Several manufacturers have entered the foldable device market, so it finally seems like there are plenty of options out there. Foldables aren’t cheap yet, and we’re still a few years away from that, but there’s competition out there that will help bring prices down and polish the early models’ rough edges.

In our previous survey, we grouped all of the foldables together, but we suspect most of you are only interested in one form factor – horizontal or vertical? Most horizontal phone makers have focused on the larger horizontal phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, Honor Magic Vs, Oppo Find N2, Tecno Phantom V Fold, vivo X Fold+, and Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 (and Huawei phones, too).
Foldables are still very rare, although the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Motorola Razr 2022 are no longer alone. There’s the Find N2 Flip, as well as vivo and OnePlus that are claimed to sport vertical folds along with horizontal flanges. It’s not clear which way Realme will go, but Samsung will definitely launch one of each.

Note that Apple’s first foldable phone is said to be a tablet rather than a phone. This market is relatively unexplored, unless you count foldable laptops like the ThinkPad and Zenbook (but even then such devices are rare).
So, which form factor do you prefer? Assuming you gave an upvote in the above poll, of course. Vote below or using this page.
