Foldable screens were long overdue, in fact I’m surprised it took so long to come to fruition what with the LG G Flex that launched way back in 2013! But are foldable display devices like the Fold 3 ready to go mainstream? Well, not in 2021 at least, and the sheer lack of them (and the crazy price tag) is proof enough as of now. The Samsung Flip 3 retails for ₹84,999, but it’s also half the phone the Fold 3 is... quite literally.

So, if you’re buying it to make a statement, it’ll be for a short time. The trade off? You end up with a phone that looks like a dusty, grime sandwich at the end of the day.
