Whenever we talk about Samsung Galaxy Fold the raising of the eyebrows is almost consequent, given the doubts raised in recent months on the category of leaflets. Everyone would like them but nobody would buy them: too expensive but above all too fragile. A perplexity based on objective facts, as the negative test shows developed by CNET, not counting that of SquareTrade. The same Samsung asks Fold owners to use it gently, in order to delay a wear which, however, is almost obvious both around the corner.
The display of Samsung Galaxy Fold is fragile, but repairing it costs "little"
Not surprisingly, Samsung offered a promotion to the first buyers of Samsung Galaxy Fold: if you buy it before 31 December, you can replace the display only 149$. But what happens after that date? How much could it cost to repair such an advanced, almost futuristic panel? So much, but perhaps less than you might think. At the modest sum of 599$ it will be possible to repair it, while going down to 139 $ for the front panel. However, here we talk about repairs out of warranty: it will be interesting to evaluate the behavior of the company towards those who will complain about any damaged and similar pixels deriving from the alleged wear.
