The Samsung Galaxy Fold is one of the most exciting smart-phones of 2019, and we've finally been able to get our hands on the foldable phone – previously, we'd only been able to see it on stage during its launch, and at a distance and behind thick glass.

Design

Samsung believes the Galaxy Fold has the most intuitive form factor for a foldable phone, with the screen folding in on itself to provide protection, much like laptop. Fold it back up and the phone snaps shut with a satisfying sound, giving you confidence that it won't accidentally unfurl itself in your bag.

Display

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has two screens, with the 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display on the front feeling a little small by today's standards, when most phones have screens which are at least five inches in size. 

The small display is bright and clear though, with Samsung's Super AMOLED panel providing plenty of color. You can easily navigate Android, and it's useful for checking notifications, reading messages and controlling music playback.
 

Interface and performance

There are various ways you can use the Samsung Galaxy Fold. When closed, the 'phone mode' provides one-handed operation for tasks such as calls and music playback.
The 4.6-inch display operates like that of a regular smartphone, so apps and games work as you'd expect, although with a bigger screen just a quick unfold away, working on the smaller screen can feel cramped.
