Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, the aptly named Galaxy Fold, is a promising smartphone that introduces people to the wonderful world of foldable smartphones. But while it’s promising, there are a few reasons to stop and consider not buying it.

Of course, Samsung device also has many good qualities and innovations. But there just are some wise reasons why buying the Galaxy Fold isn’t really practical. Here are five of them.

It’s very expensive

First of all, the Galaxy Fold is really expensive. As a first-of-its-kind device from South Korean tech giant Samsung, people can expect it to be really pricey. But at a whopping $1,980, buyers can already purchase two Galaxy S10s. It’s that expensive.

The screen crease

The Galaxy Fold suffers from the notorious screen “crease” which results from the display’s plastic overlay being folded again and again.

While the crease doesn’t look that bad, Android Central noted just how it can’t be unseen once it is seen. What’s more, using the unfolded device in landscape orientation just makes it worse. Users will have to swipe their fingers on the display, after all, and feel the slight crease with their fingertips.

App compatibility

Apps won’t be able to maximize the Galaxy Fold’s large display, at least for now. For example, most apps won’t be able to transfer from the small cover display to the larger foldable display seamlessly, and might need to be restarted in order to fill the screen.

Size and weight

The Galaxy Fold is a huge and heavy device. It’s taller than the Galaxy S10+ and twice as thick when folded. Sure, it’s thinner when opened, but it’s twice as wide too. While this problem can be expected to disappear over time as new technologies are developed, it stays with the current Galaxy Fold.

Odd display sizes

Lastly, the two display sizes are quite awkward and unnatural. The cover screen is very small and fails to maximize the Galaxy Fold’s outer measurements. It has large bezels, narrowing the display.

The larger screen, on the other hand, makes it difficult to use the phone with just one hand. Users who would need to touch something on the display will need to use their free hand, or risk dropping the device.
