Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Review

Score: 10.54/10

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is an absolutely great cellphone released in February, packed with a large 6.7 inches screen, an extremely fast 2960 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 10 megapixels front camera.

This cellphone is just 0.28 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest device's category. This phone is just 6.59 inches long, but it is still able to fit a a 6.7" screen. The Z Flip is much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this. About its design, this device is mainly created with Aluminum . The Z Flip is for sale in 2 different colors, mirror black and mirror purple.

Samsung decided to equip this cellphone with a high performance 2960 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SM8150-AC system chip with a big 8 GB of RAM. A key advantage of this phone is its huge 256 GB internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't count with an SD memory slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications without having to worry about filling the phone.

This phone features two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 10 MP front-facing camera. Its back facing camera lens has a 1.8 aperture so it can capture great photos even in dark situations. It can also shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 960 frames per second (32 times slower than reality). Additionally, this device's camera also includes time lapse video and auto-focus.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip with a incredible 6.7 inches display, and a 1080 x 2636 resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the display.

This device includes wifi connection (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super quick data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone supports dual SIM so it can to use two different carriers or phone numbers.

This phone also comes with lots of interesting features like Fingerprint Scanner, Facial recognition to unlock, Wireless charging, NFC, Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth phones and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip uses a 3300 mAh incredible Li - Polymer non-removable battery, which is quite poor for a highly demanding device like this. A key issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, leaving no choice but to buy a new phone.

This device is priced around $ 1380, not a really offer for this kind of phone. No matter if you need a phone to mostly use social networks, want a gamer cellphone, need it for work or want it to take lots of photographs, this phone is the right choice for you. When you buy the Z Flip you also get Protector, Charger and cable, USB-C headphones. , SIM ejector tool and OTG.
