Samsung's Galaxy Fold is glitching out just days after reviewers get their hands on it

1 month ago   |   By The Next Web

Samsung has another PR disaster on its hands. According to multiple sources, Samsung's new Galaxy Fold - its dual-screen, folding smartphone - is failing just days after reviewers got their hands on it. At least it's not catching fire. “A review unit given to CNBC by Samsung is completely unusable after just two days of use,” wrote Todd Haselton.

Notes from the Samsung Galaxy Fold: day two

Notes from the Samsung Galaxy Fold: day two

1 month ago   |   By TechCrunch

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the technical difficulties multiple reviewers have been experiencing with their units. This sort of thing can happen with pre-production models. I've certainly had issues with review units in the past, but these reports are worth mentioning as a note of caution with a product, which we were concerned might not be ready for prime time only a couple of weeks ago.
At the very least, it's as good a reason as any to wait a couple of weeks before more of these are out in the world before dropping $2,000 to determine how widespread these issues are.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a durability problem

1 month ago   |   By TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is an ambitious foldable phone , but one with mounting durability problems, according to a handful of press who got early access to it. We've seen a total of five broken Fold screens - four in which it isn't working at all and one instance in which half of the 7.3-inch tablet-like display is flickering. Reviewers and analysts from CNBC, Bloomberg, The Verge, Android Central and YouTube tweeted about their experience after one and two days with the phone.
In some but not all cases, Samsung has already replaced the broken review units. If problems persist, it may run...

There are two distinct issues here, and only one is particularly fixable.
Just a couple of days after journalists, including us here at Android Central, got their hands on the Galaxy Fold for the very first time, multiple reports have surfaced that these initial review devices are having screen failures. At this point at least four different devices have failed, which may not seem like a lot until you realize that there are perhaps only a few dozen Galaxy Folds in the hands of people outside of Samsung employees.
From looking at all of the information available, and using a Galaxy Fold...

It was bound to happen. Some early Galaxy Fold smartphones are experiencing issues, according to recent tweets from various technology journalists and YouTubers. While some of the problems, with The Verge's Dieter Bohn being the most notable example, seem to stem from the Fold's display just outright being faulty, others involve what looks like a screen protector being removed from the Fold's inner 7.3-inch AMOLED polymer display. Bohn says there was a slight bulge in his review unit Fold's display that eventually evolved into a full puncture through the screen. My Samsung Galaxy Fold...

Samsung's $2000 Galaxy Fold Broke Within 48 Hours

1 month ago   |   By Android Headlines

Samsung's Galaxy Fold can handle over 200,000 folds, but apparently that is not the case. Within 48 hours of giving the device to numerous media outlets, a flood of reports have come out about the screen breaking, and breaking in different ways. Not a good look for Samsung.
The Galaxy Fold is a first-generation smartphone, it is a brand new form-factor and it is innovative to a degree. But the issues that we are seeing with the Galaxy Fold, less than 48 hours into users actually being able to use it, is pretty astonishing. And very bad.
These phones aren't just breaking, but they are...
