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 (, 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!

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

Samsung: Releases a phone that bursts into flames, releases a $2000 prototype foldable phone that breaks easily.
The internet: oh well, they tried..

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?

Dieter Excellent Review. And I'm with you will definitely be thinking about it. And so hope they Correct it all. Because I love the whole Concept and if they fix the issues then maybe I won't think about it and just might get one.Thanks so much for sharing Deb.😉👍✌

It would drive me crazy having to “baby” this device Everyday. I work outside in a shop with a lot of dust, there’s no way I could get the fold.

Samsung are stupid for releasing this product so soon. Delays would have been better so that they could test it!

I always worry about it folds by itself when I using . Maybe that is my problem ,heheh e

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.

I love how the thickness of this when closed is all good but they won't make a thicker normal phone and dump in a massive battery.

How do you review a product like this and ignore the problems of the screen? Isn't that just giving it a free pass.....
