All the Galaxy Fold units offer exclusive access to customer care services - including one-on-one access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or over the phone. The company will soon elaborate its plans for respective markets.

What's At Its Heart?

What We Think Of The Galaxy Fold

With the history that the device has, it would be hard for users to opt for the phone, despite the company claiming to have curbed the issues. Besides, the hefty price tag doesn't help the cause. But still, there would be a lot of technology enthusiasts who would want to get their hands on this device. We hope the company has produced a better-functioning product, putting the fiasco behind. We will have to wait for the consumer reactions before passing judgment.
