I don't know what they were talking about lol
I figured I would make this post to let others know that the outer screen is very useful. I think the reviewers were just spoiled by the giant inner screen so they found the smaller outer screen "useless".
Using the phone closed with just the outer screen is actually more comfortable than anything I've used in years for one handed use. These days phones have become hard to handle with one hand, but the Fold when closed is not at all. Great when you're on the move or just want to be more discrete while reading something.
pardon my partial vent,
but this is what happens when these idiots make these "Review" videos, after only having used the device on Launch Day
for a bunch of "tech enthusiasts" whose job is to delve into a device, almost all of these reviews are cookie cutter, and just regurgitating spec sheets.
unfortunately, it's all about being first in this day. who cares, rifle out the content. end vent
back to the front screen, from all the fold videos i've seen, yes the thinner/narrower body is much better for one-handed use,
but almost everyone complains about typing, in which cases, is two handed typing
i think only 2 reviewers have mentioned that it's very useful for a particular type of user: the keyboard swiping
lastly, i didn't see any of these "two handed typing" people complaining about the keyboard on an iphone 3-4 with a 3.5" screen, when android phones of that time were already 5"+.
oh well i guess
