Smartphone: Bill Gates uses a Samsung cell phone

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is privately used by Bill Gates, and the Microsoft founder revealed this in a Q&A session on Reddit recently. Gates wrote that he received a personal cell phone from Samsung President Jay Y. Lee. Previously he had already used fold 3. He appreciates the larger screens of Android foldable mobiles because he doesn’t have to use a tablet.

Gates may feel a little heartache. The fact that Android was able to beat Windows Mobile is one of the biggest mistakes of his career. Gates has confirmed this many times, including V Current Reddit Q&A Again he regretted: He’d like to go back and try a different mobile strategy, Gates wrote when asked about his biggest mistakes at Microsoft. Gates had previously called the losing battle against Android his worst failure of the Microsoft era.

In his current question-and-answer session on Reddit, which he organizes at irregular intervals, Gates also addresses climate change. In one post, he expresses hope that humanity will be able to cope with climate change thanks to technical progress: “The climate will slow down our progress in improving human well-being. But I still believe that we can avoid a terrible outcome,” writes Gates. “The speed of innovation is increasing, although we will not be able to meet the 1.5 degree target.”

The topic of wealth has also been a topic on Reddit: “Being rich can get you going fast,” Gates wrote. However, he considers the drive to start new companies important. The billionaire is clearly in favor of higher taxes for the super-rich: “I think the rich should pay a lot more in taxes and give away their wealth over time.” It was very “satisfactory” for him.

Gates pledged to donate his entire fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The 66-year-old wrote on Twitter: “I will make a list of the world’s richest people and eventually disappear completely.” In the Forbes ranking of the richest people, Bill Gates is currently in seventh place with a fortune of 103.4 billion US dollars.
