Samsung Galaxy Z Flip – HANDS ON LOOK

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip – HANDS ON LOOK


So Samsung did a great job in keeping its
first foldable smartphone under wraps. We had absolutely zero ideas of what the Galaxy
Fold looked like before the official unveiling. The same, though cannot be said for their
second foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z flip. We already saw the live images of the handset
a few months ago and now we are getting a hands-on video of the handset nearly 9 days
before the official unpacked event. As you can see unlike the Galaxy Fold, this
has a clamshell-like form factor that folds vertically. There was a lot of excitement as to just how
Samsung has achieved this unique form factor and this video pretty much explains everything. When opened the phone appears to have a really
long 22:9 aspect ratio which is even bigger than the Xperia 1 which has a 21:9 aspect
ratio. There’s a small AMOLED display outside that
showcases the time and other key device information. The device actually makes a pretty satisfying
snap when you close it. Here it is… The fact that it makes a very satisfying snap
means that the hinge has likely been very well engineered. Speaking of which unlike the Galaxy Fold,
the Z flip doesn’t have a gap in the middle when you close it. The moto Razr also shuts completely when you
fold it but Motorola is using a different approach that looks great on paper but in
reality, it’s actually inviting trouble. It’s the same engineering flaw the first review
units of the Galaxy Fold had that made it malfunction. You see on the Moto Razr, the display is not
completely attached to the phone which is necessary for the Razr’s hinge mechanism but
this would also mean that dirt and debris will get into pretty easily just like it got
into the earlier review units of the Galaxy Fold. That’s an engineering flaw, Samsung fixed
it though..there’s no gap in the new redesigned Galaxy Folds but the same cannot be said for
the Razr. Motorola isn’t doing anything about this…In
fact, they are saying bumps and lumps are expected on this handset. So if you’re planning to get the Razr I would
advise you to wait and see if the device starts to malfunction because of it. Thankfully, though Samsung isn’t using the
same approach. They’ve learned their lesson with the earlier
units of the Galaxy Fold so there won’t be a gap on the Z flip. The display should be attached to the device. And it’s surprising to see the Z flip folds
completely without any gap in the middle, I guess we’ll have to wait for the unpacked
event to see how they managed to do that. Also, unlike any other foldables out there,
the Galaxy Z flip has ultra-thin glass display which will make this handset more durable
and you’ll feel more confident in trying out this device. The main target audience for this handset
is girls according to Samsung because they have short pockets and this is a perfect companion
for their clothes which barely has space to keep anything. That doesn’t mean you can’t buy this, this
looks good, to be honest, and if you are into flip phones then this will be a perfect handset,
provided you are willing to spend 1500 bucks for it. let me know your thoughts on this down in
the comments and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!
