Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G Review

Score: 10.99/10

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G is a very complete device launched last year, which counts with a really big 6.7 inches screen, a very powerful 3.1 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 12 megapixels back-facing camera and a 10 mega-pixels front camera.

The Z Flip 5G is for sale in three colors, mystic bronze, mystic gray and mystic white. Regarding its construction quality, the Z Flip 5G is majorly created with Aluminum . This cellphone is a very compact phone, considering it features a 6.7 inches display and it has just 6.59" long. This phone is just 0.28 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest cellphone's category. Samsung did a very good job making this phone weight just 6.46 oz.

Samsung decided to sell this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SM8250-AB chip, packing a high performance 3100 megahertz Octa-Core processor and a big 8 GB RAM. This cellphone has a 256 GB awesome internal storage and while it doesn't come with an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps without worrying about how much storage is left.

This phone has two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 10 MP front camera. this phone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of F1.8 so it can shoot very nice photos even in low lighting conditions. This phone can also shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 960 frames per second (32 times slower than normal videos). This camera also includes auto-focus and time lapse video.

This device is equipped with a high-tech 1080 x 2636 6.7" screen, making everything look perfect.

This phone features a 3300 mAh massive Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, which is quite poor for a consuming device like this. A big issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins losing capacity, having to buy a new phone to "solve it".

This cellphone has wi-fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra fast connectivity, 4G (LTE-A) , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a slower 4G type) and fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device supports dual SIM cards so it can to use 2 different carriers or phone lines.

This cellphone also includes a wide range of interesting features as Fingerprint Sensor, Face unlock, Wireless charging compatibility, NFC, Bluetooth (provides communication with other phones and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is not a good choice considering it is priced 1450 dollars, while many similar devices are offerred way cheaper than that. This cellphone is probably very appropiate for you if you need a cellphone for work, you love taking photographs, want a device for playing games or will use this cellphone mainly for social networks.
