        It's working exactly as designed; it is the new Gilded Age Republicans aimed for.

        But it is a choice, and it can be reversed. Radical redistribution through punitive taxation of high income and especially wealth hoarding will rebuild the middle class and improve the lives of 99.9% of Americans and return our economic dominance. All that needs to be done is to remove the cold, dead hand of the wealthy from blocking our democracy.
        Not that Raeganomics has helped but there is the bigger problem of not enough resources. We’ve reached a point where there just isn’t any land left around major cities which has significantly driven up the cost of housing.

          What does that even mean, no more land around cities? What is there, a lake of plasma?
          If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                        Is the crease noticable? Touch/feel? I've heard it's a crap shoot on where it folds.

                        I just wish the S series flagship phones weren't so expensive for the lack of features now (no 3.5mm, no MagStripe Samsung Pay, no real upgrades since the 20).

                            The crease is really only noticeable because it comes with a two piece screen protector. I thought it would bug me but it only does when it needs to be replaced. (which I need to do this week) Now I legit got it for $100 bucks (a deal cause I had Sprint and switched to TMobile) so even if it did break I got my money's worth but I am quite surprised how well it works.

                            The annoying thing to me is no expandable memory but a lot of phones are going that way.

                              Fair point, only $100 makes it pretty much gravy. To me, I just don't see the advantage of the folding. For the Flip, the smartphones have grown so gradually over the last 15 years that the current size isn't too unwieldy anymore; certainly if you went back 20 years and gave me a modern smartphone my reaction would be "this is too big" but with the change in size over time I don't really notice. For the Fold, sure it can fold out to be almost tablet sized, but doesn't pretty much everyone have a tablet; seems to jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none. Couple that with all of the quality issue for whatever company first did it about 5 or so years back, but they might have addressed that in newer models. To each their own, glad it's working for you!

                              • The advantage is it is smaller in the pocket, beyond that not so much to be honest. When it opens it is the size of my old phone which I hated having in my pocket but this feels much better. (especially when running or exercising and listening to music)

                                I dont plan to get the zflip4 because it is still running fine and the specs arent that much better. We will see after that.
