  • Things that happen 100% when Galaxy Fold is bought
  • Hey,You bought it?
  • Oh~ Amazing
  • Can I Touch it?
  • Oh!!!You Bought it?
  • Uh? Sorry...
  • Everything by Itsub
  • -Hello, it’s Itsub
  • Today! Something that has the attention of the entire world...
  • Something that can be folded and opened...
  • First foldable phone by Samsung
  • Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G Detailed review!
  • Although Galaxy Fold was scheduled to be launched earlier...
  • There was some problem with the screen before the initial launch date
  • To increase the durabilty...
  • Launch date was delayed, After addressing all the issues,
  • 5G version has been launched first domestically.
  • Also, if you
  • Utilize the event code, You will get additional gifts
  • First, the design
  • At first glance, Galaxy Fold looks different than other smart phones
  • It brings back memories of clamshell type phones
  • In the past, Samsung launched a phone
  • That was able to swivel to a horizontal position Modeled W350 and W3500.
  • Now, The screen can be opened And folded
  • Wow...
  • A foldable phone
  • Compared with the other phones in the market,
  • The length is much smaller
  • Compared with Galaxy S10,
  • The width is smaller, The vertical length (Galaxy Fold 62.8mm//Galaxy S10 70.4mm)
  • Is a bit shorter than Galaxy Note 10+ (Galaxy Fold 160.9mm//Galaxy Note 10+ 162.9mm)
  • Compared with the Galaxy S10, The vertical length is a bit longer
  • Since it has shorter horizontal length,
  • The vertical length seems A bit longer
  • The one thing that worried me before getting my hands on Galaxy Fold
  • Was because it is 2 phones folded into one,
  • The phones might feel awkward in the hand
  • However, although it is more thicker
  • The horizontal length is shorter than average phones
  • So, the phone fits nicely in the hand
  • It really is nice to hold
  • However, since the phone is foldable
  • It is...
  • More thicker
  • Than your average phones
  • The thickness is similar to other phones when unfolded. (Galaxy Fold (Unfolded)//Galaxy Note 10+ )
  • The thickness when folded?
  • It is about the thickness of 2 smart phones (Galaxy Fold (Folded)//Galaxy Note 10+)
  • The Galaxy Fold has a cool factor
  • When wearing a suit and putting it in the pocket
  • It is similar to grabbing the remote controls in your homes
  • The available colors are
  • Space Silver
  • Space Silver And Cosmos Black, 2 variety
  • The coolest part of galaxy Fold is
  • here. The hinge!
  • It has been a long time since seeing a hinge on a smart phone
  • No, I guess this is the first time.
  • The hinge on Galaxy Fold is a bit thick
  • It has the look and feel of premium phone.
  • It seems to contain tremendous technology inside
  • I bumped the phone quite a bit especially the hinge part
  • But was able to escape without any damage
  • I was able to experience the sturdy built quality
  • When you look at the side
  • The left module has space for USIM
  • The right has volume rocker and lock button
  • On the bottom is the fingerprint sensor
  • Unfortunately, there is no micro SD slot
  • Unlike Galaxy S10 5G
  • Originally, the fingerprint sensor was together with the Bixby button
  • The new version got rid of the Bixby button
  • KUDOS
  • The customization of the lock button has been changed like the Galaxy Note 10
  • This button can be customized from side button settings
  • When double pressed
  • Long pressed and it can be customized to open favorite apps
  • Also, Galaxy Fold’s fingerprint sensor is not screen sensor
  • But sensor on the side like the Galaxy S10e
  • You can use gesture sensor with the fingerprint sensor
  • For example, when you swipe downwards the alarm window can be accessed
  • However, when using this function while the phone is unfolded?
  • Due to the position of the hands
  • Umm...
  • It can be a bit uncomfortable
  • Also the fact that it cannot be customized is a bit disappointing
  • There is a microphone on the bottom also an USB-C port
  • One speaker on the left module And? Another speaker on top!
  • So, there is a dual speaker system.
