First impressions of the latest foldable phone


Moving on to the inner screen, the ultra-thin glass feels great to touch and move the icons around. It’s very similar to glass, but not quite there. The interior screen is also a bit of a dust magnet, which quickly becomes irritating. But let’s get to the part you want to hear about – let’s talk about the crease.

Oh, you bet it’s there and noticeable. The screen does fade a bit at the bend, but that’s just physics. Light behaves differently at different angles and no amount of UTG can solve this problem. That being said, if you look at the phone head-on it’s much less noticeable. Really, the only question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you will care. Personally, I don’t.

The hinge gap is still there, and I still don’t like it. I understand that it’s incredibly hard to get rid of, especially when trying to get the aforementioned crease out of the way. Like the crease though, it will either bother you or it won’t.

Finally, Samsung has included a feature that I can’t decide yet if I think it’s neat or just a gimmick, but when you have the phone half open and launch an app, you can choose to launch that app all over the phone. screen or just the upper part. The bottom half can turn into a trackpad/mouse, or adjust brightness or volume, take a screenshot, or open the notification panel. The latter two feel a bit like Samsung realized it only had three useful functions to put there, but thought it needed two more.
