Samsung is still the number one manufacturer in the foldable sector. Now, experts discovered some reasons why the company’s competitors suck at it.
Samsung foldables are currently top-of-the-line devices from the giant iPhone competitor. Based on the performances of the company’s handsets, there’s no doubt that it is the best foldable developer in the market right now.
To dethrone the king, Samsung’s competitors are trying to make their own versions of the popular foldable devices, but to no avail. On the other hand, Apple still hasn’t released its own version of the flexible device. But, some rumors claimed that Apple foldables would arrive, soon.
However, speculations were still not able to acquire much details about the iPhone foldables, such as their actual appearances, features, and components. While Apple focuses on its regular iPhone lineup, Samsung on the other hand is still enhancing its foldables to maintain its position as the top developer.
But, why do Samsung’s competitors still suck when it comes to developing and producing foldable. To give you more idea, here are the major details that various critics acquired.
Why Many Handset Makers Suck at Foldables
Experts explained that Samsung’s competitor is doing their best to create their own unique, efficient foldable handsets. This simply means that they don’t lack effort at all. However, compared to the giant Galaxy maker, they still have a long way to go since Apple’s biggest rival started their career in foldable at an early age.
It’s worth remembering that the company didn’t exactly nail its first attempt at a foldable phone. While the original Galaxy Fold was impressive as a concept, the initial execution proved to be off the mark. Ernest Doku, a mobile expert at Uswitch.com, explained that “Samsung has a long history of innovation and it’s easy to overlook that it has taken them three iterations of the Galaxy Fold 3 to really nail the design.”
Other phone makers will have to go through similar struggles if they want to pursue developing a foldable phone that can match Samsung’s success. And part of the challenge is settling on a design that both appeals to customers and can withstand daily use.
There’s also the problem that foldable phone sales only make up a fraction of the overall smartphone market. A company with Samsung’s market share can afford to stick with foldables even without an immediate payoff because its midrange and flagship segments are so massive.
However, other smartphone makers don’t actually have that kind of luxury, especially those who have a lot of competitors in the Android market. Experts suggested that this is one of the main reasons why consumers are seeing many gadget creators fail when it comes to creating their own foldables.
Based on the details provided above, there’s still a high chance that the giant Galaxy maker would soon face a smartphone manufacturer that can produce more advanced foldables. But, you also need to consider that Samsung already has years of expertise when it comes to making foldables. Guess that would be one of the most awaited competitions in the tech industry.
