy Fold is a sign of things to come, but you should wait for the next one

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: A lot of money for a prototype

 

was complete, we still found the Fold's power and flexibility nothing short of intoxicating. As a commercial product, though, it leaves much to be desired. While closed, it's chunky and clumsy, and we have serious concerns about how well its main...

Game-changing flexibility ; Excellent performance ; Solid battery life

Seriously expensive ; Outer screen is of limited use ; The inner screen’s durability is concerning ; The software feels unpolished

Samsung Galaxy Fold re-review: here we go again

 

Less fragile doesn't mean not fragile.

Works nicely as a little tablet ; Excellent performance ; Good battery life

Even after fixes, the screen is still fragile ; Awkward form factor when closed ; Expensive

As for the Galaxy Fold, don’t buy one. But you should go to a store and play with one. As an experience, there’s a there there, if you know what I mean, even though the screen technology and software clearly aren’t there yet.

Despite being riddled with problems, the Galaxy Fold proves that a foldable phone future could work.

 

Despite being riddled with problems, the Galaxy Fold proves that a foldable phone future could work.

The Galaxy Fold's extra-large display is excellent for watching videos, photos and reading, and it makes for an excellent second screen. It proves that a foldable phone can be truly useful and not just a gimmick.

Design problems abound. Its 7.3-inch screen is too fragile and the 4.6-inch display is too small to be effective. Battery life is short. Multitasking could become more intuitive. At $1,980, the Fold is overpriced. It lacks water- and dust-resistance....

The Galaxy Fold makes a convincing case for foldable phones, but wait for Samsung and others to fix inherent problems that keep it costly and plague the screen.

Samsung Galaxy Fold

 

Samsung gets points for innovation with its Galaxy Fold. You can use this pricey device as a phone or a tablet, but it doesn't quite satisfy in either regard.

Solid performance. Excellent battery life. Nano SIM and eSIM support. Comes with Galaxy Buds.

Expensive. Questionable durability. Unfolded display is hard to see in direct sunlight. Front display has huge bezels. Lots of bloatware on AT&T version.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with too many compromises to justify its sky-high price. It's too expensive, too fragile, and too niche for us to recommend. Unless you're an exceptionally gentle early adopter and willing to drop $2,000 on what is very...

Samsung Galaxy Fold review (early verdict): we're sold on the fold

 

This isn't a wacky experiment or concept device, this truly feels like something that could truly change smartphone design...

Gorgeous 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display ; An iPad Mini-like Experience In Your Pocket ; Screen Is Protected When Folded Away ; Beautiful Fit-And-Finish ; Six Cameras With A Plethora Of Modes ; Wireless PowerShare

Chunky Design When Folded ; No 3.5mm Headphone Port ; Bezels Around Cover Display Are An Eyesore ; Extremely Pricey

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: Folding masterpiece or fundamentally flawed?

 

The first foldable phone is finally here after a choppy start. Is it the future of mobile, by offering a phone- and tablet-like experience in one?

Huge display is vibrant and sharp ; Good battery life ; Cameras everywhere ; Sensible software adaptation ; Galaxy Buds in the box ; Engineered to fit neatly into a pocket

Cameras aren't class-leading ; Exterior display is too small ; Display notch feels unnecessary ; Screen crease is visible from some angles ; Very expensive

Yes, some parts of the Fold aren't market leading, but this feels like the starting point for the next-gen of mobile devices. While other phone manufacturers squabble over incremental changes, Samsung has gone out and done something radical - and we...

Samsung Galaxy Fold review

 

Solid fold

It folds in half! ; Great performance ; Top battery life

It’s £1,900 ; Internal display easily permanently marked ; Both screens are awkward sizes

The future arrived too early for the Galaxy Fold - astonishing, but also too expensive and too fragile to recommend
