    Now that you mention it a screen protector could damage the screen trying to take it off.
    I seem to recall Samsung specifically saying not to put screen protectors on screen. Not sure about front screen

    The way I see it. It the screen protector takes and real damage and needs to be changed it saved the actual screen and is worth the small chance of screen damage on removal, considering if there wasn't an extra protector I'd be considering screen replacement anyways. I've been using a tpu protector on my hauwei p30 pro since I've received it. Changed it a couple times already and upon removal it's more like removing a non adhesive static cling window sticker. It comes off super easy without any hard pulling or stretching of the film.

    The one thing that disappoints me with the Fold (durability stuff aside) is how underwhelming that front display looks.

    There's just SO much "wasted" space above and underneath it.

    At 4.6", it's about as big as my KEY2's display (although of course much nicer in quality).

    Personally I think it would have been cool to push that 4.6" screen up a bit and add a physical keyboard underneath it as it would seem to add more functionality than just the dead space.

    Aside from that, it's a huge breathe of fresh air in an era where the only dominating form factor is the solid state slab of glass.

    I got to see a display model at an AT&T store yesterday. It was up and running and fully functional. Mine is arriving today and I can hardly wait! Everything I saw yesterday makes me think that this is gonna be a wonderful phone to have!

    How are you liking it so far? I feel like mine is the best phone I've ever possessed, and that's a long list. My note 10+ was great, but the Fold is on another level; definitely not regretting the purchase!

    Good idea....Samsung should probably design something with low adhesion that they stand behind as opposed to some third party solutions that people might try and cause problems.

    I like the Huawei design better aesthetically because it folds out but that is probably a durability nightmare.

    I am loving this phone! It's great for my needs. Best phone I've ever had too. I was at the AT&T store today. They have had one on display up there since September 27th. I thought I would check in on it and see how it looked after the public had played with it. I asked if it was still the same phone and the Rep told me it was still the same phone, they only got one display model. It had a lot of finger prints on it but no scratches or damage that I could see. And there is also this video:

    Very happy with this phone so far!

    If the same people that call it awesome now come back in a few months and still confirm that their Fold is in great condition with zero screen/mechanism defects after having constantly been pulled in/out of pockets etc, it would surely add confidence in this thing.

    You're right, it's the honeymoon stage now.

    I have the fold too

    And i love it and its such a pleasure to use
    However, my OCD will not let me keep it as the crease in the display is bothering me too much

    Yes it is not visible sometimes, bit it is there

    The phone is cool as heck, and probably more futuristic then holding the original iPhone in 2007

    I absolutely love my fold but I'll likely be returning it as well because I'm crazy OCD about my phones also. The crease doesn't bother me so much but I've been playing call of duty on it alot and I've discovered indentions from my fingernails even though I've been really careful with it. They dont really affect usage and aren't really noticeable unless held at the right angle in bright lighting with the screen off but once you see them you can't stop thinking about them being on your $2k phone.

    Going to be hard to return this one because it is such a game changing piece of technology but that's the way I'm leaning right now.

    Agreed, at the end of the day, the screen will not withstand the test of time. I feel like this is a great second “show off “ device.

    This is disappointing to hear. Those indentations would drive me crazy if i spent 2k on the thing. I would be conflicted as well but that's a deal breaker for me. That just can't happen.

    Hope you enjoy the Samsung galaxy fold.

    I has a fever for one.

    I traded in my pixel 3 xl at Best Buy and got a Note 10 + unlocked for 900.00 including tax.

    So far, I'm happy with the Note 10 + , and the specs.
    Not saying I wouldnt like to play with a fold.
    Just dont want to play with one.

    Looking forward to hearing more about it from you.
    Dont forget about us dude.

    Checking in. So far everything is good with my Fold. No scratches or nicks. I have everything set up that I like on it. And I'm just enjoying it a lot! It's not particularly difficult to care for as I use phones. No one has noticed it or asked about it. Which is fine with me. I didn't buy it to get attention. I bought it because I thought it would suit my needs. And it has very well. So I'm just enjoying it at this point. Hope everyone else is too!
