Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review

Score: 11.23/10

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is an absolutely amazing Android cellphone launched in September, with a huge 7.6 inches screen, a high speed 3.1 GHz Octa-Core CPU, a 12 MP back facing camera and a 10 megapixels front-facing camera.

Samsung decided to power this device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SM8250-AB system chip, backed up by a great 3.1 GHz Octa-Core CPU with a large 12 GB RAM. This cellphone comes with a large 256 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't count with an external memory card slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps without even thinking about running out of space at all.

Samsung did a very nice design job making this device weight only 9.95 ounces. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is very thin and good-looking, being just 0.27 inches thick. This phone just has 6.27" long and 5.05" wide, but it is still able to fit a a 7.6 inches display. Samsung is offering the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 in two different color options, mystic black and mystic bronze. About its construction quality, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is manufactured with Glass and Aluminum .

This cellphone is equipped with an amazing 7.6 inches display with a 1768 x 2208 resolution, which makes everything look amazing.

This cellphone offers WiFi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 5G insanely fast data connection, LTE-A (4G) super fast connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone has dual sim cards to be able to to work with 2 different carriers or phone lines.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has two cameras, a 12 MP back side camera and a 10 megapixels front side camera. this phone's back side camera has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can shoot excellent pictures even in low-light environments. It can also film 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 960 frames per second. In addition, the camera has auto-focus.

This phone also features a great numbre of interesting characteristics such as Fingerprint Scanner, Face unlock, Wireless charging system, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone has a 4500 mAh big non-removable battery, which isn't very promising for a phone like this. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't change it when it starts to lose its charge, while with this big battery you will probably replace this phone before it becomes a real problem.

This cellphone is really expensive considering it is offerred for 2000 dollars, and many similar phones are offerred way cheaper than that. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a gaming cellphone, will use it as a work device, you love taking pictures or need a phone to mainly use social networks, you will probably love this cellphone. Samsung sells this phone with Travel Adapter, Data Cable and Ejection Pin .
