New features on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 make it a recommended purchase
In our Camila's early impression of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, the latest flip smartphone gets several major improvements that make it a worthy upgrade if you're coming from an older foldable or brick device. It now has a larger cover screen that enables more practical features like on-screen message reply with a full-sized keyboard. Plus, it works with more apps and services as well, so you don't need to always fully open the handset.
This year, the water-resistant device boasts a more durable hinge that also allows for a gap-less design and thinner form factor. At the same time, this change resulted in a less prominent crease on the display compared to the predecessor.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5's cameras are identical to the last year's clamshell, but the setup remained reliable and benefits from the software optimization. Additionally, under the hood, you can find a snappy Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 paired with a faster type of RAM and onboard storage. This chip is expected to deliver better battery life too.
