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...

Well-executed folding display with articulating hinge and improved protection from dust

Still too expensive to justify its form factor

For the rest of us who are not getting one - the key takeaway here is that the foldable race is really on now and it will be a fun one to watch.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review: Admire it, don't buy it

 

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip isn't just the latest foldable phone to hit store shelves -- it's also the least expensive, and the one we enjoy using the most. The main draw here is the design: The Z Flip feels like a perfectly normal smartphone while open...

Flip phone form factor is practical and fun ; Great all-around performance ; Solid camera quality ; It feels like a standard smartphone when open ; It’s the least expensive foldable out there

Inherently more fragile than other phones ; External screen is too small to be helpful ; The main glass screen is still prone to scratching ; Flex Mode is pretty limited ; Less future-proof than more traditional rivals

Its inherent fragility, more than anything, is why I hesitate to embrace the Z Flip more fully. Sure, these things might last longer than Samsung suggests, but we don't live our lives in hermetically sealed labs. The real world is messy. Accidents...

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review: temper your expectations

 

Samsung has made the best folding phone, but that is a low bar right now.

Great performance ; Decent battery life ; Solid-feeling, smooth hinge

Glass screen’s plastic covering picks up scratches easily ; Cameras aren’t as good as S10 or iPhone 11 ; Expensive

At the end of the day, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is still an expensive curiosity that you shouldn’t buy. But it is a sign that something far less curious and far more normal is actually possible.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Review

 

Solid all-around performance. ; L-shaped mode is good for taking photos.

The utility of the folding screen doesn't justify the high price.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the first folding phone to really work, but it's still a costly and potentially fragile fashion object rather than a mainstream hit.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 vs Galaxy S22: What to expect

 

We're all very excited about the Galaxy Z Flip 4, and many of you might be asking yourselves - should I get this new foldable or opt for a conventional flagship, such as the Galaxy S22?

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Review

 

This is an ongoing Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review where I share thoughts and impressions as I use the phone as my daily driver. Here are my thoughts so far after using the Galaxy Z Flip for 5 days.

Outstanding, futuristic design and cool look; Compact when closed, fits in small pockets; Generous 256GB on-board storage

Super expensive for what it is; Screen can be easily scratched or permanently damaged by a fingernail; No water resistance; Having to flip it open for practically anything gets annoying quickly

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review: Love for all the wrong reasons

 

Is Samsung's clamshell-style foldable even worth your money? Find out in this Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review.

Fun, gadget-like feel ; Great build quality ; Good cameras ; Foldable

So-so battery life ; Slow charging

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was a great foldable for its time. Even if the clamshell-style form factor isn't quite as useful as something like the Galaxy Z Fold series, the quality of the hinge and display outweigh the negatives. However, the Galaxy Z...

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip proves the second time is the charm for Samsung's foldable devices. But foldable phones still aren't ready to go mainstream just yet.

Snapdragon 855 Plus is plenty powerful ; Ultra-thin glass aids durability ; Compact design when folded ; Less expensive than other foldables

Subpar battery life ; Exterior smudges easily ; Still pretty pricey at $1,380

or Galaxy S21 Plus, but the advances Samsung made with this device over the Galaxy Fold makes us think that foldable phones actually have a future.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Z Flip | A New Hope For Smartphones Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

 

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the first really successful folding smartphone. And it is especially perfect for you who love to film or take pictures of yourself!

For the first time, the foldable form factor works and gives the user new, creative possibilities. The build quality is good, and the performance is top notch.

Is not dust and water repellent. The front screen could have been bigger, and the camera lacks optical zoom.

When we tested the Samsung Galaxy Fold, we wrote that Samsung had not quite reached the finish line with its first foldable mobile. But those are the ones with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It is slimmer, lighter and more elegant than the Galaxy Fold, and...

Galaxy Z Flip review, two months later: The right phone at the wrong time

 

The progress we've made with folding phones in just the last year is stunning. We went from teasing the concept behind a glass box to several shipping
