Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is folding smartphone innovation at its best

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a beautiful smartphone concept that combines the old flip format of yesteryears with modern foldable display technology of today, to produce one of the best (if not the best) portable smartphones around today.

At first sight, the phone looks small because, of course, it is in its folded form. When it is opened up, it is actually much bigger than most smartphones. That pretty sick if you ask me, as I love large sized phones. It has absolutely fantastic and impressive features and processors, as is expected of a brand with the technical prowess of Samsung.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has very impressive processors. You dont need to bother yourself about lag or things related to the system mot running smoothly.

I would definitely  recommend the Z flip for gaming. I mean, by looking at those processors alone, you don’t  even need to be told. Beautiful graphics with smooth running gameplay.

Like previously mentioned, it is quite a large phone when unfolded and doesnt feel that heavy. Its definitely not a sleek, thin type phone but i think its much cooler that way and has a firm grip in one’s hands.

Seeing as the Galaxy Z Flip is a flagship phone and was released on the 14th of February, 2020, the OS does not come as a surprise. At that time, Android 10 was the latest OS installment, with Android 11 in the works, and later released in September of the same year. But don’t  worry yourself too much, you can simply upgrade to the latest OS.

Samsung Galaxy Z flip has a considerable amount of battery power. Battery guaranteed to last you for hours and probably almost a day, of course, totally depending on how it is used and what it is used for. It also has wireless charging which is nice addition.

The Z flip has large storage digits. Of course, anything less than those figures and the phone would have been a big letdown. I feel the 8GB/256GB space is a perfect fit. Even for a flagship, giving this 12GB and 512GB would have veen a little too much.

You have more than enough space for to do as you please. Then again, there are some people who would use up the entire thing.

Now when we talk Samsung, you know that camera quality will always be a vital feature. The Z Flip’s camera quality is actually really good, taking the fact that the phone has so much going on about it. You can be sure to take those beautiful pictures as well as capture clear and focuse video feed.

As far as network support, the Galaxy  Flip supports all of the four big networks and 4G Internet from MTN, Airtel, Glo, and 9mobile all work with it. You should also be able to use Smile and Spectranet SIM cards in it, as their network frequencies are supported.
