It hasn’t been long since the heads in Samsung faced criticism and embarrassment after reviewers reviewed first-ever foldable smartphone with brutal honesty. Some reviewers complained that their screens had cracked, while some said that their phones flickered. Others said that their phone failed altogether when a protective film was removed.
