We’ve all heard of Motorola’s Razr Foldable phone … Well, Samsung as just announced their . The Galaxy Z Flip is probably one of the most interesting phones of 2020. Let’s take a look over at Engadget for a “hands-on”
Taken from Engadget … Samsung’s experience releasing the Galaxy Fold means the Galaxy Z Flip benefits from extra polish and forethought. Oh, and much better components. In case you hadn’t been keeping track, the Z Flip packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ chipset, plus 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You’ll also find 12MP wide and ultra-wide cameras on the back of the Z Flip’s top half, a 10MP front-facing camera in a center-aligned screen cutout, and an eSIM in addition to a nanoSIM slot.
Put another way, it’s just about as capable as the best phones money could buy last year; that’s something you just can’t say about the Razr. Performance in our very limited hands-on time was, well, exactly what you’d expect: Remarkably quick across the board. It’s always tough getting a sense for how fast a phone is when you don’t have more than a half-hour to play with it, but it’s clear even now that in terms of pure power, the Z Flip is no slouch.
A few other notes:
- Instead of a spacious external display like the Razr’s, Samsung chose a much smaller, 1-inch OLED that’s basically just good for glancing at the time. It’s cute but feels less than ideal. You can, however, use it to frame up selfies, which is I guess all that matters to people.
- Despite Samsung’s big 5G push with the Galaxy S20s, the Z Flip doesn’t support these next-gen networks at all.
- The dual-camera setup Samsung is using here isn’t nearly as ambitious as the S20’s, but the Z Flip does have the Single Take feature that captures multiple stills and video clips over a span of about ten seconds.
- These phones are pretty handsome, all things considered, but man do they pick up fingerprints like crazy.
