Komentari

  • Double the screen, double the posts.

  • You can use floating keyboard

  • Stupid IPHONE lover....never close to samsung.

  • Foldable phones TO ME, are a flash in the pan. I have ZERO interest in obtaining one. The future is rollables for this platform of "phablets" unless they really F the pooch on them. And unless the kingdoms of Samsung and Google don't pull their heads out of their a$$'$ I will never drop $2000 on ANY phone..... And I don't think I'm alone in this way of thinking. So, that's my two cents. I think rollables are the way to go. Am I alone ? What do you and your followers think ? Please let me know if I am crazy or my hypothesis holds water. Stay safe and healthy everybody.

  • I watched many reviews, by far this is the most interesting and natural way to review this. You got a new subscriber good job!🔥🔥🔥

  • Poor ROG phone. It was doing its best, Linus

  • At this point you better refurbish the Note 9.

  • i actually have this phone and absolutely love it. at first i was like this is just too much. typical reaction to a new concept of a device (yes i dont say there arent same concepts but this looks more stable and slate) just needs to get used to though. battery life is good if you turn on adaptive battery consumption and it doesnt hurt my notifications or oher processes. yes some apps are not 100 percent compatibile but on the other side of the coin, it really makes a difference when u want to read a book or watch a movie etc. gaming is good but can be better. no lags or jittering but the screen seems a bit too big in game and sometimes its hard to reach to some buttons like in pupg. However, its a wonderful experience nonetheless.

  • Hey Linus ! You being a Tech HRwikir still using NOTE 9 now, just goes to show one does not need latest and greatest everytime...Respect 👍...Nice Informative Video

  • Sorry for double posting, but I just wanted to say that this review is THE $h1t! Awesome work Linus!! While most reviewers talk about how great the Fold2 is, you honestly and painstakingly point out the drawbacks.

  • Ladies and Gentleman, do you remember CURVED SCREENS? IMHO Samsung is heading towards another BLIND ALLEY with those foldables. I've never even considered buying a curved TV, but Samsung tried to push them really REALLY hard. Now the curved screens are pretty much GONE... and Samsung is trying to push a new gimmick -- foldable phones. The news is that they gonna kill the NOTE line and realease more foldables next year. But I'm saying: IT WON'T WORK! Of course, I might be wrong (I'm just a dumb Polack xD), but I give Samsung even LESS CHANCE with foldables (than with curved TVs). They're too expensive (it will be difficult to lower the cost with their 2 SCREENS) and NOBODY SANE is going to pay $1000+ for a low/mid range foldable device. ROLLABLE phones have a higher chance for becoming mainstream...

  • there uh proto types ??????????

  • Hard pass on this way too expensive pablet. I have been a Note user from the beginning, and I suppose if they stop making them I'll use my 20 Ultra until it turns into a paperweight. 😂 I think the thing I miss the most is the ability to use my phone as a remote for my TV. I loved that my Note 8 did that. 😂

  • Oh yah teams notifications is so stupid... I hate it for my work too

  • Man.. this guy face is always depressing af.. Can I block this channel so I can never see his face even on the recommendation?..

  • Noot noot

  • Use code ref-dgjh1o at checkout for up to 10 -15 percent off on samsung .com

  • Turns out Kenny Loggins is immortal.

  • This phone is for common users that want to show off their phones..... this is not for ubuntu linux programmers... people that like Apple and Tiktok would like the Samsung fold who are the most common users..this phone is not for gamers.

  • Hey guys a lot of you maybe already heard the story of KoolKing Logan. He is an awsome kid who just beat cancer and his dream is to become a youtuber. He really makes quality content yesterday alone he got 50k new subscriber as the internet is banding together to help him out. The only thing he needs is a proper setup. Maybe LTT could help out there and hook him up with proper equipment. It would be nice if this post could get some traction so the right people read this. Here is a link to his channel: hrwiki.info/key/JeoZ5ubCT1FMi9ad63-M-w

  • for 2k you can build an epic gaming pc and have money left over for a used note 9

  • ill stick with a classic Nokia folds

  • Preorderd my Z Fold 2 and received it day one. Been several weeks of using it and boy am I disappointed with the end result of this review. However, I can't say I am surprised. After watching a lot of Linus' reviews, I didn't see him liking the phone from the get go. No hate here though and I respect his opinions. The only thing is, I do have full-screen Instagram and no notification bugs. In fact my Z Fold 2 has preformed exceptionally well. I won't try to over sell it though. There's a lot of pessimist out there that think this phone is junk and shit, people still think iPhone are cool. Wouldn't be worth arguing. Love my Z Fold 2 nonetheless and nothing will change my mind

  • Foldable smart phones are literally the DUMBEST IDEA EVER! hey how bout you pay a ridiculously high price for a phone with a BUILT-IN weak spot! I'm more on board with the oppo x rollable screen but tbh it's all totally retarded! I have a regular bar style smart phone and it does EVERYTHING I could ever ask! Why are they trying to reinvent the wheel? Stupid ideas for STUPID PEOPLE who are ok with paying STUPID prices!😠👎

  • i love this channel

  • The punch hole in the screen also allows you to do video calls while looking at your big screen instead of using your tiny little back screen.

