Have you wanted to try a foldable phone, but balked at the idea of spending a small fortune when you’re not even sure you like the concept? Samsung thinks it can reassure you. It is launching a promotion in the US that allows you to test a foldable Galaxy for 100 days risk-free.

In other words, you can get really comfortable with a foldable Galaxy before deciding whether or not it fits your lifestyle.
