Samsung is still launching the Galaxy Fold on April 26th, despite reports about problems with the screen. Despite those issues, our review answers the most important questions: does the screen, camera, performance, and software experience hold up?
UPDATE: Samsung is delaying the Galaxy Fold release due to issues with review units that technology reporters have revealed: bit.ly/2ZreZqx

Hi friends, I see some of you are commenting about how we used a bit of clay to shoot some footage of the phone. To be super clear, we cleaned it off very rigorously. In my original article (bit.ly/2PiOhMi), I just said it MIGHT be what caused the screen to break, just because it’s important to me to be very transparent and honest. But the truth is that: 1. No fewer than five review units have been broken so far. 2. I don’t really think it was the clay, but I might be wrong! 3. No matter what, it is VERY troubling to worry that anything could get inside the device. Just like Lew said: “I’m fairly confident that some substance on this hinge component could possibly work its way into the device. ... Maybe you have to baby it.” Nobody wants to have to baby a phone! - Dieter

Why out of five hundred devices all “broke down” only in one country of the world, one can only guess... :D

​+Brian The fact that he wasn't being honest was the point. Clear difference between reviews looking for headlines and honest reviews. If a disclaimer gets lost in the headlines... pretty obvious what kind of review it is.

Me, I don't have the device myself but if I did the reason I would really like it is that it replaces the tablet that Cant call that can now Call, (i will still probably ONLY use the tablet layout mode) but I am Really Disappointed that there isn't water resistance on this phone, and I really don't think it is a risk I am willing to take to buy myself that phone with a chance the screen will break till they fix the issue.

In the US, four journalists “broke down” Galaxy Fold, in three cases, the top layer of the display was deliberately torn off, one had something under the screen, but the smartphone continued to work. Why out of five hundred devices all “broke down” only in one country of the world, one can only guess. :D

Apple: *REMOVES THE HEADPHONE JACK* The internet: OMG! APPLE REMOVED THE HEADPHONE JACK! IPHONES ARE TOO PRICEY! THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! Samsung: Releases a phone that bursts into flames, releases a $2000 prototype foldable phone that breaks easily. The internet: oh well, they tried.. BIASED MUCH?

Dear verge. The top layer of galaxy fold is a cpi film. U shldnt tear it or mess with it. Lmao tho. Pretty sure they would come back w better stuff. Samsung doubtless, has one of the top quality stuff in this industry for now. So i guess we have to believe them?

Stacking two phones together is not innovation. Apple put the damn smart phone in your pocket 12 years ago and that was our gen's version of the car innovation. We'll know it if it happens again, but this ain't it.

Don't get me wrong, I also think it was a horrible mistake of Samsung to push that device to marked without proper testing, however your argument that the multi tasking is worse than on an iPad ( 7:40) is a poor comparision because if you fold your iPad it doesn't restore the multi tasking layout either ;)

They put clay on the back of the phone to stand it up for pictures. Avarage users dont do that.

If a piece of clay can get in the back of the phone, what stops pocket lint and dust from getting in the phone? Are people not supposed to put it in their pocket?

This is a gimmick phone. In 2 or 3 years when it's half the thickness and actually durable then sure, but right now I genuinely can't see the point. The Huawei offering looks far more interesting as an idea anyway, and when durability is so poor on the Samsung the fact that the screen is on the outside doesn't seem like the big problem some made it out to be.

Actually only ONE has failed. All of the others were not due to a defective device but to the negligence of the reviewer not reading the operational manual. Which was also explained in their own Videos. So everyone will now be making videos on this, search: Samsung Galaxy Fold Failure. And they will get the views because people LOVE DESTRUCTION. Watch Unbox Therapy he removes the real screen protector with the TAB at the bottom.

Your pocket has lint in it that would definitely get into every crack and crevice. That phone is never going to work until at the very least they put some sort of bellows to stop anything from getting behind the screen

It turned into another perspective when you had experienced it first hand, but technically it's the owner's duty to take care or not his phone, all modern phones are fragile, no exemptions.
