    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.

    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

    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.

    Best bet is to wait until they become available with somewhere like officeworks and do a price match with an online place like becextech.
