2 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

Samsung's Galaxy Fold can handle over 200,000 folds, but apparently that is not the case. Within 48 hours of giving the device to numerous media outlets, a flood of reports have come out about the screen breaking, and breaking in different ways. Not a good look for Samsung.
The Galaxy Fold is a first-generation smartphone, it is a brand new form-factor and it is innovative to a degree. But the issues that we are seeing with the Galaxy Fold, less than 48 hours into users actually being able to use it, is pretty astonishing. And very bad.

Samsung this week provided reviewers with Galaxy Fold devices for some hands-on time, and it appears the folding smartphone may be suffering from some serious flaws. Three of the reviewers who received a Galaxy Fold have already experienced failures, all of which focus on the display.
The Verge 's Dieter Bohn says that his Galaxy Fold device broke after a random bulge appeared on the display, perhaps from a piece of debris that had gotten into the hinge. The debris, or whatever the bulge was, pressed into the display hard enough to break it.
