Opinion: Working with a foldable smartphone is a game-changing experience

I wouldn't call a folding screen phone a "cutting edge device experience"... (more like a broken edge experience if you ask me).

A flawed design from the start that is bound to produce even more flaws later.

There are some things that are useful while being innovative.

But if the innovation is just to stand out in the crowd to woo in equally clueless buyers and to make more quick money, it's just plain.... useless.

You are preaching to the wrong choir, this will sell, at the price point they have, and will even be on back-order.

That YOU are not buying it is a completely different thing, and that's great for YOU. Stop talking like yours is the only valid point of view.

Buying it, is not the end of the user's experience. How well it holds up and how functional it is, will determine how good it is. Not, how many buy it.

The success of any product is measured in sales. Even the Note 8 was so successful people didn't want to return it even if the device had a burn down your house risk... of course they had to recall it but they went to sell on ebay and whatnot even after taking them off the shelves. Don't get me wrong, I understand what you are saying, but it seems to work differently.

No, that is how CEO's define success. The end-user/consumer defines success, when after using the product, they will recommend that product to friends & family.

That is why these companies have mass open day deals/sales. Because these people don't know what they are getting in terms of ownership. And their voices are drowned out by people who see shopping as a religion.

Sure man... whatever floats your boat. The best products out there are the niche ones that that weird friend keeps recommending but no one likes... I'm not giving an Economics 101.
