A bunch of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 features are rolling out to the original Fold in the US

Samsung released the Galaxy Z Fold2 a while back, packed with a slew of features that make it significantly better than the company's first attempt at a foldable phone. But the company hasn't forgotten about the first-gen Fold just yet. It's inheriting a few Z Fold2 capabilities via a firmware update that's now starting to roll out in the US.

Motorola is opening every Razr box to fold the phone for safer shipping

Motorola is opening every Razr box to fold the phone for safer shipping

Motorola launched its second foldable Razr phone recently, and this one is available unlocked rather than only on Verizon. If you decide to head over to the Amazon listing to pick up Moto's little flippy boy, you might notice a strange warning. The phone's "open" shipping configuration can potentially lead to damage during transit, so Moto is opening all the boxes to flip the phone closed. In the process, someone might get fingerprints all over your "new" phone.

Galaxy Z Fold2 review, one month later: Say hello to your future

Galaxy Z Fold2 review, one month later: Say hello to your future

I started out as a folding phone critic. In fact, I bought the Z Flip we reviewed this spring with the full intention of pointing out how dumb the idea was, except I was dead wrong. I fell in love with my little flip phone, and the last week spent with the Galaxy Z Fold2 has further cemented my change of heart. Folding phones are undeniably the future, and for the right folks, the Z Fold2 is a must-buy game-changer — though probably not for you.

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Microsoft's Surface Duo was finally revealed after almost a year of teasing just earlier this week, and our readers seem pretty polarized about it — and the whole category of folding phones in general. To be fair, there are a lot of disadvantages, like sky-high price tags and durability concerns. In my mind, we've reached the second generation of foldables, and some of those issues are starting to be resolved (outside price, anyway). With the development made so far, I'm curious to know if you'd consider a foldable for your next phone.

Samsung could be working on a Lite variant of the Galaxy Fold

Samsung could be working on a Lite variant of the Galaxy Fold

Samsung has so far launched a pair of foldable phones, both with sky-high prices. While as a brand, it can feel nice to have a couple ultra-premium phones on your store shelves that are effectively reserved for your most well-to-do customers, even a fancy folding phone is going to need a sensibly priced model in order to drive real volumes. It looks like Samsung may be catching on to that, as the company's rumored to be working on a cheaper variant of its $2,000 Galaxy Fold.

Galaxy Z Flip review, two months later: The right phone at the wrong time

Galaxy Z Flip review, two months later: The right phone at the wrong time

The progress we've made with folding phones in just the last year is stunning. We went from teasing the concept behind a glass box to several shipping products in just about no time, culminating almost precisely one year later in this: the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It's a folding vision from the future, loaded with flaws and bent like a scythe in preparation of the Flat Phone Reaping. Even if you don't buy the Z Flip (and you shouldn't), your current phone's days are numbered.

When he Mate X finally came out in November, it unfortunately shipped with Android 9 and hasn't been updated to Google's latest offering since then. Thankfully, the device is now receiving Android 10.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip vs Motorola Razr: What's different between these two clamshell foldables?

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip vs Motorola Razr: What's different between these two clamshell foldables?

Following a decade of seeing black, rectangular glass slabs grow in size while swapping their backs between metal and glass, foldables are taking over to become the face of phone fetish. The nostalgia-invoking Motorola Razr went on sale not too long ago and was closely followed by Samsung’s clamshell Galaxy Z Flip. With the two foldables officially out now, it’s time to revisit this comparison to find out which one deserves your dough.
