  • What do you want to know about the Z Fold 2 or Duo?

    • After seeing and trying and seeing the realistic use... LG win.. i wont talk about the good.. i will honestly talk about the bàd of the fold 2.. when folded, the phone is too skinny to used, the length to widrh ratio is so off.. you can not use it comfortably. When open it does not fullfil the tablet feel, it feel fragile as a tablet, again the ratio of length to width is off. And multitasking.. using 2 tiny screen seem like its lacking of space, its like you have to compromised your usable feeling for having extra but feeling disappointed!!!! ( i am so comfortable with using split view on my ipad, that comparing to realistic use on galaxy2, galaxy is not there yet). The only good thing i see the good use of the open fold2 is to watch movie or view picture, and when you put it that way, i would prefer a slightly bigger tablet. Maybe galaxy need to extend the width half an inch longer! The feeling of holding the fold, not great, it feel uncomfortable. LG , I take it as it is, 2 separated screen and multitask, 2 big enough screen that functionaly fullfill the multitasks, video watching on the left, full right side to read facebook or news... holding the lg and open it up, feel great in your hand, realistic comfortable feeling.

  • Z-flip = a foldable smartphone Z-fold2 = a foldable tablet Surface Duo = two tablets linked together Well I don't see the use in the Surface.. If you just carry two of those cheaper tablets, you can even detach two screens when you wanna multi-task. And you can share one device to your friend. You still have a tablet left even if some one steals one. How dope is that? LG at least got the price right

You don't make the rules on what fails and what succeeds, the PEOPLE decide and People have decided that Dual Screen is a great idea that it will be explored. Even Apple is deciding to make a dual screen iPhone in the future.

    • @Muyanzi Reid" Mini Laptop?",tiny screen with no mechanical keyboard running Android is the laptop of the future.😂. It is a product which is doomed to fail, it is neither a foldable nor a new segment of products. I place all my bets on galaxy fold concept. It just needs polishing and it can come from any company in the future.

      Saksham SharmaSaksham SharmaAcum 4 luni
    • Not true... Microsoft Surface Duo is more of a mini laptop than a phone like the Galaxy Fold 2 is.... While using the full screen keyboard you need the bezels for something to hold on to so your Palms don't accidentally touching the screen and cause unwanted gestures.

  • I don't care what you think or say. But all I think is that Fold2 is amazing no matter what you say even though I afford it. We all know The Verge's track record in terms of hating Samsung and praising Apple. So I don't really put their opinions as really important and accurate.

  • If you want a Galaxy Fold I have absolutely no reservations in recommending them. I've had one now for a year and it's worked brilliantly and very productively. It's totally transformed my mobile experience. The screen is as pristine as the day I bought it, the fold still looks the same and virtually undetectable and everything about it has worked 100% every time. It's undoubtedly the best phone I've ever had. But I'll certainly upgrade it to the Fold 2 when that becomes available in the UK as the front screen is bigger and the inside one is bigger too.
