A Complete Review of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

It seems like Samsung addressed all the user complaints which they received in the Galaxy Fold, and then created the Galaxy Fold 2 accordingly. The all-new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is a premium device with larger screens and more effective software than its predecessor. It has high-end specifications and a much bigger front screen. But it does not have water-resisting capabilities and has an expensive price tag which makes it out of reach of many buyers.

The first generation of Samsung foldable phones arrived last year and became a highly discussed topic. The Samsung Galaxy Fold was the first mainstream foldable phone which got sold globally despite its hefty price tag. Meanwhile, Samsung did face some challenges with the build quality of the device, which it quickly addressed in the device’s revised edition.

The first Samsung Fold handset was an amazing product, yet it had various issues regarding its design, features and build quality. But with its successor, it seems like Samsung addressed all the user complaints and now it has come up with a product which is better in almost every aspect than its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2: Design & Display

There are already devices that have foldable features like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate XS. Yes, the screen that has an inward-folding is more protected like the Galaxy Fold compared to the screen that folds outwards like Mate XS.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is also an inward folding device in which you will see a massive screen size of 7.6 inches which is comparatively larger than its predecessor. You will see a wider and stretched screen in the Galaxy Z Fold 2. It weighs more than its predecessor, but that weight will make it feel a bit more premium in the user’s hand. Even if it weighs more than the previous Galaxy Fold, it is a bit thinner than its predecessor. You will see less rounded corners in the Galaxy Z Fold 2 which makes it Note 20 Ultra lookalike. The Fold 2 will be available in Mystic Bronze color, and also a Mystic Black option with a matte finish. You can opt for the Mystic Black option if you prefer more business lookalike devices.

The integrated fingerprint sensor into the power button along with the power buttons can be seen on the right side of the device when it gets folded. If you want to customize your device a bit, you can ask for changing the color of the hinge while you order the handset. You can choose from red, blue, gold and more. The device though lacks water-resisting capabilities. However, you get a massive display of 7.6 inches, with a refresh rate of 120Hz, which helps in providing more fluid graphics and smoother scrolling.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2: Camera & Other Specifications

You will see a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor in the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G. It has 12GB of RAM, which will let you do your tasks effectively. However, you would only be getting 256GB of internal storage and that too without any expansion slot.

Coming to the cameras, Fold 2 has a triple camera setup each having 12MPS sensors. The primary camera is f/1.8, which has dual-pixel focusing, which will give you a great response even in low lightings. Its telephoto camera can easily zoom in from 2x optical to 10x, and its ultra-wide snapper lets you capture the landscape views. Its camera app supports Pro Video mode with the help of which you can get an improved audio quality by connecting an external mic.

Conclusion

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will no doubt, have an impressive upgrade over its predecessor. As you can see from the above specifications that the device has a much larger and slightly wider screen size compared to the earlier released Galaxy Fold. It will also have a faster refresh rate to provide a great user experience. The only conditions that go against the Fold 2 are its expensiveness and the lack of water-resisting ability on it.
