Google Pixel Fold is to be Google’s first foldable phone. Today we learned that, despite the close cooperation with Samsung, the manufacturer prefers to copy Oppo. And that’s great news, but we’re still in for a disaster.
In 2022, we will witness the increasing popularity of folded smartphones. They will become more affordable, and new manufacturers will take up competition in the flagship shelf. One of the contenders will be Google Pixel Fold. Today we learned a little more about its design.
At the current stage, we have three main versions of foldable smartphones. One is represented by Huawei P50 Pocket or Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. The other is Honor Magic V and Galaxy Z Fold 3. The last one is the latest and it’s Oppo Find N. Why don’t I put it in one bag with Honor and Samsung? Because it is smaller and has different screen proportions.
And the Google Pixel Fold is supposed to be similar to it. This means the aspect ratio of the main display is slightly close to the square. In my opinion, Google is going the right way. Thanks to this, the external screen is much more useful, and the main screen is more comfortable to watch the video. However, there is a “but” – and a very large “but”.
Quality control and Google Pixel Fold
I have one problem with this phone. Google Pixel 6 problems ultimately weighed on my opinion. Google has quality control somewhere and there are a lot of software bugs. Such voices even come from the USA, where most of the cool flagships are missing. Even there MKBHD advises against purchasing Pixel 6 Pro.
Can you imagine the problems with a folded smartphone from Google? After all, it is an incomparably more complicated structure. Google was able to break even simple mediums (see peeling off screen). I do not wish anyone bad, but I think it will be an experiment on users. Unsuccessful.
