Everyone asks me about the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and I can’t stop praising it

Everyone asks me about the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and I can't stop praising it

I use those Galaxy Z Flip 4, the latest in Samsung’s line of foldable flip phones, for about two weeks as I write this. I didn’t want to review the device as I wouldn’t get a device in time here in India, but Samsung was still kind enough to send me one to try and boy am I glad they did, because this one Phone is almost perfect for a foldable series that has only been on the market for three years.

I’ve preferred the Galaxy Z Flip range to the Galaxy Z Fold range since day one as I prefer a regular phone that folds rather than a phone that turns into a tablet. But it has limitations that have kept me from spending money on one (despite the surprisingly attractive price) and using any of our Galaxy Z Flip review units for more than a couple of weeks.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is just too damn good

The lack of a zoom camera is one of those limitations, and the other was the considerably small battery and slow charging that we found in the first two Galaxy Z Flip models (or three models if we’re counting the Z Flip 5G separately). Well, the Z Flip 4 doesn’t have a zoom camera either, but luckily Samsung has factored in both battery life and battery charging speeds, making it near perfect.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has pretty much everything you would expect from a Samsung flagship. including surprisingly long battery life despite a still not-too-high battery capacity (I assume a significant contribution here comes from the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor). And the Z Flip 4 has more and more people interested in the lineup, including my boss Danny, who’s been on the Galaxy Fold team from the start.

In fact, I was also asked about it by my colleague and SamMobile co-founder, Daniel, and I just couldn’t stop praising it. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 really is something special, and it’s the first Samsung foldable that I recommend to anyone who’s wondering if it’s worth it. Again, it’s not a phone for those who want a full-featured flagship camera experience, but it’s excellent for everyone else.

I understand that there are still some things that need to be worked on. The foldable plastic screen continues to be a strain to come, but bendable glass for phones is still largely a pipe dream, leaving us with the plastic screen for a few years to come. Samsung also needs to work on making the crease less noticeable on its foldable displays. I think the Z Flip 4’s crease is less pronounced than the Z Flip 3’s, but that might just be a placebo effect as I don’t have a Z Flip 3 to compare them side by side.

All in all, if you’re wondering whether you should get a Galaxy Z Flip 4, I’d say the answer is yes, as long as you’re okay with not having a zoom rear camera. You could wait until next year to see what other improvements Samsung is making to the Galaxy Z Flip series, but if waiting isn’t your thing, just go ahead and buy this phone.

And if foldables aren’t your thing and you’re shopping in a similar price bracket, there’s always the Galaxy S22 or Galaxy S22+ to fall back on, although I’d recommend just buying the Snapdragon variant. Or rather, have a little patience and wait and see what the Galaxy S23 series will bring to the table next year. We’re only 4-5 months away from the launch of the Galaxy S23 and you don’t want buyer’s regret just a few months down the road if you choose the S22 or S22+ now (unless you get a terrific discount ).
