Samsung has another folding phone, and this time it's the Galaxy Z Flip. Dieter Bohn reviews the screen, the hinge, and the cameras. It may not be worth $1380, but you can see that we're getting close to folding screens becoming "normal."

This could have been really fun if there was no crease in the middle and the screen wasn't so fragile.

Does anyone know how the sales have been on folding phones? I wouldn't buy one now but I hope they will keep improving upon them cause one day I really want to get one. I've NEVER gotten used to having a whole rectangular smart phone in my pocket, and I'm very antsy about damaging the screen. Would love to have a flip phone eventually.

Flip phones died out before I was an old enough age to own one, but now my dreams of owning a flip phone are possible again 🥺 Except, I'm broke. I wear my nails long. And I'd probably drop this phone in sand which would be the end of it - so it'd be like that sometimes😂😂

The Verge is biased towards Apple products. Simple. It would take Apple years to research at Samsung's level. Also, while you're at it ask Apple to use its own display. Oh wait you need Samsung or LG for that! There is a reason this channel can never compete with MKBHD or Unbox Therapy for that matter.

Thus thing is way ahead of its time. Samsung should hold their horses and wait until technology advances so it will be better and not be a bad phone. Idk what tf is happening with Samsung but their making phones faster than people can buy them. Probably money and trying to beat Apple.

"Boring" is such a shocking word that I didn't expect to hear in this review, while no "boring" word mentioned during iPhone review (it's a great phone (fact !), but it's ultimately very incremental update lol) when this has more than once 🤷🏻‍♂️ In my mind : It's a freaking phone that can can fold its display, something we couldn't imagine last several years duh ...

Does not like the "flex mode" of the phone but likes it when it becomes a clock stand at night. Lol! So much contrary on this review. Plus so much "i don't knows!" 😂

He has no technological experience in his education. He has a bachelor's in English and philosophy. His review is an utter sham. I have trouble accepting his education considering his very limited vocabulary.

I actually PREFER the symmetrical bezel around the screen over EVRYTHING that's available on Android. Having a bezels the exact same size all around looks just a million times better than having 3 different thick bezels around like on All Android flagships even if they're thinner... I don't care about this "I have the thinnest bezel!!!"-nonsense.
