The Z Fold 4 is the first smartphone to ship with AndroidL, a version of Android designed for large-screen experiences.

Waiting for Apple to release their folding phone, so we can progress from "nobody needs a folding phone" to "my folding iPhone is great" stage of acceptance on this forum.

Meanwhile, IPhone 14 will have a smaller notch.
Kind of feel that iPhones are getting obsolete before they even go to market.

How come Android supports 24 bits hifi audio and Apple complains about Bluetooth and can’t support it?.

A friend of mine bought one about a year ago and I have to say, the screen looks really good. I was pretty impressed. The fingerprint sensor on the side is a nice feature too. I really wish Apple would do that.

Android Take The L


But seriously, these things are still overpriced gimmicks. $1800 is more than a lot of Macs.
Nah Android is good. I mentioned this a million times but without android, Apple will be the intel of quad core processors and still sell 3.5 inch phones with 8gb storage and 1gb ram.
