    If you havent been aware that the newly fixed version of the fold is kinda terrible if you llok at the video below by "JerryRigsEverything" you will see why its a terrible device to take outdoors:



    Now if you really watched the video you know what i mean by its terrible if this happens to your device, to me its more to be used at hime then out doors thats if you drop it in dirt etc.

    It's a prototype being sold to beta testers, sorry "early adopters".

    Give it a couple of generations and it may be interesting. Right now I'd rather have that Microsoft device (2 separate displays and a hinge), expect that's not going to be released for more than a year. ;)

    Haha, great vid. First time I've watched one of these tear downs, it did make me grimace as he was scrapping the Stanley knife down the sides of the phone. :oops:

    Still, I guess not many phone would like their screen poked with a Stanley knife. Especially one with a soft screen. :p

    Ah, that was no issue. My S8+ had a screen protector that was soft like that; only you couldn't mark it.

    I found it quite tactful. Lol :D

    For a bit there I thought Samsung started an Early Adopter program and sent you one @Cyberdev.
