Samsung Galaxy Fold Review

Score: 97.6 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Fold is an absolutely amazing phone released in September 2019, featuring an extremely powerful 2840 megahertz Octa-Core CPU, a big size 7.3 inches screen, a 12 MP back side camera and a 10 MP front-facing camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's just the introduction of this in-depth review.

Samsung made a very nice job making the Fold as lightweight as 9.74 oz. This phone is for sale in 2 colors, cosmos black and space silver. Though the Fold is only 6.33" long, it still manages to hold a 7.3" display. This cellphone is incredibly thin and comfortable, being just 0.27" thick.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy Fold with an awesome 7.3 inches screen, and a 1536 x 2152 resolution, which makes everything look vivid and colorful.

Samsung equipped this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, backed up by a very powerful 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit and a huge 12 GB of RAM. A great aspect of this device is its inmense 512 GB internal storage and although it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to store lots of apps, games, songs, pictures and videos without having to worry about how much storage capacity is left.

The Fold provides wifi connection (and it can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 5G amazingly fast connection type, LTE-A 4G high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Fold comes with 2 Nano SIM cards to be able to to use 2 different phone lines in the same phone.

The Fold is equipped with two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 10 MP front-facing camera. this cellphone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of F1.5 so it can capture very nice photographs even in dark environments. The Fold can also film 4K 3840x2160 videos at 60 fps, and slow motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) at 960 fps (32 times slower than normal videos). Additionally, the camera counts with auto-focus.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold also comes with a wide range of great features such as Fingerprint Reader, Facial recognition biometrics, Wireless charging system, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.0, EDR ) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone features a 4380 mAh big capacity Li - Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide this phone with an amazing battery duration. An issue to consider is that the Fold's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, even though with this big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

This phone is very overvalued considering it costs $ 1980, while other similar phones are a lot cheaper than that. If you are looking for a gamer phone, you love taking pictures, want this cellphone for work or are looking for a device to mostly use social networks, you will probably love this cellphone. When you buy this phone you also receive AC adapter (quick charge), Galaxy Buds, USB-C cable, Kevlar slim case and Quick Start Guide .
