Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 Overview


What's it like to Use?


Regarding the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5, users can expect subtle yet significant improvements that solidify its position as the go-to choice in its relatively uncompetitive market niche. Notably, the cover screen has been significantly improved, making the device much more practical, and the hinge mechanism has been revamped to allow for a flat fold, eliminating the annoying edge formation.


In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 now boasts a new chipset, 256GB of base storage, and minor adjustments to the camera and internal display's brightness. While the phone's size hasn't changed much, the outer screen has been expanded to offer users much more utility than its predecessor. It's worth mentioning, however, that the display's crease (a common issue with foldable smartphones) is still noticeable, although users tend to grow accustomed to it over time.


Balancing familiarity and innovation, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is an excellent choice for those who want a refined and advanced foldable smartphone experience. This is especially true in a market that has limited alternatives.


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 boasts a 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED primary screen with a 2640 x 1080 pixels resolution. The primary screen has an adaptive refresh rate that can shift smoothly from 1Hz to 120Hz, making it more power-efficient.


The screen is protected by ultra-thin glass (UTG) and delivers stunning visuals with vibrant colours, high contrast, and outstanding viewing angles. Moreover, it has an impressive peak brightness of 1750 nits, enhancing its outdoor visibility.


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5's interface includes various display features such as dark mode, adjustable brightness, colour profiles, and support for an ever-present display. Overall, the primary screen offers an impressive visual experience with better readability outdoors, making it a crucial aspect of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5's design.

 
 

How does it Perform?


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 maintains the same aesthetic design as its predecessors, particularly the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. It features a polished Armor Aluminum frame that matches the device's colour, with precise, sleek corners and a flat back.


The most notable change in design is the placement of the dual circular camera lenses, which are now arranged horizontally in the upper-left corner instead of vertically. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has a glossy black due to the expanded cover display, creating a subtle colour palette with less intensity.


The Mint colour option is available, but more vibrant choices like blue, green, grey, and yellow are only offered on Samsung.com. A thinner profile has improved the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 design thanks to the updated water-drop hinge. This allows the phone to close completely flat, resulting in a 2mm reduction in thickness compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. The hinge maintains the sturdy Flex Hinge feel and allows for Flex Mode, which optimises the user interface placement.


Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is still resistant to water with an IPX8 rating, and it features Gorilla Glass Victus 2 for durability. However, the phone now has a reflective glass finish instead of a textured one, which makes it more susceptible to minor scratches. Despite the lack of official dust protection certification, independent tests have shown that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 can withstand over 400,000 folds.


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 comes in a small black box featuring a miniature version of the handset in the same colour as the actual device.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5's camera hardware remains unchanged, but the new cover display improves the phone's picture-taking capabilities. The interface includes several toggles, the most significant being the shutter actuation. You have the option to tap anywhere or use an onscreen button that you can move around. Opting for the latter allows you to use the double-tap gesture for other functions.


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has advantages, although it no longer allows for switching between cameras as the previous version did. Nevertheless, you can still switch between cameras by using pinch to zoom, and a double-tap will take you from ultrawide to 1x.

VERDICT


Should I buy the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5?


The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is considered by many to be the best foldable Android smartphone available. It offers a unique and attractive experience, with exceptional screen and camera quality. It boasts a new, improved Flex Window, exceptional build quality, and reliable rear cameras. As Samsung's thinnest and most refined foldable phone to date, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is worth considering.


This phone is a top performer, equipped with a 3.4-inch asymmetrical cover display, a revamped gapless hinge, and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset. With its many features, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 includes the Flex Window, an impressive build quality and camera capabilities.


It may not be as sturdy as a traditional smartphone nor ideal for those prioritising long battery life, versatile photography, or extensive external screen features. It's important to carefully consider your preferences before making a purchase. Remember that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is a distinctive and user-friendly phone that values aesthetics, innovation, and Samsung's top-notch display and camera. It's especially worth considering during promotions or price drops.


The OPPO Find N2 Flip boasts a sleek, robust design that rivals the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5. Its 6.8-inch screen is bigger than the Xiaomi 13 Pro's non-foldable 6.73-inch display. In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has a primary Full HD+ AMOLED screen measuring 6.7 inches and is the lightest of all three comparable smartphones, weighing 187 g.


The most exciting feature Xiaomi has introduced on the Xiaomi 13 Pro is the impressive camera system, co-engineered with Leica. Benefitting from wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses, the design of the camera app is faster and easier to use. Also, a 1-inch ultra-large sensor provides a massive light-sensitive area, more powerful light absorption and better imaging resolution.


Often, foldable smartphones suffer from insufficient camera functionality and quality. However, this is not the case with OPPO Find N2 Flip. Powered by Sony's IMX890 sensor (as used in the OnePlus 11), the OPPO's MariSilican X imaging NPU assists with image processing. Although lacking in optical image stabilisation, OPPO's camera technology is impressive. The hinge mechanism can support the phone at any angle between 45 and 110 degrees, enabling interesting camera usage, including tripod mode, waist-level shooting and 'camcorder' mode.
