The Flip2 was fantastic when I tried it out. I really want the Flip3 but 10% price slash isn't enough. Also, they dont sell them SIM Free in Japan, and my Note10+ has issue with notifications which is Samsung software related.

10% price slash isn't enough.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 starts at $999 in the US, finally bringing the price down to a mass market level.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 starts at $1,799 in the US, still priced too high for a mass market ceiling of $1,500.

The fact that they are willing to slash prices already tell you just how overpriced they tried to sell their phones to customers in the beginning.

 how overpriced they tried to sell their phones to customers in the beginning.

Isn't that how all technologies are?

Prices come down, sales expand, everyone can afford one.

@gaicuckojin Do you also boycott LINE? It's from South Korean NAVER. I bet not. Makes me laugh when anti-Korean people use LINE. Shows how stupid they are.

Assets of Japanese companies who committed war crimes against Korean citizens prior to 1945 are being seized to compensate them.

What crimes did Samsung commit against Japanese citizens? How can you seize the assets of a company that did nothing wrong in Japan or against Japanese citizens?
