This makes me appreciate my $18 ZTE Android 7 phone even more.Still, I worry that many buyers won’t be able to resist picking at it, or it will come off over time due to normal wear and tear. Since there is a gap between the protector and the edge of the screen, dust and dirt speckles get stuck around the edges.
“Consumers who notice that the protective layer is not integrated on the display should contact Samsung customer care at 1-800-SAMSUNG as soon as possible to avoid any additional damage to the display,” said the spokeswoman.
Even then, I have to ask: Why in the world is a $2,000 glamour phone held together by a flimsy piece of plastic? The feeling of cheapness is as great a sin. Why didn’t Samsung integrate this apparently necessary protective layer better into the body of the phone? (The company’s answer: It makes the phone easier to service. There’s a vote of confidence!)
By having designed and built it well? That’s how things are built that work compared to things that don’t.So how will the Huawei with its exposed screen be any better? I can see that phone's screen becoming unreadable in a very short amount of time from taking it in and out of one's pocket.
We’re surprised they broke in a single day. Review units seeded to reviewers to get the good word out. A day’s use can’t possibly constitute “enough” to be unsurprised it broke from long term use.Can't believe anyone's surprised a foldable screen breaks. If you flex anything enough it'll break.
That was quick. This would go down in history as one of the biggest product failures of all time -- worse than New Coke or the Microsoft Zune.Word on the street is that Samsung is going to cancel the entire project.
Nah. New Coke was a century old company attempting to change the best known and beloved drink in the world, and completely failing. It was a profound failure cutting to the soul of the Coca Cola company.That was quick. This would go down in history as one of the biggest product failures of all time -- worse than New Coke or the Microsoft Zune.
