There’s been a lot of improvement after the reviewers complained about the fragility of the screen. The best feature of the fond is that it’s foldable. The screen is literally foldable, yes – it can bend without damage.  The phone is more resistant to debris and dust, and furthermore the screen protector cannot be removed.
