I personally can’t think of too many scenarios, primarily in my workday (I’m a IT technician/admin) where it would make sense for me for the sake of either saving time or being able to do something more efficiently to use a foldable open versus a single screen traditional candybar phone.
Now, I can see a foldable being more handy when winding down at the end of the day, reading an article in Feedly on the left screen and opening a link in a browser on the right screen. Or just emails on the left, browser to the right. Point being, for me personally, trying to use a foldable unfolded would likely hinder me more during work which is when I use my phone the most so it makes little sense if I am mostly going to get one to use casually when I already have a Surface I can split screens on to do the same thing.

I do generally agree here, while sure, there are perks to having a Fold like device, the things you do give up (and the degree of importance to what those are will vary by person) isn’t worth what you end up gaining.
I do still feel Oppo’s approach to their foldable the Find N is better than Samsungs. It doesn’t really solve many of the inherent problems outlined here with the Fold 4, the size and format is more easily digestible for day to day use.
I am anxiously waiting for Google to get into foldables with the rumored Pixel Fold/Notepad device possibly this year and having used the 12L dock on my Pixel 6 experimentally, I do like how simply it works. I am most excited that if rumors hold true that Google has gone the Find N route to building their foldable over Samsung Fold series.
Can’t wait for SF6 and while I have a Xbox Series S, I am hoping PS5’s will be more readily available this time next year or even going into the holiday season this year.

That’s where many of the traditional car brands have the advantage. Trust in a brand goes a long way and many of these trendy, mostly unknown brands, having no history, only have some flashy looks or features to sway buyers. Once VW group brands, Toyota and Honda really get in the groove with their full EV offerings, brands like VinFast, Lucid, Rivian, brands with little to no name recognition or reputation will slowly dwindle away either to complete obscurity or just as a tiny niche brand.

Having just bought the Pixel Buds Pro to take over duties from my Buds A-series, I’d like a comparison between these and the Buds Pro especially at this price-point. One of the primary reasons I got the Pro’s is the almost 11 hour non-ANC battery life and I think these Linkbuds are rated for 8-9 with ANC off which I’d still be okay with versus the less than 5 I was getting with the A-series.
