    Ugh Samsung. I don't use any products that Steve Jobs wouldn't use.

    In all fairness I'm really looking for that 2019 Mac Pro event which I am expecting will take place at WWDC.

    Samsung plays a very different game with marketing. They want to be everywhere all the time. Like cheap beer!

    I guess you did fall for a sarcasm!
    But on a serious note,I don’t think a hole is that much better than a notch.

    I'd like a foldable phone with T9 text input. Oh wait, we had that years ago.

    I'm not sure what your definition of cosmopolitan is, but SF and London are both cosmopolitan cities, in my opinion.

    Easy solution. Black duct tape that covers the notch and its sides. This way the notch becomes a bezel.

    So which apple event in 2018 was that groundbreaking one? Cheap (tech recycling) ipad one? Or pure sw event with polished versions of 1 year old sw? Or one that brought us incremental upgrades of one year old iphones? Or mac event with mb air upgr (old tech from mb pro with new marketing name)? Please educate me...

    Exactly what I was wondering when I saw your content. Folding seems so dumb to me. It appears that we are running out of ways to innovate (mature product).... so... they have to really go crazy.

    Yes, although some of the leaks suggest at least one device might have a smaller outside screen so the phone is like an SE when desired, but can open out into a larger screen when needed. The best of both worlds.

    Any "first tech" of something usually sucks. Maybe in the future it could be implemented in a good way, but haven't seen anything close to that just yet.

    Personally, I use the complete iPad family (mini......Pro). Each display size is seems optimal for a specific application world (drone support .... mobile .... design / watch movies).

    I found it appalling that Apple was following the "Big is beautiful" agenda on the iPhone and eradically wipeing out the (at least India and china suitable) SE.

    Why are people so hellbent on getting rid of bezels? Sure... it WAS time to shrink the bezels down from the iPhone 8 and below days... but why are people wanting to ELIMINATE them? It's stupid. I don't see the point... especially if it means we get large notches and hole punched displays because of it.

    I have two questions about your points... so you are saying iPhone cant upgrade their software twice? and you are saying Samsung batteries never degrade over time?

    Could be that Apple Watch that takes an EKG... iPad also saw a pretty big leap forward.

    Ahh, you must have missed the gigantic leap forward in processing power, or the watch that can now take an EKG, or the iPad pro announcement. So it looks like you missed at least 2 of the keynotes.

    I really do love all these new smartphone designs that are coming out , but unless Android and Apple find a way for us to use Apple watch on Android platform, i am stuck on the existing Iphone platform. Not that I'm complaining about it...

    Regardless of the uber-strong (and narrow-minded) Apple tribalism in here:

    Foldable displays are indeed a leap of "think different" and create a challenge to engineering, and to product and ergonomic design.

    Will it succeed? Maybe... maybe not.

    But if successful, it will be disruptive, and create designs that we have yet to imagine -- akin to the natural evolution of three-dimensional, multi-finger, touch.

    Those that deny this, are either blinded by tribalism or idiots, or both.

    I don't see how a phone screen can be foldable and highly scratch resistant.
