Second half of the video makes it sound like the infinity edge no bezel crap is actually useful. It makes a fragile phone that's hard and uncomfortable to hold but looks good in an ad. Bezel-less phones are unpractical. Atleast the folding thing could be practical for a tablet that folds for convenience, I guess. Samsung could make a note 4 with modern specs and it would be the best modern phones. Samsung is experimenting with flashy gimmicks rather than making a solid practical phones.

I can understand if the screen folded inward, but it folds outward. Inward folding would protect the screen.

If you are a kind of professional who needs to be connected most of the time, checking emails and looking over some files/documents to respond accordingly, frankly the only choice is a small laptop because a phone is too small to look over documents. That means you would need to carry a bag with you all the time. A foldable device however eliminates the need to have a bag with you whenever you are not stationary. Have you ever heard people having this common conversation on the phone as an example: "Hey Mark, can you take a look at this document (word or Excel...) and let me know what you think?" and you are sitting in a cab or train etc. So what do you do? You take out your laptop to look at the document and then respond either by tethering your phone to the laptop or just responding to the email on your phone. So you ask why do we need a device like this? Because it eliminates all that hassle.

Samsung can sell a product like this but they weren't the ones to first design it or try sell it. Last year I was looking at phone rare ones and there was this small company who actually been doing the bend or fold phones for a few years once they felt the prototype was good enough they were trying to sell their products to big companies like apple and Samsung but none of them were interested a couple years ago I was actually considering buying one but because I would have had to buy the product from China from a smaller company it isn't as convertible to exchange networks for Australia base so yeah Samsung most probably would have tried to create something like this but I don't think they were that interested until they had enough people to buy the idea before buying the product hence why its taken a few years for people to have a phone and a tablet and a lap top. Corps never want to bring something new unless they were for sure they didn't have to pressure people to like a product if you get them to accept the idea before slapping a $800-$1400 pricetag to go along with it because now they have big are bills and investors to pay while being able to financially stable for future products. Marketing is marketing I couldn't care less but I do care when it comes to being accepted in society. I knew what it was like growing up and I know what its like for kids to grow up because if you can't afford it its because your poor if you can't afford it its because your left behind and still not good enough and then if you don't have it your not even good enough to even be spoken too; its one thing to have something new and different but that doesn't change the way you look or where you really come from- but having morals doesn't sell products and services I get it just wish they would try to at least figure a way that its more valuable when reality there's apps and services that fulfil that? I mean I have never seen a celebrity use body spray, I have never seen a celebrity talk about an android product and I have never seen a celebrity talk about growing fruits or veges not even invested money into it, I've never seen a celebrity talking about their favourite gym equipment its either a person, brand shoe or results of exercises like I said there's nothing wrong with having that but there's nothing wrong showing more about what you actually fucking have, where it actually comes from let alone do you know more than you think you letting one. I have neyo come to mind all though I like him as a artist love his music but why foes Leonardo come to mind as well because no offence at least some of them know they homework, travel to learn and educate themselves actually see a side where they have the best of both worlds but someone's I wish it was more suitable to know how they feel about topics, show it off and who cares what they have. Leonardo is amazing actor a descent human and has money to blow and fabulous lifestyle but he shows off his other passion for life, culture and universe yet he makes more then the average actor or musician. Same like rihanna she's like because of how jay z handle her career so to speak but rihanna is liked more because she likes people who are laid back and has no problem being a flawed person or walking barefoot or wearing normal clothes to no jewelry if more entertainers would do what I just said as well as corp it wouldn't be so sad to show off what they introduce to us you know where I'm coming from. You have people who force you to like something and you have people who let there hair down and show you what isn't entertainment. The question is, while they are a big company would I give them a pass because of something that they weren't the only ones to create nah bro just sell the product but sell it as well that it won't bring as much harm that's all I'm asking if neyo, Leonardo and rihanna (black american, hippy and islander can make millions by showing not entertainment identity and still make millions then why can't they and why don't they name their products after the inventor instead of some letters and numbers like really? That's educational and history itself and makes me want to get to know the product and maybe buy it. Oh well never ganna happen but I will say Samsung tablets is where its at like its bomb don't own one but used one and had a amazing and enjoying experience even convince me to put some few hundred dollars to buy one.
