2 days with Galaxy Z Flip. Flip or Flop?

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone on February 11. Of course, it won't be bought by many people simply because it costs too much. According to statistics, the most popular phone in 2019 was iPhone XR, it is priced at $ 600 and is a flagship solution for many. In simple words, the majority simply do not need all these mechanisms and features. People need a good phone, and the XR is up to the task.

Top Selling Samsung Phones

It is also surprising that in 2019 not a single Samsung flagship made it to the top-selling devices. People are probably not willing to pay more than $ 800 for this brand, which is why the Z Flip, which costs about $ 1,300, is unlikely to sell well. But our colleagues from phonearena decided to use the phone for a while and made up their own impressions of it. In this article, we will consider the most interesting points and try to come to a common position.

It is clear that Z Flip is rather a status device, and it is useful, first of all, for the Koreans themselves in terms of image. It's nice to have such a device in the lineup. It’s even more pleasant to know when you are part of a small number of companies that can produce similar products. But we are still interested in how good it turned out.

Our colleagues note that although the device looks futuristic, it has a number of design problems. For example, when folded, there is a small gap between two parts of the phone, which gets dirt and scratches the phone screen. In addition, when opened, the device feels too massive and long, it is difficult to use it.

Also, the dimple in the middle at the place of the fold has not gone anywhere. It is especially noticeable in daylight and can be very annoying for users. Another important point is the plastic screen protector, which can be easily scratched even with a fingernail. Our colleagues from phonearena got a few deep scratches after careful use:

Rnie notes the not very good sensitivity of the touch sensor. Even obvious screen taps may not be recognized by the phone.

Galaxy Z Flip – the smartphone of the future?

Although he seems like that, in reality he is not. Together with one cool trick, you will get a lot of new problems that will block all the advantages of the phone.

Of course, you can say that I am not the target audience for the Galaxy Z Flip, and that's true. But then who is the Galaxy Z Flip made for? And is this phone really the device of the future that Samsung thinks it is, or is it a nice toy for rich people?

So who is the Galaxy Z Flip for?

I still tend to think that this is a phone for rich people who want to try something different. The Z Flip cannot be called a real revolutionary product because it did not bring something supernatural. Yes, we are dealing with a folding screen, but so far it all looks like a kind of decoration for real revolutionary solutions. And there is no particular benefit from a folding phone today, because the body itself is too thick. The Z Flip is over 17 millimeters wide when folded. What kind of revolution are we talking about in this case? Without graphene batteries, which will significantly reduce the thickness of the case, it is too early to talk about foldable phones.

Buy Galaxy Z Flip

The device can be purchased in Russia on the company's official website for 120 thousand rubles. The amount is rather big, and, in truth, it is unlikely that an ordinary consumer will spend that kind of money on a smartphone, even if you consider its ability to add up.
