Samsung Z Fold 2 Unboxing, Setup and First Look

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

Hi everyone aaron here for zollotech and we're going to unbox the samsung z-fold 2 5g we'll unbox it set it up and take a first look at it and this particular phone comes in at 2 000 it's the most expensive phone i've ever purchased and it comes in two different colors you've got mystic bronze and this one mystic black so let's go ahead and take a look at it so i've been looking forward to this phone for quite some time because i've never tried a folding phone that actually goes from smaller to bigger

So let's go ahead and open it up i've got my unboxing tool here let's go ahead and slice that and there we go and like i said this one is in mystic black so it's a little bit different than what i've seen i actually haven't seen one of these in person either so it unfolds like that it says change the shape of the future introducing the galaxy z fold to 5g reimagine the possibilities of the smartphone experience unlock endless versatility and enjoy unrivaled engineering and craftsmanship

Welcome to the new mobile era okay let's see if what we've gotten here so of course there's the phone we'll look at that in a moment let's open this up our little documentation or pamphlet here so we have a separate piece with just a sim card removal tool we've got a quick start or quick reference guide and then get the most out of your phone so let's go ahead and remove the phone see what's underneath so it's a pretty good size let's see

What we've got here we've got the galaxy z premier service and then underneath we've got a charger it's usbc and we get a cable with it so it looks like it opens like this and we've got a cable it should be usb c to usbc and it is it's a black usb c to usbc cable and that is all we get in this box so no headphones or anything like that there's no additional tools to help us move our phone from one to the other so let me set the box aside now this is the phone itself and it says care

Instructions it says do not press on the screen or the front camera lens with hard or sharp objects such as a pen or fingernail when folding the device make sure there is no objects in the way such as cards coins or keys the device is not dust or waterproof says exposure to liquid or small particles such as water coffee or sand may cause product damage such as scratches or dents on the screen do not remove the screen protector film and do not install other films or stickers as doing so may cause product

Damage your device contains magnets keep a safe distance between your device and objects that may be affected by them and then there's the back of it so let's go ahead and remove this cover here so we'll move that out of the way and here's the device itself and so you can see a crease down the center of it although i'm not sure that will be a pain unless i'm using it and then on the outside of course we have the phone in this mystic black

Color now for a size comparison before we look at it a little bit further here is a note 25 g or note 20 ultra 5g rather so this gives you a little bit of an idea it's a little bit shorter from top to bottom but obviously it's definitely wider from width-wise and then thickness-wise when it's unfolded the z-fold 2 looks a little bit thinner and then weight-wise also there's a little bit of a difference so the weight of the z-fold 2 is 282 grams or 9.95 ounces

And the note 20 ultra is 208 grams now if you're coming from the iphone world the iphone is 226 grams or 7.97 ounces and that's the 11 pro max so you can see the size comparison next to it and then one more size comparison next to the microsoft duo so here's the duo and this will give you an idea of its actual size so the duo is much wider but of course it's got two split screens so even if we rotate it this way you can kind of see the difference here between the two devices

So let's go ahead and take a closer look at the z-fold 2. so let me go ahead and fold it and it is fairly thick but it feels very premium now they do offer a different color option you can have this hinge here customized in a color and then let's take a look around the outside edge so on the outside of course you have that display we'll talk about the displays in a moment on the right hand side you've got your power button slash fingerprint reader and then

Above that you have your volume rocker on the top of the phone you have what looks like a microphone as well as a speaker and then on the bottom of the phone you've got your usbc charge port next to a microphone as well as another speaker and so there's nothing else around the outside of the phone other than down at the very bottom right you have your sim card tray now let's go ahead and pop that out and take a closer look at it so we'll pop out the sim card tray and it should support

One sim card and then it has an e sim there is no upgradable storage in this option so internally this has 256 gigabytes of non-expandable storage some areas may be able to get 512 gigabytes but not at least here in the united states yet now this outside display is a 6.2 inch display measured diagonally so it's very tall and it's an hd plus super amoled display it's 2260 by 816 pixels with 386 pixels per inch it runs at 60 hertz and then at the top of the display we

Have a forward-facing camera that's 10 megapixels it's a selfie camera with an f 2.2 aperture with an 80 degree field of view and it's the same camera that we get on the display inside as well it's the same exact 10 megapixel camera they've just put one in each location now the internal display let's go ahead and turn it on we'll boot it up hopefully it's got a charge there we go it's booting up now this internal display measured diagonally is 7.6 inches and it's a qx ga dynamic

Amoled 2x it's 2208 by 1768 with 373 pixels per inch supports hdr 10 plus and is 120 hertz now before we set this up let's talk about the rear facing camera so we have a three camera array very similar to what we have on the note 20 ultra although it's smaller the camera bump is a little bit smaller there so you can see it's a little different a little smaller i kind of like the note one better but either way it's a camera bump and it has three cameras in it the top camera is a 12 megapixel ultra wide with

