Short description Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a good camera that has 3 modules (12 MP Wide, 12 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. The body of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G has received a non-standard form factor: folder (flip phone) with a flexible touch screen. This type of case began to be popular in 2019-2020, this became possible primarily due to the technologies, and, of course, marketers had to justify the inflated expectations of customers for new products. And Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G has such features: additional small screen with a diagonal 6.23" Super AMOLED, folding screen (so that the phone body can be folded), cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

In August 2020 was announced smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. It is located in the series Samsung Galaxy Z among many others smartphones Samsung.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G works on Android 10, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2020. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Unfortunately Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G does not support working with two SIM cards, we advise you to look at android smartphones with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.

Screen, body and battery

Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:

  • The diagonal of the main screen in the open position can be doubled, because the screen is flexible (see the catalog for all smartphones with flexible screens);
  • The smartphone has an additional 6.23-inch Super AMOLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
  • Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
  • The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
  • The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
  • And, of course, the high price of this model, because the cost of manufacturing technology for smartphones with flexible screens is still very high.;
  • But, the undoubted plus of such a flip smartphone is the uniqueness and interest of the friends, colleagues and partners around you, perhaps even some special status.

We advise you to immediately watch the video reviews and photos from real life of this smartphone. All promotional materials from the manufacturer will only show the pros of this flip smartphone. But with its high price, you need to find out both the pros and cons of this model before buying. Now let’s move on to describing other important characteristics in more detail.

Dynamic AMOLED 2X edge to edge flexible touchscreen with a diagonal 7.6″ and refresh rate 120 Hz mounted on the front panel Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, thickness 16.8 mm.

The battery in Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is installed on 4 500 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is a very good indicator, of course there are models with even more volume, but they will probably be more expensive.

In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added very small hole at the top of the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 10 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very weak cameras at the moment. If you have a little more money, then we suggest adding and buying one of the camera phones, which we sorted separately in our catalog. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 865+. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 12 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications only on the built-in smartphone memory, because the support for memory cards is not implemented here. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 256/512 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in September 2020 at a price of $3000. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
