With the presentation of the new Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung seems to have done things in a different way as the normal phone is that it can be folded in half and reduce its volume, in the same way that its devices age of 90 did.
The foldable Funny start of the previous season did not have large projects, especially when presenting the screen sizes tablet and try to compress it into a more traditional portable format.
Obviously, the feature of the form is a matter of taste, but for the money we paid, the compact design of the Z Flip seems to be the winning bet today. And although this stretch is still a weakness, its success has been shown to be able to eliminate mistakes in scoring.
If I speak the truth, we love Galaxy Z Flip, and as far as we’re concerned, it’s proof that mobiles are not just phones of the future – this is one of the best phones you can buy right now.
Design and production quality
Similar to the Motorola Razr, this Flip Z pulls from the popular ’90s Funny, so its 6.7-inch screen folds and space, closing the shell’s shape almost square.
The phone is 167mm in length when they occur, but when closed it’s only 87 x 73mm, small enough to hold in one hand or keep it in his shirt pocket.
Of course, it’s a little stiff when closed (17.3mm, when most phones are less than 10), but it’s not heavy, and you have to admit it’s worth it when you think for a fact you won’t stick out of your pocket.
It also helps that turning on a mobile phone is still a luxury. The hinge looks against the deal time to time, in addition to that one can not function properly without excessive pressure, in one hand.
During our testing, we have guaranteed that to be a great asset, the first few days you will be reluctant to turn on the phone in any case. It also drops several times, when it has to be added that there are no signs of occupants, damage or wear of the device or mirror.
Point here is that Samsung does not inaluphi type lokuhlukaniswa of the IP to prevent water. And let’s not forget that being able to fold the phone while it is carried in your bag, greatly reduces the chance of scratching the screen.
Being plastic used in the Galaxy Fold, Samsung has upgraded to what it calls ‘ultra-thin glass’ because of the Flip Z, although it is still largely plastic, with a small amount of glass in the top layer making it durable.
Folds directly guilt unwanted effect: As you pass through the applications, you will hear the explosion of the screen hinge. It’s subtle not particularly annoying, but there, and even after two weeks of daily use, we still enjoy it.
We do not think it would be a good decision to buy, but you should know that this department is there and that you will not soon forget it. It looks like it is one of the taxes should be willing to pay, at least for now this generation.
However, that’s not the only mobile mirror. One of the best features of the Flip Z is its 1.1-inch screen that is installed without a phone. When closed, will show the time, date, and battery, and notification icons and control music.
The touch controls are a bit vicious – swiping can be difficult and sometimes very much is needed to get up the screen, but ultimately deadly it does its job.
It is an AMOLED panel printed in bright colors. It is for Samsung to be able to see the notification icons pigments: green on WhatsApp, blue with Twitter, etc., But also because inenketho to use the small screen as the camera.
This way, you will be able to check not only the effect of yourself before taking them, but also if you photograph something without having to happen mobile.
Samsung has applied for another series of smart design touch. This is a subtle thing: Volume management controls can be waived if you close the phone, so it sits higher up the volume button button below elicishayo.
Next to the volume control, you will find the fingerprint sensor mounted on the side of the power button, though unfortunately its response can improve.
We have found that such a physical sensation that we have not preached to him has been using some of the shots without being able to reach conclusions about why it is less effective. It is simply not see the finger at certain times, compared to the trust shown in many others.
You can buy the Galaxy Z Flip with black, gold or only purple like the one shown in our photos. With its pink tint and the author’s finish, it is enjoyable even though she must also say that it is very attractive for steps.
According to Spec, the Flip Galaxy Z has a few interesting choices. Among other things, the main chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+. That was Banner from the year 2019, although now replaced by the Snapdragon 865.
Samsung’s choice of a slightly older version is partly an effort so as not to cost down with its final price, and partly because of the extra space needed inside to get 865’s 5G modem.
It turned out that the Flip Z’s only immediate effect was that 4G, although since 5G is still in its infancy, that doesn’t seem to be a serious problem. It means that the work is left a little after that we see on the phone more than 2020 Premium.
However, don’t be the numbers, as the Flip Z is still an amazing phone that is fast and powerful, and should work in acceptable and handy cutting edge apps for the next two to three years.

Samsung includes an 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. That’s enough to carry loads, but be aware that there is no additional microSD slot support, so you won’t be able to expand this further.
The AMOLED screen looks really good, despite the brightness, with a Refresh rate of 60 Hz (far from 90 or 120 Hz) but the distance allowed for solid colors South Korean has become accustomed to.
Indeed it will not be the same good quality of exposures to other phones like OnePlus 8 Pro, or a line of Samsung S20 Samsung. But now, that’s just one indication of the commitments that you will have to accept to wrap up mobile format.
As for battery life, it has impressed me how much you can transfer its independence based on its battery capacity of only 3300 mah. We have timed the battery before going to bed, and as a general rule, the amount did not come down under 20% of the value of perfection. That will be more painful in the long run, but a solid start.
15W fast charging and acceptable, although competition continues with faster models. The beginning of the fees payable in zero years, we have been able to reach 45% of charging more than half an hour, harmless. It supports wireless charging although it is slow.
Is already involved in the functioning cameras, it should be mentioned that the Samsung ibilondoloze compared to the best of its calls of the Galaxy S and Note possible to obtain details of Ott 100x Space Zoom in S20 Ultra.
So, the main Flip Z camera is a 12 MP, f / 1.8 lens with dual-pixel autofocus and image stabilization. Although it may seem far from the top now, we must say that the same is the main existing Galaxy S10 sensor.
Abloom and powerful, detailed and, without autofocus attack other Galaxy phones S20.
The stunning colors (Samsung’s Text Camera trading), does a good job of backlighting and handling skin tones properly.
We appreciate that he may lack a variety to use. Near the main lens, we find a mode of 10 MP selfie inside, and that’s all await you in the face in the photos section. No Telephoto lens, no depth sensor.
Due to these specifications, it appears to Samsung to optimize the results. with your softwareYou will be able to deal with portrait mode, night mode, and even ‘Take Single’ mode is seen on the S20 phones which contain a variety of pictures and short clips.
Speaking of video, there is no 8K support, but you can shoot 4K video at 60fps. Finally, the most important thing there is here and managed properly. If your eyes are capturing just photos, you will see that you have similar functions to other quality flagships.
Price and availability
Finally, all to prices. As it is a mobile wrap, it should come as no surprise that the Flip Galaxy Z is more expensive than usual, but when we do consider other models to wrap the market, even it seems cheaper.
It can be purchased Black Mirror and Purple Mirror colors, with the possibility of single storage capacity and 4G network.
The Galaxy Z Flip is not a perfect phone, but of access being one. It’s still more expensive, the cameras lack more variety, and the fingerprint needs to be improved.
However, apart from the prices, these are minor drawbacks, and although they may not be the best phone we’ve used this year, we are undoubtedly one of our favorites for its difference.
With Flip Z, Samsung has nailed down compact folding form factor, and when compared to the methods now you will find on the market, should be that no other 2020 flagship will be so compact and easy to transport.
As a final note, we must remember that its functionality is strong and has features. Most people probably shouldn’t spend a fortune on a phone, but if you can afford it, Z Flip won’t disappoint.
