    Personally I don't see the usefulness of a foldable display. Yeah, it's cool and all but it seems useless to me.

    That said, I think that maybe a usefulness could arise perhaps with a slightly different design in the future but I'm not exactly sure what that would be. It's unfortunate that this has happened as now it will put a shadow over the foldable nature of any phone to come out.

    a folding part on a mobile being device being a weakness? Well I never saw that one coming...

    That.

    Not that I am or am ever likely to be in the market for a premium phone, folding or not. So what do I know?

    iFixIt has shared a tear-down of the Galaxy Fold.

    It scores 2 out of 10 for repairability.
