[Poll Results!] Do you even care about the Galaxy Fold anymore?

Nobody will hold it against you if you don’t. Samsung botched the initial Galaxy Fold launch and arguably missed its “Apple moment.” It wasn’t just that the device wasn’t durable enough. The lack of information from Samsung after the April 26 launch was delayed did not inspire confidence.

There was never any question of the Galaxy Fold being discontinued. We knew that it would return. This was confirmed by Samsung’s mobile boss DJ Koh himself a few weeks ago. Earlier today, Samsung finally confirmed that it will relaunch the Galaxy Fold in September.

It has also made significant improvements to address the issues. The display’s protective layer has been tucked into the frame itself. The hinge gap has been reduced and metal reinforcements have been added underneath the display panel for added protection.

That being said, prospective customers will now approach the $2000 device with caution, more so than ever before. They have seen how delicate it was and may not immediately jump to purchase it come September. T-Mobile has already decided it’s not going to carry the Galaxy Fold anymore. Samsung will really have to go out of its way to convince customers that the device won’t face those issues again.

Is it too little, too late though? Do you even care about the Galaxy Fold anymore or did you stop caring about it a long time ago? Vote below and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

Results: It seems the Galaxy Fold’s durability issues haven’t completely turned people off from the innovative device. 34 percent of voters say they still care about the Fold but won’t buy it for the price, while 21 percent believe it’s the most innovative mobile device in decades. 27 percent voters said they never cared for the Fold in the first place, while 17 percent of voters think Samsung’s foldable phone/tablet is doomed because of the botched launch. Of course, only time will tell if that is going to be the case.

While the concept is still a work in progress. I would rather wait for a future iteration of the product.

If Brazilian samsung follows its current pricing policy, the galaxy fold will cost R$ 12250 Reais ($ 3240 US Dollars). Can you believe this price in a third world country? Exactly 12 months minimum wage in Brazil!

You really are an idiot. Why don’t you do us all a favour and disappear and never come back because your comments are pointless and at times offensive and there’s no room for that crap on a fan site. If I owned this site your ass would have been banned long ago. Does it make v10tbr a bad person because samsung charge high prices in his/her country, no. Grow the hell up and keep your mindless immature comments to yourself.

“Is it too little”

What do you mean here ?

I’ll wait for it to mature. I don’t want to be a beta tester for a mobile phone I use as a daily driver and I depend on it. Felt how it is to have a nearly unusable phone back in May with my S10+ and it bothers me more than I imagined.

It’s definitely very innovative. I wouldn’t buy it though because it’s expensive, except if you need a phone and a tablet, then it’s quite good value if you’re looking to buy both to handle your needs. You’ve got a powerful phone and a powerful tablet for the price of a powerful phone and a powerful tablet! Lol. You wouldn’t save much money, but you would have the convenience of having everything in something you can put in your pocket. I don’t use the Note but I think that what it’s really missing is an sPen. Of course I don’t think… Read more »

I will begin to care about the Galaxy fold when it grows an S pen. No S Pen, no buy.

no, I left for another brand. 3000.00 later in 18 months and too many exchanges, it seems only the rich and infamous can afford buying smartphone as it it were candy.

Yes mobile phones are getting stupidly pricey and it’s not much gain over the generation.

The s10 over the s8 is only marginal and those on a budget I would not recommend the upgrade price.

Personally after spending £999 on my s10 I will hold out till they release a 5g phone same size as an s10

The problem here is that android phone makers doesn’t support their phones and this force you to upgrade (especially if you care about security). S7/s7E are already dropped from support and on “when we feel like” update cycle and ofc no One UI. S8 will follow after 8-9 months… and this while I totally agree that the s10 doesn’t bring a lot more vs the s8. Apple supports their phone a lot better – 5s is still fully supported and on the latest ios 12.4. It’s 2013 phone and this will leave it at 6 years of support (full, not… Read more »

I don’t think anyone needs to be rich and famous. You can get a top brand smartphone on a carrier plan for about 40 euro a month, that’s two movie tickets with nachos and coke just once a month. A Galaxy Fold will be the same, just twice a month. Even someone working at McDonald’s could afford that. People often say the same about iPhones being a symbol of success. But go into any store or supermarket and I guarantee you that every second check out operator and shelf stacker has an iPhone. Of course, they might be very successful… Read more »

With that logic people are tricked to pay way more for products than they normally would. Just 40 euros, right? For start – 40 euros in Germany are not the same value as 40 euros in Bulgaria. Second – then let’s make phones cost 10 000 euros and have a plan for 5 years that will leave you with small monthly price – would be great, right? Good value. 🙂 Phones right now costs absurd amount of money without bringing something revolutionary on the table – small incremental updates. Iphone xs max, note 10+ and so on – you can… Read more »

Galaxy Fold is a foldable phone, not a smartphone.

The rest of it are merely smartphones comparable to dumb featured phones from a decade ago.

@SamsungNo1. That comment is pretty dumb. How are smartphones comparable to dumb phones? Make a list of what a dumb phone has that a smartphone also has? And how is the foldable phone not a smart phone? Is IT a dumb phone? Where’s your logic man? Are you one of those idiot Samsung Knights I heard about? Lol.

SAMSUNGNO1
SAMSUNGNO1

You obviously didn’t get it..

Oh well..

Smartphones are the new dumbphones when foldables are out..

If I own a foldable phone I wouldn’t want other people to refer it as a smartphone cos that’ll paint me the same as the rest with backwards devices such as smartphones.

Foldable phones will be the new superior device and smartphones should be categorized as the same as dumb featured phones from a decade ago.

Until that time arrives that is..

Of course I got it. It seems you didn’t. The only difference is that the phone folds. It has the same processor, the same OS and the same capabilities. Just like you, it isn’t smarter because it can fold. It’s not a smarter phone in any way. You are definitely a Samsung Knight. Only you guys can be that bloody stupid. There is nothing pointing to the fact that foldable phones are the future at all. There are many problems such as mechanical wear and tear, plastic screens that are definitely going to be a scratchy mess and will start… Read more »

Interested in it, but this close to the Note 10….

Valid point. You can buy 2 Note 10’s for the price of one Galaxy Fold. However, the Galaxy Fold is unique.

Yes it is. The most recent rumors about the Note’s cameras and processor are starting to swing me back to it though. August 7 is going to be gut-wrenching for me. I hope we hear about both devices then.

Gunter2

That’s very true, but it won’t compete against the Note10. There’s a niche market for the Note10 because of the Spen. If the Fold had an SPen that would be different. However one day a foldable device with an SPen may well replace the Note completely.

Interested in the phone but won’t be buying it … Not because of the price but it’s gen 1 and best to wait for gen 2 or even 3
