The first Galaxy Fold screens are breaking immediately

Earlier this week Samsung sent out the first review models of its foldable Galaxy Fold. Sadly, it's not just the boundaries of tech that got broken – multiple reviewers have reported issues with the screens already.

However, it seems the device is a long way from entering any best smartphones rankings, as the screen technology isn't quite as robust as you might hope.
