The ultimate 2020 Review of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is one of the first models with a folding screen with a clamshell opening. Once closed it takes up very little space, while opened it has a 6.7″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels.
Its overall performance is very high (as is the price), but it is heavily penalized by its fragility (it did not pass the drop test) and by the low battery life.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip arrived on the market with Android 10, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.7″ foldable screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2636 pixels is of excellent quality and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the weaknesses of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the poor battery life: in our usage scenario, its 3300 mAh allow it to reach just 17 hours, which is below average.
The 221.3 GB of actual available internal memory (256 GB declared) are a lot, certainly enough to store our data.
One of the weaknesses is the fragility: in fact it has not passed the drop tests.
Models in this price range are usually very powerful and this phone is no exception: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection (but there is the version available with 5G connection too).
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has two rear cameras (the main is 12.2 Mp) which allow you to get just enough quality photos.
This mobile phone has a 10 Mp front camera, which allows you to take poor quality photos, so you can’t get good selfies.
- The version of the operating system is quite recent
- You can insert two SIMs at the same time.
- Battery life is short
- It is one of the most expensive models
- Its performances are below average
- At the same price there are much better models
