Samsung Galaxy Fold hands-on: The foldable phone still feels fabulous

 

AT IFA 2019, Samsung showed off a fixed version of the Galaxy Fold, the company's foldable phone. With a new protective screen cover and hinge caps, the product addresses earlier flaws -- and still feels fabulous. It's officially going on sale at the...

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...

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...

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’s foldable phone is the Galaxy Fold, available April 26th starting at $1,980

 

Samsung first teased its foldable phone back in November, and at the company's Galaxy Unpacked event today, it's further detailing its foldable plans. Samsung's foldable now has a name, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and the company is revealing more about...

Samsung isn’t the only smartphone maker creating a foldable device, but it’s certainly one of the first to make it widely available. Xiaomi teased its own folding phone recently, that looked like the best concept we’ve seen so far. Huawei is also...

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 fits 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...
