What Makes a Foldable Mobile Go From Tech Media News to Your Pocket? The answer lies in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, and in how Samsung has managed to adapt and create a capable, effective and useful device for users. It is no longer science fiction. Its screens bend without breaking and are as useful, if not more, than a typical smartphone. But why? Here I tell you what are the features that make these foldable Samsung phones unique.
Strength and durability
Samsung has taken note generation after generation of what it should improve in its Galaxy Z family, and with this third edition it has finally hit the nail on the head. We refer to the resistance of the terminals, which no longer only applies to the folding screen, which now has a layer of protection on the thin glass that makes it 80% more durable than the previous generation, we also refer to the waterproof. And it is that both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G now have IPX8 certification, which means being able to submerge them in water for up to half an hour at a depth of less than a meter and that they do not suffer any damage. Something that will free us from scares in everyday situations such as dropping them in the sink, getting wet from the rain or spilling some liquid on them like morning coffee.
And all this without forgetting the improvements in the reinforced aluminum that they have used for their different chassis, which gives them greater resistance compared to the second generation Flip and Fold models. In addition, Samsung has once again relied on Corning to protect the screens of these devices. That’s why they include crystal Gorilla Glass Victus, which is capable of withstanding drops of up to 2 meters without breaking.
In other words, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G they are already as resistant and durable as a high-end mobile to use. Something that other folding screen manufacturers have to prove.
Flexible and highly intelligent design
Being able to fold the screen is a technological boast of Samsung. But it is not only useful to carry everything we need while occupying less in the pocket, it is also interesting how all this progress can change and improve the day-to-day of users. For this reason, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G has a format that folds over itself and occupies half that of a normal mobile when folded, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is a tablet folded in half to also use it as a mobile. All this, in addition, reducing millimeters and grams compared to its previous versions.
However, the experience of having developed this family over three generations has allowed Samsung to go one step further. It demonstrates this with a larger 1.9-inch AMOLED exterior screen, which allows access to notifications and settings of the mobile without having to open it in the case of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. Something that will save us time and actions, being able know details of the terminal such as reading messages, changing music and more at a glance and without displaying it. Not to mention the new customization options included in this larger panel than in the previous edition and that give this shell-type mobile even more style.
Something similar happens with the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, but in this case focused on productivity. Here not only do we find a mobile that transforms into a tablet when deployed, but the software has also been improved to take advantage of this 7.6-inch screen, AMOLED, and that also moves at 120 Hz. Additions that allow real multitasking such as for example work with a couple of Word documents open at the same time, or use up to 3 applications at the same time in a design or placement that we want to take advantage of everything at once. Elements that give a new dimension to this mobile-tablet, and that push a little beyond the limits of what a terminal is capable of doing.
All this without forgetting the Samsung hinge system, and what they call Flex mode. And the hinge supports any position, so we can use the body of the mobile itself, both the Z Flip3 and the Z Fold3, as a tripod. This way you can not only use the main cameras to take selfie photos remotely and without a tripod, but there are also apps that take advantage of all this. The camera, to see the captures made while still showing you the frame. Or YouTube, which plays the video in the upper half and leaves the related videos part in the lower half.
In addition, in the case of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, you can switch from the outer to the inner screen with any application to enjoy it in a larger size. Even when not supported, thanks to the latest software advancements, These apps automatically move from the outside screen to the inside just by unfolding the terminal.
A set of tools that give more value and utility to these foldable Samsung phones, enhancing user options.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
Nor will you find in the portfolios of other manufacturers a folding mobile with the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. This shell-type mobile has evolved towards the lifestyle market. It shows in its glossy finishes and the dual-tone look given by the exterior screen itself. It is a mobile that is beautiful to the eye and to the touch, and it comes in four colors: cream, black, green and lavender (plus three other exclusive colors on Samsung.com). Although if you want to give it even more personality, Samsung has developed all kinds of the most stylish covers: with straps to hold it in the hand, with different finishes and colors, and even with textures.
S Pen compatibility on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
For its part, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G can boast an exclusive function: support or compatibility with the S Pen. Of course, a special one in this case. With the you can do the same as in the latest Samsung Galaxy Note: take notes, draw, transcribe what you write by hand, take notes synchronized with audios, etc. More possibilities that give yet another boost to the productivity of this folding mobile.
More affordable prices
But if there is something that has helped the success of these Samsung folding mobiles, in addition to the power and technological advances, is its price. The new Samsung Galaxy Z arrive with a substantial reduction compared to the price of previous versions. They are mature and commercial mobiles, and Samsung wants to make them accessible to users. That’s why you can get him Samsung Galxy Z Flip3 5G from 1,059 euros, and the powerful Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G from 1,809 euros. Prices that are not only lowered compared to previous models, but also democratize folding mobiles so that more users can enjoy them.
