About Samsung Galaxy Z Flip - Review, Specs + more

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Astronomical price, sensitive technology and a pocket-busting design - folding phones like the Samsung Galaxy Fold have so far appealed to a technology-loving minority. With Samsung's second folding smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, that should change. Because both in terms of price and handiness, this model is more aimed at normal smartphone users, rather than technophiles. But how does it work in everyday life?

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Folding Smartphone

Galaxy Z Flip: The Experience

If you hold the Galaxy Z Flip in your hand for the first time, you can’t help but grin. Is this small square really a full-blown smartphone? It’s hard to believe. And yet, a few seconds later, it turns into a large, top-of-the-range smartphone with a 6.7-inch display, similar in size to the Galaxy S20 Plus. When opened, the Z Flip is 7 millimeters thin, folded with a camera bulge of 17.3 millimeters. When folded, you could fit two of them in the front pocket of a normal pair of jeans. However when opened, it offers the full functionality of current smartphones. There are similar reasons that made the first clamshell phones successful almost 20 years ago. It's no coincidence that one of the most successful clamshell phones ever returned in 2020 with a very similar concept: the Motorola Razr. Admittedly, unlike the Galaxy Fold, it does not open up any new functions to the user, so it cannot turn into a mini tablet on the train or on the sofa. It is simply not a Fold 2. Because the Fold is a device for power users, it is suitable as an e-book reader or business device. The Galaxy Z Flip goes in a completely different direction.

 

Galaxy Z Flip Display

The flexible OLED display (AMOLED) comes in a page format of 21.9: 9 (almost 22: 9) and has a resolution of 2636x1080 pixels. Like the Samsung Galaxy S20, the front camera is hidden behind a small hole in the middle of the screen, Samsung calls the "Infinity-O-Flex display". The widescreen format is said to be well suited for 21: 9 cinema films, which should also run without black bars, without the front camera hole. It remains to be seen how Netflix and other streaming apps deal with the new page format and the cutout for the front camera. But there is also a second display: When closed, a mini display with 1.06 inches and 300x116 pixels on the outside shows important information, such as network reception and time.

 

Brush trick

Compared to the Galaxy Fold, Samsung has improved the folding construction in two ways: First, Samsung has improved protection against intrusion. As with the Galaxy Fold, the housing opening on the hinge is not closed by any T-shaped plastic parts. But Samsung goes even further with the Galaxy Z Flip: hidden in the housing are small brushes on the hinge that keep any foreign particles away from the hinge and the inside of the display. Time will only tell how well this works in the longrun. In addition, small bumps on the display frame prevent the two halves of the display from lying on top of one another when they are closed and thereby scratching. The display frame is also a bit thicker than the display itself, but this is annoying in everyday swiping gestures. Samsung promises that the Galaxy Z Flip, like the Fold, should be able to withstand 200,000 folding operations, i.e. if it is opened 100 times a day for five years.

 

Galaxy Z Flip: is the display really made of glass?

Samsung's irritation caused the fact that the new folding display consists at least partly of "ultra thin glass", that is to say a development by the German company Schott. When trying it out for the first time, the surface appeared less resilient, i.e. firmer than the Galaxy Fold. But is that why it is scratch-resistant? Since the Galaxy Z Flip is already on the market in the USA, the YouTuber JerryRigEverything was able to subject the folding display to a detailed scratch test. Result: The display of the Galaxy Z Flip is just as sensitive to scratches as that of the Galaxy Fold. It could already be scratched in the test with tools of hardness level 2, while common glass smartphone displays show scratches from level 5 at the earliest. Even with firm pressure with a fingernail, scratches could be caused in the display, which is something to consider if you keep your phone in anything but the most pristine condition.

