    Today this isn't gonna be a long tip thread for you but before you buy be aware of these issues because you maybe buying the phone for it's hardware but for the brand name, but it all depends on how you look at it.

    Before you buy check out these tips:

    • Keep in mind the Samsung GALAXY Fold is new technology being tried out in the real world so don't expect it to not have problems down the line.

    • The Samsung GALAXY Fold has a protective layer that LOOKS like a screen protector but it's NOT this layer is apart of the screen and if you remove the protective layer the screen will stop working KEEP YOUR KIDS INFORMED because i see a lot of people punish their kids for breaking stuff they never were aware about and never say hey it's more of my fault then theirs because u didn't tell them! (Keep in mind kids do not enjoy reading they just go and use the device without caring about what the warnings say, kids hate reading unless you inform them about the issues)

    • The Samsung GALAXY Fold is NOT water resistant. This means if water get on it your $2,000 phone is gone.

    • The Samsung GALAXY Fold has a warning about the screen protector read it, It's important.

    • The Samsung GALAXY Fold will break overtime, this means since the protective layer is similar to a screen protector as time passes, the protective layer will wear out and will start peeling and gets to a point where possibly the screen will get damaged. This is out of your control and i recommend keeping the phone away from water, steam etc to prevent any damage!

    So far this is the most i can tell you by hard and if you have any tips to help others, why not share it with everyone here thanks for reading my thread!

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    i wonder if there will be an otterbox defender made for this phone.or something that is waterproof.......lol

    i'm waiting for this tech to get fleshed out more before i shell out that kind of dough.

    also i'm curious as to what kind of things developers will do with the phone, once they gain root.

    I think we need a new generation of foldable screens that can fold without leaving marks, say even after 10,000 cycles.

    Well they've just announced that the launch is delayed (after insisting last week that it would not be).

    Sprint/BoostMobile released a folding smartphone back in like 2008-2009 and it broke very quickly, every one of them. On the other hand, it was a total double screen vs the new Fold but any engineer will tell you that more moving parts = higher probability of breakages.. That device, the BlackBerry's, and the older phones with slide out keyboards are perfect examples

    Quite frankly I wouldn't expect a Galaxy Fold to be water-resistant. From what I've seen so far, this thing is really quite fragile and needs careful attention. They apparently even make you go through a training session before they'll let you have one.

    $2000 is way to much for a cellphone thats so fragile. Its cool but not $2000 cool, at least in my opinion.
