When you think about foldable phones, you might think back to when we had to fold phones to end phone calls or just end whatever we were doing.
Well, Samsung has found two neat reasons why a foldable phone is still a good feature.
The first reason is that it’s a way to bring back the old method of phone use in a modern way and the second reason is that a foldable phone can give you a better screen experience (from small to large displays).
Okay, the reasons above are my opinions but I think Samsung may have thought of those things.
Anyway, here are some foldable Samsung phones you can get today.
Recommended Device: Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
If you’re not looking for a device with a huge screen, then the Z Flip3 5G is the best foldable Samsung phone you should go for.
This device comes with just about everything you need in a device.
You’ve got 5G for fast internet speeds, an AMOLED display, water resistance, a fast chipset, and a whole lot more.
When the phone is folded, you get a screen that you can use to view notifications, control music, and other customizable functions.
When it’s opened, you get a 6.7 inch AMOLED screen with a high refresh rate of 120Hz. Resolution is 1080 x 2640 pixels which will make images sharp on the device.
The device also comes with Android 11, which means it’s going to be compatible with apps and games on the play store. You should also know that you can upgrade it to Android 12.
The chipset on the Z Filp3 5G is the Snapdragon 888. It comes with a 2.84GHz octa-core CPU making the device fast and lag-free. And RAM size is 8GB which means you can have many apps running in the background.
You get two storage options with the device, 128GB and 256GB. If you’re going to be keeping a lot of files on the device, I’ll suggest you get the 256GB version.
Unfortunately, the device doesn’t support SD cards. Neither do you get a headphone jack.
However, you do get other features like USB Type-C, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, GPS, NFC, etc.
The only problem I see with this device is the battery, it’s 3300mAh. A little lower than the 4000mAh I usually recommend.
But the device supports fast charging, as well as wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
If you’re looking to get a large display on a foldable phone, the Fold3 5G is the device you should go for. You can use this device as a normal device as well as almost as a tablet.
This device is water resistant and also supports 5G for fast internet speeds.
So, when the device is folded, you’re going to be working with the 6.2-inch screen. It is an AMOLED screen and it has a 120Hz refresh rate.
But when the screen is unfolded, you’ll be working with the 7.6-inch screen. It is also an AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, making the display smooth.
The resolution on the large display is 1768 x 2208 pixels, ensuring images are sharp and detailed.
Android 11 is what you’ll get on this device but it can be upgraded to Android 12, besides making the device compatible with apps and games, it also means you’ll be getting all the latest features Android provides.
The Snapdragon 888 is what you get here, a 2.84GHz octa-core CPU for speed as you use the device for all your intense activities like gaming, etc.
It’s also got 12GB of RAM so you can open as many apps as you want without the device slowing down.
Although this device doesn’t support SD cards, you get 256GB or 512GB of storage space. Depends on which you want.
Just like the Flip3 5G, there’s no headphone jack, but you have other features like a USB Type-C port, GPS, NFC, fingerprint scanner, etc.
Since this is a larger device compared to the Flip3 5G, the battery is a lot bigger at 4400mAh. It also supports fast charging as well as wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G
At first glance, this device looks almost like the Z Flip3 5G, however, the difference is in the screens and build.
Here you don’t get the water-resistance feature. And you get a slightly lower resolution compared to the Z Flip3 5G.
You’re getting a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, however, it doesn’t have a high refresh rate. As stated, the resolution is a bit lower at 1080 x 2636 pixels. Also, the cover display is 1.1 inches while the Flip3 is 1.9 inches.
You do have the option to upgrade this device to android 12, however if you want to stick to what it comes with, then you’ll be with Android 10.
Even though Android 10 is still compatible with a lot of apps and games, it’s recommended you upgrade it after getting the device.
Although you get an older version of a Snapdragon chipset, it’s been optimized to go as high as 3.09GHz.
It is the Snapdragon 865 5G, yes, this device supports the 5G network for fast internet speeds.
RAM size is 8GB, just ideal for multitasking.
You don’t get an SD card slot here, but storage space is 256GB. So it’s good enough to handle a lot of pictures, videos, apps, games, etc.
There’s no headphone jack, but you get a fingerprint scanner, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C, etc.
The battery size is the same as the Flip3 5G, 3300mAh. It also supports fast charging as well as wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
The only thing missing here is 5G support. So if you’re looking for a device that only has 4G, then this is the one for you.
Besides not having 5G, it’s also different from the Z Flip 5G by having a Snapdragon 855 chipset.
You don’t get water resistance either.
It comes with a 6.7 inch AMOLED screen. It doesn’t have a high refresh rate, and its resolution is 1080 x 2636 pixels.
You also get Android 10 here, but it can be upgraded to Android 12.
Its Snapdragon 855 chipset comes with a 2.95GHz octa-core CPU. You get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The device doesn’t have SD card support.
You also get a 3300mAh battery on this device. It supports wireless charging as well as fast charging.
You don’t get a headphone jack.
