It’s given the industry a lesson in how not to test a product, certainly
Who would have thought this could possibly happen?
Oh, yeah, called it and got it
Taking risks and innovating is all well and good, but testing the product actually works should probably be a slightly higher priority, which they evidently didn't do.
They say a fix is 'in the works'
Samsung CEO says Galaxy Fold release ‘will not be too late’
Feels like they released an early beta as if it was production ready...
This is where I think Apple tends to do better than most - they're quite good at ensuring something's suitably tested, polished & really ready for release before actually unleashing it on the world.
Of course where they do worse is owning up to problems when they do actually get it wrong.
Apple - you’re holding it wrong
Samsung - it’s not on fire much
They clearly did test it and many reviewers had no problem with the device. Still, it was obviously released too early.
Said without a hint of irony
Didn't Apple release their own version of a bendable phone not too long ago? Except it wasn't supposed to be a bendy phone?
Apple’s patents have been filed for their version
Apple's iPhone Fold Designs Take Shape In New Patents
It's about time they invented foldable phones.
Great, now Apple are in with their retrospective innovating. another shit gimic no one wanted. Just make phones thicker with more battery FFS.
I Think this is a useless feature
I think you are about to drop a dull spambomb.
If I agree with you will you like my post?
Huaweis foldable is apparently not coming out on time either:
Huawei delays foldable phone launch until September to do extra tests after Samsung's troubles
Nothing to do with Android issues too I'm sure.
It's coming back!
Samsung finally speaks: The Galaxy Fold is ready to launch (again)
This is going to be fun.
Cue YouTube pricks breaking a Galaxy Fold for views.
Hopefully it'll be a success and we see folding screens come down in price and become an affordable option.
so its still held together with a sticker but they've made it a bit bigger and wedged it under the bezel.
Huawei however delay. Again.
Huawei Mate X foldable phone probably won't come out before November
companies distance themselves from foldable handsets
I wonder if we are just a few years to early for this tech. So fair play to Samsung for trying.
I won't be buying one. I can't see how they can make them robust enough for my lifestyle.
Could Microsoft be into something here.
Microsoft is considering foldable devices with liquid-filled hinges
So erm. Microsoft kinda beat everyone to the punch!
Microsoft Surface Duo is the foldable Surface Phone we’ve been waiting for | TechRadar
I prefer the Microsoft approach because as I've droned on about on this thread before, the single screen tech others are using is really bendable, not foldable. And I dont trust the way a few companies have tried to turn bendable into foldable so far.
Since their tablet is similar to their old courier concept that some of us gushed over here back in the day, time to revisit that thread I think!
