For more than a year before Samsung even announced the Galaxy Fold, I was warning people that it would end up being a mess. No, I didn’t have any inside track into Samsung’s secret design labs. I’ve just been doing this for a really long time. Samsung’s mobile division is so good at so many things, but innovating with first-generation smartphones is nowhere to be found on that list. The company is all about evolution, not revolution, and its first-gen devices are always a disaster. We’ve been over this — when Samsung introduces a new class of device, it pretty much ends up being the physical embodiment of a “first!” YouTube comment. Down the road a bit once Samsung has refined its design over the course of a few iterations, Samsung’s mobile devices are incredible.
