    The state of foldable phones and displays is at a great point. People want thin and light with amazing battery life and some want headphones jacks and expandable storage and people need to realize you can’t have it all. You can’t expect a plastic display to fold like paper and be durable for long periods of time like regular not foldable displays are. They’ve come a long way with foldable displays but how about we worry about the basics before we worry bout folding a phone in half and having it all nice and flat while having no bezels and 2 day battery life.

    Please review the Mate X. You didn't mention it MKBHD. These others dont seem to compare. Though I am not impressed by folding phones and don't see the need for them, I think that these first phones are the beginning to get them ready. Trial and error. Samsung's Fold looks like crap honestly, imho.

    Best current use case: stop trying to make a foldable phone that turns into a tablet. Simplify the use case, and simply make it a tablet that can be easily pocketed. Jumps right over the immature OS issue, gives use cases time to catch up, and is a notable size improvement over the current lack of “pocketability” despite the still existing thick Z-axis fold.

    MKBHD is right. Im fascinated of foldable screen tech but im not gonna buy it yet. It is not really flat when folded making it not cool. You also put a pressure on the screen when folding the device. Doing it few times a day can damage the screen. Dont forget this is the first gen foldable devices, a lot of things need to fix still. The ridiculous price also hinders people to buy it.

    Folding phones are to get a tablet and a phone in one device. It's one device that is both and can save you money. Another reason is so you can carry a tablet in a phone size. That's very cool. The third reason is for movies. Nobody wants to watch a movie on a tiny screen and now you can with the larger screen.

    Anyone saying you would not need one... this is in very early stage of development. Definitely not worth buying yet unless you really love gimmicks... but just wait 5 years and see how much they will be improved. Maybe in 10-15 years we could have those Westworld style tablet/phones. A phone that can expand seamlessly to tablet size and fit in your jeans pocket. Would definitely buy one of those. Also developing new tech can lead to many other new designs. Smartphones have been basically the same last 10 years, all they did is increase screen size and ad some better hardware and software, but think back another 10 years, Nokia 3310 was new back then. In 20 years we are going to laugh at current phone designs and how we use them, at least I hope so

    The companies are doing it all wrong..... What can't it be just a thin piece being wrapped around your phone that you can detach to extend... It wouldn't have to be that big, and bend radius is always welcomed. This is because it would avoid stress concentrations as well as increase the no. of loading cycles. Dammit I want to design a phone....

    Like you said, I could see how foldable phones could be something worth having: If I could fold my iPhone X and render it half the size, it would fit in my pocket better. But I don’t see why else I would want a foldable phone.
