  • My biggest issue with these as a possible future standard is that you can't put a tanky ass otterbox defender case on it. I'm rough and clumsy so I don't like to have anything less than those cases. I know this is basically irrelevant because they always make design decisions based on what a majority of people do and most people don't use bulky cases. It's my biggest complaint about modern electronics: only really catering to the mass market and ignoring any concern that's even slightly niche. It was fine in past years when things were always an upgrade but with bs like moving to Bluetooth for everything it's becoming a downgrade in some cases.

  • Foldable phones TO ME, are a flash in the pan. I have ZERO interest in obtaining one. The future is rollables for this platform of "phablets" unless they really F the pooch on them. And unless the kingdoms of Samsung and Google don't pull their heads out of their a$$'$ I will never drop $2000 on ANY phone..... And I don't think I'm alone in this way of thinking. So, that's my two cents. I think rollables are the way to go. Am I alone ? What do you and your followers think ? Please let me know if I am crazy or my hypothesis holds water. Stay safe and healthy everybody.

  • i actually have this phone and absolutely love it. at first i was like this is just too much. typical reaction to a new concept of a device (yes i dont say there arent same concepts but this looks more stable and slate) just needs to get used to though. battery life is good if you turn on adaptive battery consumption and it doesnt hurt my notifications or oher processes. yes some apps are not 100 percent compatibile but on the other side of the coin, it really makes a difference when u want to read a book or watch a movie etc. gaming is good but can be better. no lags or jittering but the screen seems a bit too big in game and sometimes its hard to reach to some buttons like in pupg. However, its a wonderful experience nonetheless.

  • Ladies and Gentleman, do you remember CURVED SCREENS? IMHO Samsung is heading towards another BLIND ALLEY with those foldables. I've never even considered buying a curved TV, but Samsung tried to push them really REALLY hard. Now the curved screens are pretty much GONE... and Samsung is trying to push a new gimmick -- foldable phones. The news is that they gonna kill the NOTE line and realease more foldables next year. But I'm saying: IT WON'T WORK! Of course, I might be wrong (I'm just a dumb Polack xD), but I give Samsung even LESS CHANCE with foldables (than with curved TVs). They're too expensive (it will be difficult to lower the cost with their 2 SCREENS) and NOBODY SANE is going to pay $1000+ for a low/mid range foldable device. ROLLABLE phones have a higher chance for becoming mainstream...

  • Hard pass on this way too expensive pablet. I have been a Note user from the beginning, and I suppose if they stop making them I'll use my 20 Ultra until it turns into a paperweight. 😂 I think the thing I miss the most is the ability to use my phone as a remote for my TV. I loved that my Note 8 did that. 😂

He really makes quality content yesterday alone he got 50k new subscriber as the internet is banding together to help him out. The only thing he needs is a proper setup. Maybe LTT could help out there and hook him up with proper equipment. It would be nice if this post could get some traction so the right people read this.

  • Preorderd my Z Fold 2 and received it day one. Been several weeks of using it and boy am I disappointed with the end result of this review. However, I can't say I am surprised. After watching a lot of Linus' reviews, I didn't see him liking the phone from the get go. No hate here though and I respect his opinions. The only thing is, I do have full-screen Instagram and no notification bugs. In fact my Z Fold 2 has preformed exceptionally well. I won't try to over sell it though. There's a lot of pessimist out there that think this phone is junk and shit, people still think iPhone are cool. Wouldn't be worth arguing. Love my Z Fold 2 nonetheless and nothing will change my mind

  • Foldable smart phones are literally the DUMBEST IDEA EVER! hey how bout you pay a ridiculously high price for a phone with a BUILT-IN weak spot! I'm more on board with the oppo x rollable screen but tbh it's all totally retarded! I have a regular bar style smart phone and it does EVERYTHING I could ever ask! Why are they trying to reinvent the wheel? Stupid ideas for STUPID PEOPLE who are ok with paying STUPID prices!😠👎

Like okay if you want to i dunno scan your whole house in 3D or play VR with haptics + stream etc etc.. you might need a cloud computer. But having a normal sized device that can transform to a productivity device when you need it is just awesome. I love computers, laptops, building and upgrading them but it's not the way forward. I really damn like those little concepts phones !

  • Excellent on-air presence. As a person who used to hire news anchors, I would hire you. If you were a commercial news anchor, you would have to clean up, of course. But then you're pitching to a different demographic and have assumed the look that would appeal to that demo -- the "I've been stuck in JFK airport during a snow storm for three days sleeping on the benches" look. That stipulated, you take command of the TV screen, which is what you look for when you're trying to hire news readers. In addition, you're an excellent writer. Indeed, the writing is exceptional. So is the pacing of the video. Congratulations.
