    It's Flossy Carter's turn to take a look at revamped classic.

    RIP Razr









    The smoothest YT dude out there Mr Mobile
    Reviews Samsungs take on the classic flip phone form factor.












    Days before the official launch we have the usual hands on leak and wow Samsung have done it again with another jaw dropping device.
    Enter the Z Flip part two of the evolution of mobile phones.


    The Galaxy Z Flip will launch with a 6.7-inch FHD+ flexible screen and a 1.06-inch secondary display. There will be a Snapdragon 855+ processor inside the device along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. The dual rear cameras are a 13MP f/1.8 primary sensor and a 12MP f/2.2 123° ultrawide-angle camera. The selfie camera is a 10MP f/2.4 sensor.

    The phone has a 3300mAh battery that is split into two (900mAh + 2400mAh) and supports 15W wired charging and also supports wireless and reverse wireless charging. Samsung will ship it with Android 10 with One UI 2 on top.

    It's an interesting device and it will be interesting to see if this form factor catches on or not.

    Well the Fold cleared a million, so expect this to sell a few more.
    If they put these on contract they will be a massive hit and the no.1 sales commission payer. :cool:

    And I'll add:
    I expect the market will decide if easy to pocket flip phones become more popular compared to the book style folding phones. In either case Samsung have both options covered.

    Both styles will be successful, with the book having greater flexibility and productivity possibilities.

    This design makes the Motorola look dated... Do you know how many folds it's rated at?

    I've not seen any info on that, but I'm very interested in seeing this flexible glass tech close up and how things play out.
    I read that an element within the glass is suppose to be detrimental to electronic components, so one can only assume this problem has been resolved.

    Only a few hours to go now before the show and the fanboy wars start again.:D

    Nop.
    Dowoo Insys was the firm reported as producing the panels, Samsung now own the controlling steak in the company with patents filed.

    The Motorola RAZR maybe dated looking but it stood a lot of punishment before it failed. I'm more interested in real world testing than what a phone is rated for in lab conditions.

    Hopefully the Galaxy Z Flip will be just as tough but we will have to wait and see. Maybe Samsung has learned from it's past failures and hopefully they have properly tested the phone before releasing it to the market.

    Interesting tech...

    But somehow looking so wrong...

    Almost everyone screaming for AOD and flip-on display is the answer...?

    Sometimes it's not about being right or wrong. They're just trying to get a message across by being very unique and it's working very well!

    I agree, for people that check their phone often the phone could fail before it's time to upgrade. Time will tell how durable they are, let the early adopters test flip phones in the real world.

    AOD is donkeys years old for most, anyone up for this won't be thinking about AOD.
    Besides one would have thought with two batteries, the smaller screen would have an AOD option as the feature already exists within the OS.

    If someone uses 150 folds per day, they need ZEN MODE. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:
