Samsung is one of the few manufacturers with the resources, technology and vision to continue developing foldable phones. This year we saw the continuation of their long-term project and the result was the best smartphones Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. What have they improved on and does their arrival portend a bright future for foldable phones?
Samsung is one of a growing number of companies that are betting that it’s time to take a leap in mobile development. Where the competition failed, Samsung succeeded. They have produced not just one, but two foldable phones, which justifies all the media trends and also proves to be practical. Today’s smartphones are hard to recognize at first glance, especially from the front. The new Samsung Galaxy Z foldable phones don’t have these problems, the phones feature different forms of folding technology, but you wouldn’t trade any of them for any other phone. It is really unique.
Is her progress enough to convince even the biggest skeptics of foldable phones?
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G: A Marvel of Modern Engineering
Although the design of the new Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is similar to its predecessor, Samsung has made some changes or improvements in the design of this phone. First of all, it should be noted that in folded mode it is a very compact phone. It measures only 10.72 cm (4.2 in) and, thanks to its square shape, can be stowed in the smallest pocket or hidden corner of a backpack. Of course, Samsung did not make such an attractive phone to hide it in your pockets, but rather to attract the attention of passers-by with its unique appearance.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G was built for productivity and convenience. The first indication of this is the extended external screen (4,8 cm). Without unlocking the phone, you can check messages, take photos, play music, and much more. You can choose your favorite screen settings for easy access, then customize to your liking with different styles and colors. Galaxy Watch 4 users can customize the external display to match the look of the watch dial.
The phone pampers you in open position with a 17.03 cm (6.7 inch) 2x infinity flexible AMOLED display The dynamic screen supports up to 120Hz refresh. While you enjoy silky smooth browsing, scrolling and scrolling through menus and apps, the phone in the background automatically adjusts the speed according to your current usage. This ensures the best possible user experience while at the same time prolonging operational independence. You can split the home screen into two parts at any time and do multiple tasks simultaneously. While listening to your favorite YouTube podcasts, simultaneously post an amazing selfie or reply to a message from a friend. At the bottom of the screen hides another surprise, which is a stereo speaker and Dolby Atmos support. A great duo that will provide a great audio experience.
Much attention has been paid to endurance. The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G has an IPX8 water resistance rating, which means you don’t have to worry about splashes or drops destroying your precious phone. Theoretically, the phone can be submerged up to 1.5 meters under water for up to 30 minutes, but of course we do not recommend that. Thanks to a new coating and protective foil, the screen is now 80% more durable than before and can withstand up to 200,000 bends. Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™ covers the front and back of the external display, and the phone’s frame is made of the strongest Armor aluminum, ensuring the durability of the foldable hinge and increasing the phone’s resistance to scratches and damage.
Camera mode and handsfree
On the external display, you’ll notice two 12MP ultra-wide angle apertures and a 12MP wide angle camera, which will take care of taking professional photos. In the open position, there is a 10MP front camera for taking selfies in a classic position. Another useful feature, in addition to the ability to browse through notifications, is the ability to take selfies with the dual camera on the revamped external display. It also allows you to double preview the captured images. This way, you can decide instantly whether you want to keep the photo or take a new one.
For added convenience in portraiture and photography, you can put the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G in the foldable position, which acts as a stabilizer or tripod. All you have to do is choose the desired angle for recording, and everything else is taken care of by the phone’s smart algorithms, including automatic framing. In this mode, you can also use your phone for hands-free calling and video conferencing. Place the foldable phone on a flat surface, launch the chat app, and you’re ready to go.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G: The best foldable phone?
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G is designed to impress foldable phone skeptics. Do you doubt his stamina? The screen is up to 80% more durable, and the entire phone is waterproof (IPX8). The frame is made of very strong, but at the same time a light brushed aluminum frame. It’s Samsung’s strongest aluminum frame to date. The external protection screen and the back of the phone withstand even the toughest shocks, as the phone is equipped with Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™. It can withstand drops from 2 meters and has a scratch resistance that is 4 times better than competitive aluminosilicates.
Not sure about multitasking? In addition to a huge screen reminiscent of a tablet, there is also support for the S Pen, a detachable screen for smarter work and an under-display camera, which increases the workspace and improves the user experience.
It’s the thinnest Galaxy Fold yet. Due to its unique foldable position (it opens like a book), it’s slightly thicker than its sibling Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, but you can still fit it in your pocket easily. In folded mode, the phone looks like a classic phone but is a 15.8 cm (6.2 in) first-class that allows for one-handed use. In open mode, you have a huge 19.3 cm (7.6 inch) tablet screen that unlocks new possibilities for creating, browsing, and playing games. The cinema, workstation, game center and the possibilities of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G foldable phone are endless. Whatever you imagine, you can do.
When you turn on the flexible AMOLED 2x infinity display, the front camera miraculously disappears under the screen. Say goodbye to annoying notch on the screen and hello to truly infinity screen. The viewing experience is enriched not only by the dynamic AMOLED display, but also by the high refresh rate of 120Hz (on the main and protective screen), stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos support.
Similar to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, you can split the screen into two parts and do multiple tasks simultaneously. You can answer the call on the top half while you jot down your thoughts on the bottom half (using the S Pen). The foldable mode also allows you to watch content hands-free, make video calls, and more. The site now has a typical fingerprint reader, and there’s even an unlocked phone with face recognition.
The intelligent dual battery system provides all-day autonomy. Each half (2200 mAh, 4400 mAh total) of the lithium battery automatically adjusts its power, which greatly extends the life of the phone. You can charge the batteries with up to 25W fast charging or a fast wireless charger. Up to 512 GB of memory, 12 GB of system memory and the most powerful Snapdragon 888 processor are available. Thanks to this combination of RAM and processor, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is a pretty beast for gaming. Playing graphically intense games like PUBG, Call of Duty Mobile, etc. is a small snack on the ultra settings.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4: Very close to perfect
Too bulky, too slow, ugly, expensive: there are many features that can prevent the user from using a smartwatch. Thankfully, Samsung has avoided all design and hardware flaws with the new Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic smartwatches.

From disguising Wear OS and Samsung One UI to a 3-in-1 health sensor and a wide range of dials, whatever the version, you’ll get the same software experience. The Watch 4 Classic differs primarily in the choice of materials, and offers more elegant materials such as a stainless steel case, leather straps and a physically rotatable valve.
Although it’s a minimalist design that doesn’t follow modern principles, the Galaxy Watch 4 still exudes smarts and modernity. Sophisticated design ensures sophistication, and high-quality stainless steel materials express powerful and intuitive functionality. The RIdge athletic belt provides comfort. It’s made of fluoroplastic elastomer, which adds durability and sweat resistance to the waist, while ensuring a snug fit on each wrist and matching your active lifestyle.

You can browse a wide range of apps, from music streaming apps to an extensive library of health and fitness apps.

With the sensor, you can measure the EKG and blood pressure in real time.
