For a few days Samsung Electronics has sent review units of the Galaxy Fold smartphone to journalists, bloggers and YouTubers to try it out and give their opinion in view of its official release originally only in America on April 26th.
So people began to test and the first posts were dirtiams, with nice photos in the instagram, boomerang video with the open-close Galaxy Fold and tidy hands-on video on YouTube. They did not, however, spend 2-3 days and started the problems.
Several of Samsung Galaxy Fold’s hands up in twitter and other social media means that the screen has a problem in the middle and the fold, causing the mobile to become obsolete.
There is no problem with the sophisticated mechanism built by Samsung and allows the screen to bend, the problem with the protective film that covers the screen and should not be removed, but some have taken it off.
Samsung officially replied:
A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.
Separately, some reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure that this information is clearly delivered to our customers.
