Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G in review: High-tech foldable smartphone

Works well. Samsung also provides the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, the slimmer folding phone, with the improved mechanism of the Z Fold3. But not only the folding technology has improved, the hardware is also state of the art. Our review reveals what the complete package can do.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

In our review of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, we had to criticize the mediocre feel of the display, the inferior call quality, and the lack of storage expansion. While the latter is still present in the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, our review will reveal whether the remaining points of criticism have been addressed.

Our review sample of the Samsung folding phone is equipped with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage, and it's available for approximately 1,050 Euros (~$1,232). This means that it has to face the similarly equipped competition that is priced at a similar level even in the absence of a foldable display.

Case - The Galaxy Z Flip3 is now water-resistant

Samsung uses metal for the frame of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. The exterior is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, and the display is once again covered with a protective film. In contrast to the predecessor, the folding phone is now protected against water ingress according to the IPX8 standard, but it's not dust-proof.

The hinge itself makes a very robust impression and allows the screen to be adjusted to almost any angle. The smartphone remains stable up to an angle of approximately 135°, and it only tilts backwards at even flatter angles. There is no latching mechanism for the display to be locked in place.

When opened, the Flip3 5G is the slimmest smartphone in our test field and also the lightest device with a weight of 138 grams (~4.9 oz). A maximum thickness of around 1.5 centimeters (~0.6 in) is reached when folded.

Connectivity - Folding Samsung phone without SD card reader

Alongside an up-to-date SoC, Samsung installs 8 GB of RAM in the Z Flip3 5G. The base version comes with 128 GB of internal storage. For an additional charge of approximately 50 Euros (~$59), a 256 GB capacity is also available.

A microSD card can't be inserted. Furthermore, only one nano SIM slot is available, but an additional eSIM can be set up as well. VoWLAN and VoLTE are supported too.

The USB-C port transfers data according to the 2.0 standard; the Camera2 API supports Level 3, and DRM Widevine L1 is also available.

Software - Several third-party apps

The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is running the Android 11 OS with Samsung's One UI 3.1 interface on top. The experience provided is a bit different from that of pure Android, but users will get used to it after a short familiarization period. The manufacturer uses many of its own applications like in the case of the gallery app, for example.

Furthermore, the appropriate applications for controlling Samsung's wearables and smart home products are already available. With the Galaxy Store, Samsung also offers its own app store. In addition, there are apps from Microsoft as well, but they can be uninstalled easily, just like all the previously mentioned applications.

Telephone and call quality - Clear connection

The Z Flip3 5G's phone app allows users to easily access a numeric keypad as well as to view saved contacts and recent calls. A high volume level is available during calls, and both parties can be understood well. Ambient noise suppression also works reliably.

Cameras - The Z Flip3 5G takes good photos

Front-facing camera sample
Front-facing camera sample

Samsung equips the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G with a 10 MP camera sensor for selfies. In contrast to the Fold3 5G, this isn't an under-display camera, but rather a punch-hole one. The image quality of portrait shots taken with it is very good. They show many details and good colors, but they exhibit a slight graininess when zoomed in. There are various color filters available for adjusting the image quality. The Pro mode is restricted to the main camera.

The Z Flip3's main camera is equipped with two 12 MP sensors. They both deliver very good pictures with a lot of details and vivid colors. While one sensor takes normal wide-angle and widescreen photos, the second sensor is fitted with an ultra wide-angle lens. There is no optical zoom, which means that only software can be used to zoom in on the subject. The resulting quality is correspondingly moderate, causing images to look blurry and with washed out details. The Flip3's camera can capture our test subject clearly in low-light conditions. Nevertheless, colors look too dark and details a bit blurry. The Pro mode can be used for manual adjustments, allowing customized settings for the ISO, shutter speed, lighting, focus, white balance, and contrast.

Videos are similar in quality to our sample photos. The available resolutions are UHD and Full HD at 30 or 60 fps, respectively, as well as HD at 30 fps. Just like with photos, there's also a professional mode with the same settings plus the option to choose the sound source. The latter can be switched between the phone's microphones, USB, and Bluetooth.

Accessories and warranty - No power adapter included

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G only comes with a USB-C cable and a SIM tool in the box. A compatible power adapter and other accessories can be purchased separately from the manufacturer.

Samsung grants buyers of the Z Flip3 5G a 24-month warranty period. The Care+ insurance package is included for free for a year.

Input devices and handling - Responsive despite the crease in the display

The main display of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G can be used like any conventional touchscreen, but it exhibits somewhat inferior gliding properties compared to a model with a fixed glass surface. Taps are reliably picked up at every point, even where the display creases. On the other hand, the small external display responds a bit sluggishly to touch.

Google's GBoard is available for text input, and it can be customized in a variety of ways. The external buttons for volume control and the power button with the integrated fingerprint sensor have a firm pressure point and are also triggered reliably. Unlocking the device with a stored fingerprint usually required several attempts in everyday testing. Face recognition works much better in this regard.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 is equipped with a 6.7-inch foldable AMOLED panel. In addition, there's a 1.9-inch Super AMOLED display on the outside. The inner display also supports adaptive refresh rates between 10 and 120 Hz. HDR10+ is supported as well.

According to our measurements, the main display achieves a maximum brightness of 430 cd/m² with the ambient light sensor disabled. A very good 1,127 cd/m² is achieved in the APL 50 test. The minimum brightness is 1.99 cd/m². With an average maximum brightness of 820 cd/m², the folding smartphone is able to lead our test field.

PWM is used for brightness control, operating at brightness levels below 2% at a frequency of 120Hz. Above that, the frequency range is between 235.8 and 242.7 Hz.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 242.7 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 242.7 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 242.7 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

As typical for AMOLEDs, the panel's color reproduction as well as its contrast ratio and black level are excellent. The display can also be customized using the "Vivid" and "Natural" color profiles.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
2.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.6 ms rise
↘ 1.2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.4 ms rise
↘ 4.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

Thanks to the high display brightness, the Z Flip3 5G can be used easily outdoors. Only very flat viewing angles can lead to annoying reflections and glare.

Battery life

The folding smartphone from Samsung achieves a runtime of approximately 9 hours in our real-world Wi-Fi test. This means that it makes good use of its 3,300 mAh battery, but it doesn't manage to last as long as its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip.

The Z Flip3 5G supports fast charging, which requires a separate power adapter with a 15-watt capacity. Wireless charging with up to 10 watts is possible using the appropriate charging stations.

Like the larger Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, the Z Flip3 5G proves to be an all-around improved version of its predecessor. The bright display, the extremely smooth system, and the good quality of the cameras almost make this phone's distinctive feature fade into oblivion.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is a technically mature smartphone that can be stored in a particularly compact way thanks to its foldable screen.

But the foldable screen makes a good impression as well. Although you have to live with a slight ripple at the crease point, this doesn't compromise content reproduction or the touchscreen's responsiveness.

As a result, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is a thoroughly accomplished smartphone that only left us wishing for longer battery life and perhaps a memory card reader. Even if you're not interested in the folding feature, the Samsung phone can easily hold its own against rivals like the OnePlus 9 Pro or the Oppo Find X3 Pro.

Price and availability

At the time of writing, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is widely available from sellers like Amazon (~$925) or Best Buy (~$999), for example.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
