Don’t be flip with the Flip

A point to note if you have a new Galaxy Z Flip:

Foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Flip and the Motorola Razr can’t afford much negative feedback if they ever want to go mainstream. Elsewhere around the web, most Galaxy Z Flip owners are seemingly enjoying the clamshell-style foldable phone Samsung invested heavily in to create.

If you had a flip phone back in the days of feature phones – so we’re talking from the late 90s to the mid 00s – you’ll recall opening and closing it it was a firm act with a twist of the wrist.

That’s how I remember it and that memory is back with me again with my Nokia 2720 Flip (aka my ‘mild detox’ phone). That has a nice firm clunk feel to it when flipping it closed.

Just don’t do that with your Samsung flip phone.
