Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G review

 

We could have sworn that Samsung's original plunge into foldable displays was not that long ago. It definitely feels that way. Yet, here we are with the...

Improved durability and materials, further refined design and smaller hinge gap.

Hinge gap is still present and even the new tougher display protector is still soft and susceptible to damage.

The Z Fold3 is a truly awe-inspiring device that makes the most of its form factor and current tech capabilities. Samsung truly succeeded in creating a device that can do it all. Unfortunately, the reality is that a lot still needs to be sacrificed to...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: nearly normal

 

The best we'll see until there's another tech breakthrough.

Water resistant ; Vastly improved screen feel ; Multitasking on Android much better

Terrible under-screen selfie camera ; Heavy and awkward as a phone ; Expensive

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable phone turns into an Android tablet. It features S-Pen stylus support, water resistance, and a more durable screen. Unfortunately, it also has a terrible under-screen selfie camera.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: You can almost forgive how expensive it is

 

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3's improved durability, price and S Pen support are great, but are they enough?

Unique and useful design ; Bright, vivid 120Hz displays ; Stellar triple camera array ; IPX8 water resistance ; S Pen support

Expensive ; Bulky vs. traditional phone ; Still lacks dust resistance

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 fixes some of our biggest concerns with its predecessor with enhanced durability and improvements to the cover display, but it remains too expensive and bulky to recommend for many buyers.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Review

 

The future makes skeptics of us all, and folding phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 still face an uphill battle. While the third generation of the range-topping foldable costs less than its pr…

Foldable design feels like the future of phones ; One UI 3 makes apps usable on an Android tablet ; Cheaper than previous Fold models ; Waterproofing adds reassurance

Still incredibly expensive for a phone ; Cameras are good, but not stand-out ; Under-display camera is distracting ; S Pen sold separately and there's nowhere to store it

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 review: the story unfolds

 

We put the Galaxy Z Fold 3 through its paces — is this the first book foldable worth buying?

Solid build and feel, stable hinge ; Excellent screens in and out ; Both displays are 120 Hz ; Improved software experience for multitasking ; Smooth performance ; Good speakers

Folded, the phone is awkwardly thick and tall ; S Pen is a separate purchase, which means most will miss out ; Still has visible crease

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G review: Samsung is hands down leading the foldables race

 

Oh my, so much to unpack here, but the essence of it all is that Samsung is hands down leading the foldables race with the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G.

The Z Fold3 and its little brother the Z Flip3 are the best designed foldable on the market ; Big improvements over previous generations ; Foldable design delivers a lot of flexibility ; Nice design and nice materials ; Flagship features ; Great...

Expensive ; Life of display and hinge is still not completely tested in the real world ; There is cause to worry about dust in the hinge ; Our unit got scratches on the front display from coming into contact with sand ; Not enough Flex Mode apps ; No...
