Here's why Galaxy Fold displays are already failing There are two distinct issues here, and only one is particularly fixable. Read more 👇🏻 Problem 1: The screen's plastic covering looks removable This is the "fixable" problem. The Galaxy Fold, as every other foldable phone, has a plastic display on top of the OLED display that allows the entire screen to flex. We don't yet have flexible glass, so this is just how things are going to have to be for the foreseeable future. But the problem with that top layer on the Galaxy Fold is that it looks exactly like a pre-installed screen protector we've seen on phone after phone — including the Galaxy S10 — that you have the option of removing. On the Fold, though, the layer is not designed to be removed. It's not just inadvisable to do so, it's not meant to be removable. If you remove that top layer, you've effectively done the same as removing the cover glass from your Galaxy S10 — and, at that point, the display panel itself is going to fail. And it won't take long to do so. Samsung's messaging to early reviewers explicitly reminded us that the top layer of the screen was not removable and that it would compromise the integrity of the display. But even still, the urge to remove that top layer has been ingrained in all of us for over a decade — plastic doesn't feel right on a phone, and it looks like it's removable. Even some of the most egregious offenders of pre-installed screen protectors in the past would still technically allow you to remove the protector and have the phone work properly afterward. This just isn't the same case, even though it feels the same at first. So this part of the problem is fixable, but we don't know what Samsung plans to do about it. Let's remember that the Galaxy Fold is already up for pre-order, and will be shipping to regular consumers (albeit not in large numbers) with no hand-holding or extra information. They'll just get a phone in a box, and in the case of our retail-ready boxes there was not a single warning on the phone or packaging that mentioned you should not remove this top film. Pair that up with the intense desire to want to peel plastic from new phones, and you're set up for a bad news cycle of broken Galaxy Fold screens. Thankfully, proper retail boxes are supposed to have a small warning on the protective film covering the entire phone out of the box. And for as interesting of a news story it is for reviewers to see broken screens, customers that paid $2000 will take this a bit more seriously. It would behoove Samsung to make changes to its packaging and software to make it explicit as possible that the plastic should not be removed like any other phone — a single warning on the piece of plastic that people hastily rip off of every phone really isn't enough when the consequences are this serious. Problem 2: The screen is just fragile, period This is the bigger issue that Samsung inherently can't "fix" without years more development of the display technology that enables these phones to fold over and over again. So you shouldn't remove the top layer of the Galaxy Fold's display. We know this. But the fact that you can remove it (if you try hard enough) and simply doing that is enough to completely render the display useless and quickly broken is a bad sign. At least two of the reports of failed displays came while the Galaxy Fold's top layer was kept in place and undamaged, which points to the larger discussion of just how fragile the display technology is no matter what you do. Should this keep you from buying a Galaxy Fold?🤔 There are many reasons why you should be skeptical of parting with $2000 to buy a Galaxy Fold, well before any of these reports of screen failures arose. The durability and longevity of a flexible display was always going to be in question on these first-generation consumer foldable devices — we just didn't necessarily expect to see it start so spectacularly or so early. If you were hyped enough about the Galaxy Fold to want to place a pre-order, or at least see it in stores at the end of April before potentially buying, it would be a good idea to remind yourself of all of these sorts of problems that can be associated with a device that introduces a brand new form factor and so many new technologies. The Galaxy Fold is not a normal phone, and it's truly pushing the envelope in ways that we haven't seen in years; that's going to come with compromises, and you should know about them all before you decide to buy.

