Return Of The Folding Phone
Once upon a time, flip phones were the latest craze in the mobile industry. You were the coolest kid in the schoolyard if you had a phone that you had to flip up to use. Of course, as soon as smartphones came along, features like this were no longer sought after. People wanted the biggest, slickest phone available, leaving this attribute to fade from most products. That was until Samsung decided they wanted to bring it back in an exciting new way.
An Innovative Design
Rather than being a device that you flip up, the Galaxy Fold is a phone that opens outwards. It essentially gives you double the screen space while still being compact enough to carry around in a pocket. Of course, the thing that’s strange about Samsung’s latest product is that the whole phone is one big screen. Rather than having a parting in the middle, the device is designed so the screen itself folds in half. Naturally, this has caused some issues for users.
The Overwhelming Issue
Within days of receiving the product, numerous reviewers revealed that their Galaxy Fold had already broken. People were reporting various issues with their screen, from one side not working correctly to the whole phone going bust. This is a significant issue for Samsung who can’t expect the public to buy their product if its liable to breaking. Thankfully, it seems like there might be a good reason why all these critics have found themselves with broken devices.
Easy Mistake To Make
It seems the reason that most people were having problems was that they’d removed the screen protector covering the device. Unlike most smartphones, this is something that actually needs to be left well alone, rather than being peeled off immediately. Now that critics have received new phones and been advised not to touch the protector, they shouldn’t have any more problems.
Will the Galaxy Fold be successful? Only time will tell on that one.
