      I’ve been reading reports in the news about issues with the new Samsung Fold phone and the display (this being the most extreme, but coming from a Mac news site, it would be:

      Anyone planning on shelling out $2,000 for the new foldie or giving it a pass?

      Yeah, a number of reviewers on tech sites have had hardware breakage after only a few days normal usage. Back to the drawing board.

      Even if it was perfect, at $2K this is only for enthusiasts. There are so many other excellent Samsung, Huawei etc phones which give real value for money.

      I’m waiting for the first report of a cookie crumb or large sand/dust particle being caught in that fold . . . and the subsequent warranty request result.

      What’s that crunching sound?

      I’m personally an iPhone user (tried Android once and while powerful, I missed the polish with iOS), and I have the iPhone XS, and I cringed at the $1,000+ price on it (I did the iPhone Upgrade program just because I couldn’t bring myself to pay the cost up front). $2,000 for an Android phone that brings us back to a “flip phone” after smartphone manufactuerers have been trying to get us off of “flip phones”? Not my thing.
