Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: Flip or Fold?

by birtanpublished on September 17, 2020

Hey it's Josh a Vergara what's going on everybody that's right here it is the Samsung Galaxy Z flip okay so by now you probably have heard a lot about this new foldable by Samsung it's not necessarily the follow-up to the Galaxy fold but it does take some of those design cues in

Order to recreate the flip phone in the smartphone world there are a couple of reasons why this is significant because now we have what could be amounted to an upgraded Galaxy S 10 plus made into a form factor that can shrink down a

Little bit by folding it down and making it more pocketable for those who want to have a smaller form factor until they actually need their smartphone the actual phone is designed quite well you have a couple of different colors at

Least for the time being a mere purple and a mere black with a mirror gold coming a little bit later and that one does look pretty dope going around the outer edges you will see that there is a fingerprint reader embedded into the

Power button but that power button also will pull double-time when the phone is closed because when you double press it it will turn on those rear cameras with a tiny little screen on its side that allows you to take a selfie without

Having to open up the phone aside from that that tiny little secondary screen can be used for just notifications and that hinge folds down the Infinity flex display the 6.7 inch ultra thin glass display yeah this is glass not plastic

It is akin to a 22 by 9 aspect ratio and the worst of the video files in there that actually stretched across the entire display and have to admit it looked really nice overall the materials of the Z flip just feel premium enough

That you don't have to worry about the Lema shiz or creases or bubbles happening on the screen because it is made of glass you can't slam the phone down too easily however because the hinge does have a little bit of

Resistance as it should because you want to protect the glass display and you don't want to just smashing on top of itself all the time so you can still have a lot of fun with this phone but Samsung put in a few extra features in

Order to take advantage of these specifications which are still high-end those include the Snapdragon 850 5 plus 8 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of internal storage rounding out those specs is a 3300

Milliamp hour battery so ever since unpacked up and think the question flip or fold and I have to give Samsung a lot of credit for taking the form factor of the Z flip and making it really useful that's not to say the

Galaxy folds form factor isn't useful on the contrary you still get a nice screen on the outside while opening it up to get a much bigger tablet sized screen for more screen real estate and for more fun for work and play so when you bring

It down to a flip smartphone finding ways of using that form factor is pretty creative for example you can put the phone down and just bring up the hinge to a certain angle turn on the camera and you will be able to easily take a

Selfie with the phone stationary and propped up so you can take it without any jitters with someone's hands you can even use the rear cameras in this configuration as well which eliminates the need for you to prop up a regular

Smartphone on like a glass or on the wall or with any object that might be on the table by the way the cameras are a 10 megapixel front facing camera with dual cameras on the back 12 and 12 a regular camera and a wide-angle and one

Thing you'll notice about the interface especially in this camera segment is that it's splitting the interface with the bottom portion having the controls and the top portion being the viewfinder of course that makes a lot of sense for

This kind of shooting scenario but splitting the screen is also what the Z flip does really well when you do the multi window that is already part of one UI it will adhere to the actual crease in the middle that way you have a

Perfect cut in the middle between your two applications this flex mode is something that you might actually see in regular smartphones but it does help that you have literally a fold in the middle of the display to illustrate this

Particular multi window functionality beautifully so fortunately one of the takeaways from the galaxy Z flip is that for the vast majority of the time you are going to use it opened up it's not going to be like the fold where you can

Get some functionality done without having to make it bigger however this is going to be a form factor that I think many people out there who want to minimize their kids might be really interested in it and of course that

Factors in the whole nostalgia trip the whole idea of having flip phones once again is really exciting after all we did have a big hubbub about the Moto razor and now Samsung has achieved their version of it which might be better than

The Moto razor in a lot of different ways overall it's a great phone that happens to have a neat trick and that's the reason why it is priced a little high at thirteen hundred and eighty dollars and it is available

On Valentine's Day February 14 of all days available at Samsung comm it stores places like Best Buy and certain carriers in the US I will tell you that I'm going to pick one up immediately and that's the other

Reason why I thought about Flip versus fold I held off on the samsung galaxy fold mainly because of its price point I understand that this form factor is new especially in terms of the galaxy folds but I just wasn't able to fathom paying

That much for it just yet but with the galaxy Z flip it's not quite as for rendus a price it is still a little bit high but then again this is the beginning of these form factors the beginning of maybe the resurrection of

The flip phone revolution so I am going to pick one up and you can look forward to an unboxing and of course a full review of the coming students in my channel I just want to post a question to all of you flip or fold let me know
