    Galaxy Fold review: A lot of money for a prototype

    Click. Smack. Click. Smack. Click. Smack. I feel bad for the people in my life, because everywhere I've been for the past week, the sounds of opening and closing Samsung's Galaxy Fold have followed. Even if you're not prone to fidgeting, this $1,980 smartphone will do that to you. It might not be the first commercially available foldable device , but it is the first one from a company with the global influence to make foldable phones a reality for everyone. And it's a lot of fun to open and close endlessly. Click. Smack. Click. Smack. The Galaxy Fold is far more than just a party trick though: It contains multitudes. The Fold represents a new way of thinking about what modern phones should be able to do. It's an impressive technical achievement. Perhaps more than anything, though, it's a fragile, uneven first step down a path toward a new kind of personal computing. That's a mild way of saying that the Fold is profoundly cool but that almost no one should actually consider buying one. If you do, you're basically agreeing to be Samsung's guinea pig as it tries to figure out how to make this new kind of device truly valuable. At this point, the Galaxy Fold is a glorified bit of beta hardware. But even with all of its compromises, it offers a glimpse of a future that -- for me, anyway -- can't come soon enough.

    Samsung's Reputation Founders on Rush for Lead in Folding Phones

    Samsung Electronics Co. on Tuesday scrapped what was to have been a crowning achievement, the launch of the world’s first mass-produced foldable smartphone. Instead of trumpeting its April 26 return to the forefront of global consumer electronics, the tech giant is now investigating how test versions of the $1,980 Galaxy Fold developed problems -- including screen failures -- after mere days of use.

    Samsung Can Learn From Apple That Boring Beats Sexy

    Unfortunately, Samsung has simply proven that it can’t actually do foldable phones after all. This poor product execution comes a little more than two years after the release of the exploding Galaxy Note 7, a device that earned the rare honor of being banned by name from airlines around the world. As predicted, consumers forgave Samsung and were more than willing to revisit the brand after that dust had settled. Another smartphone product failure would be costly, and as my colleague Alex Webb wrote last week, could poison consumer appetite for foldable phones overall.

    Samsung delays shipping its $2,000 folding smartphone. Analysts say that hurts the brand

    Samsung's decision to delay the release of the nearly $2,000 foldable phone will hurt its brand reputation in the short term, but the flagging smartphone industry is still betting on the tech giant to produce a winner, analysts say. The South Korean electronics firm was supposed to launch its Galaxy Fold smartphone on April 26, but pushed that date back after some reviewers said their testing units were faulty. Samsung's push to get the Galaxy Fold in the hands of customers feels a "little bit rushed," according to Bob O'Donnell, president, founder and chief analyst at Technalysis Research.

About 50 units of the $1,980 foldable device had been sent for review to journalists, analysts and bloggers in the United States ahead of a planned April 26 launch, Moorhead said. Four units sent to journalists and a YouTube personality contained problems, according to their posts on Twitter.
