Second Folding-Screen Phone... Yes? No?

Second Folding-Screen Phone... Yes? No?
This is yet another attempt at a folding phone about
to be released after the failure of the Samsung...

The Royole FlexPai which you can purchase HERE.

There's a hands-on review HERE, which makes it seem
a bit of a mixed bag—as far as its physical practicality goes.

Its major issue as I see it is the longevity of the hinging
mechanism, and obviously the surface of the screen.  As
it's constantly facing "outwards" it's sure to suffer from
impacts and scratches—as it won't carry Gorilla glass. Its
thickness is another major black mark, particularly as it'll
absolutely need a firm protective case.

Certainly not for me at sixteen hundred bucks.      Thumbsdown

I'd love to see something like that - working properly of course.

Here in Australia, Samsung has released its revised folding-screen phone; the imaginatively-named [sic ] Galaxy Fold.

The only problem I see?  Its RRP of AU$3,000.....  me falling on floor, laughing uncontrollably.

Quote:Samsung’s vice president of framework R & D group in the mobile division Sally Jeong said the Fold eliminates
the need to own another device. “Before the development of the Galaxy Fold, I had a smartphone and a tablet,
but the combination of the two created an entirely new experience,” she said. “The larger screen completely
changed things like watching movies, checking email and catching up on the news, to the point that I could no
longer be satisfied with a smaller screen.”

Realistically, who's gonna watch a 70mm movie on a fucking mobile phone screen?  And does this stupid woman
really "catch up on the news" on her phone?  Seriously?      I'm thinking she needs to get a life.

I take a tablet when I'm going to be in the hospital for a while. I watch movies and Youtubes on it. My brain adjusts to the screen size easily. If I had a tablet that doubled as a cell phone I'd be pleased, but not enough to pay extra for one. Here at home I have two 27" monitors on my desk and a 40" TV hard by the one on the right. Size doesn't matter.

I have no use for one. Don't see what it's useful for.

We have tablets in umpteen different sizes, cell phones with and without screens, etc.

The idea seems to be to appeal to the space conscious.  But it's early days.  I'll wait for when I can fold it like kleenex before I go for one.

As a aux. TV screen for the yard apes in the back seat, for one. Belly TV for the sick room. Attached to a kitchen cabinet so the cook can get drunk with Julia.

I had discussion with Patrick about formatting for Hyperwar. At one point he said "If we do it that way it will fit the screen better." I replied "your cell phone screen or my 27" monitor?"

Can it fold up so it fits into a pocket better than the big ole phones that are so popular now?   I see women with these big huge phones barely fitting in the pockets of blue jeans.  

Phones have gotten too big for their britches.  <--- tee-hee....kind of a silly joke there.

Well, Don't have a need for it . I have a tablet which covers most things .

I resisted getting a mobile phone for years. Then for about 5 years, I had one which was a phone and could send texts. Used only for emergencies; car breaks down, a fall down at home that kind of things. I REALLY didn't want to be that available. So I refused to tell anyone my number.

I began to thaw with a Samsung mimi about three years ago.It was nifty.


THEN a mate told me about KOGAN*; unlocked, 5 inch screen. Features normally found in a $600 phone. It was $200. A 12 month prepaid plan was $146, all calls and texts included. But only 6GB of data (which I have never used)

The phone carrier is Vodaphone.

My phone is in its third year. Still love it. Use it instead of my LAN line. It also has an excellent camera . I have VOIP for emergencies. Cost is $1.67 a month, plus calls,



Thinking of buying a Huawei next time .



*There's this Aussie bloke called 'Kogan'. He buys generic Chinese tech and sticks his name on it. At present he is the largest retailer of TV's in Australia. My phone is an AGORA 8 Plus.

Did you see the way he opened it?

OMG, this thang gonna break.

That would also be my thought every time I attempted to unfold it.

Why tho
"If a person gave away your body to some passerby, you’d be furious. Yet, you hand over your mind to anyone who comes along, so they may abuse you, leaving it disturbed and troubled — have you no shame in that?"

Um...

When I'm in the hospital I often take a laptop, a 9.2 inch tablet, and a cell phone. I watch videos on all of them without struggles.

I just obtained a new Samsung Tab A 10.1 tablet. Just the thing for sitting in a doctor's waiting room. Samsung has a tablet that also has a phone ability. This has a 10 hour battery life, which beats my old Dell tablet with it's pathetic 2 hour battery life. I cannot stuff it in a pocket, but I have a bag I take to such outings. This one has Android Pie with Samsung's UI, it is complex as hell. I also have an old Dell laptop about to get upgraded with memory so I can run a decent Linux system on it. It is a very slow CPU, but I have it already. I have no cell phone.

I gave up on tablets and went to a netbook for fluffy surfing. I like the keyboard option.
