I am not a fan of phone cases, so a phone that folds up to protect the screen is something that really intrigues me. I worry though that I might be trading potential scratches from some frisky pocket-key action for an eventual line etched onto the screen where it folds. Or worse, an actual crack!
This doesn’t seem to be enough to worry potential buyers though, as they sold out in the first day! And such a quick restock too – it is almost as though they had more ready to go! The way I see it this phone has two things that really make it stand out, first is the ability to make your phone smaller in your pocket. Phones are getting huge, and I love a big screen, but I also love a small pocket footprint. Second, and perhaps this is more important, you gain the ability to flip your phone open with a flourish and say “Arm the photon torpedos” or “Bring me my alien love interest!” And that friends is something you can’t put a price on.
