To this date, every foldable came to market had some issues. Royal’s flexPai seems unfinished, the Galaxy fold had some glaring design problems, Huawei’s Mate has impressed the audience at last year’s Mobile World Congress but still in the testing phase the company never fully recovered from, and the Moto Razr failed to live up to the hype. Although the Galaxy Z flip seems different than all of these foldable, it comes with just okay performance, decent camera, and not so good battery life at a whopping price of $1,380. The phone isn’t even future proof although it claims to have at least 2000 flips this seems further from true.
Foldable phones are way expensive than traditional phones. Galaxy z flip is also fragile and app developers are still confused about how to take advantage of the flex-mode. Purchasing this phone is more like paying for being the beta tester. The external screen is too small to be of any help. The main screen is prone to scratches due to opening and closing. There is some noticeable “brushing” sound as called by the Samsung to clear the dust or particles that go into the Galaxy z flip.
The device when unfolded is 6.7” had has a foldable dynamic AMOLED display with 1080 x 2636 resolution. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, octa-core, Adreno 640. The memory is 8GB RAM with 256 built-in storage. The Galaxy Z flip comes with android 10 with OneUI 2.0 out of the box. It has a 12MP wide camera lens, 12MP ultra-wide lens at the rear side. For the front camera, it uses a 10MP camera. The battery is only 3300mAh and has 15W fast charging. Although, the company is claiming the durability of 5 years I seriously doubt their claim and this has to be found shortly.
