The only major US tech company who has yet to pledge a significant amount of money toward the issue is Amazon, although Amazon did donate $8 million over the summer to nonprofits that provide housing for the homeless.…

Samsung Galaxy Fold review: Fragile, but a total head-turner

Get it for: Rs 1,64,999 Highlight: Foldable display Bringing back memories of the Nokia communicator in 2019, Samsung has finally managed to launch the Galaxy Fold. It took eight years, thousand prototypes and a faux-pas or two for the phone to finally land. It’s a bold first attempt and Samsung must be applauded for the innovations. However, it is not a completely perfect phone. You get all the latest flagship features from Samsung in the Galaxy Fold that opens like a book.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold, again: Hard to love, even harder to hate

+ The Galaxy Fold lives. I don’t just mean in the vague “Samsung bounces back from a fiasco” sense, either. My Galaxy Fold, which I’ve been tossing around for weeks, opening and closing it like a madman, mostly works the same as it did the day I unboxed it. Had the Fold failed again the way it did earlier this year, it might have been enough to seriously derail Samsung’s grand, foldable ambitions. This review would’ve been totally different, too. I could’ve gotten on my high horse and said a few things…
