Watch a Bunch of Confused People Use the Galaxy Fold for the Very First Time

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is a wildly ambitious device that has the potential to change how phones are made in the future. (I mean, maybe!) And despite all of its flaws, issues, and sky-high price, we still find it really compelling.

But we’re gadget reviewers—professional nerds. To find out what a more ordinary person’s reaction to the completely new gadget concept might be, we asked some of our colleagues who don’t work on our consumer technology coverage for their first impressions. Not all of them were enthusiastic about the potential for bendy phones in the future. Watch above, and read our full review here.

Not to get all fanboy but I honestly can’t understand how people are missing the vision here.

In a single swing, Samsung just gave flexible displays a reason to exist, they’ve given you a phone and tablet in the same device without the need for a dock, and made tablets redundant, all cheaper than what it would take to buy a tablet and phone separately.

Is it perfect? No, but it’s damn good for something that was science fiction a short time ago.

I am floored. I think Samsung is onto something huge, and the common person honestly lacks the ability to look past what they're comfortable with to see it apparently. I hope they keep pushing this thing forward. I honestly think we're looking at the real next evolution of the mobile device. If they can work out the (literal) kinks, and get the price down a bit, they could seriously redefine mobile computing.
