Re: available
I saw many foldable phones at MWC Barcelona this year. Huawei, Samsung, and others were displaying and demo their foldable phones.

Re: available
Totally in agreement. No wonder whole world wants the phones to be the tiniest powerful devices to be ultra handy. At the same time none would like to compromise with the limitation of the size to ditch other devices completely. So it is clear that screen size really matters. So it is very clear that size is no longer going to become any smaller but we will see trend of foldable phones. That way a good balance is hit with both better screen size which can be foldable for ease of usage.

I was very impressed by the Samsung smart home and Bixby. They have now a little wardrobe that cleans and irons your clothes, all controlled by Bixby. I loved it.

Re: available
Joe: I don't see phones returning to smaller any time soon. Today was MWC19 Barcelona last day. Smartphone manufacturers are offereing smartphones in two or three sizes. Flexible and foldable smartphones are already a reality now. I saw three of them. They are pretty much the size of a phablet that can folded into something about the size of an iPhone Plus. You get more functionalit and you will be able to control absolutely everything from your handheld device. There is no way these things will get back to anything smaller.

@Susan: It's cyclical. Phones will return to smaller and more downmarket in time.

Reminds me of the ridiculously large cell phones rich people had in the '80s.

@Commisio: Tell me about it. I could get a used car for that much. (Maybe not a very nice one, but still.)

Why spend so much money on a device that other people want to use to get in touch with you?

Thank you for this Commisio. I didn’t know about this smart watch. This is something that needs attention, indeed.
