[Poll Results!] Are you looking forward to purchasing Samsung’s foldable device?

It’s been a few years since we have been hearing about Samsung working on a foldable smartphone. Last week, Samsung finally gave us a glimpse of what the device will look like. Well, we don’t fully know what it will look like, but we do know that it can effortlessly transform from a phone to a tablet and back again to a phone. And come 2019, this foldable device will, at long last, make it to retail stores.

Samsung’s foldable device, which will possibly be launched as part of the new Galaxy F lineup, will be limited in availability. It will also command an exorbitant price tag, as such an advanced mobile device is expected to. Recent reports suggest the price could start at nearly $1,800, which means buyers of the device will join an elite and exclusive club while the rest of us wait for the foldable form factor to become more affordable in the coming years.

But should the price not be an obstacle for you, are you excited for and interested in picking up Samsung’s first foldable phone (or foldable tablet, depending on how you look at it)? That’s the question we’re asking today. Be sure to leave a comment to let us and other readers know your thoughts once you’ve voted in the poll.

Results: 39 percent of voters said they aren’t looking forward to buying the foldable phone, while 38 percent say they will have to wait for the full device and pricing reveal before they can say for sure. Only 22 percent say they’re interested in getting the Galaxy F, and while it’s not that small a number, it’s probably not as big as Samsung would like.

Honestly if one likes the curved display cool, if not, it’s your choice. The only Samsung device I use is the Note series and everything about it is what I NEED, hopefully they will never stop making them or something satisfying enough. I cant speak for everyone else, I have no problem with the curve. Samsung has the curve, Apple has the notch, every phone maker has something different.

I m happy with the curve on the s9 and s8 … Only issue is finding a tempered glass protector.

99% of the time I forget the screen is curved and it’s good way to make the phone slimmer in width.

Would be happy to pick up the S10 with curved 5.8 inch screen as long as the spec is there

See I’m not convinced that curved displays is the form factor of the future. Now, paying a crazy pricetag for a first iteration of a device that will take atleast 2 or 3 yearly revisions for it’s issues to iron out and since smartphone prices are going up lately and not down, despite manufacturing costs may get lower, then I really don’t see me or a good part of the market buying such device.

I like how I am getting downvotes yet the poll results reflect exactly my opinion. Now I have no doubt that this place is infested with biased people and most possibly Samsung reps that get paid to monitor this site. Good. Now you’ve been exposed. Taking screenshots so the evidence won’t be covered. Also it is everybody else’s best interest when they come here and they comment on articles to know what people are around here.

To be honest, I’m pretty much done with Samsung phones. Once my contract ends I’ll get rid of my S8 and buy something with FLAT screen. No more curved screen phones for me.

I’m gonna agree that the Edge display needs to go. Even if it offers something, it’s more of a headache and it comes with a lot of issues than a great feature worth staying.

What’s great about it? The horrible glare and the colour shift at the edges?

I don’t seem to have any problems with curved screen except for screen protectors. I’m fine without it since I rarely drop my phone. After trying every flat phones I actually liked using the curved one as it doesn’t bother me unlike the notch. I found the curved screen really beautiful and makes the S7 edge and Note 7 the most beautiful phone in 2016.

Well go ahead. When S6 Edge and S6 came out the curved screen was so popular the demand exceeded Samsung expectations and in the years ahead curved screens outsold the flat variant. This is a fact that the demand for curved screen is bigger than flat

Maybe. So? Go buy an iPhone by that logic, they sell so much better than Samsung phones. Must be better phones.

Some of us will never accept that a distorted display is “normal”.

Iteration 2 or 3 will be when I am interested in the new device. They can iron out the issues and short comings.

once they have found a better way to keep the device slim and improve the screen quality and battery life. plus the decrease in costs will be the key factors for me to buy one
