Early adopters are valuable, indeed.
I love the idea of a folding phone. I could use the bigger real-estate.
You now replace my kindle!
I can actually RDP and do something.
And honestly, for that price, if it replaces a small portable laptop, and a kindle, and I carry it as a phone, and the folding screen helps prevent it from breaking, but I can answer it without opening it...
I am interested in it. YET, I am NOT an early adopter. I keep my cell phones until they die. I did have a Palm device and a Treo! My latest samsung S5 has a broken power button, and I use software to turn it off... I think it has another 2-3 years in it.
By then, I will be in the market for a potential flip screen, and they should have the bugs worked out.
My bigger concern is the wear factor. This feels like something (Like Pergo Floors) that look great until 10 years later and the wear becomes excessive. In this case, it may only have a 2-3 year lifespan, and at that rate... Not interested. My laptop is 6 years old, going on 7. 32GB, dual SSD icore7. No need to upgrade. Buy big, and keep it a long time. Or by cheap and buy often!
A Galaxy fold? I didn't even know they lived in herds....

Yeah, this is not marketed towards me since I don't really like phones. I've got a gen 1 Moto E which cost me $59 (saw later on sale for $29). It makes phone calls just fine and runs the couple Apps I use with no problems.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I may be in the minority here, but I just wanted to share that it's awesome working with bright devs and managers who instinctively "get it". I love the culture of my (not so) little company, where the CTO and every dev manager started out in the trenches, writing code for decades before moving up the food chain.
