Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Fold

Galaxy Fold: Samsung's foldable phone is one of the most exciting devices we've seen
Source: CNet English
The last two weeks have been incredible for phones. Life-changing, even. First, Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold, its first foldable phone. Then, Huawei let us go hands-on with its foldable Mate X, which made the foldable phone concept so much more real. But for me, the Galaxy Fold is still the one that started it all, and the one that has me so intrigued. It didn't help that the only real-life glimpse we got of it was behind exceptionally reflective glass.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
