Samsung recently announced its new folding devices: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3. With the Z Fold3 being the company’s flagship, it has 2 displays, the first one being the cover display is a 6.2 inch 2X Dynamic AMOLED Infinity O Display and the main being a tablet-like 7.6 inch 2X Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display. Unlike the Z Fold 2, both the Displays here have a 120 Hz refresh rate, which is to be considered in this price. But should you still consider buying this folding monstrosity over a flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra or an iPhone 12 Pro Max? Well let’s find out
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Processor
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is powered by a Snapdragon 888, which is the best processor available in the market. The Adreno 660 GPU is okay, handles all the tasks that you throw on it. The Z Fold3 is available in 2 variants: 12GB RAM and 256 GB ROM or 12GB RAM and 512GB ROM. Since 12GB RAM is standard, switching between apps is smooth and Productivity apps like Office and Google Sheets can be very realistic, considering the fact that when folded out you have a lot of real estates to work with, and can handle just about anything.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Battery
The Z Fold3 has a 4400 mAh battery, which is split by a 2200 mAh battery on both sides. It lasts for about 12 hours 30 minutes, which is not the best, but it also matters how long you use the bigger screen. Charging also takes more than an hour, even with the 25W Fast Charger which is not the best, but it is all about that main screen and how long you use it. The Wireless Charger is also present and it is supposed to be, for this price range.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Display
The Cover Screen on the Z Fold3 is actually the same as the Z Fold2, except for the fact that it has a 120 Hz refresh rate. The 6.2 inch AMOLED HD+ Display with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The main display is a 7.6 inch AMOLED Display with HDR10+ and 120 Hz Refresh rate. Samsung has claimed that it is covered with ultra-thin glass and is more durable. However, applying light pressure leaves marks on the screen. That’s one of the reasons why Samsung had to invent a new technology for the S Pen to work, but the verdict is that poking with the S Pen or anything sharp harder can damage the screen.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 Camera
The Z Fold3 has an overload of cameras. There are 3 cameras on the back, one selfie camera on the cover screen, and one under-display selfie camera on the main screen, which is kinda useless. The Primary Camera consists of a 12 MP Wide angle camera ( f/1.8 ) with Dual Pixel PDAF and Optical Image Stabilization, a 12 MP Telephoto camera ( f/2.4 ) with 2x Optical Zoom, and a 12 MP Ultrawide Camera ( f/2.2 ).
The Under Display Camera is a 4 MP ( f/1.8 ) and the Cover Camera is a 10 MP Wide Sensor ( f/2.2 ). The Primary Camera can record at 4k 60fps, 1080p at 60/240 fps, or 720p at 960fps. The Selfie camera can record 4k at 30fps or 1080p at 30fps. The Under Display camera is not that good for recording and might be useful only for Web Calls. You can use the cover screen camera or use the Primary Camera for taking selfies.
