The Samsung Galaxy Fold, again: Hard to love, even harder to hate

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...

Samsung Galaxy Fold re-review: here we go again

 

Less fragile doesn't mean not fragile.

Works nicely as a little tablet ; Excellent performance ; Good battery life

Even after fixes, the screen is still fragile ; Awkward form factor when closed ; Expensive

As for the Galaxy Fold, don’t buy one. But you should go to a store and play with one. As an experience, there’s a there there, if you know what I mean, even though the screen technology and software clearly aren’t there yet.

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...
