Engadget Review

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is one of those devices that inspires adoration and annoyance at the same time. Its foldable design means you can carry around a tablet in your pocket and get plenty of work done along the way. Even after our testing was complete, we still found the Fold’s power and flexibility nothing short of intoxicating. As a commercial product, though, it leaves much to be desired. While closed, it’s chunky and clumsy, and we have serious concerns about how well its main screen will hold up over time. The Galaxy Fold offers a glimpse at the future of smartphones, but almost no one should consider buying one.

A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget
