    Let's Talk About the Foldable Smartphone- you talk alone. We are just texting.

    Folding devices are not only pointless (“we did it because we can” kind of thing) but also stupid... moving parts break, and there has got to be a lot of those to make this work. The life of this device is going to be pathetic compared to most mainstream smartphones and tablets because of this, and it’ll be way uglier, thicker, and heavier. So I agree Marques — what is the point of even trying this? There may be worthwhile applications for this technology in other fields, but this ain’t it.

    Please don’t make this a thing. PLEASE don’t make this a thing. It’s aesthetically so not pleasing.

    Why don't they use this tech for making more durable displays? If it's bendable then it's can't be broken, right?

    For $1300 that should have 1tb. Wasting money to develop foldable phone but battery and storage still suck.

    With any new design concept comes risk.; sometimes they work and sometimes not. At least these companies are trying.Apart from the very original iPhone Apple has simply sat on their laurels and wait until these innovations become mainstream then produce one claiming its a new fresh idea.

    This could be useful for people who mainly watch youtube videos on their phone, I imagine being able to unfold for a larger and easier-to-see display would be a very nice thing to have.

    We went from non-folding phones with a small screen and push buttons, to flip-phones, then back to non-folding smartphones, and folding smartphones again... Technology comes full circle and very quickly

    pfff...apple could fold their tablets for years and now samsung copycat caches up.(NOTE : its a one time fold, after that you need to pay double the price, no no triple, i mean 99999$ dollars to unfold it from the apple store.) (or you could just give it to any other person in the planet for 80$)

    I think that the foldable smartphones will not be the future.They don’t suit as a daily driver.

    If apple were to make a foldable iPhone, it would cost nearly over $3000.

    i don't care for a foldable phone, but can you please PLEASE put that screen in a normal phone so that my display doesn't brake every 3 frecking months ? i guess not because that would hurt the sales right...

    Anyone else believe they need to remake the HTC One with the touch screen smartphone on top with slideout full button qwerty keyboard?! I loved that phone... sad they got rid of physical keyboards, home buttons and headphone jacks!
