Nope, I think its ludicrous. $2k-2.6K for a phone? a gimmick that marginally increases the size? handicap the phone with the potential to have very poor battery life, intensely buggy software and a hinge that will add another high-cost failure mode? who the hell were these made for?Am I the only one who couldn't care less about these foldable phones? Then again I don't care about phones in general and buy one iPhone every 4-5 years when iOS stops updating. I am still on a 6S Plus and don't feel like I am missing something.....I hate small screens for anything serious though..
I will say I think Huawei's implementation looks considerably more elegant that Samsung's. Although neither looks enticing to purchase.
I too still have a 6S+, but next year I need to upgrade but will most likely be looking at the X or the XR if I can get them for "general phone costs" other wise we might be getting the 8's. Too bad if that happens, really wanted FaceID.
