7 Problems with Foldable Phones That Can Not Be Ignored
Foldable phones is one of those tech innovations that makes you wonder if it was really needed. In her quick oversight at Interesting Engineering, Loukia Papadopoulos points out some real issues related to foldable phones that are good to consider before purchasing one. It doesn’t appear that users were demanding this feature in their mobile devices so why has it come about? It will be interesting to see if foldable phones catch on to meet previously undiscovered needs or if the business just… folds.
From the price range to quality control, foldable phones come with their own set of issues.

There’s been much talk and hype related to foldable phones in the last week and rightly so. After Samsung announced its Galaxy Fold and Huawei came out with the Mate X, there was much to be excited about.
However, foldable phones come with several issues, some that can not be ignored. We don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade but we had to give you a list of these problems.
1. They crease
Yes, we know Huawei used patented technology that makes its screen lie completely flat but still anything that folds will somehow crease. This may not be a deal breaker but most of the things that you want to be done on a large flat screen, such as watch a movie, are better done on an actual flat surface such as a tablet.
2. They’re bigger
Let’s face it we want our phones to be small. Why? Because we need to carry them everywhere we go. Sure both Samsung and Huawei claim their phones are as thin as can be but they will never be as thin as regular phones.
