The iFixit website has caught the world's attention by showing the manufacturing defects of the Galaxy Fold, its famous folding smartphone that has seen its reputation drop in recent days. iFixit has deleted its article on dismantling the device. Was Samsung's pressure too much to handle?
Not surprisingly, Samsung has not appreciated everything that has been said about it lately. First, testers who encounted problems with their screen, then iFixit who disassemble (in the true sense of the word) the device to highlight all its defects. Samsung therefore complained to the supplier who offered a model of the Galaxy Fold to iFixit for the latter to delete its article.
Samsung has not created a smartphone as good as it is supposed to be (especially at such an astronomical price), and on top of that censors those who dare to demonstrate its flaws.
In any event, iFixit makes it clear that it did not delete its article following a direct request from Samsung, nor that the supplier forced it to do so, but nevertheless chose to do so "out of respect". The details are not known, but sometimes some sacrifices must be made to maintain good relationships.
What do you think of iFixit's reaction?
