Did we honestly think the foldable smartphone that costs upwards of $2,000 was a good idea?

Unfortunately, many consumers wanting the latest, innovative gadget and are finding out the hard way that clothing is best for folding.

Samsung's new Galaxy Fold smartphone will not be commercially available to consumers until April 26.

Journalists who were supplied with early samples of the phone were able to try out it out. So far, there are no rave reviews.


Bloomberg's Mark Gurman tweeted pictures of his damaged screen on Wednesday after barely spending time with the phone.

"The screen on my Galaxy Fold review unit is completely broken and unusable just two days in. Hard to know if this is widespread or not."



Gurman apparently detached the protective adhesive without reading instructions not to.

But is the consumer entirely at fault for the damage-prone device?


Things weren't looking up.




Gurman wasn't the only one who was inconvenienced.

Web video producer Marques Brownlee also mistook the shield for a scratch-resistant cover.




Turns out that protective layer served no useful function.




The new phone costs $1,980 and comes with two screens. The first is the exterior screen measuring 4.6-inches and the interior, when unfolded, reveals the second display at 7.3-inches, according to CNET.

Meanwhile, Apple users got a little cocky.


But iOS users were chastised for their devotion to a brand known for exploding batteries.


Samsung released a statement, saying they will "thoroughly inspect thee units in person to determine the cause of the matter."


So far, there are no plans of modifying the phones.


Sounds like Samsung is poised for about as much success as their curved monitors that nobody is buying.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
