It is always so frustrating. You hit a bug on an app A on device B. You file a ticket with app A. They reply weeks later and said their app works fine, it is device B that is buggy. You go to device B and file a ticket. They say their device works fine and app A is to blame. Neither take responsibility, neither do anything to fix or improve. You can provide proof that A or B is truely to blame, but then you get ghosted and hear nothing. Cause let's be real, the customer service and companies doesn't give 2 cents about helping or hearing out individual customers. It's all lipservice, auto replies, and chat bots to placeate the masses. Anyone involved in real decisions and design are: 1 practical genius drowned by 9 silicon valley bubble bois so enamoured with tech "fashion" and so far removed from their consumers, that we get unpopular decisions like smartphones devolving out the sd card slot, headphone jack, waterproofing, etc., in favor of absurd gimmicky flashy "features" like a battery killing 4k on a tiny smartphone screen or an unreprogrammable dedicated Bixby button. Same with software. Like how much money has DEpost itself wasted on pointless UI ascetics revamps instead of showing some love for smaller creators? Corpos seem determined to slowly disfigure DEpost into just another cable channel, but on the internet.

The only thing stopping me from getting phones like these are the fact that I don't need all of that space, and built my own PC for only a 5 hundred more than the cost of the phone. :/

I almost bought this phone, but changed my mind at the last minute and grabbed the Note 20 Ultra..I had the Note 10 Plus, but I accidentally crushed it with a track-hoe and the warranty people couldn't get one, so they just sent me a check, lol. I basically got a free upgrade to the Note 20..

I can find merit in all the points you mention. But I love my Galaxy Fold 2. I used to have an HTC Desire Z with a hinged screen and QWERTY keyboard. It wasn't a flagship phone by any stretch but I loved the keyboard so much I used it until it became too slow to use with modern Android apps. The Fold 2, now, has given me back that typing experience, in a phone that will actually be high end for a long time. And that makes it well worth the price, for me personally. I absolutely adore it, despite it's quirks.

Your gamebreaking cons here really have to do with software, and that has largely been fixed already. The inputs can be moved to either half of the screen, the standard keyboard will split down the middle now so your hands can reach, the more popular apps have rolled out updates (including a "laptop mode" on DEpost where if you fold the phone partially, you can have the focused video at the top screen and your UI on what would be a laptop's keyboard area), and less popular apps can each individually have their behavior configured in the phone's settings. However, to add a con, do NOT try cleaning the hinge and then opening up the phone. The cleaning agent may unseat the lubricant, and it can brick parts of the phone; I lost the front screen and only got an easy replacement because it was under 2 weeks old. On a related note, opening and closing the screen has this creaky greasy sound right out of the box, though you do have to listen for it to hear it. That sound is why I tried cleaning the hinge in the first place: I thought it was from kids putting their greasy fingers on it, but it turned out it was just the (required!) hinge lubricant!

I use Teams for work as well and I have the Samsung Note 20 Ultra and I don't get notifications from it... However, you have to be clocked in, in order to receive any notifications or use MS Teams in general but even then when I'm clocked in, which is almost always, I still don't get notifications so I think it's a Samsung issue.

I've had every note phone that came out except for the 20. And I bought the thief hoe 2 when it first came out I love this phone I'm definitely going to get the z43 when it comes out I don't have any of the issues that he's talking about. And I use my front screen more than that open the screen up itself. Also I thought I wouldn't like the small screen it seems like it's easier to use even when I'm driving or trying to use a one-hand use

I don't understand who buys this phone. I personally would not be able to deal with the bump right down the middle. Furthermore, the aspect ratio on the unfolded phone doesn't match any media type. None of it makes any sense, and it looks like a terrible user experience. I just got a note 20 ultra, and I love it.

I find it interesting you mention Teams specifically. Since they do have an option on by default which is if teams is open on your computer it won't send notifications to the mobile app. I think for most that stay at their desk its a nice feature that prevents duplicate notifications. The problem is if you step away a lot for long periods things will get missed. Also it can be buggy. Like Linus said notifications in Teams is a hot mess.