The same applies here: do not remove the protective film! The question remains: Why is Samsung installing glass if it is covered by a film that cannot be removed? One explanation: the film protects the display, at least can also be replaced by the professional Samsung service. Anyone who signs up for the free Galaxy Premium Service within 30 days of purchase even includes a one-time replacement of the film in the qualified Samsung service, plus one year of Samsung Care + to protect against accidental damage in the form of a one-time repair (subject to a small excess payment).  The hinge trick: hands-free video telephony Samsung has come up with a special design from two interconnected axes when developing the hinge. This so-called "freestop hinge" allows you to open the flip in practically all angular positions between 0 and 180 degrees. If you open the display approximately at a right angle, you can place the Z Flip on the table and use it hands-free. In this folding position, the camera app shows all controls on the flat bottom of the folding display, the camera image in the upright half. Hands-free selfie videos or photos are possible. Good: The position is freely selectable, so you can align the camera’s viewing angle pretty closely to the location of the subject. Alternatively, you can use the Galaxy Z Flip for hands-free video calls. The Google Duo app has already been adapted accordingly for the Galaxy Z Flip. Just a shame that no one uses this app. WhatsApp video telephony or Skype would be more helpful for the majority of smartphone users. But it’s anyone guess whether  Facebook will adapt the Whatsapp app especially for Samsung. Co-operation with Microsoft is more likely, as they are launching their own vision of a clamshell phone with the Surface Duo anyway.

 

Galaxy Z Flip: camera opened and closed

The camera equipment is somewhat more conventional than the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Fold. There are two 12-megapixel cameras on the outside. In addition to the standard camera (aperture f / 1.8), an ultra wide-angle camera (aperture f / 2.2) is installed. With a trick, the main camera can also be used for selfies when closed. You tap the power button twice. The mini display on the front then serves as a miniature viewfinder and shows a section of the selfie camera. You can then trigger by hand gesture (open your hand once in front of the camera lens) or by pressing the volume button. In the test, it worked amazingly well, although the mini-display only showed a small section of its own face. Of course there is also a real selfie camera on the open display (10 megapixels, 4K videos up to 60 FPS).

 

Galaxy Z Flip: Top processor, but no 5G

Als drive is used for the Z Flip of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, which was the fastest Android processor as of the end of last year( also found in the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro). The work pace is consistently fast, even though Qualcomm has now introduced the successor Snapdragon 865. In addition, there are 8 gigabytes (GB) of RAM and a whopping 256 GB of storage space, which unfortunately cannot be expanded. The Snapdragon 855+ can only offer 4G. There is no 5G version of the Galaxy Z Flip. There is only one SIM slot, but the Z Flip can still be used as a dual SIM cell phone via optional eSIM.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Reverse

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: Two batteries

In terms of power storage, Samsung clearly overtakes the new Razr. If only 2,510 milliampere-hours (mAh) are used in Motorola’s folder, the Galaxy Z Flip - with one battery in each half - has a total of 3,300 mAh. For quick charging, the manufacturer provides a 15-watt USB-C power adapter with, wireless charging (wireless charging) is possible up to 12 watts.  Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: price, release, pre-order Though the Galazy Z Flip is cheaper than the Galaxy Fold, it’s still not exactly what you would call a bargain. You can buy one for a shade under £1,500. You only have a choice of two colours with the Galaxy Z flip, and these are Purple Mirror Black Mirror.

 

The Galaxy Z Flip shows that Samsung is serious about the foldable smartphones. It also becomes clear that the technology can not only be used to convert a bulky smartphone into a mini tablet (Galaxy Fold). With concepts such as the Z Flip or Motorola Razr, large smartphones are finally being portable again thanks to new folding display technology. However, initial practical experience shows that Samsung's new folding mobile phone is even more sensitive than a conventional smartphone, even with "Ultra-Thin Glass". In addition to the price, durability is one of the crucial questions on which the success of the new foldables will be decided. It will still take some time before folding phones are just as scratch-resistant and waterproof as current top smartphones without folding technology. And it will take even longer for them to become affordable for the average user like you and me.

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy Z Flip?

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy Z Flip ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Out of our 82 Samsung Galaxy Z Flip deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy Z Flip deal over the entire life of the contract is £1766.00, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Samsung Galaxy Z Flip handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Contract.
