24 hours with Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: the foldable that offers more than nostalgia



The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the best modern foldable flip phone I've tested, and it didn't take 24 hours to determine this. OK, sure, there's only one flip-style rival, the new Moto Razr, but the Z Flip beats in every major category.

Walking in New York City with both cell phones attracted a lot of attention. People could not imagine how a smartphone with a large screen – 6.7 inches in the case of the Galaxy Z Flip – could be cut in half. You certainly wanted to fold and unfold it yourself.

I love testing devices for TechRadar that stimulate the imagination, from Google Glass to the DJI Osmo Pocket to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The formula is always the same: people are impressed and ask, "What is that?" and when you are filled in, you start to have ideas about how you would use this technology in your life once it becomes more readily available.

I found this in my first 24 hours with the Galaxy Z Flip. [1

1. The Z Flip is much better than the Moto Razr

The Razr wins with nostalgia – I heard that personally and on Twitter. It didn't matter that I said that the foldable Samsung has a longer battery life, superior cameras, and a slightly stronger thin glass screen. She: "Razr for me. I remember having one." Me: "Yes, but …"

The Z Flip has a larger 3,300 mAh battery (the Razr has a capacity of 2,510 mAh), and it is much easier to recommend a phone that you use supported all day long. Still, I'm going to tell people to stick with the Samsung Galaxy S20 series – the S20 Ultra has a huge 5,000 mAh battery if you don't crave something as unique as the Z Flip.

The Razr cameras were what I struggled with the most. In the poor light of a dark restaurant, the auto focus simply refused to work. Moto's night vision mode helped brighten things up, but when many shots were blurry, it really didn't matter.

The Galaxy Z Flip has three cameras (front, back wide and back ultra-wide) that all take great photos, even if they don't match the quality of the S20 cameras. The Z Flip also includes Samsung's new "single-take" mode, which can take a variety of photos and videos simultaneously for over 10 seconds. It is useful even if it shows a lot of mediocre shots along with some winners.

. 2 I took it on a tour – and it turned my head

Carrying around the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip makes a statement: "I have something completely new that you have never seen before," and that's not the case with any new iPhone happens in quite a while. Earlier.

I took it to two offices, a radio station and a restaurant, and everyone wanted it to fold and unfold. Most people wanted to try it themselves – at least one person was too worried about breaking it to twist it.

The 1.1-inch cover display was small, but it has always proven to be a popular way to take selfies with one hand, even if it's not very effective at framing a picture. Foldables as an updated product category are exciting. Smartphones get a second act.

The best thing is to inspire people's imaginations with the Z Flip. "I could put that and my AirPods Pro in the same pocket," said a friendly stranger in a restaurant. I'm sure Samsung would have loved to have said that about the new Galaxy Buds Plus, but maybe they just converted an iPhone 11 user to this phone.

<h2 id= 3. The technical data are between the S10 and S20 series.

"Is this the best cell phone from Samsung?" This is one of the most common questions I've received from people when I carry the Z Flip around. The answer is both yes and no.

It's Samsung's best concept for the future of smartphones linked to the Galaxy Fold. I found it to be more productive, but far too expensive and likely to be surpassed by a Samsung Galaxy fold 2 in the near future. (I called the fold "the most forward-looking phone you shouldn't buy.") However, neither is the best based on specifications and performance.

The speed of the chipset is hardly important to me these days. Today's phones are fast enough, and when we check something on TechRadar we are less concerned with speed than with whether it is suitable for everyday tasks. It's more about the end value, getting things done, getting photos that look good the first time, and the longevity of the battery on a single charge. That stuff is really important.

The Z Flip sums it all up with specifications that are mostly between what I've seen with the S10 and new S20 series. Significantly, its chipset, the Snapdragon 855 Plus, is the souped-up version of the 855 chip of the S10 and Note 10, but not quite the new Snapdragon 865 chipset of the S20. With healthy 256 GB internal memory, solid 8 GB RAM and three cameras, we get the most modern Samsung phone with excellent, but not the best technical data.

. 4 Everyone wants it to open

Collapsing the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip with two hands is no fun. If you quickly open it and fold it back with one hand, you can bring out this stylish new phone.

It's actually not easy – snapping the seemingly spring-loaded Razr is a lot easier – but that's because Samsung's hinge is supposed to keep it open at any angle of 180 degrees.

I liked keeping the top half of the phone screen upright and letting the bottom half rest on a table as if it were a laptop. This is something the Galaxy Fold couldn't do, and Samsung developed Flex UI software on it.

When you answer a video call, the camera screen appears freely on the top screen while the controls are on the bottom half of the screen. This also means that I can't lean over clumsily over a desk or table to make hands-free video calls while I'm working on a keyboard.

Yes, so it is possible to open the phone with a lot of strength and style. It is not exactly easy and there are good reasons for it.

5. This just seems to be the beginning

I can't say if the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is right for me – it takes more than 24 hours with the new phone to decide its practicality, test its cameras and battery to discharge a few times. There are many more tests to be done, so you have to wait for our full review.

The best devices change life – they don't have to be all revolutions like the iPhone, but if they do your daily life is a little bit better, even if it fits a little easier in your pocket than your previous device. Then the often rather malicious technology makes us happy.

I believe in the Galaxy Fold design because I have long wanted something the size of an iPad mini that I can use on the train and put in my pocket without having to keep it in a pocket. I hope Samsung continues this design for productivity users like me.

But the Z Flip? It's the fanciest phone I've seen checking smartphones in my time, and I love getting back pocket space when it folds up like a shell. There is room for two foldable designs, and this brings back some of the things we loved and missed about flip phones.
