    Not only outer folding but it's time to stop ALL folding phones. It's a dead end. It's pointless, flimsy, unreliable and childish.
    Rollable is the future. It makes far, far more sense. Plus, rollable screens will not suffer from those problems that plague folding screens.

      That is one of the stupidest things I've ever read. Foldables have fewer moving parts, no motor, and more room for a battery than a rollable. Rollables when deployed are literally filled with air. Not like a little bit; most of it is air. If you want to talk flimsy, half of your internal volume being made of *literally* nothing is kind of a problem. We have seen one rollable actually functional. It has a crease. You know what doesn't? Mate X2. A foldable.

    Once it can be folded into two, they don't need to stick to a certain shape.

    I'm stoked about the outside folding form factor. While it isn't perfect, I like the flexibility and utility it brings. The Huawei X series is the best example of this imo.

    honestly, this is the most efficient way of doing a folding phone. Samsung's approach is kinda wasteful with 3 screens when at a time you need at most 2. this formfactor is much efficient as they need much less hardware. but i think the most efficient might be a rollable phone.

    I work in China and I can tell you directly that this phone has terrible software lag there is a lot of lag, Also the screen and the android version they use makes me feel like I'm using a Samsung Galaxy 8, Seems they cut a lot of costs in the screen pixel graphics. You'll have to try it yourself and feel it out but trust me there's a lot of lag. I've been using the Samsung fold1 and it's the greatest phone I've used for a year haven't had any problems that been mentioned all over YouTube. I like using the Samsung Fold1 soooooo much, when folded you can use 1 hand and your thumb to type, my hand remembered the old Nokia phones that allowed use to type with 1 hand, Samsung fold2 still can but too wide, again 1 year with my Samsung Fold1 absolutely no problems or screen damage 😀

    You should take their technology seriously. The flex oled really has a durability problem. Royole might be the answer. Even in China, every tech cynical is laughing at them. But time will prove.

    Outer Folding might not be the best way. Yet, for companies like Huawei and Royaole, Outer Folding is the only way since their technology limits them to Outer Folding. They just can't do inside folding phone due to Limited Technologies.

    Genuine question, is it possible that the screen for folding phones to be made out of glass? And the part where you fold it is made from plastic? Like partially glass and plastic. If it is possible then it would have much better protection for the screen

    Alternate formfactors are simply devices looking for an audience. I asked my rep at the carrier store who sells the Galaxy Fold 2 and the Razr fold how many they sell of them...None.

    I actually like Huawei's interpretation, the best. I like that the outer display is more of a practical form factor, but I don't like that it's always exposed. The Z Fold 3 will be my next, primary device, tho. I just wish it had more of an 18:9 ratio, when closed.

    I don't get it - why don't they just make an inner screen folding phone with two regular screens that go edge to edge when opened up? I think a sharp cornered kind of edge display - perhaps with some prism peice covering the gap, would be better to use and be a lot less fragile than a soft film.

    Folding on the outside does prevent the issue of debris getting inside the fold and messing up the screen, we just need more durable folding screens. In that sense, this phone is ahead of it's time. I would like to see them keep working on it though, but maybe only as a concept.

    The folding trend is really stupid. It makes almost no sense for a phone.
    Phone should be easily carried around: the double thickness makes it worse than almost every available alternative.
    You want to watch a bigger screen? Get a tablet. Most of the time you don’t need the big screen unless you live your life at home.
