What a balls up. So undoubtedly some people are going to proceed with the purchase of a phone with known major issues. Nutcases. Unless they think it will be some sort of collectors item.
I assume they will still come with a warranty and samsung will have to fix them when/if issues arrive.
That will be interesting to see how they handle. What sort of warranty can you reasonably expect on a device that has been recalled and sales cancelled? I guess they have to offer something given they're allowing the sale to proceed. Will be interesting seeing what the failure rate is like among the die-hards. Numbers will be anecdotal only of course, samsung won't want to say how it goes for them.
I'd say this, particular the Museum of Failure.
I'd buy it if I thought it would be worth a pretty penny in a few years
Best Buy are cancelling all preorders. Looks like they're trying to make a loss now than later for if it was to turn into a bigger fiasco.
A working sample might be.
You mean one without the issue?
Could be almost as sought after as one of the original Galaxy Note 7s...
so the Samsung Fold 2 just recently got announced
looks to have solved a number of issues with the first one, and the robustness of the first one seems to be ok
Just wish it wasn't stupidly priced
What's the local pricing?
no idea but it is 2K USD in the states
Yah is be interested if I could get a 50% off voucher lol..
yeah if it was 1500 AUD i would buy it without question at launch
Gimmicky, I just don't see it taking off.
its too expensive right now ... looking around 3k LOL ... if it ever becomes mainstream, i think the demand would be huge... i'd definitely get one if it wasnt 3k.
if i could get one for $2k AUD i'd jump on one of the z fold 2s in a heartbeat...still a bit pricey now though.
Best bet is to wait until they become available with somewhere like officeworks and do a price match with an online place like becextech.
The razr that folds is what i'd get. Fucking exxy though
