Quite a lot of people went and shot down this idea quickly. Come on guys it's a tablet that could fit in your pocket. Yes I know it's a really small tablet, it looks unusual, looks fragile, it looks like will eat a lot of battery, thicc, expensive, etc. Remember this is still really new, give it some more years to be refined more at functionality, design, and size. It won't be the mainstream electronic, but the market is definitely there. Imagine a 13 inches tablet that you can fold and put it inside your pocket, that portability and versatility reasons are definitely good enough for it to exist. Yes now it's still small, but hey if it won't work then it won't work, the market is honest.

I'm confused, When he went into selfie mode, he was talking but his mouth was that moving? 3:01 Someone please explain this to me, I'm a little slow on figuring that out.

Why won’t anyone give credit to china instead of making fun of them? I’m Chinese and I have to deal with bullying and racism everyday. No on has even mentioned China in the comments.

Why do people want foldable phones? It's so dumb. Look how big and bulky that thing looks, it looks like a wallet. If you fall down with the phone in your pocket, you can easily break that thing while it's in your pocket. I can already tell. They should have at least made a stylus with it

It looks to me that the "screen" should be folded 'inside.' It's current config is just asking for the screen to be damaged ,,, SMH ...

i think that phone would be better sold as a foldable tablet rather than a phone. As it still too huge to be an everyday phone but a tablet that easier to travel around with u would be useful.

I'd like it to fold the other way. This to protect my screen!
Peter Davies

It needs to fold both ways. Otherwise the screen gets all scratched up when you put it in your pocket.

Once Apple rips off this idea then they will start selling - because people are stupid. - they need it to cost 5x the amount.
honkydook 7 soat oldin
Utterly pointless, cool, but pointless. What practical use does a foldable phone or tablet have anyways? There are far better implementations for foldable tech than use as a phone or tablet in this manner. They're still limited by building these things as a modern day phone instead of thinking outside the box. It's a flexible screen afterall, no need to build it into a rigid frame.

For me its uncomfortable... A lot of improvements need to be made. And it takes plenty of Time till the screen changes the background

Looks like my old aunt's oversized wallet when folded. It's like they scrambled to give the foldable screen a use at all costs without considering the bulk of the hardware.

Linus your video was sponsored by D Brand....wonder what kind of case or skin would D Brand have to invent for this phone....also wonder if I'm the only one who cringed each time the screen had to be folded...finally wonder if after use for about a week would I be able to see the display through the cobweb of scratches that something like this would invariably attract....

That look awful ,looks like something made in the 80s along with a filofax .Dont know what it is with pones ,but they got as good as they needed to be a few years back now .All they are doing now is designing in things people dont really want ,just to sell the latest model every year Lets face it , is this years model really any better than lasts .If they want to invent something that makes a phone stand out how about a battery that lasts at least a week ?

Apple 2020: "We're announcing a new product --- the iFoldX! It's state of the art brand new technology that we definitely did first." Then Apple fanboys be buying that shit and accusing the Chinese of copying their technology.

Dbrand robots laughed at me when I asked if there was going to be a skin released for my phone model. They told me it was too unpopular, and they didn't care enough to add it to their portfolio.

You would think that a foldable phone would be super innovative, but looking at this video when using it, the foldable display seems to be more in your way and it does not really look great either.
