The Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung's contemporary attempt at a clamshell-style foldable phone. The phone starts at just under US$1400, and has now made the trip over to DxOMark where it posted scores akin to two-year-old flagship phones from the competition.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip alongside the Galaxy S20 series a few months ago as its second attempt at a foldable-type phone. The phone has now made the trip over to DxOMark, where it put up some less than satisfactory numbers.

The Galaxy Z Flip recorded an overall score of 105. That's in the same ballpark as phones like the Huawei P20 Pro, iPhone XS Max, and HTC U12+, all three of which were released back in 2018. That similarity continues in the photo and video scores, with the Galaxy Z Flip making away with scores of 109 and 96 respectively. 

It's interesting that the Galaxy Z Flip performs so unimpressively, as it supposedly uses similar camera hardware to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones. The main sensor, at least, is also a 1/2.55" type, although the ultra-wide-angle sensor is lower-res than the S10's and a telephoto shooter is missing entirely. Yet, Galaxy S10 manages to score noticeably higher in both the overall and photo sections (113/120).

While it can be argued that the Galaxy Z Flip isn't a camera-centric phone, it is after all a US$1400 device that's designed to be a daily-driveable smartphone with an innovative form factor. That said, DxOMark's scores are hardly gospel, and there's been no widespread complaints over the camera capabilities of the Galaxy Z Flip.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
