The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been the buzz in the air for a few days now as the tech giant, Samsung has now allowed top phone reviewers to give their verdict on the device. The Galaxy Fold which is worth $2,000 got reviewed by several phone reviewers and it seems to be a pretty decent device but there seems to be a major problem the phone device.
Phone reviewers who got early access to review Galaxy Fold have complained that the device display got broken just after a few days of usage.
Some of the reports revealed that the Galaxy Fold has a protective screen guard which is likely responsible for the Galaxy Fold screen failure. Popular Youtuber MKBHD tweeted, warning whoever may have gotten the device not to peel the extra layer (screen guard) on the screen has it results in the screens failure.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also published a series of Tweets documenting how the Galaxy Fold screen broke after he peeled out the protective screen guard.
CNBC’s Steve Kovach also tweeted a short clip showing one half of Galaxy Fold gone completely blank “after one day of use.”
The screen failure seems to evolve around the screen protector, following the reports, however, after multiple complaints, the South Korean tech giant has issued an official statement acknowledging the issue and saying that it will thoroughly inspect broken phones in person.
The company has also advised users not to remove the protective layer as it can cause damage to the display.
At the Galaxy Fold launch event, the company said that the foldable phone could easily withstand 200,000 fold. However, the result in real life scenario seems to render the claim “deceptive”.
I don’t know if I should call the Galaxy Fold screen failure a disappointment just yet, for a phone worth of $1,980 to not last a week is something the company needs to to take as top priority, which of course they will, lol. However, if the issues persist, it won’t take much time before Samsung’s innovation turns into a pain in the ass for the company.
