Android's been around quite a while at this point (Google's Android turned 12 last year), and even Android phones have been around well over a decade now. And while obviously hardware like the HTC Hero matters in terms of where the platform got its start, and ones like the original Moto DROID mark its real entry into the marketplace in a big way, we think there are phones (and even A tablet) that are less remembered or less appreciated for their impact on the larger ecosystem.

[Update: Live snuff film] New Galaxy Fold durability test draws fresh attention to fragile display and hinge

The Samsung Galaxy Fold's original May release had to be pushed back a few months due to issues with debris getting into the hinge and breaking the inner screen. The revised version is finally available for purchase, but it's still a delicate device prone to breakage, something that's evident in JerryRigEverything's stress test and the multitude of warnings included with the phone.

Insurance firm SquareTrade took it upon itself to test how the device holds up against this regular everyday use case.

The Galaxy Fold is one of the most troubled smartphones in recent memory, and it hasn't even hit store shelves, yet.

In an attempt to ease consumer concerns regarding the Fold's fragile display, Samsung has officially announced a screen replacement program for early adopters.

The Galaxy Fold has already lost one US carrier partner for its re-launch

The Galaxy Fold famously crashed and burned this spring thanks to its design letting dust work its way into the screen. After months of delays and a redesign, the phone is finally slated to launch in September.