  • Terrible review and kind of boring Yap yap yap..hayls world review best review

  • Download good lock for scaling you should know that

  • That screen protector is actually the best plastic screen protector ever existed(Still inferior to any glass screen protector). Yes it is still kind of bad, but it is better than anything you can get for it later on, besides go back to Samsung and get one more.

  • 11:52 Rip ROG Phone 3

  • 2000dols and its not waterproof

  • Do. Not. Want.

  • Love how these vids use the Samsung as the benchmark folding phone when it's an unnecessarily over complicated pile of cr😳p compared to the Huawei mate xs I've been using since the summer.

  • Fold phones are an expensive gimmick. In a couple of years they'll seem like a bad joke and nobody will want to be seen using one.

  • Thanks for sharing this!

  • Gotta agree. I haven't felt the need to replace my Note9. The 10 wasn't enough of an upgrade and he 20 series all seem to have compromises or stupid high pricing compared to what the similar model cost just 2 years ago. I'm hoping the 21 series will be a better series.

  • What still usingnote 9? I been used note 10, note 20 ultra and fold 2, i still miss my note 9, i think note 9 is one of the best phone Samsung ever made.

  • too niche at this point. needs way more refining. i dont like the fact that there's 3 screens. i think i like the z flip better.

  • All these phones are shit stop promoting old technology Any phone with a punch whole or cut out is old technology Get with the program Mi even went backgrounds on some dumb shit I don't wanna see nothing on the front of my phone, simple ALL THE PHONES WITH PUNCH WHOLES AND CUT OUTS ARE SERIOUSLY SHIT, WAKE UP FYI Mi Mix 3 still my favorite phone for practical reason wireless charging nothing on the screen storage ridiculously excellent battery👌🏾 my phone never dies flashlight on selfie camera 4k OLED 💯🔥

  • do a note 9 revisited video linus

  • The 'pet murder' bit was lame

  • Wow, didn't expect Linus to have such an athletic body 😲🤯

  • Honnestly i don't see a future in which a small device can't do as much as a bigger machine. Like okay if you want to i dunno scan your whole house in 3D or play VR with haptics + stream etc etc.. you might need a cloud computer. But having a normal sized device that can transform to a productivity device when you need it is just awesome. I love computers, laptops, building and upgrading them but it's not the way forward. I really damn like those little concepts phones !

  • Dat intro do be sick tho!

  • Oh its just the rog phone it's not the fold 2 or note its all good lmfao

  • You know a products bad when even linus cant justify using it for long, hmm its almost like i called that ages ago when foldable phones were announced, its a new tech great, but seriously your paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to basically beta test.

  • I don't understand why nobody show typing when is this phone half folded ??

  • The whole pet murder thing is no joke kinda making me not want to buy from them now- You cannot threaten to murder the ones close to you no matter how much they pay you to say it.

  • MS Teams is horrible to use. its just unuserfriendly

  • Pet murder

  • Stick with my note 10+ i picked up last year Amazing phone only trouble is trying to find the actual 1tb card they talked about on release (Running 64Gb card anyway so not a issue)

  • You peel off the screen protector😮😮😮

  • Z fold is not for everyone it's more like a phone that you can flex to fat rich people even Samsung doesn't recommend you to buy it.

    • Umm.. proof or that's bs

  • but can it run Crysis?

  • your new nickname is BABYTHUMBS

  • yo u forgot a phone, galaxy s10 lite for cases and stickers

  • 0:01 Man the cover made it look like it was already broken.

  • It's not Samsung's fault that Linus has tiny little baby hands.

    • With average (M/L) sized hands, I have the same issue - and the feeling that IF my hands were any bigger, my thumbs were too large for the letters on the keyboard, resulting in typos.

  • You should watch out man because jhon wont like that very much you know wick has a special place for his dog

  • MS Team phone app is crap.

  • Same here... Still holding on to my 2-year old Note9 until Samsung releases a 'real upgrade' and Exynos is on par with Snapdragon chips.

  • I Will Wait on the Samsung Slide phone . Much better phone than the Fold without the UGLY center crease .

  • Foldable is stupid

  • My daily driver is a note 8 and still love it had it for almost 4 years with 0 complaints. I am waiting till next year to see what samsung has got for me to upgrade.

  • Anyone switch this phone to iPhone?

