    I won't lie. I want one. That thing is sweet. Yes yes, 1st Gen, issues exists and so forth, but man that thing is the future. Sadly, I just can't spend away $1,980.

    Who is getting one here?

    I don't think you'll get much action in the Pixel threads as far as someone buying one. Personally, I wouldn't touch it even for half the price. Maybe 3rd or 4th gen if it survives.

    For me:
    It's too bulky when folded.
    The external display is too small.
    The internal display is hideous including the crease and notch
    I don't trust the hinge design as far as particulate entry.
    The plastic display is too delicate.

    Where are all the notch haters on this one? People complain the iPhone and Pixel notches and suddenly the mother of all notches is released and all we hear are crickets.

    Nah, I'm not even somewhat interested. I wouldn't use it as my daily phone or even as a backup. It's ugly, the form factor seems awkward for convenient portability and case options are very limited. I'd also be concerned about durability.

    I always love new tech , but think the hinge needs to be better , I'd prefer and would've liked if you could slide out that extra screen from the side of the device

    I definitely would love to pick up but not sure if I'm willing to drop $2200 after tax for a first gen product. Worried about the hinge and screen durability in general. And good luck with Samsung crappy customer service if anything goes wrong with your $2k phone.

    You'd see the uproar if the notch was ported over to the s or note series.

    Definite pass for me, but I think the tech advancement is great! Pushing things forward like this is ambitious.

    So is it OK on a 2000 Xperimental device?

    Let's hope!! They need to do better with the cameras too which is ironic because they did set the standard at one point.

    Yeah I think they will. I hear rumors they are concentrating on that as a highlight so we see what happens.

    Pretty much every company releases some products that haven't been perfected. Apple isn't any different.

    Yes.... exactly. They may not do it for awhile but when they do I predict it will be better than what we have seen so far.

    While this true , this is straight out with demos for youtubers before in hands of customers, Apple dont roll like that.

    I think folks here are being tough on Samsung. Companies take immense amount of risk when innovating like this. They are making history and that comes at a price. They will ultimately perfect this, it's just not gonna happen on Gen 1 of foldable phones.

    I think part of the point is that by the time Apple decides to go this route the tech will be improved. Apple doesn't innovate much as of late.

    I guess I have a different view point. I don't see anyone being tough on Samsung. I see a lot of people with fair expectations of what it should be as opposed to what it is. When it comes to new technology sometimes being first isn't the best thing to be.
