Here is a closer look at why the newly released Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 – the world’s most powerful smartphone with cutting-edge folding technology, is really starting to take off.
We will also be comparing the latest model to previous models and taking a look at some of the pros and cons so you can decide for yourself whether it’s worth investing in.
Let’s dive straight in to discover all there is to know about the Samsung foldable smartphone and why it’s now proving to be so popular.
Are there any benefits of having a foldable smartphone?
There are several benefits of having a foldable smartphone, one of which is the ability to multitask. Multiple apps can be open and in use at the same time.
For example, you could be reading the latest news 32Red has to offer, making payments, ordering groceries, editing photos, and watching YouTube videos simultaneously.
Multitasking like this isn’t possible from a regular-sized smartphone, and tablets are too big for some people. Therefore, many regard foldable smartphones as the ideal hybrid between smartphones and tablets.
Foldable smartphones are more powerful than regular smartphones because there’s more space for hardware. This means more power for cameras that can pay greater attention to detail, giving you much sharper images and videos with amazing clarity.
The other obvious benefit is that you have a much larger screen, which is great for watching your favourite 4K Ultra HD movies and television shows on sites like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video.
They are also fantastic for playing today’s graphically demanding, high-end triple-A video games, like Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Cyberpunk 2077.
What is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5?
If you’re in the market for a smartphone with folding screen technology, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the device for you. Here are three reasons why it’s the best option for people looking to invest in a foldable smartphone today:
- The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the best/most powerful foldable smartphone on the market
- It also comes with the best built-in application software support than any other book-style foldable smartphone provides
- It has a huge 7.7-inch foldable display and an impressive screen resolution
Some of the other reasons why it’s known for being the world’s best foldable smartphone are that it has iPX8 water resistance capability, and it offers an extremely versatile filming experience because it uses a combination of three hi-tech lenses – 10MP 3x zoom, 12MP ultrawide, and 50MP primary.
Although there are very few other differences compared to this new device and previous foldable smartphones from Samsung, it’s around $150 (approx. £100) more expensive than the previous model. This is the only real downside. Also, the crease is still visibly present.
It comes with up to 1 TB of storage and uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 operating system for rapid and reliable everyday performance. The battery should last you all day, but it’s the same battery used in previous models.
All-in-all, it’s a fantastic piece of kit, and a technological marvel, thanks to the special type of OLED screen (not glass) that can bend without cracking or splitting – which is exactly what these types of phones are all about.
They may not be for everyone, but most people will agree that folding phones are certainly a talking point, especially when you pull out your new device in a room full of people with boring, regular-sized smartphones.
Who knows if they will continue to become more popular or if they will just be a passing fad? Only time will tell. If the price tag can come down over the coming years, which it eventually will, perhaps it will encourage even more people to ditch their traditional smartphones in favour of a snazzy new foldable smartphone.