  • HANDS DOWN....LG THINQ DUAL SCREEN KNOCKS THIS OUT THE BOX Y'ALL...i bought one (SAMSUNG FOLD) from bestbuy for $1900, will say THIS: I am a SAMSUNG FREAK! I hate ANYTHING w/ an "i" in front of it, & sad but TRUE... The good does NOT out weigh the BAD...*SCREEN IS DULL AF *VOLUME IS A STRUGGLE TO HEAR (had to download app to increase volume) *TOO SLEEK IT SLID OFF MY COUCH 1 TIME AND THAT WAS A RAP 4 FRONT SCREEN (WITH THE $100+ CASE THAT SLIDES OFF ALL THE TIME) *CHARGES SLOW AF, BUT IT DOES HOLD A CHARGE ALL DAY LONG (WAS IMPRESSED) *I DROPPED IT A 2ND TIME, & I CAN ONLY USE THE FRONT SCREEN * IT DOES SEEM TO WITHSTAND GETTING WET BETTER THAN MOST PHONES * I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING A GOOD PHONE FOR MULTITASKING MADE SIMPLER, BUT THE 2 SCREENS ARE JUST FOR A BIGGER SCREEN, UNLIKE THE LG DUAL SCREEN WHICH IS EVERY MULTITAKING PERSONS DREAM COME TRUE SINCE U CAN DO 2 DIFFERENT THINGS ON IT MEANING U CAN BE ON A SITE ON ONE SCREEN, WHILE DOING SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT ON THE OTHER! * PRICE IS INSNE! I ECPECTED THE MOST BADASS PHONE FOR 2 FREAKIN K! IJS ...WHILE EVERYONE FOCUSED ON SAMSUNG AND APPLE.....LG IS CEAPING ON A COME UP ....

  • Seriously...!! You know all that about the phone and Samsung did not !! They will contact you soon to head the QC Department...lool

  • honestly i like the Luinus face one skin , ima get one for my switch cuz the phone i have doesn't support the skin

  • Was waiting for the rog phone to fall all video lmao

  • Your intro’s ugly tbh.

  • Excellent on-air presence. As a person who used to hire news anchors, I would hire you. If you were a commercial news anchor, you would have to clean up, of course. But then you're pitching to a different demographic and have assumed the look that would appeal to that demo -- the "I've been stuck in JFK airport during a snow storm for three days sleeping on the benches" look. That stipulated, you take command of the TV screen, which is what you look for when you're trying to hire news readers. In addition, you're an excellent writer. Indeed, the writing is exceptional. So is the pacing of the video. Congratulations.

  • Why are you talking like you're forced to shoot this video? 😂😅

  • Linus if you don't need that phone can I have it?

  • Scaming in your vid

  • oH iT wAs jUsT tHe rOg pHONe

  • I think that the notifications issue with Teams is some problem with Microsoft, because I use Skype on a daily basis on iOS and also have problems where notifications don’t show up.

  • Just got iPhone 12 Pro Max and wait for iPhone 14 Pro Foldable.

  • Me its like outer screen must be as big as the best note ultra screen. I love my crystal views, yes I love automatic pen icon. Fold 3 should be much bigger.

  • Trash !!

  • He's complaining more than usual with this one

  • My daily driver is a Note 8. I'm fine with it.

  • Im also still daily driving my note 9. It's still a premium experience

  • 3:00 a hole punch on the outer display would have been a lot better option

  • Why don't you set the keyboard floating when un-folded? 🤔

  • So glad I didn't get one. I had the note 9 turned the 9 in for the 20 ultra and am very happy.

  • aaahhh long time no se the butter finger linus side, thanks!

  • If you think that plastic screen protector was cringy just skip to 10:41 where you see linus' instagram page where he posted a shirtless mirror selfie where hes clearly trying to flex his abs

  • There's a reasons Instagram posted 2 pictures for 1 upload the phones called z fold 2 for a reason

  • 可他们给的实在太多了 but they really pay so much

  • I am here trying to see how fast I can type with a tablet keyboard because Linus challenged me

  • Haven't watch Linus for a very long time. Now, he looked like that guy from Castaway movie.

  • Fools and their money soon parted. lol

  • AGAIN, LTT, where is my V60 (has a dual screen) review?

  • Okay, now make one that opens up to the size of a normal smartphone and folds to half the size of one. I don't need a tablet in my pocket, but I do miss the days of flip phones.

  • Woah, woah, hey there. Who's wearing the Western Michigan University sweater? I need to know who on your staff is the Bronco.

  • 3:29 it's 714, not 741 ;)

  • So what youre telling me is I should get it and have a mini tablet for clash of clans in my pocket at all times gotcha

  • *Correction: You can actually use the outer screen to take selfie with the rear camera

  • "By contrast" - *contrast increases*

  • 11:18 i agree with #google on this because the core of the operating system is not ready for manufacturing experiments like these and hardware devs of these companies should make it possible via the kernel where everything starts in android, otherwise ... ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++ GOOD LUCK 2000$ FOLDABLES ++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ p.s. this will change if google create a foldable phone and add code to Linux kernel . simple as that !
