I don't think that is the point at all, really? Every new thing starts out as an expensive novelty, and we ultimately laugh at the gen 1 tradeoffs. But gotta start somewhere.

But if no one was ever willing to drop $2,000 on a prototype, there wouldn't be $500 phones that compete with flagships today

I promise you we will talk about the problems with Android on tablets and how app support is a little broken and how Bixby is a slightly more annoying dog butler than anticipated, but I mean, take a second and look at that thing some more.

Are we all just taking it for granted that an actual folding phone exists and will ship next month? It might be a medium-good product, but holy shit this was absolutely the stuff of dreams when I was a kid. There wasn't even CGI to fake it properly.

This entire Galaxy S10 5G section is pretty funny since AT&T just put 5Ge logos on uh the Galaxy S7

Samsung just announced a Galaxy S10 5G with a video of animated lines zooming through a city, and then the presenter was like "amazing, right?" but it was just zoomy lines

Pitch idea: who are the people who clap when anyone says 5G at tech press conferences

I realize it's all marketing but Samsung has to know no human is ever going to say "I love using my Galaxy Buds with Call Message Continuity on the Tab S 5E"

The S10 is the first phone that can shoot 4K video in HDR10+, which is pretty damn cool

Samsung just said the S10 will have the world's most color-accurate display, which either means it will look dramatically different than every other Galaxy OLED display or Samsung has changed reality itself to have neon colors

Syllabus! It was the best. But the new tool has a built-in pie chart feature for some reason, so that's fun

I wonder if Samsung will play the S10 kinda low-key since it looks like such an iterative upd SAMSUNG PRESIDENT DJ KOH: "For those who say, everything possible has already been done, I say open your mind and get ready for the dawn of a new mobile era"
