Keeping abreast of time, the phone offers some of the most modern connectivity options. The manufacturer sells two variants of the handset: 3G and 4G LTE. Except for the ultra-fast connectivity the phone houses a 3.8-inch display and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 2GB RAM.

Perhaps such processing parameters aren’t particularly impressive, but they should manage to provide the handset’s users with smooth performance of Android Marshmallow the phone runs out of box. Furthermore, the Galaxy Folder 2 is kept alive by a 1,950 mAh battery and includes microSD expansion slot accepting cards  up to 256GB. Meanwhile, its optics are represented by a combination of 8MP and 5MP cameras.

In addition, the phone’s keypad is slightly bigger than the one found in its predecessor – the Galaxy Folder. There are several different physical buttons dedicated to various functions that enhance the phone’s functionality. For instance, there is a dedicated button for social media, camera, contacts or texting. Other than that Samsung designed the phone with middle-aged-people in mind and equipped the device with 15 distinct ringtones for those who might have trouble with hearing and increased the volume from 11 to 13.

The Galaxy Folder 2 is available in two color variants: pink and black. Both are priced at something round $260. This week the phone will become available in its home-market of South Korea. Samsung still needs to confirm whether or when the phone will hit the States.

The rise and fall of the Windows Phone… what went wrong year by year

ByinAnnouncements | June 6, 2017

Since the system is dead, there will be no further developments, no successors to Windows 10 Mobile to compete with dominating the market Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. Introduced by Satya Nadella, the new Microsoft’s strategy focuses on collaboration rather than rivalry. This is at least what the Redmond’s team tried to tell itself to explain the decision on giving up on mobile software venture.

However, we can’t forget that the Windows Phone path to failure is paved with a series of smaller successes and developments, which truth to be told Microsoft and its hardware partners have never received enough customer faith in. At the day of its debut, Windows Phone was considered the most original and innovative OS offering beating even the introduced three years earlier Apple’s iPhone. Unlike Android, the Windows Phone didn’t derive from the iconic iOS and worked fluently even on smartphones with basic tech parameters. To understand the reasons behind the Windows Phone failure we need to look back at the beginnings of this ill-fated mobile OS.
