Is the Galaxy Fold a Galaxy Flop?

Recently users who were admitted in the beta testing version of the new foldable Samsung Galaxy device have been told to return their devices to Samsung for fixes, and not to officially review the product as a finished phone. Lets be honest, Samsung is pretty well known for jumping the gun on things, and with a competitor like Apple I don't blame them. However, it seems like the idea of a foldable phone is just out of reach for now. Recently in many cases, phones have been experiencing some extremely bizarre screen issues. Bizarre in the sense that, well it's a screen we've never really seen before, and it folds... Of course there are going to be issues with that! Just the sound of it sounds terrible, although I wouldn't say it was a complete flop, it was definitely a learning experience, as well as leaps and bounds ahead of Apple.


According to some reputable reviewers (mainly MKBHD and Unboxed Therapy) Samsung is likely to change the screens out, possibly make a tweak as far as durability goes, and re-write how this phone should be handled. I am all fine and dandy with explaining how delicate this device can be, but for thousands of dollars and a company as large as Samsung I have to say it's a little disappointing that they rushed this to the market only to find how delicate it really is.. Bottom line: It should be way more durable.


This post isn't supposed to just be 3 paragraphs of me shitting on this phone, it's a great, innovative, and game changing phone for sure. For the most part, the quality is durable. All I am saying is that I hope Samsung can compensate their customers fairly, as they usually do, and make this phone great. With any V.1 device there are hiccups, this one just seems like it's one of their biggest, second only to the actual bomb they put out in August of 2016 with the Note 7. Yikes. I want to see Samsung pass Apple in the premium mobile phone market, I think they can really do it. In my opinion Id say that for the first time they are completely neck and neck, and I know any hardcore Android user would punch me for saying that Apple has always been 1 step ahead, but it's true. Apple started with the best OS and worked their way up by innovating the user experience (what 75% of users actually want in a phone) over the hardware innovations that Samsung has created.
