87.4% Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G Smartphone Review - A great and expensive foldable phone | Notebookcheck
Samsung has made numerous improvements to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G compared to its predecessor. There is a new hinge with more options, almost full screen displays and better battery life, for example. But the high price has remained from last year's model.

So if you are to buy this premium foldable phone, then there’s no doubt that you can enjoy the unique display setup and form factor, its beastly performance, and a good set of cameras. Yet you have to make sure that you handle it with extra care. If you’re admittedly clumsy, you might need to re-think this.

80% Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 review: Your new flexible friend
Source: Pocket Lint English
Of all the manufacturers to try and create a folding smartphone with one big tablet-sized screen inside, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the most complete package. It's a huge improvement on the first-generation device in terms of design, but issues remain with the flexible display market still being relatively young. Oh, and it's really expensive.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review: The Best Foldable to Date!
Source: Unbox English
Samsung knows that the Z Fold 2 is a niche product that will appeal to early adopters. The ones who want to be on the bleeding edge of the tech scene and, if you were eyeing the first iteration of the Fold but have been sitting on the fence, this is definitely the one to push you past the tipping point. The improvements the company has made to the device are fantastic and, any qualms we might have had in the past have definitely been erased with this year’s iteration.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review: Return of the Ultimate Couch Phone
Source: Droid Life English
We’ve already said this here and there, but let it be known, now and forever: Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the ultimate couch phone. We say this because due to certain things, such as no IP rating and certain awkwardness when using it in public, the ideal place to use this phone is on your couch. It feels so good to just open it up and scroll through apps with that 120Hz display and smooth Snapdragon 865+ processor with 12GB RAM. And since Android tablets aren’t really a thing, the Z Fold 2 is the next best thing, so we’re taking full advantage of that.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 First Impressions: Have the Creases of This Fold Been Ironed Out?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
To sum it all up, it's been over a year since the first Samsung Galaxy Fold was launched, and now its successor is slicker and better designed. However, it is still not practical for everyday use. And at Rs. 1,49,999, it's definitely not affordable by any means. You can definitely buy this device to show it off, but you'll still have to be very careful with it and it will be awkward a lot of the time. It does have tonnes of interesting features and potential to be discovered, but my initial reaction after spending one day with it is that Samsung can still refine it further.

75% Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Review: Solid Form, but Lacks the Factor
Source: Htxt Africa English
The R50k price tag on the Galaxy Z Fold2 is a lot to process. That said, Samsung has vastly improved this iteration compared to its predecessor to produce a powerful and one-of-a-kind piece of hardware. The missing component, however, is making the most of the 7.6" foldable screen onboard. As such, it may be a case of third time's a charm of the Galaxy Fold series.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 first impressions: A monster of a Microsoft phone
Source: On MSFT English
This is a great phone. It’s a big screen in a small package, without compromise. I bought it because it does all the things I really want in a phone, ie: great battery life, beautiful screens, easy to use, great cameras and an unparalleled main display. It’s going to be great at what I use a phone for: taking and sharing pictures, catching up on Twitter and email, watching movies and playing music, and perhaps doing the occasional work in Office. I still contend that the best productivity suite available is a laptop and a phone, and I don’t see myself leaving a laptop at home when I travel (if I ever travel again). But the Z Fold 2 isn’t a small laptop, it’s a big phone, one that, amazingly, folds up. I’m excited to get past the setup phase and really start using this phone.

The question is now the same as before – how will Samsung improve the Fold for next year? Put an S Pen in the hinge, like the Nintendo DS? And with Samsung’s bold declaration of “farewell, flat”, what’s going to happen to the S and Note series? Will there be an affordable foldable phone like the Fold?

There's no denying the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a step in the right direction. It's fun, it's different, it's unique -- but it's also unfortunately hindered by a couple of fundamental aspects that still need some work. For the amount of money that you might pay to have this new type of phablet, is what the Z Fold 2 provides right now enough? JV ponders it over.

Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, Samsung’s much improved second gen Android phone that unfolds into a 7.6” OLED tablet. The Fold 2 has a significantly larger borderless 6.2” outer OLED glass display and a flexible inner 120Hz UTG (Ultra Thin Glass) display. It has two 10MP selfie cameras (front and inner) and triple rear cameras. The phone ships with the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor in all countries, has 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. It’s available in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black, has the same excellent hinge as the Galaxy Z Flip, has wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, has 5G (low, mid and mmWave) and is available on AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and unlocked in the US. As ever, it’s crazy expensive, but this time Samsung, carriers and some retailers are offering generous trade-ins to offset the $2,000 price.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 review: Big, bold, beautiful and everything in between
Source: Sam Mobile English
In my view, you should buy it if you can get the most out of all the incredible features that it offers. Don’t buy it if the bulk of your usage comprises of social media apps, because half of them look terrible on the main display anyway (not Samsung’s fault), and if you’re just looking for great cameras. That’s like buying a Ferrari and only driving it in the city center. You’d be much better off with one of many great high-end phones Samsung has released this year.

Finally, there's really not much that can be done about prohibitive pricing at this point in time. That final hindrance of foldable display adoption will, hopefully, get addressed gradually in time. However, if the price is really the only objective minus we are left with, then the Z Fold2 deserves nothing short of a recommendation. One with some major asterisk signs attached, but a recommendation nonetheless.

With the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung might just have the first great foldable. Its design has been fortified significantly. Both of its screens are bigger and better than before. It uses the fastest smartphone processor you’ll find in an Android phone today. And best of all, the Fold 2 is even more capable than the last one. When it comes to hardware, Samsung did a fantastic job. But the future of devices like isn’t just about hardware. Some of Samsung’s software choices continue to confuse, and getting the most of the Fold 2 requires plenty of time and effort. Beyond that, lingering app compatibility issues mean devices like the Fold 2 still feel inconsistent. Samsung did the hard work of making hardware that’s worth using — now we just need developers to start taking these things seriously.

The foldable future of phones has taken a few different forms from several manufacturers, Samsung included, but Samsung’s marketing might will probably mean this version will prevail. It’s a phone and a tablet in one, which is still amazing. But foldables are still in their infancy, and the price matches the Z Fold 2’s lofty ambitions.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G First Look Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
After spending a few days with Samsung’s second generation Galaxy Z Fold 2 Android smartphone that unfolds into a tablet, Lisa Gade offers you her impressions as a Fold 1 owner and as a tech reviewer. Clearly, much has improved over the first gen, with several design innovations from the Galaxy Z Flip finding their way to Samsung’s larger flexible OLED display phone. The outer display is now edge-to-edge and much larger, then inner UTG (ultra thin glass) display is larger, smoother and has 120Hz refresh, the hinge opens firmly at a variety of angles like a laptop, and the ugly inner camera cluster is replaced by an o-hole Infinity Display style selfie camera. Of course, it has the Snapdragon 865 Plus CPU, 5G and other internals on par with the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 line. Triple rear cameras and a new matte finish are here as well. Lisa will post a final review after testing the phone for a few weeks, before the Sept. 18 launch date. The price is scary as ever, at $1,999 in the US.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 650: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 640 in the Snapdragon 855 SoC and offers 50% more compute units (ALUs). For Android it should be one of the fastest graphics cards in 2020.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 865+ (Plus): High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in mid 2020 and manufactured in 7 nm at TSMC (improved N7P). Integrates one “Prime Core” based on a ARM Cortex-A77 architecture clocked at up to 3.1 GHz. Three more performance cores are also based on the A77 but clock up to 2.42 GHz. Furthermore, four energy saving cores are integrated that are based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture and clock at up to 1.8 GHz. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 6E modem (including 60 GHz mmWave support), a Hexagon 698 DSP (up to 15 TOPS) and a Spectra 480 ISP. The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR5 memory with up to 2,750 MHz. LTE is not included anymore in the SoC, but the external Snapdragon X55 5G modem has to be used.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


7.60":

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
