And we also know that Samsung is not the foremost phone company to launch its first foldable smartphone in the foldable phone market, it is like participating in a contest, especially in the same market.

That is the main reason behind the success of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold at 2019 Mobile World Congress, unpacked event held in February, it attracts, more customers as compared to other 4, foldable phones. The foremost reason behind the attraction is that Samsung has also, announced the 5G phone. Several buyers have fascinated by the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and out of many, some of the buyers are not able to buy it given its price, due to tricky design and short available stock. The alternative, Samsung has announced its commitment flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10, which most people can able to buy it.

We are not blaming you if, you liking both phones, Samsung Galaxy S10, and Galaxy Fold. If you ask me, I would, stay on Samsung Galaxy S10 as it is reliable and familiar, but if, we take a look on Galaxy Fold then it represents the bold and exciting features. If you really, want to know the differences between Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Fold.

Galaxy Fold – Design

One of the main difference between both Galaxy phones is the design. While Samsung pulls the Galaxy S10’s design sharply as compared to the Galaxy S9 Note, but Galaxy Fold designs a new form factor completely.

The Galaxy Fold, it directly indicated by its name, it has a foldable OLED screen. When you look at the phone it, look same like a secondary 4.6-inch display phone that appear as its “cover,” which has all, the normal features, the usual phone has, that you have expected on a phone. And if you want to feel or see bigger than, just open the Fold and it opens up in a book style and become a 7.3-inch display tablet.

Many of us are thinking that there will be a visible line across the screen but, Samsung has achieved this design with not a single visible line across the screen, the Galaxy Fold has what the company designates the “Infinity Flex Display.” As the OLED screen has made with a lavish plastic material, the can bend and fold thousands of times without any damage. Thankfully, with the help of Google’s Operating System, the app will adjust according to the display sizes as well.

And if we take a look on the other hand, Samsung Galaxy S10 features a more traditional phone style. Although the design is similar, it is not accurately common, it sustains a sleek glass covering it and thin bezels make the display screen much bigger from its previous 5.6 to 6.1-inch display phones. And luckily, it also comes in various new colors, but not, every color is available yet, such as yellow, pink and an iridescent white.

Camera – Samsung Galaxy S10 And Galaxy Fold

There is a total of 4 cameras in Samsung Galaxy S10, which is enough for several users, like to thanks Samsung for this wonderful specification. There is only one camera in front and three cameras in the backside. The rear camera has ultra-wide-angle, a wide-angle and telephoto lenses and the front camera is of 10-megapixel.

And if we take look on the Galaxy Fold cameras, it has a wide range of cameras, as it has a total of 6 cameras in it. Six cameras are way enough, but if Samsung main focus is that users should able to take a picture in any matter what is in, it is understandable that there are so many in the Galaxy Fold.

On the back side, Samsung Galaxy Fold has a similar triple-camera setup as the Samsung Galaxy S10. Galaxy Fold camera has ultra-wide-angle, a wide-angle and telephoto lenses and the front camera is of 10-megapixel. But when user will open the Galaxy Fold and when it becomes a tablet, then you will able to see, two more additional cameras, one camera is for a selfie and the second camera is of the 8-megapixel depth camera.

This second camera is used for depth sensing, which means it will use the second lens, not for the software algorithm, but to render a portrait image with a blurry effect and depth field effect.

Price – Samsung Galaxy S10 And Galaxy Fold

Last year, when Samsung has launched its Galaxy Note 9, many customers are unwilling to accept it at the price tag of $1000 (£899 and AU$1,499). But after this Galaxy Fold said, “Hold my beer,” and expose himself to spend $ 1,980 (about £ 1,500 or AU $ 2,800).

In some criteria, we all know why the Galaxy Fold is so costly. The foldable design, multiple screens, total numbers of cameras: 6, huge battery backup. Certainly, at the present moment, that particular people are holding onto their phones longer like, a new design and different technology are way enough to justify an expensive upgrade to users. And the most important point, it is the same as, you are having two products at the same time, such as a phone and a tablet in one hand.

Simply the truth for utmost users is that they can not manage to buy it, or fear of using $ 2,000 smartphones. As in this particular money, anyone can go through two generations of the Galaxy S-Phone (if the prices are relatively similar), or your next phone upgrade is up to eight years (if you update it each year) with four $ 500 Moto Z Phone!
