Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review
Samsung wowed everyone last year when it introduced the Galaxy Fold. Sure, it took a few months to figure out the kinks after the first batch of units saw some fatal manufacturing defects. Once figured out, though, the Galaxy Fold turned out to be one of those milestone devices that would change the industry forever.
The Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung's second-generation folding device, and the company's first-generation Galaxy Z product. In both cases, the Galaxy Z Flip is a unique device - combining the nostalgic form factor from almost two decades ago with the brilliance of Samsung's second-generation Hideaway Hinge and flexible display technology.
The AMOLED screen has a punch hole cut-out for the 10MP selfie camera and the dual 12MP cameras look promising. The Z Flip also keeps some of the flagship Galaxy's charging features like wireless charging and Power Share (reverse wireless charging). The 3,300 mAh battery seems a bit small, though.
The Galaxy Z Flip sees a couple of improvements in the hinge, as well as a new protective material in front of the display which Samsung calls "UTG" or Ultra Thin Glass. This glass is protected by the same polymer material as the Galaxy Fold so it's still not as scratch resistant as your typical Gorilla Glass handset.
The Galaxy Fold's specs aren't groundbreaking, but they are certainly not midrange by any means. It's running the 2019 Snapdragon 855+ with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage - so it's basically a flagship Samsung Galaxy phone on the inside.
