    I went ahead and preordered their limited edition. Initially the ship date was March 6th but it seems to be march 9th now. It's quite expensive and only have me 310 dollars as credit for my samsung s10 plus ceramic. I may just cancel the order or keep both phones.

    I would like to say I'm a power user and I'm afraid opening and closing the Z will become annoying.

    I do see 2 thom browne editions on ebay for astronomical price.

    I don't think they will be available again from what I can see.

    Are they unlocked or still AT&T exclusive?

    Let me double check, but I believe it only came unlocked.

    Edit: I have the unlocked version on order. I don't remember having a choice for carriers or unlocked version. Also to note Thom Browne website no longer has the phone listed, I'm assuming that is it.

    That's cool. I may have been in the market for the Zfold had it not been AT&T only. I'm not sure I could have justified paying the difference for the TB edition. :(

    Still on the fence if I should not cancel the order. Been hearing screens crack when it's cold. Also I can maybe turn around and sell it on ebay they are going for 4I. There is no indication it will be limited edition or only so many made. So the price will be probably drop like a bag of rocks.


    I knew it was going sell fairly quickly. I have a ship date of March 9th. Originally when it was ordered it had a date of the 6th. Im on the fence if I should cancel the order. I spend a lot of time on my phone, the main selling point was the use of duo on the desk by simply folding. I travel a bit so this a big plus when checking in with the family. I don't have to travel with my cell phone stand. I don't really text much, but I do play a lot of pokemon go. I've been trying to find a review someone playing mobile games but I have yet to see one. I'm coming from a s10 plus with ceramic backing that is super nice. They credit me only 310 as the trade in value of the phone. So I may just either keep it or privately sell it I think I can sell for a lot more than 310. Anyway I'm still not sure if I should cancel the order.

    @Rob if I do decide to keep it I will post picks and thoughts. Be warned I'm not much of a reviewer.

    Keep in mind that any review is better than no review. Even if it's 30 minutes straight of brag and awe.. I still love seeing it. Love all reviews and who knows... might help another soul make a better purchase decision.

    I did read Thom Brown's School Days once. But I'm not in the market for an Android flip-phone, I just don't feel the nostalgia for them.

    That, I'm not a big fan of the traditional review. I like to see and hear how regular people use them. I don't have a light studio and camera tripod. I am coming up on my son's baseball season, so I'm hoping to grab some good slo-mo or 8k video of his pitching and hitting mechanics. I'll be incorporating those types of things in my review once I get my 20.

    I'd rather read 5 posts about how real people use it than the 100s of same old, same old tech blogger reviews about this spec this and that spec this and the gamma zoom megapixel what not. When I read something cool written in English, it resonates.

    I agree 100% As much as I love tech and especially smartphones, I'm a carpenter. You can lay all the specs on me you like but until I hear how it performs in real world scenarios I'm simply not impressed. I don't need to know how it does it, I just need to know how well it does it.

    Same as what other said, but while I LOVE MKBHD and Linus and the like, I don't actually care about smooth transitions and fps while gaming. ANd I get a lot out of those reviews still, but you have to complement that with real people. I love hearing how the masses (like me) use these phones and their thoughts.

    For sure if I decide to keep it most definitely will post pics and my take on the Z.

    According to uncrate only 10,000 units will be sold. Not sure if that makes it limited.

    Personally I think Samsung created the shortage of the Z to create a buzz/hype. This way it had the consumer wanted it more since their sold out.

    I mean, it wouldn't be the oddest thing they've done. And after the failed launch of the OF Fold, I don't blame them.

    Now I'm hearing the fold 2 will be out soon. I have about a week to decide to keep or cancel this phone.

    I bet soon is subjective.... If I had to guess *maybe* holiday season... Teh Note launch is usually end of summer time frame? Maybe then, at the earliest.

    @opteron5711 have you decided to keep it? So curious!

    I'm hoping you keep it and report back! There won't be many others that get it, that's for sure...

    Both 1st gen buds and watch are more than adequate? I can see the buds not being much different, but depending on specs, watches could perform drastically different I would think.

    I also preordered one on 2/14. Says it will arrive on 3/9. Keeping mine for sure.

    I would not cancel yours. Sell it for a quick buck if anything.
