NSFW    'MURICA — Samsung users are complaining that their brand new foldable smartphones are breaking after just a few days of use, The Verge reports.

The company claims that its new smartphones are able to withstand 200,000 folds and unfolds.

Four smartphone reviewers were using the phone when they realized that the screens were flashing on and off and seemed to be disconnecting, CNBC reports.

Reviewers with The Verge and Bloomberg noted that they "accidentally" removed a protective film that was on the screen.

Another youtube tech reviewer said he had the same issue after removing the protective layer.

Samsung quickly released a statement urging users not to remove the protective film on the phone screen.
