Samsung Galaxy Fold has Fragile Screen Created Outrage

(Last Updated On: April 19, 2019)

The day came and the Samsung Galaxy Fold had to debut first in the hands of specialists and reviewers. But even challenging the more optimistic forecasts that estimated that this Samsung flagship did not measure up to the other premium phones with standard design, the Galaxy Fold proved to have a horribly fragile screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a very fragile screen and this has been exposed among the few tens of units distributed by Samsung for daily experimentation. At least four of them were broken by the day or two days of use. And his damage was not a trivial one, but his inner screen became unusable.


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.

Problems with the Samsung Galaxy Fold

Mark Gurman, reviewer of Bloomberg and specialist in mobile devices, was one of those affected by the fragility of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. In his eyes, the interior screen of the smartphone broke suddenly. So much so that he admitted to being confused about it because he did not know if it was a problem with his unit or one that could be repeated in several more.

Other reviewers and critics experienced the same flaw at the end of the same period of use or even less. However, since the distribution of the Samsung Galaxy Fold was not massive so it is unknown if an international release would have reported a notable volume of additional cases. The truth is that it looks like something probable.

PSA: There’s a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold’s display. It’s NOT a screen protector. Do NOT remove it.

I got this far peeling it off before the display spazzed and blacked out. Start over with a replacement.

To make matters worse, another specialist in the world of mobile technology as it is Marques Brownlee had another problem with the Samsung Galaxy Fold screen that rather arose because of his innate curiosity and Samsung’s lack of expertise when it comes to reporting crucial information about his new flagship cell phone.

It happens that in the interior screen of the Galaxy Fold comes attached a screen protector from the factory with industrial adhesive. This means that if you try to remove it, although it is possible, it has an enormous potential to leave indelible marks and even damage the very display that it tries to protect.

Thus, Samsung came out quickly with an official statement noting that the problem of the screens that abruptly stopped working is currently being investigated to make sure that it was a problem in a few units and not one that could potentially arise in all or almost all of them .

And on the screen saver they admitted that it is information that they did not notice to users and that they will make sure in the future to do so. However, the Samsung Galaxy Fold has a very fragile screen and that does not seem to change with updates or research at this point.
