honestly, this is the most efficient way of doing a folding phone. Samsung's approach is kinda wasteful with 3 screens when at a time you need at most 2. this formfactor is much efficient as they need much less hardware. but i think the most efficient might be a rollable phone.

I work in China and I can tell you directly that this phone has terrible software lag there is a lot of lag, Also the screen and the android version they use makes me feel like I'm using a Samsung Galaxy 8, Seems they cut a lot of costs in the screen pixel graphics. You'll have to try it yourself and feel it out but trust me there's a lot of lag. I've been using the Samsung fold1 and it's the greatest phone I've used for a year haven't had any problems that been mentioned all over USposts. I like using the Samsung Fold1 soooooo much, when folded you can use 1 hand and your thumb to type, my hand remembered the old Nokia phones that allowed use to type with 1 hand, Samsung fold2 still can but too wide, again 1 year with my Samsung Fold1 absolutely no problems or screen damage 😀

my pitch ... make screen fexible ONLY in areas where its being bent ... the rest can be hard as regular screen ...

You should take their technology seriously. The flex oled really has a durability problem. Royole might be the answer. Even in China, every tech cynical is laughing at them. But time will prove.

Outer Folding might not be the best way. Yet, for companies like Huawei and Royaole, Outer Folding is the only way since their technology limits them to Outer Folding. They just can't do inside folding phone due to Limited Technologies.

That hinge would probably fit perfectly with the z fold if it didn't make any creaking sounds

Genuine question, is it possible that the screen for folding phones to be made out of glass? And the part where you fold it is made from plastic? Like partially glass and plastic. If it is possible then it would have much better protection for the screen

Alternate formfactors are simply devices looking for an audience. I asked my rep at the carrier store who sells the Galaxy Fold 2 and the Razr fold how many they sell of them...None.

I actually like Huawei's interpretation, the best. I like that the outer display is more of a practical form factor, but I don't like that it's always exposed. The Z Fold 3 will be my next, primary device, tho. I just wish it had more of an 18:9 ratio, when closed.

Hey, I think that we have to respect their try to make a better phone. Don't buy the phone, if the cracking sound is problem for you, but don't say of somebody how to spend his time and money.

The cicada's nanopillar structure on their wings also happen on copper, that's why it's antibacterial.

I don't get it - why don't they just make an inner screen folding phone with two regular screens that go edge to edge when opened up? I think a sharp cornered kind of edge display - perhaps with some prism peice covering the gap, would be better to use and be a lot less fragile than a soft film.

The galaxy Fold style is my cup of tea. Just the idea of having basically a foldable tablet it awesome. For some it would replace two devices.

At the moment form factor is all about being first and selling stuff - but ultimately it will be about application. That's when it will pay off.

Folding on the outside does prevent the issue of debris getting inside the fold and messing up the screen, we just need more durable folding screens. In that sense, this phone is ahead of it's time. I would like to see them keep working on it though, but maybe only as a concept.

Nah. You have to review the Mate X. The flex Pi is bottom barrel stuff. This is a goofy take in my opinion.
babypj Month ago
The folding trend is really stupid. It makes almost no sense for a phone. Phone should be easily carried around: the double thickness makes it worse than almost every available alternative. You want to watch a bigger screen? Get a tablet. Most of the time you don’t need the big screen unless you live your life at home.

I didn't like the fold out Idea, but I don't mind it now. Of course, it would need to get a bit thinner and protection is a must. But when it is folded you get 2 screens, your main cameras are selfie camera too, which is good. You can use it one handed like a normal phone and they would save on the price of a second screen, bringing the price down than a more common inward fold like Samsung's fold. If they get the protection done I wouldn't mind this at all.
