The reporters from CNBC, Bloomberg and The Verge had early access to Samsung Galaxy Fold devices and shared that they broke after a couple of days of use.

Nexter.org gathered all the reports to investigate the situation.

Samsung Galaxy Foldable phone isn’t as good as we expected 

At the recent Samsung event, the tech giant introduced the game-changing mobile – The Galaxy Fold.

 

The groundbreaking design features two displays, an exterior 4.6-inch display, and an interior 7.3-inch display.

It also has a 7nm processor and 12GB RAM, 512GB onboard storage. The whole idea of the first foldable phone has astonished the guests of the event! The price is starting at $1,980.

Unfortunately, these devices aren’t that well-developed for now.

Mark Gurman, from Bloomberg, shared pics saying “The screen on my Galaxy Fold review unit is completely broken and unusable just two days in. Hard to know if this is widespread or not.”

 

Also, it turned out that he removed the protective layer that he wasn’t supposed to touch.

“The phone comes with this protective layer/film. Samsung says you are not supposed to remove it. I removed it, not knowing you’re not supposed to (consumers won’t know either).

“It appeared removable in the left corner, so I took it off. I believe this contributed to the problem.”

 

YouTube user, Marques Brownlee, had exactly the same problem.

“There’s a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold’s display. It’s NOT a screen protector. Do NOT remove it.

“I got this far peeling it off before the display spazzed and blacked out. Started over with a replacement.”

 

These issues are quite understandable as the company directly asked the users not to remove this layer.

Nevertheless, some of the reporters had exactly the same problems without even touching the film.

Dieter Bohn, executive editor of the technology news site, The Verge, stated that one of the displays started to black out as soon as they opened it.

 

The same happened to Steve Kovach, a Tech editor at CNBC.com.

 

Samsung commented on the issue with the following statement:

“A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.

“Separately, a few reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers.”
