    Not a product to really be ready for a year or two but it's still the future of tech

    Going to sort out issues like this..

    Why would anyone think that this WOULDN't happen? I mean, there's a reason why its the first folding phone. Don't expect more than a prototype. At least (From what I've read in the past) Samsung is going to replace these affected units. Hopefully people get their moneys worth, and Apple stays out of it until the product they may or may not make won't bend like this, or at all

    No, I think it’s you that’s confused.

    Widespread: “found or distributed over a large area or number of people.”

    Where’s the large number of people who have this device?

    This is what happens when they pioneer on their own, without copying Apple.

    Worse than looking removable is the fact that it is easily removable.

    I always thought the Huawei Mate X was the better of the two tech giant folding phones. It looks more solid anyway. I'm looking forward to reviews on it.

    At least none of them have exploded, yet.

    No, but it gives the constant criticism of Apple context.

    It's a beta product. What do you expect?

    Probably Samsung will inspect those devices and come with a solution.

    Don't know why so many people from here complain! It's not like you spent 2000$ on the phone and didn't know it's a beta product, or Samsung come with the "F you response"! I'm an Apple user but I admire Samsung courage and the fact that they are trying something new!

    In the meantime Apple prepare to release a NEW phone with the SAME design with a LITTLE specs bump :)

    The words 'I told you so' come to mind. Perhaps this is a manufacturing bug that Samsung will be able to fix, but flexing anything that is somewhat stiff is likely to cause deterioration as well as electrical problems. They'd probably have been better off using two separate screens with a precisely machined hinge so that the screens lined up as perfectly as possible.

    Actually, the guy cleaning the outside of Notre Dame had one with him... :)


    This whole phone is built like a butterfly switch in apple’s keyboard. Get a piece of dust in there and watch the fun begin.

    When people have an obvious bias for Samsung and come here laughing about Apple cancelling AirPower...yes, this exempts something like that from criticism. Apple could have released their hairy, warty prototype but they aren't the kind of company to do that.

    If Apple had released this, you wouldn't have stopped posting about it for a decade.

    You're such a sycophantic Apple hater that you end up defending crap from other companies. Are you capable of forming an actual opinion without mentioning or balancing it against an Apple product?

    It looks to me that it's better not to release a half baked product (wink, AirPower, wink) than do a total recall on a halo/flagship device.
