Samsung Galaxy Fold: The Interesting Things
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has had an eventful week, to say the least. Pre-orders finally opened up and Samsung allowed reviewers to actually touch the device for the first time. Shortly after, some bad news started trickling in as several reviewers had major display issues. Pocketnow’s Jaime Rivera has the Galaxy Fold and, thankfully, he has not had any of those issues. He shared his first impressions in the video below.
Jaime was surprised at how the set-up process is just like any other phone, and the One UI experience is very familiar. When closed, he says it does really feel like two phones stacked on top of each other and it’s hard to put in a pocket. Dark Mode makes the crease look more obvious, but it’s not something that bothers him. App Continuity works well from outside to inside but can struggle when going from inside to outside. Check out the video below to hear more about Jaimie’s first thoughts.
