Samsung’s $2,000 foldable phone is already breaking, reviewers say

Samsung’s futuristic new foldable phone keeps breaking

"We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter", a Samsung spokesperson told Mashable. It's a distressing thing to discover just two days after receiving my review unit. It starts as a smartphone with a normal 4.6in screen which can then be folded out into a 7.3in tablet screen, opening up like a book or a map. What's even worse is that some owners are reporting broken screen after merely days of use. The Galaxy Fold's main display has an upper protective layer, which is part of the display structure and is created to protect the display from unintentional scratches. Many units have broken after just a day or two. "I removed it, not knowing you're not supposed to (consumers won't know either)", Gurman said.

The company's statement to The Verge shows no sign of slowing down the Galaxy Fold's April 26launch, although these plans could very well change when investigations are complete.

"Separately, a few reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen".

The problems outlets like Bloomberg, The Verge and CNBC are experiencing with their Galaxy Fold units are either cracking/breaking of the screen, or flickering, Reuters reports.

At present, however, Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Fold devices are "leading" the way among phones with 5G potential, according to Yoo.

Samsung has once again been put into the "spotlight" after one of its so-called most expensive folding phones - Galaxy Fold, pricing at 2,000 US dollars, reported broken by some industry journalists.

Samsung has spent almost eight years developing its smartphone, and it fits perfectly into the brand's strategy to boost its growth. "Hard to know if this is widespread or not", Mr Gurman tweeted.

The Bloomberg writer speculates that the issue could have stemmed from the removal of a plastic layer on the screen that he mistakenly believed was a screen protector.

Needless to say, so many failures among a limited number of review samples sent out is troubling to say the least.

Some users have suffered issues following them removing a protective layer from the 7.3-inch screen. "We will ensure that this information is clearly communicated to our customers".

However, CNBC's Haselton noted that his phone stopped working despite keeping the protective film intact.

Samsung has reacted to the news in the last few hours and I will share its quote on the issues too.
