When we think about flip phones we automatically think of Samsung. Their Galaxy Z Flip has been a major success despite being a rather expensive device. The Samsung flip phone Singapore retailers and carriers offer is the Z Flip 2 and while the third generation will be available soon, you may still want to keep the current generation on your shortlist.
Why The Third Generation May Not Be Worth It
The second generation of Z Flip phones has been announced and should be already available in certain regions, including Singapore. Samsung is in the habit of dropping the price of a previous generation of smartphones when a new one releases. With the release of the Z Flip3, the Z Flip will drop in price. This means that it will be a bit cheaper but you have to make the compromise of getting a previous generation smartphone. If you are thinking of getting a Samsung flip phone in Singapore retailers should already have the 2nd gen of Z Flip phones for a lower price tag.
One concern that some may have is that they are getting old hardware. In reality, the Z Flip uses very capable hardware. It comes with the Snapdragon 888 5G chip, an Octa-core CPU, and the Adreno 660 GPU. There are still new flagship smartphones that are launched with this chip as it is very capable and will continue to perform for several years before starting to feel dated. Simply put, if you get the Z Flip, you can enjoy it for several years before feeling the need for an upgrade.
Design and Hardware
Compared to the Galaxy Fold, the Z Flip is a better-built product. Samsung learned from its mistakes and designed a better hinge that feels more reliable when flipping the device. It can be flipped with a single hand and when open, it feels like a regular smartphone. Due to its simple design and no front cover display, Samsung also used a simple camera setup. The Z Flip comes with the best cameras that Samsung offers. You do not have to take my word for it. If you want to test the Samsung flip phone Singapore retailers may have it on display in their showrooms thus you can see how the device looks and works in person.
As stated previously, the CPU and GPU combo in the Z Flip offers plenty of performance. To ensure that it is capable of dealing with resource-demanding apps, Samsung also added 8 GB of RAM. The only option that you have when choosing a Z Flip phone is if you want it with 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage. You also get to choose the color but that does not affect pricing.
The battery is adequate for such a powerful device. The display will drain the battery and the more you use the device, the fast it will burn through its battery. For regular usage, the battery should last for an entire day.
Lastly, the display is nothing short of impressive. Even if the resolution may not be all that mind-blowing, it has a high pixel density of 426 ppi. Brightness and saturation are adjustable but overall, everything looks great on the 6.7-inch display on the Galaxy Z Flip. If you want to upgrade to the Samsung flip phone, Singapore retailers should already have it in stock but you should be patient and wait for discounts when the new generation hits the shelves.
