Without a doubt, Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 2 is one of the most fascinating devices of the year. It's a massive year-over-year upgrade compared to the original Galaxy Fold, with Samsung delivering greatly improved displays, better durability, and higher-end specs across the board.

The Z Fold 2 has gotten a lot of buzz and hype since its announcement, but with a price tag of $2,000, did anyone put their money where their mouth is and actually buy the thing?

Taking a look through the AC forums, it appears that a few of our members did.

Am I the only one that thinks that the Fold 2 feels like a prestigious device when it's in your hand?

I'll let you know when mine gets here. I sold the original Fold a month after I had it the screen issues with crease drove me bananas. Got to get the Fold 2, they seemed to get it right now. Then I'm done buying high end devices.

The Fold 2 is, without a doubt, a premium device and it feels like it. There would be absolutely no excuse otherwise. None. The build materials are just fine and the device feels VERY solid in the hand. My biggest issue is perceived durability but I am now committed and will take care of it the best I can. I think that goes with choosing this device. Treat it like an everyday phone at your...

  • Too rich for my blood. I've always had the latest and greatest, but I think I'm getting too old for this S.
  • I can think of far better things to spend my money on.
  • Yes. Great device. The way to get it is through AT&T Next Up payment plan. Pay 15 months and you can update to the next model. You only pay 50% and always trade up to the latest and greatest.
  • I have it. It's a great phone. They did a great job and it feels premium. It just cost a lot. I'm going to have to send it back.
  • I'm actually going to purchase one this week from amazon DE as the Uk site is out of stock. I hope I won't be disappointed. I want something that nobody else has. So this could be the one. Performance should be amazing too with an overclocked 865.
    Will Post my thoughts next week.
  • I got mine a little over a week ago and I absolutely love it. I upgraded from the original fold and it is a noticeable difference. I use the outer screen a lot more now. It is still a but narrow but actually usable. The 120Hz inner screen and foldable glass are actually very noticeable upgrades and it just feels a lot more premium. The flex hinge and outer screen are super useful for taking selfies with the phone some distance away from you. Dex Wireless is insane and the phone really shines there compared to the previous one. It is worth every dime in my opinion