  • One disappointing thing
  • Which is a characteristic of Samsung Galaxies
  • Is that there is no 3.5pi earphone jack
  • Redeeming factor is that
  • In all Galaxy Fold packages, there is Galaxy Buds
  • Many of you think that foldable phones
  • When opened and folded, They are completely folded...
  • However, when foldable phones are
  • folded?
  • They are not completely folded
  • But there is a small space between the screens
  • And this model
  • Is a self-sufficient model
  • So when USIM tray is opened
  • And closed after inserting the USIM card,You can use it right away
  • Ah! As with other models this is a 5G phone
  • But when you insert 4G USIM,You can use it with LTE payment plan
  • Also, since you can use this with any carrier
  • There is no carrier specific apps preinstalled
  • While on the topic of USIM
  • Galaxy Fold is expected to be used by early adapters?
  • Businessmen? It will likely be used professionally
  • It would have been better if there were dual USIM slots
  • Also, the weight?
  • On a scale? 274g
  • The official weight is 276g
  • Uh? The silver and black is there weight difference between the colors?
  • This weighs 275g
  • Hmm... There are some variation in weight
  • So actual weight has been measured less than the official weight
  • Compared with a power bank?
  • Galaxy Fold is slightly heavier than Samsung power bank
  • Compared with the other smartphones in the market
  • It is 1.3 to 1.5 times more heavier (IphoneXs max// Galaxy Fold// Galaxy Note 10+)
  • When held? There is a feeling of some heaviness
  • When considering the screen size after the phone if unfolded
  • Compared with comparable sized tablet (Galaxy Fold 7.3 inch // Galaxy Tab A 8.0 8 inch)
  • It isn’t as heavy and feels quite comfortable to hold
  • However, since we are accustomed with holding ordinary smartphones
  • When the phone is initially held it feels heavy.
  • Next is the cover display.
  • There are 2 displays on the Galaxy Fold
  • The display that can be used when folded
  • The one on the outside is called Cover Display
  • It has ratio of 21:9 and 116.2mm (4.6 inch)
  • It also has HD+ resolution
  • The cover display is for quick jobs without unfolding the device
  • Since this is a 4.6 inch display compared to the smartphone in the market these days
  • It is a bit small there is a feeling of being cramped
  • When using the keyboard the default is 10 key system
  • Since I am more familiar with the QWERTY keyboard
  • It was difficult getting used to it so I tended to open the screen
  • And use the keyboard on the large screen
  • One disappointing thing is the bezel on the cover display is very thick
  • So the cover display is utilized for checking on the alarms
  • And for phone calls
  • The usage is a but different than usual smartphones
  • Third is the main display
  • The reason Galaxy Fold was launched with a delay
  • To fix the design fault And to increase the durability of the phone
  • The modified parts are
  • The screen protectors has been placed where it covers the entire screen
  • So that user cannot remove the protector
  • For the area where the two screen meet they added protection caps
  • On the top and bottom Of the screen
  • And even if foreign substances do enter the phone a metal guard was added
  • On the back of the screen to protect the display
  • With these improvements, I hope there will not be additional problems
  • The main display on Galaxy Fold used CPI protection screen instead of glass
  • It is different than usual glass that cover the smartphones
  • So you have to be careful
  • Taste of Capitalism (LOL)
  • Folded? Unfolded
  • You can use it like this.
  • When folding the screens there are magnets on the end of the screens
  • So,They come together like this
  • When 2 Folds come close together
  • The magnets stick together
  • The S pen on Galaxy Tab S6
  • It also stick to the phone
  • However, you cannot use the S pen on Galaxy Fold
  • Difference between other manufacturers
  • Although there are very few manufacturers that introduced a foldable phone
  • that introduced a foldable phone
  • But Samsung chose in-folding display mehtod
  • Main display is 7.3 inch
  • With a QXGA+ resolution, the ratio of 4.2:3
  • It seems to be more practical for documentation or reading than videos
  • It seems to be more practical for documentation or reading than videos
  • It is a good ratio for multitasking
  • It felt as if I was using small sized tablet
  • When watching videos on Galaxy Fold there are black bars on the top and bottom of the screen
  • However, due to the screen size of the Fold It wasn’t too much of a distraction
  • On the other hand, I like that fact that while playing a video
  • Due to the size of the screen,I was able to play the video on the top
  • And read the comments or input my comments
  • Also, the thing that many of you are curious about
  • Is there a crease in the center?