Ten Things You Need to Know Today: Monday 13 Jul 2020
Workers to self-isolate after 73 cases found at farm Around 200 workers have been told to self-isolate after 73 cases of Covid-19 were confirmed at a farm in Herefordshire. “Targeted action” is being taken against more than 100 local outbreaks of coronavirus every week, says Matt Hancock. Writing in the Daily Telegraph, the health secretary said increased testing meant officials could now be “targeted” in their response. Coronavirus immunity may be lost within months Covid-19 survivors may lose their immunity to the virus within months, according to new research. Scientists who analysed the immune response of more than 90 patients and healthcare workers at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS foundation trust found that while 60% of people had a “potent” antibody response at the height of their battle with the virus, only 17% retained it three months later. First federal execution in the US for 17 years due today The first federal execution in the US for more than 17 years is set to go ahead in Indiana today. The execution of Daniel Lewis Lee was blocked by a federal judge after relatives of the victims sought a delay, saying they feared attending in person could expose them to coronavirus. However, the appeal court ruled that no federal statute or regulation gave the victims the right to attend the execution. Exit polls show slim lead for Poland’s Andrzej Duda Poland’s incumbent president holds a slim lead after Sunday’s presidential election, according to three exit polls. A final exit poll on Monday suggested that Andrzej Duda took 51% of the vote. Duda had fought against the socially liberal Warsaw mayor, Rafal Trzaskowski. The BBC says the vote has been widely seen as a battle for the country’s future as well as its strained relations with the European Union. Bollywood hit by coronavirus as stars hospitalised The film industry in India has been hit by Covid-19 after several of Bollywood’s biggest stars were sent to hospital after testing positive for the virus. Amitabh Bachchan was in a “stable” condition in the isolation unit at Nanavati Hospital, and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also entered hospital. Bachchan has made more than 180 films in a career spanning five decades. Government to warn Brits about post-Brexit travel costs The government is launching an information campaign with guidance about passports, travel insurance, mobile phone charges and travelling with pets after Brexit. The campaign - The UK’s new start: let’s get going - is aimed at raising awareness of higher costs, with travel insurance premiums expected to rise as eligibility for free healthcare in EU countries ends. The public will be told to check for mobile phone roaming charges in the EU. Iran report says human error led to Ukrainian jet being downed An official report has concluded that Iranian soldiers shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet because they forgot to calibrate their radar systems and mistakenly identified the aircraft as a threat. The Civil Aviation Organisation in Tehran said that the “human error” led to the accidental attack on the airliner in January, killing all 176 passengers and crew. Councils to cut costs after losing income from investments Local councils in England are set to shed thousands of jobs and cut services due to lost income from multibillion-pound holdings in office blocks, retail parks, airports and cinemas during the coronavirus pandemic. Local authorities had made an investment spree over the past four years as part of an effort to find alternative incomes and protect local services after deep austerity cuts by Conservative governments. John Lewis expected to reject Sunak’s bonus payment John Lewis is expected to reject a bonus funded by the taxpayer that could be worth £14 million. Its decision, which follows in the footsteps of Primark, could put pressure on other big employers to follow suit. Last week, Rishi Sunak said that the state would give companies £1,000 for every worker they brought back from furlough, provided they work for at least three months. Questions over Dominic Cummings' payment to AI firm A private firm owned and run by Dominic Cummings paid more than £250,000 to the artificial intelligence firm that worked on the Vote Leave campaign. The Downing Street adviser has refused to explain the reason for the payments to Faculty. Last week it was revealed that the Cabinet Office awarded an £840,000 contract to a company owned by a friend of Cummings.

Junk food discount deals to be axed as Boris Johnson begins war on obesity
Credits Scott Barbour/Getty Images Alt Text The rise in fast food outlets has been partly blamed for Britain's obesity epidemic Government accused of mixed messages as PM plans supermarket crackdown while chancellor pushes ‘Eat Out’ scheme One-Minute Read James Ashford Friday, July 10, 2020 - 3:52pm Boris Johnson is preparing to kick off the government’s new anti-obesity drive with a ban on supermarket promotions of unhealthy food. The prime minister had previously declared himself “very libertarian” on food choices, but now says that the global outbreak of coronavirus - which has been shown to hit obese people harder - has convinced him to take action on unhealthy eating, reports The Times. See related Cartoon characters could be banned from junk food London Underground to consider ban on junk food adverts Children's online junk food ads banned by watchdog Shortly before becoming Tory leader last July, Johnson said he would end the “continuing creep of the nanny state” if he got into Downing Street, starting with a review of taxes on sugary, salty and fatty foods, as The Telegraph reported at the time. But under the new plans, expected to be unveiled within weeks, shops may be barred from offering “buy one, get one free” deals on unhealthy food. The measures are also likely to include banning sweets and chocolates from being promoted at supermarket entrances and the ends of aisles. And “restaurant and takeaway menus could be forced to include a calorie count for each meal”, reports the Daily Mirror. News of the proposals comes just days after Chancellor Rishi Sunak unveiled the government’s new “Eat Out to Help Out” scheme, which is intended to boost the UK’s hospitality industry by encouraging more people to dine at restaurants, cafes and pubs. Obesity campaigners told Daily Mail that it “defies belief” that ministers are considering to adopt the “sensible” plans to help millions lose weight just a day after announcing the “stupid” move to offer cut-price meals. Experts claim that the government has given a “green light for junk food” with the “Eat Out” scheme, which offers 50% discounts on meals at restaurants and fast-food chains including Burger King.

If you love music and a good time: If you are into electronic music, love festivals and the club scene, well good news: Tbilisi is the New Berlin! Check out our world-renowned club Bassiani or attend the ECOWAVES Festival by the sea! 5. If you will go to great extents to capture that perfect Instagram pic, look no further! you will find thousands of picture perfect instagramable places to create your next, original story/post. 6. And last, but not least: If you like standing up to dictators and bullies and like being part of a good cause, if you believe in democracy and human rights and like rooting for the underdog: As you may have heard, 20% of Georgia has been occupied by Russia since the 2008 war. In the midst of rising tensions, Russian president Putin has blocked flights from Russia to Georgia with the aim of crippling our economy, which largely thrives on tourism, especially Russian tourists. By visiting Georgia you'll not only have a wonderful, memorable trip, but will succeed in fighting back an oppressive, backward, fucked up regime.” Please share to spread the word!
