  • Samsung clawing back Galaxy Fold from reviewers amid faulty screen complaints

    Here’s the bottom line. Read it and weep... or throw up in your mouth.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/18/tech/samsung-galaxy-fold-breaking-debacle/index.html

    Headline reads:

    Samsung Galaxy Fold phones are breaking. Here's why it doesn't matter


    Double standard? Naw.
    "Samsung, unlike Apple, doesn't need to get it right the first time,"

    ...quoted source says this, but never explains this. Why does Apple need to get it right the first time, whereas Samsung doesn’t?
    Apple needs to get it right the first time in large part because Apple is so dependent on a handful of products, and so if they have a massive problem like this or the Note 7's problems Apple would be in serious trouble. Google can release a deeply defective Pixel or Samsung can have problems like the one with the Fold, and they have enough other products to fall back on that this isn't an issue.

    Remember this the next time someone is complaining about how Apple isn't "innovative" enough. Apple can't afford to release what are essentially beta versions of their products.

    At €879 for a 64 GB LCD iPhone, I'm going to say it does not bring value. What it does however it bring the price of iPhones higher than last year. Higher and higher. What Apple has actually done in the past two years is of benefit mostly to shareholders. And the spoiled kids of rich people.
    No, it really doesn't bring the price of iPhones higher at least in this country. And no, most people who own Apple products aren't the spoiled kids of rich people.

    I don't know why some people bother posting comments.