  • Here
  • and
  • The crease on my pants...lol
  • At first, everybody was talking about the crease
  • At first, This was on my mind
  • But as I continued using the phone My worries about the crease disappeared
  • Why? From the center, If you look at the screen from the perspective of the user
  • The crease is hardly visable
  • For example, if a user looks at the screen from the perspective of the camera
  • Crease can be hardly seen
  • To see the crease, You have to turn the screen off
  • And see it under a light or look at it from an angle And then you can see the crease easily
  • To sum it up, It is difficult to see the crease from the perspective of the user
  • If someone looks at the Galaxy Fold from the side
  • Then they will be able to see the crease
  • The crease is less visible when the screen is brighter
  • If i am hesitant about buying this phone
  • It will be because it is heavier than its competitors
  • And the crease will not be a factor in consideration
  • As mentioned before
  • The Galaxy fold has strengthened the functionality of multitasking
  • When you push the screen from the right?
  • There is a window that enables multitasking
  • For example, while surfing the internet You can place a note app here
  • To split the screen
  • Also
  • Screen ration can be changed to suit my needs
  • To see a video from here?
  • From the multitasking bar
  • App
  • Can be inserted here
  • The executed app’s size can be adjusted to fit my needs
  • From here, the video can be adjusted to my preference
  • After setting it like this? The window can be moved
  • When the window is tapped on the top
  • It can be adjusted like this
  • For example,
  • The screen can be split like this to be adjusted
  • Also by opening a pop-up window
  • You can control the transparency level
  • You can also hide it on the side
  • You can also enlarge the app to its maximum size, use it like this
  • You can adjust the position of the window
  • These
  • Multitasking functions have been made to be very effective
  • The photos that I took can be moved to
  • Other apps from the Gallery
  • However, these functions are not supported for all the apps
  • It is only supported on Samsung’s basic apps and few other apps
  • Under the Google Play policy of split and pop-up screen
  • It need to simultaneously support it Or not support it at all
  • So only one is possible
  • Here, multitasking is done by splitting the screen vertically
  • I was hoping one window to be on the top and
  • Another window to be on the bottom
  • As mentioned before the multitasking function can be utilized horizontally
  • Due to its large screen, the biggest pro of the Galaxy Fold
  • Is the multitasking function
  • Because not all apps are compatible with this function
  • ‘This app cannot be used in multi-window’ is shown for non-compatible apps
  • Games can be played with a video being turned on
  • And you can surf the internet while playing a game
  • Since, you can also adjust the transparency level, It can be utilized effectively
  • I especially like the reading experience on the Fold by reading a book on a large screen
  • Was a very pleasant experience
  • And on the upper right hand corner
  • There are various cameras and sensors like a notch
  • As you have seen earlier, When a video is played
  • The notch blocks a part of the screen
  • However, since the phone is grasped like this
  • The notch isn’t that distractive
  • Or...
  • Have I become used to the design and just rationalizing it? (It is better without the notch)
  • The screen when folded and unfolded
  • Might feel like to different phones
  • No! It might look like two independent screens
  • This also functions well with the app
  • I got a mail from Samsung
  • If you look at it. They usually give you address
  • If you search the address in a map
  • You feel a bit cramped
  • In that case, if you open the screen,
  • You can see the map in a large screen
  • The keyboard seems to be the right size for typing
  • You can also split the keyboard during typing
  • It is also very effective as a car navigation
  • However, due to the size of the screen
  • You cannot use the phone cradle
  • So you have to use a tablet cradle
  • Fourth is the front camera
  • On top of the cover display,
  • There is a 10-megapixel F2.2 aperture camera
  • Without opening the screen
  • You
  • Can take a quick selfie
  • If you press camera transition button from here, You can use the rear camera
  • However, to use the camera from a small creen like this seem a bit cramped
  • So when the screen is unfolded
  • You can see the effect of the USD1,980 sticker price
  • From here, the rear camera can be accessed And? Selfie.
