Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: The best foldable phone!

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

This is the samsung galaxy z fold 2 5g and i'm going to show you all the reasons why it's the foldable to get in 2020. i'm andrew martinick with digital trends and i'm going to go over every way that samsung took the galaxy fold and turned it up a notch for 2020 with the galaxy z fold 2 5g it really comes down to three main areas an overall spec increase a complete change to the way that the hinge functions and brand new screens front and back

the big upgrade for the galaxy z fold 2 is on the inside the specs and features that you can't see where samsung is really justifying this high price with all of the specs from the galaxy s20 and note 20 ultra so that means you're getting a snapdragon 865 you're getting 12 gigabytes of ram and you're getting this triple camera that'll be very familiar to anybody that's seen a modern samsung phone has a standard camera an ultra wide camera and a 2x

Zoom camera so you're really getting the top of the line camera experience out of any phone foldable or otherwise in this foldable form factor which is fantastic to see you also get the rest of samsung's core galaxy features in terms of fast wireless charging reverse wireless charging for smart watches and other accessories and fast wired charging through usbc and you're getting regular stereo speakers out of the top and bottom so when you hold it in landscape you get a much more immersive experience

To meet that big screen now a foldable phone especially one this big is only as good as its hinge and samsung found that out very very quickly with the original fold that had this same design externally but had a different hinge mechanism entirely to let dust and debris inside the hinge and ultimately inside to the screen with the galaxy z-fold 2 the hinge is completely redesigned and you'll notice that it has more of an infinity style hinge

That can hold the screen at any angle samsung officially supports it between 75 and 115 degrees so you can use it at different angles whether you're holding it vertical or not but of course it still snaps flat and locks into this position using cams all along the interior of the hinge but the big part of the hinge that brings so much reliability to this model over the previous one is it actually has little bristles all along the inside of the hinge

And new end caps on the outside so that every time you open and close this phone with that satisfying click on both ends of course the bristles lift out little bits of dust and keep them from going inside the hinge mechanism and of course when it's open like this it's fully sealed and closed now it's not good enough to give it a dust resistance rating but it should be good enough to keep this phone working for months and years to come even the second generation of the first

Galaxy fold was a big upgrade in reliability and i have no doubt that this one is miles ahead of that old design the biggest change to the experience of using the galaxy z fold 2 are the displays of course there are two displays the cover display on the outside is now usable the first one really was just for show it was so small you could barely interact with it but this is a 6.2 inch display with obviously much smaller bezels so even when this

Thing is folded over and it's like 17 millimeters thick and it weighs 280 grams it's still very usable as a regular phone in one hand there's plenty of room to swipe around use your widgets and apps you can scroll through feeds send messages even if the keyboard is a little cramped but you're not going to use it that way all that often the big appeal of the fold is of course the interior display and this one is dramatically improved as

Well it's 7.6 inches diagonally and the bezels are also shrunk here about 25 and the panel itself is improved as well it has a 120 hertz refresh rate all the way across the panel and it adjusts to whatever content is on the screen to give you the most optimal smoothed out experience it really looks fantastic just like samsung's other phones you've also lost the notch in the corner replaced just by a regular hole punch display and this crease yes you do notice it on camera

And in photos people are going to point it out but when you're using the phone it really starts to fade away mentally especially when you're using two different apps side by side they align right on the crease and samsung is hoping that the crease isn't going to be getting worse because this display is covered by a utg or ultra thin glass display covering just like the galaxy z flip now i'm sure you're thinking with two screens one a massive folding screen on the inside and all these extra specs and

Features the battery life is taking a hit well there's a 4 500 milliamp hour battery in here which is the same size as the galaxy s20 plus just like all of the other specs are the same as that phone now my experience with that phone is that even with a 120 hertz display you can still get a full day of battery life out of it and i expect the same out of the galaxy z-fold 2. now the original galaxy fold didn't have that greater battery life but it also had a less efficient

Processor inside so with all the improvements samsung's made here you can expect really good battery life but our full assessment will have to wait for our complete review so that's everything you need to know about the galaxy z fold 2 5g samsung's best foldable phone yet and arguably the best foldable phone you can get even with a suggested price of two thousand dollars be sure to stick with digital trends for more news and a full review of the

Galaxy z flip 2 5g and of course all of the coverage that you expect from every tech category
