A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that after a day of using the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the display of the device started to exhibit signs of damage. Now it looks like less than a month of the phone being announced, new quality issues have surfaced, this time in the form of the logo of the phone literally peeling off.
According to a tweet by user Kurby’S, it shows how the words that say “Samsung” on the side of the device have started to peel off. Both the “A” and the “U” have dropped away, leaving the device with “SMSNG”. To be fair, this is a rather trivial matter, but when you consider that the Galaxy Fold is priced at almost $2,000, you would think that the company would be paying attention to such details.
So far, no one else has reported similar issues with the phone, so it is possible that it could simply be an isolated incident and nothing more. However, like we said, given how much people are paying for it, we imagine that these sort of things shouldn’t happen. It has also been found that in recent tests, the number of times the Galaxy Fold can actually fold falls short of Samsung’s claims.

A test conducted by CNET last week revealed that the phone managed 120,000 folds before it was damaged. This is short of the 200,000 or so folds that Samsung had previously promised.
