The folding ones still lack some technologies that we already see in the mid-range

Though for months my essential cell has all the time been a folding one, all through this time I’ve been utilizing different fashions because of the want to hold out the analyzes and critiques that you simply see in El Androide Libre. Which means that every change of cell leaves me with new sensations, each in terms of leaving a foldable and choosing it up.

As well as, these comparisons haven’t been made solely with the high-end mobiles that I check, but in addition with mid-range fashions that undergo the evaluation desk. It’s above all in the sort of case the place we see some shortcomings of lots of the folding ones, resembling the 2 that we talked about right now.

There isn’t any fingerprint sensor on the display screen

What has caught my consideration essentially the most in regards to the folding telephones that I’ve tried (from Samsung, Huawei, OPPO…) is that none of them had a fingerprint sensor on the display screen. This know-how has already reached the mid-range of 400 euros, and if it’s not used it is because of prices, or to depart components to distinguish its regular high-end.

Nonetheless, plainly Vivo would be the one to interrupt with it with the Vivo X Fold, a terminal that won’t have a fingerprint sensor on the display screen, however two, one in every of the 2 panels that it’s going to have.

Let’s hope that this turns into a pattern and Samsung, for instance, implements them in its subsequent foldables, though it appears that it’s going to not be this 12 months.

mud resistance

One other facet that’s already taken with no consideration in high-end mobiles is resistance not solely to liquids, but in addition to mud. On this case, Samsung is the one one that gives resistance to the previous in its folding, however to not the latter.

The remainder of the manufacturers do neither one nor the opposite. It’s logical to grasp the rationale. A tool with a hinge and transferring elements is not one thing you wish to drag right into a sandstorm.

Otras carencias de estos terminales son las propias que tenemos en la gama alta regular. No hay plegables con tarjetas micro SD, con jack de auriculares o con radio FM.

Es cierto que quien busca ese tipo de características no suele estar dispuesto a apagar entre 1000 y 2000 euros por un smartphone, pero nunca está de más exigir si vamos a gastarnos ese dinero.
