While it’s too early to discuss the hinge durability, it’s right to mention that it functions very seamlessly. Opening the fold will need your attention for a few time until you get accustomed a natural way of unfolding it.
Opening and shutting the top felt very smooth, but what’s even more interesting is that it can hold itself at a variety of angles around 90-degrees to enable different functions. We were quite convinced with the straightforward of doing video calls by keeping your Z Flip on a surface like your laptop.
The design of the Galaxy Z Flip makes it infinitely easier to carry and pocket than regular smartphones. The candy bar-style of the Galaxy Z Flip, when unfolded, makes it distinct from the mini-tablet-like Galaxy Fold. it’s a 6.7-inch Full HD+ screen and 21.9:9 ratio , which feels exceptionally tall in hand.
The only downside of that tall form factor is that folks with small hands might struggle a touch to work it with one hand. Especially for things like pulling the notification and quick settings tab. It has more space to multitask due to two halves of the screen.
The front screen features a tiny 1.1-inch interactive AMOLED display next to the rear camera setup. the cover Display doesn’t offer tons of room. Still, it packs in the essentials when it involves notifications and quick information, like call information, time, and battery percentage.
It just has enough space to suit a small text, so you get a scrolling notification at the most times. you’ll scroll through the varied sets of data on the display, plus there is a way to tap a notification on the cover Display then open up the phone to see the app fully .
Like the main display, it also can be double tapped to wake. Double tapping on the facility key turns up the camera to permit you to require selfies using the cover display.
For imaging, there are only two lenses on the rear. there is a 12MP F2.2 Ultra-Wide camera that works with a 12MP F1.8 wide-angle shooter. The front camera resides in a very small cutout on display. once you have the phone unfolded, a 10MP front-facing shooter takes up the selfie and video calling duty. We could only use it for a couple of minutes in an artificially lit cafe, and therefore the results didn’t shock or surprise us.
Its main camera includes features like LED Flash, HDR, panorma.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is priced at a very high price of Rs 154,990.
Should you BUY it ?
Samsung’s latest is a head turner and you should consider to buy it if you love to flaunt. It can offer excellent performance with its current processor. But the fact that its very expensive cannot be ignored. It also does not offer the best Android. There are better Android phones but remember they do not flip. If you have made your mind to buy a flip phone you should go for it!!!
