They're lovely but I have elegant slim hands and normal sized pockets so they're just too damn big.
It's like cameras. Americans with fat fingers skewing the market :(
The long-awaited – and highly leaked – Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra flagship phones are finally here along with official glimpses of the folding Galaxy Z. Question is: is the S20 series any good? Last month, your humble vulture jumped on a train to London to attend a Samsung pre-briefing, where, with a sticker …

So far, I have to say, it doesn't look like any of my use cases will be significantly improved over my imminently out of contract current slab. Even 5G doesn't impress me as I don't tend to go places that currently or soon will have it. So pending something really spectacular, that's about it down this line.
Now the Z Fold? That looks like something that I might actually find useful, if it proves durable enough, and that's largely because of the form factor. Travel and commuting, I find that I end up shuffling my phone around various pockets as I move, due to the size of the slab, and a phone that fits into that small package sounds like something I'd be interested in. the specs appear to be roughly equivalent to last years top tier, which is more than plenty for me. It will mostly depend on the battery life at that point. (or really push the boat out and wait until they release the rumoured Fold 2)