  • They can all be taken from here
  • Hello, I am Itsub.
  • The camera on the top right-hand corner when the screen is unfolded
  • Is a 10-megapixel resolution F2.2 aperture camera.
  • There is also 8-megapixel RGB depth camera
  • The difference with the S10 is that
  • All the other cameras are same
  • The aperture of the front camera has been changed from F1.9 to F2.2.
  • Another difference?
  • The Fold’s front camera doesn’t support dual pixel AF
  • Fifth, the rear camera
  • Fold also has the same camera as Galaxy S10 there are three cameras
  • Telephoto 12-megapixel F2.4
  • Main 12-megapixel F1.5/F2.4
  • Ultra-wide 16-megapixel F2.2
  • One disappointing fact is that
  • Although this is a 5G model, There is no ToF camera
  • Therefore live focus videos are not possible
  • Also, Super steady function can be utilized
  • On//Off
  • Like this
  • On Galaxy Note 10, super steady function Can be utilized from telephoto lens
  • But on Galaxy Fold, this function can be only used from main lens
  • This is telephoto
  • This is wide
  • This is ultra-wide, Like this
  • When Galaxy Fold is unfolded
  • Main display is utilized as the default screen
  • So when I want to use the rear camera as a selfie camera
  • I hope there is an option to use the cover display as the display
  • The sixth is the speakers
  • The low tones leave a bit to be desired However, the speaker is more than satisfactory
  • Because the upper speaker does not utilize earpeace of the phone
  • And designed same as the lower speaker
  • So more than satisfactory quality sound can be realized
  • One disappointing fact is that the speakers are on the left module of the phone
  • So when using the speakers when the screen is unfolded
  • The balance of the speaker seem to be slanted to the left, It was the biggest disappointing aspect
  • And when watching a video
  • If you turn it horizontally?
  • The speakers are blocked by the hand
  • So when the phone is used unfolded
  • There is a tendency to turn the phone clockwise
  • Seventh is the remaining specs
  • Processor is Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
  • The Galaxy sold domestically usually had Samsung Xynos
  • But this time it is all Qualcomm Snapdragons
  • It is a good processor For those who like games
  • Battery is 4,235mAh
  • And wireless charging and PowerShare also connection to Windows
  • Most of the specs are similar to Galaxy S10 and Note 10
  • Since the screen has to be folded and unfolded
  • It does not support protection against water and dust
  • Also because it only supports 15W charging,
  • 25W fast charging Is no possible Which is another disappointing aspect
  • Finally, the purchase benefits
  • As I continue to use the Galaxy Fold
  • The thought of skipping "The 1st generation"
  • Has faded. Therefore, I will immediately purchase the phone when it is available
  • Since i prefer the self-sufficient model I will buy it from Samsung.com
  • It will be available from September 6th on Samsung.com
  • When bought from Samsung.com, you will receive Mount Blanc case
  • You will also get Galaxy Buds as part of the package
  • As usual, discounts by using Samsung and Hyundai cards are available
  • Also, there is a special Care Program for galaxy Fold only!
  • And, if you use the Event code shown here
  • You will get additional gifts
  • So we have looked through
  • The Galaxy Fold in detail.
  • Although, there was a delay in launching, Due to problems
  • Samsung has fixed all the issues
  • And have relaunched the phone with higher form factor
  • As I used this Galaxy Fold for extended period
  • The weight or the crease did not affect me as much as
  • The lack of protection against water and dust
  • However, The large screen won me over all these cons
  • When the phone arrives I will be doing the unboxing
  • And further contents
  • Also, if you want another review of Galaxy Fold
  • I would like to recommend video from the channel The Log
  • It has plenty of information for all you techies
  • Anyway, today’s video is done
  • If more foldable phones like Galaxy Fold are introduced in the market
  • Then the tablet market is expected to shrink
  • And an age where you can do everything with your phone is expected to arrive
  • A phone with
  • A new form factor
  • Has come out in the market. It will be fun seeing how this changes the market.