An f 2.2 aperture with a 123 degree field of view below that is a 12 megapixel wide angle with optical image stabilization and it has an f 1.8 aperture with dual pixel autofocus and an 83 degree field of view and then on the bottom we have a 12 megapixel telephoto again with optical image stabilization and an f 2.4 aperture we also can record in 4k 60 with these cameras so it should be pretty good now internally it's running a qualcomm

Snapdragon 865 plus with an adreno 650 gpu and 12 gigabytes of ram so it should be nice and fast and then also the battery is 4500 milliamp hours split from side to side so they're sharing it it supports fast wireless charging and fast charging and it also has wireless power share it supports 5g sub 6 and millimeter wave has 802.11 a b g n ac and ax wi-fi so wi-fi six as well as bluetooth 5.0 ultra wide band and it runs android 10.

So let's go ahead and set it up so we'll hit let's go it says terms and conditions privacy policy we'll hit next some of it's optional now it's checking for updates now that we're connected to wi-fi so we'll wait for that now that it's checked for an update it didn't find anything initially saying do you want to copy apps and data now i did decide to bring over data from one phone to another so i thought i'd try that so let's go ahead and set up i guess fingerprints here

And we've got the fingerprint reader on the side so i guess we'll put my finger here there we go i added my fingerprint i'll go ahead and hit next and it says adding finishing touches now that everything with my fingerprints set up it wants me to sign into my samsung account now it says all done i'll hit next and it says before you get started it's rewarning me about not pressing on the screen wrong we'll hit done and also all of my data has been copied as well so i'll go ahead

Ahead and unplug this so this is the home screen of the z-fold 2. so you've got your standard apps installed such as google you also have microsoft and here are the standard apps facebook let's see if we can remove it we can uninstall that if we'd like and that's it so this is all of the standard pre-installed apps of course it's going to install more since i brought a bunch over but you get the idea that's pretty nice and then also if we close this on the outside we now have

This display and this is actually kind of interesting like a candy bar display unlock it and we're at the home screen so again we have a customizable screen here and then one inside of course we've got the camera as well so we go to the camera and then let's see what we've got photos it says done copying and so for photos let's go to our settings and see what we've got so if we scroll down you can see rear video size front video size so front video

Resolution wise we have 3840 by 2160 up to 60 frames per second and then also rear we should have the same so again we have uhd or ultra hd so if you want to capture 4k video with video stabilization auto hdr grid lines and more and so if we go back here flip it around takes a second and now you can see me on the display so it looks okay it's definitely doing some face smoothing let's open it up here see what we've got

And just from setup the phone is getting quite warm on the back here so it's getting quite warm i'm sure that's fine with setup but you can see here's one of the sort of layouts you can do it's kind of interesting take a photo like this scroll through go home and then let's go to youtube and so here's my note 20 ultra 5g unboxing if i rotate it this way it rotates to the center it says this app is using full screen

Can swipe up to go back and honestly you don't really see the crease too much when you're using it so that looks okay let me turn it up to hear the speakers later in the video now this samsung note 20 ultra 5g it's sort of a handful of a word comes in at 1 nine dollars with 128 gigabytes of storage so that looks pretty nice the speakers sound decent they are stereo speakers this the display does have a little bit of a ripple there let's add the weather information

So watching youtube videos on this should be pretty good with stereo speakers let's take a look at some of the settings here we'll go ahead and go to our settings scroll down see if we have a software update see if we have anything even though it said we didn't before and we do have a software update so i'll install that a little bit later so under the software information it says it's running one ui version 2.5 and android 10 and then this particular device should be interesting to use i've never

Used a phone that gets bigger into a tablet and you can see here some of the other apps that installed for me and it should be really interesting to use using the outside screen seems like it'd be pretty reasonable if we go home you'll see it's nice and fast and also let's take a look at those screen refresh rate options so let's go into settings here under display you can see the brightness is quite low right now it goes very bright

Turn it down and then it has motion smoothness adaptive and then let's see what we've got here so it's the adaptive 120 hertz display and it runs in full resolution so we don't lose resolution like we do on the note 20 ultra so you've got standard where it'll slow down to 60 hertz to give you better battery life but that's really it so i'll be using this phone for a little while and i'd love to hear what you think about folding phones in the comments below i think they're pretty interesting

We're early on and i like that there's innovation with things like the surface duo with really solid hardware and new attempts at different sort of form factors the z-flip is interesting i know some people really like that but let me know your thoughts about it in the comments below if you'd like to get your hands on this wallpaper of course i'll link that in the description as well and if you haven't subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like

As always thanks for watching i'll see you next time foreign
