re: The cheaper model has the fingerprint reader mounted on the side of the phone

Which will obviously be the wrong side for a good percentage of the population.

Having it on one side will probably mean that more and more users will opt to use the hand that is closest to that side for their fingerprint "cos it is easier innit?" That's cut the possible choices by 50%.

Security hole anyone?

As for the foldable... How long before 'foldgate' starts appearing on this site in relation to folding problems?
