The release of the latest Samsung Galaxy model, the Z Flip3 5G has caused quite a commotion this month. In a good way, of course. It’s been a year and seven months since its predecessor was introduced and the highly-anticipated release promised superior upgrades and more importantly, enhanced durability. Since the device reveal mid-August, it seemed like everyone, particularly the youth, wanted their hands on it and the pre-orders went like hotcakes. It’s not hard to see why, though. Let us explain.
Smartphone designs have become sort of boring of late, especially to the younger crowd. Almost every other mobile tech company has continuously released a slim, large, rectangular device with a fairly similar design interface. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G changes the game with the unique ability to fold in half, measuring 4.2 inches when folded, allowing even more ease of mobility and pocketability. Available in seven stylish colours – Cream, Phantom Black, Green, Lavender, and Gray, White or Pink (found exclusively online) – each one will help you express your style personality effortlessly.
Speaking of folding the device in half, if you’ve yet to try it, it’s a brilliant, satisfying, yet mind-boggling sensation. Once you’ve done it, you’ll probably find it hard to stop. If you’re wondering how exactly is the glass surface able to bend 90 degrees flat, that’s because Samsung uses Ultra-Thin Glass that, while bendable, is extremely resilient. However, according to the tech giant, you are guaranteed at least 200,00 times of folding and unfolding, so be mindful that there is a limit if you’re planning to use the phone for a very long time. The exterior is made with Samsung’s strongest aluminium frame yet, which protects the hinge and makes it extremely sturdy.
The beauty of having a folding phone is the flexibility of setting it down without needing a tripod when you’re on a video call or taking front-facing selfies. Samsung calls this the Flex Mode where you’re able to enjoy the features of the phone hands-free. The Cover Screen is also one of its best points – measuring 1.9-inch, you’re able to check messages, play music, and even take selfies without having to flip it open. Very convenient!
Based on our first impressions of using the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, the display is very vibrant and enjoyable thanks to its Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen technology. Scrolling, from the bottom half of the phone to the top, is seamless too, despite there being a slight curve in the middle of the phone where you bend it. Fret not as the curve is barely noticeable, especially when the bright display is on.
There are plenty more features to be explored so stay tuned for our next review on this phone. In the meantime, check out how sleek the device is in this video below:
