Re: Samsung Fold release delayed

I've always been of the opinion that manufacturers are very good at "creating a need" for their latest products, but I genuinely don't see the point of a foldable screen. There's possibly some benefit if it happens to be your only device, but even then, the compromise in quality doesn't justify the price tag, when you could buy two separate devices (probably better specced as well) for the same money.

 

But I'm probably missing the point  thinking

I love Samsung as well @Glory1 but never in a million years would I pay that price for a phone.

 

If you compare that with the price of our new build detached house in 1969 which was £4125, it makes your eyes water!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Mind you, Samsung are inferring they have a massive backlist of pre-orders....rolling eyes


Yeah, of course they have a massive backlist of preorders. Oh wait a pig just flew past my window LOL

To be fair @TallTrees Samsung don't make their money from their phones division. They have a hand in so many other pies, including washing machines, fridges, televisions, blue ray players etc. It's what they earn from these divisions plus others I can't remember that keeps the phones division going.

Yep @TallTrees horrendous would probably be more like it. 

 

Don't get me wrong, charging £1,800 for a phone, even a Samsung phone, is the daftest thing I've heard. But, there again there are fools, with more money than sense, that will pay it. Even if I could afford it, which I can't, why would I want to pay silly money for a phone that opens up into a tablet, when I already have a tablet that is perfect for my needs.

 

Only people who want bragging rights will even consider paying such a staggering sum.
