Galaxy Fold is BREAKING – But here’s the truth…

by birtanpublished on January 29, 2021

Oh this is bad this is really really bad one after another after another Samsung Galaxy folds are breaking like absolutely ruined and instead of the typical ha failure kind of video I would actually take a step back and talk about what this actually means for the market what this tells us about Samsung and believe it or not what it tells us about Apple news in a way that doesn't of course you do that subscribe button in turn on notifications so you don't miss the next episode yo what's going on guys welcome back to front page tech of course shutter gives

You all these tech news from one geek that is me to another that is you happy Thursday a lot of drama happening with the Samsung Galaxy fold situation so today but if a different episode we're just going to be talking about that the situation itself so consider this up from page text special report so by now you've probably heard the Galaxy fold has a major major issue and by major issue I mean well when you fold the Galaxy fold sometimes just sometimes it breaks it so far we have three reasons as to why these devices are

Being absolutely ruined from what we've seen from people like mkbhd there's a protective film over the display the protective film looks like a screen protector it is not you can not remove this protective layer well I mean I guess the problem is you can remove it but you really shouldn't some units even show a warning about not removing the film but for some reason not all of them but we got to remember these are units that were given to reviewers probably hand selected units by Samsung to make sure reviewers are showing off the very best Galaxy folds on camera to their

Audiences or in their blogs and I use the best ones very loosely you see taking off this totally not a screen protector will pull at other display adhesives and basically face racks that display into oblivion the other issues involve well folding it people like Steve Kovac from CNBC had the galaxy fold display just died after a day of use and dieter bond from the verge had his displayed just bulge out those of you playing along at home that's three separate issues in three days all of which will leave you with a $2,000 seizure inducer late last night

Samsung released this statement saying a limited number of early galaxy fold samples were provided to media for review we have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided we will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter did you catch that do you see the problem here let me help you out a limited number that right there those are the key words a limited number let's jump to a report from Android Central they say only a few dozen galaxy folds were actually given out so

Obviously it's not even shipping to regular customers yet there are only a few people with this device period and in just about 2 or 3 days a good chunk of those people have had their Galaxy fold totally shipped its own breeches guys girls this is awful like I don't think you truly realize just how bad this could end up being for Samsung obviously when this device starts rolling out to regular customers here shortly we're going to see a lot more of these issues and I don't think we're ready for that I hope I hope

Samsung delays this I hope that they don't just roll out a device that is very very clearly not ready I want to be very clear I'm not happy that this happened just because I've gotten on camera on this very show and said time and time again that I don't think the concept of this is the future that doesn't mean that I think Samsung shouldn't have made it listen in my opinion I think Samsung right now deserves more credit than ever this is amazing technology it's amazing that they made this it's just a real shame that they rushed it they knew it was

Frampt they let us see it at events but never let anyone touch it until now this is why this is the price of being first this is what happens when you knowingly rush a product onto the market that you know is vulnerable this is what happens when you put the history books ahead of your customers but you know what I think they deserve credit for that too listen this is not the end of the story there will be more issues but in my opinion those issues will not take away from the fact that they did this they tried without them making moves like this and taking risks like this for the rest of

The market we as consumers won't end up with better products which brings me to you Samsung Knights take a seat I'm talking to you if we are going to praise Samsung for what they got right then we need to be honest with ourselves about the things they got wrong – no one needs your excuses it's a first-gen product yeah that's not a good excuse and last time I checked this device did not come with a waiver to sign they didn't sell it with a warning they didn't sell it as a beta product spending $2,000 on a consumer product should never be a coin toss

Those of you out there finding every excuse possible for them right now aren't helping and let's be honest kids shall we most of you yelling and running to their defense right now aren't going to spend $2,000 of your own money on your own fancy Galaxy fold that might break you will not put your money where your mouth is so go ahead keep defending them from the comfort of your own bedroom because you don't have two thousand dollars to spend and defending them through tweets and clever YouTube comments is easy and it's free you could go ahead and get in line with the rest

Of the people who unsubscribe from this YouTube channel just because I say the things that you don't agree with because if the person you're watching doesn't go ahead and spew out the same talking points and validate your every opinion you can't handle it and you bail out it's like covering your ears so you can't hear what the bad man is saying Samsung doesn't care about you the way that you care about them they aren't going to reward you for defending them so stop stop making excuses you have got to accept the good and the bad if we cannot be honest about technology's

Flaws and failures when they happen then we don't deserve technology when it is at its best and we keep making excuses for this we don't end up with better products because we keep excusing it away expect better and you'll get better now let's take a look at the bigger picture what does this train wreck actually tell us again like I said this is the price of being first so briefly quick I would like to direct our attention over to Apple because I think this situation I think Samsung just told us more about Apple than Apple will ever be able to tell us about themselves

We are always complaining that Apple isn't first that they don't innovate anymore in my opinion the galaxy phone situation shows us exactly why Apple isn't willing to take the risk in being first they want to do things right and let's be honest they've been slipping on even that part huh Mac look Apple isn't interested and can't afford some major PR nightmare like this their demographic just won't put up with it I mean we all remember Ben gate don't wait so when you've tested a product over and over again and you know it's not gonna go the

Way you want it to go when you roll it out to customers don't roll it out we just saw that with air power listen just because we don't necessarily see all of it it doesn't mean that Apple and a lot of other companies in the industry are not working on innovative technology I mean we already know that Apple is working on similar stuff we know they're working on a foldable phone the difference is that they aren't willing to let us see their failures when the technology isn't ready they want to innovate behind closed doors and aren't willing to let the public watch them

Trip up Samsung though is willing to do that the risk is worth it because even when she does hit the fan they can still say they tried and you know what that's more than most companies can say
