      Funny how everyone complained when Apple took away the headphone jack, made an iphone that had a notch, and had an iphone that costs a grand, but nobody complains when Samsung ends up doing the same with this phone.

      Battery life, gaming, photography, Can it play Elder Scrolls Blades?, Music playback, any screen protectors or cases in the box?

      For the review, I'd like to know how a foldable phone holds up in everyday usage. How often are you really pulling it out and unfolding it? How long until the novelty wears off and you find the folding behaviour slows you down?

      +Karsten Von Fjellheim You are crazy for asking. This is ultra thin amoled screen and gaming will cause overheat and artifacts in no time.

        Wonder how much longer till they have 48 and 60 month leases on these things... they will never make a new $300 phone that is affordable because nobody would buy the expensive ones since they do the same thing.

                  Interesting idea but it's not practical yet. We need quite a few years until the form factor gets slim and handy enough for everyday use. But we have to start somewhere. Think about where regular cell phones started and how far we've come.

                                    which will CRACK first, the flexible display fold line from flexing it, or the outer display from dropping it??? .... either way, Samsung has greatly increased their cracked display revenue cash flow.

                                      I'm confused why these people make a deal of split screen and popup apps when it's available on my ancient android tablet and phone. Bizarre

                                          That crease is a little bit worrying. Hopefully a second gen will be better.

                                                          The review is great but background sound was a bit distracting. Found myself at times tuning you out and trying to figured out what the conversation in the back was about. As for the phone I think most people agree we should wait until future generations.
