Samsung released its first folding smartphone and people went crazy over that amazing innovation. After all, it was the first android cellphone without the risk of getting your screen panel cracked. Unfortunately, things didn’t work as Samsung planned.
Most of the people who purchased the Samsung Galaxy Fold are now complaining about their phones getting cracked the next day. Recently, we’ve seen a wave of tweets in which people are going mad over this new folding screen technology by Samsung.
The screen on my Galaxy Fold review unit is completely broken and unusable just two days in. Hard to know if this is widespread or not. pic.twitter.com/G0OHj3DQHw

PSA: There's a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold's display. It's NOT a screen protector. Do NOT remove it.
I got this far peeling it off before the display spazzed and blacked out. Started over with a replacement. pic.twitter.com/ZhEG2Bqulr

Samsung is investigating this issue in a serious manner and we hope that this time they will not disappoint us.
Why is the Galaxy Fold Breaking?
According to Samsung, they’ve installed a plastic film layer on the foldable screen. The purpose of the top plastic layer is to protect it from damage. If you remove that protective film and add something with the adhesive property, it may cause damage or scratches to your phone’s screen. So, make sure not to remove the plastic protection from your screen. The company itself is trying to deliver this important information to their customers so that everyone may save itself from further risks.
This whole scenario can cause serious trouble for Samsung, as it can hit the image of this amazing brand. Let’s see how Samsung respond to this issue in the future.
